I enjoyed this game once I got into it. It has a steep learning curve for those of us used to more aggressive shooters. The difference is refreshing and fun. It has a very professional feel to it, and vignettes from the movie. It's subtle, yet dynamic. That captures the Civil War well. It was a war of gentlemen and rebels. How you play it determines your success. I hope that expansions keep coming. It was a long war, with a lot of battles and skirmishes. I live in a town that changed hands (North/South) about a dozen times during this period. I have been to many battlefields and look forward to maybe seeing some of them portrayed on my PC. If you need laser blasts and aliens hordes for your entertainment, stay clear of this one. It will leave you bored and unfulfilled. But, if you want a change, and a chance to relive the time and tensions of our country's development, give this one a try.

Подводя итоги, могу посоветовать эту игру тем, кто любит читать электронные энциклопедии, которые обычно включаются в такого рода игры. В данном случае, разработчики даже включили три батальных сцены из фильма (очень неплохих, кстати). К сожалению, не могу порекомендовать эту игру в качестве хорошего экшена, поскольку сейчас на рынке есть множество куда более интересных игр этого жанра. Впрочем, если в России когда-нибудь выйдет "Gods and Generals", то эта игра окажется неплохим сопутствующим товаром.

And you’ll probably end up doing just that out of sheer boredom thanks to the insipid gameplay. Enemy officers seem to do the hokey-pokey as they futilely wave their swords at you; your muskets are disposable one-shot weapons while enemies’ have endless ammo; and sloppy collision detection means you can get hopelessly entangled in 2D tree limbs. As further proof Gods was rushed to shelves, multiplay was omitted. (Activision threatens a free multiplayer add-on in the future, however.) The Civil War was probably unavoidable; thankfully, this game isn’t.

Then again, the game shamelessly steals from last year's No One Lives Forever 2, so it's clear that someone on the development team played that far, far superior game. Perhaps the team didn't realize that it was actually that game's fast-paced gameplay, excellent graphics, funny dialogue, great sound, and memorable characters that made it so great. Whatever the case, Gods and Generals turned out to be something that no self-respecting motion picture, director, or media mogul should ever be associated with. The next time some brilliant marketing executives decide they need to aggressively promote their movies, they should consider broadcasting more TV commercials. The rest of us should not play this game.

Остерегаться Gods & Genit… простите, Gods & Generals как чумы. Повстречав человека, рассказывающего, какой замечательный шутер выпустила AniVision, немедля сдать его на опыты в ближайшую ветлечебницу. Тираж расплющить трактором «Беларусь», а коллектив разработчиков отправить на тростниковые плантации, изредка разрешая рисовать баннеры для порносайтов. Отобрать у Activision Value лицензию на LithTech Jupiter и безвозмездно передать ее действительно нуждающимся компаниям.
