How does the game deal with boarding ships ?  Is it aninmated marines and sailors fighting on the decks or is it abstracted like naval action ?

Yes. Animated. When conditions of range, speed and angle are met, ropes and hooks are thrown between ships and the crews and marines have at it. Very cool.

Just not feeling in an age of sale mood right now. 
Pretty much all of my buying occurs during an "age of sale".  Well except for FOG:E and I've yet to put more than a couple hours into it so far.

I loved the battles in the Ultimate General series and actually did well in fighting them, so...GIGGITY

Anyone have any updated thoughts on this one?  Hankering for some Age of Sail but the reviews, particularly on enemy scaling, aren't the best.
