A very basic, yet fun RTS game. If you are seriously struggling with the Hardcore RTS games like Total War for example. And want an easier and less frustrating experience. This game is for you.

In Imperial Glory you control the major superpowers of that era. And basically it boils down to two options. a Score victory or Total Victory. If you know what these two options are then this game should be a piece of cake. Plus the tutorial mode really helps out fresh RTS players to understand the basic controls of how to manage your empire. The User Interface once the game starts is simple to understand, plus all of the options tells you which key on your keyboard to press for a quick look around.

The battles in this game are once again, easy to understand. I guess you can say if you want a less more frustrating experience with an RTS game i recommend this game first and foremost before trying out the big boys.

I recommend this game.

Ok let´s make a proper review of this game. This title has about 10 years old and for a game made that long ago, is one of the best strategic games i ever played ! So, i got this game for free in some giveway from a retailer website. Got it cuz i already played alot of Total War series and i´m really into this historic and strategic games.

At the beginning it didn´t suprise me and was kind of boring actually, cuz i was used to other kind of game rules and gameplay (from Rome Total War mainly). After a couple hours playing i really got into the athmosfear of the game and i started to enjoy it.

If you compare this game with Total War series, you rly can even do more things in this game than in the Rome Total War ( I compare it with RTW cuz both were made/launched around the same year ).

Here you can have ships/nautic battles, while in RTW Battles like that are just automatic, while here, in the battle contact, soldiers mix themselves and you dont even know who´s dying if you don´t look at the number of troops, RTW has move battle consistency, better options and gameplay and a bigger map.

The graphics are pretty good for a game that was made 10 years ago, with nice details, what deffenitely provides you a good gameplay.
If you are thinking about playing this game online with other people forget it, you won´t find anyone to play with (i speak for myself cuz i live in a small country and in a +or- remote location but maybe you have lucky).

Once again, you can totally compare this game to Empire Total War due the historic timeline. If you ever played a Total War title and enjoyed it i totally recomend this game to you, its a rly good option to TW series, you should give it a try !

It is a really nice game and for 5eur it´s completelly worth, even tought you can it cheaper in promotions...

7.7/10

PS: Sorry about some english mistakes, i think everyone gets it
