Probably the most successful ship-to-ship simulation of Napoleonic warfare, it has vast entertainment value. While some maneuvers are over-simplified (e.g. tacking), it remains the standard.

The player's manual is a mine of information and is produced with the usual classy style we have all grown to expect from the master of strategy games on the Atari micros. Overall Broadsides is one of the best simulations from SSI and is a pleasure to play.

Broadsides is an excellent depiction of ship-to-ship combat in the famous age of "Wooden Ships and Iron Men." The graphics are very pleasing, and the historical statistics presented allow you to create a virtually unending array of different battle situations. The arcade game allows you to continue to fight battle after battle with the same ship (so long as you keep winning), while the tactical game makes for a good tournament situation, say best three out of five battles, or most victory points scored during a specified number of engagements.
