I mean for 2.99 Imperial Glory is a great little game. I don't know what people want for the money but in my opinion, it's just as good as a lot of strategy games that are waaaay more expensive !!!

The reviews "poo-pooing" Imperial Glory are deceptive and unhelpful, particularly considering the low price of the game. Having only owned the game briefly, I can say I enjoy the game, thoroughly. The game is simple in design. Too, as the game is older, the graphics are expectedly simpler (though still fun, i.e. blood splatters on the battlefield).

My greatest delight comes from the designer's choice to keep each country's - or, territory's - battlefield consistent. When invading Norway (e.g.), the attacker can always expect the same battlefield layout. Again, simple layout and terrain; however, if an attack is a failure, the attacker can better prepare his or her army for subsequent attempts to take the region. [Note: I attempted an attack four (4) times. On the fourth time, I included artillery in an attempt to destroy defensive buildings. The true fun is the simplicity that allows for simple and strategic planning. Too, no battle is gruelingly long).

Also, your army's qualities changes according to the advantages or disadvantages as a result of the terrain.

A simple, easy to learn game. Probably not for the serious PC gamer; but, for someone looking to have simple fun, a good, re-playable game.

First of all, the download has been faulty (battles played in campaign usually crash the game), so on that count I have been denied the agency of victory in the full by relying on autoresolve. I played battles on quick-battle without the problem, but its a fairly limited experience. So there's my biggest problem (one I see others have had too).

Imperial Glory is a great snapshot of where contemporary gaming could see itself going: fully 3d real time battles with the complexities of Napoleonic warfare on a grand scale. Sadly, it did not have the processing or the design power to realize this (nor did anyone till Empire and Napoleon: Total War). In fact, this game is pretty much what we could expect from Napoleon if the developers had a budget of $12.50. The soldiers (which are lifelike and even have varying faces, which was a novelty at the time) look only slightly better than Age of the Empires and the campaign map is a counter-based affair. It doesn't do to compare apples to oranges, but the experience of playing this, even at the highest settings, is a real blast from the past.

Quick Pros and Cons

Pro:
Interesting campaign game involving a race to use diplomatic influence to win over minor nations to federate with you while maintaining a balance of power with the big 5 (Britain, France, Austria, Prussia, and Russia) which is historically unfair to Spain and the Ottoman Empire (though not a deal-breaker). There is a definite semi-grand strategic element of choosing to dedicate your resources to influence building, commerce, or military development, which can make the game fun and challenging.

Reviewed by my son:

Very nice game play. It has some historical aspects to the combat, which is pretty cool. Like the firing line/square that they formed, you can do that in the game. Acceptable diplomacy system for the game. Graphics are good for their time but a little but antiquated for now a days. A solid turn base system. For most of the game you are taking turns and a fair amount of it takes place in battle as well. For the naval combat, it was a cool idea, but after you get over 2 ships to command, it gets very difficult to control. That parts not fun. Cool idea but not the greatest. A wide variety of units. Just overall love it.
