Another guide by Gaius Julius Ceasar
Well to start it off this game was on my wishlist for a little while, it seemed to be a game that I wanted the total war series to be like. Victoria II however exeeded all of the expectations it had.
The game is much more political than the total war series, the conquest is also different from the total war series, as I am still trying to master sending armies over seas! ( that makes playing as Great Britain impossible, shame but once I learn how to Britain here I come! )
You also can conquer ( sorry my English is not my strongest point ) more territory, with each country having around 14 or more provinces and the whole world being right there for the taking you will find yourself drawn into the game and struggling to get out!
Another thing is you do not find any settlements to take over, you just move a army into the province and wait, this is different from the total war series yet again.
I believe I should also mention that there is no end turn... Every country gets to make their choice of what happens at the same time you do, so if you are expecting a total war end button thing then do not, I was and it took me a while to realize that there is something in the top left corner with a pause button on it, once you click that you can use the + and - signs to change the speed of what happens, and because everything happens together it makes it much harder to plan something, because when you move to attack one army they could move to attack yours!
I hope you buy the game and enjoy it as much as what I did.
