History Channel Civil War: Secret Mission
fighting behind enemy lines is too devious
i have had this game for nearly 2 years now. i am a histori fanatic and a lover of shooter games. i really like this game with all the antique fire arms and the historical landmarks. this game is great for some one interested in the civil war and likes to fight with ancient guns so histori lovers you should want to buy this game.
I love history so this was a good game for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This game has way better graphics and a few more guns than the first civil war game by the history channel and is pretty great.
its a great game if you love history this is the game for you! me i love civil war history and and the game puts you in what hapen back then!
Maybe a 10
This game is THE BEST GAME EVER. I WOULD PUT IT UP THERE WITH MADDEN 06. A few hard levels, but you can't lose hope in civil war. Game is great for people who love them some achievements. ALSO STA-DAWG MUST BUY THIS GAME!!

Each level begins with a documentary video describing your mission and the importance it played in the Civil War.
this game sucks and if u buy it u will want your money back trust me i bought it!
Actually Good !!!
I love history and I love gaming, but don't think they could go together good. Well this game surprised me. It was actually not that bad as it sounds. Grahpics were great and the gameplay was familiar, it was kind like playing COD but in the Civil War). Another good thing is that you get a lot of information about what when on in the Civil War. Like I didn't know that their were snipers back then and that they had some form of a gernade. Their are some bad things about the game. One thing that got on my nerves is that I heard the same dialoge fifty times in one mission. Voice acting in this game isn't great. AI can use some work in this game. If I could use a knife in this game I could probably get through the game with just that. What got on my nerves the most was that the enemys won't even take cover half the time, they would just run up to you and atart bashing you on the head with their weapon. All and all this was a good game.
I have played many of the first person shooters(cod, halo, gears of war,medal of honor, and all the other great titles) and am a fan. I also LOVE the civil war so when they combined i was like OH MY GOD!!!!! like others, i too thought there was going to be thousands vs thousands of soldiers, but that's alright. The graphics could have been better, but they were not bad. The A.I. is just like CW: A Nation Divided. The (ally) soldiers pop out of thin air and run straight into the line of fire and die over and over again in a never ending process.I wish they payed attention to the characters like other games. For example in the end of CoD4 i know people who nearly cried when Capt. Price died (obviously they were big fans).One last thing is if it takes say 7 shots to kill a man and you shoot 6 shots the character shows NO reaction at all. I know there are a lot of cons in here and this thing was supposed to make CW:SM look good in the eyes of readers but that's for the people who want to know what it has. Its an overall AWESOME game and if you dot mind any of the previous cons the BUY IT!!!!!!! P.S. And to you idiots out there the reloading is "too slow" because its the CIVIL WAR! 1860s for God sakes.
to anyone who says this is a terrible game...
This game is not meant for everyone and to really enjoy it, it helps if you appreciate things that really did happen in the specific locations in the game. I really liked how the events were real and researched by the history channel. Now it seems they didnt really try hard with the graphics but they still managed to capture the realism of southern weather and envirements. I can back that up because i live in lynchburg virginia wich is were alot of the war was fought. Now for gameplay. The controls are greaat and are similar to that of cod series. They are really smooth and easy to get used to. The weopens are all basicaly different and each might be able to carry more ammo, or do more damage. Also you can get ability points to apply damage or more health or more ammo. The game is really hard and will have you playin for a good week if you have a life. Possibly 3 days haha. Normal is hard enouph and i wouldnt play on hard ever. The weopens are historic and real. The loading is accurate to the way they really loaded like using ramrods and muzzle loading. The ai is really smart and has inpecable aim. They unlike other games dont care if you have a family back home or a wife that loves you but will hit you on target. They charge fast shoot streight and can and will kill you atleast once in every level. take my advice and buy this game
