Excerpt: We’re constantly lead to believe by video games that war is a non-stop thrill-o-rama, with explosions, manly fistfights and slow-motion bits where you shoot a man through the nostrils whilst rappelling through a window. Few games explore the other side of warfare, the admin, the long hours of boredom and the tedious business of making sure your soldiers have all the important bits they need, like food and bullets.
Conclusion: March of the Eagles is a very strong contender in the historical wargame genre. This historic era is under-represented in today’s video game market and is a fantastic change of pace from playing games based on either World War II or conflicts centered in the Middle East. This game is not for everyone! You must constantly micro-manage your finances, diplomacy, research, and troop movement in order to remain a contender in the Napoleonic Wars power struggle.
