Europa Universalis IV for Linux Review

Softpedia
6 October 2013
  • Conclusion: There are very few games that require this kind of dedication for development and play. It's hard to recommend a game that I failed to understand at every level, but at the same time I feel compelled to say that it would be foolish of me not to recognize the quality of Europa Universalis.
  • Pros: + Realistic politics and gameplay, + Unexpected turn of events, + Detailed tutorials
  • Cons: - Punishing difficulty, - Requires too much time to learn and master

Paradox still the grand master of grand strategy with Europa Universalis IV (review)

VentureBeat
13 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Europa Universalis IV is still going to be confusing and daunting to the newcomer, but Paradox has at least attempted to give you some help with the streamlined way of handling administrative, diplomatic, and military growth; your advisers; and trade.
  • Pros: Points in its favor As time passes in Europa Universalis IV, you gain points — monarch power — that you can use to advance your administrative, diplomatic, and military goals. This may sound like something standard for a strategy game, something that you’d take for granted would be there, but pla...

Take the new trade nodes. While the tutorial does explain what t...

  • Conclusion: Gamers som har uppskattat Paradox tidigare strategispel men alltid varit intresserade av imperier och kolonisering av den nya världen, kommer att uppskatta Europa Universalis IV. Möjligheterna att som Sverige kolonisera Amerika före spanjorerna kommer att vara en kittlande tanke.
  • Pros: • Möjligheten att skapa ett imperium • Valbara länder • Enklare gränssnitt • Passande musikspår
  • Cons: • Väldigt svårt • Handel kunde ha förklarats bättre • För få låtar • Tutorial går igenom grunderna enbart
