MY FAVOURITE NAPOLEONIC GAME BEFORE NAPOLEON: TOTAL WAR!
6 July 2013
Summary: Before NAPOLEON TOTAL WAR was released in March 2010, without a doubt IMPERIAL GLORY was the best looking Napoleonic wargame on the market. A total of 5 nations can be played - Great Britain, France, Russia, Austria and Prussia - and each has certain advantages.
Summary: Easily the best Napoleonic game i've played.(note: i haven't been lucky enough to play Napoleon: Total War,yet!)

Summary: Admittedly, there are some little niggles that drag this game down sightly (for example, the fact that normal shot does not kill crew members in naval encounters) and the fact that morale has hardly been represented is altogether questionable.
Summary: I first thought it would be bad with the reviews but it isn't at all that bad.

Summary: This is a brilliant game. I've checked the units and weaponry of this era on the Net and in books and it's extremely similar. The land battles are amazing, the game is a bit complicated, I admit but the diplomacy, the trade, the battles and everything else is great.
