Summary: The game itself if pretty great. However, don't even think of playing it on a new computer or on a machine running 10.7. Aspyr does not support this game in the disc version and does not have patches or updates available. If you want an update, buy it from the app store (their words, not mine).
Summary: This is a fun game and allows you to command both land and space forces. It's more of a strategy game where you direct units. I enjoyed the ability to play battles at the head of Star Wars fleets. The game includes most of the main ships from the movies (although the TIE Interceptor and B-Wing are conspicuous absences), as well as new vehicles. As fun as it is though, the concept gets old pretty quickly.
Summary: This was my first mac game and it came through in flying colors. It is WAY faster than on the pc. game is a bit lacking compared to its pc-only expansion, but its campaigns are well thought out and full of options. Definitely would recommend this to anyone with a leopard or better mac osx.
Summary: I have a mid 2007 macbook with the maximum specs (at the time). I thought this would be a powerhouse machine for this game. I was wrong. The game lags way to much if the settings are above the default. I suggest the PC version. Besides it is very expensive for macs. The cost is not worth it.
Summary: DeathStar, star destroyers, fighting in space , fight on land; what more could you want. YOU are the Supreme Commander to take over the Universe. Take charge as the Rebellion or Empire! Use your talent to crush the enemy. Command your fleet and battle your way through levels concerning you and your allies: as hon solo, Luke skywalker and or the emperor, and also yours and truley Darthvader.
Summary: Several times I just couldn't stop playing. The strategy involved in this game is superb. The galactic conquest part is the utmost best. An example would be if I say lose Corellia I can hit the Empire wit a force the have never seen before. The game is just so good i'm typing this to readers to BUY THIS GAME NOW!
Summary: Great game overall. I played Star Wars Rebellion (the game which this apparently was based off of) back in the '90s, and really enjoyed it. When I saw the trailer for Empire at War, it was like an updated version of Rebellion. Empire at War is great because you control everything from the large-scale economic/industrial growth (like creating factories and economic centers on different planets) to commanding the movement of different fleet all the way down to commanding...
Summary: Seems that most of the negative reviews of this game don't see the game for what it is, which is kind of an animated board game. You control troops and vehicles on the planet surface, building and preparing and working out a strategy for capturing enemy bases and building up reserves of both defenses and credits (which does strike me as funny; I thought basically the Empire just took what it wanted, eh?).
