Computer Games Magazine- 4/5
"an excellent, original wargame about the American Revolutionary War, one that utilizes the best elements of boardgame presentation without overly abstracting from the actual gameplay."
Out Of Eight Game Reviews - 8/8
"Overall, Birth of America features the best grand strategic gameplay I’ve seen since Europa Universalis,(...). Any self-respecting fan of strategy and war games should pick up Birth of America, as it delivers the whole package strategy fans desire." "Probably the best grand strategy game out there"

"A stunningly beautiful game which covers a period lacking much prior attention. Super AI and very challenging, yet also easy to jump right in and play. All the factors of warfare in the era (leadership, logistics, population control, and so forth) are included. If you have any interest at all in this time, buy it and prepare to write off all your spare time. It is that good!"

"Birth of America could have easily been a generic game set in 18th century North America by virtue only of graphics and text. Instead, the developer created gameplay to fit to the nuances and peculiarities of these wars, and the hard work paid off. The player’s role is limited at the strategic level, but depth of factors influencing outcomes necessitates thoughtful decisions that make Birth of America a unique and enjoyable game."
"...if you enjoy thinking strategically and are looking for a fresh and accessible game that doesn’t rely on excessive mouse clicking, then Birth of America might be the game for you."
