Exceptional. I only wish the modders would keep putting out more updates. That being said its the best Grand Strategy game ever made. Endless replay value. Countless "What if" potential to remake history.

Damn, this game is so good. It was the first Paradox game I ever tried, and although there is a "learning curve", the events and gameplay compesate for any incovience and awkwardness in the begginning. Also, the mods (e.g. Kaiserreich, NW2) add another touch to the game, especially Kaiserreich, with it's alternate WWI theme.

I find this game better than Hearts of Iron 3. I always was very found of Hearts of Iron 2, and this game makes it better. If you're a fan of grand strategy games and of games based on the World Wars, then this is a must buy. One of the best time wasters on steam.

This game is great.
More content than Hearts of Iron II.
I can play in full HD resolution with Windows 8.1 64 bit, but there are some laggy issue, however.

If you have many "what if" questions about the Great War and the Second World War. Buy this game and you won't regret.

It's a good remake of Hearts of Iron 2.
If you think there is not enough content you can just download some mods like Kaiserreich,1914 or Fatherland.
The game isn't the most beautifill,but looks decent.
The interface is not userfriendly but you can get used to it in like 15 minutes.
If you like challenge you can play as a small country like Guatemala or play as a big one like Germany.
It's a great game overall,not perfect just great.
Also Germany took over Greece.
It's a 8.5/10 game

The tutorial to this game is terrible so the game is hard to get into, though even if it had as good a tutorial as EU4 the game would still be hard to get into. If you want to learn this game the only way is to play the game as some easy nation. You may feel useless at the start, but it is truly a great game when you learn it.

Out of all the games I play, strategy mostly, this has to be the worst. Parts of the game can really bug you, like the constant wave of messages, aswell as the random chances, which annoys me. I had an army of 8 defeated by 1 little tank batallion, and get decimated, it made me so angry, I don't recommend the game for these reasons.

This is a fantatsic game, especially with the Grand Campign mod. You can take weeks to get even started into WW2 and the economy managment seems seocnd to none. It is complex and takes a while to learn but once you have the depth of startegy is great.

I will say it now, this game is not as easy as the UI makes it look. Lots of strategy and knowledge must be used or you will be overun quickly. If you struggle playing civ 5 you will not enjoy this game. Though that in itself is a good thing, this game will take time to master but it is like chess, most people can play it straight away, perfection takes time.

If you are a casual gamer used to simple strategy or Fps this maybe isnt a game for you.

But if you are an armchair general than you will love it!

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 it is much less complex and much, much easier to follow
-Graphically compared to HOI II it is a massive improvement. However, I also think that compared to HOI III it looks much better, but thats just my opinion, you should look at screenshots if graphics are important to you

-I find the game to be Historically accurate, with interesting scenarios that can happen, caused by the player or sometimes not caused by the player at all.

-The WWI senario also has an interesting amount of choices which no matter who you're playing as will have an interesting affect to the game as a whole, and are plausible

-The WW2 scenario is pretty good though I always want to think of alternate events that can happen etc. etc. and there are certainly some missed oppertunities, but nothing major.

-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 often, but when I do, I forget real History"

This is THE BEST GAME EVER.
Firstly, even excluding mods it covers:
- WWI
- WWII, including a two pre-war startdates
- Beginings of Cold War/post WWII restructuring of the world stage.

Second, the features are awesome. You can trade and claim land, determine your government type, install puppet nations, preform espionage, and found alliances.
It has a boat-load of events and decisions, too. And they are not deterministic, the game is not a complete sandbox, but it has several alternative paths, nations, and events for several senarios.

Best of all, its entirely moddable, and has some amazing mods. It has mods to improve each senario and even a killer mod to add in Cold War Senarios and events.

And the best thing? Its still being worked on~

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)
