    "Finally,a REAL war game you can play on a computer"

    February 20, 2013   |   By Peter_Principle

    Version: Gettysburg 1.0.1

    Pros

    This is the closest I've yet found to a computer version of the classic Avalon Hill war games of my childhood. In fact, it appears to be virtually identical to the AH game of the same name, but with ability to simulate movement and combat in real time. (Although the ability to stop and start the clock also allows you to simulate turn-based play, if that's your thing.) Computerization also allows for more realistic play by incorporating factors such as supply, attrition, and fatigue into unit capabilities. Ability to rotate unit heading (for infantry) and aim (artillery) more accurately reflects 19th century battlefield tactics, especially the use of flanking movements.

    Cons

    Terrain map is primitive and elevations and coordinates are not clearly marked. Inability to zoom in and out of map makes it hard to separate and precisely position units. Skills of opposing AI general are pretty weak. Game lacks "what if" historical scenarios (i.e. what if Army of Potomac main force had shown up on Day 1, what if Stuart had been around and Lee had been able to concentrate sooner, etc.) No Windows version, as far as I can tell.
