For a Civil War FPS (expect Medal of Honor meets "Gettysburg" the movie), this is actually a pretty good game. Much better that the History Channel's last attempt at the Civial War, but nothing ground breaking. Support AI is worthless but the period weapons handle fairly well and the level design and graphics look nice but the character design and graphics are weak. There are two segments of rail shooting, one firing a cannon from a ship and another shooting a Gatlin Gun from a train, both were pretty pathetic. Otherwise, I thought it was a great rental and I may buy used when it goes for under $25.

Just like all the other History Channel titles, this game is VERY EASY ! You can walk through the game on easy in about 90 minutes, then go back through it on hard and it takes about 2 1/2 hours. The graphics are horrible just like the others, the missions are very , very short just like the others. But if your looking to get that gamer score up, its about 650 points in less than 3 hours total.
Was a great game- really enjoyed it. The only problem was after playing for awhile it keeps throwing you back in the same checkpoint and would not proceed to the next mission. Not sure if I was a complete idiot or if there was a glitch in the game.
