Not even worth a dollar...

If you're in it for the achievements, still don't bother. They've been disabled beacause you can only get them online, but there is no online play anymore. So yeah...

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.
