VERY hard, but fun

  • 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.

Great expansion

  • Summary: When I first bought this expansion, I had the impression that I will be able to play as the Norse and do a lot of Viking raiding and conquering. I then found out after I bought it that it not only allows me to play as the Vikings, but the Mongols as well. The expansion also added some features to the technology system and supposively to the rebels system (as mentioned by the developers in a video diary, but I can't seem to see the difference) However, I was a bit...

Great game, tough learning curve

  • Summary: If you're really into medieval warfare and politics, this is the game for you. I learned a lot about medieval politics and succession through this game (how much is historically accurate is another question). However, if you want to be truly successful, you really need to study up on how to get your hands on the most land... it's not the most intuitive game out there.

Winning the world with trade

  • Summary: I quickly found that republics end up with lots of money, especially if properly managed. Of course, they also have the potential to spend even greater amounts of money. I think this is my favorite of the expansions. It offers a new twist to the game, and definitely requires a different touch. Republics rely much more on mercenaries and trade, which is a definite change.

Great Game, minor flaws

Henry Walker, Amazon

  • Summary: First of all, this game is great. It's by far the most in-depth and complex strategy game I've ever played. On the other had, I'll admit that I was bored for the first 30-60 minutes of playing. Also, I had to watch several guides to understand it. Still, once you get past the initial boring and frustrating part, it's amazing, and impossible to stop playing unless you physically can't play it. Some tips for beginners: a) start as something small.

Extremely Detailed Strategy Game

  • Summary: My 12 year old son bought this game and loved it. He kept asking me to play. I finally tried and was overwhelmed by the massive amount of information and it seemed too complicated. I went back later and tried again at his urging. This time I read through some more of the tutorials and tried the game again. I'm really enjoying it. There is still so much to the game that I am sure I can learn but I am enjoying what I know thus far.

An hour of learning to play and all doubts faded. This is a great game!

  • Summary: Like many similar games, Crusader Kings II is difficult in the first little while to understand. Even with the tips you wonder what am I doing? After a bit of a time commitment, you are immersed, learning as you go, and then little by little, you can't stop playing. Unlike the Europa Universalis or Hearts of Iron series, this game is about you dynasty. You take the long view, choosing spouses, titles(duchies, counties, etc.

Hard To learn

  • Summary: I got this game because I wanted a game of thrones game and this is as close as I could get too the real thing. I like this game its just hard too learn at first and may put some people off.

Be Paranoid !

  • Summary: This is a nicely polished immersive history game. It goes into the detail of the political and power struggles facing medieval "countries" and their rulers. The detail is superb, but it takes time to learn. The map is beautiful and shows multiple overlays of useful information. I would have rated it higher, but I'm not a People person, and struggle with the intrigue. Please note that it requires an internet connection to Steam, or it won't operate.
