Editors' Review

+
A decent game for 1997, when it came out, Sid Meyer s real-time-strategy titled Gettysburg Yankee hasn't aged well. Demanding players will disdain its chunky graphics and limited special effects. Even casual gamers will notice the clunky controls and the game's poor pathfinding AI. One good point that gives this oldie an edge over even some of today s titles is the well-made tutorial and the handy hints that appear at the beginning of a battle. The three demo levels provide a taste of combat on the Union and Confederate sides. You need to take care of your soldiers' morale: if they get shot from the rear or come under heavy gunfire, they'll run from the field. If you loved Gettysburg Yankee in 1997, you might enjoy giving it another try. For most people, though, it's little more than a quaint historical curiosity.

"Excelent AI. Good Gameplay. Much re-playability."

September 28, 2009  |  By druzhina345

 |  Version: Sid Meier's Gettysburg Yankee demo

Pros

The randomization feature allows for variability within set scenarios & to generate completely random games. The AI can react to your tactics and crush you if you make a mistake.

Cons

Graphics are Low-Res, 256 colours.

Summary

Dozens of users created mods including Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg, Wilderness, Lynchburg, Peach Tree Creek, Bull Run, the Seven Days Battles, Wilson's Creek, Chicamauga, Glorieta Pass etc & for other periods: Saratoga, Waterloo, Metz 1870 & Solferino 1859 are available at http://home.mysoul.com.au/graemecook/SMG/Download.htm

Anyone who loves the more classic war games, those from the Revolution and the Civil War, will really love this game. It gives you the feeling of being back in the days of the Civil War.
