Product Description

Shattered Union is a dark look at a possible American future. After much internal strife and the nuclear destruction of Washington, D.C., the United States shatters into a half-dozen nation-states that descend into war. Take the helm of one of these warring factions (or the "peacekeeping" European Expeditionary Force) and struggle to reunify America...by any means necessary! A turn-based strategy wargame from the developers of the Tropico series and Railroad Tycoon 2 and 3. Choose to play as one of seven different factions - Greater California, Arcadia (Pacific Northwest), New Republic of Texas, Heartland (Midwest and Great Plains states), Dixieland, Yankee Union and the European Expeditionary Force. Call up National Guard forces equipped with M1 Abrams battle tanks, Apache helicopters and stealth bombers. Or make a deal with the Russians and equip your boys with MiG fighters and T-95 Heavy Tanks. Online and offline mutiplayer support on all platforms.

From the Manufacturer

PopTop Software, the developers of the Tropico series and Railroad Tycoon 2 and 3, turn their focus onto a much darker subject matter with Shattered Union, a turn-based strategy wargame in which players fight as one of many warring factions in an attempt to reunify the United States fractured by a second civil war.

Following a great increase in terrorism, internal strife, and ultimately, the nuclear destruction of Washington, D.C., the United States shatters into a half-dozen nation-states that descend into war. Take the helm of one of these newfound sovereignties (or the "peacekeeping" European Expeditionary Force) and struggle to reunify America by any means necessary!

Features:

  • Modern 3-D tactical war game viewed from a "bird's-eye" overhead camera.
  • Non-linear mission progression with changes based on player-made decisions.
  • Real-time resolution of turned-based moves. Take your time while you decide your move, but once you have selected your action, see the results all play out in full animation models, exploding vehicles, and burning cities and forests!
  • Fully destructible terrain/environment. As the battle proceeds, everything from explosions and destroyed buildings permanently mark the terrain. Moving tanks will leave tread marks that stay for the duration of the mission. At the end, very little will look the same.
  • Fight your way across the United States! Had enough of the windy city? Then go ahead and bomb Chicago! Invade across the Rockies into California, capture the tank factories in Ohio, and lay siege to New York City! You decide--the fate of the nation is in your hands!
  • Choose to play as one of seven different factions: California Commonwealth, Pacifica, Republic of Texas, Great Plains Federation, The Confederacy, New England Alliance, and the European Union.
  • Call up National Guard forces equipped with M1 Abrams battle tanks, Apache helicopters, and stealth bombers. Or make a deal with the Russians and equip your boys with MiG fighters and T-95 Heavy Tanks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shattered Union - Xbox January 29, 2006
Platform for Display:Xbox
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Shattered Union takes place in the not so distant future where a mishap has allowed the most unpopular president in the history of the United States to remain in office for a second term with no election taking place.

Washington DC is nuked... the entire governing body of the US is wiped out, chaos ensues. States secede from the Union and form their own governments. Europe, feeling the effects of the economy collapsing in the US sends a force of EU "Peacekeepers" to restore order. And so... the battlefield is set, the US is at War with itself for the second time in history.

It's up to you to restore peace and order, to unite the country once again. Seven different factions are at your disposal to accomplish this task.

Pacifica

The California Commonwealth

The Great Plains Federation

The New England Alliance

The Confederacy

The Republic of Texas

European Union

Each faction is comprised of their own strengths and weaknesses, but are very similar in terms of battle units. Which are a virtual smorgasbord of units based on real life American military vehicles as well as some fictional units to keep things exciting. Abrams super tanks, Bradley's, Apache Gunships and Stealth Bombers are all yours to command. Each faction also has their own variation on a super tank. A massive tank unit that is generally the most powerful unit on the field. It's basically the Chuck Norris of tanks.

Beyond that, each faction has their own set of special weapons or tactics that can be unleashed on the field of battle. These range from troop buffs to laser guided tomahawk missile strikes as well as nuclear attacks and other things that are best discovered on your own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chess with destruction May 6, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I played the story line once and it was fun. Now I just do the arcade mode (skirmish) when I want to roll around blow stuff up. Fun time killer. Not incredibly hard. Then again I'm of an AF Ops Intel background so I know what to take out to give me the upper hand, lol. (Hint: target air defenses then bomb with impunity.) I load up on bombers heavy armor and Artillery, use Helo's to open up the battlespace and clear the fog of war, and have fun.

Graphics are decent, sound is good. The aspect that makes the game fun to play over and over are the special weapons you gain after X ammount of turns. Each faction has different capabilities. And in Skirmish mode you can toggle them to either low collateral damage or high collateral damage weapons. High Collateral examples are (but not limited too) Napalm, carpet bombing, Artillery barrages, and a Nuke. Low collateral are precision weapons, electronic attack, cruise missiles, etc.

This game won't keep you riveted for days on end, but makes for a fun few hours spent waging war from time to time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Above Average May 12, 2007

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok, so its pretty light on storyline. A little effort could have turned this into a much better game. That said it does represent a genre we do not see much at all these days. Turned based games are somewhat on the outs these days but they always had a purpose. This is one of the few left on the market for a modern gaming platform. At bargain basement prices it is a good diversion for a single player. Better for two to face off though.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just found this game on amazon and recently began playing on my Xbox 360 (You need the latest firmware update over xbox live) the gameplay is great and the story line is fun I hope the make a modern version of the game like Endwar. On a side note the resolution is only 480P so on an HD tv the picture will be smaller than your used too but still playable. Great game to pick up if you have a 360 and like strategy!

Platform for Display:Xbox
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Amazon.com Please note that this game is NOT compatible with the X360.

I bought it expecting to be able to play it on my X360 with ease. Unfortunately, it does NOT work.

This game is rated as 3 stars, average game play and average fun, because it was an average game...=p

Released in 2005 by PopTop Software with 2K Games doing whatever it is they do, "Shattered Union" is a superb turn-based strategy game with a premise and storyline no other game can even hope to compare to. It begins with the 2008 election bringing in David J. Adams, who soon becomes the most unpopular President in US history. Popular candidates were disqualified to leave him close to unopposed the first time around, and when a sham election sees him in office for yet another four years, the public is furious. The last straw comes when DC is hit by a low-yield nuclear device during the inaguaration ceremonies, killing Adams and a huge number of ranking political and, presumably, military figures. For a brief moment, the nation stands headless, and then chaos ensues. Having at last had it, California secedes from the USA, becoming an independent nation once more, and Texas follows quickly, both states taking neighbors with them. The EU moves in to rebuild the US, and numerous other factions soon arise, with a second Civil War beginning in 2014.

The seven factions are: Pacifica in the Northwest, Great Plains Federation in the Northern Midwest, Republic of Texas in the Southern Midwest, California Commonwealth in the Southwest, the Confederacy in the South, New England Alliance in the North, and EU in DC, Maryland, Virginia and Delaware. Those states get a free pass, I guess. We never get to find out whether they'd have seceded and joined a faction or what. Anyway.

The gameplay is turn-based, with the map divided up into hexagons or hexes. Towns and cities provide points, and a certain amount must be held to keep or take the territory. Battles last up to 14 days, but this has no impact on the strategic scale map, in which one round turn with all the factions moving takes one week.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good turn-based strategy game, like chess with tanks.
This is similar to the game "Super Conflict" I used to play on Super Nintendo. Aaaahhh... I love the smell of nostalgia in the morning.

This game is different. It doesn't have great graphics and it is not like the other military games, infact it is a lot like chess. You just move your army and watch them battle. Read more
