Summary: For a person who is a fan of Star Wars and RTS games like Ages of Empires, this game was a dream come true. You have several fractions from the history of Star Wars to choose from to represent: Royal Naboo, Galactic Empire, Rebel Alliance, Gungans, Wookies, and Trade Federation. Each have their advantages involving units, resource gathering, building, and tech.
Summary: It's based on the Genie engine used for AoE, and man it is so great! A lot of things were copied from AoE 2 (unique unit at the castle, loom as basic training, trebuchet as something else with 16 range, etc.), but there is nothing wrong with that. The really cool thing is each civilization has different looking buildings and units. AoE only had different looking buildings.
Summary: This was one of my favorite RTS games when I was little when I started watching the Star Wars films. The gameplay is good and the story is a nice addition to Star Wars. The only bad thing I can think of would be the fact that the graphics are old. But that shouldn't stop you from playing the game.
Summary: Galactic battlegrounds is an awesome game. It's pretty old,so the graphics aren't great, but the gameplay is near perfect. It is similar to starcraft in gameplay with a very original civ pack. I like it!
A fine game once - but it will not run on modern Macs

Summary: This is a PowerPC game. Up through Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), Intel Macs had "Rosetta," a technology for running PowerPC binaries on Intel machines. Apple discontinued Rosetta in Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion), so there is not way to run this game (or any other PowerPC binaries) without emulating earlier versions of Mac OS X, or booting an earlier version on your Mac (which might not be possible with machines released after Lion).
Summary: Star Wars is one of my favourite film sagas and favourites for video games! I like strategy games that take strategic thinking and I can't wait to beat this game on single player mode for the original version and the Clone Campaigns expansion!
