The basis of the game is to manage a country of your choice, from anywhere in the world, from 1399 to 1821. You can choose from an absolutely massive stack of around 250 countries - anyone from England, France and Spain, to Ming- China, the Ottoman Empire and the Aztecs. The player has complete control over their state, no matter big or small. They manage construction, diplomacy, the discovery and colonisation of the Americas, religion, trading, miliary and perhaps a million other things. I really appreciate the game's ability to allow you to focus your country in whatever way you want. If you want to make Denmark a naval superpower with a huge navy, you can focus your entire country into it; or if you want to take the Ottomans on a rampage, converting Europe piece by piece to Islam, then you can.
The way the game is both historic and ahistoric is also one of the greatest balances I have ever seen. When you are selecting a country to play, you can choose from any single day over the 422 years of gameplay, and the map will show the exact (as far as we know) layout of each and every country on the map at that time. One day a country will exist, and the second you press the forward day button, it is gone. History down to a pinpoint.Read more ›
But be warned! This game can become very addictive and time-consuming. But it is most certainly worthwhile if you're a fan of historical-strategy games.
A bonus is the Paradox community. Once you've bought the game go check out the excellent fan-made mods that are available on the Paradox forums.
