Still waiting for a decent tactical turned game for my preferite "era" (no, I'm done with Tiller/Hps games...) a game with the scope and semplicity of Victory and Glory was not particulary needed imho. Just look at some screenshot and you can realize V&G can't compete or be compared to WoN ;)

I would strongly recommend Crown of Glory: Emperor's Edition from Matrix, for this. It is a true grand strategy game, but it incorporates really challenging tactical play at the divisional, or even brigade, level. The AI is much harder at the tactical level than at the strategic level and you can play as one of several major nations from the period, with start dates at 1792, 1796, 1803, 1805, 1812, and 1815. It also incorporates a strong tactical naval game, complete with boarding, different canon shot types, wind gauge, and more. You can also write your own detailed treaties to end a conflict with another major power. It's still one of my favorite (maybe THE favorite Napoleonic game) I have. The only downside is the outdated graphics. But if you're used to John Tiller, then CoGEE won't bother you much. :)
