Inside Mac Games Reviews Star Wars: Empire At War
3:05 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a review of Aspyr's Star Wars: Empire At War. Here's a clip from the review:

For the uninitiated, Star Wars: Empire at War is actually the fourth attempt at the real time strategy formula in the Star Wars universe. None of the first three really were either that well received or even that fun to play. Fortunately, only the best one of the previous three, Galactic Battlegrounds, made it over to the Macintosh side of the fence. Rather than follow the exact same formula as the previous Star Wars RTS titles, Petroglyph (with porting duties handled by Aspyr) set the gameís beginning just before the original trilogy era. Sure, Iím an older guy, and I suppose my expectations of good Star Wars is colored by the first three movies produced as those were the ones I saw first, this is a good thing. Rather than follow the plots of Star Wars: A New Hope to Return of the Jedi, Empires at War is a galactic mayhem simulator, allowing you to take the mechanisms of war and construct and utilize them in any ways you see fit, given the parameters of the scenario.
