I love this game so much. The game play is so cool. I like when you get to use rifles with bayonets. The adrenaline rush you get is amazing. If you like 1st person shooters this is a game for you (of course you kinda have to like the Civil War). The graphics are pretty good. Its so cool hearing all the action around you like the cannons,Gatling guns,and all the other weapon shots. It feels as if you are in the war. I also like the realistic things like reloading. Those people that say it takes years and so much time to do well it doesn't. I just think there impatient no offense everyone. Overall I recommend it to those war game lovers. It was one of the BEST games i have EVER bought!!!!!!

Review Little details such as soldier morale and having (sometimes inept) message couriers make this truly realistic. Things can be going along fine during a battle, and suddenly one of your flanks takes a barrage of hits with no support. You have to forget the spoiled past of gaming when things went predictably the way they were laid out for you. In this sim, things can go seriously wrong with no warning, or a surge of positive support may emerge just when all hope is lost. It is a moving, changing environment - the way it should be...if you are a history buff who likes their gaming to be real and historically accurate (with all its faults and limitations), you should embrace this game whole-heartedly.
