NOTE 1:
I think I clocked over 400 hours into this game but it was back in 2006 and before I joined Steam.

NOTE 2:
I'm well aware that this game has a great sequel (Hearts of Iron 3) and some people suggested I give it (Hearts of Iron 2) a thumbs down because of its age. In my opinion this is unfair. During its time, this was one of the most advanced grand strategy games around, thumbing it down because of its age is like denying that it ever existed. So why would you buy an older title? Don't know, its ultimately your money and your call. =)

TL:DR? See Conclusion

INTRODUCTION:
Hearts of Iron 2: Doomsday / Armageddon is a grand strategy political war game developed by the grand strategy masters from Paradox Development Studios and published by Paradox Interactive. Unlike its siblings (Europa Universalis, Victoria, Crusader Kings etc.) in this niche genre, the Hearts of Iron franchise covers a more modern timeline by covering the Second World War and the early parts of the Cold War (if playing the expansion Armageddon).

Players can take command of ANY of the 175 playable Nations and rewrite history as it unfolds. The game features major historical events, world situation and military leaders, and most importantly, historically accurate technologies and armies.

PROS:
+ The World Map is your playground
+ Historical Accuracy on leaders, events, technologies and provinces that allows players to...(see below)
+ Make their own alternate history
+ Very complex and in-depth economy and resource management system
+ Very complex and in-depth technology tree
+ Brutal difficulty levels
+ Extensive replayability (over 175 playable nations)
+ Easy to mod (specially if the player wants the historically accurate flag of 1936 Germany)

CONS:
- Resolution locked at 1024x768 (No HD support)
- Very steep learning curve
- Tutorial, though extensive, does not cover even half of the game's mechanics (you'll have to learn the other half through trial and error)
- Some historic events sometimes do not trigger properly
- AI can be dodgy
- Hotkeys can't be rebound (you can see a hotkey list from the manual)

CONCLUSION:
GREAT GAME if you're the type of player that likes long term strategic planning and don't mind occasional wars of attrition. The game features a historically accurate 1936-1964 world with appropriate nations, their technologies, economy and historic leaders. The empire management system is very detailed, in-depth and complex that may require some time to learn and master. The graphics of the game are very simple but the easy to install mods that are available will certainly improve your experience.

Grand Strategy games have a very niche audience and even among this audiences, each has their own preference of timeline. Some people like the Victorian age, Feudal Japan, Medieval Europe, Ancient Rome etc. Hearts of Iron 2 caters for those who like to play with the 20th century theme of World War 2 and the Cold War.

This game is best purchased when it is on SALE. Its easier to learn than Hearts of Iron 3 in my opinion and it makes for a good collectors item for Grand Strategy players.

Takes a while to understand, but once you grasp the basics, you become addicted. The possibilities are endless, allowing you to pick any nation during WW2 is a real plus. Wanna conquer China as Japan? Go Ahead! Wanna Invade California as Germany? Sure! Wanna conquer South America as Brazil, Go for it!

The AI still functions well, and the option to change the game speed from very slow to very fast really helps when you are waiting for units to finishing building so that you can continue your world domination. However, the graphics are outdated, and you may encounter some unexpected crashes. I am running Windows 7, and I have encountered a few crashes, so definitely make sure that autosave is on. Also, the multiplayer match making service is down permanently.

Overall, I highly recommend this game to anyone who is looking for a good WW2 Grand Strategy Game, but I recommend waiting until it goes on sale.

Top notch accounting simulation. Can you fill out enough spreadsheets to win the war for the Nazis? Will you requisition the wrong color tarp for your headquarters? Did you remember to leave an ice cube in the ambassador's tea?

Best world war 2 strategy game out there. Steep learning curve, but worth figuring out. Also still "gamy" enough to be not too challenging.

The Game is pretty awesome, after you learn how to play it. It took me some time (and the help of a friend), but if you look for a strategy game that can possibly go on for like 2 days, here you have it.

The only thing I don't really like is with steam. When starting the game per "Play"(I think its called that in english, I'm german) you can choose between the standard game without the Addons and the "real" complete version. Starting the game any other way always starts the standard game.

This game is an amazing stratagy game. Better than the third one in my opinion. It goes really in depth, like an advanced version of Axis & Allies. :)

For the best Hearts of Iron experience, play Darkest Hour. Still great, but not as great.

This game will immerse you in the realities of WWII-era politics in the ultimate "what-if" scenario game. Re-write history as it should have been and step into the shoes of 1930s and '40s commanders from almost any nation on the globe. This game may not be as pretty as Hearts of Iron III, but it gives a deeper sense to diplomacy than vanilla HoI 3 by including more diplomatic options and starting the game with historic treaties that will make you think before you act from the very beginning.

I love this game.

The gameplay is hard and innovative. I can't wait to jump face first into some of the options, which is amazing, because there are just so many options! I've played (unsuccessfully) as Sweden and Argentina. But the losing was amazing, to see exactly where the issues with my strategy were and how things can fall apart. Each loss (I've gone down hard twice as Sweden and thrice as the Argentine) has left me annoyed, but at myself rather than against the game itself.

A must have. The only things that get me down are a few technological issues given the age, mostly that I can't re-size it properly to my liking. It shows fine on my primary screen, but being unable to adjust the resolution means being unable to actually use my second screen and multitask properly. Despite this, I can't not give it at least two thumbs up. Intoxicatingly addictive.

Now, to conquer the world as Canada...
