To put the DLC in simple terms:

"Für König und Vaterland!" - Prussia
”Vive l’Empereur!” - France
"Rule Britannia!" - English
“Scotland Forever!” - Scots
“Gott schütze den Kaiser!” - Austria
“Пуля - дура, штык - молодец!” - You'll find out what that is when you fight/play Russia

Very basic graphics but thats kind of the beauty of it not deamanding on your PC. Great game play, rush the flag on seiges really gives the feel of mass charge.
But no update for a while. Hope the Devs come back to it and make more out of this. A good bash well worth the price.

I was playing the napoleon DLC, joined this semi RP server ( don't kill surrenders, follow your officer, etc) Me and my company were defending a town, after a long battle we were the only ones left. The entire French army was coming towards us. It was a massacre, we were getting mowed down, we pulled back to the church with the last 5 guys.
Each of us got picked off, one by one, without mercy. I was the only one left against 47 French soldiers. I knew i had 10 maybe 15 seconds left before they would storm the church. Suddenly I saw a piano to my left, I dropped my weapons and went towards it. I sat down and started to play Ave Maria, It was beautifull, I hear a cracking sound, they broke down the wooden door. I prepare to get shot, but nothing happend, Their officer came to me. "well this is it, I guess" I typed in chat. "I'm sorry buddy" said the officer. I stood up and went on my knees. He took out his sword and with one slice he hacked in on me, twice.

whoa..... this game.... is F*CKING AWESOME! let me break it down for you; there are a whole lot of factions and battlefields, and the game is very diverse in play styles. this DLC is extremely realistic and it looks pretty good. despite the name, there isnt a lot of napolean in this game. excpet for the times you get to choose him as your troop.this DLC is different from the original game in the fact that there are a metric sh*it tone of guns and you dont have to pay for squat. all in all, I love this DLC and if you have the base game, I highly reccomend buying this DLC because you will have a TON of fun. I WILL SEE YOU ON THE FIELD MY COMRADES!!

You can join a regiment and do line battles, if you don't know what that is, then youtube it. It's really fun, but if that's not your style, then there are other ways to play the game. If you prefer american civil war than Napoleonic era, then there is a mod called North vs South that has plenty of player base. speaking of player base, if that is what you are worried about, then don't. There are a lot of people that still plays this game.

Best game 9/10

Become a lancer

Charged into battle

Enemy had a marching band

Marching band charge and murder me and about 3 other cavalry.

Then take over fort without a single shot fired while playing music.

Just swords............oh god the swords.

My second or third match ever.

There was an artillery breach on the fort walls.

The enemy was shooting everything that went through.

Allies were hesitating to go in.

I had a drum.

Started playing and walked calmly into the breach.

Everyone follows me, guns ablaze and bayonets fixed.

Some guy comments on chat: "this drummer is really an inspiration, standing his ground and playing amidst all the bullets"

Everyone on my team gets murdered around me.

I'm the only one left, still playing the drums in a corner.

An enemy flautist joins me on the concert at the corner.

We played for two minutes while everyone murdered each other around us.

We died at the end.

-10/10 Go buy this game, now.

I have put in, at this moment in time, 3,800 hours into this game. If that alone does not speak for how great of a game this is, then I can bring up a few points. Firstly, this game has THE best combat system in any game. The closest game I can think of (which still falls short) would be Chivalry. This game and most importantly, the Napleonic Wars DLC, rids us of pay to win or leveling up to get better weapons so you can make up for your poor skill. The time you put in pays you back by learning new tricks to get past the 2-4 directional attacks and blocks of your enemies. The skills you possess are direct reflections of how much effort you put into it. Secondly, the community is great, regiments (clans for those not in the know) are all over and meet together in events or linebattles as well as facing off against each other in 1v1s to see which regiment is superior in shooting, melee, tactics and teamwork with your fellow reg members. One event you may fight alongside another regiment where you work together to defeat the other team made up of many regiments themselves. While in the next you are opposed to each other and must fight those you relied on in the last event. And if regiments aren't for you then the pub life is ok too, there are many servers where all players are welcomed to fight it out in melee only servers, duels, battles and sieges, of just a few gamemodes to name. There is much to do and many people to meet from all over the globe. I hope this helps you in deciding whether to purchase this game or not, I have been meaning to make a review, but after all the time I spent in it, I didn't think my words would do it justice. Overall, I highly recommend this game above everything else and the Napoleonic Wars DLC is a must.
