Description

International trade, religious and cultural strife, military campaigns, diplomatic negotiations... here, you control it all. MAKING HISTORY II: The War of the World gives players the power to take full control of any world nation, colonies, regions, cities, and military units during the time leading up to and during the Second World War. Armchair generals and fans of grand strategy can take their turns building great empires or protecting the world from tyranny during these pivotal moments in world history.

In addition to nation-level trade and diplomatic concerns, you are tasked with managing region and city-level projects, choosing the right technologies to research, directing military movement and development, conducting international diplomacy, maintaining domestic stability and producing resources vital to making everything else possible. Developing production and research facilities in Cities transforms them into centers of industry and technology. Upgraded cities can produce new units and unlock advanced technologies. At the region level, you can build large-scale defensive structures such as radar arrays and fortifications, develop transportation infrastructure, and expand the resource production needed to fuel your economy. Victory on the world stage will require that all levels of your empire work together towards your goals.

Every turn offers countless decisions and options to move forward, writing the history of your empire. Will you block trade routes with your navy, choking off enemy supplies? Will you grant a restless ethnic or religious group independence to prevent widespread revolt? Will you build up your trade agreements and expand your influence with industrial might, or invest in an expensive, technologically advanced army to crush all opposition? In addition to keeping domestic and economic plans on track, you will be challenged by outside powers - Controlled by human players in a multiplayer match or period-inspired AI - that will pursue their own national agendas and interfere in the affairs of you and your allies. A shifting political and economic landscape keeps world powers busy adjusting plans, preparing for inevitable clashes.

No two games of MHII will be the same as there are an unlimited number of ways to achieve your goals. The choices you make determine the history of your nation. Whether that history will speak of a liberator or a conqueror is up to you.
  • Control hundreds of different land, sea and air units that represent historic vehicles and weapons used by major and minor powers of the era.
  • Research an array of weapon systems and tactical improvements that allow upgrades for existing forces and structures to match advancing technology.
  • Fly bombing missions against industrial and military targets or establish air patrols over enemy regions.
  • Manage an extensive economic system covering production of resources, domestic food consumption, and international trade.
  • Initiate infrastructure projects that modernize your nation and expand your economic potential.
  • Construct factories and research facilities that increase the power of your nation or sabotage and destroy the buildings controlled by your enemies.
  • Battle an intelligent AI that instigates, reacts and adapts to the changing game dynamics, generating action on the home front and abroad.
  • Encounter unique nations, each with their own characteristics that influence behavior.
  • Discover diverse populations divided by culture, ethnicity, religion and political ideology; factors that destabilize nations, provoking revolts, coups and civil wars.
  • Develop your colonies, liberate captured nations, establish puppet states or annex enemy territories.
  • Engage in espionage and interfere in the internal affairs of your neighbors.
  • Play any nation on a beautifully rendered 3D world map.
  • Enjoy a new, innovative multiplayer system that greatly reduces the obstacles to long-term games.
  • Plus much more!

  1. Repackaging of Paradox Interactive's Hearts of Iron II
    by G-Briggs, USA - May 31st 2015

    Great game if you are familiar with Hearts of Iron II. There is a lot of trial and error and the complexity can be frustrating to figure out, but that is what made it so fun for me. There are some minor glitches, but all in all a good game.

  2. Interesting Concept
    by Elias Chapelle, USA - May 9th 2015

    An interesting concept marred by too much complexity and not enough information given to understand how to play. Making History II will remind you of games such as Europa Unversalis; highly complex and difficult to get into. However, unlike the EU series, there is little historical context to wrap your head around, no instructions, and no tutorial. You might give up after futile attempts to understrand the game as I did. Worse, there seems to be a problem with how this game actuslly operates: it uses Java which has been a problem on many versions of Mac OS. If you want to play this game make sure you download and install the appropriate version of Java for your Mac OS. Apple does not do this automatically anymore because of security issues with Java.
