Eurogamer Italy

"Victoria 3 returns in all its glory and does not tune down its difficulty level. It's not a game for all, but once mastered it shows a depth that only a few other titles can...

GameWatcher

80 / 100
"Victoria 3 is a political and economic simulation of unparalleled depth, complexity and indifference to you. Stumble upon a narrative hook and it can reel you in, even if it...

PCGamesN

80 / 100
"An ambitious, beautiful, and obsessively detailed society simulation that still needs to iron out a few rough edges."

No support for Mac M1 chips. Dev is not responding to enquiry or ETA on M1 chips, until that does not get fixed this review will be 2 star. If not this would be a 10/5 game.

It's a great strategy game; with good economic and political mechanics. However, the combat is lackluster and I wished they kept the combat from its previous entry, Victoria 2.

I was hesitant to buy this game because a lot of people hate the game and say it is bad, but the graphics and intrest for the economic simlators convinced me to buy it and let me say it was not a bad decision. I find the game very fun and the graphics are stunning and yes there are cons like war altough i find war not as bad as people say but it can get a lot of improvement, and diplomacy is a bit flavourless, but i still enjoy the game a lot. (it has a bit of a learning curve) -------------------- SUMMARY--------------------------- PROS: *The graphics are amazing * The economic system is deep and interesting * The government system is a very interesting system (in a good way) * Lots to do, so it doesn't get boring (at least for me) CONS: * War, in my experience it is not as bad as people say but there is a lot of room for improvement * Diplomacy is in my opinion a bit flavorless * Sometimes random shit will happen in terms of events or random ai choises and chaos errupts * The ai is pretty dumb (but you have mods for improvement) ------------------------------ Conclusion: If you like social-economic simulators just buy the game you will have a great time

In depth economy manager, don't expect much from the war/action side of things. Good if you are ok with that.
