Darkest Hour differs from Arsenal of Democracy (2010), the other modded product of Hearts of Iron II (2005) in that it expands the total number of provinces and functions as a fully moddable core. While improving Hearts of Iron II, Darkest Hour also includes a number of historical scenarios ranging from Operation Overlord to The Great War (World War I). Although it lacks the Indo-Pakistani War of 1947 or the 1948 Arab-Israeli War offered by Arsenal of Democracy, Darkest Hour provides one of the greatest user modifications ever made -- Kaiserreich.

Available for download on the Paradox forums, the Kaiserreich mod follows the "Legacy of the Weltkrieg." In this scenario, Wilhelm II secured victory in the First World War causing the Allied Powers to fall into disarray, and rendering the Nazis and their rise to power null. Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States all experience turmoil and strife offering the player a large number of decisions -- the UK turns socialist, the US becomes fragmented... Mittelafrika is ruled by Hermann Göring... it's all very engaging.

During my playthrough as Romania in both Arsenal of Democracy and Darkest Hour, Darkest Hour kept most historically accurate during the 1936 Road to War campaign. However it should be noted that Slovakia is formed almost always in Arsenal of Democracy.

I highly recommend Darkest Hour to the armchair general sort of strategy fan. Its successor, Hearts of Iron III, is unfortunately bogged down with unnecessary complexity with an Order of Battle organizational structure that leaves users micromanaging at all times.

Great standalone mod for Hearts of iron 2. Darkest Hour has tons of mods and now thanks to the devs officially releasing 1.03 you can now play all of the great ones available for this game(without the hassles of independently updating your game). hundreds of events and different ways of reliving history. This game will give you many hours of good old strategy. 10/10

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)

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.
