À propos de ce jeu

The First World War ushered in the beginning of a new age. On battlefields across the globe, the remaining vestiges of the 19th Century were gruesomely attritted away as the introduction of new weapons favored defensive strategies that lead to massive casualties in futile attacks on fortified lines. Whole Nations mobilized as the citizenry became integral to the war effort, churning out the supplies necessary to keep their soldiers fighting and dying. This was total war and the national suffering seeded movements bent on rebellion and revolution.

Making History: The Great War offers a game filled with historical events and challenges of the WW1 era. Playing as the Head of State, you are responsible for managing all facets of your nation's economy, diplomacy and military. Your actions will influence world events as you lead your armies in the most in-depth WWI grand strategy game ever made.



  • Play as any independent nation during the World War 1 era.

  • Choose how best to control your conquests: colonies, protectorates or puppet states.

  • Build trenches to grind down attacking forces.

  • Soften up your enemies defenses with adjacent region Artillery bombardments.

  • Bomb with Airships and BiPlanes, counter with Fighters and Anti-Air units.

  • Control the seas and the lines of supply by waging Unrestricted Submarine Warfare, sinking both naval and trade vessels.

  • Buy and sell in a global economy, trade for vital resources or manufactured goods.

  • Expand your sphere of influence using foreign aid to increase ties with other nations.

  • A sophisticated economic system designed to simulate the inter-dependency of technology, industry and war. You must produce the munitions to fire your big guns and food to feed your people.

  • Employ government spending to keep the populations from radicalizing towards rebellion and ultimately, national collapse.

  • Over 275 different nationalities represented, many with unique model sets.

  • Hundreds of unit models representing the historic weapons of the period.

  • Create customized scenarios with our detailed editor. Share your mods on Steam Workshop.

Realistic Turn based strategy game with an economy system that keeps you engaged even as a minor nation not at war. This game is very in depth but that helps to bring you into feeling how the nation really felt at the time.

downside however, the in game tutorial will not show you everything you will need to know. (ie how to retreat, or what is needed to manufacture advance materials.) but there is a codex in game and youtube videos that can help.

I love the concept of this game. The ability to use combined arms. I spent many hours playing this game. Trying to change history and Have the central powers of Europe come on top. The gas attacks. I love it. Most games of this type are usually the same. You simply move all your units to one province and let them have at it. But this game concept allowed artillery pieces to remain in adjacent provinces and rain death upon the battlefield. This was my favorite part of the game. The game actually built a realistic WW 1 battle strategy game. It is a pure slug fest of vast numbers of casualties. You can\'t simply overwhelm a province or run throught it and the battle for europe is done in so much time. The amount of resources and men needed to take a province that is well defended is quite staggering.

No other strategy game I have played has better simulated trench warfare on a massive scale than this one. I have had a lot of fun with this game.

For the negative part of the game. Theyre are some very critcal flaws. No matter how much fun and enjoyment ive had with this game. You simply can\'t recommend a game that has some severe problems. But if you want to enjoy some serious simulated trench warfare. The game is very available. Just do not have any grand visions of conquering the whole of europe.

Eventually the game will become unplayable. I have never finished a game before the game breaking flaws come in. Its a real shame that it is severly unpolished. Initialy the game will run smooth enough but due to the continued numbers of troops. The game simply breaks.

If these critcal flaws could have been addressed. This game could have been one of the best simulated strategy games of its kind.

Currently played through two full (serious) games as Columbia and Serbia and a partial German Campaign.
I got this game cheap in a humble bundle.
PC specs: Win 10, GTX 980, Intel Core i7-6700K, 16 GB RAM.

Summary:
An ok strategy to waste some time in if you're a World War One history buff and a grand strategy fan. Unfortunatly poor AI and performance make for a marred experiance. I'd recommend only picking this up when it's cheap and to not expect much out of it.

Pros:
-WW1 time setting. I'm a sucker for this time period.
-Managing troops deployment is hugely important as are deciding what fronts to attack on and where to defend.
-The arms and manpower resources provide interesting dynamics.
-Excellent early/mid game.
-Managment of the economy, infrastructure, trade routes, resources and populace happiness increases the depths of the strategy required.
-Diplomacy has a significant impact and is very dynamic.
-Good trading system with managment of trade routes important.
-Good soundtrack, if not a bit short.

Cons:
-Poor tutorial. Reading the PDF manual is a MUST and even then some mechanics are poorly explained.
-Performance is pretty bad. Frequent crashes due to 'running out of memory' including wiping out 8 hours of my German campaign. Changing map overviews or moving large distances often requires alt-tabbing for it to display correctly.
-Relatively poor AI. Defense is much stronger than an offense, as in real world WW1, however the AI does not seem to know this. The AI also does silly things like not supporting their troops with artillary, fighting completely unwinnable offensives, not reacting to artillary/air raids/sea barrages. These allow for OP strategies, hence why Serbia was able to defeat the Balkan states, Austria-Hungary and Germany.
-AI refuses to surrender despite having no chance of winning a war, even on surrendering on 'pre-war' conditions.
-AI allies largely only provide milltary support. Could be improved if they provided resources such as America did irl.
-Joining an alliance is quite difficult. The impact of 'an enemy of my enemy is my friend' is not as great as it should be.
-Huge amounts of artillary or bombers are overpowered.
-AI does not mind or react if you're building ridiculous amounts of troops or piling them on your border.
-Conquered regions are generally pretty happy and do not require as big of a military presence as I would like. This means if you break through the enemies line you can steam roll through their nation.
-Late game can become a bit stale.
-Populace happiness does not have as big of an impact as I'd like. If a population has been starving for months they should have a bigger impact then the occasional protest. This is easily demontrated by the fact that I've never seen the Russian revolution succeed. Likewise you can basically ignore your money resource if you want to while at war.
-Colonies do not provide as much of a buff to the nation state as I'd like. They seem to have terrible incomes and produce little to no resources.
-Score only reflects absolute worldpower, would be nice to have a before/after when not playing great powers.

MH The great war is unplayable. You can sit and build all day long, compile ALL your armies into one massive army, bomb france, or russia, or even Austria/Hungary, it doesn't matter, you CANNOT defeat the first army battle. My force was over 300 attack points in each scenario and I could not defeat an army of 100 defense points. The battle will last SO LONG that the enemy replenishes its hit points at 3:1 of your attack points. Then there is the single-army scatter plan of the AI. I quickly learned to also put 5 armies on every territory I owned, and then attacked with 300 point army. My army was bogged for the entire game never won its battle (including I was bombing the enemy with 30+ artilliary), yet the enemy would bomb my territores with 5 troops with their 2-5 artilliary. within a few turns my troops would be gone even if I replenished them fast as I could, and the enemy would walk in with ONE troop and defeat me. The only area that seems to function properly is the ships. 100 point ships against brittish or french 50 points, you will eventually win in about 3 turns. UNPLAYABLE and FRUSTRATING. (BTW, I am playing on level 5 only, not even "difficult"). I've played both German (above) and Austrian. The A/H army has the SAME problem with Serbia. I attacked Serbia with 300 points and took me the entire game to win TWO territories, meanwhile the Ottoman's took the other 4 territories with only about 5 total troops. UNPLAYABLE.

Un bon jeu sur la première guerre mondiale de type "grand strategy", aux multiples paramètres à découvrir. Côté réalisation, c'est un peu daté, mais tient la route. Les musiques sont vraiment à revoir par contre... Côté gameplay, c'est solide mais parfois obscur, il faut tenter des choses pour comprendre certains aspects. Le plaisir de la découverte :)

Plutôt réservé aux fans du genre cependant.

Vous pouvez découvrir le jeu plus en profondeur dans cette vidéo (une prochaine suivra pour montrer plus de gameplay) :

Au début ça a l'air super! Mais ensuite tu es perdu, l'IA est pas top, la diplomacie est infiniment plus nul que celle de EU4, le jeu est complexe pour pas grand chose.
Le problème c'est qu'il y a la complexité de EU4 (ce qui est bien même si là c'est très peu clair et il n'y a pas de wiki précis si ce n'est le GDD du jeu) mais avec le système de tour par tour des Total War, ce qui je trouve ne va pas du tout ensemble.
Mais pour moi le plus gros point noir c'est que ce jeu me donne l'impression qu'il n'est pas fini du tout: launcher moche et buggé, traduction partielle et mal faite (même si l'anglais n'est pas un problème), des crash, ect... Et même l'ancien Making History est comme ça (en 2007 on sait quand même terminer un jeu convenablement).
La bande son est réduite et c'est toujours les mêmes musiques, et à force ça saoul.

C'est dommage parce que malgré tous ces défauts j'ai insisté, je voulais vraiment jouer au jeu parce qu'il y en a pas vraiment d'autre comme ça sur cette période de l'histoire... Mais après un N ième crash j'en pouvais plus.

Voila le jeu est bien en soit mais très mal développé et l'idée mal exploité... Dommage
PS: et payer 30€ pour avoir ça... c'est pas cool :'(

Comparés à des jeux comme Victoria 2 (qui certes n'est pas centré sur la 1ère guerre mondiale), je ne peux pas considérer ce jeu comme une bonne affaire. Déjà oublié la langue Française dans ce jeu, ils ont chié un grand coup dessus.
Après 8h de jeu en anglais dessus le verdict est simple: il ne tient pas la route face à la concurrence. Règles de combats mal branlé, politique totalement nullissime, ect...
Je vous le déconseille fortement même la partie encyclopédie est un foutage de gueule.

This game isn't terrible, but it has a few problems that makes it a terrible Great War simulator. Here is the run-down:

1. Allied forces are HEAVILY favored. What do I mean by that? Simple, all the units on the different sides of the conflict are equivalent. A German infantry is equal to that of a French or Russian infantry. The German military was the best trained, the best equipped, and the best supported army in the conflict. Some would even put this military on par with the greatest militaries of all time. Russia, on the other hand, was supposed to be slow to mobilize and ill-equipped. I played a game where AI Russia was in Berlin before the end of 1914. Because the units are equal in strength, the Allies, with huge size advantages, will likely always win.

2. Serbia is too weak. Historically, Serbia lasted a surprisingly long time. In this game, Serbia doesn't have even close to enough resources to supply its comparatively huge military. Austria-Hungary rolls them up as a matter of course, because the Serbians starve to death and run out of guns.

3. Belgium is too strong. I played a game where Belgium completely repelled Germany (one of the greatest militaries in history), and even took ground in Germany.

4. The Allied forces start with Great Britain already involved. GB wasn't keen on getting in on this war, and only planned on doing so if Belgium's neutrality was violated. GB also only had the expeditionary forces on hand to wage a land war, in this game they seem to have a pretty healthy army from the start.

5. Austria-Hungary is too good. The Great War is the tale about how Austria-Hungary constantly did the exact opposite of what Germany wanted, and as a result, they were getting pummelled by everyone, including the Kingdom of Serbia. The only force AH knows how to fight is Italy, which leads to the next point:

6. Italy is too strong. Historically, Italy failed to take the exact same river 9+ times against Austria. In this game, it's only a little harder than taking any other position.

I'm sure there are other problems, but let's move on to mechanics:

1. The Great War was insane. Battles went no where, and the defenders always had the advantage. Hence, both sides would put up trenches, and fortify, fortify, fortify. Attacks were suicidal. This game doesn't do trench warfare well because the units and regions are too large. These trenches were separated by only a few hundred yards, loaded with barbed wire, and supervised by machine guns and artillery. Units would stand at a stalemate for months at a time, with no progress being made, constantly under a hail of shells. In this game, you have to commit massive armies to an attack, and the attack lasts until one side loses. Smaller units or smaller regions would help solve this issue.

2. You can always see all the units of the enemy. Observation planes and observation balloons only give your artillery bonuses to hit (which they need, because they can barely ever hit). This is not a good feature for a game where air superiority meant you knew where your enemey was, and they didn't know where you were.

3. Big, important advances (such as metal helmets) aren't commented on in the game. You also can't upgrade units (as far as I can tell), which makes no sense, considering the only different based on technology would be equipment. Upgrading a units defense by giving them helmets sounds pretty easy to me.

4. Diplomacy is difficult to achieve, because it takes place over lengthy, incremental time periods. Far longer than the scope of the game. I tried playing the US in the 1912 campaign start, with the goal making a Western Hemisphere alliance, but for some reason only Nicaragua was interested. I offered aid to many countries, and every couple of turns, they cancel the aid (why give up free money, I ask). The AI just sells you stuff until they run out of stuff, and they buy stuff until they think they have enough stuff. There is not indication of a desire to reach sustainability. Aside from war, that is every diplomatic choice you really have with them, except for the absolutely pointless support factions options. I say it is pointless because I couldn't find a point. I couldn't see any change over time whatsoever.

This is just a short list of what I found disappointing about this game. What I wanted was an accurate, defensive shlog that would reflect the Great War. What I got was a game where offensive movement is far too easy to accomplish.
