In this game, you play as Commando Delta 38 (Boss/Leader).
The game follows the story of three missions throughout Delta Squad's career in the Separatist Crists.
From fighting alongside wookies to getting your face drilled by a scavenger droid, you lead your squad to complete objectives your normal, mass produced, counterparts could/cannot.

The game and story is nice, I loved it and maybe you will too. This is from the soldier's perspective as to the usual jedi perspective. The game plays pretty damn smooth on PC. I haven't had any real game-breaking problems. The game is old enough to even play on lower-end laptops. You get to actuall order your squad to do things (ex.When you issue the Search and Destroy order, they become aggressive and move ahead even if you're looking around, You can order them to set demolition charges on objectives to progress or you could order them to secure the area and plant the demolition charge yourself. You can even send them to sniper/anti-armor positions as well as turrets.)

If you lose all your health, you get downed and the game doesn't end until your entire squad is downed. So while you're downed you could either tell them to maintain current orders (ex. search and destroy) or order the closest squad member to revive you. There's also the option to load the last save while you're downed. There's also quicksaves, I hotkeyed mine to F1 and F3 because I can screw things up a lot.

I don't think you can really get through this game without ordering your squad around. You take quite a bit of damage, even on medium difficulty. Just for future reference, don't run infront of your squad while they're firing a sniper or a anti-armor grenade. Bad things happen. . .

All in all this game was great for it's time and pretty short if you know what you're doing. I just REALLY wish there was a sequal just because of the ending. . .

Republic Commando is a FANTASTIC game, one of the greatest Star Wars games ever made and unquestionably the best Star Wars first-person shooter ever made (I do not count Jedi Outcast or Jedi Academy, because the lightsabers kind of radically change those games to the point where they no longer really qualify). The squad AI is still incredibly good by today's standards, the characters are compelling and smartly-written, and the environments and story are original and creative.

But I cannot openly recommend getting this on Steam without some qualifying statements.

Republic Commando is an old game. A very old game. And it does not play nicely with newer computers. Problems with bumpmapping in the graphics can result in crashes, and trying to get it to run on a 64-bit Windows OS is a horrific struggle. If you have Windows 7 or 8 64-bit, Republic Commando may need to be sadly relegated to the history books. Hopefully your memories, if you got a chance to play it back in the day. You will likely not get another.

NO! Stop what you're doing right now! Don't buy that game for $20 that you would never even play after 2 weeks! Buy this game right now! It's fun, challenging, and an FPS. What more could you want?

Updated review. I just found a fix to enable widescreen resolutions and the game is actually infinitely better. Looks much better and plays much better. A really great little game that I would definitely recommend.

Most poorly optimized game in history. Mouse controls are far too sensitive in the main menu, which will be as far as you can get in the game. Selecting campaign or multiplayer instantly results in the game crashing. Better on console, I want my $10 back.

Pros
+Decent graphics
+Set in Star wars universe
Cons
-Little to no story
-Very Linear
-Feels like a shooting fest

Overall 6/10
A solid game that was good for its time but has not aged well in my eyes i recommend only for diehard Star Wars fans
There are much better Star wars games out there such as Kotor , kotor 2 , Battlefront , Jedi Knight series and Empire at war

Republic Commando has aged quite well over the years. It's a solid squad-based shooter, set in the Star Wars universe. What's not to like?

really decent game. countless hourrs from my youth were spent playing it on disk when it first came out, way way way too many hours.
in modern context the game holds its own, though its graphics have aged (gracefully and tastefully though might i add) and its Ai is not as polished as something from 2010 upwards your squad is always reliable and the hostiles always competent.

that said, there are so many bullett sponges in the game it makes me mad, if there was a way to tweak the damage output for both hostiles and friendles (character included) to far reater heaights then this game could rival many a modern shooter, and if story and atmosphere is taken into account it could probabley beat it too.

A shooter from a few years ago that's showing it's age, but the gameplay is still fun. The story is kick-♥♥♥, which makes up for the AI which can be stupid at times. Squad banter is the best thing about this game. Also, the ending makes me want a sequal something fierce.

LIKE, SO BAD. I NEED IT - I NEED A SEQUAL.

SEV PLS. I WILL COME 4 U. JUST W8.
