Short Review – Ultimate General: Gettysburg
This is a tiny strategy game, and when I say tiny I mean the overall content of the game. There is a short campaign that takes you through the battle at Gettysburg and you may do so by either playing the Union or Federate side, changing history while you’re at it.
But the game is NOT tiny when it comes to the amount of fun you can have with it. You can switch up the AI’s playstyle and difficulty for every playthrough and you also change your own way of trying to beat it. If you’re a RTS player that enjoy the fighting part of the Total War games you will probably enjoy this game as well. It does not have THAT much of depth yet, there are not a ton of different manouvers you can do for each unit but the overall gameplay feels amazing.
Drawing lines over the battlefield to move your units feels and works great. It takes a second to get used to, but as soon as you get the controls in to your head you’re gonna focus on putting your units in the best strategic positions and doing brave charges in to the enemy lines.
There are however some issues if you play on a lower difficulty, you can actually be to agressive and push the AI army in to a corner of the map making them unable to move. But then again… there is also a multiplayer mode!
Great game overall. Recommended!
