This is a decent game. Everyone who is knocking it is too old. It's clearly designed for youth who are fans of the cartoon. My young daughter really enjoys playing co-op together. It's basically like playing through a story arc of the Clone Wars cartoon with most major characters at least making a cameo appearance. You play as a variety of characters throughout the game, both clones and jedi vs. the shows primary villians - especially lots and lots and lots and lots of droid soldiers. That's pretty much like the show though, so no surprise there. You don't go around killing people like in The Force Unleashed, only droids.

Update: Beat the game on normal difficulty co-op with my younger daughter. Total time was about 11 hours, but we got less than half of the achievements, in game unlocks, etc. Overall, it's not that bad of a game.
If you are an adult fan of the Clone Wars cartoon, I recommend setting the difficulty to Jedi from the start to increase the challenge somewhat. Being designed for youths, you immediately continue with an unlimited number of lives from the exact spot you died while playing (only lose some points for buying unlocks), so there isn't much to worry about like getting stuck later in the game.

Additionally, we played co-op with X360 controllers, it's likely more comfortable playing this type of game that way than on a keyboard.

I wouldn't say that this game was a complete piece of crap and it was obviously designed with controllers in mind not keyboards, but lets just say younger children will get more out of this than anyone above the age of 13.

I bought this to play in multiplayer with my 5 year old....she loves it..for kids who love watching the clone wars cartoon, it has all the main characters. Most importantly they can play as Ahsoka!
Controls are easy for her to use and she loves the style of the game. Its just like the cartoon. Very easy for her to navigate the screen and gameplay is simple.
If your looking for something more complex then dont buy this. If your looking for a game for a child between 5-7 then this is ideal.

Awful.

Despite being a fan of the Star Wars franchise, I never got around to watching The Clone Wars. I certainly appreciate its art style, though, and this game is faithful to it. That's the only good thing about the game, and even then it's rather subjective – some people might not enjoy its looks.

The story is the same for every piece of Star Wars material, which is to say, disposable at best.

As for characters... Anakin Skywalker's annoying padawan calling him "Skyguy" every five minutes during the dreadful cutscenes would be enough to put me off. But I persevered, as part of my quest to beat all of my Games For Windows Live titles before that system is shut down (possibly rendering them unplayable forever).

Speaking of cutscenes, they are often glitched and abruptly interrupted for no reason.

The gameplay is very, very dull. The combat is boring, especially when you're playing the role of Republic soldiers (in other words, the shooting sections). And even in the hardest difficulty setting, if you "die", you'll just respawn in the same area, without any limits. Perhaps most baffling, though, is the fact that you will face the same boss THREE times. He always uses the same attacks, and you'll always use the same method to beat him.

There are occasional "puzzles" that were clearly designed with four-year old children in mind. On top of that, Master Yoda will always show up to tell you what to do next or how to play. Like a constant tutorial throughout the game.

It also has some of the worst platforming sections I have ever gone through... and it has a lot of them. The controls are very imprecise, even when playing with a gamepad. Levels are poorly designed, and the fixed camera angles only makes matters worse. This means you'll be falling to your "death" more often than not when jumping around... but hey, at least there's that immediate respawn, right?

It came with the Star Wars collection, so I tried it out. I like the animation, but the game play could be better. It is awkward to play with a keyboard so I recommend playing with a controller or just buy it on Xbox 360. It is longer than most Star Wars games I've played, but it gets repetitive. Shoot (clone), slash (Jedi), and repeat. I would buy it if you weren't looking for a challenge or perhaps for your kid. I wouldn't pay full price for it though. Wait for a sale or just try it out if you buy the Star Wars collection like I did.

I cleared this game in 12 h. This game was so-so for me.
There are two difficulties, Padawan & Master. I played padawan level, but sometimes it was difficult.
If you like clone wars TV stories, and if you want to battle like that movies, this game is perhaps good for you.(especially for children)
I am not children but I enjoyed it because I love star wars. You can play some of jedies and troopers. And battle syles were interesting. You can destroy many droids. But Sith vs jedi are only two times.

And I recommend that you play this on game hardwere. It seems that this game has many troubles when you play on pc.
I have problems(it was slow motions on Win 7 laptop). And it didn't work on Win 8, surface pro 2.
I think it is better for you to buy xbox or some other game soft. If you have very strong pc specs, perhaps you don't have to worry. But if not, I think xbox, DS or other consoles are better than pc.

Anyway, I like battle syles in this game. If you have some intrests, I recommend you to buy it when it's sale.

Well this is just like Pacman/Super Maria in a Starwars suit. It is just 3rd person view and the camera doesnt follow at all. So if you want to walk forward you have te press left and jump over deep cliffs for no reason at. So this is a game only for the youngest of players among us. They will enjoy it that is for sure.

It is about bunny hopping and constantly breaks in the game where the tutorial just annoys the crap out of you. The music is from the Starwars series Clone Wars. The game looks like it was directly taken from the famous and most beautifully made animation series of Starwars the Clone Wars. So that is good. Even the sounds are very impressive. Straight from the series and moveis.

So if you don't mind jumping from spot to spot in this game and have the time or energy to "learn" the illogical controls then go for it. If not if you like logical first person controls or at least a camera just automatically follow you in 3rd person view just wait and save some precious money for the Battlefront 3 that will be coming soon to the gaming world.

The show is decent. This game however, far from that. The platforming is done horribly, combat is somehow both mindless and unfun, and almost every other word that came from this game gave my backhand an itch, one that could only be scratched if it was applied on the face of the speaker.

This game only has one redeeming factor, its assets. Even then, it seems a bit outdated. Hopefully someone will make use of them and bring them to Gmod or SFM.

Quite possibly the most painful platformer I have ever played. Republic Heroes holds true to the cartoon series and offers a decent story with all the major characters, but the controls are horrendous--and I mean that in the absolute worst way possible. The camera angles, aiming, direction controls all seem to work against where you want to actually go. On the bright side, you get to play a lot of different characters, but unfortunately they don't offer any unique moves; it's all the same gameplay, just a different face. Unfortunately, all the negatives completely overpower any positives this game has to offer. Stay away....stay very far away.

The art and graphics are amazing, looks really crisp and very exciting at first glance. Really keeps in the spirit of the TV show.

Then theres the gameplay control...if anything can ruin a game, its the horrid control abilities and clumsy response. To be fair, I didnt try my gamepad controller, but most game systems still make an effort to produce good keyboard/mouses combination controls. This was not the case here. Literally no mouse contol options, the bindings are clumsy and frustrating to work with.

Of course, Windows LIVE is alone would be a reason to give this game a negative review.

I paid $10.....I should have been PAID $10 to try this piece of crap.

Don't even think of playing this game on a keyboard!
This will be one of the most frustrating things in your life.
You'll die 10-20 times per level - 1-2 because of enemies' fire, and the rest of the times - because the game just changed the perspective to rapidly that you fell in the chasm or something.
And when you play as clone trooper, you just cannot hit anything bacause of crappy aim.
The game is designed for controllers and developers didn't bother themselves to optimize it for more conventional input devices on PC.

Apart from that the game just isn't as fun as The Clone Wars series. It uses the same characters. but provides minimum backstory (in a Star Wars game!) and no character development.

Also, it uses GFWL. This isn't an issue for me, but some people don't like it. And it is said that GFWL will be taken down on July 2014, that means no achievements any more.

This game makes the entire lego star wars series by travellers tales look like a freakin work of art.

SWTCW is quite possibly the most overused series in the entire star wars saga. This game puts new meaning to the phrase "beating a dead horse". This game is nothing but a pretty label on an empty box (with a pretty penny on the price tag).

Repetitive, easy combat. No real penalty for death whatsoever make the combat seem like a walk in the park. No sweats broken, no tears shed, nothing ineresting at all, really. And to top it off, there are way too many missions. I mean really, WAY too many missions. The combat and platforming are uninteresting enough as it is, but with so many levels, it becomes monotonous as well.

To add insult to injury, there is no creativity behind the level design. The levels are almost as boring and repetitive as the combat. After about ten minutes of gameplay, you have experienced all of the things this game has to offer. After then, it's just the same ten minutes, over and over. Seriously, if I wanted excitement, I'd be better off watching paint dry.

Also, this game's platforming mechanics are an utter disgrace. You jump towards a ledge. You then either catch the ledge, or miss it. No real apperant reason much of the time.

Additionally, the camera angles of this third-person "action" game are atrocious. Making the already unpredictable platforming nigh-impossible.

Very dry and uninteresting voice-acting and storyline serve as yet another nail in the coffin of this game.

Seriously, don't buy it. It's nothing but a scam for your precious money.

1/10
