Released in 1991, this is a very realistic war game on the most famous battles of Napoleon’s career — the game comes with Borodino, Waterloo, Quatre Bras, and Auerstadt, but you can design your own ones. You have the ability to play as either the French or the Allies, and all aspects of the battles are here — cavalry charges, artillery barrages, infantry squares, and so on. The EGA Graphics are pretty good, despite the age of the game. Downsides to the game are the STEEP learning curve — the manual is over 100 pages in length — no mouse support, and horrible sounding PC Speaker sounds. If you are looking for a good war game on Napoleon’s battles, and have the patience to learn this, this is the best game out there.
