    The new Partisan system and Theatre Interface are just a few good improvements this expansion has to offer. However, only few of the older problems get fixed and the extra options will only make it harder for a newcomer to get into Hearts of Iron III. Gamers that are familiar with the franchise will however be happy that the most realistic WWII game ever, just got a little bit better.

    As such, if you're not a hardcore turn based strategy buff, stay away.

    This is an end-of-life expansion for the HOI3 franchise. It adds some (minor) new features to the original, but does not do much to fix any major flaws. It is not worth 20 bucks to anybody but an HOI3 completist.

    Paradox continues the trend of downloadable...... content? In reality there is little new content, and is quite obviously a $20 patch. The game was riddled with bugs that rendered the game almost unplayable upon release. They have a niche market and are milking it dry by charging for patches disguised as an "expansion". It is infuriating that such a great game and developer has followed a rather new industry trend of releasing an unfinished game and charging for patches to complete it. That being said the game is the best ww2 rts there is, none even come close to its depth. You can easily sink 8 hours into this game and not even realize it, it is hands down top 5 for any serious RTS player. Full Review »

    Paradox keeps releasing expansions for HOI3 that dont add much apart from a couple of forgettable features and some fixes that belong in a patch. Semper Fi was decent (mainly due to the AI improvements) but this is just a joke. HOI3 is a great game when modded. There are modders that invest great deal of their time trying to fix what Paradox did wrong. And the problems with expansions is the modders have to start AGAIN from scratch (since they feel compelled to use the new expansion and discontinue the old one) which is a pity. I am still waiting for the release of my favourite mod, ICE for the motherland. And paradox will apparently release YET another empty expansion shortly.

    Please dont buy them, we should discourage them to stop this trend of releasing unfinished games and then releasing a bunch of so called expansions
