History Channel Civil War: Secret Mission

Assume the role of Union and Confederate soldiers fighting behind enemy lines in legendary battles with HISTORY Civil War: Secret Missions. Your goal is to disrupt the armies of both the North and the South by any means necessary, including conducting train raids, stealing ironclad ships, stopping enemy supply lines, destroying enemy artillery and more. All events are drawn from the real life actions of famous partisans, scouts and rangers - fight as a member of Mosby's Rangers, Sheridan's Scouts and Grant's Secret Service and receive your mission commands from famous generals including Robert E. Lee, "Stonewall" Jackson, and Ulysses Grant. The action accurately reflects the guerrilla tactics of the time period. Weapons include the shotgun, the pepperbox revolver and the coffee mill gun, and there is heavy reliance on scouts and naval warfare.

CONFEDARATES RULE
This game, is awesome I'll first start off with the graphics they pretty good,although not as good as playstation 3 or xbox 360 and the PC versions but its still a decent amount of graphics. Next the Sound, the sond could use a little more work, because when i use the spencer carbine or the henry rifle i'd fire rapidly and the reload sound would be way off so overall the sound would be a six or seven i dont know.Next the challenge is defenitly a ten i died about thirty times in one level because of a small crate or barrel.Now I'll start with the AI its a seven or eight pretty good but the soldiers randomly charge and get killed which is really stupid BUT still i mean they sed those tactics like charge flank and manuver. the story lines are great you get to see some of the greatest generals like R.E.LEE and Stonewall Jackson. the interface is okay but not great lets put it at a five or so but lets not get to far So overall great game

I like this game.It's so intense. It's like a real war .But just to let you know,it's pretty challenging.When I finished it, I felt that there should be more missions.

This game is really cool. I got this for the PS3 and it was great. The AI is pretty good but sometimes they will shoot to the left or right of you when your right in front of them and sometimes they will have a dead on aim and kill you in one shot. When that happens you WILL get pretty mad. I did not understand the storyline at all. Instead of trying to explain stuff they should have just said "Okay men, your going here, here's your gun, and kill everybody in sight!". That would have been so much easier to understand if they said that. The sound is really good excepts for some very minor glitches. The challenge varies. Some levels will take you 5 minutes when some will take you 30 minutes or longer. Sometimes the AI will be so good and kill you everytime so that makes the level longer then it should be. The graphics are great (remember I bought this for the PS3) and overall it's a great game and is very long. So if you like shooters, war games, or just want a fun game, get Civil War Secret Missions for PS3. It's a great game and you will not be dissapointed.

OK what has happened to the game industries these days. OK first of let me just say this this game is CRAP!!!!Now the games has a strange but satisfying story line. But the game play is just upsetting. Sticky controls that are just way different from the first one.( The first one was good) I know what your thinking come on its a recent game it should have descant graphics. But no not even that the case is misleading(I know surprise)But I thought I would have a fun time killing rebel solders. Its not, AT ALL. The AI is terrible and your gun seems to no damage at all. Save your hard earned cash on something better please. I'm pretty sure the funding for this game was pocket lint and a button. I guess I'm just stubborn with my games. Take it from me this game is no fun at all. I recommended you don't waste your money. ITS crap lets leave it at that.

this game is okay only if you absolutely LOVE the Civil War. if you dont know much about history and you just want a shooter then dont buy this game. I'm from Kentucky and i thought this game was not very good. it was redicoulus how enemys died. they would fly back about 60 feet every time you shoot em. the only mission i kinda liked was the one where you were in the iron-clad ship and you had to destroy the enemy outposts. that was okay but not very good. I like strategy, shooter, and action games. when i grow up im gonna join the marines. this game was a kinda okay experience. I like games where you work in a squad or group that way you have a little bit of command and its easier to do multiple tasks. this game lets work in a squad but all they do is shoot and they never kill anybody. all they do is sit there and waste an unlimited amount of ammo that they have. plus you can only carry one gun in this one i think. i might be thinking of a different civil war game that either let you take 1 or 2. idk, but whatever. The only reason i put the storyline so high was because it was about the civil war which i respect and i have studied. peace out, Dillon Spencer

Medal of Honor fan
THIS IS THE WORST GAME I'VE EVER PLAYED! I hate this game, and whoever is thinking about buying this game, well take it from me, FORGET IT! The guns that you use most is just a crummy Henry Rifle, I know its the civil war, but every gun is worse than bolt action, and the sniper in that game loads by your character taking a thin pipe pushing a bullet down the barrel, and firing.(it takes a lot longer in the game). And the story line sucks so bad, one level you're the Union Army, and the next level you'll be the Confederacy. The last time I played this game, it always freezes sometimes when you get to a checkpoint, and you have to do the level again. Also this is one of those games were you don't have any idea what to do and you play for hours just to figure out what to do. I wouldn't recommend this game to ANYONE! Trust me, this is the worst game i've ever played. EVER!

Theres not much to say. The game is well a waste of money. Buy the original or just stay far far away. It has serveral missions but only one gun can be carry by the solider! It seems crazy but true. The graphics are ok nothing amazing.
