An infamous RTS game created by LucasArts, it was largly based off of Age of Empires, and was considered the better Star Wars RTS of the time (Others bieng Rebellion and Force Commander). Despite its age and aged appearence, it still has a small but loyal following at Heaven Games, which hosts a vault of tools which make modding the game a rather simple task.
Why does this get the ever elusive 10? Cuz I said so, and it's pretty much the only game whose map making system I can figure out. Yeah, I'm that dumb.
a nice game
Played this so much in my youth and decided, why not again... I still don't regret it
This was my first rts. It may not how it is in the real star wars says. But this what it is. They enhannced the Age of Empires 2 into an game of star wars. Great stories and more. Great mods from heavengames.com . Who can say no to an great classic rts with many ways of playing and replay. so if u have it install it for one more season. or if u don't have it buy it from Ebay. Makes sure u have the clone campaigns for an harder way of playing :D. -maxbin
This game deserved more life than it gets. It was my first RTS game, and I will never forget it!
Some day.. we will restore Multiplayer!
Extremely high quality game. Definitely worth the price. Classic 2D game, better than many "modern" 3D games. Features 6 playable factions, plus additional 2 ones in the x-pack!
It's an Age of Empires clone. Plain and simple. But it fulfilled the major task - it got me interested in Star Wars. Indeed, it's after playing this game I watched my first episode - 6th.
The gameplay is similar to that of Age of Empires 2 - collecting resources, destroying buildings and armies, meeting with known heroes and villains and so on.
The stories are quite interesting too, although they are from Extended Universe (Legends) and you play as every meaningful side in SW - from Wookies to Confederation of Independent Systems. (Except Kingdom of Naboo; there are Gungans, though.)
The only problem to me then was the lack of Episodes's campaigns.
The graphics are old, but they don't make things terrible.
There are a good number of custom-made mods, campaings, missions, and so on. Even at the end of 2016, there are new stuff here... and the game was released in 2001-2002!
In short, if you are a fan of Age of Empires 2 and a Star Wars, you should play. If not, why not?
would have given it a ten but I had nothing but problems installing this, This mod is awesome though.
Wonderful game. Beatiful graphics for sure, the original artists did a great job on it. But some aspects of gameplay feel unbalanced, but nothing a mod can't do. I'll be working on one.
Loving this Mod. Glad to see "hidden" units and "glitches" fixed. Just a bit frustrated by the tease of a next version. Ready to go with the next update. Can't wait.
