Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Republic Heroes review
14 October 2009
Excerpt: If you're reading this review and you're thinking that maybe you'll buy Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Republic Heroes , I surely don't need to tell you that "Star Wars" can be absolutely thrilling. With lightsaber duels, space shootouts and fantastic alien planets, the universe that George Lucas created has all of the elements that writers will ever need to craft a science fiction fan's wet dream.
Excerpt: The woefully-titled Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes has clearly been created for young, male fans of the animated series, and not hardcore gamers. Does this mean it can get away with being crap? Of course not. There is no excuse. Developer Krome Studios can offer no justification for the awful graphics, horrible platforming and uninspired level design that Republic Heroes offers. The game is structured with the shortest of attention spans in mind.
Any Chance We Could Remove “Star Wars” From The Title?
12 October 2009
Conclusion: Concept: A lackluster game that plays up the annoying elements from the computer-animated series
Graphics: Outside of light texture work, the environments look nice. Sadly, the same cannot be said of the poorly animated characters
Sound: Migraine-inducing dialogue clashes against the excellent score
Playability: So functionally challenged it fills Star Wars fans’ minds with the worst possible thought: Lightsabers are not awesome
Entertainment: A slap in the face...
Summary: Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Republic Heroes is set between seasons 1 and 2 of the Clone Wars animated series and features playable heroes such as Skywalker, Obi-Wan, Mace Windu, Kit Fisto, and various clone troopers, giving you the possibility to team up with a friend in online co-op.
Summary: Fans of the TV series may find something to enjoy here, but the vast majority of people, including kids, will find the combat repetitive, the camera angles difficult and the platforming unrewarding. One to avoid.
Conclusion: The only good thing this game has going for it is its successful representation of the show through its visual presentation. The graphics suck though, so that kind of cancels itself out. The gameplay can be quite horrendous at times, especially the platforming elements, and while the lightsabre action can be fun initially, it gets old very quickly.
