Despite these small complaints and misgivings, Crusader Kings II is another excellent entry in Paradox's repertoire. If you loved Europa Universalis or Victoria, then chances are you'll fall in love with this game as well. If you're a newcomer to Paradox Grand Strategy games, then Crusader Kings II is an excellent title to jump in with its good tutorial and smaller scope.

PROS
* Excellent music
* Deep, non-military focused gameplay
* Intuitive GUI
* Good tutorial
* Near endless replay value
* Easy to mod and excellent fan-made content

CONS
* Graphics are unimpressive
* Empires are unbalanced
* No ability to play as Pagans, Muslims, or Republics
* Tutorial leaves out some crucial elements

Score: B+/A+
