Summary: If you have even a passing interest in the era of Napoleon and play video games, this is a wonderful addition to your collection. Though the instructions are long, the game is worth the time and very playable over and over again.
Summary: History first, as this is an eight-year old game. I am a great fan of "Sid Meier's Gettysburg!" from which this game borrows its engine. I also have played Antietam, the second franchise of Gettysburg.
Summary: I was in love with gettysburg and antietam, and waterloo came out and eagerly baought it. The game is very good but there are several problems with it that are so big, I have to badly rate the game. The first is cavalry iss WAY too powerful.
Summary: Having found my copy of Gettysburg (The best PC game of all time) out of order, several years ago I turned to Waterloo as a substitute. I have no stopped playing it since (Even when Gettysburg worked again). The game is complex, realistic and beautifully detailed.
Summary: Based upon the successful Gettysburg engine this game shares many of the same faults, but does have a few benefits. The good news is that Cavalry is back in. Gettysburg had miserable cavalry which dismounted to attack and basically fought as infantry.
Summary: What a waste of money! If you are thinking of getting this game then wait until the price drops to about a quarter or what it is because that's all it's worth! The good points are: There is a flashy title page with a nice little tune.
Summary: Someone who'd never played any of the games of this type (like Gettysburg, etc.) will find it very difficult to figure out which troops you're controlling at any time. The mass of little flags on the map are difficult to control, and if you're not used to 18 C army structure you might find it...
Summary: This is the first, and so far the only game from this company I've ever played. Out of all my favorite games, this is my favorite. The graphics are fine, but I've seen better, but are not as bad as some of the reviews depict. The history in this game is perfect.
