The game does have a learning curve, but nothing that cannot be cured by playing the game, and referring to the manual or the online forums if you do not understand how something works. A couple of points that I found that helped me is to watch your inflation (though it cannot be helped raising it in the beginning), and have the advisor window open when time passes so that you can pause it and snatch the advisor you want whenever he comes along. Unless I missed it in the game, one pop-up option they could have included is notification of when a certain kind of advisor or certain class of advisor is available for hire, so that you did not have to babysit that window. That is a minor gripe really, and a matter of preference.
Refer to the other reviews on this site for the game mechanics and details, as I feel mentioning them will just be redundant. Bottom line, if you are a strategy gamer, and enjoy involving strategy and planning things out, and a strategy game where war is not the end-all of the game, this is a game for you, and you will get tons of replay value for your dollar.
Also, the developers frequently update the game, even years after their release. This release combines the major updates and expansions since its release, which has turned the game into a masterpiece. However, be sure to frequently check the forums. Another update for the game, Divine Wind, will come out this month which updates the graphics and adds more detail for the Asian countries.

Had to work at figuring out how to play. Once I got going it was interesting. I have since purchased EU 4 which has better graphics but I have not played it as much.Published 19 months ago by Ryan Palmer
