I am going to be honest with you.

This game has stolen many, many hours of my life. I have changed the course of History in an infinite number of ways, and have played most nations, from Germany to the USSR to Cuba to Portugal. It is the best 20th century (until 1950, anyway) grand strategy game in existence. It is far better than Hearts of Iron III.

But what is just fantastic about this game is two things: the community and the mods.

The community is one of the greatest, best bunch of history maniacs and armchair generals I have ever seen. Going to the forums is a rare and wonderful experience. And they are exceedingly nice. And they will advise you and help you. And they will discuss intricate, microscopic details of historical events with you. And you will learn. And you will like it. And you will make friends. A fantastic bunch of people.

The mods, as if the game didn't have enough content already, are incredibly fun to play, and some are incredibly detailed as well. They are not that difficult to install, and you will have a ton of fun with them. I personnally recommend Kaiserreich (Germany wins WWI) and New World Order 2 (get to play during the Cold War as well, including alternative history events for a German victory in WWII). And, of course, the community has also dedicated itself to these mods, especially Kaiserreich.

I have been playing strategy games since Civilization (the first one), and this is the best strategy game I have ever played. Period. If you like strategy games, it is a must own.

Darkest Hour is one of my favourite games, hands down. but why? I think I will list them in bullet points to make it simple
-Compared to HOI III its not needlessly complex, operating simply allowing you to format your forces with ease
-Graphically compared to HOI II it is a massive improvement, compared to HOI III it is not to bad and has a certain 'style' that is interesting
-I find the game to have the right amount of Historical Accuracy, while things will play as they usually did IRL, your choices really impact alot of things, but the AI also sometimes makes choices which affect you
-The WWI scenario makes Dh in my opinion one if not the best WWI Strategy Games outhere
-In the WWI scenario the Central Powers can 'win', espeically if your playing as them and know what your doing
-The WW2 scenario is good enough I don't know of any issues I've encountered execpt Hitler 100% of time comes to power, (there is an event the player can choose which instead of Hitler coming to power communists can instead)
-Mods, firstly the AAR mod, which gives the player an extended timeline from 1914 until 1964
-Mod33 a French mod that gives new nations, new events, new units, new desicions, it is a very good mod, however the event text is in French, so it is also a way to practice your French
-Modern Day scenario, a very good mod, as it says you get a modern day scenario, with all new techs, all new Units, and a load of new events, not to mention all new leaders,
-And Finally Kaisrreich, firstly no 2 Kaiserreich games are the same, they always turn out different, in one the USA becomes Syndicalist (no communists), in another the Qing Empire re-unite China, in another game you might see an independent Siberia, chanes are you will see many of these in a single game, you might also see none
-Kaiserreich is an extremely interesting scenario, the Central Powers win WW1 and you believe that scenario, in fact it is done so well, to the point where I remember someone on the forums saying "I don't play Kaiserreich that ofter, but when I do, I forgot real History"

It's basically an improved Hearts of Iron II, extended timeline, you can activate events at will, and the research tree seems far better.

TLDR: It's a fun grand strategy at the top most level for every country in the second world war, from 1933 to 1964 (if I remember correctly)

In this game, you can play as FDR, the well known imperialist who conquered South and Central America in the early 1930s, and went on to pre-emptively invade Japan. His famous speech on the day of the invasion will be remembered as "No seriously, guys. I am a time traveller. Japan attacks us in late 1941. That's why I transferred the entire Army to the Marine Corps and based the entire US Navy in Guam." The Belgian Prime Minister, when questioned about his decision to build a massive line of backwards fortifications on the French border facing into his own country answered "The Germans don't actually stand much of a chance against the French and British in 1939 if the Maginot Line continues through Belgium." The Swiss Prime Minister, when asked why he devoted his country's entire GDP to Nuclear research and nuked Berlin in 1944 famously stated "♥♥♥♥ Hitler". tl;dr Alternate History is great.

ストラテジーゲームを楽しみたいという方なら強くお勧めしたい一本です。


Darkest Hour
DHはHoI2の開発終了に伴って放出されたEurope Engineをもとに構築された、いわばHoI2の亜種ですが、新たな開発チームによる膨大なバグ取りや新要素の追加、面倒な操作の自動化やUIの改良によってよりよいものに仕上がっています。
このゲームは戦争に特化したストラテジーゲームで、武力をもって生き残ることを目標とします。資源や労働力を割り振って軍隊を建設し、それを移り変わる戦局でどう活用するかが勝利の鍵となります。そのため内政要素はほとんどなく、あってもそれは戦争の道具でしかありません。


緻密に作られたゲームシステム
優れた点はやはり賢いAIでしょう。突出した部隊や、強襲上陸をかける部隊にはワラワラと集まって包囲をかけてきます。制空権・制海権の奪取を怠ると、すかさず爆撃・砲撃によって手痛い被害をうけます。兵力の配置が十分でない地域を敵軍は目ざとく発見し、そこから浸透されて戦線はいとも容易く崩壊、あなたの国の地図は簡単に塗り替えられてしまうでしょう。戦争シーンは文字通り手に汗握る展開で、油断は許されません。

次に素晴らしい音楽の存在です。全篇クラシックで壮大な音楽、戦争時・平時と雰囲気の異なったものが途切れることなく流れ続け、雰囲気を盛り上げます。サウンドトラックがはじめからゲームデータに内包されていて、いつでも聴くことができるのが隠れた魅力です。

他にも豊富なMOD(残念ながらリンク切れ・ファイル消失がちらほら)やイベント・ifシナリオなど、書ききれないほどの濃厚な要素が含まれています。それでいて容量は軽く挙動も安定していて、7段階のスピード調節のおかげでストレスを全く感じさせないつくりです。


有志の方の素晴らしい日本語翻訳も存在しています。
オスマン帝国の復活を夢見たことは? プロレタリア革命後の日本が歩む道は?
3B政策を完成させたくはないですか? もしもベルリンに三発目の核が落ちたら?

もちろん、Darkest Hourをプレイしよう!
