Default Ironclads

I see this ad all day while I am surfing the forums, so I checked the site out and the games look pretty fun. Has anyone bought and/or tried any of them?

I keep seeing the name Ironclad: High Seas and wonder what the point of "high seas" is since the first ironclads were mostly rivervine craft, and travel on the high seas was pretty much asking to be sunk by the sea.

AFAIK that's only true for America, most of the European Ironclads were ocean-going from the start.

Of course, since the game is about the American Civil War, that point is rather moot.

Been meaning to buy it for a while, might do so at some point soon...
