Hearts of Iron II - Doomsday

The Gamers Temple
13 December 2006
  • Excerpt: Send in the spies! Hearts of Iron II Doomsday could be considered to be Hearts of Iron II Plus because it pushes the gameplay of the original beyond 1946 all the way to New Year’s Day 1954. There’s more here though than a chance to keep your campaign games going for a bit longer. With the game’s extension into the 1950s, it throws early Cold War technology and espionage into the mix – the gameplay takes a decidedly different tack when you can start nuking your neighbors.

  • Summary: The addition of the extra eight years, new technology and the tweaks to the gameplay are all a welcome addition but the game is still lacking. The game still seems to end very abruptly even with the addition of the extra ten years and the addition of new technology as you are still only just getting everything together as you hit 1953 and the end of the game.

  • Excerpt: Hearts of Iron II: Doomsday may not be the casual gamer's best intro to the uberhardcore world of wargaming, but it's not half bad, either. If you're a n00b to the strategy wargame, then you might want to cut your teeth somewhere else. But if you're aching for some serious, strategic global warfare, then Hearts of Iron II: Doomsday might be worth your weekend. Get the full review from our shell-shocked reporter, Sean Hilliard.
  • Pros: ups: Deep, multi-faceted strategy that Grognards will love ...
  • Cons: downs: ... but strategy newbs won't.

Hearts of Iron II: Doomsday

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: The makers of Europa Universalis are making a bigger name for themselves on their Hearts of Iron franchise than that earlier Euro-centric title. The reason? My university professor can answer that. There is no topic more written about in the annals of modern history and historiography than the issue of World War II. It’s that popular and it’s no wonder Hearts of Iron has been so enduring since its first incarnation despite covering roughly the same topic.

GameSpot
11 April 2006
  • Summary: Doomsday heats up the Cold War with nukes and spies.
  • Pros: Longer campaigns allow for more-satisfying conclusions, Great Cold War flavor, with a nuclear race, spies, and military hardware specific to the era, Tremendous amount of content for an expansion pack, especially one retailing for under $20
  • Cons: Plays similarly to the original Hearts of Iron II, but with nukes, Graphics and audio are still extremely mediocre

Hearts of Iron II: Doomsday review

  • Conclusion: Some fans would feel short changed by purchasing this. The inclusion of the original full game to supplement a rather limited amount of additions gives a great value package, but only if you're new to the game.

Hearts Of Iron 2 : Doomsday

Tom's Games
17 March 2014
  • Summary: Doomsday est un stand-alone (c'est-à-dire une extension au jeu original qui ne nécessite pas ce dernier) de l’excellent Hearts of Iron 2. Il propose au joueur de prolonger jusqu’à 1953 la période initiale du jeu, qui s'étalait de 1936 à 1948, afin de goûter les affres de la Guerre Froide. Doomsday apporte certes son lot de nouveautés, mais qu’en est-il réellement par rapport au jeu original, déjà fort complet ?
