Summary: I chose this review because it was unable to play online for it didn't come with the update to play online in the first place and to beat the game and not play online with people.....whats the point! Great game for its time although I wish the population limit was unlimited then the game would look realistic compared to the movie!
Summary: The original Empire at War was, lets face it, initially an underwhelming experience. It had a fairly lengthy learning curve due mostly to the real time galactic map which made juggling the structures and garrisons on all those planets difficult. Especially when other games with the strategic/tactical interface use a turn based system, ie - Total War. And on top of that, the tactical maps felt small and condensed.
Summary: This expansion on the orginal game is alright, much like the first it is filled with bugs. Lucas arts has disapointed me with this, it is annoying to have to restart again and again due to errors. Updates are released and address some of the problems but not all. The game itself expands on the oringal, adding another faction, additional units, new campaigns and maps.
Summary: This could be a very good game, if not for all the bugs that make gameplay downright frustrating at times (particularly in galactic conquest mode). I would not recommend purchasing this game until Lucasarts comes out with a patch.
Summary: the old saying that you get what you pay for is true. while these maybe stright from the factory they are not from the orginal factory or any major one from my guess. the lack of CD key and that program all together shows there is a problem. i could not add custom maps or update the program, and the tech help didn't know anything about it. if your looking for the base game with no extra frills ( i.e. updates or more maps) then thi is ur place to get it.
Summary: I spent some four+ years of being an über Star Wars fan and spent a whole three years anxiously anticipating Star Wars Episode III (which blew me away), and I saw Empire at War as something with great potential! Except I wasn't very excited about it, and didn't rush out to buy it. Now I got the chance to play it and... I'm very disappointed.
Summary: I had been tracking Empire at War for awhile, and I did note that the developers wanted the game to be accessible to everyone, not just devoted RTS fans. I hoped that it wouldn't lead to an over-simplified game that RTS and Star Wars fans would be disappointed with. I was wrong. I am a fairly enthusiastic Star Wars fan, and I was annoyed that the developers didn't stay true to the Star Wars universe all the way.
Summary: From the outset this game would appear as an overall improvement to the somewhat average Empire at War. Indeed it features updated graphics, units, maps, options and extras. Great. However under the surface you will find a game that has had no loving finish applied to it. Persistent bugs that will crash your system or ruin games which have taken many hours to develop are common-place.
Summary: Ce jeu n'est pas à la hauteur de ses prétensions. Certes, l'idée d'un développement stratégique sur trois plans (galaxie, espace orbital et sol planétaire) est séduisant, mais complètement raté. En effet, il m'a suffi de construire une grosse flotte et des bases orbitales pour protéger mes planètes et l'affaire était dans le sac. A aucun moment je n'ai eu à défendre la surface d'une planète. Je n'ai eu qu'à conquérir, ce qui est vite lassant.
