Personal review
Un juego de estrategia global de interfaz directa y sencilla, basada en un escenario tipo Segundo Gran Juego (AKA Guerra Fría) poniéndose en el peor escenario: una ofensiva nuclear.

Una enormísima crítica a la guerra en general, un juego entretenido por su juego de engaños y subterfugios, donde la victoria se la lleva quien sepa cuando actuar en el momento apropiado y evita que el rival haga lo mismo.

Aunque ganar en este juego supone ser el menos perdedor, el que menos aniquilado resulta. Es un juego muy interesante, aunque algo repetitivo.

P.S.: Me recuerda mucho a la película Juegos de Guerra.

Official description
Introversion Software presents its third title, DEFCON, a stunning online multiplayer simulation of global thermonuclear war.
You play the role of a military Commander hidden deep within an Underground bunker. Your mission - to successfully exterminate your enemy's civilian population whilst disabling their ability to attack your own. Start by launching your battleships, subs and bombers in order to decimate your opponent's defences. Scramble together your alliances but remember only one can stand victorious.

Prepare your pre-emptive strike before one of your supposed allies gets the same idea. Choose the perfect moment for betrayal, obliterating your opponents with an apocalyptic thermonuclear barrage, but get it wrong and their devastating counter attack will bring you to your knees!

It's Global Thermonuclear War, and nobody wins. But maybe - just maybe - you can lose the least.
