Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Although there have been plenty of decent Star Wars games in the past, LucasArts have had a lot of trouble producing a top quality game based on the new prequels--but Republic Commando looks like it could change all that. Republic Commando puts you in a four man squad of elite clonetroopers, that act as a sort of SAS version of the standard stormtrooper-alikes seen in Episode II. It’s your job to order the squad about while engaging in a spot of first person shooting action as you go. In other words it’s Star Wars does Rainbow Six--the squad-based shooter being just about the only genre of game that hasn’t been Star Warsified up until now.

Surprisingly things seem to be turning out rather well with some decent graphics and an easy to use, if slightly perfunctory, squad control interface. The game also takes much inspiration from the GameCube’s Metroid Prime with an excellent helmet view that does a lot to immerse you in the game and convince you that you really are the sci-fi version of Andy McNab.

Perhaps the only problem evident at this stage is that the battles are noticeably smaller scale than the ones from the movie with rarely more than half a dozen enemies attacking at any one time, rather than the hundreds seen in the film. An online multiplayer mode should help to shore things up somewhat, although the artificial intelligence of the bad guys is good enough to ensure you can still have plenty of fun on your own. --David Jenkins

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised 12 Aug 2005
I was bought this game as a present and when i saw it in my hands i was a bit disappointed.
After playing it for about an hour i realised what a really clever game this is and i was hooked.
I got this and Doom 3 at the same time and played this all the way through. It has great pick up and play appeal - perfect for a quick 30 minute session before work.
The character voicing is great and the commandos dont seem to repeat the speech patterns - this i find a big plus as there is nothing more annoying than hearing the same speech over and over. A problem with most footie games.
It is a game where you can use your head as you can direct the other 3 commandos to undertake tasks ie. Sniper cover or plant explosives. This means you have to be really be aware of your surroundings and squad.
There are so many great things about this game including the Graphics, but my favourite has to be the sound effects and speech.
If you are a Star Wars fan you probably have already got this, if not, definately consider it.
If you are not a Star War fan, still consider this as it is a great Squad based FPS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game 18 April 2005
I bought republic commando on the basis that i am not a huge star wars fan and i was looking for something different. This game brings alot to the table to compete with the tactical FPS games around. I would say that it does not incorperate too man aspects of the command based FPS game but it does for fill enough to make it a good game. From the Ash soundtrack to the foley aspects of the character movement this game makes you feel as if you were right in their i often lost myself with headphones on for hours. This game includes multiple weapons from an infinate lazer pistol to a enemy rocket turret. A feature that i found really brings into concept the amout on thought gone into the game is you melee attack. If for instance you are armed with a rifle then your character in close combat can use his retracting blade from his fist. Often this brings your enemy to his knees and covers your visor in their insides which is then removed by a laser on ur suit. I would say that this is defenatly worth purchasing even if you like the star wars films or not. This game has alot of detail and will give even the most experienced gamer a good time.
Hope this has helped you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good shooter with Star Wars trappings. 15 Mar 2005
By Ian Tapley VINE VOICE
THE STORY:
An elite team of Clone Commandos fight in three extensive engagements during the Clone Wars. They participate in the Battle of Geonosis (at the end of Episode II), attempt to recover a ghost ship (a year into the Clone Wars) and finally aid the Wookiee resistance in fighting the Confederacy on Kashyyyk (set within the events of Episode III).
WHAT'S GOOD:
All other considerations aside, this is a good first-person shooter, with atmospheric environments and intensive gameplay. Added to this is the wonder of your squad. You can instantly give them orders (to set up sniping positions or man a turret), choosing what to do based on tactical considerations, giving a more thought-orientated level to the gameplay. Also, the squad's artificial intelligence is exceptional and, more often than not, you'll find that the squad is better than you are! The graphics are of a very high quality, making the most of the Xbox's capabilities and the controls are easy to master (particularly if you've got 'Halo' experience). A few other assorted good points are the humour generated by your squad's various characters, the chance to be a clone baby (using the fire button to wiggle your chubby little arms!), the very realistically created night-vision mode, an interesting approach to the weapons (your rifle, sniper and grenade launcher are all the same gun, with you pulling off or attatching bits to suit), an ending that (although anticlimatic in terms of the game) really gets you in the mood for seeing 'Revenge Of The Sith', an appearance by the new villain General Grievous (and his double-hard Droid bodyguards) and finally, Wookiees. Lots of Wookiees.

4.0 out of 5 stars Halo meets Rainbow 6! 16 Mar 2005
By A Customer
It's not quite as pretty as Halo 2 (but still very good: just different) or as complex as Rainbow 6... but it captures all the intensity of the former with the knowledge that you just can't survive without your squad!
The squad commands are so simple and yet make SUCH a difference to your chances of victory.
Team AI is great and they can even revive each other.
Picture this: I'm approaching the main door into the enemy base. We spot a SBD (super battle droid) and I order one man to take up a sniper position while another goes to a grenadier spot.
They start firing only to find 2 turrets high up on the walls. I take out the turrets and move around the local cover and find a whole squad of droids + another SBD coming my way.
I get through them and round the corner but find I'm taking fire from 2 more SBDs + other "grunts".
I notice that my sniper is down and I recall everyone else from their spots to follow me (with ONE button press...) while chucking a grenade into the fray.
One SBD goes down and I just manage to order my men to concentrate fire on the other before I am incapacitated.
As I lie on the floor I look up at the SBD with blurred vision. I could order them to revive me right now but risk losing my 2 remaining men as they are now low on health too.
I wait a few crucial seconds until I see the SBD go down then give the order to revive.
After the initial disorientation, I'm back in the action to mop up the remaining droids.
We pause for breath and a health refill... and realise we're still only partway through the first mission!!!
There are numerous other situations like this: it may be linear but the action makes it feel like it isn't.
