Hearts Of Iron 3: Semper Fi Reviewed

GameZone has published a new review of Hearts of Iron 3: Semper Fi. The first expansion for the World War II strategy game includes improved enemy AI and perks based on play style. GameZone gave Hearts of Iron III: Semper Fi a score of 7 out of 10.

From the review:

The selling points for the game include improved AI that acts more realistically and adaptive than before, hidden victory conditions, an in-game year’s worth of new missions and events, and a host of other smaller changes. The game’s AI is noticeably better than it was in the base game, and no longer does frustrating moves like unit stacking while still acting logically to the moves that you make. This makes playing the game a lot less frustrating while giving you an opportunity to actually exercise some strategy instead of reacting to the once cheap AI.
Another welcome addition grants you special perks depending on how you play. These effects basically give you specific boosts for your military based off of how you build it up. These upgrades will give you new units and special stat improvements according to your focus, which is a great element to add to the formula. There are even negative strategic effects, improving development in one area while making certain elements more difficult.
Semper Fi also brings on board changes to the interface, including the aesthetics that make commanding your operation much easier. A new system shows which of your headquarters are running certain parts of your operation, making the game much more intuitive and easy to play. This is another way that Semper Fi improves on one of the more frustrating elements of the base game.
