Scourge Of War: Chancellorsville on Sale this week.

While it doesn't have the eye candy of the Total War series' tactical battles, SOW's game mechanics are far more historically realistic. Including the command & control side.

I'd call it a Civil War Command Simulator. Excellent f'ing game. I played the shit out of SOW Gettysburg and have done some Co-Op multiplayer with Chancellorsville. If you want to be in the shoes of a Brigade, Division, or Corps' commanding general then this is the one. IIRC, some US officer training/command school has used it before in their curriculum.

Even the Tutorials are fun. I don't recommend starting off with the 'Courier Orders Only' setting, but the command delays and other such things are still taken into account even if you're click-ordering stuff directly so you don't really need that or 'Headquarters In The Saddle' unless you wanna go all out ultra-realism crazy.

Really looking forward to the upcoming Napoleonic series they're doing too. Hopefully it captures the same immersive command experience.

Good spot! Been waiting for a sale on these games! Also interested in playing Order of War Pacific, so hopefully that will go on sale this year at some point.
