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 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.

Summary: If you are having difficulties installing to Lion, go here: [...] Download the HOI 3 file, backup the original Hearts of Iron 3 executable wherever you installed it and copy this file in. Fixed. Should give seller a 1 star for not making this abundantly clear.

Summary: If you like this kind of game that is. I've played numberless hours of all the HOI games and must say that this is the best. I do have fond memories of HOI2 and it did take a bit to get used to the new concepts, but this is indeed much better game.

Summary: If you haven't played a grand strategy game before, don't buy this. If you are looking for a quick RTS or some other children's strategy game, don't buy this. If you are looking for the most complex, complete, historically and geographically accurate, fine-tuned, in-depth, and realistic Grand...
Summary: In terms of historical accuracy, immersion, and grand planning, this game is second to none. The Semper Fi expansion improves on the AI and supply issues that were present in the standalone game and adds several new features to the game.
