Om detta spel

Prepare for the ultimate grand strategy experience.
International trade, religious and cultural strife, military campaigns, diplomatic negotiations... here, you control it all. MAKING HISTORY II: The War of the World gives players the power to take full control of any world nation, colonies, regions, cities, and military units during the time leading up to and during the Second World War. Armchair generals and fans of grand strategy can take their turns building great empires or protecting the world from tyranny during these pivotal moments in world history.
In addition to nation-level trade and diplomatic concerns, you are tasked with managing region and city-level projects, choosing the right technologies to research, directing military movement and development, conducting international diplomacy, maintaining domestic stability and producing resources vital to making everything else possible. Developing production and research facilities in cities transforms them into centers of industry and technology. Upgraded cities can produce new units and unlock advanced technologies. At the region level, you can build large-scale defensive structures such as radar arrays and fortifications, develop transportation infrastructure, and expand the resource production needed to fuel your economy. Victory on the world stage will require that all levels of your empire work together towards your goals.
Every turn offers countless decisions and options to move forward, writing the history of your empire. Will you block trade routes with your navy, choking off enemy supplies? Will you grant a restless ethnic or religious group independence to prevent widespread revolt? Will you build up your trade agreements and expand your influence with industrial might, or invest in an expensive, technologically advanced army to crush all opposition? In addition to keeping domestic and economic plans on track, you will be challenged by outside powers -- Controlled by human players in a multiplayer match or period-inspired AI -- that will pursue their own national agendas and interfere in the affairs of you and your allies. A shifting political and economic landscape keeps world powers busy adjusting plans, preparing for inevitable clashes.
No two games of MHII will be the same as there are an unlimited number of ways to achieve your goals. The choices you make determine the history of your nation. Whether that history will speak of a liberator or a conqueror is up to you.

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 :)

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 liked the first one and I really wanted to like this one since the 2nd one has more features but the game is so badly optimized that the lag is unbearable.

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.

For some reason i've really disliked the game's UI.

It lacks lots of detail and options than Making history II.

Diplomacy, trade and other stuff got really un-fun and non-sense.

Stick to Making History II, much better, it just need to be finished.

Are you a fan of "Total War" games? Would you like to see a "Total War" game based on WW2 era??? Then this is your game!!! You ll adore this game with no doubt! Its exactly like Total War games with just one difference; which is that it has only campaign map and not battle maps too... which means that you play the battles on the campaign map... However I have to mention that it gives even more strategic possibilities to the player than ''Total War" ...like to establish new countries in conquered territories! It is the perfect grand strategy game for WW2 era .

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.

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.

Hard to decide here so imma break it down
Good: Addictive, Complex and Full of Strategy, Good AI Challenging even on Easy, Very Deep, Allows you to just ♥♥♥♥ up history and play by your own rules and Good Value.
♥♥♥♥: NO TUTORIAL (WTF!), Hard to learn, Diplomacy very very rough.

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
