"Darkest hour is a finely-crafted strategy, standalone expansion for Hearts of Iron that offers, among other things, a brand new and improved map. Also, for the very first time...

88 / 100
"Darkest Hour is not just a spin off, it is the real heird of Hearts of Iron 2. A believable and dramatic walk trough the most epic and dramatic moments of the 19th century."

Absolute Games

83 / 100
"The only drawback of Darkest Hour is that it has only two starting points – 1914 and 1936. If you are completely new to the Hearts of Iron series, this is game you need."
