Hearts of Iron IV reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Now let's start with a review of my own And LEIDER I have to join the Negative Faction. The new Part of Hearts of Iron is ... A split personality. There are many Things that are positive, but at least as many Negatives. We do it Cuttingly: + The Research has been Reduced, and very many see the Negative ... I, on the other hand, positive, because now you don't need to throw on 800 Research, but can research the tanks directly and then the Subcategories (Tank Destroyers, etc.). + The Factory System is Good and also Thought out (in Part), there are Differences between civil/military factories and Shipyards. In the Civil you tinker all things together that cannot be used Offensively (Factories, Flaks, fortifications, Infrastructure, etc.), in the Military everything you can use on the Field or in air, in the Shipyards you craft your Navy together. So you have a better Eye on what is Being Produced. Now we get to the Negative:-THE AI ... Whoever has Thought this Out belongs beaten in my Eyes ... It is annoying that this Permanent is trying to land on your Coast ... It only stops when they have no Means of gaining Maritime Sovereignty ... Factions?: Yes, the Factions of these should be 3 ... Axis powers, Allies and Komis ... Funny the Fact as soon as 2 Factions against 1 together wage war the AI on it Sh * * * * whether their Agreement for the March have OR NOT! So it happens that the Soviet runs through Axis without Ifs or buts and Occupies areas FOR SICH TO which he would NOT have got ... Declaration war ... After all, at some point you have cancelled the Snout VOLL and just want to declare war on the Soviet ... Yes Pustkuchen ... Because your Axis Boys are also running through the Soviet Union ... And as long as one or the Other has his Troops in the Territory of the Other ... Is nix with War ... So virtually NEVER ...-The Trading System, you can call that with the best Will as you like ... But with Trade, there's nothing to Do with it ... Per 8 units of Resources you need to buy from wherever you need to squeeze 1 civilian Factory ... Nothing more with Money ... What also ... Cash is to be Eliminated and Factory Performance will probably also become a real Currency in the RL * Eye Roll *-Assignment in General ... I would have Liked to have subordinated the Air Force again To a General Who then uses it Flexibly and takes it with me again and again with me in the case of changed front running ... NO THIS time ... You do the Manual ... There is no Advantage in my Eyes if this time you have Waived it, every little Village is displayed on the Map ... The Air Force is now deployed via an Entire Region ... When the Front history changes ... Then one should have Taken Care of the Fact that one also changes the Targets of the Air Force. Because of the AI that really still needs a Revision ... For my Part, I can't make a Buy Recommendation. The Game is already Fun somewhere else I wouldn't already play it 83.5std ... But the Thoroughbred Heart of Iron will be Disappointed. Edit after another just under 180std: The AI is still K without I after Patches ... So it comes the Countries like Romania faithfully fight alongside the Germans (very laudable) but the Hungarians with 70! Divisions in Hungary squat, that's What Alliance Fidelity looks like. Since the War is already as Good as running, the Hungarian comes up with the Idea of leaving all Divisions to One, at a Moment when everything is Breaking in ... Super Ingo ... If you Play a different Nation than Germany, you must not manage to secure their Coasts with a Reputation as Germany and Italy do not manage to Secure ... although... Germany makes an Effort during Italy ... Well Italy .. Let's leave that ... If I had to describe briefly I would say: Did participating ... (More than Spectators in this Case) Have you Done it the lot then you can look At Germany with several Puppet States, all of which are at War, but the Word "Puppet" is quite true because these States do nothing. The only thing they do is secure their Coast (better as Italy) So you wage wars in these you could use troops very Well, but these are not Available because the K just doesn't get it in their Kilns without I's. Little Funfact: Played With Sweden and So watched the Allies alone and the Soviets with the Romanian AI (which is really ne AI) defeated the Soviets ... In a War, when I played probably the smallest Role as a Swede Due to my Strength of men, I Made the most Bite, while the German K without I allowed himself to be pushed back to Paris. I can't recommend this Game any Way I can't do that
