Star Wars Republic Commando
NEEDS A SEQUEL!!!!!!!!
When I first saw the game, I was amazed. It looked like a great squad shooter that would top my list. And that is what it was. I love the "Recall and Revive" feature. Whenever you die, your squad can heal you. For an original xbox game, the graphics are great. The storyline is fantastic, and I despise Star Wars! The characters are great! Pretty much, everything is great. There are few bad things. The campaign should have been longer. There were three stages, Genosis, Ghost Ship, and I forget the third, Naboo maybe? By the way, Ghost Ship made the game, everything you could ask for in a level was there. I was scared at some points. The other bad thing is that you are left with a cliffhanger (I won't spoil it) and there should be a sequel. There are like 50 Star Wars episodes and they can't make two of their best product? I hope Lucas Arts will find it in their hearts to make a sequel and fill the missing gap in the Star Wars universe.
One of the best xbox shooters
Star Wars Republic Commando takes you into the role of a commando in delta squad taking place over 3 worlds, Geonosis, a Star Destroyer, and Kashyyyk The game has stunning graphics for its time along with amazing sound. The storyline of the game is probably the best it can offer with amazing depth and story. You HUD is very well equipped telling the status of you squad and telling you where to go if you get lost. You can heal your squad if they are down or order them to heal you when you die so you can always just come back to life. The game has 3 basic starter weapons as you go and you can pick up weapons from different species. The game takes you through many different places on each map making the replay value very high. Although the storyline is amazing the multiplayer is average. The multiplayer is no where close to halo but still adds some fun to the game. If you own an xbox and are a shooter fan I highly recommended this game to you.
one of the best star wars games of all time.
going into republic commando, i expected a mundayne story fueled by horrible gameplay mechanics. but, as it turns out this is far from horrible. thsi just simply is an amazing star wars game, and an excellent fps altogether. you play as a republic commando(duh!) who is the commander of his squad. unlike many other star wars games in the past this one focuses on the milatary side of the clone wars. as you play through the campaign you cant help but notice that this borrows from other titles, but they put these traits to good use. i found republic commando to be a mix of halo,and metroid prime. the gunplay is very similar to halo while the exploration and suspense is like that of metroid prime. there is a huge variety of weapons never seen in the star wars universe before. when it comes to graphics, rp has the look and feel of an early 360 game. its nice to see places like geonosis in perfect detail. this game had so much success that it spawned a series of books(which are actually pretty good). which leads me to wonder, why havent they made any sequels? next to knights of the old republic, this is the best star wars game of all time. its so different from every other star wars game, with its engaging story, awesome gameplay, and so much replay value, i have just one complaint, i want a sequel! they need to stop worrying about the disaster of the force unleashed 2 and make an empirial commando and a battlefront 3(battlefront is 3rd best star wars game ever). other than the fact that the ai is pretty stiff at times and your teammates are dumb and will shoot you if you accidentaly shoot one of your guys, this gets a solid score of 9.5
Attack of the Clones!
Star Wars: Republic Commando is a excellent game. Now I'll admit I'm a mega star wars fan, but dis-regardless this is a good game. First off your not a a jedi, or some guy out to save the universe, your a commando, still special, but essentially a rank & file trooper. Your Boss(RC-1138), leader of Delta Squad, one of the best squads in the Grand Army of the Republic. Your squad consists of Fixer(RC-1140), Sev(RC-1207), and Scorch(RC-1262), slicer, sniper, demolition respectively. The storyline is awesome, with three completely different locales. Now down to gameplay. Commanding your squad is smooth as butter. The weapons are nice, and switching is as easy as a single button push. The AI is strong, but not the best in the business. Graphics aren't amazing, but not bad. The sounds are great, and the music is amazing. Overall, Good Game, Must Buy, You.
A Shooter worthy of giving Halo a run for it's money...
After playing through the first two Halo games and hearing this had so much in common with them, I thought this was just going to be a common "Halo Rip-off." That however is not the case, Republic Commando delivers. The story basically consists of you taking the part as the leader of an elite squad of "Republic Commandos," special troops sent to do the Clone Army's dirty work. The controls are spot-on, traditional fare of any good Shooter. Graphically, this game is quite impressive, it looks good while running as smooth as a buttered pig... Soundwise, the game is great, but would be even more so cranked up, the action is quite intense, making perfect material for a surround-sound system. The voice acting (fortunately) masks most of the corny dialogue (i.e. "Let's send those Droids to the trash compactors.") I would recommend anyone who is looking for a fresh, fun shooter to try this, it's not at all a traditional "Halo Rip-Off."
Wow... this game is unbelievably awesome. I have had an original Xbox for a long time and I remembered getting this game and getting stuck on a level and then putting it back down. I picked it up again and I soon became so addicted it was the only thing I could even do for DAYS untill I beat it. IT IS THAT GOOD! One of the best FPS's I've ever played and this is coming from a hardcore Halo fan. The story is original and very interesting and keeps you wanting more up into the very end... and even after that I though, "Wow!! Such a great ending... BUT WHERE IS THE SECOND GAME!" It all fits just sooooo perfectally. The characters on your team are more that belivable and feel like your working with a bunch of hard core commands with their own things that make them tick and own sense of humor with had me cracking up! The voice acting is the best in the buisness and the weapons help you to continually find new ways to kill your enemies. AND this game incorparaties stratagy better than any game EVER. If you choose to go in guns-a-blazin you will soon meet your early death because if you don't use your team mates then you are pretty much screwed. But, if your smart, then you can beat it on whatever difficulty fits your skill level and still feel challenged. Imagine Ghost Recon in star wars but with a 10 times better everything. Just talking about it makes me want to play this game right now. I can't stress it enough... If you are a fan of STAR WARS, FPS's, Strategy, or you just want to play one of the best games ever... then you need to get this game.
Definitly the best Star Wars game out there. Graphics were great for xbox and so was the sound. Unfortunately when i bought my 360 I looked at the list of original xbox games that would work on the xbox and sadly it was not there. Really needing the cash to buy the new system I reluctantly sold my game. Now that the game is compatible, I cant find a good/ new copy without paying top dollar. Am I the only one that when playin halo or any other fps really wishes I had that little assasins creed like blade from this game? It was just plain cool. Buy this game!
Great Star Wars game!
This game is truly one of the best Star Wars games ever. The gameplay is great, weapons are cool, characters were awsome and the story is very well done. They have the actor who plays Jango Fett do the voice of the main character and has a cool music video in the extras. The game is great for all Star Wars fans because it gives you a look into the Clone Wars through the clone's eyes. The enemies are challenging and actually take some tactical skill to take them down or fend them off depending on the mission. Too bad that didnt make a second one.
Best Star Wars Game EVAR!!!
I was hooked on this game the moment I saw the case. this game played with a headset will give you chills. The best part of this game was the beginning where you go through 38's training "montage". The multiplayer was very addicting and competitive. The RC multi got me hooked on multiplayer on any game (exept COD) This game needs a sequel BADLY. What happens to Sev Lucasarts?????
In this game, you play as an elite clone commando in the timeline between Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith. But you're not alone. You are in command of 3 other commandos, who can be given simple orders with the d-pad. As for weapons, you basically just get whatever guns you can. I don't know the specifics. The only weapon you always have for sure, is a blade that pops out from your glove. The coolest thing about this game is that you see from an inside-the-helmet perspective. You heal at bacta stations throughout the levels. Your teammates can be ordered to heal at the stations too, which is good because they can die. Other commands you can give them include, planting explosives, and assuming various attack positions. The graphics in this game are great, considering it's an original Xbox title. The controls are very complex, so it takes a while for this game to get really fun, but it's worth the wait. The only real downside is the offline multiplayer. It only allows 2 players and you don't command a squad. This game is worth checking out, if only for the Campaign mode. If you like it, there's a really great book series by Karen Traviss that's based on the game. I think there's about 4 books in the series.
