4.0 out of 5 stars My thoughts....., 7 Aug 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Star Wars: Empire at War - Gold Pack (PC DVD) (Video Game)
To be sure this is a great game and one you can certainly lose hours on. Who wouldn't want to build the Death Star and then start blowing up Rebel Bases?

Having said that after your first few games and you've got your head around the various functions of the game it does become a bit easy to win.
Regardless of which faction you play as the computer is far too easy to beat and there does come a tipping point when its painfully clear that the computer cannot hope to turn the tide which turns the game into a boring mopping up exercise for you the player - sorry but if your playing as the Empire don't expect the rebels to suddenly blow up your Death Star at their final base!

Its a great game don't get me wrong but after playing it many times (and it does take hours and hours to complete) I have never once when playing as the Rebels or the Consortium had to face a Death Star or any other Super Weapon/Ship belonging to another Faction as the computer never sees fit to build them.

Personally the game was better as simply the Rebels and the Empire, there just isn't enough planets/resources to support all three factions and give each one a fighting chance, the tipping point I mentioned comes all too soon for one or both the computer controlled factions.
