Victoria II: A House Divided Review (PC)

Softpedia
27 August 2011
  • Excerpt: “The South shall rise again” is the rallying cry south of the Mason –Dixon line, the divider between the Northern and Southern states, and gamers who love their historical conflicts and their alternate realities can look to the new 1861 scenario, which allows for full control of the CSA and its independence struggle. The Confederates start in a pretty bad position, with the North enjoying superiority in numbers and industrial capacity.
  • Pros: + Deep historical strategy, + New economic mechanics, + More opportunities for war, + Improved interface
  • Cons: - Difficult CSA start, - Some obscure mechanics, - Information heavy

  • Excerpt: While some strategy games place you in command of a general/hero in relatively fast-paced action, Victoria 2 helps you create the bigger picture, by giving you the opportunity to create or change a country’s history during the Victorian time period.

Victoria II (PC) - Review

VGChartz

  • Excerpt: Victoria II , the new and ambitious strategy simulation for PCs, places you at the helm of a nation for a whole century, starting in the year 1836 (right about the time when the dust had finally settled from the chaos of the Napoleonic Era). You must then steer this country through the rambunctious waters of 18th century diplomacy and economics.

Victoria II – PC Game Review

Armchair General
3 September 2010
  • Pros: : Three layers of well-designed tutorials guide you through how to use the interfaces. The interface on the map screen enhances game play. Domestic political part of the game is interesting.
  • Cons: : Steep learning curve (there’s a reason for three levels of tutorials). Some misspellings and grammar mistakes in a few of the tutorial screens. The world is a cylinder with travel cut off near the poles.

Обзор Victoria II

  • Excerpt: В отличие от основной ударной силы Paradox Interactive в лице серий Europa Universalis и Hearts of Iron, скромная Victoria всегда держалась в стороне, нареченная «нишевым» проектом, хотя по качеству она едва ли не превосходила именитых родственников. Да и не удивительно, ведь явно, что Викторианская эпоха у «гомо геймерус» пользуется меньшим интересом, чем эпоха Великих географических открытий или Вторая мировая война.

Victoria II - Review

Gamezapp
28 June 2011
  • Summary: All diejenigen, die Spiele wie StarCraft 2 oder Supreme Commander zu futuristisch, zu kurzweilig und zu simpel finden, wurden hiermit erhört. Victoria 2 ist ein Meisterwerk unter den Taktikspielen, richtet sich allerdings ganz klar ausschließlich an erfahrene Strategen. Die immense Spieltiefe macht die dröge Präsentation locker wieder wett.
  • Pros: komplexer Inhalt, gute Benutzerführung, immens umfangreich
  • Cons: nur für Hardcore-Strategen, teils Bug-lastig
