Awakening of the Rebellion 2 is something completely new compared to version 1.1, as you now get an improved techsystem which is linked to the shipyard system, story events that let you reenact famous situations from the moves, as well as a completely overhauled balancing. Videos, voiceovers, new sounds as well as particle effects let AotR 2 become the most intense StarWars experience you ever had.
This mod creates a deeper game play based more on the old game Star Wars Rebellion. It brings many strengths, making it a FAR richer experience than before. I LOVE this mod. However due to the game engine, or rather the systemic issues WITH the engine, this mod sees horrible lagging. If this could be fixed, this would be a game I would pay again for. Well done and I hope to see a new Lucas Arts production with a better engine based on your game.
My only problem with this mod was some of the translations from German to English were either not done or they had poor grammar, but that hardly detracts from the game play or any of the features. Definitely deserves a 9.5 out of 10, but Mod DB's rating system only allows integers in the ratings.
My favourite FOC Mod so far.
It adds many new units, the zann consortium is changed into the black sun and numerous other changes making this mod a masterpiece.
The ground part is worth mentioning, since it adds a new style of gameplay, for example the rebellion commandos. You´re able to raid a planet with some few ground troops and so it is possible to conquer a planet without having to fight the orbital fleet.
The only disadvantage of this mod is also his strongest feature....
The AI!!! It is completly overhauled and won´t let me play a relaxed GC.
So if you are looking for a new challenge in FOC this mod is for you.
Danke SMG für eure Mühen
One of few really great mods. Very frustrating at first (you need to INSTALL it carefully) and later (it's DAMN HARD to win).
But it has great galaxy map, units, heroes and game balance.
Money are scarce, resources limited, ships expensive. Does it feel like fun? ;)
