So, has anyone played Galactic Battle Grounds? My computer is down, but I have a copy of the game, and am curious about it.

They basically took the Age of Empires II engine and added flying units. It is a good game. The graphics are a bit outdated, but it is more about the gameplay to me. There is an expansion pack that came out with the AOTC units and campaigns. I don't know if it still around, but there was a website called Galactic Battlegrounds Heaven (or something like that) where you could download additional user made maps, campaigns, senarios, and mods.

I haven't played Galactic Battlegrounds in a few years. I was hoping Empire At War would take it's place, but I'm having trouble getting into it.

I agree about game-play.

TA is still the best tactics game ever. But, Galactic Battle Grounds looks promising. (I want to set up a "no-win" scenario based on the Battle of Jabim from the comics.)
