      It’s interesting to play a game like Austerlitz around the same time as the latest Age of Empires and compare the both, as each of the games are said to contain historical truths and that both of them partly focuses on the same war. While Age of Empires contains a lot more than the battle of Austerlitz, this game is merely focused on that battle.

      The game structure is very similar to the Age of Empires, though perhaps not as technically advanced or imaginative in the


      details.

      The controlling is nice and clear, all possible confusion has been taken care of.

      While the Age of Empires spanned over a much longer time period in history, which I guess this game also could’ve been doing, Austerlitz choses a more detailed way of recreating one single great battle.

      The battle of Austerlitz was, as any of you historians know, probably Napoleon Bonaparte’s greatest and most superior victory, even though he was believed by he enemies to be outnumbered.

      You get to choose either Napoleon’s ...


      • side, that is the french, or the Allies - which is Russia and Austria in this battle.

        The Austerlitz game is not brilliant in its visual details, far from the same genius as in the Age of Empires, but the creators have put such effort into making it as realistic to the actual battle on a structural level.

        The soldiers move, act, fight just as they would have done in reality.

        The pace feels very real, as it in the Age of Empires if a lot

        more hasted through at times.

        In Austerlitz you get to experience the true nature of a 19th century european war.

        This is just a game that was all intended to recreate a battle that took place in history as authentic as humanly possible.

        Of course, as with any game, you are also supposed to have a good fun while playing it.

        But I can tell you, Austerlitz: Napoleon’s Greatest Victory is just as good as a learning experience as it is a fun game to pass your time.
