GameWatcher

85 / 100
"Victoria 2 is one of those games where it's easy to expect more from it than it can actually give. Giving its dedication to history, depth, strategy etc... fans can get a bit...

Metro GameCentral

70 / 100
"As impossibly complex as it is deep, but running your own empire proves to be hugely engrossing for those that put in the man hours."

GameSpot

75 / 100
"Thanks to a friendlier interface and tutorials, Victoria II is a lot more playable and enjoyable than its predecessor."
