Taking you from 1936-64 you are able to play as any Nation in the WW2 era with detailed Economics, Diplomacy, Research, Intelligence and of course Warfare in the three branches of Land, Air and Sea. It Builds on the Experience and community Input of the previous successfully HOI Titles.
I don't know what the point of this is. Why am I supposed to buy it? Why did I waste my money when:
A: Hearts of Iron 2 on its own is stable, moddable, fun, and dynamic. It is an amazing base for over 250 mods on the paradox forums.
B: Arsenal of Democracy as a mod is completely fine and still updated now and then, about as much as this retail version is.
C: You're paying for a mod, meaning the 249 other mods for HoI2 will NOT work. Buying this is essentially gimping your own copy of HoI2.
So, you're paying $20 for a gimped version of the base game that is only compatible with AoD addons, and a slightly enhanced--and SLOOOOWWLLY--updated version of a free mod that is already out and highly acclaimed? Huh? Who thought this was a good idea? Its a $20 fan patch you can get for free.
I fail to see the point. HoI2 is a 10/10, this is a 5/10. Just, why?
