  • Summary: Wealth of Nations (WoN) is an expansion for Europa Univeralis IV (EU4). The focus of WoN is to provide non-military options to players. The basic problem with EU4 that WoN was designed to address is that there was not much to do except fight wars and build buildings.

Europa Universalis 4 – Review (PC)

Voletic
19 August 2013
  • Conclusion: In summary, Europa Universalis is a worthy addition to the grand strategy genre. While it has certain teething pains, I believe that they can be easily ironed out. Paradox have a storied tradition of farming out dlc within a year of the release of the game.
  • Pros: The title is more accessible than previous iterations in the series, but still retains the level of complexity., The multiplayer is, for the most part, stable – allowing for emergent gameplay., The save transfer from Crusader Kings 2 can easily change the balance of power in Europe.
  • Cons: AI can be a little illogical at times, Larger multiplayer games can be unstable.

Europa Universalis: Rome

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Europa Universalis: Rome likes to give you plenty to think about aside from just what province is next on your shopping list. From strategic trading, the recruiting of legions, where to garrison them, who’s right for the job from governor to general – Rome is possibly one of the only games out there...

Pirates of Black Cove

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: For all its faults though, Pirates of Black Cove is a very endearing game. Its playful nature, its colourful vision of a pirate-infested Caribbean, and it’s knowingly terrible jokes make it an inoffensive and pleasantly innocent experience Don’t bring me that horizon, because I quite like it here.

21 September 2011
  • Excerpt: It seems like gamers tend to love titles that center around pirates and zombies, and I’m no exception. Pirates of Black Cove is obviously all about the former, and I think it lives up to its namesake by running the gamut between a casual game that anyone can play and a complex RPG/Adventure that...

Pirates of Black Cove

Destructoid
4 August 2011
  • Summary: Despite simply being better than ninjas, pirates have not gotten as much appreciation in video games. We've seen two incarnations of Sid Meier's Pirates! , the Monkey Island games, and the Akella pirate games ( Pirates of the Caribbean , Sea Dogs , Age of Pirates ) to name a few, but a full-fledged...

Game Debate
1 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Although not quite a ‘must have’ for fans of Europa Universalis: Rome, the Vae Victus expansion does bring to light some interesting new features, which – to the delight of hardcore Rome Veterans – open up all kinds of new and problematic possibilities to the old format.
