One of the predecessors of today’s hugely popular Real-Time Strategy games, Imperial Glory is set during the Napoleonic Wars era. Your ultimate goal is to conquer every enemy empire and be the sole ruler of Europe. There are five playable countries you can choose from. These areFrance, Prussia, Austria, Russia, and finally the United Kingdom. There are many more other minor countries in the game such as Spain and Sweden, however, you can make alliances or simply conquer them to add their forces and resources to your empire. During the battles, you can just auto-simulate them to learn the victor or you can observe the real-time 3Dbattlefields to command your army. You can change the positioning or tactics of your soldiers to ensure your victory against your foes. Imperial Glory also includes naval battles, which was a huge feature at the time, to carry the war into the sea thus allowing you to make different tactical decisions each time you step into the battlefield. Imperial Glorymanages to illustrate the conditions of the Napoleonic Wars pretty accurately. The most important thing about those Wars was the alliances created against common enemies and the game allows you to make crucial diplomatic decisions to have the better alliance against a united enemy.
