PC System Analysis For Europa Universalis IV Requirements
Europa Universalis IV requires a Radeon X1900 Series graphics card with a Core 2 Duo E6550 2.33GHz or Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5600+ processor to reach the recommended specs, achieving high graphics setting on 1080p. You should also have 2 GB system memory. The best chance at playing this at minimum sys specs on a 1280x720 screen res will be if your PC has at least the GeForce 8800 GT/Radeon X1900 Series graphics card. The CPU required to meet minimum requirements is a Athlon XP 3500+/Pentium 4 2.4GHz processor. With that PC you will be getting around 30FPS on low graphics and may need to adjust some of the other Europa Universalis IV graphics options. Minimum RAM requirements are 2 GB system memory. Your graphics card will need to be capable of running DirectX 9.00. This means you will require a 14 year old PC to play smoothly.

Same. what I found out is this game is really CPU intensive. So if you wanna run this game at 60+ fps 5 times speed. You'll have to get a beast processor.

Can anyone tell me that this game is similar to age of empires 3 or not?

it is nothing like age of empire three sorry. This is a grand strategy game meaning that there is a lot of micromanaging, while age of Empires III is an rts. Europa Universalis does have rts elements in it, but there is no real comparison.

I downloaded a demo off of steam and it seems to work fine. Not sure if I would be able to run the full version if I bought it though.

MAX EVERYTHING and you'll get 40+FPS at your resolution.
FPS might drop a bit if you use faster game speed(time)

I believe low, maybe even medium. I ran this on an Athlon II X2 3.5 GHZ and an HD 5450 so yeah, I think it should work.

The gfx ratings seems wrong, My graphics card is ****, I play on a laptop so you can't expect much, it's a mobility graphics card and apparently my card is 483% less powerful than minimum settings, But I can play the game with some options turned off with only a little bit of lag.

where i can find a full guide for this game? i spend alot of time in tutorials but the game is still complicated for me, i haven't played the third one and i think it's because of that.
also my native language is not english and it's hard for me to learn it during play with the tips that pointer shows. in this way it's just tiring!
