This game was designed for SINGLE-CORE processors only. So, unless you have an old Pentium4 still up and running it's almost impossible to play this game for it will utilize only 1 core of your dual/quad/octacore processor. Theirfore it will take up to 5 minutes to process a turn. And remember...there are 1500 turns in this game. That's a lot of waiting!!!

Great design and idea, but terrible programming.

The game runs very slowly and crashes often. Very frustrating and dissapointing as from what I saw of it there was great depth.

Fantastic game, must do say I enjoy playing it however I do not have many hours on it but it was super fun reminded me of my childhood years playing the Blue & The Gray version of this. Very entertaining.

If you like paradox games you know what to expect. Its a fun game when it works if you like nation building and micromanaging. Unfortunately its completely broken for me so I'm now unable to play it at all.

Probably the most complex and rewarding grand strategy game I've come across. Brilliant detail in every level. Fully customizable. Not for the faint-hearted or the impatient!

This game will have a very subtle, but important impact on how strategy games look in the foreseeable future. It's daunting for a newcomer, but if you want to take the plunge with a game that has unprecedented depth - you should try it out.

Time between turns can get up to as long as two minutes. If that won't be a problem for you, then this is the best nation-building game ever made.

For most people, it was a problem.

There's only 2 things harder than actually getting this game running: Figuring out how to play it, and figuring out why you would play an incredibly dull version of Victoria 2.
