Despite its rough edges, Empire at War is a genuinely fun strategy-based Star Wars title with enough of George Lucasi vision in place to keep fans of both the game genre and film saga happy. Few things are more fun than creating a force that can hold its own and defend a border while a larger assault force is created in the background. And, of course, nothing beats pulling the Death Star along and using it to settle those pesky land battles by pulling the lever and outright destroying a planet. Both Petroglyph and Aspyr have done a good job, but the version needs work and there are definite bugs that need fixing. The fun is still there, but an update resolving the gameis issues would move the game into the must-buy category as opposed players might feel hesitant about plucking off the shelf at the Apple Store. That being said, I have an Imperial base to infiltrate and a space station to raid with my new Mon Calamari frigates, so may the Force be with you.
