In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

What do these ratings mean?

This game is extremly fun, except for the bugs. I can't believe they would lanch a game with so many bugs. Its bad, that you have to download a patch the first time you start it up; not only do I have to download a patch the day it came out, but the next day also. When you first start playing there are a lot of bugs and slow downs. The online was unplayable the first few days of the game being out, so that gets a big subtraction of points. The only reason I didn't give this game a higher rating is because:

1. The rebel campian sucks
2. The game is buggy
3. Online is glitchy and dropping happens a lot
4. Lots of slow downs, even on my high end PC
5. Land battles in conquest mode suck!!!

Don't get me wrong, I love this game; it is extremly fun. Be ready for disapointment when tring to play online. This game should have been delayed a few weeks.

There was one other thing that I noticed, even if you destroy the planet with the Death Star, you still have to kill all the ships in the sector. The game also doesn't have that many units ; but it makes up for that in strategy.

The game needs and takes TONS of strategy, I was supprised. I thought at first that the game was going to shallow and not have very much depth. I find myself thinking up strats and different ways to fight my campians.

I LOVE, LOVE! the different game types, they are awesome. It is like a whole different game when you are playing space battles outside of conquest; its like a normal RTS at that point. Also the game makes up for itself, because the land battles that don't take place in conquest are great.

All in all, this game is a must buy! The game has so many aspects and so much strategy that you can put into play.
