You can buy it at RegNow for that price.
- You can choose from a large list of political candidates including Hilary Clinton, Barack Obama, John McCain, and many more (it even includes Al Gore!!). - There is a wide range of categories to focus on, you can't just focus on a few. You'll definitely lose the election.
- In the same screen for about the entire game. - Loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong. - You can't create your own character to run for president with.

Whether it's placing ads against your opponents or having your crusaders campaign for you, in President Forever, it's not exactly this exciting!

This is an awkward game, however the idea for this kind of game has struck gold. It seems a game like this would be easier to figure out. I found myself kind of bored during this game. I can talk about politics, but this was too boring. I was in the same screen most of the game. I would think it would have been cool to make my own character and run for president, but you can't. Although, there are a lot of characters you can choose from.

The importance of each political topic is handled very well. In fact, I was impressed with this, so much, it saved me from giving this game a one. It makes you focus on topics like Same-Sex Marriage, Business Tax, Personal Tax, Iran, Iraq, Homeland Security, Heath Care, Energy, Abortion, Immigration, just to name a few. I also like how you have Crusaders that campaign for you. I played with Barack Obama, for no particular reason, and he had Oprah Winfrey, Dick Durbin, and Michelle Obama to choose from. However, I think they can have a little too much influence. For example, Chelsea Clinton campaigned for Hilary against Obama, and I lost a few momentum points. You get one or so every day, I don't think she should have that much power. She's Hilary's daughter, if it were Hilary, it's understandable. There are also three different difficulty levels, which mold out pretty nicely as well.


Overall, I recommend this game to the political fan, someone who has the time to sit through long political speeches, debates, etc. I could, but I don't. Political fan or not, this game left me asking for more. All I really did was click buttons and read things for 2.5 hours and I haven't even gotten through November 2007! (The second time I played..)
