Deep Strategy For Hardcore Armchair Generals

GIN
9 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Making History II is freshly out on the Mac, but the PC version is also completely redone to the point that we are considering it a whole new game, and you probably will too. When the game originally came out, it was a find deep strategy title, but with quite a few flaws. In short, it seemed like it was rushed to market, and with a game like this, rushing is never a good thing.

  • Conclusion: Until Muzzy Lane gets a full patch Blitzkrieg fired up for Making History II to iron out bugs, smooth over the rough edges and plug those crashes you’re better off sticking with the first game in the series. That’s if you’ve the stomach for a grand strategy spanning the globe, as this is no picnic for a gamer that prefers their battlefields fast hitting.

Crysis 2

  • Conclusion: 2011 is looking to be a hot year for shooter fans what with a jam-packed Fall and Winter season coming up but Crysis 2 may just be what you will keep coming back to for the rest of the year. An exceptionally enjoyable singleplayer campaign is married to a well thought-out multiplayer component that is just as addicting as Call of Duty ever was.

GameSpot
2 July 2010
  • Summary: There is a time and a place for fanciful alternative histories, but not in a detailed game that limits its scope to one decade of human history, and not when they emerge seemingly at random. Making History II: The War of the World, a turn-based strategy game, tries to simulate the political, economic, and military challenges of the Second World War but instead dumps you into a wacky grand-strategy sandbox where everything seems to go horribly wrong.
  • Pros: Detailed demographics depict diverse peoples to destroy, Every country on the planet is playable
  • Cons: Crash-prone and buggy, International politics have rarely been so random, Simplistic, uninspiring combat, Laggy and unresponsive, Prolonged exposure can cause rage, despair, and more crashes

  • Conclusion: Machen wir es kurz und schmerzlos. Making History II: The War of the World macht einfach keinen Spaß. Das unübersichtliche Interface, die ständigen Hänger im Spielverlauf, das Chaos auf dem Schlachtfeld - zu viele Faktoren, die negativ auf das Spiel einwirken. Zudem fehlt ein Tutorial, viele Aktionsmöglichkeiten sind verwirrend und und und...
  • Pros: Erzählung des Zweiten Weltkriegs kommt ganz gut an
  • Cons: Zu schlichte Grafik, Weltkarte unübersichtlich, Zahlreiche Bugs, Unausgeglichen, sprich kein ordentliches Balancing, Tutorial fehlt

Making History II: The War of the World (PC)

Game Review Database
24 February 2011
  • Summary: "Sicher nichts für "Command&Conquer"-Freaks und Strategen mit Hang zu "Action-Strategy-Games". Eher was für Generäle der alten Schule. Wenn man sich also nach einem Strategiespiel mit einem größeren Hang zur Management der Nation zum zweiten Weltkrieg umguckt, führt kein Weg an „Making History II“ vorbei.

  • Conclusion: Kaum ein anderes Spiel hat es geschafft, sich im Vergleich zum Vorgänger nicht nur nicht zu verbessern, sondern auch fast noch schlechter zu werden. Auf dem Markt gibt es wirklich dutzende Strategiespiele, von denen sich Muzzy Lane ruhig eine Scheibe hätte abschneiden können. Wieso auch immer, hat das Entwicklerteam darauf verzichtet und bleibt der eigenen Linie treu.
