I like this game, but I can't stand the blatant anti-axis bias here.

This game is so amazing, its so simple and pure fun. Its not complicated at all, there is a tutorial that lasts 30 min and teaches you everything about the game: Diplomacy,millitary and so on. The good thing about this game is that its random, and when i say random i mean that lets say Germany and USA can be allies and Soviet union can be allies with Japan, and that makes the game much more fun to play.Btw if you saw these negative reviews about *authorization errors* or any other, no worries. Its easy to fix it, Just restart steam and if that doesnt work, then run it as administrator. Some of those two solutions must work.

First ever review. I love this game. Got it for 50p months ago, and I love it more than any other games I have purchased deposited it being the cheapest!!!

The AI is challenging, very historical and if you are going to purchase this game, it is best to not play as Poland, Czechoslovakia or Austria after 1936 ;)

After i managed to get Croatia it's independence i decided to randomly start war against it, because i got bored after i gave entire Russia and Europe to it.(Yes, Croatia had control over Russia and Europe, Croatia stronk)

So, Croatia firstly made an alliance with Brazil, because there is no more random country when it comes to war against Croatia and Germany. The allied with Poland, i was amused.

Then Croatia formed the "Fascist state of Albania". I died laughing.

This game has nothing to do with WWII. Here you do whatever the hell you want.

Croatia stronk, hail Fascist Albania 10/10

When I first bought the game for 75 cents, I didn't think this was a strategy type of game. Traditionally with World War II games, I picked Germany (my homeland) as who I want to play as. Instead of being evil, I hightened my reputation with neighboring countries, gave aid to countries in need, and was just being plain friendly. Then I realized that in order to make best friends with other countries, I needed their same goverment. Since I was trying to be buddies with France, I decided to go for Democracy. The only way I could think of changing my goverment was to declare war on them and immediately ask for peace by changing goverment fourm.

This was a DISASTER. France chose to decline in a millisecond. Instead of the Nazis blitzkrieging the French, the French blitzkrieged ME. After losing, I was libberated into a COMMUNIST country from the USSR who recently took Poland due to greed. I fell out of my chair laughing now since I had the support of the communists from the East, and the Italians from the South. France fell in 3 turns after I was liberated. Eventually I grew strong enough to fight back the Soviets all the way to Leningrad just like real World War 2, until they demolished me with aircraft.

The Americans were coming from the West while this happened. I had an amazing defence on the boarder of Germany and France, and when the Allies saw this, the United States of America declared war on the Allies. I was crying by this point. America has ruined the plan for all the Allies to defeat Nazi Germany, and I retook annexed France under my wing.

While Americans were fighting British men in Normany (where the American men were suppose to fight the Nazis), I was marching into Moscow with my swastika flag. Eventually I took over Italy, and the rest of my European allies.

I must say; America avoided the Cold war by reenacting the Revolutionary war of 1775-1783 in 1945. 10/10 will play as America next time to create World War III = The United States of America against The United Kingdom against The USSR.

MH: TCatS is one of the better WWII strategy games available on Steam.

The game offers a nice balance of the need to balance Trade and Economy and Military Expansion. It is not as in depth as concurrence games like Hearts of Iron, but this makes the game very Casual friendly without losing its charme for core players like me.

You can play as a nation of the given scenario time, by standard between 1936 and 1944 (so around World War II obviously). That obviously includes nations like the Soviet Union, the USA and Nazi Germany, but also stuff like Liberia, Bhutan and Guatemala. Great variety of nations. The weaker a nation is, the harder it gets for the player. (You can also set the difficulty out of 7 different difficulties to make enemy AIs more aggressive and well thinking in battle and allied AIs more cowardly and bad thinking in battle.)

One of the big upsides of the game is the real in depth Map Editor, that lets you change special properties of the map like the size of army and the exact position of cities, but also basic properties like which region belongs to which nation and creating new cities, resources, nations etc. The only thing negative is that the Editor targets towards more casual players. Changing flags and emblems of nation, as well as the relation and the behavior of AIs is only able to be changed by going into Editor .xml files and changing the codes. It lets you create stuff like WWI or Modern World or completely fantastic scenarios, but you cannot change the Planet itself sadly. Id love to play in the world of Dungeons & Dragons, WarCraft, etc., but sadly it is not given.

The BIGGEST upside is the Multiplayer of the game. It is really fun, but first off is the community pretty small, so bring some friends to play MP. Also, you mostly need a LAN device to find the servers, Id recommend playing on a LAN party or using Hamachi or better Tunngle (better networks, server and better stabilized).


Over all a pretty great game, even though the expansion to the Gold version, as well as the also pretty good second part of the franchise, is missing on Steam.

This game could help give people a better understanding of just how fragile the eco system of war is, giving them a sense of realism that is not found in most other strategy games. Unfortunately it's that same level of realism that might make this game unplayable for other gamers.

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.
