The graphics are as good as your system can handle. The attention to detail is simply stunning, and this becomes more apparent when you zoom close into the action. There are some particular nice heat haze effects for graphic cards capable of running Direct 9 features, and it doesn't matter if your battle is in space or on the ground, Empire at War looks as good as we hoped from whatever angle you play. It might not be the most graphical intensive game on the market today but the developers have reached their goal of making the game feel like Star Wars...Empire at War comes bolted with quite a few gameplay options and modes of play. Single player is catered for quite nicely with Rebellion and Empire campaign modes as well as a few special 'Galactic Conquest modes', which although are similar in gameplay to normal campaign modes, more individual tweaking is allowed before you start the game. There's also a skirmish mode thrown in for good measure which allows you to play single battles in land or space...Star Wars: Empire at War is a colossal game from the geniuses that brought us all Command and Conquer. This one is a no brainer really, if you like the idea of directing your own version of 'A New Hope' this one is for you.
