Hearts of Iron
, the globe-spanning World War II strategy game from Paradox Interactive, is now available on Stardock's Impulse
. For $9.99, you can play any nation, taking the war effort to any front you want, though the theme built into the box dictates that it's focused on the driving Fascist, Communist, and Democratic powers of the day. The rest of the anthology is on its way to Impulse as well.
I've recently had a fruitless, instruction-manual-missing, bug-ridden, botched-tutorial-instructions, repeatedly-crash-to-desktop experience with Paradox Interactive's Europa Universalis 3 - Complete
, a game that runs on uncannily similar premises as Hearts of Iron
(except during the Medieval era), but with the latter being six years old, hopefully some of those bugs
(rather than hearts) are ironed out. Ten bucks on Impulse for the original Hearts of Iron
will also clue you in as to whether or not you'll want this fall's Hearts of Iron III
, since the overall guts of the game aren't changing much.
