Summary: I'll be honest I've only ever used this item in a mod of the game (Game of Thrones mod. Check it out.) But its pretty cool. It opens up this new "Republic" tab that you can access, where you compete in the elections and stuff. You also get this pretty sweet Family Mansion that you can build up and fill with cool stuff. It's pretty nice. The only real drawback is that it locks your succession into Agnatic Seniority, which becomes a real pain after a few generations.
Summary: Never - EVER - buy a downloadable game from Amazon that requires a Steam account. I bought and downloaded this game. See the price? Yeah, that's how much I paid. When I entered the product code, I got a message from Steam that said the product code was already registered to another account. Hmmmm....really? Whose account? It didn't say. There was an option on the message to "Retrieve the account".
Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. It's pretty good if you like to (or if you can) play in end game. However you can't play as the Aztecs in DLC. I would only recommend if you play or conquer Western Europe. The Aztecs are basically the Mongols of the West. Spoiler: If you have EUIV converter DLC with this DLC active it will convert a new North and South America...
Summary: PROS: This game beats you down with confusion, you have no idea what is going on or how to play it, It frustrates you to no end. You end up hating the game so much that you become determined to figure out how to play it.Then, once you learn how to play it all time stops, well time for you anyway. I started playing on a Tuesday night when i was done it was Wednesday night.
Summary: there is no other game made like it , this is the quitessential simulator of being a noble in the Middle Ages , you can be a king, a duke , baron, or maybe even the great Khan of the mongols! this game is about dynasties and power the aquisition of it and maintaining of a royal line throughout the turmoil and chaos of the times. I recommend it to mature people of any age who know and love the period in history. it is a fun game and educational in some ways.
Summary: Best grand strategy game ever created. Option to play in steam's offline mode for when you can't commit a couple hours to multiplayer. Multiplayer does require some port opening on your local router.
Summary: I have played CK2 since it came out and this is the only one that didn't make that much sence but I find it fun. when the Aztecs invade you attack back, depending on who you play as and if you don't get destroyed straight away or not, it is a lot of fun and everyone who has CK2 should get this and give it a go.
Summary: Warning, incoming rant! The short review is, this is garbage. Ok, rant beginning now. So, I had been playing my first game as Count of Dublin to learn the mechanics and strategy behind CKII. After almost 200 years of building to become King of Ireland, Scotland, and Wales with 67% out of 80% to create the Emperor of Britannia title, the RIDICULOUS AND UNHISTORICAL "sunset invasion" begins and the Aztecs land about 110,000 troops in Scotland.
Summary: I really do like this game. But it escapes my mediocre intellectual level. I watch Let's Plays of it on YouTube instead. I can now enjoy the game without wanting to talk a long walk on a short pier.
