  • Summary: Highly enjoyable game set in a period never really get full attention. The turn based part of the game lacks for features but the game really thrives when you get to the battlefield and control your army.

Imperial Glory from then and Beyond

  • Excerpt: "From my childhood, to this moment. This game has provided me with many hours of pleasure. You play through 1798 and beyond as either, England, France, Prussia, Russia, or Austria for domination of Europe and North Africa. The game is turn based, so you can delay your turn for as long as you wish before you make the right move. The campaign music is soothing and sets you in the right mood of becoming a strong political figure. The way to victory ...
  • Pros: great historical context, great music, great mechanical system, great naval battles
  • Cons: poor recruitment policies, inflexibility as regards what you can do with government,

  • Excerpt: In Imperial glory you once again set out to conquer europe and parts of northern africa, having the option of 5 empires to rule who change little exept for the option of millitia whit clubs for some and geographical location, like how england benefits greatly from a major sea power. The Sea battles can be controlled however the controlls are clumsy, in field battles it is not so much tactics as it is who has the most men on the field or who has the best cavalry, exept of...

  • Excerpt: I love this game. You really can build your Empire up. I think that the main weakness of the game is that it is too easy. I love to play it like an total war (war with almost everybody) and if I already have some 5-6 countries then its almost impossible to beat me. And i don't like that only 4 empires can attack other countries capitals, but still it's the best game ever.

  • Excerpt: Over the past few days, I have been playing Imperial glory the game, after bying it a few years ago. I picked itup cheap (dont really know why) and just never ended up playing it...but now i have :o. The game is based in Europe during the napoleonic period, wit the map spanning down to the north reaches of Africa. However the game holds no accurate historical detail, apart from the quests (see below) are named for example...'Industrial revolution'.

  • Excerpt: This game to say the most is mildly interesting. This is an Napoleonic era turn based RTS which will provide very interesting features in some parts but will also lack badly in others. The game play is quite simple and easy to learn but is no comparison to the total war series. The music and in game environment is quite satisfying so no problem there. The actual campaign even on hard seemed to easy and managed to get boring after a while.

A GOOD GAME OVERSHADOWED BY THE CLASSIC NAPOLEON TOTAL WAR!

  • Conclusion: Before the fantastic NAPOLEON TOTAL WAR was released in early 2010, the best looking Napoleonic wargame crown was owned by IMPERIAL GLORY. Both are very similar in terms of gameplay and graphical representation but the later SEGA classic is obviously the more polished product.

NAPOLEONIC SPLENDOUR!

Quiggan, Play.com
19 November 2005
  • Conclusion: Imperial Glory is certainly one of the best-looking Napoleonic war games available. The level of detail from the uniforms and faces of the soldiers (complete with moustaches!) to the guns and rigging of the naval vessels is simply outstanding!
