At the main menu you have a choice of weather to follow a specific story-based campaign, where you must progress through ...

Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds (PC): Galactic Battleground

  • Summary: If you have read my other reviews you will know I'm not a huge fan of RTS games because of the fact you need different resources to build stuff and it takes ages. However I will buy the game if it's a theme I like, in this case star wars, unfortunately you do have to get resources but if you're a fan you can put up with it.
  • Pros: Great for Star wars fans and its a change from age of empires.
  • Cons: Will get boring quickly as basically its just the same over and over again.

Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds - Utterly Charming Take On RTS

23 May 2009
  • Excerpt: "...track record with regards to Star Wars based games, none of them really offered something never seen before. The bad news? Nor does Galactic Battlegrounds. Don't get me wrong, I loved the game, it really was an excellent game, but as far as a Star Wars fan was concerned it was mediocre at best. The goal of the game was to basically collect resources, build and army and destroy the enemy. The basic outline of any RTS game. There was an element of ...
  • Pros: Its Star Wars, Faster Paced Than Age Of Empires
  • Cons: The Online Side Of The Game Is Dead, Not As Much Star Wars As I Hoped

  • Summary: Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds is a fantastic stratergy game set in the style of command and conquer. You can play campaign missions as wookies, rebel alliance, the empire, trade federation, gungans etc. there is a multi-player mode where you can play on a network or online, skirmish mode where you can pick your team and your opponents, the type of gameplay (my fave is deathmatch where you play til your opponent is totally wiped out).
  • Pros: never short of things to do, missions, vehicles, control an entire army
  • Cons: can only play as popular starwars characters in campaign mode

  • Excerpt: "...from one of the 5 star wars films created so far. One of the best parts of the game is the random campaign menu where you can design your own game containing the rules you like and the victory conditions you prefer. You can choose the planet you play on, how many troops you are aloud to have, the number of opponents you have to defeat and if your are aloud to ally other teams. Some of this may sound a little confusing but I assure you if you remember ...
  • Pros: Good game layout and graphics
  • Cons: A bit repetative in places

  • Excerpt: "Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds (SWGB) is a strategy based game moulded around the popular Ages of Empires game engine. The game functions in pretty much the same way as Ages of Empires 2 and the only difference is that this game is set in the fictitious Star Wars universe. When you load the game you are presented with the main menu which gives you access to the games various modes of play and other features associated with the game. The first ...
  • Pros: Very detailed, many units and buildings, great variation of game play
  • Cons: Very similar to Ages of Empires, you have to like Star Wars

Mostly for Star Wars Fans, but Still Very Playable

  • Summary: If you have played Age of Empires II, it won't take very long to get the hang of this game. However, that might make this game boring if you've worn out your interest of that game. Even so, the AE II engine has been completely reworked into the Star Wars Galaxy, with much of the familiar characters, vehicles, and planets of the movies. Playing the scenarios lets you use various main characters such as Darth Vader and Chewbacca.

ugh....soooooo boring

  • Summary: I used to like this game. was kind of fun. not it bores me out out of my wits. Let's start out with the graphics. Ok, the Millenium Falcon is huge in the movie, but in the game...(sigh)its the size of about ten people. Lets look at the Jedi and Sith. The only difference between the two is that they fight differently with different colered light sabers. If a jedi comes to an enemy building, why the heck would he hack at it with his LIGHTSABER?

  • Summary: This was possibly created by the most inept minds in the industry. A realtime strategy game based on Star Wars? This game has many flaws, which I won't go into detail with, but some other ones that really stick out. 1. The graphics. Come on. This is the 21st century. We should expect good graphics for any game on a Mac. These graphics are wicked blocky, and most of the explosions look pasted on at best. 2. What kind of Jedi hacks buildings with his lightsaber?
