Republic at War is a total conversion modification for Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption. The mod replaces the Empire with the Galactic Republic and the Rebel Alliance with the Confederacy. Republic at War focuses heavily on the theatrical films but also contains content from the Clone Wars cartoon series as well as the expanded universe. Players can re-enact various Clone War campaigns such as the Outer Rim Sieges. Players will have the choice to fight as either the CIS or the Republic and wage war for control of the galaxy. Realism is key and players will have unprecedented control over how and where they fight. Push forward with an entire clone legion such as the 501st or 212th or overwhelm your opponent with a seemingly endless number of B1 battledroids. The choice is yours. There are also a number of expansions planned that will add new (as well as polish existing) content.
Actually I really liked this mod, seriously. But the concept is good yet the gameplay really sucks! The galactic conquest mode is what the game is played for yet for all the flare this game needs some serious work. The entire gameplay is completely unbalanced. The CIS is almost impossible to beat taking the FUN out of the game. and thats on easy! I found myself actually sitting down for hours and days trying to figure out strategy and that was just for one planet. The reason the republic wasn't overwelmed was that they had clones. The way this game is unbalanced is much more sad than all the flare. I rate this mod as unplayable. Once again this concept is GREAT but the game needs to be rebalanced to include a fun factor.
Great and all but they get a little bit lazy and sloppy. Like they reuse textures and models from the vanilla game rather than making new models. That alone would give it an 8, but the game is just very very VERY hard. Even on the easiest difficulty, Galactic Conquest is just unplayable when you have an attack every minute after the 14th day or so. If you are able to last a few battles it would just be toO hard to even attempt to fight, they AI because extremely overpowered, especially the CIS who begin to attack with the most powerful units. This has been such a large complaint in the community but still, there is no fix or any tips to decrease the AI difficulty ourselves. The developers should really attempt to fix this.
hey i wanted to stay something. I have got this mod for a month or two now and i would like to say that it's awesome...But i would also like too say is, Why is it so damn frustrating?! it weirdly harder than the original game on Easy! it also has alot of lagging and frame drop, but that maybe my fault. I just found it unnecessarily hard and difficult too work with. If there is a way that I can make it easier for myself and others with out doing some crazy MLG **** please talk to me.
