    Have any of you guy played this? What is it like? I have it, but I don't want to install unless I know it is good.

    I couldn't get it to work on my parent's computer when I was at home last.

    It's OK. Fight specific battles (ie, Little Roundtop, Picketts Charge, etc). Would be great except there is no option to fight all 3 days straight thru so it plays like fighting 6 consecutive scenarios.

    On the plus side, they did release a WinXP patch long after the game fell by the wayside. Good support.

    It was pretty decent. But like Zmphyr said, it just doesn't feel right when you can't fight the entire battle from start to end.

    My fav Civil War game will always be Gettysburgh by Talonsoft (battlefield series I believe).

    It is a RTS, you can't build units or buildings, just real stategy.
    It was one of my favorite games... Until I broke the CD, I can't buy it anywhere either. :sigh:
