Star Wars Republic Commando is a squad-based first person shooter that lets you explore the elite world of the Star Wars military. Leading a 4-man squad of Republic Commandos, your missions take you deep behind enemy lines on over 14 intense and challenging levels through three different campaigns where you will face more than ten brutal enemies. You'll have more than a dozen deadly weapons at your disposal, but none more lethal than your squad. What makes the squad in Star Wars Republic Commando so unique is the game's innovative 'One Touch Squad Control' system that allows you to engage your squad with just one button.
RC is the most serious approach to the one of the most interesting factions from the Star Wars saga: The Clone Army.
The game itself depicts a lot of story that was not shown on Episode 2 nor Episode 3.
If you enjoyed the cartoon network series, the comics or just the Episode 2 and 3 clone story, then this is the game for you.
As a linear shooter, RC has much of what made Brothers in Arms a sales success. You have to give orders, make your way through and plan your moves.
The game, though excellent on what it has to offer, has two major flaws:
1- It's gameplay is too brief. Good things can't last they say, and this game confirms it.
2- It's limited possibilities. By the time RC came out, a lot of shooters offered much more than just firing.
A lot of fans expected a sequel, expansion or even mod tools, but none of these were given by lucasarts. Shame on them.
