Take a Risk on Europa

stevencoz..., Ciao
26 February 2009
  • Excerpt: "...credit for this alone. Europa Universalis 2 is two dimensional, with quite literally hundreds of provinces, over a thousand in fact, and you can control any or maybe all of them. This is Risk on a massive scale, with far more involved, such as various buildings, military, religion and even generals with different abilities. Despite this, it is surprisingly simplistic to learn, maybe with less involved than it seems at first. However, mastering it ...
  • Pros: Variation of gameplay and historical accuracy .
  • Cons: The music is far too repetitive .

Universal Europe

iancozens..., Ciao
7 March 2006
  • Excerpt: " Europa Universalis 2 is an excellent strategy game, where you are in control! You can control any country in any period between 1419 and 1820, as long as the province you select had been discovered at that time. North and South America are included from about 1700, for example. This game is similar to Risk, but has hundreds more provinces, as well as including diplomacy, religion, economics, army, navy and city building. Basically, this game has ...
  • Pros: Scenario editor

User Review

  • Excerpt: This is the sequel of europa universalis and what a game it is. It is HUGE. The game comes with several scenarios, being the biggest of the the Grand Campaign, an amazing epic quest where you control a nation (or several because you can change nation in the middle of the game) all the way from 1419 to 1819, from the frist coloniztion to the revolt of the colonies, through the napalionic wars.

Extremely fun when it works right --- get the patches

12 April 2004
  • Summary: Paradox is now up to Patch 1.07 on Europa Universalis II, which can be interpreted two ways --- it means that Paradox is quite attentive to the needs of its customers, and responds to them. However, it also means that there are so many bugs in the game (and Paradox is justly infamous for extremely buggy games) that it has thus far required 7 patches. Trying to play the game without any patches? I wish you the best of luck.

Chess for the History Buff

Chris, Amazon
30 December 2003
  • Summary: Do you enjoy strategy games that aren't a real-time strategy click fest? Did you major in history? Then Europa Universalis is the game for you but be careful because you may never set it down. Being a history buff, any game which allows me to conquer the world in the Age of Mercantilism is a dream come true so you can imagine how quickly I picked this one up.

Challenging

Stephen Sarrica, Amazon
2 December 2003
  • Summary: Very challenging game! Expects serious commitment from the player in terms of learning mechanics --after going throught the tutorial and playing three games, I am still unclear on some of the finer points. Great depth and detail... actual historical events affect gameplay. Definitely one of the neatest ways I've seen to make history come alive. I have not experience the crashes another reviewer commented on... there is a downloadable update available from the publisher.

Difficult interface and buggy

David Brambora, Amazon
29 June 2003
  • Summary: Sort of like RISK on steroids, EU tries to do many things in this zone conquest game. Unfortunately, the user interface is unintuitive and clunky. Given the number of things you need to worry about, this makes the game frustrating. It is not turn based, so as you try to figure out how to send those colonists, the computer is running at full throttle. I have also had many crashes and a patch has already been released to let you load a saved game.
