An excellent but hardly-known sim, Conflict achieves what it sets out to be in the title: a political simulation of age-old conflicts in the turbulent middle east.Set foreign, economic, and military policies to either promote the peace or instigate regional wars-- it's your call. The game has a decent AI, many realistic options (including <gasp!> nuclear weapons program), and good replay value. It's also very well-written. With very high addictiveness quotient, excellent realism, and virtually unlimited replayability, this is one game fans of political sims simply MUST play. Two thumbs up, way up!
