  1. Those intrigued by 19th-century strife should wait for a price drop: $50 is too much to ask for such a slim package. [Jan 2009, p.75]
  2. History Channel Civil War: Secret Missions treats what should be a rich historical palate as a first-person shooter backdrop and nothing more. Both parties – history buffs and shooter fans – will be disappointed. This is essentially Battle for the Pacific re-skinned and repackaged.
  3. If you don’t really care about the Civil War then just move along and go play a better shooter.
  4. 50
    A bland title with weak and nonsensical mechanics, as well as generic visuals and sound. This doesn't impart a sense of these missions, nor does it cover enough of the Civil War to do the battle justice.
  5. Alas, Secret Missions fails to be that glorious Civil War first-person shooter that not only gives gamers a good glimpse of what the tragic war was about but also experience the secretive side to famous confrontations during that period. With too many problems holding it back, those gamers with an eye towards history should simply consider renting this one instead.
  6. Civil War Secret Missions is simply not recommendable. It can't be considered educational as it spreads more misinformation than it does factual information.
