Crusader Kings II Review

 

For a Paradox title, Crusader Kings II is actually relatively easy to pick up. That said, this isn't for the faint of heart.

One of the surprising things about Crusader Kings II is that, for a Paradox title, it's actually relatively easy to pick up. That said, this isn't for the faint of heart (or short on time), but if you're willing to bust your butt a little in the...

Days of Our Lives. With heretics.

Beautiful map, intricate character relationship model, infinite replay value, littered with strategic options

Arranging marriages a bit too easy; too many repeat events, weak tutorial

Dynastic politics never felt so intense.

Always challenging, encourages storytelling, strategic interpersonal relationships

Needlessly complex, clumsy interface, underwhelming campaign ending

I myself come from a long line of Spies, dating back to the the Spy Dynasty of the 8th century. Of course you can't find us in the history books -- we're spies, no one even knew we were there!

A complex and deeply rewarding system of international diplomacy ; Building personal relationships is an engrossing endeavor ; Open-ended structure lets you pursue your own goals ; Well-designed and easily navigable menus

Maneuvering large armies can get awkward ; Lackluster tutorials

While you can sit tight and play the role of a pacifist, the best way to build your dynasty is to overtake other territories and expand the boundaries of your empire. This task generally requires a careful combination of diplomacy, intrigue, and...

It's hard to find something new when it comes to strategy games. Part of the reason so many of them are formulaic is because those formulas work. An examination of sales for games such as Total War: Shogun II reveals that no matter what strategy gamers...

The bottom line is that Paradox Interactive knows its audience, and the developer hand-crafted Crusader Kings II to fit the needs of its dedicated fan base. This is not an accessible game, and it does not pretend to be. If you want an update to the...

Military-minded modders may well address issues like these as well as other minor flaws, like the willingness and ability of Saracen Jihadists to strike at the western extremities of Christendom. Even if they don't, I can see myself enjoying the...

Crusader Kings II has heaps of stories to tell in this unique mix of character-building and strategy. Despite a steep learning curve, it's utterly compelling.
