From the Manufacturer

The time is 1400 A.D. The end of the last crusade has left the countries of Europe and the powerful Roman Catholic Church defeated and in a state of great upheaval. As church authorities and noblemen across the continent scramble to defend their interests, you must rise through the ranks of society to build a rich and powerful family dynasty that will last through the ages. Become a crafty merchant, politician, or even a renowned crime lord and outwit shrewd human or AI opponents to achieve the upper echelon of nobility. Every decision you make determines the course of history.

Features:

  • Control the fate of a powerful dynasty in medieval Europe
  • Compete against up to eight human opponents in a unique online mode
  • Build your dynasty utilizing a wide variety of career paths, including merchant, priest, politician, or thief
  • Marry, raise children, and develop lasting relationships that will help your dynasty flourish
  • Explore a beautifully crafted and immersive living world in real-time
  • Overthrow your adversaries using bribery, assassination, and treachery

Product Description

As the successor to the highly rated medieval life simulation Europa 1400, The Guild 2 offers players the opportunity to control the fate of a large dynasty during the Middle Ages. Players can match wits with other human opponents via a truly unparalleled online multiplayer mode that has been completely redesigned for this sequel. In addition, The Guild 2 introduces the franchise’s first story-driven single-player campaign.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy Fix January 13, 2007
By Ettish
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Don't let other reviews fool you. This is a damn good game, good for wasting countless hours. I'm in Iraq so theres not a whole lot to be done during down time, and most games get real old, real fast. The Guild 2 has helped me through it all, and has run a few weeks of this deployment. It is however a little buggy, but most of which got fixed in the most recent patch. The internet is horrible over here, but the patch version 1.2 only took a few minutes to download, and after that I was good to go. Easy. Don't let people saying this game has has a lot of bugs skew your decision. Once you patch it you'll be pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect execution of a fantastic medieval simulation! November 4, 2006
I enjoyed the first in this series, but this one just takes it all to a whole new level. It should be noted that I only played this after 1.2 patch came out that addressed all of the bugs everyone complained about. So I feel there is no point in harping on ancient history - the game is fixed - and it is fabulous.

The possibilities in this game are near endless, you can do virtually anything you want, when you want it. Think Sims + Oblivion + Settlers all rolled into one game, in perfect harmony.

Replayability is huge, with plenty of maps, a lot of professions and classes. Nothing is scripted, everything happens like it would in the real world. The learning curve in this game is fairly large, and many people new to the series will require 2-3 manual reads and the tutorials done at least twice. But you are rewarded with a fantastic game, realistic gameplay, and a world you'll come to love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do whatever you want, if you can figure out how April 7, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me start by saying this game was one of the funnest I've ever played, partly because of the enormous depth, replayability, and variety in the game itself, and also because, as another reviewer stated, it combines aspects from the Sims, eldar scrolls games, and the settlers. This keen observation is very true, as in the course of any given game you will be courting lovers, cementing relationships, insulting people, and having babies (The Sims),you will also be stealing, upgrading weapons, and commanding a character to do wahtever it wants (Eldar Scrolls), all the while, you can manage a business, or multiple ones, a farm, mines, buy a home, get in politics, spy on people, charge someone of a crime, its almost as if you are one of the inhabitents living in The Settlers. It seems like the producers went far to make it an open ended game in which the player can do almost anything they want. In addition to the possibilities in playing, the game has the graphics to back it up. It looks quite real, the faces are not all similar(older people even have wrinkles, but don't fret, your character will get them as well when they age),and you can even see inside your businesses, homes, and public buildings which, surprisingly,add rooms as you upgrade them. The buildings are also impressive, not because there is a whole lot but instead because you can upgrade them constantly. The game is also in real time, so you must manage activities and hire more employees to get things done in time, but the game isn't always so hectic, because you can have the computer automanage a business to your specifications. Personally, the game is excatly what I was looking for, and just about everything I could have wanted. Read more ›

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing this game for about 3 weeks now, and have spent the better two trying to figure out how to play it as the tutorial covers naught but the basics. I enjoy the game immensely as you can go from a lowly serf to a powerful titleholder using whatever method you choose. I also enjoy the variety of talents you can choose for your character, the depth and uniqueness of each profession. You can be a crafstman, a patron, a scholar, and a rogue.

As a craftsman you get to be carpenter, a blacksmith, a tailor, and open your own shops making armor and specially carved items. You can also mines and wood-cutters huts to provide raw materials such as iron, silver, good, pine and oak for your businesses, then sell the surplus. As a patron, you open bakeries and inns, pubs and taverns making meat pies, serving your guests the brews and the freshest artisan breads. You can also open farms to provide raw materials. As a scholar, you have the unique privilege of owning a church, writing religious articles and creating magic or blessed items. You can open up alchemist shops, whizzing up magic potions, create cursed items for your competitors at the sacrificial altar, or you can open magician shops and create enchanted mechanical items. As a rogue, you can rob your competitors carts and steal their goods with a robber camp, or you can set up a thieves guild and kidnap noble family members demanding lofty ransoms for their safe return. Best thing to use a rogue for is finding the dirt on your competitors so you can find evidence of their crimes. You can also hire mercenaries to do this dirty work for you. I haven't explored much of the rogue profession, but it comes with many options.
