Dawn at Chancellorsville:
This is a pretty cool mission that takes you from Salem Church to Chancellorsville itself. It starts out when you and a three-man squad of Confederate rangers are trapped and surrounded by a detachment of Union soldiers inside of a burning church. Once you fight your way out, General Jackson comes and gives you orders to scout the Saint Catherine Furnace. This mission ends pretty action packed when you and your remaining two comrades have to destroy a Union encampment. As I said before, this mission is one of the fun ones and will take you from a burning church, through thick woods, and several Union outposts.
The Gatling Gun:
Though most of this mission is fictitious, there is a little actual history to this. It takes place in May of 1864 when you and a squad of five others are given the mission of capturing a nearby Gatling gun. This mission is one of my favorites and is also one of the few long and hard ones. Basically, you have to wander through the thick woods of nearby Cold Harbor, scout a farm, and cross bridges until you reach your encampment. All the way you are fighting Union soldiers, capturing Gatling guns, and scouting the thick wilderness of Virginia. By the time the mission ends, you are the only soldier left (the rest have all been killed). The linear isn't too bad in this mission since I actually got lost and didn't know where to go.
The Gray Ghost:
Short but action packed, you are part of Mosby's rangers and you must blow up several warehouses and capture I think five supply crates in a small town while driving out Union forces. (Forgot the name). This mission is historical and occurs in March of 1863.
On the second day of Gettysburg, you are a Confederate sniper participating in the battle for Devil's Den. I think the team did a good job making this mission more like a big battle, though it could still use improvements. Your mission in this one is to snipe off cannon positions and enemy snipers. This mission is okay, though I got a little bored with just sniping off Union cannoneers.
The Great Train Raid of 1861:
This mission is extremely fun mainly because you have to hijack a train, telegraph a fake message (though it didn't say what it was or where it was sent), and then capture the Union train station blowing up the tracks in the end. This one is mainly just you since all of your friends die. (Oh well, they're practically useless since they miss nearly every shot). Although the linear is terrible in this mission, fun objectives and challenging checkpoints made up for this. I especially enjoyed mowing down Union soldiers with the Gatling gun as I flew by in the train.
There are five more missions after this (all Union), but I don't want to ruin it all for you.

Positive things about this game:
1. The enemy AI is greatly improved. The enemy knows to run if you throw a grenade, they can duck, and can even sidestep if you aim your crosshair at them for too long.
2. The firing sounds are greatly realistic, the audio is great, and I enjoy the music. The reloading is also pretty close, though there are some minor issues.
3. The graphics are good for casual gamers like me. However, it probably wouldn't satisfy serious gamers.
4. The missions are all fun, though I wish they were longer.
5. The interaction is pretty good, except when you shoot at your friends or fire a cannon at a building. Nothing.
Negative things about this game:
1. Voice acting is okay, but still could use improvement. The talking and cut scenes are so boring I just skip over them.
2. Your friends have mud for brains. They can't aim obviously due to the fact that you are basically the only one inflicting casualties. They're also always yelling the same thing over and over like: "I need help!" or "Come 'ere you coward!" or something stupid like "Don't move or you'll be killed!"
3. There is a little language in this game so I wouldn't recommend this for young gamers.
4. The lines that keep you from going anywhere is pretty annoying.
5. The thing that really got under my skin was the bugging problem I was having trouble with. Whenever I aimed at an enemy, the crosshairs would blink red or just stay white (thwarting your ability to kill anyone). After struggling with this problem for months, I managed to fix this by switching my anti-aliasing option on my graphics card to "Super-Sample anti-aliasing." This really fixed the problem for good and I haven't had any problems since then. This will only work if you have a good AMD graphics card, which I do.
6. Would not recommend this game for diehard call of duty or halo fans unless you have an interest in Civil War.
All in all, this was a great game. However, if you want a REAL Civil War experience, try Darkest of Days. But if you just want to have a little fun with small missions, this one's for you. Although many reviews on this game are negative, I would really encourage you to try it out since it is one of the rare fps Civil War games out there. So if you want to buy this game, go on ahead because is isn't a waste of money.
Your view of around you starts wobbling and gets blurry. The only way to stop it is
to aim or look to the ground. Then after a couple of seconds the shaking stops,until you get hit again by a bullet.
This makes it really hard to shoot your enemy and kill him.
For this reason alone I found it hard to get throught the game and decided to give
myself a break by giving it up.
I deleted the game and went back to some other shooter game.
It's not worth the effort to go through at all.
