Nie dość, że gra jest tańsza niż Hearts of Iron 2 Complete (które notabene jest już w DH zawarte), to na dodatek:
- jest wzbogacona o mnóstwo wydarzeń historycznych,
- zaczerpnięty z późniejszej odsłony serii system decyzji,
- obejmuje lata obu wojen światowych i Zimnej Wojny do lat 60-tych,
- posiada ulepszoną względem swojego pierwowzoru mapę.

Dzięki temu, iż jest to praca modderów, dopracowujących silnik pod tym względem, Darkest Hour pozwala na jeszcze większą zabawę z modami.

Polecam.

With the 1.03 patch we have plenty of scenarios, including the 1945 one wich is fun to play !
In my opinion is better than HoI3 because is easier to learn and the UI is really friendly for new players . Unlike Hearts of Iron 3 you can have different aproaches on the game , based on your decisions , a communist Germany for example right from the beginnig of the 1933 scenario !

On the official forum you can find many mods wich can extend the regular timeline of the game , for example New World Order 2 mod ( a Cold War Mod ) and Modern Day scenario mod !
Alternate history:Kaiserreich (What if Germany had won the First World War )
Fatherland (What if Germany had won the Second World War )

All in all I really recommend Darkest Hour !

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~

Darkest Hour is definitely a better HoI game than HoI3, despite its age. There's no unnecessarily complex OoB system that you'd need to graduate West Point to master, there aren't a billion shapeless provinces in sparsely populated areas, and although the map and UI are pretty dated they're comfy to use. In contrast to the dryness of HoI3 which has maybe half a dozen decisions solely for the purpose of railroading the AI into doing what it's supposed to do, DH has plenty of dynamic event chains, and it feels like you're really impacting the world. DH also has more of a sandboxy feel to it, with different outcomes every game, but in HoI3 once you've played each of the 3 factions you've more or less experienced it all. Then there's the timespan, with a grand campaign in DH potentially lasting from 1914-1964, 50 years, compared to 1936-1948, or 12 years, in HoI3. And last, but definitely not least, DH is tremendously easier to mod than HoI3, and so has a very active and skilled modding community. Which brings me to my last point:

Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg. The amount of detail put into this alternate-history mod for Darkest Hour is pretty stunning, and is definitely a justification all on its own for buying the game. If you have even a slight interest in alt-history, you'd be doing yourself a huge favor by picking this up and installing KR.

The base game is easily a 9/10, but Kaiserreich bumps that up to a 10/10.

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.

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.

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

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.

11/10

The pinnacle of World War era grand strategy games with scenarios spanning approximately 1914-1960. An astounding amount of depth and possibilities will keep the game fresh for many, many hours of gameplay.

If you are determined enough, anything could happen; but what will the consequences be?

Low price with lots of content. 10/10.

Started in 1933 with the AI on "furious" setting. In a year, France attacked Germany, Germany attacked USA, Soviets attacked Poland, France attacked the Soviets. 10/10 would get blitzkrieged again

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.

Best version of Hearts of Iron II. Allows you to play the Great War, World War 2, and the Cold War.

Mod support is still strong and helps provide a fun experience which can last forever.

For me, this is the best Hearts of Iron experience. I enjoy playing with Darkest Hour Light mod which adds more options to the orginal gameplay, but doesn't change it too much. I would recommend buying this over the original, since this inclued also the orginal game (as you have option to play without mods) and the easy to use launcher lets you select higher resolutions for modern systems (instead of the old 1024x768 fullscreen).

Word of warning to Win8 users though. You need to play around with settings-file and play in windowed mode, because the full screen mode is not working properly (poor fps and sometimes mouse cursor missing).
