Crusader Kings II. . . I just learned to love this game. It has grown into one of my absolute favorite strategy games and the game hours are constantly adding up. But what is Crusader Kings II actually? Well, the easiest way to describe it is to say that...
you have to manage and expand an empire there but keep sets in the family you started with. If your family dies out, the game ends automatically. And then there is the high realism (for me, who played only the Total War games before). You can't just attack everyone and everything. But you should also be aware that when playing as a small empire, long phases of waiting are always intigrated, but I recommend music or even movies or videos). Admittedly, when you start Crusader Kings II you have to feel like it. . . otherwise you turn it off right away. If you start the game for the first time and have never played another paradox game before, then you will experience its blue wonder. But once you understand it, it's fun. Regarding the performance of the game I can say that it runs almost without problems on my computer (4gb RAM, 1gb graphics chip, 3. 1 Ghz processor), but it gets slower and slower as the game progresses. So, if, for example, the highest lead time at the beginning is a year in 2 minutes, then maybe 300 years later in the game it would already be 5-6 minutes. I can still play like this, but people with similar requirements (especially in memory) should be aware of that. Also, you should be aware that there is a lot of trouble here at the always demonized Dlc policy. If I had to rate the content in relation to the content with all the Dlcs, then there would be a thumb down. The Dlcs bring important and great features (e. g. that you can finally play republics, Muslims, Germans, Indians or Mongols, or that you get two new starting ages). If you buy Crusader Kings II, you should be ready to get all the Dlcs one by one. My conclusion: Crusader Kings II is a great choice for both casual gamers and strategy fanatics, where you can lose hundreds of hours, an absolute must, especially for fans of the Middle Ages.
