I have Hearts of Iron 3. I bought some of the extras, but it crashes a lot, and sometimes the mods won't work. Common Weapons of WW2 I think I could never get to work correctly. Anyway, I bought it on sale when I bought it and got some value out of it. I played it fairly deeply into a campaign. Russia took over all of Europe after beating Germany, and I was gearing up as the USA to take them on. But, then I got bored after making some landing in Southern France.
I experienced many crashes also. The other day I installed a user made program that doubles the available memory for the exe and have not had any so far, although I haven't played much. HoI3 is decent. Not great imo but not horrible either. If they would streamline certain things while expanding others AND make it turn based, Id probably enjoy it more.
The concept very much interests me, especially how you can't research all techs, so you jhave to make a choice on how you're going to play.
