Despite the fact that SSI are still using the block character graphics of half a decade ago, Sons of Liberty is a winner with its comprehensive strategic play and possibilities.

SSI's Civil War engine simulates the American Revolution. Covering a somewhat neglected period, this simulation is accurate and detailed, offering three different battles: Bunker Hill, Saratoga and Monmouth.

Apple IIComputer Gaming World (CGW) (Apr, 1988)
In summary, one must note that each release in the "American Civil War" series showed refinements over the previous game. SOL is no exception. It combines the user-friendliness and playability of the previous series with an understanding of the problems of an earlier period's warfare and refinements to the system, as well as careful scenario design, to capture the flavor of 18th Century warfare. Not only does this reviewer heartily recommend SOL to all who enjoyed the ACW series, but urges SSI to start planning a sequel which emphasizes the southern battles.
