Unlike the bulk of the games in the historic-strategy war game genre, Crusader Kings II offers so much more than simply raising your kingdom and conquering the world. The depth and richness of this game can’t possibly be accurately described. But picture this: you’re part of a gritty soap opera between the kingdoms of Europe and the Mediterranean during the feudal period then throw in dozens of presidential and military campaigns all going on simultaneously then mix it up with the ability to pursue every political, diplomatic, religious and social goal imaginable. I’m talking about asking questions like: I don’t like the Pope’s tax policies but want him as an ally, what do I do? Or should I force my youngest son to marry a paranoid 20 year-old woman just so I’d get on her hunchbacked father’s good side? It’s deep, immersive, punishing and rewarding all at the same time.
