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.

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"

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)

From landing on Normandy to get a foothold in France or Invading the United States to force them to surrender, this game has plenty of replayability. Take over the world in the name of Sweden or give the U.K. a taste of Liberty and Justice as the United States. I do recommend this.

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~

Grand Strategy,play every Nation from the USSR to Peru.Fight in WW1 ,WW2,even into the Cold War Era.
Realtime,pausable,with different Speeds.

Pros:
+++ Lots of Game Depth,Manage your Armies,Generals,Fleets,Air Wings,Ministers,Finance,Trade,Diplomacy.Hardly anything is missing.
+++ Events : historical Events trigger,you can decide if you want to follow History or create an alternate Timeline.Examples: Deny The Soviets their Share of Poland,abort the Attack on Pearl Harbor.
+ Control over internal Politics : You can play a moderate Nazi-Germany,or rekindle the Flames of british Imperialism and attempt to retake the lost american Colonies.
+ Armies and Generals gain Experience ,even develop new Perks
+ Extensive Research Tree: Hundreds of Units and Techs ,ranging from Subs,over encryption to Nukes.
+ Control over the Armies of Allies and Puppet States (If you wish)
++ Many Factors influencing Battles and Movement.
Night/daycycle ,seasonal and hourly Weather Patterns,Experience,added Special Brigades,Unit Types,Terrain,Morale,Envelopment,Supply.
Example: Warfare in Russia gets bogged down during Winter as everything is snowed in.

Cons:
- Timeconsuming , a game can last from one (Scenario) to several hundred Hours (Grand Campaign,World Conquest)



One of the best Grand Strategy Games
HOI2 +Addons and "Darkest Hour lite" are also included in this Deal.
