Have You Tried the New RISK Facebook Game?

I just got the news last night that EA had launched their newest social game, and it’s based on one of the most beloved strategy board games of all time: Risk.  The game, entitled RISK: Factions, takes from a recent version of RISK launched on XBox and PSN and adds a few cool social features that make the game speedy and competitive.  Our sister blog Inside Social Games had a great interview with the Producer of the game, and he talks about the sanctity of keeping a strong multiplayer element in the game.

Check out the interview here and let us know what you think of the game.  Do you like the player-versus-player aspect or would your rather stick to co-opetition titles like The Sims Social?
