  • Summary: Don't bother. I bought this for 29.99 last week and I lost interest quickly. I should have bought it a year ago on Steam when the price was $1.99!!!! This portrays the Victorian Age in a cartoonish fashion, with warfare as an afterthought. But don't get too encouraged, the economics and political complexities are lacking. The turn-based mechanics of the game give the AI incorrect calculations and they do odd things more often than not.

  • Summary: This strategy game I wouldn't even call a strategy game. The HUD is amateurish and it lacks even a little bit of complexity. There are still a long list of bugs that haven't been addressed, even to this day, and support for the game is lacking. The game is way too familiar and it barely contrasts with previous releases by AGEOD. This game engine has been overused and this game is just Rise of Prussia with a new package cover.

  • Summary: This game could have been a solid Victoria like but is utterly ruined by poor UI design and processing time between turns that can go up to 10 min in the great campaign map

  • Summary: For the gender, it is a great game. The low ratings come from gamers used with intuitive control based games. It is hard to learn , but once you get deep into it you will start loving it. This game is full with realism, and you will feel the slow pace of development, instead of "mine this, build this, attack, win" type of strategy games. If it weren't for the diplomatic crisis system, I would have given it a 10. A beautiful, smart game for the gender.

  • Summary: A very good game (after the patches). Deep economic system easy to learn the basics but still not easy to master. The only weak point for me that remains after the last patches is the Diplomatic system with its few choices

  • Summary: I love this game and I don`t see why it`s not getting good reviews. I can`t believe AGEOD went with paradox. This game is a beautiful woman , and it`s everything victoria 2 should have been.

  • Summary: I sincerely wish I hadn't bought this, thanks to the no refunds policy for steam. Terrible clashing, clunky, stuttery graphics. There might be some lovely gameplay there but I haven't found it..

  • Summary: It is a poor attempt at a strategy game. Compared with all the other similar games in Paradox's lineup this is one of the ones that simply fails to deliver. With graphics and UI that looks like an amateur's job in Photoshop. Coupled with the fact that this game is complex. You'll find yourself overwhelmed by the lack of user-friendly and intuitive UI. Getting lost in the UI is a very common thing. The game mechanics itself is limited in options.

  • Summary: This is the latest game in a long line of superb turn based war games made by Ageod (Paradox France). Pride of nations is set in the Victorian / Industrial Age between 1850 and 1920. The game focuses on leading one of eight nations to glory through warfare, colonization, diplomacy and trading. If you are already a fan of some of the other Ageod games, you will feel right at home, but the UI will take some time to learn.
