Regarding Empire at War, I recall the reviews of the time giving me the impression that the ground battles were pretty terrible. Can I assume from its entry here that they're not as bad as I thought? I've not played a decent strategic Star Wars game since Supremacy so my interest is piqued.
The ground battles arn't great, although I personally feel the more scripted engagements in the single-player are alright. Considering Supremacy/Rebellion didn't even have ground battles though, it's a step up from that.
If you liked Supremecy, you should like this. It may not be the best RTS ever as far as mechanics and design (again, re ground battles), but it's a pretty kick-ass star wars game. You get to summon in Star Destroyers and see them blast away, the expansion adds in the SSDs, you can build and use Death Stars... it's an experience, and not one to sniff at. That's why I included it, anyway.
Hello, my name is Joe - I'm 25, I've been a games writer for about 5-6 years now, and I'm a contributor to PCGamesN. I'm a freelance writer, and I dabble in a bit of PR and Marketing, and I'm also writing my first novel as well, which I hope to finish and maybe even get published in the near future.
Well, I've just finished doing a stint with Dragon Commander for review, moving on to Europa Universalis IV in a bit and hopefully Rome II later in the month. Not really playing a lot for pure pleasure right now, although I share Tim's love of Planetside 2. I need to get back into that and DayZ.
