When I first tried Europa Universalis 3, I got bored of the game within an hour. I was considering to get a refund for it, but decided to give it another go. And am I glad I did. This game for me feels like the grand strategy of the Total War seires on steriods. It requires patience, as just going on a massive warmongering spree will just end in half the nations on your continent starting a war with you and you nation being excommunicated. I still have know idea what I'm doing at times as at time of writing, I'm still waiting for Henry V to take the throne (King Henry IV just won't die!).

To cut to the chase, if you don't mind the complete lack of action and are a big fan of strategy, this is a title you should keep an eye on.
