Top 5 Civil War Games for PC
Ever wanted to experience the American Civil War? We have made this list of our top 5 civil war games to help school you in the most historically accurate way possible.

1. Sid Meier's Gettysburg!

What is this??? An army for ants?

As seen from future titles, Sid Meier's games have always been a force to be reckoned with and a much older Sid Meier's Gettysburg! is no different. Developed by Firaxis Games in 1997, Sid Meier's Gettysburg! puts you in the middle of the Battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War.

But, Mr Author Sir, there are a few games based on Gettysburg, what makes this different? Simply put, because it's simple and beautiful and it's Sid Meier. The artwork, the interface and the fact that you can play online or via LAN is a definite win for Sid Meier's Gettysburg!. Everything is accessible with the simple click of the mouse.

Rally to your general... click! Entrench your troops... click! All in real time! There is a tremendous amount of detail. Even the sounds of the gunshots are pleasant.

With the ability to play on either side and a choice between a single scenario or campaign mode, the choice is yours on how you wish to kick ass and take names in your own historically correct (or incorrect) way.

If you love Sid Meier, if you love the Civil War, then Sid Meier's Gettysburg! is your game.

My rating 4.5/5
