Darkest Hour is one of the few mods for Red Orchestra Ostfront that succeeded well and did a great job and capturing the Western Front as it was.

I'd like to start off by saying that I've played DH since about 2009, that was the first time I got on. And back then, this game was more populated than it is today. Needless to say, DH is not dead no matter what people tell you. DH has always been low populated in terms of community and that is what made it special, a small but very tight knit community. Even back then people would fearmonger and go all "DH is dead/dying" etc.

If you are living in and around Europe, then past 7PM and later during the day you can play this game. An estimated number of 55 - 64 players will be on the server (29th Infantry Division one) which is the most populated. So you can play this game every day and have fun.

Darkest Hour is not for everyone, the maps are rather large, there are many vehicle and class types and it has quite realistic gameplay. Communications are always preferred, through microphone or general team chat. The community in general is friendly as long as you work with your team and don't behave like an a-hole.

And finally I'd like to add that DH is NOT abandoned, it is being updated actively and worked on still.

Darkest Hour is just an AWESOME mod for Red Orchestra!! In this mod you can play as a tank comander in WW2. You can play in a tank alone or with some friends. And there are MANY great maps which are based on real WW2 maps(And they are big!!). There are even more different tanks most of all on the "Real Panzer" server. There are...

... for GERMANY: Tiger 2; Panzer4 f1, h, j; Panzer 3 j,n,l; Panzer 2f; Brumbär; Nashorn; Sturer Emil; Tiger 1 E; Jagdpanzer 4/70,4/43; Jagdpanther; Elefant; Flakpanzer 4 wirbelwind; Pz. Sfl IVc; Puma; SDKFZ 251 and even more...

...for the SOVIET UNION: T-34 1942; T34-85; ISU 152; Su 100; Su 85, IS 2 1945; IS 1942; IS 1; KV2; t-70 and many more...

...for the USA: M4A1; M4A2; M4A3 105 HVSS; M4A3E8; M4A3E2; M5 Stuart; Greyhound; M10 ; M36; Hellcat and more...

...For GREAT BRITAIN: Matilda; Valentine; M3A1 Stuart; Cromwell; Sherman Firefly; M10 Achilles; and many more...

And of course this is for PVP with up to 20 vs. 20 players. 1 match takes min. 1 hour and the goal is to capture more strategic points than the enemie. And when you die you simply respawn and take the next tank ( they spawn after some time again in the garage/spawn so there are always enaugh) you want. And you must not even play as a tanker, you can also play Sniper, AT-soldier...There is also an ingame-chat and voice-chat so you do not need things like teamspeak. Its just great and the right game for every one who is interested in WW2 or in tanks!!

The game is great but the community is dead and/or mostly autistic 16 year olds/30 year olds who role play or some stupid ♥♥♥♥ like that. For example I joined a server that had 10 players (the only one with players on it) and I was constantly told to leave over and over and even kicked for no reason they also all had some clan tag thing in their name. And on top of all that from time to time you may be behind a tree or some heavy foliage and all of a sudden dead from out of nowhere and this isn't "the enemy is behind or to the side of you" they shoot spot on through everything and know exactly where you are sometimes and don't even get me started on the tanks; people only ever play the tank crewman there's no combat, no skill, no teamwork just people sitting in tanks doing nothing. On the plus side however there is ususally a highly populated server (around 40 players) where people actually play the game which are from time to time pretty one sided.

This is an absolute delight to play!

If you wanna play COD style and just run into things quickly, YOU CAN DO IT!

If you wanna play it slow and sneak up on the enemy relaxed, YOU CAN DO IT!

- Of course if there is no incoming artillery fire..

December, 1944. - Belgium, Lutremange.

It was snowy, me and my buddies were in a forest. On our way to occupty a lumber camp, that wasn't too far from our FOB. We walked through the forest, completely aware of our surroundings, with our hands and butts freezing cause it was too cold. It was quiet for a moment, until suddenly we get ambushed by Germans.

Me and the guys dig in quick as possible, our pointman screams out "RETURN FIRE!". We clash in a lenghty firefight, until the Germans had gotten the upper hand with an MG-42.

We were being suppressed and we knew that we had to retreat back to our FOB, we were all shaken and scattered around the forest. A few guys tried to retreat back but were shot down by the MG-42 before they could even stand up and run.

One of the guys in patrol who was next to me popped a smoke infront of the Germans POV so they couldn't see us, he then grabbed me and said "Come on, we gotta move!". We tried running back to FOB, under heavy fire from MG's and rifles, we ran and ran, we were tired and exhausted. I took a hit on my foot causing me to trip and fall down onto the ground. The guy behind me tried to get me up before he took a fatal hit to the chest. I continued my retreat towards the FOB, a few minutes later, I found myself wandering in the forest, alone, no weapon, no ammo pouches.

Until a German popped up infront of me, he aims his rifle at me, but doesn't shoot. We both looked at eachother, I stood infront of him unarmed and he was infront of me with his rifle aimed at me. From the look of his face, I could tell that he was afraid, confused and tired, just a normal human being sent out to fight.

I take one step forward and *BOOM* I fell on the ground, bleeding out and slowly losing breath as I watch the snow cover my body...


Pro's.
(Things might get updated here)
- Good looking HD textures, don't expect to much though, this isn't a game from 2014.
- A good community.
- Long or short but also realistic battles.
- Almost realistic Wounding System E.g. some bullets doesn't end your life, leaving you badly wounded. If shot on the leg, you will be come unable to run for a few minutes.
- HUD isn't bad, just a simple weapon info, character info, compass and then your friendly map to help you navigate.
- Immersive combat and good looking weapons.
- Practice mode for newbies.
- Different classes with different guns and special equipment on the battlefield, E.g. Bazooka's, STG-44's, Radio Operator, Mortar Operator. etc, etc.
- Maps are well designed and look good.
- Tanks are also well designed, the best looking tank is probably the Tiger.
- Different factions for each country E.g. Paratroopers, 2nd Rangers, 29th ID, Fallshirmjagers, etc. etc.
- Game is trying to resemble tactical and realistic combat gameplay, so Communication and Teamwork helps to achieve victory on the battlefield.

Con's
- Only one active server which is mostly active on EU time, sometimes US players get on.
- Game can be frustrating and hard for new players.
- A few maps are buggy.
- Lag spikes, doesn't happen often though.
- Bots are stupid, literally stupid and don't function well in Practice mode.
- Animations can sometimes glitch, when running or doing other things. But it doesn't happen a lot.
- Some maps can be a slaughter fest for attackers or defenders.
- Some maps are very hard for the attacking team.
- Only three'ish countries, the Commonwealth (Britain and Canada), the US and Germany.
- Voice acting isn't the best.

This is a good and fun mod to play and maybe one of the best mods/games to resemble World War 2 combat in the Western front.

Do not buy this game!

It used to be really great, but now it is just a place where old veterans making their own war. where all newcomers are unwelcome.
Servers are usually empty, and even if you get 20-30 people on the server, they will vote for some strange maps which remind counter strike and unreal turnament maps, or a giand combined arms maps, where the only infantry is you. Other players will just spam tanks and shoot each other ignoring any objectives.
Another problem is that many players (and you can se it on Youtube) change their config.ini file the way that they can see enemy anywhere even behind the cover.
Originally it was not easy to aim in this game, but yet you can see other "veterans" just shoot from the hip while running and score headshots hundreds meters away.
Most of the maps turns into duel between tanks, or tank and AT soldiers, while other classes are just targets.
And again its very hard to play when enemy seems to always know exactly where you are regardless of how well you hide. At the moment you make your first shot all enemies on the map just point right at you and kill from the first shot. Like if you play against the AI which ignore any line of sight rules.

If you are really interested in this kind of games play Red Orhestra 2 or Verdun, or Sqad.

Must have for the hardcore fps gamer. If you like COD, you will hate this. This game is absolutely not forgiving! Super intense gameplay never seen in modern games. Here you will crawl and hide for enemy machinegun fire. You will hide for enemy tanks, you can hear in the far distance. The sounds are heavy and epic. Aiming is difficult something I like very much, it creates intense firefights. Lot's of maps to play and big. Work together else you won't make it.

Really good game. If you are a graphic geek, this is probably not for you. Gameplay is really good, really realistic, and there are no COD 12yr olds that call you names. This is strategic ww2 action game.
So. Should you consider getting this? YES.
Will you have fun playing this game? Not on all maps, but mostly,YES.
Server activity? Well, if you play during school times and all, there should be few people in servers, but in evening, they are full.
BOTTOM LINE:
This game is fun, physically somewhat accurate, you need to develop a skill, and a nice community:)
Go for it, get it:)

Für alle Freunde von 2WW Shootern die es authenthisch mögen absolut empfehelenswert!!!

Hier muss die Truppe wirklich taktisch zusammenarbeiten, sonst bekommt man einen auf den Deckel.
Leute die mehr Wert auf Grafik legen als auf Spielinhalt, müssen allerdings Abstriche machen.... da die Engine über ein Jahrzehnt auf dem Buckel hat ;-)

Play as stormtrooper
Sit in trench clutching my stg44 as we come under artillery and tank fire
Watch all my comrades get killed while we defend the trench
About to get overrun
Get shot in both legs retreating
Somehow manage to make it to safety
Game ends and I go to the kitchen to get a drink
Kitchen door slams shut, giving me a PTSD episode

A massive new update (6.0) has just arrived on Steam and it’s pretty damn great. The changelogis 17 pages long.

Some of my favorite gameplay changes:

— 90 FOV, finally!

— A completely reworked spawn system. It combines the best elements from spawn mechanics of Ostfront and RO2. You can select a spawn point by just clicking on it on the map screen. And this applies to MDVs: half-tracks show up on the map as spawn points.

— You can select the tank you want to ride from the list and spawn right in it. You don’t have to rush to the tank as soon as you spawn and then deal with a crew of random players who made it to this particular vehicle first. No more waiting for tanks to appear or for the annoying “Waiting for additional crew members” message to disappear. But you can still spawn as a crewman on foot and join someone else’s crew.

— Reworked stamina system and gunplay. You can sprint for longer, but changing stance drains your stamina. So doing the “whack-a-mole” thing by popping out of cover for a quick shot and immediately ducking again will tire you out. Dolphin diving — even more so. And it’s much harder to shoot when you’re out of breath: your weapon starts to sway.

— All vehicles now have rider positions.

— Improved hitbox detection on exposed operators of vehicles. E.g. I think you can now shoot everyone riding in a half-track as long as you can get an angle.

— Ammunition is now included in weapon drops, instead of being in a separate pouch. A downgrade in terms of realism, but these were really tricky to pick up.

— Wire-cutters and barbed wire that actually stops infantry, just like in Carpathian Crosses.

— You can drop and pick up binoculars.

— Windows users now run a modified RedOrchestra.exe that is “large address aware”; this eliminates crashes to desktop caused by the engine running out of memory.

And in general, the game looks and feels a lot more polished now. There’s a gazillion of little fixes and visual improvements. I can only hope that someone will update some of the old custom maps to be compatible with the new patch. And the Darkest Orchestra mod.

I haven't got many hours in the game, but after a friend bought me the normal game and told me to get this, I decided to play along weith him. I found it quite fun, you get to drive tanks, drive pink jeep's and if you're on certain servers you can also drive tractors. So I became the farmer, who peacefully captured points in a tractor and rode the fields of glory (and wheat)

Holds breath, lightly tickles the trigger, and relieves an enemy of their misery.

Verdict: Must find more potatoes to throw!

Darkest Hour is by far the best tactical WW2 shooter I've ever played. Nothing comes close to the intense infantry, combined arms, and tank game play. The realism and sheer imersion makes this game like no other. 6 years later I still love playing this game.

By far my favorite WW2 FPS. Better than COD, BF, RO2, etc.

held off a good 32 americans with an MG-34 (frick off 42) on the whole left flank of a map

played with jagdtiger moving up periodically and clearing out building from afar as we germans advanced into a forest full of clueless spawning americans that soon got the hint and hit the dirt in large grass, making our advance slow to a seek-and-destroy mission, more like, and we got into the objective (was town), and that's when those damn garands

those damn garands

did us in

6.0 is good!

game is good!

too bad I don't rate for fear of being judged!

Pros
= Its a WW2 FPS
= Its a free mod

Cons

Have you ever watched the master piece Bands of Brothers? Well many maps looks alot like many places in the serie. Why? Well because those places were real, so they made them. You can't run across the map, You can't be Rambo. This is WW2
