#AmericanConquestAnthologyReview Date of publish: 16/11/2020 20:21 CET While strategy is to be commended here, the incredibly dated engine and the beyond boring interface would be enough for any general to surrender before they even begin. There are a lot of troops to the battlefield which is a big factor for the games engine but come […]

#AmericanConquestAnthologyReview Date of publish: 16/11/2020 20:05 CET Whilst sipping rather salty tea, Nick Haywood reviews this historically based RTS and wonders whether wearing a Union Jack t-shirt in Boston was a good idea… Now it’s not often that we review anthologies, normally because we’d look at each individual game and the subsequent expansion packs as […]

Review from Armchair General Magazine

#AmericanConquestDividedNationReview Date of publish: 16/11/2020 19:45 CET If patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels as Samuel Johnson said, then semantics is the last refuge of designers of historical games. Using phrases like “based on” and “inspired by” allows designers to pick and choose the areas on which they want to concentrate. Historical purists will […]

Review from PC Gameworld

#AmericanConquestDividedNationReview Date of publish: 16/11/2020 19:40 CET American Conquest: Divided Nation is an unattractive RTS game that could have faired better if it had been released a few years ago. American Conquest: Divided Nation is a real-time strategy game, if can’t notice by the graphics. It is based upon events during the American Civil War, […]

#AmericanConquestDividedNationReview Date of publish: 16/11/2020 19:28 CET It’s a shame that there aren’t more strategy games set in 19th century America. For a period that enjoys so much attention from amateur historians and hobbyists, it seems like the neglected child of historical strategy games. We get tons of World War 2 games, a surfeit of […]

#AmericanConquestDividedNationReview Date of publish: 16/11/2020 19:16 CET LET’S REWIND TIME FIVE years… okay, American Conquest is a great game. It has cutting-edge isometric sprite-based graphics, support for armies of thousands of troops (putting Age of Empires in its place) and comes with nine massive campaigns that entertainingly display the time period just prior to the […]

#AmericanConquestDividedNationReview Date of publish: 16/11/2020 19:03 CET No divided opinion here over this one – it’s an RTS expansion snooze-a-thon Now let’s face it – the American civil war was not the most interesting of conflicts for a game. In fact, we’ve seen drunken scuffles outside The Pig Fancier’s Arms of a Friday night that […]

#AmericanConquestDividedNationReview Date of publish: 16/11/2020 18:49 CET Gameplay is more important than graphics, right? That’s what you’ll hear on any gaming message board, alongside posts where people are comparing benchmarks scores for their new $500 video card. We gamers can be a contradictory lot, wouldn’t you say? In American Conquest: Divided Nation, GSC Game World […]

Review from Eurogamer

#AmericanConquestDividedNationReview Date of publish: 16/11/2020 18:21 CET When was the last time you bought an isometric RTS and what was the game? Hard to remember, isn’t it? Me, I think my last pre-polygonal RTS must have been purchased around three years ago. The game was either Nival’s Blitzkrieg or this game’s grandpa, American Conquest. AC […]
