* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Once you have built nuclear weapons, you could declare war on a defenseless country like Haiti and nuke it, over and over again. Even using a cheat to give yourself nukes just so you can nuke Haiti or other defenseless countries, several hundred times.

* RiskStyleMap: Hundreds of provinces. The third installment has somewhere in the region of ''ten thousand'' regions, achieved by subdividing territories and provinces into smaller areas that must be fought over individually.

* RiskStyleMap: Hundreds of provinces. The third installment has somewhere in the region of ''ten thousand'' regions, achieved by subdividing territories and provinces into smaller areas that must be fought over individually. The fourth installment has even more, but makes the bloat less notable by making provinces nameless and relevant purely for unit movement; they're essentially somewhat irregularly shaped hexes. Everything except unit movement - production, resources, infrastructure and supply - is handled at the level of 'states', of which there are a mere few hundred.

Added DiffLines:

* PuppetState: Present in all four games, with the Communists being particularly fond of creating them. ''IV'' adds a tiered system of levels of dependence, ranging from a Dominion (like Australia or Canada) that's largely independent except in foreign policy, to a somewhat autonomous Colony (like UsefulNotes/TheRaj), to a totally subservient Integrated Puppet (like Manchuko). The tiers are indicated with [[ChessMotif chess pieces]], from pawn to queen.
