Europa Universalis lets the player take control of one of seven European Nations (others are available in different scenarios) from 1444 to 1821, expanding its power through military might, diplomacy, and colonial wealth. The game takes place on a Map divided into approximately 3,633 Provinces, and proceeds in a pausable real time format.
The editors of Computer Games Magazine nominated Europa Universalis as the best strategy game of 2001, but ultimately gave the award to Civilization III. Europa Universalis received "generally favourable" reviews according to review aggregator Metacritic.
