Amazon.co.uk Review

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

Star Wars games have been having a rough ride of it over the last few years. Lucasarts simply hasn't been able to call its efforts a real success beyond its seminal X-Wing series and the Jedi Knight (Dark Forces) first-person shooters. Force Commander was an unmitigated flop which had attempted to create a fully 3D real time strategy game to the line-up, and it's largely because of this that the developers went back to the conventional RTS formula for this title, Galactic Battlegrounds. This particular edition includes the Clone Campaigns expansion disc, which allows you to play as a General of the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy (from Episode 2) as well as for the previously included factions.
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.

This game is probably the best Starwars game I have ever played ever it is just perfect for every one who likes starwars and any one who likes strategy games. If you like this type of game it will be just the PERFECT game for you and you will be sure to learn the names of different heroes like Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo Chewbacca Yoda and so on Plus also the names of units from a trooper to a big ATAT.
Not only do you get to choose from Lots of units and heroes but there are also 6 teams to choose from wookies, royal naboo, the Galatic Empire, the gungans, the trade fedration and the rebels.
The music in starwars galatic battlegrounds is great too. Depending on which team you choose the different music you get. There is a map creator where you can make any building unit hero or any team to make, be and play on.
The campaigns on starwars galatic battlegrounds is also fantastic you get to choose from a training mission to the gungan campaign the trade federation campaign the rebel campaign the galatic empire campaign & Chewbacca's campaign.
Then you have the even better Clone campaigns where you get to be the republic and the bounty hunter clones plus not only these 2 teams but also get the two new campaigns and improvements on the other teams and new improved map creator.

The game is fairly easy to pick up and get started, and the campaigns suck you into the starwars universe and get you learning how everything fits together. They get more challenging, and you work on to ever more complex scenarios from episodes 1 and 2. At any time, you can go into a standard game, and these are highly configurable, allowing you to change the map size, resource levels, population limits, etc etc. You can change the difficulty too.
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 saw this game and saw the price and had to buy it!!
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.
