Strategy and Tactics
19 September 2013
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: 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 game, much like Pride of Nations and others that use the same engine are frustratingly, mind-meltingly complex. Every conceivable detail is taken into account, and I literally spent several days trying to understand the interface (I still do not fully understand it).
Summary: When the game arrived it did not contain a game instruction manual inside. I realize that the game may have a tutorial on the disc, but I couldn't get the game to load up on my Windows XP computer. I owned this game a year ago but lost it in our move.
Summary: This is a tactical real time strategy game. It is challenging and fun. You control regiments on up to entire Corps. It is not a clickfest like some RTS games can be. The graphics are good and the maps, scenarios, units, unit capabilities, commanders, and commander skills are historically accurate.
Summary: I've played all types of historically accurate games, and I've also played ones that have been just junk. Take Command: 2nd Manassas is definitely not one to be known as crap. The game which is good for computer platforms Windows XP and above plays pretty quickly.
Summary: I love this game! (this is the only game I have even thought of writing a review about, I love it that much!) I have been playing board and computer wargames for 20 years. This is by far the best Civil War PC game on the market today.
Summary: Really good game, realistic, historically accurate, graphics acceptable even if it's not the main issue in wargames. Challenging, need few games to be fully comfortable with the interface and the units managing (especially at high level of command : corps and army) , after that really rewarding.
Summary: one hell of a strategy game set in the middle of the 19th century. It involves the struggle between the north & south & differences of opinion. From 1864 to 1868 more Americans died than in any thieter of war.
