Crusader Kings 3, Paradox Interactive’s newest addition to its medieval strategy RPG series, is out September 1. Ahead of the launch, we’ve rounded up a selection of reviews to help you decide if Crusader Kings 3 is worth it.
Critics generally praised Crusader Kings 3 highly. It has everything that players loved Crusader Kings 2 for: an imaginative and expansive strategy component, coupled with an in-depth and compelling RPG element.
David Wildgoose, in GameSpot’s Crusader Kings 3 review, gave the game a high score of 8/10. Wildgoose stated, “[T]he singular vision of Crusader Kings 3 [is] a grand strategy game that successfully operates across a bewildering scale, feeling vast and unknowable one moment yet awkwardly intimate the next. It’s a marvel of connectivity, effectively linking together complementary elements plucked from different genres–the role-playing game, the visual novel, the life simulation, the city-builder, the wargame–even if at times you can sense it straining at the seams.”
