What Gamespot Users have to say about Europa Universalis II

  • User Rating 6.6

    Rated on March 17, 2007 by Arcana

    My reviewer's tilt score is 10 because I really love the world-wide grand-strategic scope of EU2, but it is an abstract (platonic) kind of love because I have never had the patience to play more than ...

    Great historical Strategy Game.

    Rated on April 27, 2012 by Jason210

    Edited in April, 2012 EU2 is one of the few computer games ever to be released which I can call "timeless", not least because it still looks good and is still playable in 2012, on a Windows 7 64 bi...

    By far the deepest and extremely addictive strategy game for hardcore fans. Better sequel to Civ2 then even Civ4.

    One of the best strategy game ever!

    Rated on January 24, 2007 by King_G_III

    This is really one of the best strategy game ever! Few games has such a deep, and still such a good balance between strategy and action. If this game doesn’t make you historical interested, nothing ...

    Heavier learning curve, but much better overall than any other Paradox game including EU3.

    Rated on January 22, 2008 by Talus057

    //Gameplay// I've been playing strategy games for as long as I have been playing RPGs, which is to say 15+ years (I am in my 20s). I've always had a good mind for playing these types of nation-buildi...

    Europa Universalis was a superb game and the sequel gives us all the greatness of the first part and much more.

    If something isn’t broken, don’t break it, or something like that – that must have been the idea of the sequel and Paradox did great. Europa Universalis was a superb game and the sequel gives us all t...

    An intially complex and fun RTS set on a global scale

    Rated on April 12, 2007 by master_blue

    EU2 is a grand real time strategy game, you can take control of pretty much any state or nation although some of the world is blanked out (terra incognito) and cannot be revealed, other areas are blan...
