The byzantine (as well as post-Byzantine) Europa Universalis IV soldiers on, raising the stakes for grand historical strategy games once more with its slew of fiddly new features, including a new system for quantifying your monarch’s influence, a complete trade system makeover and expanded diplomatic options. As usual, you can play as any of 250 historically aligned nations starting anywhere between 1444 A.D. and the late 18th century. The only thing it’s missing: a temporal freeze-ray, to give you the necessary days, weeks and months necessary to really learn and appreciate and exploit the outrageous complexity.
