Needs a reset

Love playing these games I have all of them 62-65. Only problem I have is that there is no way to reset your progress to zero. It's kinda nice that you can go back and play any level you want. But If you want to replay the game from the start you still have all your progress saved. Makes it hard to keep up with where you are on the play through. Even if you delete the app and reinstall it still keeps your progress. If there is a way to delete the progress I can't find it!! Very annoying but then I keep playing, so...

Civil War 2

I like the game and play it often. Great alone as computer plays as a good foe. Historic similarities tend to limit ability of actual loser to reverse history. Graphics are fine but overwhelm the hex so you can't always understand angles of fire, especially when played first time in the woods. even when played multiple times it is confusing to determine elevations and what land hex is higher than others. Really enjoy hex games on computer as I played them decades ago on a board and this is a vast improvement.

Fun little wargame.

Nothing particularly extraordinary here. Your basic 20th century hex-based tactical US civil war game with an adequate AI for what is required of it. Kinda flavorless, in terms of sound effects, special rules and music, and it could have used a good UI pass. But still enjoyable. It's fun to charge the enemy's guns and to drive his army before you. I consider my 2 bucks well spent. If you like the free version, buy it.
