    And thus I clothe my naked villainy
    With old odd ends stolen forth from holy writ
    And seem a saint when most I play the devil

    Very well written reviews, both of them even though I find the first review too forgiving concerning some of the downsides of CotN, while the second one is a bit harsh.

    Now there's a reviewer who's not read the manual properly!

    I have sent a correction regarding the review, explaining how to unload troops from ships and that it is not a bug.

    Gamer's Hell Review

    Another quite good review : http://www.gamershell.com/reviews_Cr...thReview.shtml

    An extract of this review : Crown of the North is a very deep and entertaining game. It's unique in the sense that no other strategy game has occupied itself with Scandinavian history prior to it, and it does the job well

    Crazy reviewer! He thinks that CotN is the "latest game in the series" and thus thinks Paradox foolish to downgrade game features/code from EU2.

    My review

    You can read my lukewarm review at www.wargamer.com. I think selling the product as EU Deluxe would have been a clearer way to market this.

    Yeah, that misleaded lots of people, but that is what the sticky is for.
    Also, I think it was Strategy First that attached EU to the title of the game.

    So if the game flops it stains the EU name, ruining Paradox's most recognizable franchise (IMO).

    Here's to hoping it doesn't flop, I doubt it would because everyplace I've seen has been sold out of it and Vicky.

    Well, I finally found out what this game was. It's not new, it has been for sale in Scandinavia for about 2 years, where it goes by the name Kongekamp.

    Has bugs in Svea Rike III (if there were any) been fixed for Crown of the North? And/or is it possible to patch Svea Rike ? I live in Norway and would like to buy Svea Rike III, because I obviously don't want to buy EU2 again.
