Title: 1775: Rebellion
Release Date: 29 Sep, 2016
Unfortunately there's no way you can speed up the slow sea transporation or skip the dice rolls. Speaking of dice rolls, the computer seems to have loaded dice. I'll send my massive army only to have half of them run away, while the rest get cut down by the tiny army of the computer's - nine times out of ten, it rolls hits. It's like the Keystone Cops armed with plastic cutlery versus 1\/2 a T-800. It suffers from the same the cheaty-mc-cheat-cheat dice from 2007's RISK.. Great game that accuately embodies the board game of the same name. The AI needs improvement so I am looking forward to the upgrade, but otherwise very enjoyable. Hope to see the other games in the series on Steam soon!. Overall, 1775 does a great job in translating a good board game to the PC. If you don't mind playing an AI that is less than competitive --- even on the hardest setting --- or you just want to learn the rules of the game playing solitaire you will enjoy this title. I found the graphics and art appropriate.
If you are like me and want to play the game with other people then that is where 1775 fails miserably. While the game states it supports multiplayer --- several types of multiplayer --- in it's current implementation it is not usable. The "online" multiplayer is really glorified play by email but worse. When it comes time for your opponents turn the game screen closes to the main menu --- you are not able to even view the board! --- and all decisions that are supposed to involve you are handled by the AI (poorly?). In reality you are playing when it's only your turn or 50% of the time. Completely unaccpetable. Once I discovered this I decided to try the local multiplayer thinking the developers provided this option knowing that some people will not enjoy the asynchronous, let the AI make my moves during the other persons turn and during this time I see none of what transpires option. It works extremely well EXCEPT information that is supposed to be private --- the cards in the current player's hand --- are publicly visible with no ability to hide them. A simple click-to-show option solves the problem but is missing.
For me the lack of a functional multiplayer option is a dealbreaker. Had I known in advance how multiplayer is implemented I definitely would not have purchased the game at any price let alone the $25 retail price. I am hopeful HexWar is planning enhancements to the multiplayer functionality, but they have not responded to my inquiries on this topic.
[EDIT] HexWar has been extremely responsive and added a feature to allow toggling card visibility so there is at least one viable multiplayer option. Now, with a an optional multiplayer mode our group can actually play the game.. No really.. love the board game and this is a faithful rendition of it, no need for the long setup of the board game because its all taken care of by the PC. So, for any strategy game lover , this will certainly satisfy. Nice capture of history in an enjoyable turn base war game.. I am experienced player of the original board game. I bought this PC version of the game when it first came out and the developers has done a great job fixing all the bugs. They have been very responsive. Currently at v1.05 I have yet to find any bugs. At its hardest level the AI can be beaten many times but not easily. The AI is challenging and requires your concentration. However, the AI doesn't always make smart moves and on rare occasion, very ridiculous moves that would cost the AI the game. I have been beaten by the AI a couple times and in one game, it ended in a draw.
I can't say anything for multiplayer because I haven't tried it yet. The AI is worh playing in a solitare game and preps me for the board game with friends when I haven't played it in a long time. This game is worth buying for both new and experienced players of the original board game.. Poorly tested and frustrating to play. Maybe it will be stable later, but certainly not yet.. I love this game. The physical one. The issue I have with this version of the game is that it's not at all like playing someone at the same table. You can't see the opponents moves. You can't even be in the game when your turn is done. You get booted back to the main screen at the end of your turn. If you want to play asynch it's fine I guess, but if you want to play someone live as if you're at a virtural table this version of the game is terrible for that. Terrible. Waste of my money.. If you are into playing board games than I think you will like this game. I never played the physical verison of 1775: Rebellion but I imagine this game plays very similiar to it. I have been playing war board games for 20 years and this game is right up my alley So far I have played 3 complete games, 1 American and 2 British, and I feel that I could play many more before the game begins to lose it's replay value.
Games typically take about an hour to complete against normal AI settings, playing the standard long game. I have not yet played the shorter game or the Seige of Quebec. Will probably play those after my current playthrough. I also havn't tried the multiplayer.
I have found a few bugs in the game but nothing that will break the game or ruin your game.
