Scourge of War: Waterloo takes the action to one of the most famous battles in history. Following and expanding on the scope of the base game, Scourge of War: Wavre focuses heavily on realistic units, formations, tactics, weapon ranges, and more.


 
In an extremely accurate order of battle, you will find all of the historical units that originally fought. Each unit has its own commander and objectives: whether you choose to give orders as the Maréchal Grouchy or as Generalleutnant von Thielemann, you can lead your army to victory in five new scenarios covering all the critical phases of the battle of Wavre!
 
The battlefield is meticulously represented in an extensively researched, historically correct 5-mile x 5-mile map. You will be pleased to find all of the features (and more!) that have made Scourge of War: Waterloo the best simulation of Napoleonic warfare ever created.
 
GAMEPLAY

At first glance, the player is tasked with moving huge bodies of troops into position to crush the enemy, be it with sheer numbers or superior tactics. In reality though, there is a whole lot more going on. First of all Scourge of War: Waterloo offers a lot more realism than any similar title on the market, having historical unit names, weapons, formations etc. More importantly, however, is the fact that the game simulates the complete chain of command. Players are not by definition placed on top of this chain (though it is possible) but are often placed somewhere in between. Meaning that during the battle, they get orders from above, interpret them and form a strategy with them, then, they will send out their couriers to deliver their own orders to the units directly under their control.

STYLE

Scourge of War: Waterloo has 2D sprites drawn on a 3D terrain and in doing so, is capable of showing far larger armies than most games out there. Players can zoom out to great heights to get the best overview of the battle, or zoom in and get right into the action. All units have historical uniforms and carry historical flags. Leaders stand out well enough to easily find them.

INTERFACE

The user interface had a major overhaul compared to previous SoW titles. The number of buttons on the screen has been reduced and replaced by a context-sensitive popup menu (optional) and it is now easier than ever to set formations in the desired position and with the preferred facing. Additionally, the new order of battle browser and a host of other new screens make it so that players will only have their own strategies to blame for failure.
