Just got this game from hearing others talking about it on forums. Excellent game, I am enjoying it very much so far. A good example of how morale and fatigue, and rallying generals should be implemented. Outstanding job for a couple of guys making a game on their own time in their basement. I was surprised, because I always hate sp games, but this is an exception.

Yes! I couldn't agree more! This game shows how focusing on playability rather than graphics produces a quality game. The graphics are about two years old but the AI is decent and there is a lot strategy involved. If memory serves the designers had links with Talonsoft years ago, so these guys are more like "independents" than amatuers.
How fun is it? Well, if I have to choose between Bull Run and IG, I pick Bull Run. :p
