I mean come on I know it's using the AGe of Kings engine. AOK/AOC IS one of the best RTS games I have ever played. It really starts bashing the Alpha state of the game. Unless they have a Beta as well. I know that AOK is more than 2 years ols now, but with the state of the art AOK has SWGB will be one of my favorite games. Here's the link.

The guy's SO uninformed! He says there's a 20-units limit!

And WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH 2D?

Methinks that guy didn't like AoK.

My question is: What is wrong with having a game that is very much like one of the best strategy games of all time? Is that bad? It seems to me like that would be a *good* point. :confused:

*sigh*

Maybe his beta version allowed only 20 units...

that would be one sorry beta version!!! and the only 3d rst game i like is homeworld, which doesn't fit this type of RTS, so going with a well established engine and using it to their advantage is good for LucasArts. Bout time a good SW RTS came out:D

Why do I have the slight suspect he didn't like AoK?

I think he meant to say "200", not "20".

Quote from article:

Also making an unwelcome return is the 20-unit limit, an artificial barrier that is unnecessary for most modern gaming machines.

Does this guy not realize that not everyone has a "modern gaming machine"? Some people still have 300 mhz and below - and they want to play the game just as much as anyone. This guy is blaming Lucasarts for making the game accessable to everyone. I'm thinking about writing him a scalding email. ;)

Well, if he REALLY meant 200, it's one BIG error. Didn't he revise his text before uploading it??

huh... I guess he fixed it.

i didn't see the # 20 in the preview (okay I went threw it quickly). I only saw the mention of 200 units limit.
