    Positive: Blend of Civ, Pirates and Conquest of the New world<br /> <br /> Negative: Back to the drawing board. Let's

    I think that the game is half ready, unfinished. It takes more than a simple world map and a few pop-up windows to make a strategy game. The native cultures should have cultural-spefific development o...

    An excellent strategy game. Relatively easy to figure out. Sometimes overwhelming late game. Extremely vast game play.

    Basically this game lets you do anything you want as virtually any country known to the European world at the time you decide to play. You can choose to control powerful countries such as Austria and ...

    Addictive Strategy Game

    Rated on March 05, 2007 by kingrich06

    This is a solid game. There are a lot of things to do and learn. You can play the game in so many different aspects that you don’t really finish or win in the game. You can be a aggressive dictator...

    Complex, developed and thoughtful game play has much to offer but tedious micromanagement causes huge let down.

    Europa Universalis III is a huge strategy game that takes place over an immense map that covers the whole world. As you pick your nation out of 300 choices and battle of 1700 provinces and many sea zo...

    It's way more than just a map you see, it's a whole new world at your figure tips!

    I can't believe I haven't tried this game before. It's a well designed work of art. Yes, it looks like a map and it is but it's what's going on that map that matters. You can start with any country, g...

    Great empire building game

    Rated on March 12, 2007 by walrus8303

    I have not played any previous EU games so I will judge EUIII as a standalone and not as a sequal. First of all the gameplay. Allthough the learning curve of the game is quite high when one learns ...

    Hard to get into but worth playing

    More addictive than MMO's

    Rated on February 14, 2008 by stappy

    I recently got Europa Universalis III. I expected it to be addictive, but not like this. Seeing your nation grow, and your allies grow protective, just has this feeling that other Strategy games has l...
