Rated 3 out of 10 by Darth Eclipse Good idea, bad execution
For many, many years I have wanted a first person shooter that you could play during the Civil War. I was very excited to hear about this game, so I downloaded the demo. The graphics are horrible. This would have been an amazing game about five or six years ago, but now the graphics just don't stand up to any other game out there. The storyline is almost as bad. You are standing around shooting indians when you get injured by in arrow through your crotch (OUCH!) Then some guy in some futuristic suit comes out of a spherical portal and takes you away. Then there is some lady known as "the mother" on some screen. You can only see her eyes so you have no clue who she is, but she explains your situation and then this guy shows you how to use some different weapons. Then you go back and "the mother" talks for a few more minutes and then you choose your mission and teleport there. So, I would definitely not recommend this game to someone, mainly because of the graphics and storyline. But nothing in it was very well done.
Rated 1 out of 10 by dgk49 worst game I have ever played
I bought this with high hopes and quickly found out I had wasted my money. I honestly don't know where to start with explaining all that is wrong with it. I had great difficulty with the fact that most of the action was at night and therefore was very difficult to see not only the enemies but everything and everything in general. I was always lost and trying to figure out what to do next. The mapping system left much to be desired along with trying to figure out the objectives even though they were clearly stated. One of the things that first appealed to me was the fact that I could use present day weapons in far past situations. That never happened and I understand that you had to earn that but still.... I really really tried to like this game but I finally gave up and took it back and got store credit for it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Antisora21 Really great but
This game is really good. Dont get me wrong this game is worth the money but it needs higher graphics. The graphics look worse that a nintendo 64 game. But besides how bad the graphics are this game is the best. If you like shooter games then this is a game for you. It is just a great idea of having to travel time with different weapons in each time. You could be fighting in world war one but have a futuristic weapon which you will need if you want to survive. Your goal is to save people in history but you can not kill them or its game over. The farther you get in the game the herder it gets but the funner it gets. A variety of weapons are all at your command if you find them at least. So overall this game is really good and i expect everyone to buy a copy of you love shooter games.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Douglas Among Us Nintendo 64 or xbox 360?
I'll be upfront with you, I haven't played the full game through. I tried playing the demo and just after the enormous load time, i realized that this is a disgusting excuse for a first person shooter. I looked exasperatingly at my xbox 360 and was surprised not to see a nintendo 64 sitting on my entertainment center. Why might you ask? Let me answer by asking another question.... Have you seen the graphics on this game? They are embarassing at best. I don't comprehend how someone can actually expect to get by with this. This coupled with the stupid plot and goofy looking future weapons gives me nothing but extreme displeasure at even the sight of the game. Maybe I'm being far too critical and it has an awesome story line but based on what the preview and the demo show, i doubt it,
Rated 8 out of 10 by looooooooooool A definite twist to your standard shooter.
Let me first off say the graphics for this game could pass for middle x-box era, but not now. The game shows a new challenge to most shooters, having to use the bad (or not so bad) weapons of that time period. Dang civil war musket! It kind of reminds me of timespliters, but a lot more realistic. The game was fun, and interesting, it also has a cool experance, so i would most likley recomend this game. If you are not so sure about buying this game, try the demo, that will give you a good experance with the game, and will most likley tell you if you like it or not. The game's story is great, and it allows you to see what the different wars, that most video games do not cover, would be like. So yah, atleast download the demo, and DEFINTLEY buy the game (if you like it)
Rated 3 out of 10 by witch hunter not what i expected
Whan I first heard about this game, I got excited to play it. About 4 months later, a kid at school gave this to me for a couple cheap games. I played it for the first time, it was ok. Kept playing it, got bored of it within a day. Why? Because it wasn't a good game. The graphics were terrible for a 2008 shooter game, the weapons were crappy. It just didn't make sense to have an assault rifle in the civil war. I know you played as a time traveler but assault rifles were not fare to all the other allies who had crappy rifles. The violence wasn't that realistic. This game is mainly rated m for language. I would reccomend cod world at war. Darkest of days isn't that good. I'm sure that this game could of been a way lot better than it is. Not what i expected.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Phis213 Plain and simple!
The storyline is awesome but the graphics are terrible. I mean at first me when I read about the game I was very interested. But once I played the game, I was disappointed and wanted my money back. What a waste! The only good thing that came out of this game was the fact that you were going back to time with today’s' weapon. I also liked the fact that I was in the civil war fighting the confederates =) The scenes I played on World War 1 and World war 2 remind me of the first call of duty. Why? As I said before the graphics were terrible! It reminds me of the PS1 and the first XBOX!!! I just played this game for about 3 hours and then turned it off. It will collect dust with your old games. Don’t and I repeat myself don’t waste your money on this game.
Rated 0 out of 10 by clue less? Sounds Awsome.
I dont have many details to work on with this game, but from the decreptions, it sounds like it'll be a really fun game. Now im a person who loves good grapics but i dont need them, and i hate people who trash a good and fun game because it dosent have the best grapics. And im not sure if this game will have good grapics proply not because of the price. But i've always wanted to know what it would have been like to join the civil war with a modern day assult rifle. Plus you get to fight in many differnt battle in differnt times againt new enemies each time. that Just sounds fun and entertaining to me. but from the way it sounds im not sure if it will have a campaign. but i keep an eye out for this one....;P
Rated 6 out of 10 by bonesthebomb read this review
Okay, honestly, this game isnt that bad. whats the worst thing about it is that the graphics and sound are terrible. Also, the story is very confusing and very hard to follow. And, theres no way to skip videos either, and that wierd lady (i cant even remember names) talks for like, 5 minutes before you can select your mission. On the good side, however, is that this is the only real civil war game there is. Aswell as world war 1 and the trojan war. Plus, getting the acheivements isnt that hard either. In my opinnion, this games price should be swapped with gears of war, as GOW deserves the 29.99 price tag.
Rated 7 out of 10 by CrackinCody Re-THINK
Honestly, this game is pretty good. Don't always listen to the reviews. Yes, the audio doesn't really match the animation of the mouth, AI don't like to help you out, but there are alot of pluses too. The engine itself allows over 500 people to attack you from across a field, which is a first that i've ever seen. The gameplay is really what keeps this game together. People may hate it, but I love it. I recently talked with an engineer that worked on it, he says don't expect a sequel anytime soon. So buy it!
