Has anyone seen this? I was looking through the games on Steam for the Summer Sale and I stumbled across the early access for this. It definitely looks nice.

I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Feels like, but is in fact much better than, the total war battles. The chap "Darth" who made it is a very successfull modder fromthe total war community. Updates coming weekly so don't worry about it being an early access not getting completed, Darth is a dependable sort.

Highly recommended if you liked TW style battles. I don't care much for the ACW (being British I'm more into glorious Napoleonic stuff) but I'm loving it all the same.

I picked it up when it first came out (like a week ago). I haven't played it thoroughly but enjoyed what I did play. It seems to have a lot of potential, however I'd remember that it's currently a work in progress. When I played it last week, there was no ability to group units (which they have since patched in). It'll be great when it's done.

If you're looking for good wargames, I need to mention Unity of Command. It's a finished product with some DLC map packs. It's really quite impressive, approachable, and on sale on steam. I can't recommend it enough.

There's room in my game library for both.

Unity is pretty good. I have had it for some time, but haven't put a lot of time into it. Ultimate General caught my eye with the connection to the Total War Darthmod.

It's good. For the price you can't go wrong if you're interested in the history of the Civil War.

You PC war bastards should pick up Graviteam Tactics too if you don't have it. Super cheap (75% off).

I've been enjoying UG as well. I really like the point of view and the style of the graphics. Curious to see how the multiplayer works out.

(FWIW, I recently picked up Unity of Command but only did the tutorial and intro scenario...more to come on that).
