Experience one of the most defining periods in world history in an experience crafted by the masters of Grand Strategy. The greatest cultural and military civilizations are brought to life through this epic title rife with great strategic and tactical depth. Set during the golden age of the Roman Republic when the Senate ruled the Empire, Vae Victis features a massive number of additions and improvements to Europa Universalis: Rome, a game that was already one of the most prominent to depict that era in the widest scope. An overview of these key changes begins with government, which has received a lot of attention for the expansion in order to produce more fluid and balanced gameplay. The cast of historical characters of the ancient world have also had a significant overhaul across a variety of areas and with the addition of missions, decisions and laws, Vae Victis is an expansion packed with a huge amount of new content.

Europa Universalis: Rome - Gold Edition reviews and comments

[3/5] Research and Economics stand out less than for "Europa Universalis." For this, more Emphasis is placed on Trade and similar to the Crusader Parts there is a dynasty systhem. Historically, the Game is pretty correct. All in all, can bring a few Hours of Fun.

The concept is really nice with the Senate system and event related to the latter,... plots etc... But... the game is clearly zero, between the bad diplomacy (even if there again we find a nice idea of choice of the emus etc...), the wars are completely risky... fights anything.. yet I am a veteran of Europe Universalis, Crusader Kings,... but here... anything, you can have a very large army, well trained etc. and lose face with a much inferior army of Carthaginians... and see the latter you mess a on sea like on Earth and this.. even by using the cheat to balance the game... the hordes of barbarians who are at times too cheated (Finally it puts a little realism must say.. even if one would prefer to be warned by a system of rumour...) In short I understand why several times I tried to recover but I stopped shortly after... His fights ruin the game...

If you are Interested in Antiquity and Strategy, you are in good hands with the EU: Rome. However, I would rather call it a Hardcore Strategy game, it's far from easy and the Induction Time Really takes an extremely long time as the game absolutely doesn't take you to the Hand. So in the Beginning you sit in front of a Bunch of Menus, undermenus, under-undermenus, the Europa Map with Units and by the way, the Senate also wants something of one. In short-The Head agonates after a few Minutes. However, once you have opened the Pandorra's box, a really good Strategy game Spreads in front of you with an extremely good depth in which you can spend Hours. Planning Campaigns Alone takes a very long time and must be well prepared, the Denitation of Games like Total War, and how to proceed there to the Process in Rome I think the longest I think. You don't just attack briefly, everything has to be strictly planned and thought through, the Fleet Size, Number of the Army etc, otherwise an Attack will catch up faster than it has Even started. So You should really use the Years and not act hastily. Fights are presented as Statistics with small beautifully drawn Artworks. I guess those who know other Paradox Games should quickly feel Local, otherwise you really need an Extremely thick coat and should you rather watch some Videos about the Game beforehand, otherwise you could think of your Money being thrown out very quickly. Once this Phase has been overcome, however, you will get an ingenious Game.
