is this some cheap version of crusader kings 2?
is there a huge difference between those two games? i wanted to buy it via one of those bundle things, because it looked like the only interessting one, but since i already own CK2 i dont want to buy a clone

its nothing even close to a clone. completely different, but at the same time buggy and not, NOT, not realistic.

It's in the same genre as Paradox games but very different from CK2:

- No character intrigue. The characters in Reign are strategy map agents similar to Total War, but with more unique abilities, and can multiclass.

- Reign gives much more control over army composition and slightly more control in battles.

- While CK2 is about claiming and holding titles and lands through personal and state diplomacy, Reign has more resource management while the diplomacy is comparatively much simpler.

- Reign has a later setting, with early firearms and cannons. It's entirely focused on eastern Europe.

I haven't played it enough to say how good it is at all this, but it looks solid enough. As to whether it's worth it, depends on how much you're gonna play it. Which might not be much unless you appreciate the setting, which is rarely seen in games. While it doesn't look lke the most hardcore thing I've ever played, I doubt casual buyers are gonna be drawn in for long at all. So if you really like what you see on the store page, get it, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

My kind of era and area of interest. Loved Medieval Total War 1 and 2 and played with factions mostly round that area.

I don't mind Paradox games. I suppose this is one to watch?
