Game recreates theater scale of World War II

Virtual Programming has released a Mac port of Paradox's Hearts of Iron III. The title is a traditional turn-based wargame, set in the years surrounding World War II. Players assume control of one of over 100 countries as they guide air, ground and sea troops across more than 15,000 individual territories.

Battle outcomes are decided by a number of factors, ranging from leaders and unit strengths to weather and logistics. Gamers can also engage in diplomacy, gaining an upper hand in some phases of the war. Online multiplayer is supported for an unspecified number of players. The game costs $40, and requires an Intel Mac with Mac OS X 10.5.8, 1.3GB of hard drive space and a 128MB video card.
