Summary: This game (and the follow-on expansion) were touted as the next generation in Star Wars Games. Well, there's alot left to be desired from a game. Initially, the game is fun because it's new but pretty soon, you realize that it's just the same thing over and over again...you build fleets, destroy enemy fleets, fight land battle and move on. The thing is that the land battles are all the same really.
Summary: I am an avid gamer and have been a real RTS fan even before I graduated to PC games from PS2. I have played only a few space based RTS games and none have kept me immersed as EaW. Me personally do not like games that can be overly challenging and taxing I work too much and too hard to do that much thinking if I wanted to think that hard I would play chess. EaW is a good game in my opinion. The game has has a good play balance between flow of game vs. diffculty.
Summary: This game is quite decent and is playable on most computers as it does not have high system requirements. The developers of this game have tried to create a goood stratergy game but in doing so they have ignored some of the important aspects a gamer looks for. Firstly the graphics of this game are somewhat bearable and the ships and the units have been made so small that they look like ants!.
Summary: This game is fairly good. There is a galaxy wide risk style game which plays simliarly to Total War strategic map. Unlike Total war, it is played in real time. From this level you build fleets to invade other star systems. You than choose to fight or auto resolve, this can be done with both space and land battles. The tactical game is fun, since you get to fight with units from the star wars movies.
Conclusion: I was relley looking forward to this game but it was no good.If you whant this game get the gold pack not single because if you get forces of corruption first you cant play it only if you have installed Empire at war.The games are fun but you would get bored in about a day.
