Support is Beyond Miserable
I played and loved Europa Universalis 1 & 2 but stopped playing games on my computer for a few years. When I saw version 3 was available I jumped but I wish I hadn’t. The tutorials are terrible and yes, as an experienced player of the previous versions I need tutorials. The introduction to the interface is sparse but decent enough. Then comes the indiscribably bad tutorial on units. Sure, I made an army and the tutorial recognized that. Then I moved it to Brandendurg. Nope the tutorial doesn’t know I did that. So ends the first tutorial. The second is about colonization which I sorta figured out but guess what? Yep, the tutorial doesn’t guide me any further.
Meanwhile this game was ported by one company and semi-supported by another. It is supposed to include several extra games that were originally extra content but it doesn’t. I gather one must first get a registration number and register the game with Paradox - but that’s a Paradox because the registration number comes from Virtual Programming which seems to take weekends and Mondays off. Maybe more than that, I don’t know. Without the tutorials I’m at a loss.
Maybe I’ll re-rate the game in the future but for now, if I could give it a negative star rating, I would. And now I’m off to rate another game - the game that returned me to Mac games - Xcom. Paradox and Virtual, if you are paying attention, this is how you do it right.
The game works great on my Macbook Pro. I had no trouble downloading it and it plays wonderfully. The game covers all the aspects of empire building I enjoy from resource management to invasion. The game contains a wealth of different countries to try out which is really cool. This allows me from saving money from having to buy several different games. I'm very pleased with this purchase. My only complaint, is that there is no manual, perhaps on the website?
Good but needs a bit of work
I find that this port of EU3 is great and works fine for the most part. But every now and then it does crash, and I am also missing textures for the buildings menu when you click on your provinces. It also crashes when forming Spanish nation for some reason. An update with bug fixes would make this a five star rating.
