Quoted from Sid Meier's Antietam Reviews:Check out these quotes from Sid Meier's Antietam reviews & previews
"Sid Meier's Antietam! may use a two-year-old graphics engine, but it packs a powerful punch with that old code, and deeply immerses the player into one of the most grim days this country has ever experienced. When you've finished playing the entire battle, pause it, and look around at the bodies strewn in the North Woods, along the Sunken Lane and by Burnside's Bridge. You can't help but feel a connection to the raw truth of what that horrible day must have been like, and that is a testament to the designers. Every once in a while, a wargame comes along that makes you think about war and all its terrible consequences--and this is one of them. But that doesn't mean I won't be booting it up to try my luck again tomorrow."
"All-in-all, Antietam! may not be a major gaming leap over its predecessor but then, given the quality of Gettysburg! it doesn't have to be."
"Yep, Antietam! isnt all about teaching history. It is a game first and foremost, and an incredibly fun one at that. Powered by a tweaked and updated Sid Meiers Gettysburg! engine, Antietam! picks up where Gettysburg! left off. Players have the option of either the Union or Confederate armies to battle with. Battles are fought in a real time setting, as battalion is pitted against battalion, and division is thrown up against division."
"ll things considered, Antietam! is a good game. It has lots of what strategy and war-gamers like -- tough decisions, realism, and detail. Unfortunately, its ho-hum graphics and clunky interface keep it from being a great game. So, despite the exclamation point, you won't find me shouting its name."
"Antietam! does just as good a job at recreating the feel of battle as Gettysburg! did. This game certainly could have benefited dramatically from an overhaul in the graphics department, but the gameplay remains top notch. The added refinements and tweaks make for some excellent gameplay and the addition of the scenario generator will add that much more in terms of replay value. Overall, wargame fans won't be disappointed with this latest creation from Sid Meier and company."
