"Wouldn't it be nice though if for once we had a turn-based strategy game that was not only complex and deep but also looked great? Well maybe we can have it all as Birth of America not only plays a great game but also has a visual style that few in the genre can even come close to."

"I think there are two types of people who would be entranced by this game: those who are fascinated with this period of history, and those who think the specific strategic challenge of fighting in a large area with only a few troops is interesting. "

Birth of America could have easily been a generic game set in 18th century North America by virtue only of graphics and text. Instead, the developer created gameplay to fit to the nuances and peculiarities of these wars, and the hard work paid off. The playerís role is limited at the strategic level, but depth of factors influencing outcomes necessitates thoughtful decisions that make Birth of America a unique and enjoyable game.

Overall, Birth of America features the best grand strategic gameplay Iíve seen since Europa Universalis,(...). Any self-respecting fan of strategy and war games should pick up Birth of America, as it delivers the whole package strategy fans desire." "Probably the best grand strategy game out there
A stunningly beautiful game which covers a period lacking much prior attention. Super AI and very challenging, yet also easy to jump right in and play. All the factors of warfare in the era (leadership, logistics, population control, and so forth) are included. If you have any interest at all in this time, buy it and prepare to write off all your spare time. It is that good!
an excellent, original wargame about the American Revolutionary War, one that utilizes the best elements of boardgame presentation without overly abstracting from the actual gameplay.
