Yep, I have Age of Sail and Wooden Ships, Iron Men and this looks like I might have to get this title as well. I like Ultimate General Civil War and UG CW-Gettysburg, so I will be tracking this one for sure. Plus I think there might be a land component as well...

Looks interesting.

Hopefully it will also feature the Danes, which in this era were "not to bite spoons with", as we say :)

I think they are starting with a limited number of nations, but do not remember which ones.

Yep, as I recall both Danes and Dutch fielded formidable navies at this time. Both had their spoons bitten by the British Royal Navy as well.

Yes, and biting that spoon lost them quite a few teeth. But they still left grinning.

Now where did I leave my cut of Total War Empires again?

Seems to me like the Total War naval game looks more realistic than the Ultimate Admiral. The UA series appears to push the edge of being slightly cartoonish. Not saying I don't like the style because I do. Graphics are always nice and bright and have a smooth flow to them. I am pretty pumped about the UA release.

Yep, I am a big Wooden Ships, Iron Men and Age of Sail fan. I am also looking forward to that Dreadnought title as well...

Im not a fan of the infantry storm the beaches type of battles we are going to see here either. I know its going to be all about nudging infantry units on some narrow ledge to capture a hill.
