Victory is at your fingertips! Your ability to lead your nation is your supreme weapon, the strategy game Hearts of Iron IV lets you take command of any nation in World War II; the most engaging conflict in world history.
From the heart of the battlefield to the command center, you will guide your nation to glory and wage war, negotiate or invade. You hold the power to tip the very balance of WWII.
It is time to show your ability as the greatest military leader in the world. Will you relive or change history? Will you change the fate of the world by achieving victory at all costs?
Hearts of Iron IV puts players in the boots of generals and supreme war leaders. Change history, and see what would have happened had things changed in what is surely one of this year’s most highly anticipated grand strategy games. I’m a sucker for alternate history, and I’m ready to see what’s going to unravel.

Straight to the point: It is fun. Does it have the same Problem as HoI 3 at the start? Yes and No. It has them, but they are less and at the time i wrote this Review, a good part of them are already fixed. Still, it has some, even 1 or 2 that can break games. Can, not must. From 10 games only 1 did have a Problem. What does it lack? - A hard coded hardcore gamemode yet. BlackIce want to change that. - Much of the content you got with TFH,FTM in HoI 3. Its really far from done, so you can feel that it lacks some features here and there. - Balancing (Minors at all are to strong in Vanilla atm in my opinion.) - Some more Statistics in my opinion. What does it have? - Fun. Not only as a Major, but as a Minor too. Especially with Mods that take care of Countrys that otherwise never got love. (Try Ireland, its fun and a challenge, if you not wanna be in the allies boat) - Mods. It has steam Workshop. And this is really important. The Industry, the techs, the National Focuses and so on. There are Mods for everyone! - The Feeling that it counts. You not just place a Division, you are now busy producing Tanks, Motorized, Arty, and Inf. Equipment just to get your Tank Division. Lets just say, it makes you happy when you finally start producing your Tiger Tanks. Watch some gameplays if you are unsure, in my opinion its totally worth it. (Also at the moment, the worst AI mistakes are taken care of, as far as i can see.)
While Hearts of Iron III was for the much more hardcore and extreme grand strategy gamer Hearts of Iron IV makes the game much simpler and adds a bunch of things as well as keeping the old awesome systems that we know and love. While it is not as flashy as the Total War series it still provides an exhilaration like none other and is so much fun to play with friends and even randoms. The dlc to come from paradox while it improves very much on the game it leaves people with just the base game kind of in the dark although there are a lot of mods for the game that are already out and many more mods that will be coming to this Awesome game!
Well this game is fun, I played around 70 hours of it by now and I've had a good time. I'm gonna start off with the problems with it. One of the biggest problems is how easy it is, the AI is overall quite dumb. Now this will definitely improve over time but even if you go on highest difficulty, those are just nerfs to you and the AI will still be dumb. Another one is a perfomance issue and that definitely shows during the late game, when the majors like USA and Soviets start doing a lot of stuff the game bogs down. Even in 1942. There are many other problems but these are the major ones. But this game is very good and very fun. Paradox will patch the crap out this game and it's gonna be amazing. It's a shame that you might need to get DLC's to make this game better but still i fully recommend this game. Multiplayer is really good as well. I gave it an 80 just because that's what it deserves. Giving it more isn't fair to other games with 90's that are much more polished.
Hearts of Iron IV is finally here. As usual with Paradox, this is a very deep strategy game. You can play any country and turn the tides of war. It's intense and very well crafted with brilliant user interface. Don't expect a flashy presentation. The games from Paradox are not about huge armies with detailed animations like in the Total War series. Hearts of Iron IV will show you maps and numbers most of the time but that's ok because you're not distracted by anything. It's an awesome game. Don't miss it.
