Om dette spillet

Making History® er et åpent spill i den klassiske strategisjangeren, men i tillegg har det fascinerende nye økonomi-, militær- og diplomatisystemer samt omfattende forskning. Dermed kan du spille med ekte historiske utfordringer.

I spillet befinner du deg i en detaljrik verden under andre verdenskrig der hver nasjon har sin egen dagsorden, og der krigsforløpet fort kan snu på grunn av én allianse. Jobb med din nasjons historiske styrker og svakheter. Bygg opp industrien, infrastrukturen, økonomien og militæret. Inngå allianser. Deretter revurderer du strategien etter hvert som krigsforløpet endrer seg.

  • Detaljrik verden fra 2. verdenskrig: MAKING HISTORY: The Calm & the Storm har over 80 nasjoner og 800 regioner. Hver nasjon har detaljerte egenskaper basert på omfattende forskning, inkludert økonomiske og militære styrker, diplomatiske forhold, ideologi og tekniske kunnskaper. Hver region har terreng, infrastruktur, ressursproduksjon og mer.
  • Du er nasjonen din: Hopp inn i en verden i stadig omveltning der hver nasjon jakter på sine egne mål, og der krigsforløpet fort kan snu takket være oppløsningen av én allianse. Planlegg strategier basert på nasjonens historiske styrker og svakheter, og revurder eventuelt planene etter hvert som verden endrer seg som et svar på dine handlinger. Spill som Storbritannia, Frankrike, Tyskland, Italia, Japan, Sovjetunionen, USA eller Kina.
  • Flerfoldige kampscenarioer: Et oppfinnsomt kampsystem tillater mange tilnærminger til stridigheter, fra enorme slag til våpenhviler. Forsyninger, troppeforsterkninger og terreng påvirker stridsplanen din.
  • Flere militære alternativer: Bruk unike stridsenhetsegenskaper til å føre en blitzkrig med panservern, utkjemp utmattelsesslag mot infanterihorder, eliminer fiendens industrianlegg ved hjelp av strategiske bombefly, og bomb flåter til havs ved hjelp av mellomdistansevåpen fra hangarskip. Ved hjelp av forskning kan du bruke mer avanserte militære enheter, og hver enhet har en detaljert 3D-modell.
  • Avansert verdensøkonomi: Spillets økonomisystem setter opp forbindelsene mellom verdensmakt og økonomisk styrke. Spillerne kontrollerer handel, bistand, industriell utvikling, investeringer i infrastruktur og viktige forskningsområder.
  • Kraftig alliansesystem: Etter hvert som du inngår og bryter allianser, erklærer krig og foreslår fred, påvirker hver handling forholdet ditt til andre nasjoner og deres villighet til å inngå allianse med deg. Hvis du mangler sterke allierte, vil du kanskje oppleve at andre nasjoner angriper deg.
  • Historiske scenarioer: Seks scenarioer lar deg starte på et viktig historisk tidspunkt, fokusere på en spesiell hendelse, eller spille hele krigen. Scenarioene omfatter Frankrikes fall, Pearl Harbor, invasjonen av Europa på D-dagen, Sudetenland-konfliktene og mer, og hvert av scenarioene er basert på omfattende undersøkelser. Du kan forsøke å lykkes der andre har mislyktes, eller du kan prøve en annen tilnærming og se hva som skjer.
  • Overlegen gjenspillbarhet: I hvert scenario befinner du deg i et nytt og krigsherjet dilemma. Hver nasjon du spiller, står overfor unike utfordringer. Alt utvikler seg ut fra de økonomiske og militære valgene dine, alliansene du inngår, og handlingene dine og de andre nasjonenes reaksjon på dem.
  • Enkeltspiller- og flerspillerspill basert på tur: Oppfinnsomme simuleringer basert på tur er en rask og reaksjonssterk måte å spille på, og den sørger for at du har kontroll uten å nøle. Spill med opptil åtte andre spillere i flerspillermodus ved hjelp av intern chat i spillet, slik at dere kan planlegge fellesstrategier og hemmelige planer. Kommer du til å være en lojal alliert eller en bedragersk tyrann?
  • Bygd for modifisering: Bruk scenarieverktøyet som følger med, til å modifisere scenarioer eller lage egne.

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

This game quite confusing when you first start to play. You will want to build up your army and invade everyone around you. That isn't always the best idea you soon learn.

This game makes it difficult to manage your goods, arms, coal, metals, oils, and the many wars you will get into.

This is a great game, though it does get tiring clicking on so many cities once you get large enough. The difficulty curve makes sense. If you want to face resistance, go "normal". If you want a real war, go "hardest". But if you just want to have fun and conquer the world, choose "easiest" difficulty and choose Germany.

Overall, this is an enjoyable game, save for two things: the aforementioned monotonous clicking and a very, very annoying bug that makes it impossible to play the game due to an error concerning the game's apparent inability to find its own engine. When this happens, the only thing that will help is to restart Steam in Administrator mode and launch it from there. It should work then.

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.

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 SHIET 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

I had only played the Gold version before and now that I picked this gem on Steam for under a euro I can say - they are very different. At first I thought that the only difference is the lack of some campaign scenarios - mainly the one that starts at 1933 and gives you so much time to develop them unstoppable armies! But after I played one of the shorter ones I came to some conclusions:

  • the color palettes are a bit off and not so smooth on my eyes - easily changed in the Gold version
  • the infrastructure is VERY slow to develop - really 72 turns to upgrade one level? And I thought Gold taking 17 turns was slow.
  • HUGE maintenance costs! Why spend 1/5th of the campaign in upgrading a slot if in the end it will cost half your GDP to maintain? No such problem in Gold.
  • at first I thought "Why does research cost so little points? Now I can pump Heavy tanks before everyone else!" - yeah but no - research is compleatly RNG based so even at full IPU those 25 research poins can take 100+ turns to make...
  • all units have only one combat "value" which makes gameplay blunt as it doesn't matter what armies you build. In Gold each unit has Attack and Defense - this for instance makes infantry very hard to deal with and while tanks have huge attack power they are probably the first to fall in battle due to low defense.
  • a lot of other nitpicks that I could point out but they aren't that gamebreaking.

What I am trying to get at is this - there are a lot of balance issues with the game but chances are unless you've played the Gold version, you might not notice some at all and thats good. Just letting you know there is a better version out there that is currently not on Steam. That being said I still think this series is amazing.

5/10

This isn't the real game and Muzzy Lane has no control over it. Don't buy it on steam, but it on the website:
http://making-history.com/purchase/index
Owned by Muzzy Lane.

Even asa 2007 game it was good. It was fun... but eventually steam has an error which doesn't allow you from playing the game discussed here:

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.

Very fun UNTIL you run out of coal during the war, at which point NO ONE wants to sell any and unless you have a 2 billion dollar coushon your economy is going to tank, this was playing as mexico anyway, basically I've found that there is a lot of skipping to the next turn because you have to skew your build more towards economy than military or research, as far as the actual combat goes, eh not TOO exciting but it'll give you a kick the first few times, however Civ V has better looking combat but less realistic strategy so it's a horse a piece, also if you play as mexico... DO NOT ATTACK THE SMALL PEEPS. IDC HOW TEMPTING IT LOOKS DO NOT. YOU WILL RUIN THE REST OF THE GAME FOR YOURSELF.

Solid 7/ 10

Awesome game if you like fighting in the WW2 era. Its not overly complicated, yet its very competitive for you and your friends. Definately my current favorite strategy game of all time. If you like Risk and/or Axis and Allies you would like this. Always looking for more people who enjoy the game to play with.

This game isnt the best strategy game, granted, however it is about World War 2, which is real life history. You can simulate it how you want to, and might be suprised with some of the alliances formed! You can also use the Modern History Editor which allows you to change lots of areas of the game, like territory. So much fun, especially if you are winning! Its definitely worth a buy as it is cheap and fun!
