User Rating: 9.2 | Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds PC
I'm not a real big fan of RTS's, but Galactic Battlegrounds was a much different experience for me. I'll admit that it's likely due to the Star Wars lincense attached to it. I found the license itself was used very well. The sound is classic Star Wars, and they've made lots of Characters and Vehicles from the universe available to the players. There are also a number of building and unit upgrades to set your sights on. The graphics are clear, and do the job. Although they still serve their purpose, they have aged well when you compare it to the RTS's that have followed it.

As far as the gameplay goes, I found it very addictive. Not so much the main game mind you. I barely played the campaigns included in the game. It was the map creation mode that kept me up to 3am on more than one occassion. Building then playing my own maps was fun, easy, and intutive. I fought the battles I wanted to fight. I loved every minute of it. And there was an abundance of those minutes. Online play is also available to take your gameplay even further.

Still a joy to get into, I would recommend it to RTS and Star Wars fans alike.
