Summary: When i buyed this game I dind't expect very much. How wrong I could I have been.When I started to play the game I dind't understand a thing. I have done tutorials but I didn' t understand it. Then I found EU II forums, on paradox site. The forum is amazing. I have learnt so much from them.
Summary: Even though a sequel has appeared since, this is one of the best grand strategy games for the PC. What it lacks in appearance it more than makes up in gameplay. Since there is a very active fan scene behind it, the game has been in effective development for years; after its purchase one only has to...
Summary: This game has kept me entertained for years, its replay value is incredible. Every time I come back there also seems to still be a new tweak and some upgrades. No other game I know off has this continuing level of support, and continues to do. Highly recommended for any strategy gurus.
Summary: One of Paradox's easiest games to get to grips with. This game is easy to play but hard to master. If you only have one strategy game then this must be the one. Victora, HOI, Crusader Kings all use the EU II game engine. They are all great games, but this is probably the best.
Possibly the most in-depth strategy game for the PC

Summary: The problem I have always found when purchasing strategy games is that there are numerous types of game that are labelled 'strategy games' - the command and conquer/age of empires type games and their various clones, the total war type games and so forth.
Summary: I have to admit that on cumulate i've played already 500 hours of this game, even if i own it since only 1 week !! If you loooved Europa #1, then buy this one, it crashes less often (don't need to download the 25 patches) and it's more fun...
Summary: Como jugador de videojuegos habitual, el campo de la estrategia, aunque me gusta, nunca ha sido mi principal adicción. Prefiero los de rol, acción, incluso deportes. Por ello puede sonar extraño que siendo este (para mí) el que lleva la estrategia a un punto más extremo, sea uno de mis videojuegos...
Pros: Veracidad histórica, adicción . . .
Cons: Necesidad de parchear el juego y, a ser posible, añadirle el mod AGCEEP .
Summary: Europa Universalis 2 ist meines Erachtens das beste historische Strategiespiel das es gibt. Man kann mit irgendeiner großen oder kleinen Nation (über 200) anfangen und das Standardszenario durchspielen (beginnt 1419 und endet 1820).
