About this product
- Product InformationLucasArts and its most popular license from a galaxy far, far away explore the real-time strategy genre for a third time with Star Wars: Empire at War. Set a few years before the events in Episode IV, the game distinguishes itself by letting players take command of the Rebel Alliance or Galactic Empire throughout the entire galaxy, offering a wider assortment of strategic possibilities. Instead of concentrating on one particular region, players must also consider the ramifications of their actions on other planets as well as in space. Each faction makes real-time choices on a galactic map using available ground troops, fleets, and other units from the Star Wars universe, including such iconic characters as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett. The goal is to defeat the opposing side by gradually taking control of as many star systems and strategic points as possible.
The more star systems under control of the Empire or Rebellion, the more resources it will have to build defense systems, bases, and units. Yet before players can set foot on one of the over 40 featured planets, including Tatooine, Hoth, and Dagobah, players must first gain orbital control of each planet through space combat. Surviving units can then be deployed to the planet's surface to engage in tactical ground battles influenced by both weather and terrain. An assortment of familiar vessels, troop types, and structures are available to command, from AT-ATs and speeder bikes to X-wings and TIE fighters. Victories and defeats will persist throughout the game, causing players on both sides to rethink their strategies as the galaxy changes. Three play modes include a galactic conquest mode, a story-driven campaign mode, and an online skirmish mode supporting up to eight players.

Good strategy game..
They're many RTS game that change the world of game,Empire at War doesn't enter in this category,but it's a pretty good one...
The goal of the game is to take control of the entire galaxy,taking planet after planet to the ennemy hand,build defense,build fleet on land and even in space,recruit special unit like mercenary or bounty hunter like Bobba Fet...
Each faction have their own kind of weapons and defense system.
One thing thats cool is in exemple,you're attacked by the empire fleet on planet Tatooine,uhuh and so?Well you can use the planet defense ion cannon you build to destroy the strongest capital empire ship shield and order your x-wing to finish the large vessel and take advantage of the situation to destroy the ennemy fleet while the confusion still go on and before they regroup,that's awesome,and even Lord Vader couldnt see this coming!There many way to play and many way to win...
Il y a beaucoup de jeux video qui ont revolutionner ce monde des virtuel,Empire at War ne rentre pas dans cette catégorie,mais c'est un fichu bon.
Le but du jeu est de prendre control de la galaxie,arracher un par un les planetes des griffe ennemis en construisant vos propres flottes sur terre comme dans l'espace,construire vos defense planetaire,et dans vos situations les plus pénible engager des mercenaires ou des chasseur de primes comme Bobba Fet.
Chacune des deux factions a leur propres arsenal et leur propres technologies.
Une chose qui est bien,c'est un exemple des nombreuses stratégies;Vous etes attaquer sur la planete Tatooine,oui et alors?Vous pouvez utiliser vos defense planétaire pour completement détruire le bouclier du vaisseau amiral,envoyer vos chasseur x-wing et utiliser la confusion pour détruire la flotte ennemis avant qu'ils se regrouppent et reforme une stratégie..Meme Darth Vador ne l'aurait pas vu venir!Une autre chose qui est bien;on peut assigner a chaque flotte un commandant sur terre ou dans l'espace afin de maximiser les attaques.Il y a beaucoup de chose a dire sur ce jeu,beaucoup de facon de jouer et de gagner.

Star Wars Empire at War :The Empire is Upon You
May the force be with you, Because your going to need it when it comes to playing Star Wars: Empire at War. It's not your standard real time strategy game, however it is doing it best to stand out as a pioneer. It's always to good to have a game that can pull you back it to the world of "Star Wars." Empire, Rebel, Obi Wan, Luke skyway Walker and Han Solo, Lea are always great. Plus it is good to see Admiral Ackbar as well.
Empires at War seems to throw the rule book away when it came to make the game. But some objective in the game are unclear. Taking key locations seem to have no real point or affect the out come of the battle durning the game. Taking the power station or sheild genterator might just open the planet out for a space bombardment, but I'm not complete sure. They let that out of the manul. There just a point to be taken. However it is a notable difference from Rebellion and the super Micro management that wasn't like by many.
One of the strategic point is good in the game is destroying build. They [lay a key point in battle in the game. Destroying them helps a lot in game. Extra help from planet local occupants help. Gungans and Ewoks are more than cannon flounder.
Empire at war take time. When I say time I mean hours of it. Campaign Mode is so, so, but soon you learn how to play the AI isn't much fun. Online games take a long time. And if your ooppent gives up of disconnect it makes it a big waste of time, especial if you looking for them most of the time. Interface management is sort of bad. You will get lost in were certain key units are at and what planet the factory is on. Guessing where Han or Luke is. Where in Blue Blazes in my main assault ship. To many stacks, I'm going out of my mind. A little more time building the interface would have helped a lot.
Building mines and mining for minerals is a source of income. That "so original." Mining system on some planet do great why others do less than average. No idea why and no idea how to improve it. There is way to find info on the mine, but it is a lot of pointing and clicking and being lucky if you can even find the beeping little droid to click on. Keep a piece of paper near by so you can write much need hits down. Usual you wouldn't need the manual that comes with the game for anything. However here you do because every thing isn't listed in the game for one. The bonus that each planet has for owning it. The interface work well once you are forced to come to terms that you have no choice but to deal with it. One of the great things are eh space battles. And just like the movies, big pace battles lead to the decisive victories and losses. But you will still have a chance as you go and hide and work on the development of new technology, build Star Bases. Which leads to a lot of defensive playing as hopeful you can plan an assault before the enemy does. But it come to a time when that both side can afford to buy just about everything they want and each side is just throw fleet of battleships and fighters, X- wings and Bombers at one another, however that just means more tedious managing for you. A lot of managing. It's easy to get lot in it. Who knew it was this tough ti run and Empire or a Rebellion
Maybe we could have been saved from this tediousness if it was more of a turn base game and we were lead on a linear track in the campaign mode. But over all it one of the games in Which Lacus Arts Dared to be different. Dare to make a change.Read full review

Empire at War Gold Pack for Windows
Wonderful Game.. A Must Have for any Star Wars Fan, A Great Command and Conquer style game, The Graphics need a little work. I enjoyed the Empire at War version
but this game has the Forces of Corruption expansion, and the current patches.
It was easy to load and then I started playing it, without any problems.
