I would like to start this review off with a disclosure. I played Star Wars: Imperial Assault with some other members of the Need To Consume team just before Christmas, but we only managed the tutorial mission with the basic rules. I would have loved to review Star Wars: Imperial Assault in a more in-depth method but frankly there is so much to the game it could quite easily end up around three thousand words and perhaps not the most enthralling of reads for you. I am hoping that we can keep revisiting the game and even take a look at each of the thirty odd missions in game and perhaps form a narrative of the characters involved.
The box for Star Wars: Imperial Assault is a hefty one and once you open it, it is clear to see why. There is a plethora of items inside which help form the various missions and shape the various characters you can play as. A simple way to look at the game, according to some, is that this is pretty much Descent with some tweaks and a Star Wars skin There are two modes to play the game: Skirmish (for 2 players) or Campaign (2-5 players). We started with the tutorial for campaign mode and hence that is what the main focus of my review will be.
