Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes Review
10 January 2010
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: A third-person action game, Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes is based on the CGI 'toon that just started its second season on Cartoon Network, with the same great voice cast and recognizable sound effects. But unlike the show, which is clearly designed to be for Star Wars fans of all ages, this game is clearly aimed more at its younger viewers, despite the T-rating.
Pros: Is faithful to the show., Fun co-op., Paul Jr. will love it.
Cons: Is too easy for older gamers., And too shallow., Clearly, The Force isn't with the camera.
Summary: You wouldn't think that mimicking the Lego platformers would be all that difficult. Few gaming franchises have been so high profile over the past four years, with developer Traveller's Tales using the colorful blocks to playfully recreate all six Star Wars movies, the original Indiana Jones trilogy, and nearly 75 years of Batman comics. So there really is no excuse for such a lame rip-off as Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes.
Pros: Accurately recreates the characters, settings, and visual style of the TV series
Cons: Awkward, unresponsive controls, Confusing level design and art, Terrible camera angles, Repetitive mission combat and puzzles
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.
Summary: Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes není vyloženě špatnou hrou, ale doplácí na slabý příběh, otřesné vizuální zpracování a hlavně velmi nepřátelskou kameru, která z nejrůznějších situací udělá doslova peklo. Pokud jste fanoušek seriálu, asi si hru koupíte, ale pokud jím nejste, rozhodně se tomuto Star Wars titulu vyhněte jako čert kříže. Spálíte se totiž jen o čistou komerci. Nic víc ani míň Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes není.
