For a game that was primarily developed by one person, Gettysburg is a seriously impressive undertaking. The variety of weapons range from period stuff, such as cavalry and ironclads, to the crazy futuristic steampunk weapons like tanks and zeppelins. You can organize battles where both sides can only use period-correct or futuristic weaponry, or a little of both. Battlefields are absolutely massive, and you can hop into any unit at any time and fight in the battle alongside your troops. Online battles have been dead for a long time, sadly, so you'll likely spend most of your time whupping the AI, which is pretty good.

Now, unfortunately, there are things wrong with Gettysburg. Graphically, it doesn't look as good as the screenshots make you think, but it doesn't look that bad either. There is tons of lag in game, which doesn't seem to have anything to do with what specs you have. Biggest complaint would be Paradox forcing the game into an early release and then having killed off the multiplayer servers quick as could be, dooming the game from the get-go.

Folks into alternate history and anything far-fetched should get a little fun out of this, but due to the online being dead, I'd say hold out for a 75% off sale before grabbing it.

To describe the disappointment this game brings upon you, I'll use an analogy. Imagine you're going to a paintball game, you're excited on the ride to the location. When you get to the venue, and the game of paintball starts, you realize no one is on your team, then you get pelted with rubber bullets. At this point, you're disappointed as all hell and want to get out. Then the venue disappears. You're free, and happy once more. Then you realize your money is still gone, and you go home beat to hell, incredibly disappointed.

WHATEVER YOU DO DON'T BUY THIS GAME!!!! It's super broken and glitchy, the buggiest game i've ever played. In the event that you can figure out how to even start a game with the clunky and confusing UI you'll be confronted with a very frustrating and broken game. You'll be lucky if the skybox and world and everything spawn, then you'll wait a few minutes for textures and ground clutter to pop in, finally you'll be able to actaully start playing. The overall concept for the game is great but its poorly excecuted, as i mentioned earlier the UI is terrible, if you can figure out how to order the units that may or may not spawn, they'll typically do something completely opposite. I once ordered a group of soldiers to walk to a point right in front of them but the game gave them a path all the way around the outskirts of the map and back to the point. This game also suffers from countless bugs, from the aformentioned failed spawning and pop in to things skipping about the map or dissapearing. Units will also just completely ignore orders and stand around, of course that's no threat to them as the enemy AI is just as bad and will seldom attack you. All in all this game will just frustrate you, save yourself the $10, i got it on sale for 50% off so i didn't lose too much. Until some major patching and updating is done, stay away from gettysburg: Armored Warfare. Go play Starcraft: II or Command & Conquer instead.
