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.

Very much recommend this game to any Star Wars enthusiasts, and in general fans of the RTS genre.

The Base game and Expansion are fun and engaging to play, as well as getting difficult at times, but special mention goes to the modded content available for the game and it's easy method of changing the game files, allowing you to fine-tune the game to your own specifications.

Be warned though, in Forces of Corruption prepare for an uphill battle as the Empire, Tyber Zann and his pirates and mercenaries will be the ever present thorn in your side, and that's nothing to say of the rebels.

Still though, somewhat old game, but by no means bad. I spent many an hour playing this as a younger teen, and i will continue to do so. If i had to rate the game itself i'd probably give it a 7-8/10.

The game is amazing and you can also download the Republic at War mod for free which basicly transforms into a completly different game.

Very fun, lots of mods, and so easy to mod even a monkey could do it.
Think B-Wings are OP? Just change a few numbers and all of a sudden they die in 1 shot. Think TIE Fighters are underpowered? Change a few lines and you can have them all shooting Death Star Superlasers. Probably my favorite RTS.

I really want to get the Death Star in skirmish mode. Too bad it's only in the campaign and such. Great graphics and gameplay. Totally recommend to the strategically-oriented Star Wars fans out there.

One of the best RTS games I've ever played.

The stories are ok. But the battles, especially the space battles, are awesome. Also the soundtrack is perfect. When I play the Empire, I really feel I'm the Empire (maybe I'm just nostalgic and a fan from Palpatine).

But what these points even tops are the mods. I played "The Awakening of the Rebellion" (German modders) and "Republic at War". Although I've quite often problems with the installation of AotR and that RaW lags on my laptop I love these mods. They are much more intensive and it's a real joy to play this game as a Star Wars fan. And the AI should not be underestimate in both mods.

I'm hoping for years that there will be come a similar new one like this. Until that I'd even play 1,000 hrs with it, if necessary.^^

While very old at this point, this game is supported by a ♥♥♥♥ load of mods for any style of game you want. On top of that, the conquest mode can keep a player going a long time. If you like Star Wars, RTS games, and/or a strong modding community then this is worth taking a look at.

Star wars™ Empire at war.... Got to love it. This game has to be or was one of the most popular rts games. The graphics havent aged the best but the graphics are fine. The game nolonger supports online multiplayer as the servers are down... Gameplay is just another awesome thing. There are 3 gamemodes, landcapture, space battle, and last but not least: Landbattles. The gameplay is really well done as there are so many details. either you have, plants that spit poision, nebulas,threatful blizzards, erupting lava pits, and astriod fields... You can also play on plane no threat levels if you feel like it. sadly mods arnt really a thing on steam no workshop... I recommend this game is in every rts fan's library.

9/10 Would get infantry army squished by one rebel tank...

Wow, for a game created so long ago, this Star Wars RTS really holds up well. As a fan of both Star Wars and RTS, it is nice to see these two combine into a fun and interesting combination. I love to use all of the legends tie fighter variants and kill rebel scum.
10/10 given its age and modding community, will continue to use the Death Star to wipe rebel scum off the face of the galaxy.

I was skeptical about this game at first because of how old it is. But I finally went ahead and bought it. Its amazing! As a star wars fan this game was so immersive dispite the graphics which are ok. But the sound effects, muisic and voices actually sound like they are right from the movies! For example, in other games Darth Vader doesnt really sound like vader but in this game it acctually sounds like him! The mix of space and ground battles are great! I would recommend this game to RTS fans but for star wars fans this is a MUST HAVE!!!! Only con I can think of is kinda my own pickyness... I wish they would add steam achivements since Im an achievment hunter!
