ok, so i have decided to try and start playing the HOI series of games. The whole game concept intrigues me, and there are several alt history scenarios i have in my mind that i would like to try and play out. Anyways i tried the HOI 2 demo, and well that was a worthless piece of ****. That demo in no way at all helped me decide if i would buy that game, and whoever made it is a tard, but thats off topic. I also tried the HOI 3 demo, and it confirmed my fear, HOI 3 will NOT work on my pc for crap, so im limited to older HOI games.
Anyways i cant decide which one i should pick up. I really like the idea of darkest hour, because i can start back during WW1. However i read someplace on the paradox forum that darkest hour doesnt support casualty statistics and thats a major turn off for me. I guess however i would still be willing to pick darkest hour up if otherwise its the best in the series. The other game i am looking at is Arsenal of Democracy and it looks like it would be good, i just wish it had an earlier start date in it.
Anyways long story short which hearts of iron game (except 3) should i buy?
