    Unify Japan as a powerful Daimyo, Balance the factions of China and defeat the remains of the Mongolian empire on the Russian Steppe.

    This expansion pack fixes many of the problems that Heir to the Throne had, Personal unions, Poland, Historical accuracy, etc. My gripe is with the introduction of cascading alliances.. war's between 2 Italian city states become wars Between Russia,

    My gripe is with the introduction of cascading alliances.. war's between 2 Italian city states become wars Between Russia, Austria, France and Spain -_-
    Of course it also adds alot of fun and excitement while also encouraging some intelligence when declaring war.

    This expansion definitely adds a lot of new and enjoyable content to the series and if you happened to enjoy any of the other EU games you will enjoy this. That said EU fits into a very fine niche of history enthusiasts. If you do not enjoy reading history books then you will find this game lacking but if your the kind of person who reads Gibbon from cover to cover then you will find thisThis expansion definitely adds a lot of new and enjoyable content to the series and if you happened to enjoy any of the other EU games you will enjoy this. That said EU fits into a very fine niche of history enthusiasts. If you do not enjoy reading history books then you will find this game lacking but if your the kind of person who reads Gibbon from cover to cover then you will find this game scratches an itch that very few other games scratch. Mechanically it is not very impressive, you build your buildings, move your armies, and watch them fight with other armies. The real joy is in creating a realm of historical fiction, or, more difficult, re-create history. What would have happened if the French conquered Lombardy? Where would history be if the Bohemians dominated the Holy Roman Empire? What if Russia had expanded West instead of East? If you are the kind of person who has asked these questions then you are the kind of person who will enjoy EU Divine Wind regardless of its many mechanical nuances. Expand

    This is a good expansion to the EU3 franchise but nothing spectacular... It is worth the few dollars to get this add on pack but don't set your expectations too high. I personally would like to see a trade aspect added to the EU3 series or perhaps in a newer version.

    Another circuit in the series' evolution. Thankfully, on the right trajectory. [Feb 2011, p.117]

    Surely, strategists will appreciate this brand new and polished expansion!

    A handful of changes don't go far enough to differentiate East from West. [April 2011, p.77]
