About This Game
Gettysburg: The Tide Turns is a hex-based wargame set in one of the most decisive and iconic battles of the Civil War. 150 years ago, brave soldiers fought across this idyllic battlefield, and, now, we put you in their shoes.
 

A Period Piece
The game captures the realities of 1860s combat through the granularity of hex based gameplay and an innovative randomized turn system. It is a tense and strategic package from the full, sweeping campaign to individual scenarios.

Plan Your Engagement
Featuring the work of some of the best artists in the business, the game map and interface capture the period while providing the information you need as a commander.

Exciting and fast paced gameplay
You will command a myriad of period units including infantry, cavalry, and artillery. Units vary in strength and morale, and, much like Battle of the Bulge, your success will depend on how you maneuver your forces and engage the enemy. Gettysburg: the Tide Turns goes beyond the "you go, I go" turn by randomizing when each division will move. This provides tension, as you must respond tactically as new opportunities present themselves.

Features:
   Play as the Union or Confederates across the entire scope of the battle
   Tutorials and easy entry for new players
   Full game rules and information for hardcore players
   An innovative movement system that randomizes turns for increased tension
   Beautifully rendered maps & interfaces in period style
   Extensive historical commentary & content included
   Play online, face to face, or against AI opponents

Sure; but I'll wait for it to be on Steam (and for initial bug stomping.)

I'll be getting the new Kursk game though!

6.99 on Steam.

I usually get direct from Matrix as you get the standalone game + Steam key (if on steam). Sometimes the price is higher though.

Yeah, I did get the Kursk game, but I traded it in for this. The Kursk game was supposed to have a campaign, but looked like it still had three single missions. I'll probably get it later.

Battle Hymn: The Tide Turns (or whatever it should be called ;) ), still has some bugs to tweak out, as of my test play this morning, mainly having to do with showing newly active units (instead of centering on the map as current, requiring you to scroll around or next-click cycle to find them) and opponent-bombarding units (which the game's camera totally ignores). The upper map edge doesn't scroll either. The sounds abruptly dropped out about 4 turns in and refused to come back without a reload, too.

These are sloppy for a game that has been in development for three years, but they're fixable and don't break anything. As an adaptation, more or less, of a board game coming out this year, it's a nice system.
