Well I played a smaller scenario "Blackburn's Ford" with each game as the USA... a major victory with HPS and a draw with BaB.
HPS is fine, imho, dated but ok... I have several of their games, a tried and true system where you direct each units fire and direct melees....I like how you can move whole columns plus Antietam has a HUGE number of scenarios.
However where there are 'matching' scenarios I prefer BaB (you don't pick targets the unit's themselves pick their own, units can have a 'charge' setting of never, may or must. That said, I enjoy the fire resolution when after movement 'all hell breaks' loose.)
There are 'Various' brigade stances that effect all type of things such as how fast a unit can move, how close a unit can move to the enemy (ugly red x's) ect. This can lead to both joy and frustration as much is decided by percentage chance based upon leader ratings. There are urge unit and hex focus commands also.
I like the game and find it detailed and innovative but I will add that BaB isn't for everyone, I suggest watching some you-tube videos before purchasing.
