    A refreshingly crisp and astutely focused look at one of the greatest 19th century battles. [Sept 2014, p.60]

    Strategy games aren’t normally on the top of my to-play list, but I liked this game. Ultimate General: Gettysburg does a great job of being simple enough for anyone to learn in a short sitting, but deep enough to keep you learning and perfecting your tactics deep into subsequent playthroughs.

    The finest Civil War Battle Game ever produced without question. Highest rating possible. No Civil War computer gaming collection will be complete without this Masterpiece game. Expand

    UG:G offered some of the best, richer and more tactical battles I've played in strategy games. I believe this may be one of the best battle strategy games out and at such a low price that it is a total bargain!

    It takes just a couple of minutes to learn how to use the very user-friendly game but that doesn't mean you can beat it easily. The AI should not be underestimated.

    The best Civil War Battle Game I have ever played, the AI is second to none, the battlefield map if stunning and the game play is as fun as you can imagine,

    still in early Access but better than most finished games,

    Very tactical game that never as the same or repeated game play ever! I have had 43 hours of game play and it still keeps my interest, and now with Multiplayer is also available it as given another dimension to the game

    The developers listen to the players and even ask them to give ideas on what they would like within the game
    and are very active on the forums

    All in all great game and If you get this game you will not be disappointed in the least

    A nice strategy game based on (you guessed it) the battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War. The dev's have been quite quick with updates and the game plays extremely well so far. Expand

    One of those rare titles that manage to combine simple and intuitive controls with a remarkable strategic depth. Highly addictive and infinitely replayable - this is a must have, not only for Civil War enthusiasts. Expand

    Well been there from the start liked it then didnt like it then did then didnt like it now its good. Its a solid game its fun its not difficult to learn. I enjoy it. It will not blow you away nor will it disappoint you. If you like war games with realism and not totally over the top try this. The developers did a good job on their first game and it looks as if Creative Assembly/Sega better get their **** together. Smarter AI is what we as gamers are looking for finally got it here. Oh almost forgot stupid bugs where are they? A company that cares about their game and their customer REFRESHING. Expand

    An entertaining if narrowly focused game. Has a good look to it, UI is somewhat clunky but functional. Has a dumbed down RTS feel to it. Sim fans will be mildly entertained for a few hours. As the game gets Repetitive quickly. I give it a 5/10 an average game. Expand
