About the Game

Following a great increase in terrorism, internal strife and ultimately, the nuclear destruction of Washington, D.C., the United States shatters into a half-dozen nation-states that descend into war. Take the helm of one of these newfound sovereignties (or the 'peacekeeping' European Expeditionary Force) and struggle to reunify America... by any means necessary!

  • Modern 3D tactical war game viewed from a "bird's-eye" overhead camera.
  • Non-linear mission progression with changes based on player-made decisions.
  • Real-time resolution of turned-based moves. Take your time while you decide your move, but once you have selected your action, see the results all play out in full animation models, exploding vehicles, and burning cities and forests!
  • Fully destructible terrain/environment. As the battle proceeds, everything from explosions and destroyed buildings permanently mark the terrain. Moving tanks will leave tread marks that stay for the duration of the mission. At the end, very little will look the same.
  • Fight your way across the United States! Had enough of the windy city? Then go ahead and bomb Chicago! Invade across the Rockies into California, capture the tank factories in Ohio, and lay siege to New York City! You decide - the fate of the nation is in your hands!
  • Call up National Guard forces equipped with M1 Abrams battle tanks, Apache helicopters and stealth bombers. Or make a deal with the Russians and equip your boys with MiG fighters and T-95 Heavy Tanks.

This game is (was) a lot of fun but it doesn't work on anything newer than Windows XP. There is a workaround where you have to minimize your available ram (see forums), but even that doesn't work with a lot of people (including me).

I have tried everything including the workaround, virtual XP and using old drivers and changing a bunch of settings. Nothing works for me.

I seriously recommend you do NOT buy this game.

Does not run if you have more than 2GB RAM.
Waste of money: not recommended.

If you have an old computer, however, I do recommend it.
Played it for about 20+ hours back in the day and is a very fun (if simple) TBS.

For people who like the older turn based hexoganal strategy games, (Panzer General comes to mind) this game is for you. The graphics arent all that but who cares! Its got all the military units of the U.S. along with its sound effects. Although futuristic, its still an enjoyable strategy. Its a slow paced games where you have to really think out tactically your moves. Since money is sparse you really have to be careful on losing your expensive units. Yes I cheated a bit and simply re-loaded the game when I would lose an expensive unit. But all in all, this game is awesome for your average day armchair general.

Sorry about that... for some reason I was convinced there was a link to more details in that post. My mistake.

Here's how you do it:

1. In your Start Menu search field, type in "msconfig", without the " " of course.

2. Click on the Boot tab.

3. Click on the Advance Options button.

4. Check the little box next to "Maximum memory" and set the max to 2048.

5. Reboot computer.

Now when it reboots, Windows will act and run as if there is only 2GB of memory installed. This will allow Shattered Union to run. After you're done playing, go back to msconfig and uncheck the Maximum Memory box and then reboot, to allow Windows full use of all your RAM.

Again, sorry for the lack of detail earlier. I really do need to stop posting after I get home from work, but before I've had dinner...
