I recently bought Cossacks 2, but it's so buggy and is graphically terrible, it almost makes me want to play IG.

There is a free Napoleonic total conversion mod for Medieval:Total War which looks really good. It's also had excellent reviews, everything I've read about it has been positive. I've not seen one bad review.

Also Medieval:Total War can be purchased quite cheaply these days.

War and Peace. Real-time global strategy. Quite entertaining for a while.

I tried Matrix's 'Crown of Glory' but it was not a game I'd recommend.
At all.
Ever.

Maybe I didn't play it enough to understand it's hidden charms, but it's face value was unattractive to say the least.

It plays like a vamped up version of "Imperiallism", which was a great game and which CoG is not.

Waterloo: Napoleons last battle and Austerlitz: Napoleon’s Greatest Victory are both very good.

Not yet, but I am following that one closely, it's looking better and better. They released a new AVI on their forums recently and the animations are looking nice.

The animation of the horses look, how shall I put it, not good. Also there are some clipping problems. It still looks nice though.

Sure the graphics might not be as good as IG, although considering the amount of troops on the field on LG it's really quite good. Gameplay looks to be much better than IG. Guess it depends on the age old question gameplay vs graphics and what's more important.

EDIT: Also to consider, the makers of LG are probably trying to make it so that people won't need insane upgrades for their pc's to play the game.

EDIT2: LG will have Borodino! Now IG might have eyecandy graphics , but again in IG the number of troops would be more like a skirmish than a huge battle. There will be other historic battles as well in LG. Summed up I think LG will balance graphics and large amounts of troops on the field. Besides the fact that the game is being made by "grogs" for "grogs" much like Bull Run which I think is a great game.
