By fans, for the fans,

Developed by a team of experienced modders from the Paradox forum, Darkest Hour is a stand-alone Hearts of Iron game featuring a mixture of short and in-depth campaigns set across the darkest chapters of the 20th century, from the outbreak of the Great War up to the onset of the Cold War. Darkest Hour will introduce a new artificial intelligence that is now able to react to hundreds of different situations simultaneously, along with a dynamic diplomatic system that will allow the player to have a real impact on the course of history.

Darkest Hour will release on the 5th of April for download through all major digital download partners.

My favorite of its kind together with Victoria 2, but not so heavy for the PC. I mostly like its exact maps (unlike HoI3) and easygoing gameplay.

Iron Cross is MUCH better than Darkest Hour, unless you just want to try a WW1 game. But then Paradox still thinks that HOI3 was worth it hahahahahahaha.
