Summary: This is not a shoot-em-up action game. It's all about strategy and tactics, and in that regard this game delivers. The realism is quite good. Select which unit you want to command (regiment, brigade, division, corp, army) and join the battle. Lots of options and scenarios. Very addicting!
Summary: Take Command 2nd Manassas is an awful game. A total waste of money. The game glitches alot and sometimes just stops playing completely. There is to much going on in the game itself. Just the one battle is rather boring. I would strongly suggest to pass this one up and try a different game.
Summary: This product was better than I thought it would be. The battle scenarios are historically accurate and the game allows you to take command at various levels, with different commanders, and in both armies.
Summary: The developers were really on to something. Wish they would update it. Game is older (2004) and made for small screens. At Brigade and Division command levels you can really get a taste of battlefield action and effect the battles outcome with tactics.
Summary: this is a pretty nice game but, it tends to favor the comp. on some actions that allow more time for its movements (faster reaction time) when attacking and quicker loading time when defendind
Not for those in a hurry but for everyone with a little time and enthusiasm for realistic strategic civil war combat.

Summary: first off it must be noted that this game takes some tweaking to work on windows 7 and 8. i even had to do a little bit for vista. maybe the latest patch breaks the game. maybe you need to adjust the compatability or admin settings. you'll need to mess with these things and perhaps more.
