Game description

Sie führen Ihre gesamte Nation vom Zeitalter der absoluten Monarchien des frühen 19. Jahrhunderts durch die Ausweitung und Kolonisation bis hin zu einer großen Wirtschaftsmacht zu Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts.

Victoria II ist ein großartiges Strategiespiel in der Kolonialzeit des 19. Jahrhunderts. Sie übernehmen die Kontrolle über ein Land und führen dieses durch die Industrialisierung, politische Reformen, Militäreroberungen und die Kolonisation.

Sie erleben eine tiefgründige politische Simulation und jede noch so kleine Entscheidung, die Sie treffen, wird verschiedene Konsequenzen auf der ganzen Welt mit sich bringen. Die Bevölkerung wird sich Ihren Beschlüssen je nach deren politischem Bewusstsein, sozialer Schicht sowie dem Willen, die Entscheidungen der Regierung anzunehmen oder sich dagegen aufzulehnen, beugen.

    Tiefgründige politische Simulation mit Dutzenden von verschiedenen Regierungen.
    Detailgetreue Wirtschaftslage mit über 50 verschiedenen Güterarten und unterschiedlichen Fertigungsanlagen.
    Über 200 Länder stehen zur Auswahl, vom Jahr 1835 bis zum Beginn des Zweiten Weltkriegs.
    Fortschrittliches Technologiesystem mit tausenden von Erfindungen, die es zu entdecken gibt.
    Verbesserte Grafik und Interface sowie Mehrspieler-Support.
    Ein schnittiges Interface macht das Spiel leicht zugänglich.
    Automatisierung verschiedener Aufgaben wie Handel und Unterstützung der Bevölkerung.
    Erweitertes Einflussbereichssystem in welchem die bedeutenden Mächte der Welt um die Vorherrschaft kämpfen.
    Die Ära der Baumwollherstellung stellt die vorindustriellen Volkswirtschaften dar.
    Die sog. "Kanonenboot Diplomatie" gibt keinen Anlass zum Verhandeln, denn die Positionierung einer Flotte außerhalb eines Hafens könnte vielleicht ein besseres Argument darstellen.
    Historische und dynamische Missionen führen Ihr Land durch die Weltgeschichte.

This is probably my favorite Paradox game by far.


I enjoy almost every aspect of this game, the mechanics, the time period, the music, it's all 10/10 in my opinion. I remember when everything looked really intimidating, I had so many questions. How should I structure my army? How do I make money? What are pops? How do I manage my economy? I will say that it took me a while to get a basic grasp on the game's mechanics. I'd recommend watching someone on YouTube play it, and I strongly recommend reading the wiki page for this game if you want more in-depth tutorials. This game does become a lot more enjoyable once you get the hang of the mechanics, just have some patience and try not to get overwhelmed by everything. Vanilla V2 can get stale after a while but luckily there are many mods out there that can add a lot of good content to the game. If you enjoy Paradox games, history, or just wanna try something new, get this game.

Played it for a few hours, enjoyed it, 'tis a pretty good game.


In Victoria II (1836-1936) you manage your country throughout the industrial revolution. The game engine feels dated because it lacks a lot of quality of life improvements and it doesn't look too pretty. Underneath the hood, there is a complex system that keeps track of the population in great complexity, and if there was a Nobel Prize for video games, then this game would've won it. But even if there is a lot of complexity underneath, you don't really have that many options with what you can do. The AI is not that great and is vulnerable to large military stacks. You can't have more than two great powers allied, and while this is a much too "gamey" mechanic for my taste, alongside "crises" that can appear, it can lead to a lot of volatile situations. In the end, the world can be a pretty dangerous and unforeseeable place. If you have a lot of states in your sphere of influence, then your game can transform in a very tedious mini-game to properly maintain and manage them, and of course you lack at least a proper notification system for it. Overall it's a good game, with good mods, which can keep you hooked for a long time, but it really makes you yearn for a Victoria III. Rating: But Mom, you promised me Italy! Recommendation: Are you into grand strategy games even if they look dated? Want to play a Paradox Interactive mega-campaign?

Fun!! (but very complicated)


This game is very fun, much like EU4 and HOI3 I had a lot of fun with it. The only problem is the first few times playing I struggled... a lot. It's very hard to learn and get a clear idea of what your goal is and how you're going to achieve it. But I would recommend you buy it and have a go since its probably one of my favourite games.

Best game I've ever played


I have over 1500 hours in Victoria 2, it is the only game that I can keep coming back to and playing after years of already playing it. The mechanics of the game are very intuitive, but after becoming somewhat experienced the single player becomes easy. What shines through in this game though is the multiplayer. Despite the game being a bit buggy and going out of sync at times, the geopolitics with other players is insanely fun.

Complex but Great


Victoria II is the most complex game I've ever played. It has many problems, the greatest being its opaque and byzantine interface, but, hidden beneath that, is a fantastic game. Victoria II gives you the power to rewrite history at a pivotal moment in history. You can do everything from rule the British Empire as it was meant to be rules to spreading the revolution as a communist Confederate States of America. It is a true sandbox of history with complex economic and population simulation. The downsides of this are readily apparent, though. The economic simulation is so complex and hidden that, even after hundreds of hours playing the game, I have barely any idea how it works. The population systems works much better, but is still hard to understand at times. Victoria II is a fantastic game hidden beneath a horrid interface and complex and hard to understand simulations. If you have time to learn the interface and the systems that make Victoria II tick, you'll find a game worth sinking hundreds of hours into.
