    Great, detailed game covering the Napoleonic era. Political, trade and nation-management included. Graphics are functional, replay value high. For serious strategy - gamer.

    Highly detailed, a little bit inaccurate, sometimes vague.

    Highly detailed Napoleonic game with a high learning curve. Immerses gamer in virtually every aspect of Napoleonic warfare and is a must for the serious strategy gamer. Arcade gamers looking for pretty graphics and sound should look elsewhere.

    There are very few games that in truth i really go back to playing after long breaks playing more recent titles. Crown of glory is one of the few, it really is fantastic value.

    The different playable nations and the vagaries of diplomacy ensure that there's plenty enough reason for fans to come back again and again.

    The game tries to cover every aspect of the campaigns - economic development, technological research, diplomatic overtures, military operations, even technical battles - but none of it is particularly gripping. [Oct 2005, p.80]

    If directing your armies around Napoleonic Europe with somewhat abstract Quick Combat resolution gets you excited, you can pretty much overlook all the other problems. [Oct 2005, p.70]
