Impression's sequel to Robert E. Lee: Civil War General expands coverage of the American Civil War to include over forty battle senarios (historical and "what ifs"). The game also provides an option to play as either the union or confederate forces (in the first game you could only play as the Southern forces in the campaign game).
Civil War Generals 2: Grant - Lee - Sherman features options to control the action from command to unit levels, in overhead view or with a zoom-in function that takes you to battlefield perspective. You can recreate (or re-write) historic battles or play a full campaign game where both casualties and experience carry over to the next battle.
Civil War Generals 2: Grant - Lee - Sherman contains five multi-player options including "hot seat," modem, serial cable, LAN or Internet. Another enhanced feature of the game is the inclusion of a scenario editor that allows you considerable latitude to alter existing battlefields or create new ones based on real Civil War maps or your imagination. In addition to the huge increase in battle scenarios, Civil War Generals 2: Grant - Lee - Sherman introduces new unit types (Mortars, Horse and Heavy Artillery, Gunboats, Frigates, Engineers) and new terrain types (Forts, Walls, Swamps, Water, Major Roads, Coastline) to augment those from the first game of the series. ~ Michael L.
