But it cannot describe truly what happened in China during the war. In the game, there isnot Xi'an Incident, Chiang Keiz-shek always surrenders after several mounths from Marco Polo Bridge Incident. The CPC evev will not join the war! Mao Zedong and his the eighth route army and the fourth route army cannot do anything. The units of KMT are too less to fight against Japanese. A Chinese mod, Historical Memory, describes these truly. I hope these problems can be sloved in HOI4. Thanks.

This looks to me to be a very detailed extension to the original game. My interest is in the Far East, in particular Japan, but also China. However, it seems to me to be almost impossible to progress as Japan past the Marco Polo bridge incident. There are simply too many Chinese units from all allied nations, with defensive and indeed offensive capabilities that seem to me unlikely. Or the Japanese units simply are not strong enough for some reason. I played building the Japanese army on the basis of cheat codes to a phenomenal strength and even then it was not strong enough to beat the Chinese past Beiping. Playing as Nationalist China is equally as unrewarding, being easily beaten by far superior Japanese and allied forces (the Manchurian forces do very little when playing as Japan). So I think there is an Ai issue to be resolved in these cases.

Have to agree on this, only way I ever saw Japan win was putting their AI up a notch.
I even tried to supply them with 500IC and a hefty group of light and mountain infantry, but even with a substantial Expeditionary force from germany, not to mention complete blockade of china and constant terror bombing the progress was negligible. :/
