Summary: To begin with, I was a diehard HOI2 fan, having played every major power in the game, often many times. In HOI 3 so far I've played Germany several times now, with 25+ hours of game time in HOI 3 is basically the same concept, with a changed interface. First negative: no manual.
Summary: good game, but not for the feint of heart. You have to be a detail oriented die hard war gamer not only to play this game but also in appreciate it as well....At least that's my felling about it. I also found the service timely and beyond my expectation.
Summary: This doesn't come with the final expansion of the series, Their Finest Hour. It's a great game but TFH should have been included if this was a "complete" collection. In reality, this collection is from 2011 and is not complete. Which isn't so bad, but I didn't realize this when I bought it.
Summary: The game does not work at all on the newest mac operating systems. After updating to 10.9, the game will not even open. Crashes on startup. Seriously, if you have an older mac, Maaaaaaybe it'll run for you. But if you have a newer OS, do not even bother.
Summary: It arrived today. Works on windows7 64 pro. Tried a game and had forgotten how the Hearts of Iron series plays. Lots of screens. Also feels like it cheats towards the computer player. But it arrived in good shape.
Summary: Downloaded this game, looks like a bargain to me. Upon downloading, it crashes at game launch, repeatedly. Tried launching it, restarting my laptop, reinstalling the game. None of the above works. I am using Retina Macbook Pro, 2012 version. With OS Maverick. 8GB ram, i7..... IT JUST DONT WORK!
Summary: This game spans all the macro facets of world war 2--economics, trade, every branch of the military, underground resistance, intelligence, battle tactics, battle strategies, leadership, etc., etc.. The only downer was that it ends Jan. 1, 1948--you want it to go on and on and on.
