    HEARTS OF IRON

    This is a very good game that will match the thinkers of the gaming world for the MAC. Typically on PC's this is a long game. Success improves with practice. It is great to start with some of the easier campaigns (such as in a fictional WW2 War in South America).

    Once you get into this game watch out. It will require a lot of time but is a very good game assume that your cognitive process is in order.

    weird.

    This game has been out for months. I guess this must be the first time the boxed version is available here in the US, as opposed to the downloadable version I've had for a while.

    I was wondering why a friend of mine who wanted to buy it boxed was told he'd have to "pre-order" it. Now I know.

    Good game, though it is a tough learning curve. It REALLY helps to look at the wiki page, and to have grasp of actual history. Too easy to beat the AI though.
