    My expectations were low for this game, I had borrowed it from a friend just to get some the achievement points for it, but it offered a little more. The missions are so linear it's a bit dull at times, and the guns take a while to reload, but that makes it more real I guess, the graphics were better than I would have thought.

But this ultimatly this is a pretty fun game, sure it's super short, and you could probably beat it in a day, it's not worth 50$, it's basically what the name suggest, it's a game developed by History buffs" and thats exactly what you get out of it.

    The graphics and sound are good, and the historical presentation is interesting. Aside from that, there was not a lot to like about this game. It's fairly easy, somewhat tedious and is not polished. A few more months would have done it well. Using cover is next to worthless as you are often shot by enemies you can't see, even when crouched behind a rock.

You will have an enemy sighted up in your crosshairs (doesn't matter if you are zoomed or not), and they do not respond to being shot. Somewhat disappointed overall, but the game is not horrible.

    The graphics in civil war are almost alike of the graphics for a PlayStation 2! The guns are awesome and it has a good historical backround..... another thing is when you walk in puddles you dont hear the water sound....it would be better if it were co-op and have more misson's... I would not recommend for sombody to buy this game it is way to easy and the game cost $59.99....if you The graphics in civil war are almost alike of the graphics for a PlayStation 2!

    Its pretty fun but is short and has no multipalyer on it. Pretty good graphics but you die to much from the cannons.

    ok game. the getting shot while in cover thing gets really anoying. It is pretty straight forward. other than the fact that i isn't based in WW2 it is not too much different from The COD games. but other than that it is on ok game but I don't recomend paying the full price for it

    The History Channel: Civil War - A Nation Divided is an average game for the most part, I liked being given the backgrounds on the battles before playing them. Both campaigns are alright (some missions are very tedious). The graphics though are PS2 or Xbox -ish "not very good".

  1. After playing through the game, we couldn't help but wonder why Civil War: A Nation Divided wasn't released at a lower price point. The game features subpar graphics, no multiplayer mode, poor AI, and a fairly short single-player campaign.
  2. At best, Civil War is a weekend rental for shooter fans, history buffs, or Achievement miners who aren't knee deep in this fall's blockbuster military games. Be prepared to learn a little and reload a lot - while the buckshot flies all around you.

    Sure, you've got some historic weapons and rally cries you won't likely hear in another game. Yet, the shooting isn't fun and the gameplay doesn't do anything to bring the feel of the Civil War to life.
