Top notch accounting simulation. Can you fill out enough spreadsheets to win the war for the Nazis? Will you requisition the wrong color tarp for your headquarters? Did you remember to leave an ice cube in the ambassador's tea?

The Game is pretty awesome, after you learn how to play it. It took me some time (and the help of a friend), but if you look for a strategy game that can possibly go on for like 2 days, here you have it.

The only thing I don't really like is with steam. When starting the game per "Play"(I think its called that in english, I'm german) you can choose between the standard game without the Addons and the "real" complete version. Starting the game any other way always starts the standard game.

Best world war 2 strategy game out there. Steep learning curve, but worth figuring out. Also still "gamy" enough to be not too challenging.

This game will immerse you in the realities of WWII-era politics in the ultimate "what-if" scenario game. Re-write history as it should have been and step into the shoes of 1930s and '40s commanders from almost any nation on the globe. This game may not be as pretty as Hearts of Iron III, but it gives a deeper sense to diplomacy than vanilla HoI 3 by including more diplomatic options and starting the game with historic treaties that will make you think before you act from the very beginning.
