Finally WW I strategy for the fans

What started as a mere mod for Hearts of Iron II game, evolved into full release of grand strategy based in The Great War times! And what is more, you can enjoy the game up to Cold War times! This title is unique, mostly because of the period it is placed in. Not WW2, but WW1. You can enjoy close battles on western front between France + BEF versus the Germany, or if you prefer, see what's happening on eastern front. You can choose to play between many countries, that were somehow involved in WW1, and you can lead them where you want. The game is played on a world map. It's a Real-Time Strategy with active pause, meaning, that you can give orders while pausing the game. If you like to play strategy games, but never played any of Paradox strategies, you should deninitely try it. It's a steep learning curve, but once you get a hang on what's going on in the game, you will enjoy it very much.

Good, but could be more original

Finally it's on GMG! Good job! The game was original for the time when it came out, but there are alot of games these days who do those things better. But let's review the game when it came out. The gameplay is great, I haven't experienced any bugs. The controls are easy to learn, but sometimes a button doesn't work but this did get fixed after sometime. The music in the background is great. The game is replayable and you can play this game a thousand time and you won't find the same situation. The game is worth getting, I recommend picking it up on a sale though.

If you are a Hearts of Iron or grand strategy fan, you will love this. The game is basically a modded out version of the original, led by the Bulgarian Martin Ivanov (I am Bulgarian :D). Even if the game wasn't any good, I would buy it to support modders, and Bulgarian developers.
