    Star Wars: Gallactic Battlegrounds

    Visuals/Sound

    Beginning with the days of X-Wing, LucasArts's games have been know for their superb use of Star Wars music. Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds continues this tradition with musical stings from Episode I as well as the three original motion pictures. While you can tell that the budget for this title wasn't large enough to include bringing back Liam Neeson as Qui-Con Jinn, but the voice acting is good nonetheless. The character of Qui-Con Jinn guides you through the tutorial campaign in which you command the Wookiees against the Trade Federation.

    Unfortunately, the combat experience can be somewhat less than stellar. Everything burns with the same fire animation and the sound of a blaster going off gets a little tiring by the end of a scenario. Although buildings and units are drawn in very high-resolution, they are all rough around the edges, not exactly fitting into their surroundings. I believe that the visuals of Age of Empires II were more polished than they are in Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds.
