Most Immersive Grand-Strategy Game Ever Made

Denis, Amazon
8 May 2011
  • Summary: Hearts of Iron 3 is without a doubt, the most in-depth WAR game ever made. If you've never played a paradox before, you'll be in for a major surprise. It took me roughly a month of every day play to "master" all of the basics. The tutorials are woefully inadequate and a complete waste of time, but the strategy guide is a gem and the paradox forum is an excellent resource. To ease your learning, parts of the game can be automated.

With 1.4 Patch, this is a great game

David Lanham, Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered Hearts of Iron 3 as soon as I could, and was very excited when it got to me last year. I will admit that back then, when I loaded the game up for the first time, I was very disappointed. The main problem that I had with the game was that it ran very slowly. Right off the bat, loading up as Germany in 1936, it took around 30 seconds to 1 minute in real time for each day to pass in game. That was simply too slow for me.

fun for those that like deep strategy games

  • Summary: For those that like deep strategy gaming this is the game for you. Make sure and download the latest patch as it has fixed allot of the bugs that the original release had. I'm a big WWII buff and a strategy nut so it fit me perfectly. I recommended it to my friends that like in depth strategy games like this.

Good start

Leslie L. Odgers, Amazon
9 November 2009
  • Summary: Still playing it and will continue. It has issues but it's complicated. Some customers gripe at the AI controlling things, simple, don't let the AI control. The management doesn't take that long, the group I play with plays at speed 2 during combat and pause when we need it. I Suspect that the bad critiques are form those who call Command and Conquer a strategy game... HAHA, it's not! C&C is ok if all you have is 20 minutes to figure out a game and 2 hours to play it.

Good concept, still rough around the edges

Amazon Customer, Amazon
18 September 2009
  • Summary: I'm a big fan of the HOI series, and I have spent a lot of hours in the last month playing HOI3. So I have gotten my money's worth. One of the troubles with Paradox games is that people get disgruntled after a hours and hours of gameplay without thinking how low the actual cost per hour is compared to a game that you play once in a weekend and then never touch again.

HOI 3 for the hardcore grognards

J. B. Kramer "photoburner", Amazon
12 September 2009
  • Summary: HOI 3 is a WWII military sim game where you get to play just about any country in the time period of 1936 to 1950. Those dates can be expanded by using mods for other players. You control military events as well as diplomacy, intelligence, research and production. Playing one of the major powers leads to a more enjoyable game at least for the first game or two. This game can take weeks to complete one game.

  • Summary: I enjoyed playing through this game it gave me a sense of achivement as I went through, It hasnt strayed to far away from its previous brotheren games and I liked that they didn't change it dramatically. I give it 7/10 but its a strong 7.
  • Pros: Was a good add on to the previous two games
  • Cons: A bit repetitive, Can be frustrating at times
