Very fun

I love this app because it has semi-detailed units and it is quite fun. Can someone explain the ai tactiics and how each varies?

    I enjoyed all the Civil war apps by DK, although the free Bull Run plays 4-5 times and hangs. An archive and reload seems to fix it. I played both sides multiple times of Gettysburg. I did comment to the author who was very responsive that the gray , especially artillery pieces are hard to see. It did take some practice moving pieces and understanding the artillery range and effectiveness. I did see some reviews in another forum who thought the South could do a run around and win by grabbing the hill objectives, but seems to be blocked off in this version as the North adequately defends all the positions. It is possible to completely annihilate the South. I tried multiple times to have the South hang in and annihilate the North after winning with the South, but attrition sets in. Good AI, recommend. Got more than my $2 worth experimenting with both sides and various tactics. Need more like this for us "older folks" who miss our Atari/Commodore 64 games and can't keep up with the new "stuff". Rommel was fairly good, but not as good as Gettysburg. I didn't get the hang of the Napoleonic games, need to take the penalty and call in the reserves earlier.

    Great

    Very similar to RISK with historic accuracy. Love to see the South take Gettysburg. Would LOVE to see more Civil War campaigns along this line!
