Want to be a brigader getting orders from Napoleon to take La Haye Sainte. Want to be D'Erlon with his corps leading the first attack.
Or how about Wellington defending the ridge.
Sow wwsterloo lets you do it all, 20 senarios were some you lead just a few thousand in others full armies.
The full battlefield of waterloo has been recreated in 3d, letting you play the full battle with a sprite ratio of 1:6 thats waterloo with 35 000 sprites.
Tho i have been told 1:4 ratio plays just as good. That would give you Waterloo with close to 50k sprites.
The game also have a campaign map of much of Belgium. Letting you split forces , move the about trying to find and trap the enemy.
A sandbox game is there to, simply choose and oob, who you want to control and go on sevral different maps.
Do you just want to be a bit player, be a brigader but choose the full 100 days oob, that way you control just a few thousand men in a battle of almost 200 000.
Orders are given and received by curries. Curriers that can be killed or captured (are they captured the orders end up in enemy hands)(this also aplies in multi player)
You even have headquarters in the saddle (HITS) only let's you see what your general can see, so want to give orders to a division general under your command, you either have to go there your self or send a currier. But remember if you get to close to the action you yourself can get killed or captured.
A long video of the game. while not the best video presanation I've seen, i do like the short clip showing the full battle senario of waterloo. It simply shows the scale of the french army
