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.

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.

I would recommend for those who like empire. It is much simpler in terms of interaction with the game map. Diplomacy is essential: war, treaties and trade. Its better for those who like the battles. If you have a lower spec pc this is an ideal etw substitue as is less graphically powerful
