American Conservatism is about the exercise of personal responsibility without state interference in the lives of the citizenry..... unless, of course, it involves using the bludgeon of state power to suppress things Conservatives do not like.

Too bad the rest of the game is terrible. :P

No, it's the standard 'needs a dozen updates and a few expansions to be viable' thing that Paradox has for it's games. Look at Stellaris for example, you wouldn't even THINK it was the game that came out if you saw it today.

The horribleness of the game is on a design level. The game seemingly can't decide if it wants to be a simulator, or just some WW2 arcade thing. It aims for both and misses. The USSR can be boiled down to "Build lots of troops/Assign to Tukhachevsky/Point at Berlin." Unless of course the front management forgets that Bulgaria was in the Axis too and ignores them, or they all get encircled, or they drive all of the tanks through mountains while leaving the mountain troops in the plains. Thankfully ongoing supplies weren't a thing, which I can only assume was done so halfwit wehraboos could play as Germany, build all of the tanks, and never have to worry about putting petrol in them.

I think the easy expansion model made possible through Steam has just made Paradox really fucking lazy. Why bother ever buying a game that needs x expansions to even be playable? It's like having a car with engine and wheels sold separately.
