5.0 out of 5 stars Wargamers heaven 8 Feb 2006
By A Customer
Divided Nation is a hard game to master, with armies of 30,000 troops at your disposal you will have to have a masterly grasp of tactics to win over the enemy general in an epic battle like Gettysburg or Shiloh (and all the most important battles are here).
For the history buff this is unmatched, accurate battlefields and armies with seemingly hundreds of different uniforms and dozens of guns, delivered to their posts by horses and limbers with lots of lovely detail. The mexican armies of Santa Anna are especially stunning as they assail the Texans in the Alamo fort.
The random map singleplayer/multiplayer game is very much in the classical RTS mould, and has a great range of buildings, units, upgrades and research available, and gives you the opportunity to fight some massive battles against opponents by lan or internet.
Not the newest engine, and the game is complex to understand and learn (though the manual is excellent), but once it is mastered there are real depths of strategy and tactics for even the most demanding player

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Civil War Game Ever 19 Mar 2006
By A Customer
I have waited for this game for a long time as I am very interested in the American Civil war and collect civil war bullets. After many hours of play I can only say ,this is one of the best games ever. Historically it is very accurate . The campaigns mode is best, all the great battles are here. Gettysburg , Antietam , Shiloh , The Crater at Petersburg and many others. It is so detailed ,for example dismounted Union cavalry firing the breach loading Spencer or sharps carbines which have a greater fire rate but shorter range than infantry rifles. Field hospitals with medics treating the injured troops. All the main types of Artillery being loaded and fired and moved about by their own limber team. If you have played Cossacks you should get the hang of this game without many problems, and if not it is well worth reading the manual and taking time to learn all you can from it. One word of advice would be to turn the speed of the game down at the Menu when you start a game , Select slow and put it about three quarters up. I would have liked more camera views the two are changed by the L key to Far and near but having said that it is a small complaint.
A Fantastic Game and great fun , Very addictive so can lead to late nights. I’ve played lots of strategy games but this is by far the best . AN ABSOLUTE MUST BUY for all Civil war enthusiasts .

4.0 out of 5 stars Yet another new slant on a successful theme 21 Feb 2006

American Conquest: Divided Nation is the latest offering from the CDV stable and builds on the earlier Conquest and Fight Back games by extending the period into the Texas / Mexican and the American Civil Wars.
Although based on the same engine as the earlier releases, the graphics are still excellent and the uniforms are as true to the historical counterparts as an RTS computer game will allow. Having said that, there is perhaps too much choice. With a massive variety of troop types to choose from: Zouaves, Berdan Rifles, Marines, Line infantry, etc., to name just a tiny few, it is often difficult to decide which ones to actually produce and can distract the player from the need to conduct the campaign and concentrate on the building up of other resources.
The underlying design philosophy behind Divided Nation continues to be the production of masses of large units that can, unfortunately, threaten to overwhelm all but the most powerful computers. I have a fairly high spec machine with a good graphics card, but it still struggles in the longer games as units grow in size. As with the earlier releases including the Cossacks series, the AI never stops churning out countless soldiers and peasants, which is difficult to overcome as the human player tends to concentrate on other things and falls behind the curve. It would certainly be useful to have a population cap to limit this. Whilst the need to produce houses does go someway towards a limit, realistically this has no actual effect on reducing numbers as the AI just builds more of them! Unfortunately, games can often turn into slogging matches as a result.
It certainly isn’t all bad though. The campaign scenarios are excellent and I believe give a far better game than the recent Napoleonic period Cossacks II release.

This would not play on my Windows 7 Laptop. I cannot review the actual game because of the playing issue.
