“When I purchased it I was a bit intrigued about this game. After a few hours of playing it, I am still intrigued about this game.”
http://kriegsimulation.blogspot.co.at/2015/11/the-seven-years-war.html

“Empire: Total War stares in disbelief, as a single man slaps its face with a glove. It feels as futile as the Prussian guard's assault at Kolín. But the bayonet is firmly fixed, and a the face underneath the grenadier's hat shows determination: Oliver Keppelmüller's strategy game, The Seven Years War (1756-1763) doesn't fawn before bigger titles.”
