"Start anywhere you like across the breadth of the planet. If 250 countries sounds cramping (for some insanely masochistic reason), how about 1,700 individually conquerable provinces and sea zones?"
...the game's streamlined interface and in-game help options should be more accessible to new players, while the highly open-ended, historical campaign structure may just swallow expert players whole for countless hours."
