2.0 out of 5 stars Great price but missing critical part, July 20, 2012
By 
This review is from: Pint Sized Paradox Package [Download] (Software Download)
This package is on sale during a Paradox sale on Jul 20 2012

As I was about to pull the trigger on this package at a great price (87% off), I noticed that the "Crusader Kings II" part of it included some DLC but not the BASE GAME. Due to this glaring omission, it's only useful for people that already own "Crusader Kings II".

Will update the review after I chat with Amazon CS to find out if it was intentional (designed for owners of Crusader Kings II) or an oversight.

--------------------

Same day edit: Amazon on-line chat doesn't support Amazon's software downloads so I called (at chat's direction) Amazon's CS number.

They informed me (after they transferred me to digital download support) that the packages are supplied by the publisher (Paradox, in this case) so they have no control over the contents. I didn't contact Paradox to ask about the missing Crusader Kings II main game.

I ended up buying the "Plethora of Paradox Games" (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008G0ZVLE) for a higher cost (but still greatly discounted; 86% off) even though it had some games I already owned or didn't want. I included the full URL because, oddly, neither an Amazon search for "plethora paradox games" nor a for the ASIN "B008G0ZVLE" will bring up the bundle.

Just beware/be aware that this "Pint Sized Paradox Package" doesn't seem to include the base game "Crusader Kings II" even though it includes several DLCs for it.

This is meant to go with the Plentiful Paradox Package that is offered for $12.49 that includes Crusader King's 2 as well as several other games. This was added to compliment that package which has been offered before.

This isn't meant to have CK2, this is meant to supplement it from an older deal that had ck2 in it but did not have the DLC in it. It was completely intentional.

It is odd. I didn't understand the first time I looked at it.
as far as I can tell. This bundle was trying to push you to buy the Plentiful Paradox Package aswell thats why the missing game is in one pack and all the dlc is in this one.

If you just want Majesty and Warlock, then, what you want is: Paradox Majesty Franchise [Download]
