What Gamespot Users have to say about Crusader Kings II

  • User Rating 8.5

    Crusader Kings 2 is not accessible or simple to everyone, but it is amazing on everyone's standards after the tutorial.

    Paradox's is known for ridiculously complex grand strategy games, with depth and accuracy unrivaled by any other game in existence. Needless to say, this has its disadvantages, and Paradox Grand strat...

    ...so I beheld the king of all strategy games and trembled, for he was bright as the blazing sun! Glory to thee Paradox!

    I know I overstate the "king of all strategy games" part, but at this point it is a true description of what I feel about this game. This is Paradox's shining moment - Crusader Kings 2 surely is the m...

    A great sequel that could have been better if it was less random.

    Crusader Kings 2 is a sequel to the first game of the same name. It's a grand strategy game where you play a count, duke or king in control of a province, or a number of provinces, instead of the enti...

    It's an incredibly dynamic game

    Rated on February 18, 2012 by AussieePet

    By far the easiest Paradox Grand Strategy game to get into, simply because it is more like an RPG than GS. The graphics are great, the new combat system is brilliant, and the game is wonderfully in de...

    Paradox Another one?

    Rated on February 23, 2012 by edqmaster

    Another classic by Paradox with a working product on release; a complex game of people in power, seeking more power

    Rated on February 23, 2012 by adrianomar

    I've been a huge Paradox fan for years because they consistently create games that I love and play for a very long time; despite some known buggy, and even unplayable releases. Crusader kings II is...

    Game is ok but beware, there is big problem with revolting vassals

    Rated on February 24, 2012 by Yzzycz

    One Duchy after other, one county after other, for no reason. Even when you not holding too many counties or duchies (this thinks you have to allways watch, otherwise you will not stay alive for 20 mi...

    Diplomacy is King!

    Rated on March 04, 2012 by tetnak

    Crusader Kings 2 is somewhat of a strange game. War isn't particularly interesting, and it is likely that if you have more soldiers you will win a battle. However, the great part of this game is the...

    Probably the best paradox game yet. Must play for paradox fans and people interested in the historical period

    Rated on March 06, 2012 by Shane747

    Paradox games are well known for their complexity and depth. Crusader Kings 2 is similar to previous paradox games, but does just enough to perhaps attract some new fans. Fans of paradox don't need an...
