If you're going to get this game I highly recommend you get the collection since most of the features that make the game playable are not in the base game and the DLC is needed. Despite it needing DLC to feel playable to me, it's still one of my all time favourite games. Give it ago, but I'd recommend getting HOI4 now since it's much easier and better for new players.

A good followup to a great game


I love this game so much. HOI2 was better, I admit. But this one has a special place for me, and I'm not sure why. More options for historical changes. I've won against the SU in 1939, and had Europe conquered by 1940. I've used Italy to conquer France, and then turned on Germany. I've also had SU invade Poland and not stop until they hit Berlin. More options for organisation. When you get up to 300+ divisions, you'll be extremely grateful for the organisation options. From Theatres, to Army Groups, to Armies, to Corps, to Divisions, it makes it so much easier to control things. It does have a couple issues. The AI can be really stupid, and sometimes you'll do everything right, and plan everything right, and account for everything, and your troops will just break for no reason. Also, the game crashes. A lot. Expect it about 2-3 times per playthrough. Granted each playthrough is 20+ hours, easily. Overall, it wasn't as good as HOI2, but it made a lot of improvements, and is still a worthy member of a great franchise.

Excellent strategy


Another fantastic paradox strategy, this time based in WW2. If you like warfare strategy, you must own HoI3. And there's so much content for the game, the community is fantastic. You'll get it at a good price, I wouldn't suggest paying full price, wait for the sales.

A fantastic collection for World War 2 gamers


Hearts of Iron 3 is the most complex grand strategy game covering World War 2, and it's a great game if you take the time to learn it. You can play and control all aspects of any country in the world, and the game contains political, economic, and espionage systems. At its heart, though, Hearts of Iron is a wargame, and you'll spend most of your time building and directing your armies at an operational level. There's a ton of stuff to manage, and it can certainly be overwhelming at times. Luckily, the game allows you to delegate almost anything -- production, diplomacy, or even military operations -- to the AI, and it does a decent job. To actually learn the game, though, takes a lot of time and a willingness to read outside wikis/watch "Let's Play" videos. If you have the patience to learn it, you'll get a great wargaming experience. This collection gives you the base game, its first two expansions, and a handful of spritepacks. The spritepack DLCs are totally cosmetic and give you pretty units to look at -- they're an added bonus, but certainly not necessary to enjoy the game. It's the other stuff here that really gives you a great value in this collection. The base game itself is a solid title, but it feels unfinished and contains some bugs/enemy AI issues. Semper Fi and For the Motherland fix most of these issues while adding extra content -- Semper Fi gives you user-defined theatres, many UI fixes and additions that make it easier to manage your armies, and an additional start date. For the Motherland offers battle scenarios (which I love, as they're short, confined to a limited space on the map, and a ton of fun) and partisans behind enemy lines. This is a great pack if you're willing to put up with a high learning curve and a lot of micromanaging. Once the expansions are installed, the game is detailed, fun, and a great experience, and it's quite moddable, too. The only thing this collection is missing is the last expansion, Their Finest Hour. It helps to complete the HoI experience, so make sure to pick it up, as well!
