Rated 9 out of 10 by Eddie J Actually Good !!!
I love history and I love gaming, but don't think they could go together good. Well this game surprised me. It was actually not that bad as it sounds. Grahpics were great and the gameplay was familiar, it was kind like playing COD but in the Civil War). Another good thing is that you get a lot of information about what when on in the Civil War. Like I didn't know that their were snipers back then and that they had some form of a gernade. Their are some bad things about the game. One thing that got on my nerves is that I heard the same dialoge fifty times in one mission. Voice acting in this game isn't great. AI can use some work in this game. If I could use a knife in this game I could probably get through the game with just that. What got on my nerves the most was that the enemys won't even take cover half the time, they would just run up to you and atart bashing you on the head with their weapon. All and all this was a good game.
Rated 1 out of 10 by XBOX Ruler Terrible Game
This game is just a waste I am glad that I rented the game and not bought it. This game is just terrible in all aspects, first the graphics are just plain terrible every thing looks very bland and stale the sound is very generic in this game nothing special there. The play control is really terrible in this game you have no control over the solider its like he is walking on ice he slip all the time the shooting part is also bad you aim at person and shoot they don't die the just stand there and shoot you back. I shot 6 rounds of a pistol into one solider and he did not die. This game is also has a very bad story line of secret war missions that you have to fight in I thought that this was going to be big battles with hundreds of on screen soldiers but instead you just fight a few soldiers here and there. Very bad game!
Rated 10 out of 10 by sh00tingf4n4tic AMAZING!!MUST BUY!!!!
Honestly, this game is the best game I've played. IVE PLAYED all the shooting games COD4, Gears, Halo 3, Bad Company and this game is SOOOO much better than them. Think civil war you get to fight and live your battles. Honestly, I've never been into history at school, but after playing this I've begun to pay attention and I have taken great interest in history now. Also, I'm now into the history channel which I never was before. The weapons, battles, voices, sounds, acting EVERYTHING is so amazing I've never had this enlightening of an experience with a video game before. Forever, will I remember this game and play it. Also, I've started playing it with my other members of my family and they also enjoy the experience as much as I do and maybe even more. Bottom line: Great, Amazing game, HIGHLY recommend.

Rated 9 out of 10 by Umpire25 Wonderful
This is a fun game. It is very fun to play the weapons are realistic and it is no too hard once you play it on easy you get a hang of the concept. You can advance rank and unlock quite a few acheivments which will keep you busy after you beat the game. I could not put this game away it was awesome. I recommened this to anyone that gets bored of the same old WWII games. The levels are historically accurate so there is some realism. The weapons are very cool and there are many of them if you play for a few hours strait for a week or two you should be able to complete the game and get most of the acheivments. The History Channel outdid themselves in making this game. They took a good chance and it paid off. Try out this game if you want to entertain yourself
Rated 10 out of 10 by Marine21097 Awesome
I have played many of the first person shooters(cod, halo, gears of war,medal of honor, and all the other great titles) and am a fan. I also LOVE the civil war so when they combined i was like OH MY GOD!!!!! like others, i too thought there was going to be thousands vs thousands of soldiers, but that's alright. The graphics could have been better, but they were not bad. The A.I. is just like CW: A Nation Divided. The (ally) soldiers pop out of thin air and run straight into the line of fire and die over and over again in a never ending process.I wish they payed attention to the characters like other games. For example in the end of CoD4 i know people who nearly cried when Capt. Price died (obviously they were big fans).One last thing is if it takes say 7 shots to kill a man and you shoot 6 shots the character shows NO reaction at all. I know there are a lot of cons in here and this thing was supposed to make CW:SM look good in the eyes of readers but that's for the people who want to know what it has. Its an overall AWESOME game and if you dot mind any of the previous cons the BUY IT!!!!!!! P.S. And to you idiots out there the reloading is "too slow" because its the CIVIL WAR! 1860s for God sakes.
Rated 10 out of 10 by dorkyness619 to anyone who says this is a terrible game...
This game is not meant for everyone and to really enjoy it, it helps if you appreciate things that really did happen in the specific locations in the game. I really liked how the events were real and researched by the history channel. Now it seems they didnt really try hard with the graphics but they still managed to capture the realism of southern weather and envirements. I can back that up because i live in lynchburg virginia wich is were alot of the war was fought. Now for gameplay. The controls are greaat and are similar to that of cod series. They are really smooth and easy to get used to. The weopens are all basicaly different and each might be able to carry more ammo, or do more damage. Also you can get ability points to apply damage or more health or more ammo. The game is really hard and will have you playin for a good week if you have a life. Possibly 3 days haha. Normal is hard enouph and i wouldnt play on hard ever. The weopens are historic and real. The loading is accurate to the way they really loaded like using ramrods and muzzle loading. The ai is really smart and has inpecable aim. They unlike other games dont care if you have a family back home or a wife that loves you but will hit you on target. They charge fast shoot streight and can and will kill you atleast once in every level. take my advice and buy this game
Rated 7 out of 10 by strayrogue fighting behind enemy lines is too devious
i have had this game for nearly 2 years now. i am a histori fanatic and a lover of shooter games. i really like this game with all the antique fire arms and the historical landmarks. this game is great for some one interested in the civil war and likes to fight with ancient guns so histori lovers you should want to buy this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by NoBama2012 Pretty Good
I bought this game yesterday and i amalready loving it! The campaign is fun and it has some pretty fun levels. The graphics are on the high end of average. The only down side to me is that when you kill someone, their body disappears iin 3 seconds. Other than that it is great.
