Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Saga gathers the popular real-time strategy game Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds and its dynamic Star Wars: Episode II mission expansion Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns in a single package. Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Saga challenges players with more than 50 battle campaigns representing the classic and prequel Star Wars universe.
Powered by the award-winning Age of Empires: Age of Kings core game engine, Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Saga allows players to deploy vast armies of Storm Troopers, Clones, Naboo, Battle Droids, Rebels, Gungans, and Wookiees. Players manage their units, structures, and resources in single or multiplayer campaigns on Tatooine, Naboo, Endor, Hoth, Geonosis and more.
Universal conquest, armed invasion of alien planets, Wookiees and X-Wing fighter squadrons. They're all in Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds and they're all, happily, superb in this real-time strategy affair based on the highly successful Age of Empires engine.
There's nothing essentially new here for the hardened RTS gamer. Resources need to be mined, units built and technologies researched in the race to crush the opposition. What gives this the edge is the Star Wars setting and the quality of the graphics, which are visually appealing and stay accurate to the wealth of Star Wars information that already exists.
There are six basic "races": human Rebels, the Empire, Gungans, Wookiees, the Trade Federation and the Naboo, each with their own specific weapons and tools--there's nothing quite like sending a squadron of AT-ATs into battle and watching them smash the Alliance to bits.
In addition to the standard hardware afforded each side, Force alliances come into play and it's possible to side with either the Jedi or the Sith depending on your preference. It's also possible to conjure up Jedi Knights and Sith Dark Lords.
Clone Campaigns is the first add-on disk. This content mainly comes in the form of two new campaigns: the Old Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. You can choose to either take control of the shiny new Jedi controlled Army of the Republic, forefathers of those pesky Imperial Stormtroopers, or the combined armies of the Confederacy complete with the insect-like Genosians and Techno Droids.
The action in Clone Campaigns commences on Geonosis, with the aftermath of the big battle scene at the end of the movie. Each campaign features seven missions to complete and over 200 new troop, vehicle and ship units and takes you through the beginning of the infamous clone wars. New features are also added to the original game with new units, orders and effects all selectable in the older campaigns. All the new and old armies are selectable in the multi-player and Skirmish modes, ensuring you'll need to re-evaluate those tactics for warfare against the new combatants. Overall this is a great add-on which adds to and enhances an already fantastic game. --Laurent S Hall

The game itself is basically Star Wars with the Age of Empires 2 setup, whereby you go through different technology levels depending upon how many resources you have and whether you have constructed the prerequisite facilities. These then allow you to build even more complex buildings and more powerful units, and so on. Then it's just a matter of preventing your opponent from killing you while you get ready to build a massive force and stomp him into the floor. Nothing too technical, really. It's an easy game to get into, the AI is occasonally fairly inspired if you stick the difficulty settings upa bit, and the pre-made campaigns will keep you going for a while (though normally you'll be more irritated by the limitations imposed by the level design than you will about your enemies). All in all, a good little runner if you want a decent RTS.
But this is also the game's biggest turn-off: it's nothing new. The graphics are OK, but that's about it. And it's Star Wars, so the kit is unusually well-realised, and it looks and sounds good.Read more ›

This game is a REALLY good game to buy and you will NEVER get tired of it ever especially if you are a starwars fan. Really good game and you should buy it.
Watching the films after playing this gives you a whole new insight, for example using starfighters to bring down at-at walkers, or using bounty hunters to kill jedi. It all ties in really nicely, even someone who's not really a fan of the films, I found the attention to detail impressive.
It has taken me 6 months to win on the hardest level, and it really needs some cunning military strategies, such as faking attacks in one place in order to break through at a weak spot somewhere else, and abandoning cities and relocating when a superior army attacks. This is an absorbing and rewarding game, and there really is nothing like the sight of 20 jedi knights fighting a fleet of 30 at-at walkers, while starfighters and anti-air defences fight it out overhead. Age of Kings and Age of Empires are the basis of this, and they were good. However, this is brilliant.
I played it for ages and ages during the first couple of weeks. The game has so much depth and if you are a Star Wars Fanatic like myself you cannot go wrong. You can play any of the scenarios which are so in depth and detailed as you favourite characters such as Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader or some of the new ones from the newer movies.
The graphics and gameplay are brilliant as is the music. This game is very easy to play and pick-up. I was hooked from the beginning and still play it now nearly 7 months later!
A great game and even better if you are a Star Wars fan.
