Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
The Empire at War universe expands with a whole new faction of criminals and scoundrels, with dozens of new units and an engaging new single player campaign.

The lowdown:
Star Wars hasn’t had a lot of luck when it comes to strategy games but Empire at War is certainly the most convincing yet, with a clever mix of grand strategy and both space and land based real-time combat. The original game featured the two obvious original trilogy factions, but this includes a third in the form of a criminal empire lead by Tyber Zahn. As such, you no longer invade planets but corrupt them, enabling you to siphon off money and sabotage ground installations. Apart from this, the core gameplay hasn’t really changed but the new single player campaign is excellent, with a good variety of missions and cameos obscure and obvious from the classic trilogy.

Most exciting moment:
The best bit about the new single player campaign is the imaginative range of missions you must complete as the Tyber Zahn, in order to successfully corrupt planets. These include kidnapping, piracy, assassination and various other forms of skulduggery that are much more interesting than just destroying all the enemy units on a map.

Since you ask:
Zahn’s criminal consortium has all its own unique ships, but the most anticipated new units are those MIA from the first game, such as the B-wing, TIE Interceptor and Super Star Destroyer. A few units from previous Star Wars games also appear including TIE Defenders and Dark Troopers.

The bottom line:
One of the rare expansions to prove almost a necessity for fans of the original.-HARRISON DENT

4.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars: Empire at War Forces of Corruption 29 Aug 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a very good game. Initally it starts of a little bit slow and is hard to get into when compared to the orgional star wars game. However once you get into then the game is really good fun and the end battle is reall top class

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting... 10 Nov 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've only just put in a few hours on this add-on. The AI is much improved, as the units automatically use there 'special weapons' when you need them too, i.e. the speeder bikes drop charges before they're wiped out. Also, some units seemed to have gained a bit more stamina, rather than just falling over at the 1st laser shot. Overall, It's great to be able to play a more difficult game with some new challanges, I just wish my 1.6ghz laptop had a bit more umph! Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Expansion 2 Nov 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Great to play, must have for any Star Wars fans, graphics game play are the same as SWEAW, but some of the new units such as the super star destroyer is amazing, the Zann Consortium (ZC) has a upper hand in space conflict with advanced tech available sooner (for example by the time the empire has victory classes, the ZC has battleships, the ZC however lacks ground defensive capabilities and is best suited to offensive than defensive. There is only one story based campaign for the ZC, but unfortunately the Empire cannot build the Eclipse, it is only available in the story based campaign.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rebellion? Empire? NO Gangster! 4 Jan 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Brought to you by some of the great minds that made the first games of this type (Thats right petroglyph games houses some of the staff from westwood studios who made Dune 2000) made an awesome version of star wars and now this its expansion pack. Taking command of the even darker side of the galaxy, No not the Sith, The Corrupt side, but the Zaan Consortium is no friend of the well known Jabba, not anymore at least. build up your forces, corrupt works, bribe troops and bring the empire and rebellion down from an angle neither expected.
