Much like Michael Corleone in The Godfather III, Avault's Jason Pitruzzello can’t escape WWII strategy games. No matter how much he struggles to get away, they keep pulling him back in. Paradox Interactive has released yet another expansion to Hearts of Iron 3. Adding even more content on top of the Semper Fi expansion. For the Motherland boasts a host of new mechanics, in addition to some specific battle scenarios that add tactical flavor to the game. And, true to its roots, it remains an in-depth strategy game that has enough micro-management to keep any grognard occupied, while having enough automation options to streamline the parts you don’t like.
