This review is from: Hearts of Iron 3 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
I bought this game yesterday and had been looking forward to it since it was announced. I've played and loved Hearts of Iron 2 and Doomsday and i could barely wait for the next installment. However, i'm sorry to say the game is a major let down. The graphics are terrible and the game is much slower than its predecessors. One of the things i loved about hearts of iron was actually seeing a tank represent a tank division and a soldier represent an infantry division. HOI 3 replaces this with boxes, and grey boxes at that. The visual appeal of the game has gone.
The gameplay has become far more difficult and complicated. I've put nearly 10 hours into this game and i don't feel like i've got anything out of, least of all enjoyment. I'm sending it back and going back to Doomsday.
