I tried the rules a year ago or so, did not play very much, however they were fun, especially the command system...
However, the rules cover a wide range, from the War of the Spanish Succession to the Crimean War, that is why the rules are not very "depth".
So if you want a fast playing fun game, I recommend the rules!
Besides, the layout of the rulebook ist just awesome!
