第二次世界大戦を舞台にしたターン制シミュレーションゲームです、軍が交戦に入ったら戦闘演出などはなく、マップ上でシンプルにコンバットパワー(戦闘能力)が表示され、自動的に交戦します。

このゲームは歴史的に進行しない場合が多いです。ソ連でプレイしてドイツと同盟組んだら、フランス同盟、日本による三つ巴になったり。
スイスやカナダなどの国家でWW2をプレイすることも可能です。

国内状況を無視して大戦に突入することもできますが、ペナルティでどんどんジリ貧になっていきます。

ゲームを開始したらとりあえず内政。殆どの国で資源が足りないから輸入が必要です。石油や石炭は
価格が安いからどんどん輸入可能です。(戦争状態じゃない場合のみ)
それで国民に配る商品と兵士に配る兵器を作成します。
そして国内のインフラを整える。まず石炭や鉄工所があるのなら
最大値まであげて、交通のインフラもついでに整備しておく、国内が安定したら参戦という流れが基本です。
(宣戦布告されたり、他の同盟国に引っ張られて戦争になることもしばしば)

まあ面白いゲームなんですが、日本でこのゲームの知名度が低すぎて日本語化Modどころか、Wikiすらありません。
英語でのプレイになることを踏まえて、購入を検証してみてください。

Due to me putting 130+ hours into the game, I feel like I have a right to review it.

Compared to other games such as Europa Universalis or any other Grand Strategy game, The Calm & the Storm is pretty simplistic when it comes to gameplay. Diplomacy is simple and combat is relatively easy to learn.

One thing I will mention though, is that the world market is your best friend. if you play as anyone but the U.S USSR or Germany (I'm not sure about the U.K or China) then you will become dependent to the world market. Surprisingly, the same goes to self-sufficient countries if you want to keep a fairly steady income.

That's all I'm going to mention about the game because if you download custom scenarios (which I HIGHLY recommend) then the gameplay, research, resource consumption, world market, etc will change depending on the scenario.

For an example, I downloaded a scenario that let me played as the Holy Roman Empire in 1936, I fought the Nazis, conquered Europe, and fought the USSR and the U.K as a pro-Fascist SuperPower. Yes, Hitler was beaten by Julius Caesar.

I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to get into Grand Strategy games. This is a good place to start with it's cheap price and its simple gameplay mechanics.

I say no
Canada Declare war on me
UK Join the fight with Canada
Germans use the chance to wipe out Canada and Commonwealth forces
Germans wipe out everyone

Best 99 cents I've ever spend. I'd have even paid the full price, maybe more for it. At first you might think: "EWW DIS GAME IS FROM 2007 IZ SO OLD AND DA GRAPHIZ IS ♥♥♥♥♥ SO IT MUST BE BAD". If you think so, you're wrong. It's one of the best games i've ever played, I got addicted from playing the demo and persuaded my friends to buy it too cause they thought the same as I mentioned earlier. But hell, this game is f*cking fun! Play in single- or multiplayer (LAN connection or Hamachi) with maximum 8 players as one if the leading nations in WW2 (Italy, Germany, UK, US, France, China, USSR, Japan) in 6 different scenarios in the time before and in WW2 (20th Jul 1936 - 1st Oct 1945, 1st Sep 1938 - 30th Mar 1939, 1st Sep 1939 - 19th Oct 1945, 1st Aug 1940 - 4th Oct 1945, 7th Dec 1941 - 7th Oct 1945, 6th Jun 1945 - 9th Oct 1945). In singleplayer you can even play as one of the "smaller" Nations (afghanistan, spain, etc...). It's really realistic and shows many aspects, not only "I HAVE MOAR TROOPS SO I WIN BATTLE" but also how advanced the troops are, how many arms were produced for them and which vehicles support them. Combine war tactics, alliances, production, research and trading on the world market to push up your nation in war. Before you start a game you can either pick if the biggest alliance, nation or ideology wins in the end.

TL:DR: Buy it, f*cking buy it. NOW
