Unit analysis

i got this from mrfixitonline.com. apparently, the wookies have the best upgrades, but here goes an excerpt i borrowed which should give you guys ideas about strenghts and weaknesses of each. this is subject to change however.




Here is a quick run through on the six civs and what techs they are strong in at the present time. Since the game is not on the shelves yet this information is subject to change at the discrestion of LucasArts:


Troops Mechs Sea Air Jedi
Rebel Alliance 2 5 4 1 3
Galactic Empire 2 1 5 4 3
Trade Federation 3 1 2 5 4
Royal Naboo 4 5 2 1 3
Gungan 3 2 1 4 5
Wookie 1 3 4 2 5

(1= very good , 5 = not so good)

Yes, but i wonder why the alliance has such bad mechs.
Also, the wookies have pretty good air units, i wonder wht they're like.

It looks as if the Naboo and the Empire make quite a team. They cancel each others weaknesses out.

the premise of the AOK game (and no doubt also of GB) is that no combo is totally perfect. there's always (always !!) some form of counter. and that makes for long, long forums and big, big strategy sites and guides.

with 6 civs and 14 environments with 200-300 units, the strat. guide is bound to be big. i never got the AoE strat guide, so i can't compare them...

Yeah, but what do the environments really have to do with a srategy guide. They could have a map or something, but they should a play relatively similar.

I wonder how many missions there will be for each civ.

Hello Master Yoda.

I don't know about srategy guides, but the biggest instruction manual i've ever seen belongs to Rebellion. That thing is heavy.

i don't know, i've never played rebellion but people told me to not get it. depends, if you have money to burn, go out and get it. but if you want to make a safe bet, get starcraft or AoK, those are better games......

Rebellion is cool if you like micro managing and no flashy graphics. All the ground battles happen real quick and the space battles are pretty bad ( I usually just have the comp. fight it for me). Playing a game usually takes a lot longing then I would like to play the game for but I don't regret buying it.
I liked the poster it came with showing all the ships! The book is THE thickest book for any SW game yet (I think)

Rebellion is worth to buy if you like to dig into your games. it's as simple as that.
there's no demo that i know of, but no short look would do it really justice.

I agree, although I didn't like the 1.0b patch, the Goths are too strong.

And I prefer White Snow. Sorry, I know this is off topic but I had to realease my ... *rage * : :

AoE is a great solid game (got a lot of awards in 1999) and was one of the all round best games of 1999. You won't make a mistake if you buy it.

But if you are really into strategy and something original, while waiting for Battlegrounds, i recommend Shogun: Totalwar. The new warlord edition will be out the 7th of august (the original award winning game of 2000 + an expansion pack together).

It's half turn based (Strategy map) , half real Time (Tactical Battle grounds). The real time battle engine is incredible (up to 3840 units on the battlefield at the same time).

It's based in medieval japan (One japanese "samurai" clan campaign and one Mongol invading japan campaign + historical battles etc...)

Kuma, do you think Shogun handles those unit-amounts well ?
maybe it could bring some tips to the developers...
