Imperial Glory is a historically based strategy game, set in and around Europe during the early 1800s, which features both real-time, 3D battlefield warfare and a more strategically minded, turn-based "Imperial" mode — not unlike the games of Creative Assembly's Total War series. On the battlefields, units can occupy buildings or hide in forests for tactical advantages, and real-time naval warfare is featured as well. From the imperial overview perspective, virtual rulers must manage the economic, diplomatic, and technological development that fuels their nations' conquests.
Players choose to command the forces of Austria, France, Great Britain, Prussia, or Russia, each nation presented in a way that reflects its distinct cultural trappings. Each of these factions suffers different weaknesses and enjoys distinct strengths, though the game is designed to balance these advantages and disadvantages for engaging play no matter which is chosen. Imperial Glory was developed by Pyro Studios, the company known for its Commandos series of mission-based World War II real-time tactics games. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
