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 ...

A GOOD GAME OVERSHADOWED BY THE CLASSIC NAPOLEON TOTAL WAR!
3 February 2006
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.
Conclusion: this game has a campaign map like the old medieval total war the graphics of rtw and you can fight with see battles, be warned though that if you buy this set the difficulty too max as the ai isnt the smartest
Conclusion: I bought this game a while back, hoping it would be like the Rome Total war series only in a Napoleonic era. Sadly I was disappointed. While it does have entertainment value, it has no where near the level of strategy and detail that the Rome total war games supply.
Conclusion: I bought this game last summer and have only really been able to play on it properly. This proved to be one of the most satisfying RTS games I have ever played. (Yet to buy Medieval Total war 2) Having read all of the Sharpe books set on the Nepolionic wars, I found this to greatly enjoyable, however, the battles are on a very small scale, only ranging up to 1000 men per side if your lucky.
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!
