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: 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: By the review title, how much you will enjoy Waterloo: Napoleon's Last Battle (WNLB) depends on what you expect of it. In the tactical scale (the interaction of the combat battalions, or "units"), Breakaway has certainly done a commendable job of evolving the SMG game engine to cover Napoleonic-era...
Summary: I was really excited about this game. Unfortunately it does not live up to expectations. The graphics are not up to standards achieved on some other strategy simulations (the Cossacks preview, for example). Movement, at least on my PC,(which is able to handle B17 2 with no problems)is not smooth.
