Alas, We still wait for a great Star Wars RTS

User Rating: 6 | Star Wars: Empire at War PC
This game is playable and bug free, although a little on the easy side.
While the game looks like a Star Wars game should it lacks in something.

I can't put my finger on it exactly, maybe the space battles don't feel epic enough which at times can be understandable, we need our frame rate too but it gets repetitive quite quickly.

The ground battles are very easy, for the most part the heroes feel way too overpowered and once again these battles don't feel expansive enough.

On the other hand it does have its positives the turn based galactic map is quite cool and adds a slightly different and tactical dimension to the standard RTS formula it isn't really enough to save this game.

It's not bad entertainment and it fills in some details between episode III and episode IV but there's nothing that ground shaking storywise.

This is the best Star Wars RTS to date but that isn't saying much really. We can only hope for better next time.
