With me! With me!! Charge!!!
Napoleonic Wars is a really addicting game. It has some great moments especially with friends. Just the other day in command mode, a friend called for me to save him. He was the last man in his unit of line, an officer who's men fell to a swift cavalry charge. He was running towards me while being pursued by a single lancer, another officer in fine head dress, who was adamant to run him down. I was a captain of Hussar Cavalry, while I ordered my men to hold position, I alone raced forward to save him. Positioning my horse between he and the Lancer, I charged from a trot to a full gallop and ran him through with the razor point of my saber. Once you get past the lance tip, it is a bit like killing rabbit. He was thrown from his horse, dead, as the beast ran back to their line. I saluted my officer friend with my saber and he did the same. We both returned to the line, the day's fighting had only just begun.
These are the kind of moments you can expect in Command Mode of Napoleonic Wars. If you are a fan of the time period or the great book series "Sharpe" by Bernard Cornwell then you will love this game. You can even role play as the 95th Rifles from the series as the Greencoats are present on the United Kingdom side. I, however, usually play the French. Look for me on the battlefield, my name is Jean-Luc Pierre.
