    As someone who has been addicted to EU & EU2 since the first one came out years ag, I am disappointed in Crowns. It is a step back from EU2's vivid glimpse into a realm of scheaming aristocracy. What I enjoy most about Crowns are the EU2 new scenarios, but they are so flooded with bugs that I have played the first 15 min of Alternate Grand Campaigne 50 times and am unable to retrive As someone who has been addicted to EU & EU2 since the first one came out years ag, I am disappointed in Crowns.

If we get some patches, it will still be worth the money. Expand

    A port of a three-year old Swedish game called "Svea Rike III," a lighter precursor to the original "Europa Univsersalis" with weaker AI, sparse strategic options, and an unfriendly hotkey-heavy interface. [Dec 2003, p.95]
  2. The one factor that I love about this type of game is that you can either let the time lapse as normal (although I don’t think this is best) or you can speed it up a little so the unexpected can creep up and surprise you.

    The gameplay is extremely fast paced, and while difficult to master at times, it does make for an extremely captivating experience.
