Imperial Glory

Auracore MediaWorks
20 August 2005
  • Summary: The road to glory falls a little bit short.
  • Pros: The campaign is has near endless replay value; beautiful 3D environments for real-time battles; the real-time battles in a turn-based game are a novel idea.
  • Cons: Long load times between game modes; a lack of variety in the basic soundtrack becomes repetitive and the voice acting is simply ridiculous; multiplayer supports too few players per game to be enjoyable.

  • Excerpt: Pyro Studios is no stranger to strategy titles having done tactical level games like Commandos and various real-time strategy titles like Praetorians. Admittedly, it was hard to write this review without being influenced by Creative Assembly’s Total War series, especially the latest Rome: Total War title, which Imperial Glory models itself upon. Like Rome, Imperial Glory is split between a turn-based nation level strategy piece and a real-time battle portion.

2 June 2005
  • Summary: Imperial Glory is a game that wants to be the next Total War. Not that there's anything wrong with that. After all, Creative Assembly's popular strategy franchise has gotten bigger and better with every release. However, in copying the formula of Total War, Pyro Studios, the designers of Imperial Glory, have missed the small nuances and details that made the Total War games, in particular Medieval and Rome, something special.
  • Pros: Picturesque 3D land and naval battles, Rich diplomacy system, Enjoyable, if slow, turn-based strategy
  • Cons: Land battles lack epic feel, Lack of morale system creates unrealistic results, Naval battles tough to coordinate, Only five historical battles

Test : Imperial Glory

GameHope
12 October 2014
  • Summary: Après des références comme Warcraft , Rome Total War ou encore Cossacks , le monde du jeu de stratégie était complètement dominé. Heureusement se profile déjà un messie, venu sur terre pour foutre une bonne claque aux joueurs et révolutionner le monde du RTS. Imperial Glory , dernier titre d’ Eidos et de Pyro Studios , est cet enfant prodige qui vous scotchera pendant de longues nuits d’affilée devant vos écrans.
  • Pros: Les batailles terrestres, La diplomatie, Une bande-son rythmée
  • Cons: Les batailles navales, Pas de véritable multijoueurs

  • Excerpt: A miało być tak pięknie, wywiady miały być, wizyty w zakładach pracy. Niestety, nie wyszło zbytnio. Imperial Glory , dzieło hiszpańskiego studia Pyro , znanego najbardziej ze swojej serii Commandos , stanęło dzielnie w szranki z Rome TW i poległo, po krótkiej, ale intensywnej walce. Szkoda, bo zapowiadało się, że będzie całkiem odwrotnie.

  • Excerpt: Med Imperial Glory forsøker Pyro Studios, utviklerne bak den velkjente Commandos-serien, å blande sjangrene sanntidsstrategi og turbasert strategi. Denne blandingen har tidligere vist seg å være svært suksessfull, og da spesielt gjennom den kritikerroste Total War-serien. Imperial Glory fokuserer på mange av de samme suksesselementene som Total War-serien inneholder, men utviklerne har også prøvd å implementere andre spennende elementer for å kapre spilleren.

  • Excerpt: Napoleonskrigene er åbenbart ikke spændende at lave spil om. Vi skulle vente meget længe på det første rigtige strategispil om Napoleonskrigene – nemlig Cossacks 2: Napoleonic Wars, Men det var helt ærligt ikke ventetiden værd. Nu kommer Imperial Glory så og til trods for at det bygger på stort set samme koncept, så fungerer det heldigvis meget bedre.

  • Excerpt: Après un excellent Rome Total War, que diriez-vous de vous replonger dans un jeu mêlant wargame au tour par tour et stratégie temps réel ? Vous êtes partant ? Ca tombe bien puisque c'est ce que propose Imperial Glory. Petite différence tout de même avec son illustre aîné au niveau du contexte : il ne s'agit pas ici de Rome antique mais bien de conquêtes napoléoniennes.

  • Summary: „Imperial Glory“ kann sich ansatzweise mit Ruhm bekleckern. Auf der Strategiekarte spielt es sich flott und motivierend, die Echtzeitschlachten bieten anfangs willkommene Abwechslung. Im Laufe der Zeit fehlt es aber besonders hier an Tiefgang – immer öfter lässt man den Rechner die Feldherrenrolle übernehmen, auch, weil das Geschehen auf der Hauptkarte wirklich spannend ist: Kann ich noch einen Friedensvertrag durchsetzen, bevor die Konkurrenz einmarschiert?
  • Pros: Kurzweilige Rundenstrategie, Entscheidungen haben tief greifende Konsequenzen, Schicke Echtzeitgefechte
  • Cons: Auf Dauer eintönige Echtzeitgefechte, Öde Seegefechte, Unrealistische Diplomatie

  • Conclusion: Nazwa gry : Imperial Glory Gatunek : Strategiczne Oficjalna strona : http://www.imperialglory.com/ Skrócony opis gry : Gra twórców „Preatorians”, osadzona w realiach historycznych, pozwalająca graczom stanąć na czele jednego z wielkich imperiów: Wielkiej Brytanii, Francji, Rosji, Prusów lub Austrowęgier. Program nawiązuje rozmachem i techniką wykonania do znanej serii Total War. Jestem kapral John Stark.
