Over dit spel

Na een overrompelende toename van het terrorisme, interne conflicten en uiteindelijk de nucleaire verwoesting van Washington DC, vallen de Verenigde Staten uiteen in een half dozijn staatjes die op punt van oorlog staan. Neem het roer over van een van deze nieuw gestichte soevereine staatjes of neem deel aan de Europese Vredesmacht en probeer Amerika opnieuw te verenigen...met alle noodzakelijke middelen!

  • Modern tactisch oorlogsspel in 3D, gezien vanuit de hoogte, wat een panoramisch beeld geeft.
  • Niet-lineaire missievoortgang waarbij de beslissingen van de speler het spel bepalen.
  • Realtimeresolutie van op spelersbeurt gebaseerde zetten. Neem gerust de tijd om je zet te bepalen, maar zodra je hebt aangegeven welke actie je onderneemt, zie je de resultaten in volledig geanimeerde modellen, exploderende voertuigen en brandende steden en wouden!
  • Het terrein en/of de omgeving kan volledig worden verwoest. Terwijl de strijd voortwoekert, zijn de resultaten van explosies en de verwoeste gebouwen permanent zichtbaar op het terrein. Voortratelende tanks laten rupsbandsporen achter die tijdens de hele missie te zien zijn. Aan het eind lijkt bijna niets meer op hoe het ooit was.
  • Vecht je een weg door de Verenigde Staten! Heb je je buik vol van 'the windy city' Chicago? Bombardeer de stad plat! Trek over de Rocky Mountains Californië binnen, neem de tankfabrieken in Ohio in bezit en verover New York City! Jij bepaalt wat er gebeurt. Het lot van de natie ligt in jouw handen!
  • Roep de National Guard te hulp met hun M1 Abrams-gevechtstanks, Apache-helikopters en radarontwijkende bommenwerpers. Of maak een deal met de Russen en rust je mannen uit met MiG-gevechtstoestellen en zware tanks van het type T-95.

Systeemeisen

    Aanbevolen: Intel P4 1,8 GHz of AMD Athlon XP 1800+, 256 MB RAM, videokaart van 128 MB

When getting this, I expected some sort of engaging top-down strategy gameplay with a somewhat fleshed out world. Instead I got a clunky menu, unbalanced maps, gameplay that is beyond stiff, an annoying camera, and the same old generic CoD story about Russia being behind all this and regressing back to the Soviet days. The factions all feel the same and there really isn't much substance as far as engaging gameplay, just build more and bigger tanks than everyone else and try your hardest to steamroll people. Terrain really isn't a factor in most battles and a smaller, more agile army can almost never outwit a larger, high-firepower one, brute force is ALL that matters, very little real tactics. Kinda regretting my purchase.

First time I played this game was on the XBOX 360, when I saw all the negative reviews I held back on buying it again. Well the price droped enough to make the risk worth it, and it has worked just fine on my Win10 OS. It is a great game that requires tactics to win, the graphics are better then the XBOX360 and it seems to have all the features I remember. Finding a manual is as easy as finding google maps...you just have to hit a few keys and you have it.

I saw great potential with story and idea. As one of the few turn based games I was hopeful. It falls short, however. The handoff between the strategic level and the tactical level has too many holes. Also and I hate this common dodge but it does seem handicapped to the AI. Perhaps with more digging in and such I could find the game worthwhile but it couldn't keep my interest enough for the effort.

Played the retail version many years ago and thourghly enjoyed it. Was disappointed as it would'nt run on win 7 x64 systems.
Thumbs up now as texture fix posted by drunk monkey gives a simple fix without all the faffing about that only works on some systems.
Update: Works on Win 10 with patch as well.

Was a great game. I say was because on XP it worked fine. But nobody uses XP anymore if they give 2 ♥♥♥♥♥ about gaming, so you're buying a $5 virtual paperweight now. The only fixes involve restricting the RAM on boot which is simply unacceptable.

This game doesnt run on 90% of computers so dont buy it.

I played this game WAY back in the day when is worked on the normal computer. It was fun but was a little simple and weird in its management sections. It was fun but HARD AS HELL because the AI knows where you are at and you are just praying that you set up your men right for the hordes of troops that will be attacking. When I bought it on Steam I found out that it no longer works on modern computers anymore. This game was fun but not worth the effort of hacking to get it to work.

I liked this game, I am going to Recommend it but be aware that it most likely wont work for you.

Here is a guide for getting Shattered Union to work on WIndows Vista/7/8 etc.

http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=230301

http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=230085

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...

Pretty annoying this game will not run on a very significant percentage of the machines used by the Steam customer base. I agree with many others that there should be a BIG warning on the game's store page it will not run on systems with more than 2GB of RAM. Not having such a warning causes a lot of bitterness.

I have no idea why Steam still sells this game. It does not work on any system with more than 2GB of memory and/or a 64-bit OS. If Steam isn't going to patch the product, then they shouldn't sell it. The "fix" that was posted does not work for everyone, and is not a "fix" but a workaround. Do not buy this game if you have anything newer than Windows XP, it will not work.

Do you like hexagonal wargames? This one isn't really breaking any molds or moving the genre forward, but it's rock solid. Shattered Union has a very niche market and never really sold well for the original Xbox, but interest in the Steam sale may have prompted a brief revival. In all fairness, that's probably a good thing.

Shattered Union is an entry-level strategy game that just about anyone can pick up. It's probably not a game most people would put a lot of time into, but it's at the very least worth owning.

As was said the game will not run on modern systems that use Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8. I'm using Windows 7 and get nothing but a black screen and then the game crashes.
Read the small print of the system requirements which they have conveniently changed since I bought the game, it used to read XP, Vista and Windows 7.

I also think older XP systems that have more then 2GB of memory/RAM may have problems running the game as well. If so there is a workaround where you go into MSconfig and set your system to only use 2GB of memory. Search google for the exact method. Be sure to turn it back though after playing the game as your computer performance will suffer with only using the 2GB of memory.

Luckily I bought this game on sale for like $2 so not much lost but be forwarned everyone else.

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.

A basic and simple game that appeals to the tactful minded. The main strategy is to keep your units protected from airstrikes while keeping them out of range of groundforces until you decide to attack. With multiple ways to win a mission this game has decent replay value and may appeal to the die hard tactician as well as the casual gamer.

To those saying it won't work - there is a simple workaround, easy to find with a quick search.
Now, this isn't a great game. It's an ok game. But, for 5 bucks, Shattered Union is well worth it. Fight a modern day civil war across a fully destructable US as one of 7 factions, like the Midwest, California, and even the EU. The AI each has different personalities per game, which affects how it will fight. Each map focuses on a small region of the US, with accurate towns/geography. Your actions on the battlefield affect your reputation - preserve landmarks and buildings and you gain precision abilties; destroy everything in your path to victory and gain powerful destructive weapons.
All in all, it's a fun, old, tactical turn-based military game.

Game crashes when loading certain maps. The game was made for the Original Xbox, it seems nothing has changes since then. It does not work on computer running Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8. Look at the forums and reviews and you will see what I mean. If you do get it running, you can expect a simple but fun turn based strategy game. Fighting other states and their armies. Reuniting the nation by force, state by state. Taking cities, destroying land marks, bridges, and factores to gain the upperhand. Dispite being a competent and fun strategy game, I have to say pass on this game since it seems most users can't get it working or working properly.

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.
