Scourge Of War: Quatre Bras Crack And Patch

Napoleon, no less, has returned. It’s not exactly that there was a low point in the historiography of war gaming as there was in 1794, the year Francois Fosset published his Chouans in the Passage du Roi et de la Reine. Right up to the Battle of Waterloo, wargaming wasn’t really on any body’s radar. Up to a point, anyway. It was certainly on no one’s my radar, but it started to catch on for me in the last quarter of the 13th century. I’ve been playing wargames on a regular basis since then, partly because they’re fun, and partly because I want to. I’ve never thought much about the purpose of the games. I like them as a diversion just the same as I like playing billiards or poker. It makes no more sense, and no more point, to play pool or poker for the ultimate victory than it does to game FIFA 12 for the ultimate victory.

Then Scourge of War: Gettysburg came along. It wasn’t quite like a moment of revelation. It was more like a moment’s pause when I realised that the gameplay at my disposal was more complicated than I’d realised and that I’d been through many of the tropes of the wargame in the past. The passage of years hasn’t cleared the air. But while I did enjoy it, I didn’t really think, “Now, that’s what I was looking for” or anything like that. For the record, I loved it. It appealed to me on a basic level, and the sheer volume of detail was impressive. I appreciated the thought that drove it, its history, its campaign, its politics and most of all, its absolutely incredible units. But I suppose I’d rather nostalgia wasn’t a prerequisite for a commercial wargame as engaging as this to make a first impression. It doesn’t have the immediate appeal or rollicking post-game crunch of an event pack. It’s a wargame in which you play as a campaign, a replay that offers a considerable dose of replayability.

Too many of the special effects are done with needless wizardry, the AI and battle mechanics are unbalanced, and many of the special features would have been better served in a stand-alone expansion rather than in a sequel. There’s no more benchmarking: this is purely a reaction game.
