HASH(0xa0d33408) out of 5 stars A pretty good guide, although it focuses on the scenarios 15 Jun. 2003
By Max Beckman-Harned - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this guide because I love the game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds (I'll assume anyone who reads this will already have played the game so I won't describe it). I recieved an excerpt with my copy of the game which had the chapter on tips on playing the game (times for moving through tech levels, etc.). I was excited, but slightly disappointed to find that a large portion of the guide details how to get through all the scenarios rather then the normal game, which I was more interested in.
There is the (pretty good) story for the first chapter (although it goes in the some-stormtroopers-are-clones theory, where I go more for the (noncanon?) view detailed by Timothy Zahn's trilogy), and then the book goes into a overview of the main menu (what each button does). The next chapter was the excerpt included in my game (which is a good chapter). After that, detailed stats on every unit/building in the game, and then a neat transcript of a conversation about the different civilizations, along with a tiny chapter on strategies.. Pages 63-175 (out of 204) detail every single scenario. After that is another chat about multiplayer strategies, and then two appendices.
All in all, it is a very handy resource, it just won't replace you playing and finding out how to win yourself.

HASH(0xa0d335c4) out of 5 stars Only buy for the fiction! 10 Nov. 2012
By Steven Wilkins - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
That only reason I bought this was for the fiction in it. Pax Imperium: Wookie Annihilation is a fantastic short story about the Imperials invading the Wookies home planet Kashyyyk. I only have to pay shipping for this book since it's so cheap you can get it for a cent and for the short stoy alone it was well worth it. If you love Star Wars fiction, go for it.

Even though I have this game I did not review the rest of the contents in this book.
HASH(0xa11a3ed0) out of 5 stars Some useful information, but mainly a campaign walk-through 12 Aug. 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Most of the book focuses on a walk-through of the campaigns, which are pathetically easy. There are some multiplier strategies at the end though.

HASH(0xa0d33930) out of 5 stars This game rules 10 April 2002
By jake - Published on
Format: Paperback
This game is awsome if you like strategy war games there are 6 diffrent teams to pick from and there all pretty good the only flaw is that there are that you have to gather 4 diffrent kinds of crystals and stuff but other than that its one of the best starwars games ever. P.S. if you like this you have to check out the computer game starcraft its even better then this one.

HASH(0xa0d49744) out of 5 stars Save Your Money 20 Feb. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is just below mediocre in what it provides anyone who would open its covers. I have played AOE I and II a lot, and this book contributed nothing to my knowledge. I was hoping for the simplest of things: A complete listing of each Unit with its statistics, and instead got a first-grade primer on how to play a RTS game. Usually these lists of statistics on the units come in the games Microsoft puts out, but not from LucasArts. I would wait until a better book comes out instead of buying this complete ....... It is a part of the "manual" which should have been included in the game box, especially since the standard manual is lame, too. This support aspect of this game is the worst I have seen come from almost any gaming situation, and a rich company like LucasArts shows its disdain for consumers and gamers alike by packaging this ...... like this....
