Nice game, still can´t understand why you can make tanks out of fruits. I have failed chemistry though. That might explain it. Better than hoi4 and you can actually buy all the dlc without going bankrupt. HPM is a must. It provides better reform possibilities and just generally improves on the game.

Aus heutiger Sicht (leider) deutlich veraltete Grafik und ein deutlich veraltetes System. Allerdings ist Victoria 2, wenn man davon absieht, nach wie vor gut zu spielen. Dinge, die der dritte Teil definitiv verbessern sollte, sind logische Dinge die ohnehin aufgrund der Zeit kommen werde, beispielsweise ein neues Layout und so weiter. Was meiner Meinung nach aber noch ergänzt werden sollte, ist das Regierungssystem etwas zu vereinfachen.
Alles in allem ein gelungenes Strategiespiel mit interessantem historischen Zeitpunkt, aber leider alles andere als zeitgemäß.

The best game Paradox game. With the correct mods (HPM as on example) it is so much deeper and fun than other games, including classics like CK II and EU IV (honestly I never could get into the later).
You can see how they developed the game with passion and care compared to Imperator which is just sad.
If you are a fan 4X strategy games, like history, or politics, war, or just changing the history, this is a jewel that Paradox doesn't want people to get into because it is better than their new games -therefore we still don't have a Victoria III. Maybe it's for the better.

Like any Paradox game with out expansions the game is fine but lacking, but with expansions its one of the best strategy games ever made. Made even better with mods! Easily worth it on sale with everything included. The only down side being it doesn't go in depth enough on the government side of things.

I love this game so much. It's one of the best paradox games because there is more to it than just war. It's the only paradox game that makes peacetime meaningful. 9/10 would recommend. One criticism: The game is unplayable without DLC, so buy it; i promise it is worth it. Also, the HFM/HPM mods make the game 10x better.

Ever feel like you missed out on the scramble for Africa? Have you wanted to send millions of men to die in WWI? Have you ever wanted your nation to crumble under crippling economic sanctions? Then this is the game for you!

In all seriousness Victoria 2 is one of the best paradox games out there. Although it has it's problems, and is dated in many ways, it still holds up as a solid grand strategy game.

Pros:
1. Pops. The Pop system makes this game truly awesome and gives each nation a unique feel. Pops represent your actual population and their statistics determine how your nation functions. For example, a nation such as the UK has high literacy and a well established industrial base, which allows for faster industrialization, whereas a country like Columbia has a relatively low literacy and poorly established industry, which makes the early game about educating and establishing industry, which gives it a much different feel than the UK. It also gives each nation a concrete way to tell how well off a nation is, which differs from games like Hoi4 where each nation has similar levels of development or EU4 which can sometimes feel like just stacking modifiers.
2. Conquest. Both EU4 and HOI4, for as great as they are, feel very much like map painting. Vic2, however, discourages map painting, and instead offers alternative methods such as sphereing, which prevents conflicts over regions from escalating to full scale war at points. Additionally, units take up real pops, so fighting a large war can cost you much of your army, which taps into your real population, aka wars cause you to lose pops which requires you to spend time at peace to recover from wars.
3. Economy. The economy in Vic2 feels realistic and encourages the acquisition of new sources of RGOs, or Resource Gathering Operations. This enourages things like building a large sphere, or in cases of non world powers, specializing your industry to fit the resources available to you. This can make different nations follow different paths of conquest. For example, a nation like the USA has an abundance of RGO to build industry, whereas nations like Japan will have to expand to get what they want, making each nations economic situation unique. Additionally, the fact that goods are sold on an open market makes things like wars have massive effects on world trade.

There are numerous other pros, such as modability.

Cons:
1. UI. The UI feel really dated, and fails to notify you of many things. For example, countries will break alliances, and you can only see that in a little area on your screen, so you often miss important information. Additionally, I feel the game should better notify you of major changes like shifting great power alliances.
2. Rebels. They are crazy. Like I get that you have to keep your population happy, but I should not be having nationwide revolts as a stable nation cause my pops dont have a bit of wool. There are ways to fix this, but it can still be a problem.

However, the pro far outweigh the cons. A couple suggestions however:
1. GET. ALL. DLC. Seriously get all the dlc and the game on sale. You dont need all the unit packs, just Heart of Darkness and House divided. Most mods require both.
2. Start with vanilla, but I recommend switching to HPM soon. HPM is kinda like Vanilla+ and adds a lot more historical content while still keeping it vanilla like.

Overall, great buy!

This is an amazing game. If you've played EU4 and are looking for a new side game, this is it.
There are 2 majors problems with Victoria 2.
1. Windows 10 and Vicky2 don't always mash together, if the game doesn't launch, you need to search the internet/steam discussions for a fix.
2. While I've played 250 hours, this game seriously lacks content. I wish paradox hadn't abandoned it and tried to release a few more expansions.

All in all, if you like Grand Strategy Games, I recommend Victoria as a side game.

Yes, Mr.President, the mass killing in Africa and Asia is an important step in achieving financial stability in our country. What do you mean this is barbaric and immoral ? And what do you mean when you say that we can't just use gas against them because of some Geneva Convention that we sighned? What do you mean anarcho-liberals are rising up all over the country? What? Now Jacobins are rose up against us and doing what? Killing those liberals? Wait what is going on? WHAT? A GREAT WAR OVER BANAT? Why are even fighting there? Because we are a allies of BANAT? WHY ARE WE ALLIES WITH BANAT? WHAT DO YOU MEAN THEY ARE OUR ONLY ALLIES? Ok...ok... we need a fleet to transfer our soldiers there. What? We can't build a fleet? Why? Because we don't have steel and that there is no steel on a market? Ok, maybe we can... What? We already lost a war and now we don't have most of our armies and fleets. And WHAT? We are no longer a great power and in Mongolian sphere of influence? Ok, I think a need a rest... WHAT DO YOU MEAN THAT WE LOST OUR LAST ARMIES IN AFRICA TRYING ESTABLISHING A PROTACTORATE OVER SOKOTO? HOW?!HOW?! You know, I don't think that I can be impresed by anything anymore... WHAT?

The Condition of the Working Class in England (German: Die Lage der arbeitenden Klasse in England) is an 1845 book by the German philosopher Friedrich Engels, a study of the industrial working class in Victorian England. Engels' first book, it was originally written in German as Die Lage der arbeitenden Klasse in England; an English translation was published in 1885. It was written during Engels' 1842–44 stay in Manchester, the city at the heart of the Industrial Revolution, and compiled from Engels' own observations and detailed contemporary reports.

After their second meeting in 1844, Karl Marx read and was profoundly impressed by the book.
Contents

Summary

In Condition, Engels argues that the Industrial Revolution made workers worse off. He shows, for example, that in large industrial cities such as Manchester and Liverpool, mortality from disease (such as smallpox, measles, scarlet fever and whooping cough) was four times that in the surrounding countryside, and mortality from convulsions was ten times as high. The overall death-rate in Manchester and Liverpool was significantly higher than the national average (1 in 32.72, 1 in 31.90 and even 1 in 29.90, compared with 1 in 45 or 46). An interesting example shows the increase in the overall death-rates in the industrial town of Carlisle was before the introduction of mills (1779–87), 4,408 out of 10,000 children died before reaching the age of five, and after their introduction, the figure rose to 4,738. Before the introduction of mills, 1,006 out of 10,000 adults died before reaching 39 years old, and after their introduction, the death rate rose to 1,261 out of 10,000.

Engels' interpretation proved to be extremely influential with British historians of the Industrial Revolution. He focused on both the workers' wages and their living conditions. He argued that the industrial workers had lower incomes than their pre-industrial peers and they lived in more unhealthy and unpleasant environments. This proved to be a very wide-ranging critique of industrialization and one that was echoed by many of the Marxist historians who studied the industrial revolution in the 20th century.[1]

Originally addressed to a German audience, the book is considered by many to be a classic account of the universal condition of the industrial working class during its time. The eldest son of a successful German textile industrialist, Engels became involved in radical journalism in his youth. Sent to England, what he saw there made him even more radical.

In 1844, in Paris, Engels met and formed his lifelong intellectual partnership with Karl Marx. Engels showed Marx his book; [2][3] convincing Marx that the working class could be the agent and instrument of the final revolution in history.[4][5]

W. O. Henderson and W.H. Chaloner, who edited a recent edition of The Condition of the Working Class in England, say that the book was based on incomplete evidence but that it established Engels's reputation among socialists.[6]
The German original

In the original German edition he said:

The condition of the working class is the real basis and point of departure of all social movements of the present because it is the highest and most unconcealed pinnacle of the social misery existing in our day. French and German working class Communism are its direct, Fourierism and English Socialism, as well as the Communism of the German educated bourgeoisie, are its indirect products. A knowledge of proletarian conditions is absolutely necessary to be able to provide solid ground for socialist theories, on the one hand, and for judgments about their right to exist, on the other; and to put an end to all sentimental dreams and fancies pro and con. But proletarian conditions exist in their classical form, in their perfection, only in the British Empire, particularly in England proper. Besides, only in England has the necessary material been so completely collected and put on record by official enquiries as is essential for any in the least exhaustive presentation of the subject. We Germans more than anybody else stand in need of a knowledge of the facts concerning this question. And while the conditions of existence of Germany's proletariat have not assumed the classical form that they have in England, we nevertheless have, at bottom, the same social order, which sooner or later must necessarily reach the same degree of acuteness as it has already attained across the North Sea, unless the intelligence of the nation brings about in time the adoption of measures that will provide a new basis for the whole social system. The root-causes whose effect in England has been the misery and oppression of the proletariat exist also in Germany and in the long run must engender the same results.[7]

English editions

The book was translated into English in 1885 by an American, Florence Kelley (also known as Florence Kelley Wischnewetzky). Authorised by Engels and with a newly written preface by him, it was published in 1887 in New York and in London in 1891. These English editions had the qualification in 1844 added to the English title.

Engels in his 1892 preface said:

The author, at that time, was young, twenty-four years of age, and his production bears the stamp of his youth with its good and its faulty features, of neither of which he feels ashamed. The state of things described in this book belongs to-day, in many respects, to the past, as far as England is concerned. Though not expressly stated in our recognised treatises, it is still a law of modern Political Economy that the larger the scale on which capitalistic production is carried on, the less can it support the petty devices of swindling and pilfering which characterise its early stages.

Again, the repeated visitations of cholera, typhus, small-pox and other epidemics have shown the British bourgeois the urgent necessity of sanitation in his towns and cities, if he wishes to save himself and family from falling victims to such diseases. Accordingly, the most crying abuses described in this book have either disappeared or have been made less conspicuous.

But while England has thus outgrown the juvenile state of capitalist exploitation described by me, other countries have only just attained it. France, Germany and especially America, are the formidable competitors who, at this moment – as foreseen by me in 1844 – are more and more breaking up England's industrial monopoly. Their manufactures are young as compared with those of England, but increasing at a far more rapid rate than the latter; and, curious enough, they have at this moment arrived at about the same phase of development as English manufacture in 1844. With regard to America, the parallel is indeed most striking. True, the external surroundings in which the working class is placed in America are very different, but the same economical laws are at work, and the results, if not identical in every respect, must still be of the same order. Hence we find in America the same struggles for a shorter working-day, for a legal limitation of the working-time, especially of women and children in factories; we find the truck-system in full blossom, and the cottage-system, in rural districts, made use of by the 'bosses' as a means of domination over the workers.

It's not that bad, but really starting to show it's age. Horrible UI, the intro literally uses a video player for some weird reason, no observe command, no zooming out after a certain point. It makes up for that in gameplay which is pretty good but god this game desperately needs a sequel.

Reviewing games I played a long time before:

I clocked dozens of hours in my non-Steam copy, but to be honest I played a lot less than the original Victoria, even though, in my opinion, this sequel is an improvement in all regards. In the late 90's was a mega fan of the old Imperialism game and the Victoria series were the only games that managed to keep the same spirit and tackle the same historic period, so I naturally fell in love with them. Anyway, for those who don't know, the Victoria series play more or less like other Paradox grand-strategy games but with insane micromanagement :D

Ever feel like you missed out on the scramble for Africa? Have you wanted to send millions of men to die in WWI? Have you ever wanted your nation to crumble under crippling economic sanctions? Then this is the game for you!

In all seriousness Victoria 2 is one of the best paradox games out there. Although it has it's problems, and is dated in many ways, it still holds up as a solid grand strategy game.

Pros:
1. Pops. The Pop system makes this game truly awesome and gives each nation a unique feel. Pops represent your actual population and their statistics determine how your nation functions. For example, a nation such as the UK has high literacy and a well established industrial base, which allows for faster industrialization, whereas a country like Columbia has a relatively low literacy and poorly established industry, which makes the early game about educating and establishing industry, which gives it a much different feel than the UK. It also gives each nation a concrete way to tell how well off a nation is, which differs from games like Hoi4 where each nation has similar levels of development or EU4 which can sometimes feel like just stacking modifiers.
2. Conquest. Both EU4 and HOI4, for as great as they are, feel very much like map painting. Vic2, however, discourages map painting, and instead offers alternative methods such as sphereing, which prevents conflicts over regions from escalating to full scale war at points. Additionally, units take up real pops, so fighting a large war can cost you much of your army, which taps into your real population, aka wars cause you to lose pops which requires you to spend time at peace to recover from wars.
3. Economy. The economy in Vic2 feels realistic and encourages the acquisition of new sources of RGOs, or Resource Gathering Operations. This enourages things like building a large sphere, or in cases of non world powers, specializing your industry to fit the resources available to you. This can make different nations follow different paths of conquest. For example, a nation like the USA has an abundance of RGO to build industry, whereas nations like Japan will have to expand to get what they want, making each nations economic situation unique. Additionally, the fact that goods are sold on an open market makes things like wars have massive effects on world trade.

There are numerous other pros, such as modability.

Cons:
1. UI. The UI feel really dated, and fails to notify you of many things. For example, countries will break alliances, and you can only see that in a little area on your screen, so you often miss important information. Additionally, I feel the game should better notify you of major changes like shifting great power alliances.
2. Rebels. They are crazy. Like I get that you have to keep your population happy, but I should not be having nationwide revolts as a stable nation cause my pops dont have a bit of wool. There are ways to fix this, but it can still be a problem.

However, the pro far outweigh the cons. A couple suggestions however:
1. GET. ALL. DLC. Seriously get all the dlc and the game on sale. You dont need all the unit packs, just Heart of Darkness and House divided. Most mods require both.
2. Start with vanilla, but I recommend switching to HPM soon. HPM is kinda like Vanilla+ and adds a lot more historical content while still keeping it vanilla like.

Overall, great buy!

most cursed paradox game they own

>be me, Russia
>managed to get an alliance with both Prussia and Austria at start of game
>they both have a political dispute and declare war on each other
>i back up the Austrians to prevent Prussia from forming Germany early
>war ends and in the treaty i turned Rhineland into an independent country
>Rhineland being grateful they wouldn't exist without me becomes my bff
>through mods I had a Beethoven concert event start and normally Prussia gets the event every game but they didn't own the province Beethoven lived in, it was Rhineland
>Rhineland through all the prestige they got from Beethoven and all the factories I was building in their country (turns out Rhineland is one of the best Iron/Coal provinces in Europe) they turn into a secondary power
>After turning into a secondary power they figure the best way to flex their muscles is to declare war on a one province country that is in Austria's sphere
>As I'm fighting Austrian troops on my polish border, Prussia decides it wants its best provinces back and declares war on Rhineland
>It's 1850-1860 Austria and Prussian troops are pushing into my polish lands as im scrambling troops to try and create a frontline
>Then, the ai with its 5-head logic, Austria and Prussia decide to kick off the brothers war while all of their troops are in poland kicking my ass

So you got Russia, Austria, and Prussia all fighting each other in a 3 way war, freeforall style, its battleroyale poland

This literally can't get any more crazy

If you get this game, get all the dlc (A house divided and heart of darkness), and if you do that, download the Historical Project Mod (HPM). It's only 2 dlc, and it's fairly cheap.

If you're coming from another pdx game and you find this game tough to get into, a couple tips.

1) Every pdx game has sort of a core focus. Eu focuses on map painting, hoi focuses on tactical combat, ck focuses on kingdom management within feudalism. In Vic, you focus on pops and economy. So if it's stressing you out that you're not constantly warring like in eu4, that's perfectly fine.

2) A few fundamental truths about the game. This is set during a period of rapid industrialization. This means...

- You want your farmers and labourers (people who work the land) to become craftsmen (people who work in factories). Get technology that makes your farms/mines more efficient, and encourage people to join your factories.
- This means artisans (people who make specialized goods prior to industrialization generally speaking) will occasionally starve to death. Don't worry, this is normal. Fuck the poor
- Capitalists are retarded and have no concept of supply chains or making use of your RGOs (a good the province produces), so build your own factories early on, and match them with corresponding RGOs and create supply chains within the same state. After your core economy is established, it's not as important to build anymore (save for new techs). To do this, you need a government that allows you to build factories (State Capitalism)
- One slightly less intuitive thing about this game is that being really successful doesn't correlate quite as strongly with how big your country looks on a map compared to other pdx titles. You want prestige, industry score and military score, so things like literacy rates, technology, population density, good raw materials like iron/coal are more useful than blobbing if you want to become stronk.
- If your factory isn't getting a critical resource, there's a very good chance that its in very high demand on the world market. Check the trade screen and connect the dots.
- Everything is incentive based in this game. In eu4 and ck3, you can just conscript people into your army at the drop of a dime if you have the money. In vic2, you need to convince people that joining the army is worthwhile, so drag that slider up!

Hope these tips help.

best paradox game. one aspect i never see praised in this game is its tight pacing. 100 years is such a good length, every action feels meaningful. in other paradox games i get bogged down in boredom and just sort of give up on a playthrough without a satisfactory conclusion. That never happens in Vic 2.

This game is awesome, I've wasted numerous hours watching that green line in the corner go up and down.

Excellent game, hard to get into but it's worth it. There are plenty of guides on the internet and plenty of mods to spice things up. Once you get the hang of it, this game gives you so many options to meme the map, only big downside is the painful micromanagement later on in the game if you have a big army. The game could also use some quality of life updates but over all its unlike any other game, even other paradox games.
