Excerpt: "...want to tell you about Crusader Kings first before go to the next Paradox’s games. This Crusader Kings setting begin in the year 1066 and it will end at early 1400’s.

Conclusion: Being a fan of Paradox Games it will come as no surprise that I love this game. However, its not specifically because it is made by them. Moreover, the game won me over. Ive played both the Europa Universalis and Hearts of Iron games more times than I care to mention, but this game is a little different. Ok its a lot different. Infact its quite different to most games out there.
You need to be a hardcore gamer to appreciate this game

Conclusion: As any fan of Paradox's grand strategy games will tell you. This is a fantastic game in line with the Europa Universalis style gaming that Paradox produce. You need to really be into the time period and type of game you're getting here. This isn't a standard wargame but a mix of strategy and role-playing. The point of the game is to expand your Dynasty and gain prestige whilst keeping your vassals happy and the bigger the empire the more difficult it is.
Summary: Crusader kings 2 war ein Spiel an das ich wenig Erwartungen legte und endlich mal positiv überrascht wurde. Derzeit eifern ansonsten ja alle Spielemacher dem Total War Prinzip nach. Total War bietet Strategie plus hervorragende Grafik. An das Vorbild heran kommt derzeit aber niemand. Crusader kings 2 geht einen ganz anderen Weg. Statt Schlachten gibt es hier weitaus mehr Tiefe in der Strategie.
