Great Game, but it needs it's expansions and one bug fix.

I’ve been playing this game for years and I LOVE IT, but it would be great if the "Forces of Corruption”, “Republic at War”, and “Thrawn’s Revenge” expansion packs were added to the Mac version on the App Store. The App Store version has only one major bug and that is the internet connection on local multiplayer between devices. The game will quit unexpectedly in the middle of a local multiplayer online Skirmish or Galactic Conquest more than half the time and sometimes in the chat local chat room we can’t even join each others’ devices to a game no matter what Mac we use. Other than that, THIS IS STILL MY FAVORITE GAME AND I REALLY HOPE FOR AT LEAST A BUG FIXING UPDATE!

P.S. I recommend this game for ALL strategy game fans and Star Wars fans! I DEFINITLY THINK IT AND ANY FUTURE EXPANSIONS/EXPANSION PACKS ARE WORTH PURCHASING!!!

Legendary star wars game!

Do you like star wars? Do you like strategy? Do you enjoy blowing everything up in space, then going down to the planet and blowing everything up there?
Boy do we have a game for you then! Think of any vehicle, hero, or spaceship in star wars. Then imagine them shooting, slicing, and fighting each other (don't get me wrong though it isn’t a violent game)! It run’s beautifully, even for it’s age, the campaign fits in with the story of the movies. If you like star wars, strategey, rts, or all three, get this game. it should be worth more than it is. If Lucasarts comes back to games like this and KOTOR, I would be so happy.

Oh, and by the way, don’t try on a Retina MacBook Pro: Mouse clicks do not land where the mouse pointer is but somewhere else sometimes.

Would be better with DLC

Pretty good, but would be better with DLC. One thing to keep in mind is that you can’t really sandbox as the rebels on the largest map. The game ends after the death star is built (and possibly destroyed), so the clock is ticking. Thus, in the largest campaign, you can’t ever get more than a few of the highest end units, the game ends too soon. This is a little rough for those of us who like to take our time in a long campaign.

One minor annoyance, saving the game takes ages (even with an SSD and a fast computer), and the thing auto-saves before every battle. Expect a lot of 10 second pauses because of this, they add up to mild annoyance. Also, some of the loading is pretty slow. Again, this is true even with a fast SSD, so it basically just a bug, no reason it should take so long.

Solid game, with some rough edges.
