American Civil War

TalonSoft's award-winning Battleground Series returns to the ever popular American Civil War! Battleground 7: Bull Run delivers two epic battles for the price of one!

July 21, 1861

The earliest large-scale engagement of the Civil War, the First Battle of Bull Run found J.E. Johnston's outnumbered Rebels fighting a desperate delaying action versus the powerful Union army of Irvin McDowell. It was in this battle that General Thomas J. Jackson earned his famous nickname "Stonewall".

August 28 - 30, 1862

During the following summer, Robert E. Lee lured John Pope's Union army into a deadly trap on the already blood-stained fields of Manassas. Known as the Second Battle of Bull Run, this smashing Confederate triumph paved the way for Lee's subsequent invasion of the North!

Reviews:

Strategy Plus by Chuck Klimushyn

"Bull Run continues TalonSoft’s blend of multimedia gloss with a rock-solid regimental-level wargame. The game combines period accurate music, reenactment FMV sequences, and convincing armament sound effects to deliver TalonSoft’s trademark “You are there” experience. The reenactment sequences are entertaining enough to leave toggled on far longer than most other competitors’ efforts. The artillery sequences are especially well done and worth the slight delay in game play to view."

"'One of the most noteworthy new additions to TalonSoft’s engine is the inclusion of Internet play. This has been extremely well implemented. Players with access to a TCP/IP connection can engage in head-to-head play for the cost of a local phone call and the connect charges of their Internet provider. The movement of enemy units is seen as they come into view, as opposed to the playback function of email contests. This can have quite an emotional impact when one sees a divison’s worth of hostile units roll out of a patch of woods unexpectedly..."
