All in all, Take Command 2nd Manassas is fairly good as war games go. You won't confuse it with more mainstream RTS games, but it doesn't slip into the nether hardcore regions of map-controlled monstrosities. If you're a casual gamer looking to branch out into slightly more complex war games, then give Take Command 2nd Manassas a try, and if you're a war gamer, pick it up and go nuts, especially if you have an interest in the Civil War. However, other casual gamers shouldn't be afraid to stick to games like Civilization 4
and, of course, Warhammer 40,000: DOW
. Unless you have an interest in the genre already, Take Command is probably not going to convert you.
