The other problem Paradox has, and I suppose it’s not a bad one for fans, is that a lot of the interesting new content that arrived with this expansion turned up in the accompanying free patch – I’ve been having lots of fun as a tribal ruler under the revised mechanics, for example, and I didn’t have to pay anything for the privilege. Still, the additional features like expanded cultural diversity, new leadership decisions, your personal chronicle that records your greatest achievements, and the ability to create your own kingdoms and empires are welcome, and largely make up for the underwhelming story events.

The narrative element of Charlemagne proves to be a bit of a let down, but potentially a rough introduction to something similar, but better, later down the line. The very small additions like an overhaul of the regency system and climate/attrition mechanics are all good, even if a lot of players will probably overlook them. It’s a good reason to get into Crusader Kings II yet again, even if it’s not the best addition yet.
