The history of empires in the early 19th century was shaped by factors like strategies, troop movements, ship developments, and Napoleon. Control all these items and more as you play as Napoleon, or the head of 5 European countries battling to control the continent. France, Britain, Austria, Prussia, and Russia all seek supremacy, glory, and ownership over Europe.

The Napoleonic wars took place on many levels, and the month to month running of an empire could affect it just as much as a single battle. Imperial Glory empowers every would-be emperor with the resulting ability to move troops around their country, and the continent, perform special "quests”, and go to battle in a full 3d environment. Taking place on either land or sea, the battles require a lot more thought than most, simpler, rts's. Land battles involve positioning the proper troops in the proper places and angles, and then setting them to the right formation. A well time Calvary charge or a carefully positioned artillery barrage works wonders on land.

On the high seas the game is rigged for a far different approach. The sea battles are reminiscent of games such as Pirates!, movies such as Master and Commander and books like the Master and Commander series, as well as the Hornblower series. Your main goal is to give your ship's guns the maximum amount of coverage against the enemy while exposing your own ship the least. Larger ships of the line mounting over 72 guns plow through the game's realistic and varied waves while the smaller Frigates and Sloops fly circles around their larger brothers.

Going from the map of Europe, to Waterloo, any armchair Napoleon should be looking at this game, and looking forward to its mods (started on the demo before the game was even released.)
