Acerca de este juego

Durante más de un año, las fuerzas de los Estados Unidos de América (Estados del Norte) y los Estados Confederados de América (Estados del Sur) han protagonizado una amarga guerra. En 1862 los gobiernos de Gran Bretaña, Francia y España reconocieron a los Estados del Sur para asegurarse el suministro de materias primas. La economía del Sur juega un papel clave en el comercio con Europa. El Gobierno del Norte impone un embargo total al comercio marítimo con el Sur. El Gobierno Confederado compra buques de guerra a las potencias europeas para proteger su comercio. Esto siembra la semilla del conflicto por el control de las rutas comerciales de la Confederación. Escoge un bando, construye una flota y destruye al enemigo.

Broken English, complicated controls, yet, I have to commend this game because it hasn't been banned for having Confederate symbolism.

Absolute dog of a game. It's like a cheap mobile game. The 'campaign' is the same battle over and over. The ships are really boring, and even if one of them was unique, you can sink it again and again, or own 4. Combat drags on forever. Graphics weren't very good for 2009, and haven't aged well.

having played now a littl eof this i think it is an okay game to get if on sale perhaps but its appeal is going to be restricted to only the few diehard fans of the period who like their battles to move at a snails pace and also to how a limited role in activity of the battle itself
you can direct the ship column and you can alter its speed and tell it not to fire if you want, though i cant see any reason ever to do so
- there is no way to change formations in battle or even to detach a ship from you column - these omissions i find strange

perhaps the biggest gripe i would have are the non-existent collision physics - for a historical game like this where the close quarters ship firefights happen alot as the AI will come right in to fight, there are frequent collisions, but the ships just bounce of each stutteringly until one a bounce enough to move away - this is ridiculous when the pointy end of an ironclad civil war gun ship rams into the side of a wooden sailing vessel - there is no destruction occurring at all, except for the slight percentage damage added to the ships damage stat - but this sometimes doesnt occur at all - ram a ship like this would certainly sink at least one of them outright

i will recommend the game because it is easy to play with and i think the graphics are nice enough, but with the above caveats about its shoddy collision physics and limited player controls

I wanted to love this game. History and alternate history stories have been a hobby of mine as far back as I can remember and the US Civil war is one of my favorite periods. The idea of the Confederates gaining the naval strength to go toe to toe with the Union navy is one of my favorite What Ifs of the war and there as so few naval foused games, especially set in this period, that it seemed like a match made in heaven.

Where things went wrong.

1: You can only control the flagship of a squadron directly. In fact you can't give any orders to the other ships at all and can't even order your ships into battle formation as far as I can tell.

2: The flagship's controls are far too clunky and the flagships will sometimes switch their engines to full reverse for no apparent reason.

3: Battles take forever even with the turbo speed option engaged. I played one battle for almost an hour. Not only was the battle not over but none of the 13 ships involved had been sunk or surrendered and the most heavily damaged had only taken around 65 percent damage. This ship started fleeing at 60 percent damage but fled through the heart of my nearest squadron guns blazing rather then running away and soon rejoined its squadron for their next pass.

4: There aren't enough ship classes in the game. There are six ship classes but each side only has three warship classes to choose from. Though I will say that I was pleasantly surprised when I realized they didn't just have both sides using the same ship classes they really need more choices in fleet makeup,

This game is like an early alpha. There's only one mode of play - buy a fleet of ships then set them against eachother in a fleet action. In the battle phase of the game there's very little to actually do. Your ships are grouped into three squadrons and for each squadron you can pick a speed and course, and whether or not the ships can open fire or not. And that's pretty much the total gameplay. You can't pick your targets. You can't choose ammunition types. There's no damage control or firefighting. You can't grapple and board. Because the game is set in the "High Seas" (despite using river monitors!) the battles are in completely open ocean, without so much as an island to add variety. I finally gave up on this game when a ship ramming another amidships had absolutely no effect whatsoever.

Graphics are barely adequate, music and sound effects are okay. It's like someone started a project to do a naval combat game and got the code to the absolute minimal running state before abandoning it. You might be tempted to buy this if you see it cheap. Don't. However little you pay for it, you won't get your money's worth.

no tutorial, no options, can't even turn the dire music off
so many way better naval games than the ironclads
even total wars do a better naval fight than this pile of crud

Well, I got this cos I'm quite a nerd for ironclad ships, but I think I really wasted my money even though I got it pretty cheap on sale. The gameplay is barely there, all you can do is steer your columns of ships and tell them when to start firing. you can't target specific enemy ships, you get very little info about the status of any ships. I was very dissapointed as I really wanted this game to be at least ok.

a very nice game.

for those who complain that there is no tutorial, i suggest that you consult the game manual.

its brief, clear and does the job.

for those who say its a slow boring game i suggest that realistic naval wargames are obviously not your thing.

this game is very tactical and rewarding.

my only complaint is that i can t turn the music off!

Do NOT buy this game, here is why:

- ZERO help, figure everything out by yourself, there isn't even a text help file you can read
- LAGGY interface, you never know if you actually clicked something or not
- BAD graphic, I know not to expect much, but the ships looks bad, so does the sea
- NO FUN its a really really boring game, doubt most people will finish the first battle (takes quite a while)


Worst of all:
- NO POINT - It was an absolutely pointless experience
