Star Wars Empire at War is the first game ever that gives you the power to command an entire war for the Star Wars Galaxy at your finger tips and the freedom to decide how to do it. The game is set between Episode III and Episode IV of the Star Wars series. This real-time strategy takes place in the wake of the Jedi slaughter that has disrupted the balance of the force. Players wage ground and space battles all in an effort to gain control of the galaxy. All of the gameplay and action within Empire at War is persistent, meaning that strategic and tactical elements from previous events will have a permanent effect on the galaxy.

  1. This game was awesome. I like the ability to play in many different battles and arenas. The game makes you build up your forces, and yet try fend off the enemy while doing so. When you invade either space or land, the only forces you get are the ones you bring with you. So if you don’t have a big enough force, then you better be prepared to retreat. I like the fact that you get to use the Death Star. If you play as the Empire and build the Death Star before the Rebels defeat you, there is no chance for the Rebels. Basically as long as you have a large enough space fleet to protect the Death Star, you will win the game. As the Rebels, you feel the stuggle for survival in the Empire controled galaxy. The Rebel campaine is very hard, even in the easy mode, but winable. Unlike when you start the Empire campaign, the Rebels have very little as far as a fleet goes. You have scronge for ships and troops. I had to play and loss many time before I figured out how to beat the empire. It took a a lot patience and time. The one thing about this game is that sucks you in and before you know it, hours of play have gone by. I would have rate this game as one of the best Star Wars Game, if not the best games of all. I am big fan of both Battlefront games, but this one takes the cake. I would recommend this game to everyone who likes stragegy type of games. I give it a five star rating for fun, difficulty, length of play, and the many different battle arenas both space and land.

  2. I had heard a few things about this game so I figured I would give it a try, I didn’t expect that much because I had tried both Force Commander and Galactic Battleground if you haven’t heard of them you are lucky. But this was actually really good and within a week I was going out and getting the expansion. The land battles are stuff we have seen before but I really like how the space battles are done. Everything is fair and balanced and this is a good buy since the price is way down from when it first came out.

  3. I’m a big fan of Star Wars and this game is one of the better ones out there. You play as either the Rebellion or the Empire, build up planets, construct ships and ground forces, and invade other planets. It sounds very simple, and it is. But, I think this works in favor of the game instead of against it. This isn’t some highly complicated RTS game. All you do is build and attack. The real draw for me are the space battles. You have a special “cinematic view” option which shows the battle in action at dramatic angles. There’s nothing like seeing a Star Destroyer duke it out with a Mon Calamari cruiser. The graphics are really something to look at.As for negatives, the ground battles are lack luster and you don’t have that many battle options. The ground battles are lack luster because the units really aren’t balanced against each other and are usually slow. In regards to the battle options, all you can do is move, attack, attack move, patrol, and use some special abilities each unit has. Some are useful, some aren’t. You don’t get to fly around your ships at all, they just move along the grid. On the positive side, you can target specific hardpoints.This isn’t the best game ever, but it’s probably the best Star Wars game to come out in a long time. I think it’s worth getting.

  4. Best video game ever made if you are a Star Wars finatic like myself. I play this over and over.

  5. Great graphics, exciting plots.
