Hi.
I'm planing to spend loads of cash for some new PC-games and i was thinking about buying Galactic Battlegrounds because I liked most Star Wars games. And I would really like to play those Clone Campaigns!
OK. Is it good?:kiadi: :atat:

I liked it. It's basically just a Star wars mod for AoE but it's done well and it's fun. And that's what matters right? :)

If you want more opinions on it you might want to ask here (http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=72). :)

Well, I have it, I just haven't installed it yet. But from what I've heard it is good--if you liked AoE.

hate to pick nits, but as a former AOKer... SWGB is a mod off of AOK and not AOE.... one is 3 years newer and much more advanced:cool: its quite well done... with LEC working with ES(the AOE and AOK devs) on it, it came out much better then a pure LEC prod...(thats a sad truth, but it is... lec just doesnt make great software anymore... not like DF and JK1)

I just got the game 2 days ago after lots of thinking .....yes all 2 seconds of it.....

I like it! but the bestest part of the game is when I made 2 AT-AT's the noise their guns made WAS JUST LIKE THE MOVIE a screaching sort of drawn out whine...then as they hit the wookie in the head i laughed MUAHAHAHAAHHA an evil laugh.......
oh sorry.....Its good ok take my word for it!

The scenario editor is sweet, too. I like to create around 100 Jar-jars vs. 50 emperors!

Staring at the box for a few minutes and playing the game are two different things. :D

I have had Galactic Battlegrounds since it came out and I can say that it is a pretty good game. If you are a fan of AOE/AOK then it is basically the exact same thing only with star wars stuff and air units. If you are a fan of RTS games, but somehow missed AOE/AOK then I would highly recommend it as it will be totally new and very cool to you. Hope I have been of some help.

I thought AOE was a very stupid game compare to Star Craft... but i love swgbg, i think its because i'm a starwars fan?

if you really wanna see an excellent review of the game, go to this link:

it was written by me and is over 1000 words long, it tells you almost all you need to know about the game!

Many people are still hooked to star craft after so long so it must be good. I have played both but IMHO i like AoK more because of the different civs u can get. i think i might go get Galactic Battle grounds now though.

Ok, As a Long time AOK Player (and AOE) I must say the game is good, but not as good as AOK. If you want hard-core game play and dont-stop-to-take-a-piss-becuse-youll-lose action, GET AOK!..... Mmm anyone know when AOM is comming out?

i guess all i'm saying is GB is good, but AOK's better -Period-
