Weapons of the war are portrayed accurately and have corresponding reloading processes. For example, the rifled musket reloading process is lengthy, while the revolver's is quick. Although the game fails to separate the two factions and only placed one rifled musket in the Springfield, while the Confederates used them as field pickups they used Pattern 1853 Enfield.

Melee combat is also a large part of the game, just as it was during the war. The Bowie knife, and the cavalry saber are some of the melee weapons.

Each battle can be played on one of three difficulty modes: Easy, Normal and Hard. Completing the game on any mode unlocks an achievement.

No multiplayer features are present in the title, but the Xbox 360 version does support Leaderboards on Xbox Live. While the game specifications do include Downloadable Content, no content has been released yet.

Upon its release, Civil War received mixed reviews with the main criticisms being stale gameplay, average graphics, low difficulty, poor AI, and the short length of the game. However, many critics found the setting to be fascinating and the gameplay to be new.
