I remember that game fondly. I wish they'd do a remake of it; it'd
probably sell well even compared to the games out there today!
(Especially if one could add in network capability, to allow multiple
players and carriers, as many humans per side as desired.) The few
games I've seen try to remake this concept have tended to fail badly;
this is the only good "you are in multiple places at the same time and
none of them are on pause" simulator I've ever seen. (And you know
you're not dealing with Yet Another [fill_in_the_blank] when the
documentation starts with:
"The following information is of a highly confidential and sensitive
nature and must not fall into the hands of dangerous and irresponsible
persons. I am, of course, speaking of politicians and journalists.")

For those of us who haven't played it, I highly reccomend it if you're
looking for a time killer. Fortunately, there is a PC version available
(or so I'm told), and given the game's age, its makers are unlikely to
care about piracy.
