MACWORLD: Star Wars: Empire at War Review

Tags:   Star Wars, 2K, Review   •   Date:  07/27/07

Star Wars: Empire at War from Aspyr Media is the Mac gaming giant’s first game exclusively for Intel-based Macs. As such, it has left a sour taste in the mouths of many PowerPC Mac users. But according to Aspyr, it had no choice—it was either do that or not make the game at all, according to the company’s director of development. Regardless of whether it should have or even could have been produced to run on PowerPC-based Macs, Empire at War stands as a fantastic real-time strategy game set in the Star Wars universe; if you have the equipment to run it, you ought to consider it. Star Wars: Empire at War eschews the prequel trilogy but also avoids directly the “original” trilogy of Star Wars films—instead, it’s set a few years before the events seen in the trio of films starring Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford. But the setup is the same—the Rebellion is stirring, and the Galactic Empire doesn’t want to see it happen.
