Darkest Hour packshot image
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.

This game can run on a Geforce 4 MX440 which has 1-star rating, so… not so good 'Can you run it?' system.

And please be more careful. The video you put on there is a video of a mod of the game called 'Red Orchestra'. The good video (trailer) is the one at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9c67J4FZ6E 

All in all, not a bad game if you like strategies and country management. Also it has multiplayer ;D
