5.0 out of 5 stars A truely great political and gains simulation!, 13 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Europa 1400 Gold (PC) (Video Game)
I was a little unsure of this game to begin with, it seemed like a more boring and medieval version of "The Sims". You chose a profession and try to create a lasting dynasty to span the ages, either in the first incarnation or through the bodies of your children...
I was bored and so bought it with every intention of returning it if it proved thus. I found to my surprise, it's highly addictive... When I was not trying to further my political aspirations by bribes, thuggery and affairs, I ran the day to day needs of my shop to provide me with said status and much monies in which to bribe, buy arsonists or thugs, expand my place of work and buy pretty things! If you're anything like me, one shop isn't enough, and I created a monopoly and bought all of the shops that despence those particular items. However, as a businessness woman I dislike putting all my eggs into one basket and diverfied (The church, smithy, stonemaston, quackery (as a doctor or pefumer), banker etc) until I owned most of the town, lived in a castle and was Sovereign. Being educated I also improved my skills until they were unmatchable, and had enough time to produce and teach my three children those same skills to my satisfaction by aquiring several wealthy spouses. All that was just in my first body!!!
Have fun I did!
