  • 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: E' un po' di tempo che mi capita di non riuscire a trovare il tempo per giocare. Sarà l'età, la famiglia ed i molti impegni, ma spesso mi trovo a non aprire ed analizzare titoli che pure potrebbero essere meritori.
  • Pros: Gioco molto bello e coinvolgente, ottima l'idea alla base e perfetta la sua realizzazione pratica.
  • Cons: Gioco molto bello e coinvolgente, ottima l'idea alla base e perfetta la sua realizzazione pratica.

  • Summary: Для хардкорных стратегов и любителей добротных исторических игр EU 2 — просто вселенских размеров подарок. Для всех остальных — нудный тетрисообразный процесс собирания тибериума и клепания юнитов. Вторая часть, несмотря на небольшие отличия от оригинала, возводит понимание этого в ранг правила. Даже и не пытайтесь, если вам просто не во что поиграть. P.S.
