Republic at War is a total conversion mod for the game "Empire at War Forces of Corruption". The mod replaces the Empire with the Galactic Republic and the Rebel Alliance with the Confederacy. The mod 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 campaigns of the Clone Wars such as the Outer Rim Sieges. Players will have the choice to fight as 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.
Another mod for EAW! However this one is different. It does what few mods have attempted and thats making it a total conversion. This mod does a great job at that goal and is almost complete. However there are issues within this mod that makes not Mod of the Year IMO.
The graphics here are amazing and are the best in any EAW mod ever. The skins are higly detailed, the explosions are epics, and a whole host of minor details really makes this game feel very alive and realistic. Nice job indeed!
The AI in this game is very different. In this one, the AI is smart and tactical and is as close to a real player as possible...assuming you can get it to work. There have been many complaints about it, mostly about the CIS AI. I have reinstalled everything and I feel Z shrugs off and says "you installed it wrong." I'm sorry but thats not good enough and your site does not give very good suggestions. I did all 3 steps and none of them worked. So now what? To bad so sad? This area needs work. Furthermore the AI is extremely aggresive and any newbies are going to hate this game, even on easy mode. Can't there be like a trial mode, to get a feel of some of the changes in this game? This takes me to my next point
I feel there is some good balance, especially in Space for the most part, but it is easy to say that the CIS has a bigger advantage than the Republic. They get the Malovelence at Tech 3...what? This mostly lies in the players tactical choices and how they act on it, but the Clone Troopers are frail, and do nothing. A group of SBD's can wipe an entire squad in seconds and most of the Rep vehicles are weak and have no armour. Furthermore, the Fighters are very strong in this game as they can easily be spammed and can bring a fleet down in seconds.
I feel, while this mod is the best in the EAW library, it still needs work. You have done a great job Z and look forward to your future expansions!
This game is great, amazing graphics, amazing gameplay everything is right! some unlike some mods, like one i know where clone troopers shoot green lazers which is weird, this one is perfect! however, the reason i am rating this 6/10 is because of one problem, not shor if i am the only one with this problem or if its just me but it is just too damd hard on galaxy mode! i put the setting on easy and max out the money usally, but when i doso, i only have enough money to build like 2-3 star ships, then 2-3 minutes through the game, the enemy attacks me with 100s of star ships! I'M NOT LIEING!!! THEY ATTACK MY PLANETS ONE BY ONE ON EASY WITH 10 STAR SHIPS OF EACH CLASS AND EACH PLANET THEY ATTACK IS A DIFFERENT FLEET!!! how are they able to make 100s of star ships when i can only make 2-3????? so i say good game but HORIBLE gameplay UNLESS your the best gamer in the unerverse, to play this mod, YOU'LL HAVE TO BE!!!!!
I'm just gonna give it a 6 for the heck of it, unfortunately I cannot play this game, I decided to reformat my computers, still it gets 1 error it shouldn't be getting. So unfortunately my rating is just for the videos and the pictures. Good job z3r0x. My error was the emulator error which seems unfixable since I even tried reformatting. So Good game all of you guys, So one day I hope I can play all of the hard work of the z3r0x and the team.
