Experience: 1 Week - 1 Month
If you've played Hearts of Iron, you know what you get here, I'm going to outline the main differences.
|» Pros|| |
-The Air and Naval forces are much better organized now, you can assign them a mission for as long as you want or till a condition is met.
-The World Market is gone and now you can trade directly to every country.
-The game doesn't have any serious bugs out of the box, as it happened with HoI.
-The research is more easily handled, with groups of research (like Ford, Messerchmitt...) with skills and a simpler technology tree. You get penalized for researching before the real time of the discovery.
-Land battle AI is much better, and now combats are in the frotiers, you can support the attacks from several fronts.
-Graphics are still poor, lack of sprites, 1 sprite for all planes, one for infantry, 1 for Tanks.
|» Cons|| |
-Air and Naval AI are still quite stupid.
-Diplomacy needs some rework, alliances are forever.
-technology tree way too simple, makes all units the same for every country (infratry '39, light improved tank...)
-Fixed resolution of 1024x768
It's overall a better game, but some thigs aren't an improvement.
