A decent Waterloo sim?
« on: May 15, 2010, 02:02:43 PM »
Hi all,

Anyone know of a decent Waterloo sim? I used to have one on the Atari ST years ago used 3D vector graphics (cutting edge at the time), and a turned based one on the PC about 10 years ago played on a hexagon map.

After something quite strategic, I don't mind about graphics but half decent would be nice.

I already have the Napoleonic mod for Rome. After something with correct army sizes.

Any suggestions, let me know.

Cheers

Wait... You want to play a sim game based on Napoleonic era? Never heard of something like that but if you're interested in RTS games I would suggest you Cossacks II Napoleonic Wars...

Just really after a good representation of the battle of Waterloo. Not interested in empire building or resource management, just want to re-fight that battle.

Huh... A whole game based on one battle would be kind of weird... I've never heard of something like that...

Well there's the BBC online version, but in that you literally just select 1 of 2 decisions at each stage of the battle. I can dig it out from my favourits if you want, but I doubt that's what you're after really. Other than that, I bet there are some good Waterloo maps for AOEIII.

And there must be some kind of Waterloo scenario in Cossacks...

@silver wolf. Yep, that was the only battle sim you used to really be able to get. I remember a series of games which covered several big ones including waterloo, austerlitz, quata-bras, borodino, gettysburg etc. There was also great battles of Caesar with several of his best one in it. Ah, the days of owning a 486 pc.
