About This 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 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.

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...

Why do they allow you to buy a game that doesn't work on any modern system. I want my money back!

Pre-Release Review
Will not install under 64 bit windows without an extreme amount of ♥♥♥♥ery with ini files. Once you finally get it working, it's so not worth it.
