    Ive been fiddling around with the demo and as a longtime fan of the Total War series i find Scourge of War Gettysburg to be better in terms of an overall strategy/tactical/realism wargaming experience.
    The gameplay is quite good, and altho the maps are 3-D the units themselves are sprites...so dont expect top notch graphics.

    I like games like this a lot, but this one seems older, on amazon, it says you need xp home.

    Actually its only about 2 years old. And it was made a very small team of developers hence the very average graphics.
