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.

I have only played this game for a little while after buying it, and I can say that it is good. Though, there are a couple downsides to it. Heres a list of Pros and Cons.

Pros:
-Game is fun, and plenty of strategies to experiment with.
-Moding community is amazing.
-Really is worth the money, with the free "Force of Corruption" Expantion.
-3 factions to experiment and play with.
-Real ships and vehicles from the movies (Including a couple that aren't).
-Balancing is great, depends how you look on it though.
-Maps that you can re-inact your favorite battles with.
-You can build the Deathstar. 'Nuff said.

Cons:
-Gameplay is fairly limited.
-Units are fairly limited.
-Ground Battles aren't exactly bad, but they aren't great either.
-Multiplayer servers shut down. (You can download third party programs to get multiplayer, though I havn't tried this yet).
-No workshop. (Mod installing isn't as easy as it could be).

So, these are my thoughts on this game. Buy it, it's definently worth it. I may edit this if I find anything in the future.
