  • Excerpt: Date: 5/18/2006 If you’re interested in Take Command: Second Manassas, and since you’re reading this review I assume that you are, the first thing that you need to know is that this is not a Total War type of game set in the Civil War.

  • Summary: Self-professed hole-in-the-wall game developer MadMinute Games made quite a splash at the start of 2005 with Take Command: The Battle of Bull Run. Although the company may be a tiny outfit with just two core designers in Adam Bryant and Norb Timpko, both the game itself and the War3D engine that...

  • Cons: Very slow in comparison to typical RTS gaming, Presentation is generally lackluster

  • Conclusion: It's an excellent effort from such a small team who have delivered a deep and enjoyable game. However, it's not particularly accessible to newcomers to the genre, and remains firmly a brilliant choice for the hardcore wargammers.

  • Excerpt: Der er langt imellem perlerne for os historisk interesserede krigsspillere. Generelt set har de generiske og alt for ensformige real-time strategispil overtaget markedet, og mens de kan være meget morsomme og underholdende, er der sikkert mange, der ligesom jeg, længes efter noget mere varieret –...
