Bought this game and was extremely pleased for how little it costs, but there are definately a few bugs such as random crashes all the time that get very irritating when you do not save. Overall a good game with a few bugs.

Honestly I love this game, it is an amazing strategy and I have actually played this before other strategy games and I just got more attached to this game. So here are some pros and cons.

Pros:
1. Graphics(For its time)
2. Sound effects.
3. The battles are amazing, especially in the campaign. All units fire at the same time.
4. Physics on cannon balls(I always order my cannons to fire as far as they can)
5. Naval combat is just amazing!
Cons:
1. Sometimes after a battle the game crashes(Please fix it, Im currently doing the same battle over and over again till it finally stops)
2. Nothing else!

All in all I would recommend this game to anyone!

In today's grand strategy market, Imperial Glory is basically just a poor man's Empire/Napoleon Total War. However, when this game originally came out in 2005, those games didn't exist. At the time Imperial Glory was a pretty good grand strategy game set in Europe and northern Africa from the last 1700s to the early 1800s. Even today that is mostly true. Imperial Glory does suffer from some compatibility problems with newer operating systems, but for me those were all fixed by running the game in compatibility mode for Windows XP SP3.

Graphically the game does definitely look dated. That being said, that doesnt stop the real time battles from still being large impressive set pieces. The turn based campaign map lacks the realistic birds eye view from the newer Total War games but it still depicts the game world pretty well in my opinion. The player gets a "Risk" like map that looks like a real general's map in some army camp with little board game pieces to represent armies and navies (yes there is also naval warfare).

Gameplay should be very similar to those familiar with Total War games. It consists of playing as either Russia, Prussia, the UK, France, or Austria in a massive campaign to take over all of Europe. There are also smaller NPC empires such as Spain and the Ottoman Empire. The UI has aged well over the years. Though it might seem daunting, the game is actually quite simple and the tutorial teaches almost all that is required. This game is no Europa Universalis or Crusader Kings.

The real time battles are also basically what you would expect from a grand strategy game. It plays almost the same as a Total War game except for one huge missing factor which will turn off some players. For some reason Pyro Studios never thought that it was a good idea to include a unit morale system. Thus your units feel more like automatons than actual human beings. They will literally fight to the death when outnumbered 20 to 1.

There are also historical battles which follow the conquests and defeat of Napoleon and multiplayer/bot skirmishs.

So in conclusion, this is a game I recommend to anyone interested in a poor man's Total War game that has a somewhat humble presentation, yet does not have any game breaking bugs *cough* Rome 2 *cough*.

Lastly I love the soundtrack

It was cheaper than Total War. Not at all better. While it is like Total War it is very buggy. I can't ever play as England because most of the time armies can't get into boats. Armies sometimes don't combine with other armies. Just get a TW game.

This game combines country management with RTS gameplay! I bought this damn thing for .79 cents and I have 130 hours on it!

It requires careful strategies both in battle and out, and I think it is really cool how they have an AI controlling the independant countries other than the 5 empires.

In battle on easy mode, even if you are the attacker, the AI will ALWAYS attack you. It can glitch out sometimes and do dumb stuff within the battle. The lack of moral for units in battle is kinda cheap, as you can literally command units to death. But it is pretty smart when it comes to managing the other countires aganst you, and will not hesitate to attack your weaknesses.

Yeah its a bit dated (2005) but it is a lot of fun for a stategy junkie like me! Highly reccomend!

Basically this is an older early attempt at Napolean Total War. It's probably not as good I have never played Napolean Total war only empire and Mideval II Total War. I could never get into the Total war franchise or RTS in general however I enjoyed this. I once owned a retail copy but I sold it I remember getting it as a gift back in 07 and being so excited but I found it impossibly hard. I picked the steam edition up for 99 cents and I have been enjoying the heck out of it despite its flaws.

First of all im going to take this in review into account with Empire: Total war

I think Imperial Glory is a excellent game and definitely its money's worth 20 times over
The strategic play style is expected with pieces. However in contrast the way the AI reacts to all the events is so astounding it had me sweating and rethinking alot of strategies. It was fun to actually find a game where diplomacy and trading could play such a larger role in you wining battles in the future. For insance, i was playing as france, and england and austria where slowly overtaking my claim to batavia and hanover, 2 of the most strategic gateways into france. Having sighted a military option initially taking over spain and portugual, i realised by now my armies where exhausted and thus austria and england pounced, having my armies streched thin

This is where the game truely took form on the battlefield games, having set maps for each region, tatical plays and strategic desions intertwined perfectly. Battlefields where so much fun with better formationing than empire and better unit balancing rather than throw a massive jumble of pointless troops in the mix, the game never ended up as a giant cluster♥♥♥♥ battle like all my empire games do

Ship battles felt more like duels rather than big worm fights as most historical ship battles took place, having manoevering tatics more and more decisive overall

10/10 reconmend

sry for any spelling or grammar errors :)

Imperial Glory has been out for awhile. This was my first game I played, purchased the CD. Its pretty straight forward, no complications. When I saw this on Steam, snapped it for $4. and some cents, It has multi-player but I have not used that aspect? So can't comment! But the game is very addictive, with plenty of action. You are given several countries to lead. If you have never played game, don't choose, Austria. It is the most difficult country to defend because it is surrounded by enemies. Which love to gang up on the about the first 3-4 turns of the game. Once you have played the game and get the hang of it, try Austria. Each country or empire has a special strenght, the British, their Royal Navy and industry. France, professional armies and cannon. Prussia, military tactics. Russia, population and plenty of territory to retreat from their attackers! Plus u get to gobble up all of the secondary countries! But watch out, they may be allied with a more powerful empire or two. The key is to develop your country as quickly as possible and form alliances with others in order to survive! Plenty of action, naval battles, army battles, foreign policy action, trade, industrial growth and political structure. All must be monitored and nutured in order to afford those huge armies and navies. You can even foster political unrest in other countries, once you develop a huge budget! So, yes its an oldie but a goody! Recommend this action game!

Here's how it all went down:


I started off as Great Britan. The people needed a good, strong leader, and because of reasons, they thought that I would fit the bill.

I started doing what any person would do, spending all the money on a military, opening up trade routes, and scamming other countries into buying my "quality" materials that I was only to happy to get rid of. (we were a bit overstocked on them)

In attempts to increase government/military quality, I decided it might be best to forget about educations and hospitals to focus on more important things. Trading and Diplomacy.

As my diplomacy skills went up, I wanted to be better friends with the surrounding nations, so I gave France ten bucks to strengthen our relationship. They were not amused, and it backfired on me.

With that out of the way I decided that the best move from here was to wipe Denmark of the face of the map, for the sole reason being that it was there. I put my troops on a ship, and once I could convince them to swim to shore, I had to make a bunch of allies so I could march across other peoples land on my way to Denmark.

I attack. It was a hard fight in the mountains, and we sustained heavy casulties, but we drove them back. VICTORY......until they brought in a bigger, meaner army for reinforcments and then gave me a whoopin.

With my army crippled, and thus my country, I threw in the towl. Well played Denmark, well played.





In all seriousness, I bought the game on sale for 49 cents. I don't think it's quite as big, detailed or complex as some of the newer Total War games, but it seems easier, which is good for RTS newbs like me. With that in mind, and you don't mind outdated graphics, then you might consider giving this a try. You could go on adventures like the one above.... :)

Imperial Glory is not at all what i expected. A friend got this game for me, while it was on sale for 59p. For it's age, Imperial Glory can still compete with other, more modern games of its type. Though the graphics are not the best, the game mechanics are in many respects better than the likes of Empire and Napoleon Total War. If you have played either of these, you will be well aware than when two units clash in melee, it is not uncommon for several men from each unit to be doing nothing while a few others fight and the rest get in the way looking for an opponent. Well Imperial Glory, now 10 years old, actually doesn't do that. It was really good to watch the intense melee with everyone taking part. Though indeed the kill moves, and graphics cannot compete with the likes of Empire and Napoleon Total War, it was a nice part of the game that i really enjoyed.

The sound effects and general playstyle is very similar to that of Napoleon and Empire too, but from my short playtime, it is a lot faster and seems a lot less buggy. I like how the lines all fire pretty much at the same time, but the reloads are a bit too fast. I found the interface a bit tricky to work out, but i soon got the hang of that and everything was fine. Formations cannot be changed merely by right click and dragging the unit across the map, as you can in Empire and Napoleon, at least i couldn't get it to work like that.

Unit sizes are pretty small which realy is the bggest downside to the game, and it kinda kills the realism, but really its fast paced and relatively easy playstyle really does make it a game still worthy of some respect, in many ways better than most games from the Total War series.

the game is a real gem. In my humble opinion its one of the best strategy games ever made. just ignore the metascore. many german magazines rated it higher than rome 1.
and i dont understand why people here think this game is simple. it is actually pretty complex and provides loads of statistics and data to the player - some of it maybe a bit "hidden" for the superficial players. like already mentioned, the land battles can be very challenging, even for experienced armchair-generals -but i dont consider this to be a bad thing...at all. Also this game had sea battles long before the tw-series and they still look fantastic. but the best thing about this game is still the music. especially the tracks that play during the map-mode are incredibly beautiful. check this one out guys, you won't regret it. for 3 euros its a steal.

Definitely a classic stab at TBS and RTS by Eidos (those guys that did Praetorians). The gameplay is simpler than a total war game yet features an extensive research tree and exciting combat that, in my opinion, holds up even today. Austria is a total ♥♥♥♥ though. Always trying to defend Eastern Europe from my clutches... your time will come Austria! Your time will come O_O

this game is like a simpler version of total war. that being said, give this game credit. the graphics and battlefields are, in my opinion, better than empire, and the battles are much harder. cavalry is much more realistic and can tear your lines to shreads and wreak havoc, and the lines arent much easier. i think this game is definately at total wars level and can compete with the big dogs if it wants. well worth the money

If you are a fan of the total war series, this game is for you, keep in mind that Imperial Glory was made in 2005, it's in my opnion on the same level as Empire, just much more simplar.

In Empire total war, made in 2009, navel battles were a huge new feature, Imperial Glory made in 2005 had already made a simple yet easily handled navel battle system.

I prefer the navel battles in this game compared to Empire or Rome II total War myself.

The land battles are nice, but unlike then new games, they don;t use bump mapping.

There only problem I have with the game is there is no moral system, every battle is a fight to the death, troops can not feel the field and regroup.

Otherwise if you're a fan of Empire tottal war I'd say give this game a show, and at the current price of £3.50 it's worth it.

Not An Imperial RTS Title, But It Works!

Before I went to purchase Imperial Glory, I have got to say, I did my fair share of research on it, as I didn’t really know what type of a game I was throwing myself into. When I did look into it though, the information was already enough to sway me into buying, hearing that it was a similar to the likes of Empire Total War. This however being a budget title, very cheap, and well did not take too much of a computer to run. That’s the basis of what convinced me to buy it, currently having quite a weak laptop to run games on, so I gave it a try.

When you first get into this game, it does take a while to progress through the campaign, its often very confusing at the start as-well. You can start to see the elements in which are similar to Empire TW, but do notice that its clearly not as good, which brought this game down for me. As I said earlier, it takes a while to actually do anything in this game, and so need to be patient, keeping it calm in the early stages. Im going to be honest, you attack anyone early on, your going to get f***ed up pretty easily. Once you have an army etc, it gets interesting, you can trade, form alliances, but that’s pretty much it. While playing this game it always felt as if I was playing a decent title though, graphics are good for the age, but you do have to realise that this game really is just for those who cannot run Empire. I would not purchase this game if I had Empire Total War there in my library, I just wouldn’t! Its for people who like a good RTS Strategy game, but may not have the option of good gaming rig to play them games on. But at least there is an option for players, a decent strategy title like Imperial Glory, requiring little to run really. Its ok for that set of aspects.

It takes a while to experience any kind of glory really, but its a great option for those who like a good rts game, its a game that can run on just about anything.
Overall:

+ Decent Graphics
+ Professional Look
+ Easy To Run
+ Gameplay Is Pretty Smooth

- Feels Like Second Best
- Lacks In Storytelling
- Not Going To Win Any Awards

Good 7.5/10

That goes it for my short Imperial Glory Steam Review

Thanks,

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.

I must also freeze the map rotation issue, while in Total War series you get a different battle map every time you move, in this game, the map is only 1 per partition (region) what, in my opinion is not a big of a problem, just a small detail.

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...

7/10

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

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.

As a lover of Total War series and other strategy games I can confirm I love this game!
It's cheap, it has great strategy RTS battles, it's quick, it can be very easy if you know how to handle it.
If you are a newbie, or if you want to discover the great world of strategic games, I recommend that you start with this game. It's easier than the others, it's fast, like, if you are in college or something and you don't really have time, a battle would take like 10-15 minutes, and it's very cheap. However it is old and some mecghanics are outdated but it's a really nice experience. So, let me finish, if you are a newbie and want to try Total War Napoleon, Empire, Rome, Shogun, or Men of War and Company of Heroes series, I'd suggest that you should try this game first. It's easy to understand, not very complicated. I rate this game 8/10 because it's old and because of the well known issues (bugs).

I have to say I love this game! If you have ever played old school strategy games its just like that. Its like Medieval one if you have ever played it. You get to play as five factions france,Britian,Prussia,Austria,Russia. there are many other smaller factions such as spain,ottomans,portugal,hanover,egypt,sweden and so on. I have to say though that I am kinda sad that you can't play as spain and the ottomans because they are two of the bigger small factions in the game. This game can be very hard in the early parts of the game because if you invade one of the smaller nations other nations will come in and fight you and you wont be able to hold all of them off because you don't have the military to fight them, So pick your battles carefully. The way you get allies is by throwing money at them and getting them into your alliance that way, Once you have reached 100% likeness then they will join your faction. they can get liberated by having a enemy nation take their capital back. The ingame battles are nothing to brag about, their okay but if you spam a lot of cav you will win the day, there still fun. The only thing that makes me mad is that I feel like the whole game is being rushed and that time flys way too fast! and smaller nations join bigger nations way too soon, but that is just what I think. I know that there is a bug where after you win a battle it crashes so I would look up the fix online before ♥♥♥♥♥ing about it here on steam. I would also like to say there are a few mods on the internet that help fix the OP militia who can just into hand to hand combat and destroy your whole army xD Other then a few of these things its a great game and I love it so much, I wish there was a world war one mod for this game because I feel like it would be so good. Last words though is this is totally worth the five dollars or less, Its like you got yourself a sub just try it out and see if you like it. But really someone make that mod idea, I will give you idea and ♥♥♥♥ just please....Someone take up the sword and do it!

This game came out just before Rome Total War did due to that it was kinda overshadowed by a popular AAA turnbased strategy game. The best way to sum this up is this is essentially Napoleon: Total War with Romes graphics. This has Naval battles, land battles, a tech tree, different approaches to diplomacy. You can peacefully annex entire countries if you play it right. If you can look past the 2005 graphics and the limited playable nations this is a great game and a welcomed unearthed relic thats been added to steam.

I say it's worth it only because it's 2.50, which is equivilant to about two sandwiches. I think I had a little more enjoyment out of this game than two sandwiches, and it contains all natural ingredients with zero calories.

For it's time it's a great game. It is pretty much a copy and paste of Napoleon Total War, but way more balanced.

Balance score - 10/10

Optimization is great aswell. I'm assuming by now all computers can run this. I had no lag or FPS drops.

Optimzation score - 10/10

Graphics are a little meh.... They were great for it's time, but now just look a little silly.

Graphics score - 6/10

Effects of the game are awesome! All the way from blood and gore, to runny and exhaustion, to smoke from guns and even melee fights seem really awesome.

Effect score - 10/10

So I urge all to buy this game! It's a must have if you're a big RTS fan. Final score is a 10/10!

Imperial Glory is a fun bare bones RTS, while the game is not as complex and pretty looking as Empire:Total War it is still a fun game and worth buying if you are an RTS junkie like myself. The campaign is just as interesting and fun as the Total War campaigns, while the actual battles are fun albiet more arcadey then any of the Total War games.
