The ultimate strategic simulator of an early modern history state with wide options for both success and failure. Do you want to unite Britain under Scotland, thwart the Spanish Reconquista or maintain the Inca empire? Suit yourself. [Issue#234]
EU4 is an incredible strategy game from Paradox interactive. The most accurate description is probably "a sandbox of alternative history taking place in the Modern Age" (from the fall of Constantinople to the end of the Napoleonic Wars). You can choose any existing country from around the world and lead them in your preferred direction. Establish powerful alliances, conquer new territories, colonize unknown areas, trade with precious commodities, become a pirate state, play politics in HRE and many others. For me personally, this is an essential game that has had a strong impact on me, one of the best I've played in my life. That's why I rate it 10/10.
Best Paradox game to date. Multiplayer hotjoin added makes it the easiest grand strategy game to play with a friend.
Full of depth and history it will make CIV5 seem like child's play.
With over 250 nations to play you will never be bored.
Making it impossible for colonists and their war of independence, or hoop rolling in the Schönbrunn Garden? The new Europa Universalis has the answer for everything. It has shown a new dimension of strategic gameplay.
Europa Universalis IV is a well-constructed simulation of what it's like to bring through the colonial era. For history buffs and strategy grognards, EU4 delivers an excellent update to a storied franchise, but it may be hard for new players to penetrate its esoteric systems.
Europa Universalis IV is the game you graduate to when you’re tired of Civilization. That’s ultimately also why all those numbers are there, beneath the surface: because you never graduate away from Europa Universalis IV. It drops you in the deep end before you’re ready, but if you can swim back towards the shallows during those first five hours, you’ll unlock a game so rich, it’ll be helping you tell stories for years.
Europa Univeralis IV is an awesome game for people who enjoy playing history/strategy games. While I don't really play strategy games this game still managed to have me invested for couple hours. It has a huge variety of playing styles which can easily entertain you for many hours.
The game itself is actually quite good, I just can't recommend this game because the poor excuses of devs have locked a cr*p load of essential features behind several paywalls which makes around half the factions and thus game unplayable. if your willing to invest triple the amound of the base game on dlc's go ahead. Otherwise don't bother.
Probably the worst of the main Paradox games. This is basically a map painter. As a game it does have some tactical considerations and is more complex than risk, but not nearly as much as a game like HOI4. As a simulator it is total nonsense.
SummaryEuropa Universalis IV explores the world history in an experience crafted by Paradox Development Studio, the masters of Grand Strategy. The experiences of true exploration, trade, warfare and diplomacy will be brought to life in this epic title rife with rich strategic and tactical depth.
