Arsenal of Democracy

Game review - 1 agrees

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?
