Crusader Kings II

Strategy Informer
21 February 2012
  • Conclusion: Whilst the subject matter and the set-up may not be to everyone’s liking, Crusader Kings II is definitely the most impressive Paradox game to date. The game mechanics are an interesting twist on a well-known genre, the code itself is highly polished, and it’s just a really fun and interesting game...

  • Conclusion: Crusader Kings II is a masterpiece of a game, and one that has reminded me of just what is possible in the world of PC gaming. In its deep historical waters, there are hundreds (thousands?) of hours of gameplay awaiting those hearty souls willing to master its complex, sandbox gameplay.
  • Pros: Incredible historical depth; addictive sandbox gameplay, random events that add real spice to each game.
  • Cons: Not all gameplay mechanics are clear; Plots and Ambitions are underdeveloped; steep learning curve.

Review: Crusader Kings II

New Gamer Nation
14 February 2012
  • Conclusion: Final Verdict: If you’ve ever wanted to get into the wacky historical simulation niche that Paradox has built up, Crusader Kings II is a perfect newbie gateway. It’s not as complex as other “grand strategies”, which may rankle vets. However, it’s a huge step forward for Paradox in terms of QA.

  • Excerpt: Crusader Kings II on first look seems like just another game styled after so many other well-known games that use an overhead map and a time period. That’s where things steer into a different direction. This game may well be the best game created by the game smiths at Paradox Development Studio.

27 February 2012
  • Conclusion: We know that once you get into a grand strategy game they can be immensely rewarding. Winning a round of Call of Duty multiplayer is like winning a game of tig in the playground; ‘winning’ a grand strategy game is like wrestling an Olympic champion to the dirt before knocking out both Klitschko...
  • Pros: Brilliant dynamic narratives. Deep, rewarding gameplay. Clean interface.
  • Cons: Tough learning curve. Military aspect of the game is a bit thin.

  • Conclusion: My wife hates me. I gave her Aquitaine and she calmed down a bit, but I still think she's mad at me for some reason, and I've no idea why. If she doesn't buck her ideas up soon I'm going to have to kill her.
  • Pros: + Incredible depth + Massive longevity + Immersive experience + Unique storytelling
  • Cons: - Vertical learning curve
