Hearts of Iron II reviews ( 5 )

This game gets a 10 to show that I don't have a special hatred of Paradox interactive. It's worth a 9, but we go to 10 to make the point. While this is NOT the best WWII game ever. It is possibly the best grand strategy WWII game. The best WWII game BY FAR is CCV (Invasion Normandy) modded version Gold Juno Sword, played versus a human opponent. HOI2 meanwhile is still a great game, and far more accessible, functional and user friendly than its bloated decendent HOI3. HOI2 has a far better balance of detail and playability. HOI2 has a much more accessible and enjoyable research system. HOI2 has such obviously useful tools as a way to find units by type, which inexplicably disappeared in the latest game. The only problem with this game is that it needs to be patched or modded with new graphics options so that it can scale properly on present-day monitors. Paradox should swallow their pride and stop making expansions for the HOI3 turkey until they have rebuilt and improved this older but far superior game. Reading the reviews its hard to stop laughing at how seriously Paradox fans take themselves. There is nothing hard, deep, or intellectually challenging about this game. It's easy. It's fun. And it was designed by guys who want to imagine that the Germans could have and should have won the war, which should be a hint as to which faction you want to choose if you want to enjoy yourself. Enjoy yourself. this is a great game. And unlike most Paradox strategy sausage machines you don't have to cheat to win.

This game blows all others out of the water. To be fully successful, you must master all aspects of the game. Force composition, support firepower and technology are a must before the battles ever start. Thank you for this game!

For those that want a World War 2 grand strategy game, look no further than this, or at least, look no further than the latest Armageddon version.Micromanagement set just right at the divisional level. A relatively simple tech tree and a diplomatic system that works just right.I always used to say that Civilization II was the best game I'd ever played, but I was wrong. It's this one and six years later I am still playing it almost every day.

Hearts of Iron 2 is more than just a game, its a simulation of events that have or may have happened during the history. The game features a very deep and engaging game play with high attention to details to historical events, people and places. Combat is more than just "kill everything that is not you", alliances are lasting, economics is is adequate and actually strategic planning on part of the player is needed to win. The game does have its flaws. One of which is the very steep learning curve as the tutorial was severely lacking in information. It might take you 2 to 3 restart of the campaign until you get the hang of it. Overall the game focuses more on it's gameplay rather than the graphics, it's fun and enjoyable to both gamers and history buffs. Mods are highly supported that has yielded extended game time and re-playability. I would highly recommend this game to people who like historical games but not to people who like fast paced and graphics based gamers.

The most intense, historically accurate and most complex strategy game ever created. Multiplayer games and the possibility to play as the leader of any WWII country(yes, even Paraguay or Luxemburg etc. who either got rammed completely/didn't take any part in the war) make the game even better. The reason for the rating 9 instead of 10 is the fact that towards the end of a game the massive amount of land, air and naval units will be tough for you computer and the game might get laggy. The other reason is that it has some minor glitches like naval fleets that don't really exist. Most of the glitches are very small and rare and can be fixed by saving and loading the game.
