Reasons to get this game.
1. Squad banter
2. Detonate explosives
3. Awesome breach door manoeuvers
4. Great story (short but great)
5. Awesome music which fits surprisingly well with the Star Wars universe

This is what I call a CLASSIC Star Wars game. It's just so great man, just so great! (did I mention I'm crying?) I always wanted to play a clone trooper fps, and this is THE ONE. So, play it!

Probably the best Star Wars game around. Played this game a few years ago and loved it then. Decided to buy it again and remembered why I enjoyed it so much. This is one of the few games where you actually care what happens to your squadmates (who are great and quite funny). Go buy this game!

A fun squad-based Star Wars game that takes a different approach. Fairly linear in terms of story and combat styles, success will be determined by how well you handle your team. It's fairly short, but always fun.

In my opinion Star Wars Republic Commando has to be one of the best first-person shooters made to date. This is because:
1. The combat feels great! running at a group of droids firing away at you with just the right amount of accuracy to be a threat and then dispatching them one by one with your wristblade is one of the best experiences in gaming!
2. The Team. Your team is made up of 4 people (no spoilers, as you find this all out in the opening) you, the elite Delta 38, the sniper Sev (Delta 07), the hot headed demolitions expert scorch (Delta 62), and the trustworthy commando fixer (Delta 40). Your command over them is relatively limited as you only have 4 options, Search and destroy, Form up, Stay here and Do thing (sniper point, grenade point, breach door, hack, etc) Also if you "die" your squad will carry on fighting until finished and then will revive you with half health (you can order them to revive you sooner but that often puts them in a very vulnerable spot).
3.The environments, without spoiling the game for you the envoronments range from full on battles with other troopers present to creepy environments with your enemies lurking around every other corner.
4. The story. The story really attaches you mentally to your squad and by the end you'll be scolding scorch for shooting you in the back rather than cursing the AI, and there are some real moments of accomplishment in the story such as the end of the first "chapter". The ending is awesome too!.
So to sum up, GO BUY THIS GAME!

A good game for the price. Hopefully they make a sequel. But since disney bought the franchise, I highly doubt that it will come.

I used to play this game on the original Xbox when it came out. Playing this game again for only a little bit sent all kinds of memories of me and my friends laughing and having a great time with this game. The game its self if a nice twist from the star wars games you know. Star Wars republic commando is a gritty, exciting, and bloody first person shooter with a nice team based mechanic in it. The game can be challenging at times and i found myself running out of ammo and from time to time be resorted to using my pistol. I would rate this game 8/10

The way a Star Wars game should be. You will be surprised how well this game plays due to how old it is. It's wonderful. VERY worth the price.

This game came out almost a decade ago, and it's still miles ahead of many modern mainstream titles. This game is truely a gem of the the FPS genre.

Pros:
1. Epic soundtrack
2. Squad mechanic is the best I've ever seen in an FPS (you can actually grow to care about your pod brothers)
3. The story is awesome
4. It actually feels like your inside the helmet of the protagonist

Cons:
1. There is no sequel (which is a blasted shame)

10/10

This used to be my favorite game when I played it on the Xbox, and it's great that now I can play it on PC. I highly recommend this game, it really enjoyable, and for once, you aren't playing a Jedi, Sith, or anyone with a lightsaber for that matter. Control setup is kinda awkward, so I recommend you edit that first before actually starting to play.
It's a real shame I never got to play online multiplayer, though.

Its fun, but the most annoying thing is not being able to turn off toggle ironsights. This might not be a big deal for some people, but this really really annoys me. And Im sure as I play more I will die more. I wish they had made it possible to make it click an hold or just click.
