Acerca de este juego

Prepárate para la experiencia estratégica definitiva.
Comercio internacional, conflictos religiosos y culturales, negociaciones diplomáticas... aquí puedes controlarlo todo. MAKING HISTORY II: The War of the World ofrece a los jugadores el poder de controlar totalmente cualquier nación mundial, colonia, región, ciudad y unidad militar en el período previo y durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Los generales de sillón y los fans de la gran estrategia podrán turnarse para construir grandes imperios o proteger al mundo de la tiranía durante estos momentos clave de la historia de la humanidad.
Además del comercio a nivel nacional y los intereses diplomáticos, te encargarás de la gestión de los proyectos regionales y urbanos, de elegir las tecnologías adecuadas para su investigación, de dirigir el desplazamiento y desarrollo militar, de llevar a cabo relaciones diplomáticas internacionales, de mantener la estabilidad nacional y de producir recursos vitales para hacer posible todo lo demás. El desarrollo de instalaciones de producción e investigación en las ciudades las convierte en centros de industria y tecnología. Las ciudades mejoradas pueden producir nuevas unidades y desbloquear tecnologías avanzadas. A nivel regional, puedes construir estructuras defensivas a gran escala que incluyen redes de radar y fortificaciones, desarrollar infraestructuras de transporte y expandir la producción de recursos necesarios para impulsar tu economía. La victoria en el escenario mundial requiere que todos los niveles de tu imperio trabajen juntos para lograr tus metas.
Cada turno ofrece infinidad de decisiones y opciones para seguir adelante, escribiendo la historia de tu imperio. ¿Bloquearás las rutas de comercio con tu marina de guerra, eliminado así las vías de suministros enemigas? ¿Concederás la independencia a agitados grupos étnicos o religiosos para evitar una revuelta generalizada? ¿Vas a desarrollar tus acuerdos comerciales y expandir tu influencia en el poderío industrial, o invertirás en un ejército caro y tecnológicamente avanzado para aplastar a toda la oposición? Además de mantener en marcha los planes económicos y nacionales, serás desafiado por potencias extranjeras controladas por jugadores humanos en una partida multijugador o por una IA basada en períodos que seguirán sus propias agendas nacionales e interferirán en tus asuntos y en los de tus aliados. Un panorama político y económico en constante cambio mantiene a las potencias mundiales ocupadas modificando sus planes para prepararse para conflictos inevitables.
Nunca dos juegos de MHII serán los mismos mientras haya un número ilimitado de formas de lograr tus metas. Las decisiones que tomas determinarán la historia de tu nación. Que la historia hable de un liberador o de un conquistador depende de ti.

This game has been a lot of fun for me. With improved UI and the good kind of simplification(compared to the first one), this game is a must consider for those who love history, military, or strategy. Although the main downside is a not good tutorial and you are thrust into WW2 not knowing sh*t. Also those with no or little patience will most likely not like the game or at least some of the nations (cough) USSR (cough) due to the large amount of starting regions. To sandwich the bad I can also say no game will ever be the same in any way, whether it be the Italy AI taking France or the British commonwealth and America taking on Russia, all AI with no player interference. The diplomacy is good especially in war time when you can take advantage of another nations need in a war (me aka Germany sideing with America and the UK to fight Russia).

In short- Try it. Shut up and try it if you have the money and you are patient.

Going to be a long text, so TLDR; get the first installment of the series, The Calm and the Storm. Its definatly more worth its pricetag.
If you already own the first installment, keep playing that, as you will not gain much for the 20 Bucks here.

The game, while theoreticaly quite fun, has some problems which just ruin the experience, the biggest one being that it just runs poorly. While I do have a decent machine, nothing fancy, but also not bad in any way (AMD 6300FX, 8gb, R9-290). Turntimes start off very fast, but do get longer over the course of the game. Not too long, but still somewhat annoying, considering that you will spend the majority of gameplay clicking away idle turns (If you're playing historically about 230 turns, just until the beginning of the war).
My main issue is however, that everything feels "slow" and "lagging" as in. Scrolling the map makes the scrolling "stutter", so the map doesnt move smoothe but keeps jumping. This also is technically not a problem, as you can easily get anywhere on the map, but it just doesnt feel right and stressful. Giving commands to units, opening Menues and virtually clicking anywhere has a delay of ~0.5-1 second (didnt measure it, but its just... you feel it, you know?). That doesnt seem like much but it is annoying as hell and makes the playing experience simply feel "unsmooth" and, to some extend, especially when giving a large amount of orders, stressful. This is enhanced by the games second problem.

The second problem im having with this game is its interface. Everything feels like it needs at least one click too much. For example: Merging 2 units requires you to have both units in the same province (of course...). Then you select one and right click on the other one. Then a dropdown menu appears and you can select "merge units" at which point you need to select the unit you JUST rightclicked on from the appearing "list", which (in the 6 hours i played so far) has never shown more that the exact unit I rightclicked on anyway, even if there are multiple units in the province. Or for example research, where there is no "each laboratory that can, research the same thing" button. You need to select a research option for each single laboratory when you just want all of them to research the same thing. Why 30 clicks instead of 1?

The game has no tutorial and close to no tooltips but only an encyclopedia. This is in most cases only a minor inconvinience since, in opposition to lets say the hearts of iron series, most things are grasped somewhat easily and without explanation. However, in production and research, this lack of help is very annoying. When selecting production over the City-Screen you get a LITTLE bit more info, but usually you will be chosing production from the production menu (where you see all cities) and here you get virtually no help to tell you for example the difference between a cottage factory, a mechanised factory, a large factory aso.
Research is even worse. In the research tree, options are only shown linked to the last thing they need, however, they may have other requirements from earlier in the research tree. This is only shown as a symbol which will give you the name of the required prerequisit research, which you may then search in the researchtree yourself, followed by searching that researches mandatory prerequisits. If you want to know what any of these researches does (What it gives is also just shown as a Noun, like "Highway", you may go to the enzyclopedia and search for Highway to figure out if this is useful in any way to you. This is of course not linked but requires you to actually look through the encyclopeida.) This is a joke, and, once again, Civilization did it better 1/4 Century ago.

The building menu is not sorted. When clicking on production you will get a dropdown menu with ~20-40 production possibilies to scroll through (the dropdown isnt that large, so for some things which you will be chosing a lot, like Tanks, you will need to scroll down), changing your production around for a larger country, for example when switching to tank or airplane production, is just a chore.

The game has barely any feedback to "problems" in your country. For example when your researchers have no goal set you are simply loosing turns in research for no reason, but the game doesnt tell you, instead you need to either memorize every time when you current research is going to be done, or you need to check every couple of turns. There is no reason why the game would let you end your turn with no research selected, like EVERY OTHER GAME ON THE MARKET, starting from 24 Years old Civilization!

The Idea of making the game more sandboxish, allowing countries to ally and fight whoever they want (with some path laying out, but not mandatory) is very good. The execution is rather poorly, with the world AI reminding me of the Total War Series in regards to its "intelligence". While only playing 6 hours I have witnessed twice countries declaring war, just to be annihilated themselves minutes later, since they were not even close to being a match to the enemy. Making Alliances and Trade agreements is just a gamble with no rhyme or reason whatsoever as to who will ally/trade with you. (There is somewhat of a "like"-meter, but it appears to have no influence on the other countries decision and it is almost impossible to change the like-meter anyway.

All in all, if you, like me, are looking for a simplified hearts of iron (Thanks to youtube I didnt find Hearts of Iron III to be that difficult to understand, I just found it to be chore with the bazillion provinces and no fun to automate the War-AI) I would recommend the first part of this series (the calm and the storm). While that game definatly has problems of its own (max resolution of 1024x768 with no widescreen option for example) it runs way better, the AI seems more predictable (in this case meant in a positive way as in - the guy with MASSIVE amounts of food who loves you will probably sell you some) and it felt more fast-paced as this one. Also its only 4Euros (got it for 1 in a sale), as to the 20 of this game.

I have played this game for 1200-1500 hours. This is the best WWII game ever made. If you want a grand strategy game and don't care too much about graphics then this is your game. My only complaint is not being able to trade or gift units or technology to allies.

This is one game i reccomend to people who like world war 2 strategy games. There is a very hard learning curve at first but once you get used to it the game will keep you playing and planning for diffrent things. Just like the game itself the editor is hard to figure out but once you get the hang of it the editor is really interesting to use. The only real complaint is that if you have a large nation you have to do a lot of clicking per turn and that leaves your mouse hand sore after only a few turns. One thing I like is that the AI has done somthing I did not expect every game. For example in my most recent game the ussr invaded norway only for germany to declare war on the ussr and both duked it out in norway. (germany did not conquer anything at that point so the only line of contact was norway) A good game and one I would like to continue playing into the future.


Update: multiplayer is broken beyond belief for several reasons. one is that steam version of this game is no longer updated. two the game crashes on lan games all the time. and three to play online multiplayer you have to go to the website of the game and register and you can't play senarios online
i would still get this game for single player but not multiplayer

This game has it all - not only must you build up your military, which can be affected from morale, experience, and even weather, but you must maintain the economy by feeding your population and extracting resources. Moreover, you must maintain political stability during all defenses and conquests, lest you desire a revolt! Luckily, you can write up your own trade agreements, make alliances (even if they are not historically accurate) and declare war on whoever you damn well please.

The game is incredibly realistic and a metric butt ton of fun.

There is no tutorial, so much learning will be trial and error: but it's totally worth it.

This game is super fun if you like strategy. It is sort of like Axis and Allies only more involved, and yet not as insane as Hearts of Iron. It has a nice balance so that you can jump right in without reading wikis for hours, and yet the strategy is robust enough to keep me hooked.

Really good strategy game for WWII. Long gameplay with a lot of different aspects to manage for any fan of strategy. Plus the multiplayer is good if you have people to play with regularly.

Seriously one of the best grand strategy games I've ever played.
Much more streamlined than what I've seen from Hearts of Iron 3.

What an amazing time waster game...

I'm now playing arround 1965 and unfortunately it is laggy like hell at the start of each turn... With a 3.5GHz intel i7 quadcore, 16GB of RAM and a samsung SSD there's no excuse ! :-/

Still, the game really worths it :)

This is a strategy game were you, control your Nation of choosing and lead them to a new age of ligth or darkness. You can try to remain neutral in a world at war, join a faction or make your own. What ever you pick, the game will be interesting and unpredictable. However, unlike the first Making History game, this game has several issues; like crashes, wrong ideologies in several countries, and a horrible menu. The game is fun, the graphics are better than the previous one but that doesn't make it a better game. I would recommend the previous Making History, the first game of the series.

If you think something was missing in the "Making History: The Calm & The Storm" then you wouldn't think the same about "Making History II: The War of the World". Balanced and unpredictible.

I'd like to start off with just saying. I like this game in some ways and think it has a lot of cool things about it. I honestly have one major complaint. The game progresses turn by turn. I"m not saying turn based gameplay doesn't work ever or that it isn't a good idea. It's an interesting idea for a game like this, but personally I found myself having nothing to do each turn after a point and just clicking end turn over and over again trying to finish building factories or other production which I need for the war. As a more minor but still somewhat significant complaint is that it seems like after a point combat becomes kind of confusing and muddled especially when the actual world war starts. I actually like a number of things about how industry and politics work. It is a lot like Hearts of Iron 3. Which I would tend to recommend more. Making History II: War of the World can get kind of slow and aggrevating with a turn based rather than real time system. I would also say the combat in Hearts of Iron is less confusing once you get past the immediate confusion I've heard some players have with it's battle mechanics.

I'm sorry if that got a bit muddled. In closing. This is a ok game with some flaws to it which make me not able to really recommend this, it's predeccesor or sequel since they all seem to share the core gameplay without significant changes. I'm not saying they need to develop a direct clone of Hearts of Iron or any other game. But am saying a turn based grand strategy game is interesting, but probably as it turns out not the most efficent way to progress in one. When I purchased this I didn't know about Paradox Interactives grand strategy games and I would recommend someone who thinks this game looks interesting to first check out their cataloge. Shop around.

POSITIVE

+ A nice industrial system
+ A long tech tree
+ A scenario editor

NEGATIVE

- - -Turn based system makes the game kind of sluggish It's the main reason I don't play it anymore
- - Combat isn't great
