I never understood EU3's combat system. I guess back then wars were won by huge armies chasing each other back and forth between provinces until one of them suffered too much attrition? Either that or you have to have even bigger armies sitting in every one of the bordering provinces to prevent the enemy from magically slipping through your grasp and rampaging through your territory.

And some reviews:

EU3 Complete includes...
EU3 Original: http://jaguarusf.blogspot.com/2007/01/europa-universalis-iii-review.html
EU3 Napoleon: http://jaguarusf.blogspot.com/2007/09/europa-universalis-iii-napoleons.html
EU3 In Nomine: http://jaguarusf.blogspot.com/2008/06/europa-universalis-iii-in-nomine-review.html

2nd Manassas: http://jaguarusf.blogspot.com/2006/04/take-command-2nd-manassas-review.html

I did not like the shorter title of the Take Command sequel, since the original game was officially called The History Channel: Civil War: The Battle of Bull Run: Take Command: 1861. Nice.

Yeah, it's a very good mix of grand strategy and RTS. I recently reinstalled it and it's still fun to play, although the UI feels clunky compared to modern UIs. Also, be aware that its highest possible resolution is 1024x768.

Also, if Steam's version uses the latest patch, there should be no more copy protection or other DRM on it.

Think I might pull the trigger on 2nd Manassas. I haven't played a good civil war strategy game since Sid Meier's Gettysburg.
