Well, if it comes out on Thankgiving then I have a problem. Were always gone on Thanksgiving . :( I imagine that when I get to play it I will play each race at least once.

08-01-2001, 01:50 AM

I'll play it a lot. At least until i beat all the civs,and my fave ones twice. Then i'll move on to MP, and play that until FFX comes out.

oooo....real war. Thats a good game. I like how all the units are made after REAL weapons of war.

kvan, i actually have a 95mb demo from pcgamer of real war. they actually used that game as a means of training actual u.s. military personnel. the graphics are amazing, the most realistic graphics of a realistic rts game i've seen.....

08-02-2001, 12:18 AM
Yeah I have that demo too.
I didn't know they trained military personal with it:eek:

08-02-2001, 12:23 PM
would they train Jedi with GB ?

They could use JKII to train jedi. Hehe

They could train the Rebel Ground forces with GB.

Real War should be an interesting game to mess with, too. i think it comes out this month sometime.....

08-02-2001, 09:58 PM
Until the X-Pack comes out, then I'll play it ... forever!!!

*Hopes the Yuuzhan Vong and the Mon Calamari are in the expansion*

08-02-2001, 10:05 PM
I will play the game until my GB CD melts... then I'll buy a new one lol

Ill buy 2 or 3 cds and keep playing till my CD-ROM burns up then ill get a new one and some more cds and do it all over again.....;)

I'd play it until I finished it :D

08-03-2001, 04:52 AM
Hey Trigit,

i'd finish it a couple of times actually. just to train a bit before i slug it out in multiplayer.

but my guess is i'll do some heavy multiplayer with a friend the day it comes out.

08-03-2001, 06:22 AM
If it's what i expect i'm good for at least a year with it, a prolonged life if the ex-pack adds real depth to it.

08-03-2001, 06:27 AM
look at AOE2; that came out what, late '99 early 2000 ?
the community is still going ape over it and it's still in the Top 20 sales-lists world-wide. I reckon it must be one of the most succesful games of all-time.

GB will benefit from Episode 2 as well, I'm sure. We'll see an expansion-pack on Ep2-units too, no doubt.

Ya you forgot that BattleGrounds is going to the RTS of the Decade...

08-03-2001, 10:20 AM
I'm pretty sure I can beat it in a matter of days, depending on how much time I put into it. Afterwards though, it is all dependant on the MP action for me. The main reasons I personally buy games is to play on the Net.

08-03-2001, 10:29 AM
my main reason is for MP too, but i don't play on the net yet.

come to think of it, most games i play are multiplayer.

08-03-2001, 02:29 PM
Hmm, i like SP best, but i still play alot of MP too. I think they both should be great.

GB is not going to be the game of the decade.................................it's going to be the game of the CENTURY!!!!!!!!!!!! (hopefully)

08-05-2001, 03:28 AM
well if they have an exp pak it should last awhile

It might be my major game till AoM comes out. After that I will stay play it ... cause I still have to avange Mike with the wookiees because he always kill my Chewbacca in Rebellion :swear:

Tie Guy
08-05-2001, 01:59 PM
I'll play it after AOM comes out, cause i probably won't get that. But...after FFX comes out, there is no garuntee that i won't stop everthing else completely. I'm sure i'll pick it up again after that though.

08-05-2001, 02:04 PM
I think Battlegrounds will be a complete saga. There are SO MANY species in Star Wars to publish at least 3 vey good games.

Tie Guy
08-05-2001, 09:49 PM
Ther are plenty of species, but not enouh of them have enough units, and a larger part of them don't have a decent story to tell in campaign.

gone were the days when we were excited about GB

07-22-2002, 10:38 AM
i Played it right from the start

07-22-2002, 10:39 AM
And another one returns from the grave yard. :lol:

Was that Real War game ever any good? I like sudden strike, and to me that is the hardest and most realistic RTS I have everplayed, and I saw Real War the other day at Best Buy for cheap. I have heard some bad reviews, anyone know?

It's cheap now, isn't it?

07-23-2002, 03:55 AM
I think so...or hope so...my brother got Clone Campaigns (which is unfortunately useless without GB itself ;))
