I was hoping that this game would be great, but it is very disappointing. Since I'm older than most gamers, and also enjoy The History Channel, I thought this game would be at least very good to me. It's not. It's medicore at best, and a disappointing effort from Activision and The History Channel. The game sounds good on paper. You get to take part in some of the most famous battle of The Civil War, along with some historical information from The History Channel to send you on your way. It just doesn't work. You get a few sentences, and then sent on your way. When the mission is complete, you pretty much get nothing other than a stat screen. As for the features of the game, the graphics are nothing special. The music and narrative are very repetitive, and get old fast. The gameplay is frustrating. There is no multiplayer, and the solo missions get old fast. I give the game 3 stars only because I'm a history buff. Otherwise it's much closer to 2 stars.

For those who did not like "A Nation Divided" I would recomend you give this a try. Although it has the some of the makings of the first game it has much more depth of environment. The outdoor environments are impressive. Gameplay is linear but you have the option in some cases to flank your opponent and approach from a different angle. Another addition to this game is the rank system. As you complete missions and kill more enemies you rank up and get skill points you can use to improve your gameplay. I have this game for PS3 and I think it is much better than the first one. Anyone who likes FPS's and the American Civil War will like this game.

This game is a lot of fun for the history buff. I had been waiting for a game like this for a long time and was excited when I saw this as an option for my PS3.

The graphics are terrific and I found it enjoyable from start to finish. Some of the things said by the soldiers seem a little bit like something from this time period rather than the 1800's, but the battle scenes and story lines are a lot of fun and hold pretty close to true on the historical significance.

For those of you that like history this is a "Must Have" for your PS3.

The game came scratched but still worked. It was not what I expected. There is some action but not as much as I expected. Not hard to beat at all. A seven year old beat a level on hard in less than 15 minutes. Here are some good things about the game it tells you about the Civil War history. Over all I would get it. It is a good game. That is why I gave it 3 stars.
