Renaissance Man

Game Debate
16 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Plotting a safe course through the heady, Machiavellian world of early modern-era policital intrigue is a bit like surviving high school. Do you work really hard and suck up to everyone in an attempt to get them to like you (and become Holy Roman Emperor)? Or do you already have a really tough big brother who is five years older than you, who you can use to strike terror into everyone, allowing you to act like a spoilt brat (Papal States)?

  • Cons: Needs to be your thing, Lots to learn

Europa Universalis IV

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: I've just united Italy after over a century of bloody conflicts. From Doge of The Serene Republic of Venice to the first King of Italy -- it's quite the step up. Along the way, I've upset the gargantuan Holy Roman Empire, gone to war with the Papal State, conquered Serbia, and inadvertently helped France take over most of Spain. Now I've got the vast Ottoman Empire knocking at my door, and I'm about to lose everything.

Europa Universalis IV

Strategy Informer
23 August 2013
  • Conclusion: So, Paradox have done it again – learning from the design of Crusader Kings II, Europa Universalis is an excellent starting foundation. From here, we hope the game receives the content and support that CKII got, and we can’t wait to see what else they can do with the game. EU3 fans are obviously going to feel right at home here, and whilst we’d encourage newcomers to try it out, since there’s no ‘face’ to game (As it’s about nations, not people), it might not seem as...

Softpedia
1 May 2010
  • Summary: I have played the Europa Universalis series since the second title was launched and I my imagination was quickly captured by the idea of taking full control of one nation in order to try and make it a bigger and more powerful empire than the real-world United Kingdom during the period.

Europa Universalis

The Gamers Temple
22 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Ever play the old board game Risk? Well Risk is all grown up now and has spent quite a lot of time at the gym. Europa Universalis is Paradox Entertainment's magnum opus simulation of world politics from 1492 to 1792. Europa' world is divided among ninety nations and over 800 provinces and you must take the reigns of one of those nations. Then what awaits you is one of the most detailed and finely crafted grand strategic games to come out in years.

Rule the Known World with Europa Universalis

GIN
30 May 2001
  • Excerpt: Everybody wants to rule the world. With Europa Universalis, you can do that. Starting as one of the major, or not so major powers, in the year 1492 (or other various starting points of the many scenarios that come with the game) you vie with either computer or live opponents (via the Internet options) all trying for the same thing - World Domination.
