    "Beautiful star wars based real time strategy."

    February 18, 2013   |   By LuckyLlama

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    This game is absolutely wonderful and has received a dedicated 10 years of my life. The game can be played on www.voobly.com whom also support its mother game Age of Empires II which the game was modelled off of. The game itself has improved graphics than Age of Empires II and incorporates the Star Wars Universe with excellence, providing a diverse collection of race orientated units that maintain the RTS experience of an Age of Empires game. I would recommend this game to anyone; the map editor alone has provided so many great custom scenarios over the past 10 years that have been played on-line.

    Cons

    The only cons for this game are the balance of some of the units and compatibility with newer systems. It does infact work on 64 bit windows seven systems, which i use myself. Colour problems can occur with the directdraw however there is support for this at www.voobly.com aswell as patches that can be implemented to Age of Empires 2 which work just fine on SWGBCC.

    Summary

    In summary this game is great and has provided fun and happiness for a great number of people for over 10 years; and that is what makes a great game. Longevity.

    "Old graphics, interestins story... quite short demo!"

    July 24, 2011   |   By boaconstructor

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    The Star Wars Saga presented in an isometric real time strategy game is really fun, the troops simulate all the soldiers seen on the saga.

    Cons

    The gameplay is the same as Age of Empires 2, so it lacks of any special habilities in troops, nor a decent image.

    "Nothing flash"

    July 16, 2006   |   By A-Khoo

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    GB is a small download and gives a wide variety of races ranging from the Trade Federation to the Gungans. At 70Mbs, this download will not strain your quota.

    Cons

    This game is not the best to come out of LucasArts. Based on the old Age of Empires 1 engine, GB races have the same troops (except for one special unit), and relatively poor graphics.

    "More or less a good mod for AoE"

    December 19, 2005   |   By XenuCanLickMe

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    I could say it's a good game with ok graphics, good game play and good strategy, but I wont.

    Cons

    This is just AoE with 3 differences: the units look different, the buildings look different, and there are more ranged and flying units. Otherwise this is AoE. The engine from AoE isn't even tweaked, the gameplay is EXACTLY the same. This would be an excellent download if it were simply a mod file. Worth 40 bucks it ain't

    "Waste of Time!"

    September 10, 2005   |   By Slackariah

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    -The idea of a Star Wars RTS was good, but using the AoE engine was a bad and unorigional plan.

    Cons

    -Really bad graphics.

    -Poor command interface, its very difficult to make your armies do multiple things.

    -Lame story line.

    -Its the exact same as AoE II except 10 times worse. Play AoE II if your looking for good stratagy, its cheaper to buy ($20 vs $40), and has origional and cool gameplay, unlike this clone of a game.
