Gettysburg

Author File Description
tontonnoy In July of 1863, General Robert E. Lee's Army Of Northern Virginia of 75000 men and the 97000 man Union Army Of The Potomac under General George G. Meade met, by chance, when a Confederate brigade sent forward for supplies observed a forward column of Meade's cavalry. Of the more than 2000 land engagements of the Civil War, Gettysburg ranks supreme. Although the Battle of Gettysburg did not end the war, nor did it attain any major war aim for the North or the South, it remains the great battle of the war. Here at Gettysburg on July 1863, more men actually fought and more men died than in any other battle before or since on North American soil.

This is a great scenario that really makes you think about when and how to fight.

Playability: 5
Very interesting to play, I will probably even go back and try to replay it with a different strategy.

Balance: 4
The designer has achieved a very elegant balance of opposing forces, this is not one of those games were you can just build up a large enough force to crush your enemy's. The only downside being that with a little thought it is quite possibly to go on the defensive and simply hold out forever.

Creativity: 5
Not really a lot of trigger tricks but this scenario has a extremely creative use of units and resources. Almost every building and unit has a real effect on the final outcome and that is really what makes this a fun scenario to play.

Map Design: 4
The map was also well done and somehow just feels right for a battle of the civil war era.

Story / Instructions: 4
Simple and effective instructions with a small history lesson thrown in.

Playability was nice. It took me an hour to win, but it was interesting enough for me to play the entire thing in one go.

Balance: 4
Unit balance was nice. Also the timing of the attacks was perfect. Of course the lack of units was an issue, but overall I think the skirm-hussar combo was decent enough.Resource allocation was exceptionally good.

Creativity: 3
Creativity was good, though not exceptional

Map Design: 3
Decent but lacked something, probably hills and a few water bodies.

Story/Instructions: 4
Was straight forward. Not too complex, but not too catching either.

Additional Comments:
Overall- A job well done.

dietermoreno No screen shots so I don't know what to expect.

I'll download it any way because I love American Civil War.
