it's okay

  • Summary: I can only give this a 3. One annoying habit the designers have is that they can't just update or add new items to the game. They have to make substantial changes each time. While I appreciated the addition of amphibious assault craft, they knocked the US naval and strategic bombers techs back to 1918, but only after you now develop the pre-requisite techs.

My most played WWII game.

Disappointed buyer, Amazon
20 December 2014
  • Summary: Excellent game for gamers who like historical strategic games and WWII in particular. Level of detail is amazing but you can automate the parts you don't want to manage. You can play almost any country during this time period and have multiple choice from 1936-1941 on when to start. Diplomacy is a struggle (I rarely ever am able to get Romania and Finland to willing join the Axis and getting Axis countries to send expeditionary forces to Germany can only be done with an...

A complex masterpiece that truly shines with the community generated mods.

  • Summary: Most of the other reviewers have already covered the game play aspects (of which I mostly agree with all that has been said); this Review is from the perspective of someone who had paid full price of the initial (bug-ridden) release of HOI III *years* ago as well as HOI 2 (and Armageddon) as well as HOI 1. (0.7) - steep steep learning curve: lots of nuance and technique that can only be discovered through gameplay (as well as your style of gameplay).

Buy this on sale so you can play TFH

  • Summary: I purchased this HOI3 Collection in 2012 - gameplay deteriorated so much, too many crashes to desktop wasting hours of gameplay, and For The Motherland (the 3.xx branch) is no longer supported, that I can only recommend acquisition of this product to enable you to play Their Finest Hour (which is far more stable, and a five star review by me).
