I come at this as one who originally played HoI3 followed by Darkest Hour. AoD focuses very much on domestic and economic issues (repairing provinces, civic investment as a means to alleviating dissent as opposed to simply cranking out consumer goods). It's really sliders galore. The implimentation of over-arching, nation-wide policies is also nice.
What this game could use, however, is a bit more UI polish. To use the technology tree as an example -- colors seem stark and non-period while useability refinements such as historical years within each tech's respective title should have been implimented. The AI also makes questionable ahistoric decisions, leaving history-minded players stuck. If you're open-minded and wanting unpredictablity though, that might be right up your alley.

All that being said, I recommend this to players wanting diplomatic and policy-heavy gameplay without losing military action.

this the absolute best game in the hearts of iron series, while darkest hour is the most stable and have a lot of nice features, the logistics, combat and other mechanics simply make this the best game in the series

If you like Paradox games, World War II, history, RISK or a combination of some of that, you will love this game.

It may need more hours than other simplier strategy games to understand (not even dominate) the game but when you do, it brings you hundreds of possibilities.

What about a world where France leave the Allies, join the Axis, and a strong French-Germany alliance dominate the world?

Its all up to you.

I enjoyed planning production, waging campaigns on multiple fronts, amphibious assaults, launching ICBMS, choosing to play as any nation of the time era, researching tech, and making an alternate history over the course of many hours. Out of almost 200 games in my library I always keep this one installed just incase I feel the need to turn the Netherlands into a nuclear power in 40's. 10/10 plus using cheats is very fun too.

Never Cared Much for the Hears of Iron games. But this version of Hearts of Iron 2 is spectacular. Choose a country you want to be. Most that existed are in the game. Go grab a co-op buddy or buddies and fight out world war 2...If you are good enough you can do just about anything you can imagine. 8/10 it's good for what it is. but it's not without its bugs or glitches. in the 100 hours played my game has crashed about 5 times but it has a good autosave system.

Here you can make an alliance between Stalin and Hitler and plunge the world into an abyss of orthodox communist-fascism. Heil Comrade Stalin!

Similar to it's fellow HOI2 mod Darkest Hour, AoD is HOI2 with some pretty nice improvements. While DH added more actual game content (including WW1), AoD focuses more on improving upon what already existed in HOI2. The result is that the WW2 you fight in this is a better experience than the vanilla game, and that was an excellent game already. With that said, I prefer Darkest Hour to this simply because there is more stuff there even if it is not quite as well-polished as it is here.

Strategy nerds and fellow psychos will find much to like here. It's old, but still good. :)

If you play Hearts of Iron III, you just might find this version more fun if you're playing by yourself. Being able to escape the confines of history by going into the 50's and 60's gets crazy with the Cold War gone hot. Plus the tech tree is much more fleshed out, and you can more easily (with time and patience) play as micro powers. Politics are also a tad more interesting. Overall I was very surprised by this little gem.

on the negative side:
- It is a bit hard to learn if you are not familiar with hearts of iron series of games. it has some kind of tutorial, but that is nowhere enough to understand all the features.
- no fancy graphics [well, you may even say no graphics at all, as you will turn out the animated sprites after a fer hours of gameplay and use counters to represent units/armies as they are much more informative at a glance. - a game can take very long from start to finish But if you don't mind a long learning curve, and have a lot of time this is easily one of the best strategy games you can find. It is a big improvement over HoI2 in all areas. If you liked HoI2 you will love this.

WW2 Grand Strategy at it's finest. It's hard to change the course of history, compared to some other games of this type - but it's possible.
What else to say - hundreds of different types of authentic WW2 units, events, research tree, leaders. So many different tactics and strategies you can adopt.

C.O.R.E. Mod is highly recommended, it just makes everything better, expands the game, adds a ton more historical events, makes all the unit and research options, combat system more authentic.
