I wouldn't say really bad, but it is mediocre. In another version you do get the Highlanders to play bagpipes. I like the RTS mode because I can use these elite Egyptian groups like partisans.

Well, it seems they cared whom Napoleon fought against. This choice is very wise for me it seems so atleast.

I agree with that though, that was something stupid.

Come on, I don't care who Napolean fought against. They added Egypt with the Turkish flag. That's ridiculous!

I didn't hear about unmounting dragoons, but I think you can. I also heard that the Brits get bagpipes for the Highlanders. I do agree with what you are saying about Egypt-Ottoman Empire, but couldn't they add the Ottomans as a neutral faction?

Well. Cossacks series has always published history better than others (atleast better than any AOE). It's graphics are quite same with AOE III except with that shading but it can be compared to Imperial Glory easily. I would say that this game is quite fond of history as the Egypt was chosen because Egypt was more or less an autonomous territory and Napoleon's forces had much more conflicts with 'Egypt' than with 'Ottoman Empire'...

And I bleieve you could mount dragoons and unmount them here?

I played the demo version of it few months ago.

The graphics are not that good, especially when compared with AOE.

Some historical elements are inaccurate. Ottoman Empire which was based on Istanbul (Turkey), is shown as Egypt.

Has anybody ever played this game before? It is an RTS that has very good graphics and requires at least 512MB RAM(768MB RAM recommended). You can fight as Britain, France, Russia, Austria, Egypt(Ottoman Empire, but when did anybody care about history?), and Prussia. Here are a few screens.
French National Guard

Cavalry Charge!

Skirmish on a bridge.
