Wars of Napoleon (PC)

User Rating: 5.5

AGEod goes back to the Napoleonic era and delivers the most detailed and comprehensive strategy game ever created about a time of struggle and conquest that forged modern Europe.

The engine has been refined to better represent the peculiarities of the period, allowing players to think and act as commanders of the Napoleonic era.

You are now able to manage the complexities of armies organization and logistics in a very detailed political setting, where each contender plays a vital part to the final outcome.

Establish your dynasty over most of Europe as Napoleon, or get rid of the Revolutionary tyrant as Britain. Also play as one of the other main contenders of the time such as Austria, Russia, Prussia, Spain or the Ottoman Empire and emerge amongst the victorious powers!

A turn-based strategy game set during the Napoleonic Wars. The game was developed by AGEOD, a developer considered to be an able strategy game maker. The game offers four different scenarios set within different periods of Napoleon’s rule. These include the so-called Grand Campaign (1805-1815) and a few smaller ones: Austerlitz (1805), Battle of Jena (1806), and Waterloo (1815). The battles are fought on the strategical level, so the player controls entire armies instead of individual soldiers. Apart form being able to control French forces, the player also has access to the British, Spanish, Russian, Austrian, Prussian, and Ottoman armies. The gameplay requires the player mainly to effectively lead their military forces, but also take manage supply lines, military improvements, and diplomacy. Similar to most of the previous games from AGEOD, this one also focuses on faithful recreation of historical events. However, the creators also allow the players to create alternative versions of history, providing the option to manipulate the outcomes of certain events.

“Just started playing my first grand campaign as Spain. Initial impressions are really good. Map is beautiful. UI has been tweaked, unit and map clicking seems faster and more responsive. Everything looks like this is a finely tuned and deep Ageod game. Very impressed so far.”
