Summary: A cute game that is worth some exploration. The design is a bit lazy though, far too based on luck to really warrant any returns. It can't really hold a torch to the established rogue-like games given it's very limited events and equipment. The real beauty of a randomly generated game is that the richness and exploration of seemingly-limitless content and variety counterbalances the inh erently unfair aspect of the game.
Summary: What is the point of this game? Getting random treasure while randomly exploring the galaxy? Other reviewers mentioned a story I did not see one. Combat is a random affair. This game is less fun than tossing a coin and calling out heads/tails.
Summary: The game was alright if your a diehard Star wars fan like myself. But it just felt not done. Darth vader just sounded like a white guy trying to do a deep black guy's voice. And the whole game just felt rushed and to easy to beat.
Summary: Fun and challenging with a lot of fan-inspired content from the Expanded Universe. The Rebels are over-powered with their missile tanks, but what can you do? Aside from getting AT-ATs as quickly as possible. Be sure to get the official patch from Lucasarts so it can run on newer computers! Very important!
Summary: I loved the original game. The story was fantastic. The sound was great. The visuals were good for the time. Galactic Conquest was the only multiplayer I played but I highly enjoyed it and played it to death with a friend, fighting for control of the galaxy in intense large scale land and space battles, along with small fights using tactics with heroes and a few units to raid and fight ove r things. The game was extremely underrated.
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: I'm a big fan of Star Wars and this game is one of the better ones out there. You play as either the Rebellion or the Empire, build up planets, construct ships and ground forces, and invade other planets. It sounds very simple, and it is. But, I think this works in favor of the game instead of against it. This isn't some highly complicated RTS game. All you do is build and attack. The real draw for me are the space battles.
Summary: I know this markets itself as an expansion, but it's more like a new game in a lot of ways. You get a brand new faction to play with while the units for the Rebellion and Empire have been tweaked. I'll admit, the vast majority are the same, but there are some puzzling changes. For example, now you can only build the Death Star II and not the Death Star. Why not both?
