About This Game

Command or corrupt an entire galaxy in the definitive Star Wars strategy collection. It is a time of galactic civil war. Will you take up the reins of the Rebellion, assume control of the Empire, or rule the Star Wars Underworld?
Star Wars Empire at War:
From the lives of soldiers to the deaths of planets, you are the supreme galactic commander. It is a time of galactic civil war. Take up the reins of the Rebellion or assume control for the Empire. Whichever you choose, it will be up to YOU to steer your side to ultimate victory. Command everything from individual troops to starships and even the mighty Death Star as you execute campaigns on the ground, in space and across the galaxy. Forget tedious resource gathering – just jump straight into the heart of the action. You can even change Star Wars history! Every decision affects your next battle and every battle helps shape the fate of the galaxy.

  • Conquer or liberate over 80 ground and space locations including Kashyyyk, Tatooine and Dagobah – each with its own strategic advantage.
  • Command iconic Star Wars characters such as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and Boba Fett.
  • Pit X-wings against TIE fighters or command an entire fleet of Star Destroyers in space. Then send down land forces to secure the planet below.
Star Wars® Empire at War™: Forces of Corruption™:
You’ve played the light side. You’ve played the dark side. Now play the corrupt side! As Tyber Zann you’ll stop at nothing to become the most notorious criminal leader since Jabba the Hutt. With all new tactics like piracy, kidnapping, racketeering and bribery, you can control the shadowy forces of corruption in your attempt to rule the Star Wars underworld. Don’t just control the galaxy…corrupt it!

  • All new units and planets: Command over 28 new underworld units as well as new Rebel and Imperial forces and heroes on 13 new planets.

A decent game made great by its space battles and player mods

Plenty of bang for your buck, with three campaigns, about a dozen turn-based conquest modes, and the classic skirmish battles. However, if you're an experienced RTS fan, you might find the ground battles lacking. Therein, the unit controls are imprecise, the balance questionable, and the pop limit placed painfully low.

That said, the space battles are magnificent. Each class of ship has its place, and the pop limit gives you far more breathing room. The game just shines here.

And when vanilla bores you, check out some of the mods on moddb. I personally recommend the Revenge of Thrawn and Republic at War projects, both of which offer a plethora of new units familiar to longtime Star Wars novel and game fans.

I like this game and how you can use the camera in a cinematic view. I also just thoroughly enjoy Star Wars. I would recommend this game to others if they are into strategy gaming.

Theres nothing i love more then laying waste to rebel planets, leading vast armadas against the enemies of the empire and destroying entire planets with the death star. If you love mercilessly killing rebels this is the game for you. 11/10

Makes me think harder than other games like this, Beats C&C to me. I give it a 7/10. Only cus the rebellion is op when it comes to their top teir. A light factory can make the speeders, That are the only (In the reg game) flying unit you can deploy.

Star Wars Empire at War Gold, is a double pack which contains both the original Empire At War along with the Expansion Forces of Corruption. It uses the gameplay of real-time strategy and has numerous units. The graphics look like what you expect in a PC game, and it makes it look real. The units have strengths and Weaknesses, which are easily taken care of. The gameplay is solid, and the Expansion dives deeper into the story of what nobody has seen in the movies. I would reccomend it for all my friends, becuase it is a well made Star Wars game.

Great game ....when it worked. the expansion pack crashes when you try to launch a game. pity too this was the whole reason i just wasted 20 bucks on this game. :( seems to be happening a lot with some of Steam version games as of late. i guess just crappy programing on the part of Steam. Dont waste your money on the steam version. buy it on disc or download it from another platform.
