They lost me at WWII, that part of history has been done to death in the video game industry.

This would rather it be another game set in the modern time? WW2 still has a lot of history we can & should explore. WW2 even has some great fictional stuff we could build games off of like the Foo Fighters and the Wonder Weapon. It would be different than most games today where its we must stop this terrorist and save NY.

I'm not saying it needs to be modern or futuristic, I just don't understand why developers go back to WWII, there are plenty of other war/time periods out there.

This is on a console?

If you've ever played any of the other Hearts of Iron games, they are great, but I would never! ever want to play one on a console.

Anyone else here thinking "R.U.S.E."?

Still play that sometimes.

I haven't played a WWII game for a while. This sounds like fun.
