  • Summary: For those of you which have experienced the joy and excitement of Europa Universalis, there probably isn't enough here in the second version to promote a purchase. But, if you have not played either version, EU2 is a great way to introduce you to the wonderfully complex gameplay found in the Europa world. Europa Universalis II is a very complete historical real-time strategy title, even with sub-par graphics and sound. Fans of strategy games should not miss this title.

Europa Universalis II

The Next Level
15 July 2003
  • Excerpt: I remember - it seemed to be a little while ago - waiting for the Mac release of Civilization III to come to fruition. The Macintosh was, and still is, a platform starving for strategically intriguing games that take longer than a round of Risk or a Risk clone to complete. Sid Meier's effort was a beacon of light, for the most part, in a dark sea devoid of further strategy on such a grand scale.

  • Excerpt: If you played Europa Universalis, you may feel like you have been there before when you play Europa Universalis II. It has the same look, the same feel, lets face that it's basically the same game with nifty new options and even more comprehensive economic and diplomatic systems. There are also more decisions for you to make as ruler of your nation of choice. But after a game has started, the differences will become more and more clear to you.

  • Excerpt: Don't hate it for being great in spite of what are mostly cosmetic and game balance tweaks in this sterling sequel. If you're craving a truly deft, authentic historical strategy game, this version of Paradox's magnum opus is the one to own.

  • Summary: "Europa Universalis II je skvìlá strategie, která nabízí velkou øadu novinek a možností a je urèitì o nìkolik úrovní lepší než pùvodní verze. Samotný obsah hry zùstává stejný. Hráè si vybere jeden národ a snaží se ho pozvednout po ekonomické a politické stránce tak, aby pøevyšoval ostatní. Velkou novinkou a plusem je možnost založit si kolonii v Americe a obohacovat tak své impérium. ...
