American History Lux is a great game for any player who loves the original Lux or the board game Risk. The Demo lets you go as far as the Mexican/American War and makes you want to play more. The game offers 4 different difficulty levels from Recruit to General. If you buy the full version, (the cost is $20 but the coupon code can knock it down to $12) all the wars are pretty easy (in the recruit level) after the Mexican/American War except for Vietnam. I have yet to conquer that level, but obviously its possible.

I was dissapointed in the fact that you cannot play against others online. Playing against the computer gets old, In my opinion I need more out of a game; Being able to socialize and play online is a great feature that this game NEEDS.

I was not really dissapointed but just a little bothered that you couldn't play as the other side. Like in Vietnam, you couldn't play as Cambodia, or in WW2 you couldn't play as Germany. You were always playing as the United States, or the UN. I guess the title does explain why though.

American History Lux is one of those games like Spider. You play a war for 15 minutes or so, and your done for the day. It's a game to play if your bored or feel in the mood for a strategy game. Hey, thats a good thing. This game employs strategy, learning of geography, and fun. American History Lux is a good game, but could use some polishing up.
