Review : Star Wars : Republic Commando for Xbox
7 March 2006
Conclusion: This game is so good that it make me wonder what Star Wars will be like when George Lucas retires and hands it off to a new generation of creative artists. This game is not just for nerd it kick large amounts of alien ass for the honor of the Senate and the security of the Galactic Republic. So far there is no sign of Jar-jar Binks and I gave my squad order to kill him on sight.
Excerpt: In recent years, it seems that LucasArts has tried their hardest to augment the release of the movies with games that either bring the player into the world of the movies or tell another part of the story. Such is the case with Republic Commando . As a part of the clone soldier program, Jango Fett initiated a Commando program, where the clones were given advanced, team-based training for special missions.
Pros: Nice strategic elements, Excellent audio, Great looking graphics and level design, Online and multiplayer modes
Cons: Short story mode, AI is not always consistent
Summary: Like Star Wars? Like blowing stuff up? Like shooting stuff up? If you answered yes to all of these, you definitely need to give Republic Commando a shot. Rent this title before you buy to see if you would really like it, but seriously it is an extremely solid title. Besides the lackluster multiplayer, the sound, visuals, mechanics, and gameplay are all very solid and exceed well over expectations in some cases.
Pros: Nice intense campaign
Cons: Multiplayer lacks, not enough to do in the title
Excerpt: Something strange is going on here. Historically, videogames based on the Star Wars franchise are supposed to be mediocre at best – they generally were before Knights of The Old Republic and Battlefront were released, anyway. A decent trifecta of titles was always going to be a definite possibility when LucasArts announced Star Wars: Republic Commando for the Xbox way back in the summer of 2003, and if atmosphere was enough to make a game great, the opening sequences of...
Excerpt: The releases of the first two episodes in the Star Wars movies prequel trilogy seem to have been something of a catalyst for the production of games at LucasArts. The franchise guardians have already made quite a stir with both their MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies and action RPGs Knights of the Old Republic I and II. This time they delve into the now well established genre of squad-based First Person Shooter with Star Wars: Republic Commando on PC and Xbox.
Summary: The developers at LucasArts have produced
another outstanding Star Wars with the release of Republic Commando for the Xbox.
This tactical shooter places you in command of an elite group of Clone Troopers
as you lead them battle through a variety of environments and face an onslaught
of enemies. During each mission, you control the actions of your 3 other
comrades and perform a variety of operations ranging from combat to explosives
detonation and more.
Excerpt: Of course, in order to actually finish each campaign, you will have to have completed your objectives, so don’t worry about command’s warnings about how you are not welcome if you fail. The missions are laid out so that in order to go on to the next one, you have to succeed. Dying, on the other hand, normally leads to failure, and is probably preferable to your character and your squad mates than trying to return disgraced.
Excerpt: Just about every Star Wars game that comes down the pipe these days has something to do with Jedi: Jedi fighting with lightsabers, Jedi piloting star fighters and, occasionally, Jedi pitted against god-awful control schemes and inexplicably placed bottomless pits. But, Star Wars: Republic Commando takes a completely different approach.
Excerpt: Saying you had played a good Star Wars game used to be something that you'd never hear. This has changed drastically in the last couple years with games like Knights of the Old Republic being released. Well you can add another game to the great SW game pile. Republic Commando has arrived.
Excerpt: If there is one thing any gamer will tell you, it’s that there are no good Star Wars games out there. Or at least, this was the case up until BioWare’s surprise hit Knights of the Old Republic. And now, just to shake things up a bit, LucasArts has decided we need another great Star Wars game, and they gave it to us in the form of Star Wars: Republic Commando. The game is simple, fun, and has plenty of features to set it apart from its squad-based shooter brethren.
