I picked it up today, haven't spent any time with it yet.  I read that it's more manageable than your usual HPS/JTS affair, since the units are brigade-level and the terrain is split into zones instead of hexes.  It seems like there's emphasis on Napoleonic "combined arms" (i.e. properly utilizing your artillery and cavalry along with your infantry).  I don't have much more to say except that it looks very promising.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

If yer lookin' for the general, I know where he is...

My impression is just based on the discussion on the Matrix forum and my own poking around in the UI for a few minutes:
