American Civil War The Blue and the Gray

Product Info

In AGEOD's American Civil War - The Blue and the Gray, players are military and political leaders trying to lead the troops of their nations (armies and fleets) to victory, in the midst of some of the toughest operations during those five years of wild campaigning throughout a divided nation.

Most of the individual years of campaign between 1861 and 1865 are playable via a separate scenario. Advanced scenarios will allow recreation of some yearly and/or theatre campaigns, and there will be of course the complete Grand Campaign covering the whole war.

Gamershall (German)
The reviewer mentions in the summary: - Good AI - Easy to learn interface and game but with high complexity - Sound and graphics are very nice done and add to the atmosphere of the game - Addicting for friends of strategy games and highly recommended, especially for those with an interest in the ACW.

Out of Eight Review
AGEod’s American Civil War is a very good strategy game and another feather in the cap for its developers

The Wargamer Review
(...) a serious contender, in my opinion, for Strategy Game of the Year. And it may also be the best Grand Strategic simulation of the Civil War ever devised. It combines a blessedly intuitive – yet actually rather complex – interface, marvelous depth-of-play, a compelling sense of epic drama, and a handsome, distinctive look that is also cunningly designed to add to the “period” atmosphere
