IncGamers: Victoria II Review

IncGamers' Peter Parrish reviews the follow-up to Paradox Interactive's 2003 release Victoria: Under The Sun; one of the most complex titles from a company whose entire catalogue starts at "tricky strategy game" and ends with "beard-strokingly bamboozling strategy behemoth."

From the review:

"Too often, incidents arise that the player is left baffled by. Although the tutorial provides a fine, multi-tiered introduction to the game, it is powerless to explain more pointed questions like 'why do my factories keep closing under a laissez faire government?' or 'how the hell do I effectively manipulate my upper house into a position where they will enact social reforms?'" (PC, Victoria 2)

Tutorials are always important!

Especially in this case. It's actually a good one, it just can't deal with the intricacies of the game.
