Star Wars: Empire at War Gold Pack
This game is pure fan service.
The Star Wars lore we all know and love is there, and it will make any fan smile. The galactic conquest resembles a real time version of risk or Axis and Allies, and is very enjoyable. And options are numerous. Unfortunately, the conflicts are resolved through either land or space combat, which are usually solved by overwhelming force and strategy isn't as key as it is in other games.
Very Appeasing.... Its Awesome!
This game is a strategy game, which perfectly fits my style. It was very challenging game at first, but it also depends on how much militia you bring, how you directly attack them. This is criticlly important for success and it also makes you think -"how am I going to deploy these units..." Haha very funny. Honestly this game is very high in detail and it is great online. Some characters have different powers to help you acheive total power!
AN AWESOME EXPIERIENCE
When i got this game, being the geek i am, thought i would love it. AND I DID. First off the galatic conquest mode is my favorite cause you get to build, make, and control your army how ever you want. And the campain mode is great cause it gives u certain types and numbers of units which is always a hard and enteraining challange. All in all this is a great stratagy game for new and old players. But I must warn you once you start you will never wanna stop.
Mediocre and not worth the time.
There are much better RTS games out there. The only really interesting thing I found in the game was that when you play the campaign you are not only waging individual wars on the ground like your normal RTS game but also space battles and an overall long-term resource game on the star map. In some ways it is similar to games in the 4x genre like Master of Orion 2 but it fails to hold up to the Star Wars franchise standards. There isn't much to the combat itself past rock-paper-scissor unit matchups and bigger ships are better. I felt very little desire to try any kind of micromanagement tricks in most scenarios. It can kill a few hours, but I found no reason to continue playing the game after beating the campaign once.
Best game ever!!!
you gotta get this game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVE THIS GAME!
I am a huge star wars fan, so of course I had to try out empire at war, because i also love strategy games, so i loved this game. It's really cool that you get to control characters like obi-wan kenobi and the emperor. I really think they should make a clone wars strategy game, but this is a cool game too. You also get to control AT-AT's which everyone loves to use because of episode 5 and the battle on hoth. The story mode is also very detailed and very much follows the story line of the real star wars movies. In the expansion you get to control another side of the battle, which are the pirates. You can fight with both the empire and rebelion. Some of the new space ships added are awesome; there is the eclipse, which is the empire's largest ship.
