Amazon.com Review

Re-create the tactics of the great Civil War generals at Gettysburg and Shiloh with the Great American Battles Of The Civil War two-disk set from Mindscape. The software loads easily, providing intuitive game controls. Though the manual is a bit skimpy, you'll pick up the rules quickly, finding yourself maneuvering units just like Grant and Lee. The emphasis here is on small-scale tactical combat, so you'll move individual leaders, infantry and cavalry regiments, and artillery batteries on hex maps to re-create particular scenarios from either battle.

Play against the computer in one of two modes (all opposing units visible or only in line of sight) or challenge a friend. (Unfortunately, network play isn't an option.) The play is simple and fairly quick, and the graphics and sounds are OK--if comparatively unimpressive. Importantly, the balance between realism and playability is good. Serious war gamers will probably want to go for something more intense, like Sid Meier's Gettysburg. But for a quick, easy-to-learn tactical simulation, Great American Battles of the Civil War will do just fine. --Rob Lightner ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Civil War Masterpiece
This game is a Civil War classic that I would highly recommend. I have spent many enjoyable hours playing this game repeatedly as North or South against the Computer and against my friends. The Map is easily readable and the units are simplistic yet well organized and researched. This is not a game for those novices who play just for the cool sound effects and big explosions, this is a game for gentlemen who wish to actually be challenged. It requires critical thought and an ability to think ahead (almost like Chess). I highly recommend playing agianst friends who share your passion for real startegy games as they too will be able to appreciate the games finer points and offer a greater challenge than a normal AI could. I highly recommend this game!

1-0 out of 5 stars A stupid game
this game is very dumb. I would want to get sid mieir's gettysburg. the game doesn't even show the guys move, it shows little guys just standing there.

2-0 out of 5 stars A skimpy manual???
What manual?I ordered this for my husband, a huge Civil War buff, and thought he would love it.Unfortunately, there were no instructions.He can't figure out how to even play the game.We were very disappointed.I would not recommend this game to anyone.

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money like I did.
This package is really disappointing. The math programs are dismal. You click on buttons just to view a page from a math book. The Internet has interactive math websites that are far better. Unfortunately, I had to find that out after I spent my money. The earth and life sciences CD's are not too bad, but again the Internet has much to offer on these subjects for free. The history CD is a joke. The caveat here is to avoid buying these package deals and look for individual products.

Did you ever wish you could peer inside your PC or a hovercraftto see how they work? With easy-to-understand text and detailed,narrated animations, Interactive Technology gives you the chance to dojust that, offering a thorough introduction to the technologicaladvances that we rely on in everyday life.

This two-CD set divides technology into nine chapters, with such topicsas aircraft, power stations, land vehicles, and optics. Select thecomputer chapter, for instance, and you can step through 10 pagesexplaining everything from how bits and bytes encode data, to how ahard disk drive works, to the future of virtual reality and theInternet. Each page offers a brief audio introduction, a longerexplanatory text, plus thumbnails you can click on to see photos,animations, or video. Throughout the text, difficult terms areunderlined, and a simple click brings up a quick definition. At the endof each chapter there's a short multiple-choice quiz to checkcomprehension.

What really sets this program apart is the historical background itprovides for each topic. You don't just learn how a jet engine works,you also get to explore the history of flight, from da Vinci's earlysketches to hot air balloons and the Wright brothers. There's even anillustrated timeline, which spans technological achievements from theinvention of stone tools to the space station. We were also especiallyimpressed by the numerous animations. Accompanied by narration, theyshow the inner workings of machines in clear, detailed illustrations.

Suitable for students ages 8 and up, Interactive Technology offers anexcellent mix of technical detail and historical background. It'scertain to grab the interest of anyone with a nagging desire to knowjust what makes the world run. --Ken Feinstein ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

This is an adventure game at the heart of Roman power. Thanks to an innovative dialogue engine, the behavior of the characters closely simulates human reality. Depending on your behavior, their reactions can vary according to infinite combinations. Choose the appropriate attitude to make allies, to obtain information, to seduce, or to entrap.

In real time, explore luxurious locations: the Forum, the Temple of Vesta, Cicero's house, and the Roman port of Ostia. In a breathtaking reconstitution of the Roman world, you are confronted with the hustle and bustle of Roman daily life: learn how to count in sesterces, to wield a sword, or to prepare love potions. As an insider, discover the habits and customs of one of history's most fascinating civilizations.

The intrigue in Rome is not linear: several roads lead to the truth, all strewn with traps and pitfalls. The suspense continues to mount until the final, impressive public trial where you must confront the guilty parties before the mob in the forum. It is up to you to win their support by calling on witnesses and producing incriminating evidence. But watch out, time is limited, and the life of Aurelia is in jeopardy. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic idea, but needs XP update
Anyone have any ideas how to get this to install on Windows XP?

3-0 out of 5 stars Somewhat limited.
The game starts out very well. Clues and information piles up pretty fast. In fact, there are there are so many plots and plans happening in Rome, you might need a flow chart. But than, BAM, you hit a wall. For example, not to give anything away, I know where there are more clues to be had, but can't for the life of me know what item or information is needed to get at them. Also, while you know how much time you have left, you don't KNOW the date or time of day which would be nice. How can I go to a party or meeting I have been invited to, where I plan to pump people for more clues, if I don't know what the current date is? So what happens is I waste the last 20 days bouncing about trying to guess where the next clue is. Was this game even betatested? I give it 3 stars for the interesting setting and for the interesting files on Rome, but have to take 2 stars away for the hours I spent running around Rome and feeling very cheated, because I am sure I knew who did it, just could not prove it!

5-0 out of 5 stars I've been there!
I've bought Rome, Caesar's Will recently and wanted to share a few things with you out there.

I have been playing games for quite a while now. In fact, I remember inserting those gigantic floppy discs at the time when an Apple IIE was a force to be reckoned with... Like everyone, i've (and still do occasionally)enjoyed the shoot'em all and RPG games but I tend to find the Adventure games more mind boggling than the average blast it all game. With Rome, (i had never encountered that feature in a game!!) you can access many jargon free files describing the Roman world at this time (45 BC), its economy, politics, religion, everyday life, a bio of the characters (who really existed like Cleopatra or Brutus!!) and some pratical info to help you with your investigation. That comes in real handy as you have to choose your behavior with tricky people like Mark Antony (fellow Historians there will know what i'm taking about!). And no, this is not like eating a dozen encyclopedia, the info is really user-friendly and a pleasure to go through.

More, the Roman scenes encountered in the explorations are beautifully portrayed, researched to be historically accurate (i've checked on a few things -:)) and alone are worth the price of the program. I've found the animation good even though the characters get a bit blocky at times. The plot quickly becomes totally involving, you're not just a by-stander, so it's easy to become addicted!! I had to pay the price on a few mornings!!

So i'll recommend it for murder-mystery buffs and adventure fans. More, needless is to say that if you have an opened eye for Roman history....

When's the next episode coming up? ... Read more
