I am happy to see that our Battlefields Civil War game started to appear on the various AppStore in those parts of the world were it is already the 6th of Feb.

Thanks (again) to all of you who provided feedback in general and provided feedback during the test phase.

As a teen i loved this game: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_Line:_1914-1918

This iOS release seems to be somewhat similar. I hope they will create and iPhone version!

No, we had three AI levels in our first game but found out that the AI difficulty setting was hardly changed by anyone. So we took the best one from our first game and improved it a bit.

Yes... and with the companies track record some reviews are certainly in order before I jump to make a purchase. Plus, with Shenandoah Studios, a trusted developer, civil war game and Ultimate Generals, which is looking incredibly promising, both nearing release I have to ask, beside getting to market first why should I chose this title over either of the other two, or do I really need three civil war games?

I appreciate that one in an RTS and one is on an operational level but still I'm very eager to see how this title holds up. A shame that demo's are a dead concept.

Beyond the fact that the two reviews in English are in fact the same review, that term entirely undeserved as first impression would be far more accurate, I can't say that it is paticularly helpful. Perhaps, in a few days when reviewers, those with integrity, have had sufficient time to apply a critical lens.

I do appreciate the links. Thank you, of course, unfortunately I neither speak Polish nor Norwegian. Still, appreciated.

Now, I will confess that historical accuracy isn't overly important to me, but out of curiosity, why include such unit specific identifications and then change their places and times of arrival on the battlefield? I'd imagine for game balance but perhaps there are specifics, just as an insight into the development.

Are you suggesting that the sites which have posted reviews (including www.wargamer.com) sofar lack integrity? None of these sites conduct paid/sponsored reviews...

Not sure which details you are looking for which are not covered at www.wargamer.com, present on our website. Please elaborate.
