Risk: Factions on XBLA this Wednesday

EA's eye-catching adaptation.

EA's cartoon interpretation of Risk - dubbed Risk: Factions - will be the other game on Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday.

For 800 Microsoft Points you're given a game of world domination painted in bright, eye-catching colours. The twist is provided by the five unique factions. Two of these are lead by American square-jaw McGutterpants and Chinese-themed leader Chairman Meow. Sigh.

Online multiplayer is in, and there's a chance to earn items for your Xbox Live Avatar while playing. Our Risk: Factions gallery offers a glimpse of what to expect.

This Wednesday's other Xbox Live Arcade game is Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project.
