I would like to know if the new game includes primary battles as that would increase the fun and strategizing involved in game play. It would also better reflect the real world as the AI and the gamer would both be forced to take into account ideological shifts and intra-party insurgencies such as the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street.
For example, suppose that we could have primary options on the GOP side in which we could not only pit Romney against Gingrich and Santorum, but what about a race that would see Rockefeller run against Goldwater for the soul of the Republican Party, or a race in which the player can pit their own customized Eisenhower against Reagan? On the Democratic side we could have Bobby Kennedy run against Johnson in a replay of 1968, and we could have FDR campaigning against Bill Clinton?
Does the existence of PM2012 mean that PM2008 will be wiped out, or we can continue to play both? Moreover, what about the Win-Customized candidates from PM2008? Can we transfer them to 2012? If not, are there any plans to allow people to upload their own candidates? I would also like to know why some of the uploaded candidates were stronger than the ones in the game [Josiah Bartlett and Leo McGarry from West Wing in particular] and how we could design our own candidates with enhanced statistics.
I would like it if issues such as War on Drugs, Free Trade, Nuclear Disarmament, Diplomacy with China, Student Debt, Humanitarian Intervention, Arab Spring, Democracy Promotion, Natural Gas Exploration, Nuclear Energy Expansion, Stem Cell Research, Contraception in Health Plans, Wall Street Reform, Tax Reform, Grand Bargain and more are included in the game in addition to those already mentioned.
Also, can we buy it as a disc rather than a download purchase? The Internet speed is weak where I live.
Most importantly,I would like to know if the system requirements match my computer;
