Victoria II: Heart of Darkness

destructoid.com
2 September 2013
  • Summary: To call Victoria II dense would be a gross understatement. It's a pound cake, with each ingredient -- the tangled politics, vast wars, and simulated economies -- adding greater depth and increasingly complex, interweaving systems. Even for those who consider themselves to be an experienced Europa Universalis player, as I do, it can be a daunting grand strategy title.

Victoria II: A House Divided

destructoid.com
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Victoria II: A House Divided adds 1861 as a new starting point to Victoria II . This puts you right at the beginning of the American Civil War, meaning you can pick the Confederate States of America as your faction. This expansion is about more than just the Civil War, though. It also gives us a new user interface, better revolutions, new ways to initiate wars, and more reasons to play as an uncivilized nation.

  • Excerpt: Today is Victoria Day. No joke. It’s a holiday they celebrate in some countries. I’ve never heard of a Europa Universalis Day or Crusader Kings Day or Hearts of Iron Day. Just a Victoria Day. Fitting. Victoria is one of the most Important strategy games ever made. Victoria II presents history as something that happens because of populations rather than something achieved by individuals or mandated by governments.

Victoria II Heart of Darkness

  • Excerpt: This add on for Victoria II makes the game slightly better than it was. Still a large scary looking amount of information and events to control, but what a ride.

Victoria II

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: Victoria 2 is one of those games where it's easy to expect more from it than it can actually give. Giving its dedication to history, depth, strategy etc... fans can get a bit carried away. Newcomers to the franchise may find it hard to get to grips with at first, but the tutorials do a decent job of easing you in, and as we said, the more you play the more you learn!

Expert Review

The Wargamer
21 February 2012
  • Excerpt: The American Civil War is a unique part of American history that many Americans have strong feelings about. Whether it's personal ties to the conflict, or just an admiration of the wars examples of fighting against the odds for what one believes is right, it's definitely a favorite of many American historians. But although the war was unique by its own right and saw the first of several new ideas and military strategies, the admiration certainly isn't globally universal.
