I was pretty impressed... but I tried the naval battle and control of the units was very difficult. I wanted them to sail in line and turn one after another and I could not make it happen. I did group them, then selected line astern... any ideas? The infantry battle was fun too... it looks like a winner.

Seems to me like the naval battles are still a bit buggy.

IMO, it needs work. I like the hand to hand battles in the other editions. This whole "stand off and shoot" mentality with this game is....well...boring.

I wish I had time to get the demo, but my whole life is in boxes waiting to be moved from one house to another. Ill pick up the retail version when I get settled.

I finally downloaded it and just messed around a little in the tutorials. I will spend some more time on it tonight and see how the campaign is. I think I am turning into an RTS nut, lol. Definitely a good year to become one; DOW2, ETW, SC2, RA3 Uprising... yummy RTS fun. I just wish they didn't take so long, there are some other games I need to play! ;)

After a bit of modding I was wondering what 2000 grenadiers would look like throwing grenades. Well too bad they all didn't throw. Well I tried once but I got to go to bed. Work tomorrow.

How did you get 2000 grenadiers? Is that even possible in the demo?
