This game is fun. It is a must for all Star Wars/Age of Empires/Empire Earth/Rise of Nations fans. Even if you don't do star wars, the science fiction spaceships/characters/equipment is fascinating. The graphics are excellent, just like Age of Empires 2 Gold. The music sounds fantastic - music clips from Star Wars Episodes 1,2,4,5, and 6 incuding Duel of the Fates, Across the Stars, The haunting Emperor/Darth Sidious Theme, The Empire March/Darth Vader's theme, and much more. These add a great touch to the game. The buildings and units are exceptional, the civilizations are great, and the power ups are not lacking. It has campaigns, which are do-able and enjoyable in easy mode, but more difficult in hard mode. It has random maps, death matches among other standard games that are very challenging even in easy mode. I have not won a random map yet, but I haven't taken advantage of all the power-ups and strategies. The fact that the game is substantially more challenging than Age of Empires is what makes it all the better because of the challenge it provides. Empire Earth - Art of Conquest has a good Space age, but this game is alot better and has much more of a variety. There are 4-5 "epochs" each allowing you to build more advanced ships, artillery, and units. It seems like it is never ending. It may be overwhelming to new RTS game users, but if you are even just OK at playing Age of Empires 2 Gold (same engine/gameplay), or Empire Earth, and/or Rise of Nations, this game will be a pleasant addition and challenge to your game repertoire. This game may bore those who prefer Rome-Total War, Age of Empires 3, or Empire Earth 2, due to it's simplicity. I only have a 1 GHz, so it works fine for me. Depends on your taste. So far, the only glitch I noticed is at times, the music will cut out for a split second and then resume, especially if there are a lot of units on the screen battling, but that's OK. I only had the game for 4 days, and I don't see myself getting bored with it any time soon.
