Disclaimer: I write for Choice of Games and received this copy for free.
This game is set in an alternate reality where Robert Fulton had more freedom to work with steam and Napoleon survived long enough for succession to be a question. The game is meticulously researched to be as close to baseline reality as possible.
You play the personal bodyguard and childhood friend of Alexandre Walewski, the illegitimate but favored heir of Napoleon. You deal with court intrigue and assassination attempts as you mold the future of France.
I didn't like the beginning of this game, so much that I set it aside for months. I just didn't find it compelling.
But one of the biggest strengths that Choice of Games has is the length of their games. Once I played a few more chapters, I had spent so much time with these characters that I became emotionally invested. I was very satisfied with my outcomes.
I also enjoyed the chance you had to make major changes in the outcomes of different chapters, and to take charge.
I don't give 5 stars to all choice of games games; this one was, in my mind, special.
