It doesn't work on 64-bit Windows.
For that reason, it's the only AGEOD game I don't have.
I play GI on Windows 7 64-bit with no issues other than the resolution is only at 1024x768 which makes for a smaller gaming window or a stretched screen on my 23" LED.
I've played GI somewhat and think it's okay at best. The graphics are somewhat primitive like the original EU's graphics compared to now. Controlling multiple countries is quite a challenge and you may find yourself jumping from country to country making decisions. On the other hand, you're always doing something during the game and there's never really a dull or slow moment like there can be with EU and the other Paradox games when you just watch the clock tick by while you await events.

Grim.Reaper, you play with multiple nations because the game is designed to kill off nations as they age and whither like the western Roman Empire did. When a nation becomes an "empire", it becomes harder to prevent it from falling apart. But as new nations appear in the game, you can 'bid' on them to play as them. You also play as one of the major religions such as the Catholic Church. However there is a modification that a person can do to change the game so that you only play as a single nation. It's a change to a few files and thus I can play as, let's say, the western Roman Empire only.
