  • Summary: Guide your nation further throught history. Victoria: Revolutions lets you play your nation from 1836 until 1936 and continue your gaming experience in "Hearts of Iron 2: Doomsday." Victoria focus on six different aspects, all interconnected, to provide a deep, yet easily accessible game-play; Diplomacy, Warfare, Economy & Industrialisation, Colonisation, Technological Development and Political Simulation.

  1. As for regular gamers, if you’ve ever felt any desire to play a more complex and realistic version of Civilization, to wonder if you could unite Germany as Prussia, or beat the Yankees as the Confederates, Victoria is definitely worth trying now. It’s cheaper and the patches plus this expansion have made it a great value. Just be warned, there is a lot to learn in a short time.
  2. While it doesn't change or enhance enough of the core game to attract players turned off by the original's extreme attention to detail, convoluted interface, and design flaws, it contains so many subtle tweaks and improvements that it is a must-buy for fans. The only drawback is that this $10 expansion probably should have been offered as a free patch.
  3. This is more a sop to the converted than an effort to appeal to those who have given up. [Dec. 2006, p.78]

    A must have for players of Victoria; Revolutions takes much of the confusion and the steep learning curve away from the original game.

    With Revolutions, Victoria reached its full potential. Some modifications, plus improved and streamlined gameplay, make Victoria one of the best (if not the best) "Grand Strategy" games out there. Expand

    What the original Victoria should had been in the first place. The inclusion of 16 additional years of gameplay, as well as of new ideologies such as fascism greatly expand playing possibilities. Expand
