Tietoja pelistä

Making History® delivers the open-ended gameplay of strategy-game classics, but with compelling new economic, military, and diplomatic systems and deep research that lets you play with real historical challenges.

The game drops you into a rich WWII world where every nation has its own agenda, and where events can turn on a single alliance. Work with your nation's historic strengths and weaknesses. Build up your industry, infrastructure, economy, military. Create alliances. Then reshape your strategy as the world evolves with each turn.

  • Rich WWII world: MAKING HISTORY: The Calm & the Storm includes over 80 nations and 800+ regions. Each nation is given detailed characteristics built on extensive research, including economic and military strengths, diplomatic relations, ideology, and technical advancement. Each region features terrain, infrastructure, resource production and more.
  • You are your Nation: Jump into a world in motion where every nation is pursuing its own agenda, and where events can turn on the breaking of a single alliance. Devise strategies based on your nation's historic strengths and weaknesses' and revise your plans as the world evolves in response to your actions. Play as the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the USSR, the United States, or China.
  • Multi-Turn Combat: An innovative combat system allows many approaches to engagements from massive assaults to holding actions. Supplies, reinforcements and geography all affect your battle plan.
  • More Military Options: Use unique unit abilities to blitzkrieg with armor, fight attrition battles with hordes of infantry, decimate enemy industry with strategic bombers, and bomb fleets from a distance with a carrier task force. With scientific research you can unlock more advanced military units, and every unit features a detailed 3D model.
  • Sophisticated World Economy: The game's economic system models the connections between world power and economic strength. Players control trade, aid, industrial development, infrastructure investments, and a deep field of research.
  • Powerful Alliance System: As you make and break alliances, declare war and propose peace, each action affects your relations with other nations, and their willingness to ally with you. If you lack strong allies, you may find other nations are more are more likely to attack.
  • Historic Scenarios: Six scenarios let you start at a crucial historic moment, focus on a specific event, or play the whole war. Scenarios cover the fall of France, Pearl Harbor, the D-Day invasion of Europe, the Sudeten crisis and more, and each is based on detailed research. You can work to succeed where others failed, or take a different path and see what happens.
  • Superb replayability: Each scenario drops you into a different firestorm. Each nation you play presents unique challenges. Everything evolves from your economic and military choices, the alliances you make, and the actions and reactions of the world's other nations.
  • Single and Multiplayer Turn-Based Gameplay: Innovative simultaneous-turn-based play is quick and responsive, and keeps you in control with no waiting. Play with up to eight others in multiplayer mode, using in-game chat to devise joint strategies and secret pacts. Will you be a trusted ally or a backstabbing tyrant?
  • Built for Modding: Use included Scenario Editor to modify scenarios or create your own.

This game is straight up broken but not in the way you'd think.
Personally the game was really fun and playable, before it gave me a validation error.
I managed to get in contact with the creator of the game and asked for a refund or a new copy.
He never got back to me after several failed attempts to reach him again.
Do not buy this game.

This game is great, clearly it's worth the 4 dollars.
Relatively easy once you have learned the basics, from then on your way to conquer the world is achievable, there's not only one way, but many others.

I love that you can edit in a seperate program, for those that like it, creating unlimited troops and artillery is also an option, as well as changing diplomatic relations, for example, Alliances.

You can change the course of the world within a few clicks, the game is based much on how you act and how you handle situations, for a few dollars this is much appreciated, (I'm sad when I lost as Germany, I had whole EU & almost US, but the Japs betrayed me)

This game is rather vauge when explaining how to actually play the game itself. When you are brand new to this type of game you will find it difficult as it is pretty hard to tell whether you are doing well or not since you are constantly having shortages of most resources. The game is enjoyable as you slowly take land when you play as the Soviet Union or Nazi Germany. However in saying that, the game didn't really strike chords with me as I just couldn't really grasp it. When you try to improve your economy rather than going on a warpath (Mind you making your country economically sound before war is probably the first thing to do) is really hard to understand. I went online to see if I could improve my skills but I just hit a wall.

The game is somewhat fun but I personally think it will only be a hit with a few strategic enthusiasts.

A very simple, yet very fun strategy game. Feels good to build up big armies and invade countries, then building bigger armies and conquering continents :D You're not stuck with following history, so you can take (for example) the U.S. and annex Canada just because you want to :P I had several playthroughs with different countries, and the only thing that kinda killed some of them was the fact that smaller countries can't do ♥♥♥♥ xD So when I picked up Portugal and tried to invade Spain, I failed miserably. However, playing with Germany, the United States, the Soviet Union, Japan, Italy,the United Kingdom, and even France, is very, very fun.

Actually a pretty fun and good game, quite addicting like civ5, somewhat similar to civ5 in that its a Turn Based stratergy.
Everything matters in this, Diplomacy, Economy (Resources and how you spend them).
Obviously the main aspect is war and it's done really well, It's historictally accurate in terms of dates and countries involved but the end game is all up to you and your choices are what matters when it comes to winning or losing (What i'm trying to say here is you are able to make the Allies lose and Axis win, even conquer the world if you feel like it.)

Well, this would be an interesting game, if Icould play more than just the tutorial. I could start the tutorial, but when I tried to restart the game, it shows "invalid license key" and everything I found on the community page which should fix this issue, does not work on windows 8.1 - so this game is unplayable for me.

I find that I usually only write reviews when I don't like a game, but I'm going to force myself to write one for this game, because I feel its one of the best games I've played in this genre.

Firstly, the graphics are attractive and detailed, which I find a plus for a war game. The unit organization is easy to get the hang of, dividing, combining, and renaming armies are quite intuitive. Supply levels are limited to one type, Arms, which helps you focus strategically instead of trying to micromanage many different kinds of supplies for your armies.

Trading is as complicated as you want it to be. You can just put in trade requests, or you can micromanage the trades as more resources come into the market. However, trades will be handed off to other parties automatically, which is a benefit if you don't want to pay particular attention to trading. Although if you don't watch it, you'll find yourself trading with a nation you didn't want to, because they took over some of your 'contracts' so to speak.

Improving your infrastructure is easy and involves upgrading your roads, agricultural improvements, and reducing or expanding your mine output. It keeps it out of your way, and you get easy updates on progress. This is the same as choosing production, it's easy, and there aren't so many options you can get lost.

All of this is a boon to you, because it makes it easier to focus on your strategy and tactics, which to be fair aren't incredibly in depth, but enough that you can benefits for cutting off enemy army supplies (combat penalties), and you can blitz behind combat to disrupt enemy production. Air units can be assigned to support a battle, or you can target reinforcements, producing cities, attack enemy fleets, provide air cover, they are a help but not overbalanced. Combat is a bit abstract with the computer AI sometimes splitting up a huge number of units into small groups, it can be hard to maintain a cohesive front, but generally they will try to overcome your largest troop concentration by refocusing their units, so it isn't uncontrollable.

Historically the game tries to be accurate, with some events coded into the game, but you can have an immense impact on outcomes, even if you play a smaller nation. I've had crazy match-ups where Japan allies with America to fight the German and Soviet menace. You can stall the Nazi menace, or you can join it and help out, you can preempt the entire war and launch an unprovoked attack on the Germans with America, or try flip the world on its head by trying to become an Argentinian Axis super power. The depth and fluidity of the diplomacy system is also simple, perhaps more simple than it should be, but it works well with the rest of the mechanics.

In short, the game is unbeatable at this price, and even if it cost more it's literally pennies per hour of play, and if you get bored of the included scenarios there are a vast amount of user created ones to choose from. Did I mention the game includes a map/scenario editor? It does, and if you wanted to create the Drakon world of S.M. Stirling, go ahead.

Absolutely addicting strategy game. At first I was unsure about the game, seeing as it looked like just another complicated strategy game. But this game's tutorial is amazing, and gives you enough knowledge of everything, without making it even more complicated than it seems. I'd recommend this to my closest friends if they had PCs.

Alright, I believe I've clocked enough hours into this game to safely say this is absolutely fantastic.
I have never loved a grand strategy game more, and honestly, I am usually very hard on these types of games. Most of them are either too limiting or too complicated for me. This one has the perfect recipe of simplicity and very complex design. Here's a short story based on one of my games:

The U.S. sat back as Germany was taking over Europe, they knew it would happen but weren't yet ready to fight back, it wasn't an immediate danger to them anyway. Finally after years of research they developed nuclear weaponry and ICBMs. They were ready to take down Germany.
A message was sent the the UK asking for permission to use their land to launch the nukes from to finally help put an end to this war, but the requested was rejected and met with a declaration of war. So the U.S. nuked London then Germany invited the U.S. into their alliance. The U.S. sent hundreds of tanks straight into the UK and took over then basically sat back and watched as Germany took over the rest of Europe with Italy's help.

There is a lesson here, always give the U.S. permission to launch nukes off your territory. :D

I really liked this game. It is definitely one of the best games I own on Steam for Grand Strategy. I have had many adventures in this such as playing as America and carving a path through Europe destroying everything in my way and ruling the world in 1946 or playing as Great Britain and capturing Spain, France and parts of Germany in the late 30s. The replayability is huge simply because ANYTHING can happen. The game does encourage you to follow History but you are able to do whatever you want. Playing as Germany for example, befriend France and Great Britain and tackle the Red Menace or my favorite play as America and never getting involved in the war but selling arms to both sides to fuel the conflict the possibilities are endless.


There is one issue however and unfortunately it is gamebreaking. After you start it up a few times it will tell you it's missing a key. There are some fixes to this but none worked for me and I contacted Muzzy Lane directly. They gave me a key to redeem on their website and I was sorted. The fixes do work for some people so I advise giving it a try before contacted the Devs first. That is why I have only played for 4-5 hours on Steam. I have played much longer on the non steam.

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.
