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 Crisis.
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 actually 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. . .

Well Star Wars Republic Commando is imo one of the best Star Wars games out their....may even be better then Battlefront 2 or Knights of the old republic but damn that's a hard choice. All Star Wars games are awesome.
But back to Star Wars Republic Commando.
It is such a badass game. You get to command 3 Squad mates while battling your way though the galaxy on geonosis,A creepy ♥♥♥ spaceship,(That level still gives me the creeps), and kashyyyk.
While at the same time getting a bunch of sweet cool weapons and fighting a bunch of cool enemies.
Sadly their isn't any 4 player Co op but i'm pretty sure their is or someone is gonna make a mod for that.(I hope)
In general you should buy it. Star Wars fan or not buy it. Like FPS Games? Buy it. Like Star wars? ♥♥♥♥ing Buy it.
All in all 10/10 One of the best games ever made imo.

Fantasic game, worth every cent.
Great campaign with great AI Squadmates, locations, and creatures to fight.
Also includes multiplayer, a simple deathmatch, not too many people playing online, but still fun with some decent maps.

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?

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.

I forgot how amazing this game was! Back in the day this was one of my favorite Star Wars games. The gameplay is pretty linear but thats not a bad thing. It is quite difficult at times and if you dont use your commands correctly, it could mean the end of you and your squad. Love the perspective it gives you as a trooper and in first person. This game is quite old but it still looks great! If you havnt played this before or havnt in a long time, i highly recommend this! Its a gem for Star Wars fans. Its only $10, why not get this?

Tinkering might be needed.
I needed to set "bump" setting in the video option to low. Then I could set everything else to highest. Otherwise it would crash (Found this inf. on the internets).

So now that I am 90 minutes into it I can see why everyone loved this game. Its a solid FPS. The guns are not great but the action is exciting, the voice acting is sooo much better than today's crappy FPS games. The music is awesome. Your NPC buddies are kick **s. The world is simple old lo res but full of atmosphere. It's smooth. I'm enjoying it... It's supposed to be about 10 hours which is fine with me. It's too dated for me to put more then 10 hours into it. But it's more then worth a $1 per hour.

For instance, I managed to enjoy shadow of mordor (at least the killing chieftans) because of cutting edge animations and fun high res combat ** DESPITE the horrible generic characters, awful forgettable plot lines, dreary music, and repetitive environments. This game you will get as much
value for your money. The combat animations suck and the shooting is not the greatest(but it's OK - and there is some tactical parts) but the GAME as a whole is well conceived and extremely well executed. It's better than the AAA titles of the modern era.

**I know Mordor is not a FPS so the comparison is not 1:1 but it's the last game I played and the most "new" and slickest game to have been released so I'm just comparing value and I'm making a case for trying out this dated title. TYPE or PASTE your text here...

I bought this game during the May 4th sale because I thought it looked cool. It's been sitting in my library ever since because I never decided to play it. And even though I only have a few hours on it, I still find it a really good game.

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
