The War for the Star Wars Galaxy is Under Your Command. What Would You Do?
"...a great game...the production values are beyond reproach. The game looks fantastic. Cheat Code Central
Star Wars: Empire at War puts the power to command an entire war for the Star Wars galaxy in the hands of players, giving them the freedom to determine how they play the game within the completely scalable and accessible gameplay. Set a few years before the events of Episode IV: A New Hope, LucasArts' Empire at War lets players wage war on the ground and in space, as well as experience the creation of the Rebel Alliance, the strengthening of the Empire and the beginnings of the Galactic Civil War.

IC-Games 9 of 10
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.
