Has a great Star Wars ‘feel’ to it and was a real surprise with new strategy parts to it. Loved the space battles too! Highly recommended.

"Few problems but great"
5 stars"

Only problem on a Vista 32 bit with 4gb ram was the expansion pack didn't want to run without being in xp compatabilty mode with a XML fix from lucas arts but this was less of a pain than removing an exception off my router for Homefront's Mul­tiplayer router issue

"Absolutely excellent, from a 12 year old."

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Absolutely excellent, you have the power to build the Death Star 1 and 2, also Darth Vader's flag ship the Executor. You can only build the Death Star 2 and the Exercutor in Forces of Corruption.

REVIEWS

“Star Wars fans finally get to play a strategy game worthy of the license…As a strategy game, Empire at War delivers a true Star Wars experience. If you're into AT-ATs stomping around battlefields, Darth Vader knocking over 20 soldiers with Force push, or space battles thick with dozens of fighters swarming in between gargantuan capital ships, Empire at War will deliver all that in a fun, compelling package. You can't really lose in any game in which you can blow up a planet with the Death Star, can you? Combined with a presentation that is as epic as the films that inspired the game and a slick, dual-layered strategy design, Empire at War is easily recommendable to any strategy fan, especially those who are fond of George Lucas' space classic.” 8.7/10 – Gamespot (Empire at War)

“Not only is this a great game but like most Star Wars videogames, the production values are beyond reproach. The game looks fantastic.” 9/10 Cheat Code Central (Empire at War)

“…Gamers who are looking for an authentic Star Wars experience will not be disappointed with this one. It evokes all the charm and excitement of the childhood action figure wars that have been fought all across the nation over the last thirty years…” 7.6/10 – IGN (Empire at War)

“A colossal game from the geniuses that brought us all "Command and Conquer.” 9/10 – IC-Games (Empire at War)

“Forces of Corruption is a great addition to the Empire at War saga thanks to an interesting new faction that offers up a different way to conquer the galaxy…Most expansion packs either add much more of the same content, or try to shake up the gameplay by introducing new ways to play the game. Forces of Corruption offers a little of both, as you can still enjoy controlling the forces of the Rebels and the Empire, but you can also have fun being a criminal, too. Aside from the performance issues, if you put it all together, this is a great entry in the Empire at War saga.” 8.1/10 – Gamespot (Forces of Corruption)

“Those who disliked the repetitiveness of the original game will definitely appreciate the new faction, the new campaign and the units and abilities.” 8.5/10 – IGN (Forces of Corruption)

“A great new dimension is brought to the already stimulating Empire at War game. With more units more missions and a whole new faction to play with this game is great. Now go corrupt the galaxy.” 9/10 – PC Gameworld (Forces of Corruption)
