Gods and Generals is a historical, first-person shooter video game developed by Anivision Value and published by Activision. Based on the film of the same name, players will be thrown into the bloodiest battles of the American Civil War, an event so earth-shattering, it divided a nation, split families and altered the very course of North American history. Players will assume the role of a civil war solider, choosing either to side with the Union or the Confederacy, and charge alongside thousands of men into glorious battle [2]. As the action and drama quickly unfolds, players will be tasked with various missions such as raids and reconnaissance, to leading a full army company. Epic battles ranging from the Second Battle of Bull Run, the battle of Chancellorsville to the battle of Fredricksburg, players will be equipped with historically-accurate muskets, revolvers, sabers and other instruments of war. This nine part campaign game uses various scenes from the aforementioned film [3].

Gods and Generals was released on March 1, 2003 as a PC Windows exclusive [4], and was critically panned by the media and gaming community.

Critical Reception[edit]

Gods and Generals was universally panned by critics. The aggregate score of 19 based on Metacritic suggests that the game was also a commercial failure, and is ranked among the worst video games of all time [5].

Common complaints associated with the game include:

  • Lack of game physics (NPCs clipping through solid objects)
  • Excessive reuse of character models
  • Unresponsive AI
  • Steep learning curve [6]
