Can we, once and forever, dispense with the notion that Hearts of Iron - any version - is a wargame? It's not! It's a thinly veiled arcade game, and it's a really bad arcade game where the consistent results bear no resemblance to any historical possibility.
There are so many other worthy titles deserving of coverage that I can't understand Wargamer.com's obsession with one of the worst strategy games ever produced. How many years do they spend trying to "improve" each version? I don't know about you, but why would anyone pay for a game that they've never been able to get "right."
So please, drop this one from your list and move on to just about anything else! Thank you.
