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.

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.

+ 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

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.

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!

Addictive. Extremely good if you like grand strategy; the option of directing land or sea battles is entertaining but not essental if you're not into tactics. A really good value, have only found one bug (in a quest - no biggie).

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 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.
