Making History II: The War of the World (MHII) gives players the power to take full control of any world nation during the time leading up to and during the Second World War. Armchair generals and fans of grand strategy can take their turns building great empires or protecting the world from tyranny during these pivotal moments in world history. Players can control International trade, military campaigns, diplomatic negotiations, and more.
Economic historian and policy icon Niall Ferguson, who collaborated on the game, is a leading proponent of the concept that economic and ethnic instability play key roles in creating and sustaining major conflicts. The grand strategist must consider those elements in addition to military planning, and so Making History II incorporates these ideas into its gameplay to offer players a more complete grand strategy experience.
The game can be downloaded immediately from Muzzy Lane’s own Gaming Headquarters website,http://making-history.com, and from premier online locations such as Steam, Direct2Drive, and GamersGate, among others. A free 50 turn demo is also available.
