  • Summary: Pros: The World War II scenarios are fun at first; the graphics look much better than Hearts of Iron II: Armageddon when the game isn't stuttering into a low frame-rate oblivion. Cons: Worse music than Hearts of Iron II: Armageddon; the AI for the game is quite dumb, very much worse than it was in Hearts of Iron II; game has a much reduced scope from Hearts of Iron II: Armageddon; idiotic "neutrality system"; super-long loading screens; a huge amount of problems with...

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).

The Most Brilliant WW2 Game in Existence...Just Avoid Customer Service

Thomas Morrow, Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: I am a returning user. I used to play this game five years ago when it was had only been around a year or two. It used to be horrific. Crashes galore, patches on a weekly basis and the game itself was lame. The AI was a breeze to beat (Paradox used to brag about having a user who conquered the world as Hungary...indicative of how weak the AI was) and the game's mechanics did strange things (see below).

Buyer beware

Christopher Hoggard, Amazon
26 June 2014
  • Summary: Downloaded it, and it would not' run. Checked all sites I could find for fixes, and found not one worked for me. This is the second product from this company with similar issues. At least on the first one I could find a fix. Based on this purchase, I would be severely discouraged from buying any product they make from this point forward... Its not like this is a new game, its been out for years, and people have been complaining about it, even recently.

Not for the casual gamer

Randall J. Knox, Amazon
10 June 2014
  • Summary: The downloader didn't even work on my computer. 2/10 would not buy again. I ended up buying it on Steam. Also it's the most complicated game I've ever played in my life.

Not your average strategy game ...

Josh S., Amazon
26 April 2014
  • Summary: This is easily one of the most complex Real Time Strategy (RTS) games out there. Historical accuracy is combined with an amazing level of detail; you can control virtually every aspect of your country; politics, education, industry and tech. Combat sequences are more strategic than tactical. I love this kind of thing, but it's definitely not for everyone. If you're looking for explosions and excitement, try something else.

Fantastic time killer!

deerduke, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros : Great attention to detail, keeps you riveted to the screen. Cons: uses a lot of computer resources, you should have a good amount of RAM, a great CPU, and an above average video card.
