    Getting a ton of enjoyment out of this game. I was disappointed with the lack of depth offered in Civ V and had someone recommend I check out Hearts of Iron. The learning curve is very steep (Took me about 4-5 Hours before I was able to feel like I had any control) however once you figure out the basics you're in for a treat. This game is a micro-managers dream come true.

    Provided me with many hours of entertainment, no strategy game out there even compares to the complexity and detail of HOI 3 SF. More than happy to pay for this 'patch' as long as it lets the developers continue providing great games.

    Hearts of Iron III: Semper Fi is a nice add-on for a very complicated game.

    Semper Fi brings HoI III on the right track, but due to lack of playful increments, it is more of a big patch than a true Add-On.
  3. How do you expand a game that already has everything? In this case, by trying to fix its problems. Unfortunately, it looks like HOI3's issues go deeper than a patch can address. Like a true marine, Semper Fi got a thankless job.
