The sheer randomness and volume of events makes any attempt at getting a handle on things almost pointless! Full Review »

    Compared to the original and the third Europa Universalis, EU Rome can feel small and lacking in the number of factions. The map only coversCompared to the original and the third Europa Universalis, EU Rome can feel small and lacking in the number of factions. The map only covers Europe, the Levant and Mesopotamia, and North Africa and the number of factions is dependent on the era of Roman history which you are playing. And instead of being able to play from AUC, you're earliest starting point is around the Pyrrhic War to the formation of the Empire, not exactly the entire history of the Roman Empire but it's still plenty of time for a hell of a lot of game play. The factions are condensed and only available from this 300 year time period, so depending on your starting time their can be dozens of factions to chose from, or less than 5. You have a lot more control of your country's politics and dynasty, in fact so much control that if you are a large country you will be bombarded with messages and decisions. In the long run the decisions can make a big difference but for the player new to the series be prepared for a rough introduction which is made worse by a lack of a tutorial. I still gave the game a good score because the basics of EU are present: intuitive diplomacy, complex trade and economic systems, diverse military units in Risk-style combat, political intrigue, and historical accuracy (as far as factions and starting positions are concerned). Everything from EU1 is here and improved upon except the afore mentioned small map and lack of diversity of factions, and because of the excellent dynasty system it plays like a faster Crusader Kings. If you are new to the series and haven't gotten the previous game references, I would recommend EU 3 as it is easier to get into and for which there is a lot more assisting material around the intertubes, but if you are a vet of EU3 or other Paradox games and are looking for more goodness to gorge upon than EU Rome is perfect and offers hundreds of hours of Roman enjoyment...
