  1. Fun game, but more would be nice
    by Karl F. Davie Burgdorf, USA - Dec 12th 2015

    The Civil War series of games is fun to play and can be challenging but there is much to be said for more realistic and in-depth combat. I found the game fun to play and a throwback to the early strategy games I love(d). That's why it gets 4-stars. On the other hand, I would like to see more in the types of units and the types of weaponry. The Civil War was nothing if not complex and I would like to see the game be more reflective of that.

  2. Kurzweiliges Spiel - nicht mehr - nicht weniger
    by Tintifax, Austria - Oct 31st 2014

    Als Spiel so zwischendurch ganz nett, aber nicht weltbewegend.

    [As a game so in between quite nice, but not earth shattering.]

  3. Love all these Civil War games
    by bill florio, USA - Aug 26th 2014

    Love this game ! I can play this for hours. Better than most games costing a lot more.

    Got me so interested in the history of the war that I even bought some books about the battles.
