Back of the Box
Europe is in turmoil. The lands are fragmented into petty fiefs, the emperor struggles with the Pope, and the Holy Father declares that all those who go to liberate the Holy Land will be freed of their sins. Now is the time for greatness.
Increase your lands and fill your coffers, appoint vassals, battle traitors, introduce laws while interacting with hundreds of nobles, and create the most powerful dynasty of medieval Europe.
A beleaguered king will always have friends to support him. But beware, as your rule and realm may find trouble when a loyal vassal becomes a bitter rival. Stand ready, increase your prestige, and listen to the world whisper your name in awe.
Do you have what it takes to become a Crusader King?

Hey guys, could I change the graphic settings manually? My rig can run it max, but not on my laptop with intel GMA 4500mhd. The game allows me to change the res, but not the graphic options..

It says I can't play this game with the card I have. Now I know I'm not playing with the a high end card, by any means, but is the game really that graphic-intensive?

Yes, I have to agree with you. I was using my current GPU with old Athlon64 3500+ and it goes stuttering play. It benefits in CPU prowess ;>

Cool. I know my CPU can handle it. I'll see if I can download the demo from Steam and see how it runs.
