Inside Mac Games has posted a review of Aspyr's recently released strategy game, Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds. Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds lets you lead the armies of Star Wars to victory in intense, real-time strategy clashes.
Here's a snippet from the review:
Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds is a definite RTS delight. It features six solid single-player campaigns, six civilizations (the Trade Federation, Gungans, Royal Naboo, Galactic Empire, Rebel Alliance and Wookies), one of the most diverse collections of units I’ve EVER seen in an RTS, a comprehensive in-game help system and INSANELY fun multiplayer action. All of these elements make for a grand RTS experience.Be sure to check out the rest of Michael Phillips' review. Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds is available from the IMG Store for just $43.
IMG Review: Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds
The campaigns are quite entertaining, especially for Star Wars fans. The first campaign is a tutorial for new comers and tells the story of Chewbacca’s father. This tutorial covers everything from resource gathering to diplomacy and combat, it’s a definite must for neophytes. The other campaigns deal with events from Episode I and IV, V & VI. For example, in the Trade Federation campaign, players control the Federation’s mighty droid army during their invasion of Naboo. Each campaign is story based, complete with in-engine scripted events. For instance, one Federation mission involves taking a small group of soldiers and a technician and infiltrating a Royal Naboo outpost for the purpose of recovering stolen data files. Campaign missions aren’t simply about resource gathering, army building and enemy annihilation. My personal favorite mission is the Galactic Empire’s attack on the icy planet of Hoth. Just like in the film, The Empire Strikes Back, players take control of a group of Imperial Walkers in order to take out the rebel shield generator at Echo Base. That mission really makes one feel like they’re in the movie. At the end of each campaign, players are treated to bonus missions. One such bonus mission is the Empire’s raid on Cloud City.
