The game that's lauded as the godfather of grand strategy games couldn't have returned with its third offering at a better time. Crusader Kings 3 comes to fill our days with meticulous medieval management glory as we find ourselves at home and with very little to do. Previously, players often found it challenging to find the time they want to dedicate to this game. Now, we have near-infinite time to revel in its beauty.
But let's not get ahead of ourselves. Whether Crusader Kings 3 is a good game is a small matter. Considering games in the series have been released in 8-year increments, and they've only gotten better with each entry, we have high expectations for this strategy sim. Fingers crossed that the game will fill our days with riches and rewards from the medieval days.
A Dynasty Foretold
Any fans of the series would not be expecting any massive innovations in Crusader Kings 3. After all, the game's concept of building and managing a medieval dynasty was already immersive and ambitious; only each entry needed some improvements. 8-years from the predecessor, there's been some massive hardware upgrades, meaning that this game could facilitate even more intricate management mechanics.
So what's going on in Crusader Kings 3? This grand strategy sim is essentially the same game, but it is refined to an absolute tee! Everything you could want from a medieval empire simulator, from plot twists, family feuds, political campaigning, and massive holy wars. Players are in complete control - and the best part, Crusader Kings 3 looks excellent.
The complicated interfaces have been cleaned up, the stories of your dynasty are so immersive, and the challenges of scandal keep on pouring in. It's an accurate representation of running a medieval household, being the leader trying to overcome your family's unrest, rebellion, and unfavorable characteristics. You'll have to make some tough decisions, but that's the game's beauty.
Crusader Kings 3 is worthy of the hype simply because it's so well threaded together. New players to the series might have more time getting their heads around the game's complex mechanics. However, this entry has a lot more friendliness towards unseasoned strategy gamers. It's worth vesting the time considering the endless hours of gameplay you'll eventually pursue.
Medieval Mayhem Has Never Been So Wonderful
Crusader Kings 3 is one of those games where you have to concern yourself with others just as much as you want to dominate. Ruling with an iron grip becomes near impossible when even your family intends to oust you from power. But carving your story from an authentic historical backdrop is unbelievably entertaining.
Crusader Kings 3 has perfected what needed work from previous titles. Similar titles like Sid Meier’s Civilization VI don't hold a candle to the seamlessness and immersive nature the game brings the player. Despite all the real horrors and obstacles of the 700-year or so medieval age - the game plays like a dream. There's not much more you could ask for here.
