  • Summary: With this new offering from Matrix Games and Adanac, players may command the historic, powerful armies of France & Austria as they face off against each other in a clash that would be destined to defeat Austria but prove for a brief time that Napoleon could indeed be stopped. Players will be able to take command of the French forces under Napoleon or Austrians under Charles and strike at each other over a large hex-based map. Cavalry, infantry, artillery, engineers, leaders, supply wagons, depots, and other counters may be maneuvered for maximum military effect, while the flexible combat system may be used either through the game system itself or through miniatures play.

  1. The elegant gameplay and low price make this an excellent purchase for gamers who still appreciate what operational-level Napoleonics are all about, and how good they can be if done right. [Nov 2004, p.86]
  2. This game definitely isn't for everyone, but masochists who find fascination in supply wagons, attrition, and the confusion of horse-powered communications might find it enjoyable...and become closer friends with their inner geek. [Dec 2004, p.99]
