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.

Great concept but rushed release courtesy of the publisher forcing the dev to release before ready, good job, Paradox!

The dev that made G:AW is now working on his own project with intent to launch it without a publisher pushing him along, he offered anybody that bought G:AW and hated it (everyone) a free copy of his new game upon release as a thanks :)

But as for this review, seriously, don't buy this lol.

Exremely buggy with frequent crashes, skyboxes not spawning, and AI glitches. The units are also extremely unbalanced, with future units completely trouncing anything they meet on the battlefield - the tank is especially overpowered in particular. Coupled with boring gameplay and a lack of instructions, I would not recommend this game.

Stay away.... As a concept it's amazing... in execution it is severely lacking. Graphics are mediocre, but the publisher has taken down the servers for multi-player. The auto released the server code, so you could play it, but that doesn't make it worth it.

It's very hard to see where your bullets go when you play mini-gun infantry for one example, because your head blocks it all. If your curious about this game, wait for another Steam Sale and hopefully get it for 99 cents or less.

I didn't play it for more than about 20 minutes before I gave up on it. It's an FPS arena type of game that just doesn't have an arena anymore.
