Making History II: The War of the World has done very well with critics and gamers alike and it’s hard to find a more auspicious time to try the game for yourself!”

Making History II: The War of the World(MHII) allows players to experience grand strategy on an epic scale as they take World War II history in their own hands and reshape the destiny of nations. National leaders will contend with competing military, economic and ethnic interests as they fight to fulfill each country’s aspirations. More than simply winning battles, MHII is about exercising diplomacy and waging war. Each turn, players generate income, conduct research, develop the natural resources within their borders, grow their industry and build military forces.  Ultimate success requires smart strategic decisions in combat, but also in the management of the economy and the country’s resources.  Diplomatic choices realistically affect a nation's status and reputation.  The turn-by-turn nature of the game allows players time to plan and judge how each move might affect long-term consequences.
