    Well, I haven't played HoI3 yet, but I'd probably buy HoI2 for now. From what I've heard, HoI3 is still very buggy, whereas I know HoI2 has everything worked out already. It's also a lot cheaper.

    HoI3 will be a great game, probably, but I'd say buy the older one for now and wait a few months for the newer game to be patched up.

    Definitely HoI2 for now. Ask again about HoI3 in about a year from now.

    Get Hearts of iron II Complete or ANthology, as the expansions are good to have.

    HOI:3!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just wait a month to get it. For then the new patch will be out, and most problems with it shall (hopefully) be fixed.

    I do love HOI:2, but the future is with 3 my friend....

    Two for now. It's cheap and great fun. Give III at least another month or so.

    I play HOI 2: Armageddon off and on. It is a very good game to start with. I say start with that to see if it "your thing"... It's not for everyone.

    I plan on getting HOI 3 in a few months. I need a new video card in my machine and am broke at the moment.

    You may have decided already but I vote HoI2. I bought it a few weeks ago, as a single dvd including both expansion packs, and it was only £12. A bargain for what you get, and it gives you the opportunity to decide whether that kind of game is to your tastes.

    HoI3 is a lot more expensive, and I'm sure you'd have to then buy expansions for that too when they are eventually released. Not to mention the bugginess of the current release and likelihood that you'd be patching it multiple times before you get the 'finished' product.
