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.
