One of the classics of strategy games
This game might easily be one of the best and highest quality strategy game. Set in the 19th century, this game makes the perfect mix of warfare, economy, diplomacy, and strangely, democracy (Much like Civilization
and Age of Empires
, two other spectacular strategy games). There are two ways to win this game - you can be elected world ruler by two thirds of the Council of Government, or you can choose to go the bloody way and just kill 'em all. The game is entirely turn-based between you and 7 other AI or human players. The game has a very unique and detailed system, worthy of the best of strategy games. The game looks great and the soundtrack is absolutely fantastic. It would be a wonder if strategy lovers didn't already know about this game, since it is so hugely popular and fantastic, and it's a fact that everybody loves it, so will you, my dear reader. If you're up for some serious and fun strategy, look no further - this is the game for you. You won't be sorry. Be warned, though - serious addiction may occur. Then maybe after this game you will go for the sequel, Imperialism 2.
Hooked by the demo
When I saw the demo, I was hooked. After logging more than 2 weeks playing the demo along, I ended up buying the game. This was my first computer game that I bought with my own money when I was a kid, and I had a great time with it. Game play was challenging but fun. It was a bit buggy (but what wasn't back in those days?) but ran well enough. I only wished there were more add ons to extend game play.
