    "It's an okay game. It just has a theme around the Civil War, but not much beyond that. It could just as easily be any other major conflict and you probably wouldn't notice much difference."

    "Darkest of Days is the war game that allows you to jump around from some of the biggest battles through history. Playing in the Civil War or even one of the World Wars to save key persons of history from dying in the battles is the main goal. Fun and intense game from some of the defining moments of history."

    "This looks like a very solid Civil War game. It appears to be historically accurate which is always a good thing and the game play looks mostly good. The only problem I have with it is that the graphics are a little unimpressive."

    "If you're a civil war buff like me, you've got to get this one. It's gritty and realistic, and the game play is very satisfying. I've done some oddball strategies, and take a perverse pleasure in having the South win. Long live the Browncoats!"

    ""This War of Mine" illustrates war in the eyes of civilians. It is a very challenging game, but this game has taught me a lot about war and the people that are affected be it. Buy this game!"
