How many ways can you do a WW2 game? It's also a question I asked myself when Civilization 6 was announced. It turns out, they can just keep making it better, Hearts of Iron is the best iteration of the game yet. Some of the things I like about it:
- Production feels right. I create Air Wings, then say how big I want them. factories get to work. I create a division, orders are made, factories get to work. It's fun for me, at least.
- Details. Wars feel a lot more detailed, or at least the information is more readily available.
- Battleplans are fun to make.
