Napoleon’s Last Battles June 1815
Napoleon’s Last Battles finds a triumphant but beleaguered Napoleon again on the throne. He’s outnumbered and strategically surrounded; his only chance to maintain the throne and the preeminence of France is to gain a decisive military victory. To succeed against those overwhelming odds, Napoleon boldly decides on an offensive intended to destroy two of his opponents and drive the English from the continent. This package includes games on the Battles of Ligny, Quatre Bras, Wavre and La Belle Alliance (Waterloo) along with the campaign game. The system uses leaders and brigades of cavalry, infantry, and artillery. There is no AI.

Few thoughts. February 14, 2017
Reviewer: alejandro anzuinelli from olivos, bs as Argentina  
Pros:
Faithful recreation of the boardgame, which means you can now play even when you do not have plenty of time!
Lots of historical value (hover the mouse on every unit and a label will pop up stating its details). This is better if you are reading a book of the era (like Osprey Series or fiction as "Sharpe in Waterloo").
Immersion! lots of it!
No calculations as the software makes that for you.

Cons:
Hexes and counters are too small, even having a big screen. No zoom?! Well, at least I cannot find it yet!
Graphic quality of the counters shoud be better. As it is right now I´d say is below average (for the price tag, IMHO it should be higher). I love to see a battle and how it develops while I enjoy the view of the counters and terrain, of course it could just be me...

Conclusion: Good pc boardgame. I would give it a 5 stars were the hexes bigger and counters more appealing to the eyes.

Napoleon's Last Battles December 7, 2011
Reviewer: Eric Larsen from Salinas, CA United States  
An excellent computer rendition of the old classic SPI board game.  I didn't find the three new scenarios listed in the game's  selling page, I wonder if these only show up for PBEM play.  It would be great to have scenarios with the campaign rules of command control and optional rules plus fog of war for hot seat mode.

I found a few bugs like not being able to get the cavalry retreat feature working in hot seat mode in the campaign game.  It would not seem to recognize my clicking on the 2-1 odds to replace the question mark.  There's an LOS problem when firing artillery from Maransart north two hexes to the woods hex across the stream.  Other than that it's remarkably clean for a computer wargame.
Despite the rules saying that the optional victory rules aren't in the computer version they indeed are there for the campaign game, an added bonus.

I would also like to see an easy way to delete old games from the menu.
