Just like the first civil war game from the History channel it's fun to play. Tack on some interesting history pieces and you've got a few hours to kill.

If you expect more than 2 - 4 hours of game time don't bother, but if you're waiting for 'big' games or just want a little fun go ahead and rent it.

Something to be said for the change in shooting styles (even if the gameplay itself is rather 2003). You definitley can't run and gun with a muzzle loader.

Final word:

Not more than a 5 not less than a 5.

I expected to have a cool C.W. game. But this is what I got

graphics: This game was made in 2008, close to the air date of HALO 3,
you would expect it to have better graphics. graphics get a very bad 3.0

Gameplay: Pretty good. Better than Battlefield 2 that's for sure. But it says that its playable over xbox live and playstaiton network. but it's not.
it would be nice to play as the yanks because I'm a yank and I'm proud to be one. Gameplay gets a decent 6.5

Sound: The sound was hard to rate. The explosion sound is spot on but some times it sounds very bad to have 4 explosions, 12 people talking, 17 guns are being fired at the same time. Sound gets a good 7.3

overall: C.W. gets an average 5.6
