Critic Reviews for Victoria 3

Victoria 3's attractive historical sandbox is filled with potential, but it's on you to unlock it.

Victoria 3 is a remarkable, if a bit janky, nation-builder with ocean-deep political and economic systems that suck you in and don't let go.

An extraordinarily detailed economy and range of interlinking systems make Victoria 3 a grand strategy to rival some of Paradox's best.

A hallmark of excellence. There may be flaws, but they are negligible and won't cause massive damage.

This game should be used as a training tool for politicians worldwide. A harsh, uncompromising simulation of global socioeconomic power struggle.

Victoria 3 is an incredibly detailed strategy game that's as laborious as it is rewarding. You'll need to put in the work and be prepared to spend a lot of time busying yourself while waiting for things to complete.

Victoria 3 is a grand strategy game with perhaps too much depth and complexity for genre newbies, and genre veterans might find the simplified warfare a turn-off. That said, I am wholly invested. It’s the most sandboxy of the Paradox lineup so far and I’ve been enjoying my time with it immensely. It is gorgeous, impressive, and absolutely worth the time it takes to learn. Now onto my fourth playthrough. The World Welsh Order will rise, mark my words.

Victoria 3 is a complex and deep global strategy game that can pull you in for hundreds of hours. But attempt to make it accessible to beginners isn't successful.
