  1. American Conquest is a solid RTS that will entertain many a history buff and the casual gamer alike. Though it does have its share of issues, the game is still worth checking out.

    A mediocre real-time strategy. Unfortunately, the game seems to be based on the old American Conquest engine instead of the newer and more refined Cossacks II engine. [Feb 2006]
  3. I suppose, if you have an interest in US history, you might eke more enjoyment from the game than I did. But, I am afraid all the fears I had when I first unwrapped the game came true. Playable but, in the end, pretty dull.
  4. While American Conquest: Divided Nation is sure to have civil war buffs drooling over its adherence to historical accuracy, from a strategic gameplay point of view, it's not exactly going to give the more established and, let's be honest, more technologically advanced RTS games like Rome: Total War or Cossacks II a run for their money. [PC Zone]
  5. It’s just an anachronistic burp from long ago, repeating itself with an apologetic grin and a flutter of its eyelashes to turn into an average RTS of today. Er, I’ve got no idea where this metaphor’s going. Just look at the score.
  6. Overall, it is difficult to find a reason to recommend this game over, say, "Age of Empires III." A higher learning curve, more micromanagement, dated graphics, and an interface that could use a bit of fine-tuning make this a mediocre game.

    Divided Nation is a step backward. It's a journey to the past in more ways than one, and not an interesting trip at all. [Oct. 2006, p.73]

    Besides the lousy scroll function. This game is pretty fun and there is much replayability. However, U need to go through the manual to Besides the lousy scroll function. This game is pretty fun and there is much replayability. However, U need to go through the manual to perfectly understand this game. This is a gem, and they dun make games like these anymore. Those cursory reviews by the professional reviewers will do this game injustice. Expand
