Very thorough remake of Hearts of Iron 2 - it is wider and deeper than original game, which itself is very wide and deep in terms of every fan of turn-based global strategies.
It was released not as mod but as a separate game due to significant amount of gameplay changes above the original HOI2 game. And it is still under development! Get me right - Arsenal of Democracy is a finished product, yet there are always room for some improvements and additional campaigns and stuff. And yeah, community is friendly, and welcome for any newcomers, but...

But I won't recommend you to start with Paradox games from this title. There are way too many options, details, charts and graphs to sink in... So you'll get by better starting from Europa Universalis 3 or even Victoria 2, than with Arsenal of Democracy.
So I do recommend the game - but only for prepared ones, who grown up above the basic things Civilization taught us, and ready to spend dozens or even hundreds of hours on single separate scenario, making his own history. There are so many scenarios and mods to prove yourself on... And if you'll be not getting enough, you can always make some of your own.

Finally, I must inform you that there are a major bug still troubling some players - a flickering screen problem. For some people the game works straight out of box, some have to go to Paradox forums and download patches (Steam is releasing 1.04 version now, and current patch on Paradox is 1.09 or maybe 1.10 already). And for some systems flickering goes on forever, like how it goes with my laptop. So I warn you! There is a possibility that this game will be unplayable, no matter how great it is...

My mark is 8/10. I'd like to give the game more, but flickering bug is still a big issue, even after 5+ years after game release.

This game was great to begin with, but it has recently undergone some major updates in the form of version 1.09. Sadly the latest patch is not available on Steam, but it can be downloaded from Paradox forums, where you can register your game and get access to the patches https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?forums/arsenal-of-democracy.462/

There is even a 1.10 patch in early alpha stage, the patch will attempt to adress the ancient bugs and problems with the game engine.

Graphics arent anything wonderfull, but this is about grand strategy, not fancy fireworks.

Game in itself is straight up Hearts of Iron, if your a Paradox fan, then you will love AoD aswell. Multitude of variation in strategy, tactics, diplomacy, large techtree, plenty of unit types and so much little details to think of that after years of playing, you still learn new things every now and then. It has the best replayability value that I have ever seen in a strategy game. If you have not played Paradox games before, then you are up for a long and hard path of learning the game, but it is very much worth it.

The AI is not terribly challenging once you master the game, the difficulty setting just grants it more bonuses rather than intelligence, but luckily there are alot of mods that improve the AI and gameplay generally, such as my own mod which can be downloaded here:

Best way to enjoy this game however is in multiplayer, there are various forums where you can sign up and try to find an MP game to join, Paradox forum is a good place to start. You need GameRanger to get access to online game as the game itself has no lobby function anymore.

In multiplayer the game springs to life, as you can co-op as Axis or Allies, or a desperate struggle as Poland/Czechoslovakia with your friend, the choices are limitless. But best games are the ones where all the major powers are controlled by a human player, that is where things get real. The games progress relatively slowly due to amount of players, but in also forces you to cooperate with your allies and form plans and strategies which can be equally fun as playing the game itself.

All in all, this is my favourite WW2 Grand strategy game and has been since its release. No other game has come even close, so I can recommend it with all my heart.

This is probably my favorite game period...I have replayed it countless times using different countries and strategies. There is a step learning curve but if you take the time to figure everything out it is so worth it.

Good game and fun to play. The game is very complex with many different layers and decisions to make. It has an accurate representation of the time period itself. If you like the Hearts of Iron series this is a good pickup if you have always wanted to continue your game for a longer period of time. In the older versions you had to pretty much use cheats in order to take over the world but not in this one, you get plenty of time to spread your empire through conquest.
