Battle of Austerlitz, The box cover

Battle of Austerlitz, The screenshot
An early computer wargame that depicts one of Napoleon's most famous battles, The Battle of Austerlitz is an innovative game that boasts real-time play and an easy-to-use interface. But like the authors' previous game Borodino: 1812, it is marred by superficial gameplay: ahistorical, arcade-style "tank rush" tactic is required to win, rather than any real military acumen. Fun for a while, but has very little replay or long-term play value. Worth a look if you are interested in the era, or collect wargames in general. For a much better treatment of the war, though, try other wargames such as Talonsoft's 1996 classic Waterloo instead.
