    Even if the worst mistakes and bugs would be fixed via patches, Imperial Glory would still only be mediocre. [July 2005, p.71]
  2. For if I would not play the game more than ten seconds if I didn’t have to review the game, why would I recommend any voluntarily play this game?

    A very pretty game. Both better AND worse than Rome total war. The province overview is not quite as good; there's less you can do and A very pretty game. Both better AND worse than Rome total war. The province overview is not quite as good; there's less you can do and it's too abstracted; it jars with the realism of the battle view. However, the battles are BETTER than total war. Whereas total wars' terrain is flat and uninteresting, glory's is just plain beautiful - in fact the best I've seen, it's fun just to look at the trees and windmills etc. Overall, I rate it slightly higher than Total war. Don't miss it. Ignore the naysayers - a lot of them seem to already be total war converts; but I don't see any reason why there should just be ONE good RTS (One to rule them all???) This one's a peach ! Full Review »

    Campaign: 10/10

    Real-time battles are nothing out of the ordinary, but the campaign mode is very addicting. Don't let the lack of nations
    Campaign: 10/10

    Real-time battles are nothing out of the ordinary, but the campaign mode is very addicting. Don't let the lack of nations scare you, there are dozens of ways to beat the campaign.
