American Civil War Reviews

We’ve played the board game ACW Solitaire which this app is a good implementation. Faithfully recreates the game except for combat which is instant when forces move into an enemy area. The board game has a separate phase for combat after all movement. Game runs great and does everything the board game accomplishes. Really enjoying it. Takes a few turns to get used to the interface but goes smoothly after that.

A simple but deep strategy game. Very historical because the developer has done his homework. When we bought our iPhone, we were disappointed that this game was no longer available. But now its back!

This is a fun Civil War strategy game. Unfortunately, the victory conditions for the Union are unrealistic. We can capture all major Southern cities and destroy the CSA armies and still not win the game. It would be good if this is corrected along with adding more Union generals such as George H Thomas and Phillip Sheridan. Also, the Union should be able to build fortifications. That being said we still enjoy the game.

The game mechanics are ok. The game could be fun- BUT; the games’ combat algorithms are skewed wildly in favor of the confederates. Lee is given the highest rating of all the generals FROM THE BEGINNING- we would argue this was not the case early as the valley campaign demonstrates. Additionally, the southern troops were no better tactically early than the north. But due to the poor combat results modifiers, Lee wins over 90% of all his fights, regardless of opponent or even relative strength, or of the time of year. Also, is the south can build forts in every city, something impossible due to logistical constraints from 1861-1865.

This game isnt good enough to overcome politically correct censorship. Removed the Confederate flagon a Civil War game? F*** you.

The developer isnt even good enough to use the whole display. Its impossible to play. LOL Junk Deleted.

We’re just glad your later games improved over time.

Let’s just say… Very confusing.

We can forgive the bad graphics and terrible interface if this game were actually playable. Any time we even start to win, the game freezes and crashes. What an insult to the player. Avoid! Don’t waste your money.

No tutorial, odd unexplained controls, apparently only federal side to control….. Clunky and unresponsive interface….. This is a bad game! Sorry we paid for it….. Would give it no stars if we could. Stay with others for civil war strategy.

The controls are messy, the graphics are really bad, you can only play for the union, and we wish we could give this thing zero stars!!!
