Summary: It's a great game, and any History/strategy gamer will just love it.. And there are several superb mods for it too, in particular Hearts of Iron2: Doomsday Armageddon Fallout mod It's awesome.
Summary: It took me a long time to warm up to this game, due to its steep learning curve and complicated mechanics, but the sheer level of historical accuracy and depth kept bringing me back. Now I consider it the best strategy game ever designed. To call it an advanced game of Risk scarcely does it justice; no game, WW2-themed or otherwise, has so accurately emulated the actual conditions of war on this scale.
Summary: Like the most complicated game of Risk ever. Or just a really good RTS. None of the goofy rock-paper-scissors gameplay that many others have and the pausable real-time engine is a great idea for this type of game.
Summary: A very deep, very engrossing political war game that happens to let you research and build pretty much every WWII weapon from a partisan with a pitch fork to an atom bomb, with everything in between. That, and it's half the price of the original game! Unimpressive, utilitarian graphics and sound, and a debateably enjoyable soundtrack based loosely on martial music from war movies and classical music, are coupled with a very clever AI system and some very well-polished...
Excerpt: "...described as an ‘add-on’ to Hearts of Iron 2. But in fact it is a complete game – the actual modifications it made to HOI 2 were minimal, and you don’t need to own the first game to play this one.

A further small add-on, Armageddon, is available for download and only costs about £5. Hearts of ...
Excerpt: "Absolutely fantastic game. You have the chance to start in 1933, before the countdown to World War 2 (Reoccupation of the Rhineland). You can take over just about any country you can imagine; lead Brazil to a powerhouse status of the southern hemisphere, or lead Germany through the war making the same decisions along the way, or picking your own path. What is great about this game is the ability to research different technological advancements, from ...
Excerpt: Strategico a turni che ci fa vivere il periodo storico compreso tra la fine della Seconda Guerra Mondiale e l'inizio della Guerra Fredda, alla fine degli Anni Cinquanta. Come nei capitoli precedenti, ci troviamo al comando di una nazione e dobbiamo prend ...
Excerpt: Excelente. Sobre todo para aquellos que les guste la estrategia en estado puro, ya que en este juego no se dedica uno solo a atacar, atacar y atacar a ciegas, se deben tener en cuenta una infinidad de factores, climaticos, geograficos... Ademas es muy fiel historicamente (dentro de lo que se puede) y se puede utilizar cualquier pais de la época, teniendo cada uno de ellos sus ministros, generales, y tecnología.
Pros: Fidelidad histórica, diversidad de países, unidades, generales; jugabilidad
Cons: Quita mucho tiempo, a la larga un poco repetitivo
Excerpt: ...Ecco qui, a mio avviso, il miglior gioco di simulazione strategica su tabellone della seconda guerra mondiale. Aggiornato recentemente alla versione Hearts of Iron 2 Armageddon è il capolavoro per eccellenza della Paradox Interactive. Fin dalla sua versio ...
Pros: possibilità di vittoria anche per stati piccoli
