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: 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.

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.

  • Excerpt: Die Optionsfülle macht klar: Doomsday ist für Profis gedacht. [Quelle: ] Ein Jahr nach Erscheinen des Hauptspiels folgt nun das eigenständig lauffähige Add-on Doomsday. Es ist genau wie Hearts of Iron 2 ein äußerst komplexes Echtzeit-Strategiespiel im Szenario des Zweiten Weltkriegs. Doomsday geht jedoch zeitlich ein paar Schritte weiter und behandelt auch die Anfänge des Kalten Krieges zwischen West und Ost.

  • Excerpt: Двадцатая армия едва прорвала кольцо, а дармоеды в танковом корпусе опять требуют продовольствия. Где ж его взять, если третий конвой кряду топят англичане! Видать, тоже снюхались с американцами. Ученые седьмой месяц не в силах придумать толковый истребитель, а шпионы гребут деньги лопатой и не способны украсть ничего, кроме бесполезных доктрин. А тут еще и редакция просит написать какой-то обзор...
