Overall the game is better than ETW, It is more fluid and the battles are a lot better. No Rank and plattoon fire means units dont have a generic reload time. There is always shooting going on. The idea of bringing a historical general to the battle makes the game even better, if you take Napoleon as the french, your troops wont rout as quickly but you are 1200 gold down, whereas a General's staff will make troops run quicker but you will have more units ;).

The troops have alot better stats than ETW meaning they last longer in combat (depending on general you brought ;) ) The improved range on troops means skirmishers dont play a massive role in the game. Cavalry is also brilliant now, it plays more of a part in the game as they last longer in combat and they also kill more etc. Artillery battles make this game even better, art doesnt dominate the game but makes it more strategical, although not too happy with only being able to use round shot, canister and explosive rounds.

The maps are a lot better than ETW as well, I have played pretty much most of the maps for this game and they look and feel great. Even Grassy flatlands has been revamped and now is a little hilly and has more trees. The maps offer new ways of playing the game. On one map there is a massive hill on the side that dominates the battlefield and at the bottom there are small villages, Both teams start on facing each other at the bottom of the hill and there are pathways leading up to the hill, no one can spawn on top of the hill which means camping is alot harder. But i think that map is really tactical as you have to either separate your forces to fight on the hill and in the villages, or charge up the hill in the open and got shot to shit by cannons :D

So yeah, stop hating it and buy it :)

Have been playing the demo for a bit, and there is not much to do at all (as expected). If all you want to do is play one type of tutorial (which is basicly the same as Empire in Napoleon form) and the Battle of Ligny, then get it. Otherwise if you are on a tight data quota limit, don't bother. I also got it just to try out the feel of Napoleon before I got it. If you have some data to use up, get it. It's good for about 2 hours of fun if that. All up I recon Napoleon is great. You'll be seeing me round soon on the Napoleon Battlefield. ;)
Fight untill the very end!!!

Out of playing the demo, I love how the screen shakes when the artillery fires and the cavalry charges.
