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.

This almost goes under NONWORKING GAME, but does technically work.

Unfortunately, that actually makes it worse than if it just crashed on load.

Also it's basically a multiplayer-only thing so you need to sucker someone else into playing this with you if you want to fully enjoy how bad it is. But please don't.

A disappointing piece of crap that should have never been released in the state it was but to what I understand it was completely made by one guy. Maybe he outsourced models or textures but Im not sure. If it was made by one guy its impressive but at the same time not really. AI is relatively basic, textures and models look okay but the art style doesn't seem to be a single style besides it all being wacky steampunk. Controls feel basic without much actual feel to them. Actual gameplay feels dull and emotionless which in a way is what this game is. Its also fairly buggy but you won't play it enough to know this unless your a raving lunatic. Its just not done. Thats pretty much it, bruv.

I initially was very hyped for this game but when it came out it was a dissapointment.

Last I checked this game was non-functioning as its main focus was online and no one played it because it sucks but mostly because the servers were down and were down for the forseeable future. Im not sure as to whether they are online now but I doubt the game has changed since I last played it so unlike other games I don't really feel the bother to install and try it. The dev blog or whatevers out there should be able to tell you if interested.

Stay away from this one is about the best thing you could do.

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.
