Very good story driven game that seems to be lacking in games these days. The characters are interesting and crack funny jokes every once and a while.

Even though it is well over a decade old, it is such an immersive experience to play as a clone commando giving orders to your squad. Some missions are executed so well like when you investigate the missing republic ship.

They need to make a new one with the frostbite engine!

I remember seeing the trailer for this when I was a little kid. Back then I couldn't play it because all I had was a PS2. Moment I saw this game on steam I was filled with nostalgia and bought it right away. I loved every minute of this game as it helped me live out my childhood fantasy of being a clone trooper.

I really like the squad system where you can take out enemies by flanking them or sniping them and also the story isn't to bad at all but I would recommend you get it on a sale as it's less for more.

Played the game a long time ago. Bought on Steam on sale because of nostalgia. Still as good and fun as I remember. 10/10, needs sequel really badly (doesn't matter if officially canon or not).

This may seem like an exaggeration, but Star Wars: Republic Commando may be the best game I've ever played. I am a huge Star Wars fan, and I actually found out about this game from the tie-in novels . I bought this game during a sale and mostly left it alone until recently. Now, after playing it for a few hours, I can confirm that it is everything that its small but fanatic cult following says it is.

This depiction of the Star Wars universe is much darker than any other I've encountered before. Rather than following the heroic Jedi in an unrealistic "good vs evil" fight, Republic Commandos occupy that "gray area" and win their fights through brutal efficiency. In fact, Jedi don't even play a significant role in this game. Also, rather than showing typical sanitized Star Wars death (no blood), gratuitous amounts of gore frequently splatters the player's helmet, which is eventually cleaned by a nifty windshield wiper-like device.

Gameplay is heavily centered around a squad of four, where the leader is controlled by the player. Commands are given to the other three soldiers, consisting of a sniper, a demolitions expert, and a hacker. AI teammates are actually useful in this game without making it too easy for the player (take notes, Overkill). Each member can be told to perform certain tasks, such as manning a turret, blowing a door open, or providing sniper fire. Everything feels seamless and well-executed, especially the door breach maneuver . #SquadGoals

Graphics are, well, 2005. Can't expect much. The resolution doesn't even go to 1080p. Thankfully, there are mods to fix that. They're good enough to create a reasonably immersive environment, but I'd like to think that it's the story and gameplay that makes this game what it is. The soundtrack fills in the rest of the atmosphere, which is a combination of John Williams glory and some original compositions. Good music is pretty much a given for anything Star Wars related.

About the story (SPOILERS AHEAD):
I haven't played through the entire game yet, but I've played enough and have read enough of the novels to get a sense of what's going on.

Late in the game, one of the commandos, RC-1207 or "Sev", is left behind on the planet of Kashyyyk following a botched extraction. The game then ends on a cliffhanger regarding the fate of Sev. The game then ends on that cliffhanger. In the novel, Sev's former drill sergeant and father figure Kal Skirata then embarks on a long journey to find him. Unfortunately, thanks to LucasArts getting really messed up and its transition to Disney, both the sequel to this game and the sequel to Imperial Commando were cancelled. There have been rumors that EA will release a sequel and that Sev is alive . However, they are only rumors that we can only hope are true.


TL;DR: Underrated squad-based first person shooter with great mechanics and story. Give sequel pls

I remember playing this game back when console gaming was good. I played this game pretty much when it came out. I loved it back then, and love it even more now, since I'm more concious about the game.

Tremendous audio: great voice acting and clarity, amazing SFX, and epic music.
Great graphics (for it's time).
Aged perfectly well. It feels at home with today's FPS, only slower.
Great multiplayer (now if we could get more people to play it online.)
Great story, and they don't take much of your time.
Intense gameplay, with quick desicion making action from full on attack and support, to revive you and turret cover.

BUY THIS GAME! YOU'LL LOVE IT EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT A STAR WARS FAN.
TAKE IT FROM ME!

I recommend this game to absolutely everyone.

I remember back in the day during the age of Windows XP, I waited countless hours for the demo of this game to become fully downloaded onto my PC, after that I installed it and tried it out and I was very fascinated with what I really saw in this game. this is more like Clone trooper FPS, except the elite way with the different kinds of up close detailed war technology that you use throughout the gameplay.

This game is ♥♥♥♥ing amazing, hands down. great story (tad bit short), awesome squad gameplay, and just
wow
If you play this game and want to find out more about the story and stuff, I highly reccomend the republic commando book series by Karen Traviss, it plays deep into the story of these commandos and another squad, along with jedi, and mandalorians

A solid game. Hard to belive it was made in 2005, with the in-game squad mechanics being better than the ones found in most modern games. The gameplay changes little but there's something so endearing about it that it doesn't really matter. Not much else to say. Just get the game. It's definitely worth it.
