Possibly SSI's best seller in the Civil
War simulation market, Gettysburg is a
detailed grand tactical recreation of the Civil
War's most famous battle. While its graphics
may appear dated, the game play is still high
enough to garner a recommendation. CGWs
Strategy Game of the Year for 1987.
With the two player option you play more or less in real time, with an hour of game time providing an hour of battle. Saving to a disk is therefore almost essential unless you have a lot of time and patience. These are, however, only small criticisms of a good, if very slow moving, game.
There is little question in my mind that GTP is
one of the most enjoyable "conflict simulations"
(read--war games) that it has been my pleasure to
play in a very long time. After years of interest in
the factors leading up to, and the conduct of the
American Civil War, it is a very welcome addition
to the growing number of games on this subject
and possibly the best currently available.
