Imperial Glory For PC Reviewed
8:11 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

GameDaily recently reviewed the PC version of Imperial Glory, a fully 3D strategy war game set in the Napoleonic era and featuring both land and sea battles. The game, which was recently released for the PC, will be coming to the Mac courtesy of Feral Interactive.

The slow-paced turn-based portion of the game is actually very satisfying, and if the player chooses to skip over commanding battles, that can be the whole game. In a sense, this game could compete with similar turn-based games like Civilization , but in a very small way. The diplomatic tools are well developed, complete with trade possibilities and mutual defense pacts. Aspiring leaders can even plan strategic marriages of heirs to help relations with other nations. Additionally, players need to research technologies to stay ahead of the war curve. Being the first to discover certain technologies will unlock quests, which creates one of the most unique ideas of the game. Being the first to discover medicine, for example, will unlock a quest. Achieve a specific population point, and you will have hospitals in every territory. These quests are roughly equivalent to the bonuses one might receive through building a Wonder in Civilization and helps to direct gameplay.
