Hello!
As far as I understood this game was the game which tested some new instruments before release of CK2. But does this game worth it? I meant the following questions to be more specific:

1) Does the A.I. using all of the game's features or it is lame like in EU2 (where he never used loans, mercenaries and pirates)?

2) Is their is a good balance in this game or sides of the conflict are completely unbalanced?

3) Do you think that this game is inferior to CK2?

Thanks in advance for honest answers!

Does this game play Mike like CK2 or EU
Per the other reply in that thread you necro'd: it's a middle ground of CKI and CKII at release. If you're only used to CKII as it is now, it's waaaaay more like CKI.
