  1. Best Grandstrategygame
    by Gijs V., Netherlands - Jan 12th 2019

  2. So rewarding...when you learn how to actually play
    by Dubbs09, USA - Nov 29th 2018

    Be prepared, this game has been out for years and years and has a ton of DLC. But the game and DLC is always on sale somewhere and can be very steep discount. But be prepared to read up on how to play, maybe watch some videos, and not be completely comfortable with how to play for quite some time. It's one of the best strategy games of all time....but the learning curve is one of the steepest as well.

    by Hallanvaara, Finland - Nov 10th 2018

    My friend said it best "I have now about 1000h combined in EU/crusader king series and now I think I know how to play the game"

  5. One of the best strategy games
    by Re_, Lithuania - Sep 21st 2018

    This is one of the best strategy games out there. If you're strategy fan this is a must buy. Downside is this game has too many DLC's, there's simply too many of them.

  8. Awesome game
    by Gabriel H.2, Sweden - Apr 17th 2018

    EU4 is an awesome grand strategy game but I would probably say that some DLCs are "obligatory" to me like Common Sense and Art of War.

  9. The king of 4X
    by CJshark, USA - Mar 22nd 2018

    Paradox Interactive's flagship game, and in my opinion, the best 4X game they've made.

  10. A great game for strategy fans looking for a very deep experience
    by Air H., Latvia - Nov 19th 2017

    At the moment of writing this review, I have put 85 hours into EU4 and I have enjoyed every single minute of it. While it can take a good time to wrap your head around (even now I am still not sure I am using the games very deep systems to their full potential), the amount of options you are presented will make any strategy fan excited.
    There is a huge amount of DLCs for this game, though most of them are cosmetic- out of the main expansions, the ones I'd recommend you get are Common Sense, Art of War and Rights of Man. While the game is playable without them, it would be best to either revert to a previous version or play only in Europe (even then, without AoW transfer occupation, it is quite annoying).
    If you can get past the DLC and the steep learning curve, the game will be a blast, and I can fully recommend it to anyone. -1 star for the DLCs however.

  11. Great strategy game
    by Laserguy, Slovenia - Sep 27th 2017

    This game is one of my favourite strategy games of all time. It has a lot of DLC, but I think they arent necesary to enjoy the game. The game has a big learning curve, but once you get over it its very fun to. I have more then 650 hours in this game.

  12. Brilliant strategy game
    by Cristi P., Romania - Sep 4th 2017

    I won't lie, this game is hard to get into (I tried picking it up several times it the past, but got annoyed with losing too much), but once you do, you can easily sink hundreds of hours into it. The world is richly detailed, the geography and history are largely accurate, and you get a significantly different experience depending on your starting nation and the goals you have in mind (near-endless re-playability in my mind).

    On the fence as to whether or not to detract a star (eventually elected not to), because of the ridiculous state of the DLCs. You need to do a heck of a lot of research to figure out which DLCs are worthwhile, and a lot of DLC packs are largely useless (containing mostly unit texture packs). Otherwise, the base game has a ton of content for the price anyway, but you will very likely feel the need to get the expansions once you get a taste of the original.

  13. Great strategy game
    by Lukas F.6, Czech Republic - Sep 1st 2017

    I just love this game. This game totally deserves to be called: The Grand Strategy. Each time you play everything is so different from the last time and that is what makes this game so great.

  15. Recommendation with a caveat
    by JRespaldiza, USA - Apr 28th 2017

    I do recommend buying EUIV to anyone who enjoys grand strategy games. However, unlike several of Paradox's other grand strategy games, EUIV is not a game that merely benefits from the released DLC, it nearly requires them. There are a number of gameplay innovations in the DLC that make it a much more enjoyable experience, and the base game - while still enjoyable - is poorer without them.
