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: Excellent game for those who love true historical strategy games. Play is from brigade to global level. Detail can be overwhelming and you have to play it a number of times before you get a complete feel for the game, but this is a game you will enjoy playing multiple times.
Summary: I have no idea what I am doing, the in game tutorial is horrible. I shouldn't have to do research on how to play a game, I want to love it but damn I do not have the time that I once did to sit down and really learn it.
Awesome game... but you must be patient and love history

Summary: This game is not for everybody. You must be very patient, since it takes a long time to learn how to play it, and you must also love history, WWII history that is. If you're not patient and you find history boring, stay away from it.
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.
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.
Summary: Niche games like this one usually ship with lots of bugs. Therefore, even though I was a big fan of HOI2, I waited until the first patch (1.1) came out before buying this game. That was obviously still too early.
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.
