Summary: While the strategic aspect is superior to the Total War series in almost every detail (diplomacy, CIV-like research tree & 'wonders', peaceful routes to victory) the tactical battles are worse in every aspect.
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.
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,
Summary: Imperial Glory is an obvious copy of Total War but is now available at a bargain price, and I even got it to run quite easily on my laptop. The graphics are very impressive and easily as good as you can find in Total War, however it does have a few faults.
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.

Summary: Well, firstly it has to be said, not as good as rome total war! This is a time period I am really interested in and this game has a lot of potential, however its biggest flaw makes the campaign side almost unplayable; PEACEFUL ASSIMILATION, I am a history and politics student at warwick uni, when...
