Gettysburg: Scourge of War isn’t a real-time strategy game for the masses. It has a perfectly functional interface, but you’d never call it “slick.” It’s more study-intensive than the comparably simplistic Total War real-time strategy games but yields commensurately higher returns. It tackles the mother of all Civil War battles with aplomb and occasionally startling historical verisimilitude, offering control of blues and grays from army scale down to regimental level. It’s wargaming without apologies, designed by hardcore history buffs for hardcore history gamers.
Welcome to Scourge of War: Gettysburg, a real-time 3D Civil War computer game developed by NorbSoftDev, the company headed by renowned game designer Norb Timpko, designer of Mad Minute Games’ acclaimed Take Command series.
