While some things may seem self-evident (such as it being pure folly to charge a Skirmish unit into an entrenched line Infantry unit holding onto a ridge), other things are not as apparent. Artillery is one that kind of puzzles me because even though enemy units are within the range cone, certain units are not bombarding unless I move them forward. I believe this has to do with terrain and line of sight; however I cannot seem to have the individual unit LOS display (as depicted in one of the tutorial vignettes).
There seems to be a robust set of options for setting up a skirmish type game, and I have so far won two and lost two while learning the ropes. There are Steam Achievements, however oddly enough there are only three: one for winning any single battle, and the other two for winning the whole things (one as a Union general, the other as a Reb general).
I have to say the game is a lot of fun and at its current price on Steam it is an insane value. Anyone with even a passing interest in infantry formation warfare, the Civil War period in general, or games that just simply work right out of the box would probably enjoy this game.
