Hearts of Iron II - Doomsday

The Gamers Temple
24 March 2007
  • Excerpt: Date: 5/30/2006 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Summary: The biggest complaint fans of Hearts of Iron II had was that is just wasn’t quite a long enough game. Sure, it spanned the entirety of WWII with oodles of detail, tons of strategy goodness, and enough technological and diplomatic options to make my head spin, but for many the hard-stop date happened...

  • Summary: Even though wondering "What if?" has always been a popular pastime for armchair generals, Paradox Interactive has stayed away from speculation. Franchises such as Europa Universalis and Hearts of Iron feature authenticity so precise that you often feel like you're paging through a textbook.
  • 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

  • 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. Besides all this,

  • 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.
