Third best game I've ever played in my life. Tied with Destiny, and only beaten by Civ V and Civ VI (Out now! :D). I know what you're going to say... "This is better than Civ for blah blah details plot." But I just like Civ better, dunno why. Just do. Anyways, this game is great.
+ Fun and inticing Gameplay
+ Keeps you coming back, because you always feel like you can do better, or something different.
+ Good historic accountabilty... To a point.
+ Music that fits the situation, and makes you have amazing feelings. (Or you can just listen to Grooveshark, Whichever Floats your Goat.)
- Graphics could be better
- Steep learning curve. Watch TheSolarGamer's Denmark playthrough. You learn alot when you yell at the screen.
- Europe actually was poor and had not-good tech in 1444, and up untill the discovery of the America's it was more or less a 3rd world Back-water place, but I guess this is good enough.
+Scandinavia and Hungary colonize South America, and Hungary fights a war with the French, Tuscans, and Dutch across the world alone? Yes please. (I took over Australia as Hungary. No way does this game get better than seeing Hungary be Westernized and in control of most of the world, and the Ottomans under control of Egypt.)
+ Funny happenings of all kinds!
