User Rating: 8.5 | Star Wars: Empire at War PC
Hundreds, if not thousands, of Star Wars fans and Real-Time Strategy players have long anticipated the release of Empire At War. The looks of the game alone convinced you that it is a very promising game.
But, would you like to know what is under the cover? Would you like to know more about the overall gameplay and graphics? Would you like to know about the variety of ships/units are available to you in space/land battles?...

In my opinion, Empire at War is a slightly above average Real-Time Strategy game. There are dozens of planets and systems to fight on and different missions/resources to gather. There is also a variety of units and ships to choose from.

To me, the graphics are horrible compared to many of the other recently-released RTS games. It seems like the ground units have been molded out of clay. There are no facial expressions/features present. The space ships, however, are spectacular in terms of graphics. You actually feel like you are commanding an Imperial/Rebel star fleet.

So, overall, Empire at War is an above average RTS game, and an even better Star Wars game. Empire at War's space battles and Galactic Conquest Mode is it's strength and would be nothing if it hadn't been added in. The space battles only could keep a Star Wars fan playing until his/her dying days. On a scale of 1-10, 1 being the worst and 10 being the best:
