Review on Armchair General
Birth of America 2 engages the player thoroughly... for the player interested in strategy this is a good choice.

Diehard GameFAN Review
Improved AI, a turn replay feature, and the inclusion of economic and social statistics adds even more depth to the already impressive historical emulation the original BoA game offered.

Review on PCDome.hu
8/10 - [Translated from Hungarian] It's a very nice game. Good to just watch the map and units...
