Well, yes it is a Star Wars game, but the development house "Petroglyph" is made up largely of the old Westwood RTS team who have been know to put out a decent game or two in their time.
Will the release of "Empire at War" usher in a new era of Star Wars strategy games? The ones released so far have all met with mixed reviews.
We'll get our first hands-on taster of "Empire At War" on January 18 when the demo is released. Keep your eye on the official site for more details and download locations.
The full game is due out on February 16.
