Very likely the weakest of Paradox's excellent line of Grand Strategy games.

User Rating: 5.5 | Victoria: An Empire Under the Sun PC
I'm a big fan of Paradox's main line of Grand Strategy games. I've played Europa Universalis, Europa Universalis 2, Crusader Kings, Victoria, Hearts of Iron, Heart of Iron 2, and Hearts of Iron 2: Doomsday, each for a very long time. The replayability of their games is amazing, and I have gotten many years of good solid gaming out of a number of their games. Victoria is the lone exception to this rule. The micromanagement of your industry through the industrial age is not what I consider to be very fun, and the lack of some key events such as the Treaty of Guadaloupe Hidalgo is frustrating in the extreme. Perhaps this game plays better when taken from a European perspective, but the gameplay in North America in the overall campaign really turned me off.
