Crusader Kings II reviews


Damn good game, once you get through the arduous process of understanding everything in the UI. You can just as easily min-max and conquer the entirety of Europe as you can roleplay your individual characters and set in-character goals for each of your reigns. The amount of necessary DLC holds this game back from being exceptional, however. If you were an 'early adopter' of the game and bought the DLC at the pace in which it was released, it might not seem like a lot, but to a new player? That's a couple hundred dollars to fully experience the wonder of Crusader Kings 2.

UPDATE: I don't know much about the subscription thing they're doing, but from my understanding, it alleviates the price problem? In any case, I'm bumping it up to a 9.

The Goal must always be set in this Game, as they are not specified. There are always Vassals who are subordinate to you and who have to provide you with Troops and Money. This should be kept mostly happy but also weak. The Problem with this Game is that you can't recommend it easily. Since it is presented In a damn complex and also very sober, I can only advise everyone to watch a Let's Play beforehand, whether the Game is lying to you or not. Watch At at least 10 Hours of tutorial videos, you can't stop by if you want to play sensibly. I at least give a Thumbs up but hope for a future more modern Crusader Kings III Without such DLC Escapades. If you are interested in further Reviews of me, follow my Group.
The flaws of this game are still better than my whole gaming experience. Immersive, fun and silly, usually in a good way
