Crusader Kings 2: Rajas of India (PC) – Review

voletic.com
1 April 2014
  • Conclusion: While Rajas of India is not as massive an update as the Old Gods was it does provide an interesting addition to the title’s overall religious metagame. I’ve noticed that Muslim factions don’t simply overrun the Byzantine empire within the first century or so. The Indian factions also reintroduce the political game which hasn’t been necessary for the last few patches.
  • Cons: New multiplayer can be a little slow., Multiplayer servers can be difficult to find on occasion., Some of the additions don’t feel like they have a massive effect on the game in Western Europe.

  • Excerpt: The developers at the Paradox Development Studio have done it again: they have truly broken expectations. When Crusader Kings II came out, there were some complaints that it was an unpolished game and that it was only a slight upgrade from its critically acclaimed predecessor. However, it soon became clear that Paradox was in the market to shatter expectations through the bountiful treasures of their expansions.

  • Summary: Videogames and history have a wonderful and colorful relationship. Thousands of years of warfare, culture clashes, technological advances, political upheaval and intrigue have given developers a massive pool of content to work with and it's given players countless "what if?" scenarios and outlets for their power fantasies. Despite this, 2004's Crusader Kings managed to stand out from the crowd with its focus on dynasties and the elaborate web of medieval relationships.

Crusader Kings 2

  • Excerpt: Crusader Kings is the series of grand strategy games from Paradox Interactive. A suitable genre as Crusader Kings 2 really is grand, and does take a whole lot of strategy. There were many kingdoms covering Europe and the Middle East between the years of 1066 and 1453, and you play the role of Count, Earl, Duke, Prince, King, Sultan, or Emperor to one of the many dynasties covering the old world.

The Old Gods Make A New Comeback

  • Excerpt: I absolutely love medieval history. I have dug myself into a great many books learning about the old kingdoms. So when I was given the opportunity to take control of these kingdoms I was happy. Paradox Interactive always does a great job with historical simulations that push the boundaries, and Crusader Kings and Crusader Kings II are among their best.

Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods

  • Conclusion: If you’ve never picked up a CKII expansion before, The Old Gods would be the perfect place to start. Saying that, there’s no reason you shouldn’t pick up the other expansions either, but we guess it depends on what you like to play as. One of this generation’s greatest strategy games has just gotten a whole lot better, and with the recent news that Paradox have committed to another two years’ worth of expansions for this game, God only knows where this game is going to...

Crusader Kings II : The Old Gods

  • Excerpt: Pagans have more fun. That’s the lesson to be learned from Paradox Interactive’s latest expansion, Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods . For the first time in the series you can play as the heathen Norsemen, along with assorted other pagan infidels across Europe and the East. It’s an addition that increases the player’s options to a truly staggering degree.

  • Excerpt: Crusader Kings II needs almost no introduction. One of the grandest of the grand strategy titles from Paradox Interactive, Crusader Kings II presents a player with the monumental task of guiding a medieval dynasty to greatness through micromanaging everything from fiefs and titles to marriages and war (often being the same thing). Recently, two new DLCs came out for this award winning game: The Republic and Sunset Invasion.Copyright ©1995-2014, Wargamer Ltd.
