About This Game

Carefully guide your nation from the era of absolute monarchies in the early 19th century, through expansion, colonization and social upheaval, to emerge as one of the great world powers by the dawn of the 20th century in Victoria Complete. Gather the wealth and strength required to stay ahead of your enemies, gain invaluable prestige and honor, and reform the nation into a free democracy. Or, drive your people down the grim road of tyranny, corruption, and anarchy...

Although it is inferior to Victoria II in graphics and economics, I still consider Victoria I to be better than Victoria II. It's my all-time favourite realtime-strategy game as I have wasted more than 200 hours on it. But no regrets.
But this game should be handled in utmost care, it may make you an addict! 9/10.

I have to say, this isn't an easy game, it is also quite time consuming (time literally flies when you are playing) but when you start winning it is highly rewarding (kinda the way Demon's Souls and Dark Souls are). It is made in order to make difficult for the player to prevent the history repeating over again (or going worse for the country you are playing with).

While instructions would be nice, the internet is vast and has quite a few explanations and tutorials.

Yeah, it's an old game, graphics are not impressive at all, but really, who cares? it's not the point of this game. Also as your processor doesn't work much, you can play quite a few hours on your laptop before running out of battery, which is nice.

I totally recommend it, it's worth every dollar and you get tons of hours of gameplay due to it's almost infinite replayability.

Only advice: don't get frustrated if you get your ♥♥♥ kicked several times, you'll learn more and more each time.
