Could have been better

Hearts of Iron IV is a very fun and time-consuming game, with a lot of fun elements. It does have some AI problems where the AI makes some stupid mistakes, for example, I make a line and the AI sends my troops on the other side of the world to fill out the line. Overall fun, but wait for a sale.

very bad

I have been playing this saga since the first Hearts of Iron and although everyone has been having their faults and things to improve the trend was that with each new delivery will expand playable possibilities and allow greater micromanagement and personalization of your country. Thinking that Paradox would continue in that line, had not followed the development of this fourth delivery and when I bought it I expected to find a HOI 3 improved in all aspects and with greater possibilities .. Damn the hour ..

Hearts of Iron for a Broader Audience

I've played thousands of hours of Paradox games, particularly EU4 and CK2. HoI4 feels like a step closer to those games than its predecessors. A beautiful aesthetic and user-friendly interface sets it apart from HoI3, though there are faults in the AI and gameplay that leave it feeling more "gameified" and less of an accurate or realistic simulation. Hardcore fans will bemoan some of the simplifications, but there are also an number of quality of life and mechanical improvements. I've played almost 100 hours. I'm sure though that, like with EU4, time will improve both the mechanical complexity and my opinion of HOI4. If Paradox is known for anything, it's post-launch support.

Great Game

Amazing game, I heard people say hoi3 was better but I didn't know about Hearts of Iron games until this one, and this one is great! My only problem is the horrible A.I, but other than that it's an amazing game.

My favourite

This is a great title in the hearts of iron series vastly improving from 3 and offering hours of fun, one of the best and most accurate WW2 strategy games ever made.
