Just wondering,

Has anybody here ever tried SW Rebellion? If you have, what did you think of it? (game, storyline, realistic, etc.?)

Some comments on your post:

1. Yes, I like Rebellion. I think its OK but definitly should of been worked on more before being "shoved out the door."

2. Gameplay is excellent! That is, to somebody who loves MicroManagment. However, I DON'T.

3. Graphics are horrible! I could of designed a better engine (at the company i work at http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/smile.gif) than what LucasArts came up with! Really, I wonder if they even worked on it, or maybe they used the old one from the original "Secret of Monkey Island."

4. Interface! Great!

I love the Imperial Protocol droid. He makes fun of you the whole time. The only major complain other than the tactical engine, was the "unrealistic" start. The Empire has no where near the resources and military and political power it had at that point. Basically, you start from scratch. And no Mara Jade.

What was wrong with the tactical engine, Nute?

Little Vader, I simply cannot believe it! This time I have taken the time to go back and will now quote verbatim:

Are we to understand that in just less than three weeks you've gone from not being able to spell marquee, let alone code one to developing 3D engines?! Please. Have a little respect for our collective intelligence.

What are you going to come up with next? That you're Bill Friggin' Gates?!

Here's the answer to your question, BatMan:

1. I am the manager of QuinTek, a computer software developer.

2. Our company does not specialize in HTML code, internet software, or anything else like that.

3. My employees know a lot more about technology and the internet than I do. My job is basically to be the idiot, pointy-haired boss http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/smile.gif.

The tactical part was very bad looking. The ships fire very infrequently, rarely follow orders, and there's only one fighter shaped blob to pretend it's a squadron. And, the Death Star never jumps into hyperspace if you order it to withdraw. It just sits there for ten minutes and then the battle end window comes up and you're back at the strategic part.

In that case, Nute, would you consider it a good game? How about for $30 Canadian- do you think it would be worth it?

I'd get it. It's a challenge and it's addictive. For $30, that's a deal. I almost paid $50 American, but got it for Christmas instead.
Something I did within a couple of weeks, was get modified DAT files to have a reasonable military and resource base on the Imperial side to make it more "real".

One week shy of a month later, and desperate attempts nearly every day.
