Maybe I'll check it out.

I would advise against it. See my posts in this thread.

I wouldn't say it's broken (though it is in places), rather there is much room for improvement.

I'll respond to the Kokatu post.
TRUE 1. Video game publishers see game reviewers as marketing tools.

TRUE 2. Publishers sometimes allow positive reviews to be published before negative ones.

TRUE (not for me) 3. Publishers sometimes require game reviewers to not mention certain plot or technical details in exchange for being furnished with an advance review copy.

VERY TRUE (why I don't have ads) 4. Publishers might not want to advertise on an outlet that slams their games.

TRUE FOR CRAPPY WRITERS THAT HAVE NO BUSINESS DOING REVIEWS 5. Critics are often "at a loss for insightful ways of describing what they found objectionable" about a game they don't like.

DEFINE "BANAL" 6. Reviews are banal checklists.

I AM BIASED. I LIKE THINGS I LIKE AND HATE THINGS I HATE 7. Game reviewers may not know that they're biased, but "if they knew they were biased, would they tell us?"

TRUE 8. All these positive reviews from biased reviewers lead the public into accidentally playing bad games.

? 9. Legislators are happy when this mess results in pro-American games topping the charts.

? 10. "War has changed. When the battlefield is under total control, war becomes routine."

Last year, a student at the high school I teach at was seriously injured while riding a moped to school. It was just after the switch to DST and, since school starts at 7:30 AM, it was still dark out when he was hit by the car. If it was still standard time, I wonder if the driver would have seen the student.

I cant decide whether to get Crusader Kings2, or Wargame: EE....i'm leaning towards CK2 as i like single player, and i've not heard good things about wargame's single player.....opinions of people who own both?

The Wargame: EE single player is not so good; buy that for the MP.

Buy CK2 because it's awesome.

If it were just a one time flat fee of maybe $20 then it might be worth playing.

They tried that already.

the only feasible way of finishing the campaign in single player is unlocking the necessary units in multiplayer?

It was for me. I had to level up in multiplayer (it only took 3 games) to unlock enough points to pass the 2nd or 3rd scenario in the game. The campaign has some real balance issues that could have been solved if they simply added a difficulty slider that added or subtracted enemy units.
That said, multiplayer is fantastic.

Should do a video review next time

Video reviews are a lot of work. I have, however, started recording one gameplay video for each game that I review. For WEE, I did two: one for multiplayer and one for the campaign.

If you don't have AI, then you better have a large player base. Almost all indie games do not.
