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.
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.
Conclusion: Europa Universalis: Rome likes to give you plenty to think about aside from just what province is next on your shopping list.

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...
Excerpt: Here’s something you might not know about me: I love Sid Meier’s Pirates , and every time I sit down to play it, I drink rum. Without fail. If it’s an evening set aside for playing Pirates, then rum is not optional.
Pros: Simplistic, Great voice acting, Evocative maps / levels
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...
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.
