It's on sale for 10 bucks right now and I've been wanting to try it out. Is the base game good? There's a bundle with some dlc for 20 bucks, and then a bigger bundle with more dlc for like 100. I'm not super into strategy games so I didn't want to commit so much money on it

The base game is outstanding but the DLC is really good too.

You say you're not super into strategy games though.....not sure it's worth your time if that's the case. It's pretty hardcore. But for 10 bucks, why not. Try it and see what you think.

Probably stay away. It takes several hours to even get an idea of what's going on.

Each DLC adds new mechanics and can change the game vastly. That said I would go with just the base game and see if its your cup of tea, before diving into the DLC money pit this game can be. I would also watch some youtube tutorials as they will be way better then the actual in game tutorials, just remember that this game has a very very steep learning curve. Also keep in mind the game shouldn't be about conquering the world, its more of the personal story that you can make for your family dynasty

Yeah it seems really different than other strategy games in that sense which is why I wanted to give it a go

It can be great fun if you have an awesome imagination, just wanted to warn you mostly of how steep it is to learn. For $10 its worth a shot

Don't expect a fast paced game with detailed combat. Paradox games are basically sandbox historical "strategy" games where you have to macro and micromanage a lot of various aspects of your government and you have to be willing to accept defeat or unexpected consequences. It is really daunting to get into but really rewarding if you do.

Base game is good, but the game can be very hard and there's no tutorial. So you'll end up playing learning from mistakes or watching people play in youtube. For starter, play iceland or ireland as it's relatively peaceful there which give you time to learn stuff.

It's a very abstract game compared to more popular strategy titles.

It's a good game according to everyone else, but I have never been able to understand it enough to actually play it properly. Stellaris might be a more noob friendly option.
