Your favourite Star Wars RTS - Poll!
 
There's been a few SW RTS titles out there, but which one cuts the crust with you?

I can't quite decide which of Rebellion and Force Commander.

I think I will go for Rebellion. It has less things that was alittle annoying. :)

SWGB>FoCom.

I've only played SWGB, so thats what I picked. (wow, I'm pretty late on this poll!)

I like force commander...

I've only played FC and SWGB so...

I just downloaded the demo to Force Commander. Very fun game, the controls are a bit strange but still very good. Also the camera is more complicated than Galactic Battlegrounds, but thats because it is in full 3D.

I like the effects in it too. The smoke effects look great, especially for that time.

Is there a multiplayer community for Force Commander? I'm thinking about buying it from the Lucasarts store when they start selling it again in Feburary and would like to know.

I don't know... I played a friend in FC 3 or 4 times... good times :)

I haven't heard of a community for Focom in ages. I think most people couldn't get over the controls.. :p

I had a lot of fun with that game - I'd get a whole load of artillery and just start shelling things from halfway across the map. It was awesome. :D

E@W.

Failing that GB. Its good and solid, with decent story lines, and inteesting easter eggs.

Rebellion. It's been a while since I played it but when I did I was a complete junky. I've played alot of RTS games but Rebellion was the only one that got me REALLY hooked.

Rebellion. No contest, IMO. It's Expanded Universe. The guys who made this game were obviously SW nerds who also liked strategy and tactics. I really dug the game's interesting take on turn-based vs. real-time. It has so much detail, so many ways to accomplish things. It's certainly not perfect and could use various overhauls/reworkings, but of all of the SW "RTS" games, it takes the cake. It has a scary learning curve though, that's for sure. This game is no C&C/Starcraft/AoE clone. It's more Master of Orion meets realtime...or something. It's plain different.

FoCom was kinda a wreck and foretold the future fall of LucasArts from being able to make good games. I followed the development of that one for years, watched it turn from a top-down 2D RTS into an "exciting" fully 3D version and then watched the awful final version bomb completely. The only redeeming quality of this game is its strange soundtrack. ;)

SWGB was just goofy. I haven't played it much because it reminded me too much of Age of Empires and I don't particularly like that series. Darth Vader running around some battlefield lightsabering folks was also too corny for me to deal with lol.

Empire at War is a combination of completely awful ground combat, interesting but extremely limited space combat, and a super simplistic strategic Rebellion-wannabe campaign. The game is only good for its multiplayer space combat, I'd say, because it is so easy to jump into (simple/effective/quick).

Force Commander is definitely my favorite.

It'll always be SWGB for me. I adored the easy to use map maker!
