    When buying a paradox interactive game, there is one point to always consider: don't rate it untill there have been at least 2 patches to fix the numerous bugs and inbalances of the game.
    Regarding the product, there are some new events and mechanics that manage to portray the life of medieval merchant to some kind, however the lack of a real trade-system with actual trade-goods and the
    unbelivable inbalanced republics even after 2 patches, combined with the still horrible multiplayer and no naval-battles at all make this expansion only something for hardcore fans. Expand

    CK2 is gaining a devoted following for its atmosphere and depth of gameplay. This expansion adds to both, so is a welcome addition. If you like CK2, you'll be well-served spending the 10 bucks this expansion costs.

    The Republic adds some good content to Crusader Kings II, focusing on trading and internal plots. It's definitely worth its price.

    The Republic takes Crusader Kings II into a new dimension, where money is the most important “value”. This expansion is a necessary step for the gameplay evolution and a good opportunity to play the game one more time.
