  1. Innovative features together with realism and playability make it a must-have for American Civil War enthusiasts and recommendable to all tactical-scale wargamers. The lack of strategic elements is a bit disappointing, though. [Aug 2006, p.55]

    As an amatyre student of the CVivil Warv and a connnoisseur of table top games with miniatures, the gameplay offered by Take Cpmmand is second to none in realism. A Masterpiece! Full Review »

    Best Civil War game .. plain and simple. Its funny to read some of the reviews and obvious they have no idea what they are talking about. If you like historical accuracy over flashy graphics this is for you. The 3d engine does do a great job making you feel immersed into the environment.. more so considering the maps are 100% accurate.

    The best American Civil War game to date. The game is about the GAME, not the graphics. If you're only worried about the graphics, play Total War. If you want a game that approaches its subject with respect and tries to provide a simulation instead of an arcade game, try Take Command. What they sacrificed on the graphics front was returned ten-fold on the gameplay front. This game is still on my hard drive, the Total War series (up to Medieval II) sit in the closet gathering dust.
