Summary: Pay no attention to the meta reviewers, they musta not got their palms greased like the other crap games they review and give 90's to like RTW. This is a great game. Must better than HOI of any level. It's turn based and the AI is better than HOI's anyday of the week. Definitely worth the money it costs now. Buy two copies, one for you and one for your friend.
Summary: The only sin of this sequel of the excellent and extremely addicting Making History Gold is to be released 1 month earlier. Most of the issues found in the first version where fixed in a few weeks. The game is now running much better (crashes fixed, performance optimized) and AI was very improved. Making History 1 had a simple presentation, but was very fun to play, specially if you download one of the dozens user-made scenarios.
Summary: What can I say about Making History? Interesting? Check. Realistic? Check. Fun? Check. Fun if you are interested in this genre, but if you are not you will find it a bore, but that is the same about anything. The Editor is completely equipped with it, and this is the main reason why it lost two points. The first is because the Edited is not fully Laptop supportive, as you cannot scroll down options easily in Editor.
Summary: When this game came out it was quite buggy but muzzy lane did a great job of cleaning all the major bugs up. For a game this complex you will have bugs but it's a matter of how the developer comes through in the end. This game is more then just a wargame simulation like the Hearts of Iron series. There are a multitude of other things that effect how your simulation will turn out.
Summary: Making History II is the most addictive Grand Strategy game I've played & well worth a try. The game has improved so much since its initial release it should be called Making History III. I'm going to give the game a 10 instead of 9 because of the way Muzzy Lane has continued to improve the game & listen to suggestions to improve the game, I've never known a company to do this so well done Muzzy Lane.
Summary: This game has come a long way from its release. All major bugs have been cleaned up by Muzzy Lane due to the caring they have for their customers. Even to this day, they're removing every last glitch, every minor problem in this game. They take extensive care and listen to every individual voice on the Making History forums. The game was very buggy at release, but that was due to Muzzy Lane releasing their game on the date they said it would be released.
Summary: I've tried a multitude of Grand Strategy games and this is the best one I've come by. Whether its the amazing attention to detail, the incredibly involved developers and community, or the feeling that you actually are a leader. Making History has become the Grand Strategy game of my heart, and impresses upon every level. The Developers have taken great care that the game is simple enough to pick up and have a good time.
Summary: I've played the game since release and watched it develop from an average game into a really fun game that ends up being a massive time sink for me. I can sit playing it for hours on end and wonder what the AI has planned because no two games play the same, even if you always do the same thing each time, the AI has it's own ideas, it may be a WW2 strategy game but it's you that decides how it should start and how it will end. As for technical problems?
Summary: While this is a game that undoubtedly deserved its initial reviews, I would advise any critics of of to get the game patched and play again. They will find a much different game than the one they played back then. The main issues that have been repeated are on the technical side. Frankly, on release, the game was nearly unplayable. THIS HAS CHANGED. Every single major bug and problem has been fixed, as well as significant upgrades to overall performance.
Summary: There are major technical problems with the game. To the point where the game is almost unplayable. The technical support by Muzzy Lane requires the user to download debugging software and perform tasks that a paid Quality Assurance Technician should be performing. Not only would I recommend against buying this game, I would avoid all titles developed by MLS.
