Simplified and improved

Interesting WW2 simulator; instead of focusing on intensive micro of multiple units your frontlines are managed by an AI, carrying out our orders. Improves on a lot of points compared to HoI 3, such as a new and simplified supply system, trading system, and economy. It lacks a bit of replayability though, you either play one of the great eight powers, which are unique, or you play a minor nation, which always ends up the same way.

The strategic historical nation global sandbox game

So this game is fun for the sheer fact that I can play as countries like Canada, Poland, or Iran starting in 1936, and then after a few years be the unchallenged ruler of the world... Or take out most major powers and just stop, or just develop one of those countries and forge my own faction with others. The game is something of a strategic operations level sandbox. Pick a country, develop, and take it where you want from there for as long as you want. No victory conditions, no objectives, just you and what you want to do. The ui is VASTLY improved from the last game, much more open and accessible for new players, and is actually quite helpful. Immediately informing you of issues with resources, production, and so on. And it always gives you the detailed information you need if you know where to look, which is easy to figure. The only real issue comes from learning the controls as you begin, learning about management of the armies and navies and air forces. But the learning curb isn't really steep and you'll have the basics down soon within your first play through or by your second. All in all, I recommend this game. Especially for people like me who are maybe looking for a break from more tactical "rts" fare and wanting to try something on the purely strategic level.

So much micro, so much fun!

This game is absolutely amazing, I have no complaints about it whatsoever! The soundtrack is amazing, and so is the gameplay. This is much more noob friendly than HoI3, and it's just as enjoyable as HoI3 when mastered! Great buy!
