Great game. Worth buying for the singleplayer. And also worth buying for the multiplayer for hosting LAN parties.

I was already loving it with within the first 5 minutes of the game. The co-op mechanics are great and really rely on teamwork. It's a shame we'll probably never see a sequel to this great game.

This is too much like the xbox from 2000 when I first played this game, love the throw back of a real game unlike todays which is more of rank stats and add on's instead of having fun with people/friends instead of cry babies.

This is by far one of the best classic Star Wars games you can buy. It's got that old school shooter feel to it with a great story behind it. I definitely reccomend this if you've considered buying some older games. It can definitely be a real challenge depending on the difficulty level you choose.

But be warned! Super battle droids are a pain in the ♥♥♥.

This is the first (i think) multiplayer game that is not multiplayer, it is a realy good game that takes you behind the door of Star wars warfare. Think about your team, kill ugly genosians and droids take a part in the invasion of Kashyyyk and the battle of genosis. Also the the music is AWSOME, after all this writhing i say i realy like this game. :)

This game was amazing back in the day. It's pretty much unplayable, now. Like many others, I've installed a few fixes from other players, but it's still glitchy. The cursor in the menu moves 1/4 of the screen when the mouse moves 1/16th of an inch on the lowest DPI setting. In game, the cursor is much slower, but it's "jumpy" (for lack of a better word) to where the game started giving me a headache after only 5-10 minutes.

Some have said it's modern hardware plaguing the game, but I've played FarCry and a few others from the same or older time period without any of this craziness.

Would I recommend Republic Commando? YES. Fantastic game.

Would I recommend Republic Commando as sold on Steam? NO. Not unless you are willing to really sink time into getting it to work.

By the way, I had to play the game in windowed mode, because every time I tried full screen, the game crashed. Personally, I'm going to put more time into making it work because I know it's an amazing game, but I would NOT recommend this to just any casual gamer due to the glitches.

This game was amazing. The gameplay felt like call of duty but a Star Wars version of it. The story was interesting and kept getting good as you advance through each level. I have to say playing the game on medium was hard enough. So if you want something that's in between easy and medium, pick easy. Enemies tend to swarm out of nowhere in hordes and you can get stuck if you're not careful. I have no idea if the online multiplayer works but it would be even better if it does work.

There were a few bugs but not anything you cant restart the game for. The weapons you can get change based on the planet or ship you are on. The A.I may have a few glitches but hardly aany worth getting upset over for. The enemies are consistent and have a good range of elites that can stop you in your tracks. The graphics were flawless. I can play the game without worrying about the creeen being too dark or too bright. There are times where blood gets on your character's visor but it is cleaned off automatically. As for the sound, you can hear everything clearly although there may be a few times where the characters are muffled by the gameplay. I do wish the game had a feature where you can choose whether to obey or disobey orders. This would especially important in the end of the game (read the spoiler below). Finally we have the overall game power ups. They put in just enough ammo packs for you to not die during a misson. Sometimes there are obstacles that you have to blow up to get to them, but there's only a few. The most annoying part of the game is of course the droid despensers. The regular droid are easy to get past, it's the B2 super droids and the Droidekas that gave me a problem. If you don't have any grenades or the anti armor weapon, you're screwed. All in all, an awesome game that has it's challenges that keeps you playing it.

Spoilers below!

Sev was the best commando! Why did we have to leave him behind? We helped out scorch when he was in trouble. I just hated the ending of this game. It definetly needs a sequel.

One of the best Star Wars shooters ever made to date. It's story is a very diverse tale that leads you to many unique planets with their own situation as your only objectives are to complete your mission and keep your squad mates alive. You fight everything from battle droids to geonosian natives all way to Trandoshans. Everything leading up to the end is just one story of the best clones to have ever served in the Clone Wars. The only con is the cliffhanger ending.

8/10

Star Wars: Republic Commando is a tactical first-person shooter set in the Star Wars universe, developed by LucasArts and published by Activision and LucasArts in 2005. The game uses the Epic Games Unreal Engine.

In Star Wars: Republic Commando you play as an elite Clone Commando accompanied by three other squad members through three main missions with submissions included. In the game you investigate hostile areas and search for enemy Intel. You are Delta RC-1138 (Boss, orange suit), the leader of Delta 38 who meet up with Delta RC-1262 (Scorch, yellow suit), Delta RC-1140 (Fixer, green suit) and Delta RC-1207 (Sev, red suit). These elite Clone commandos are created at the clone factories on Kamino. As a squad leader you can order your squad members to attack, defend a position or blow up blockades and each squad member has its own abilities. During your military operations you will find yourself at Geonosis (Rocky desert planet) where droids are manufactured, at the Republic Assault Ship (RAS) and at Kashyyyk (Wookie Forest/Swamps Planet).

I highly enjoyed this game because tactical functions and of the HUD (Head Up Display) interface which is built inside the Helmet of your character. Also the weapon designs are well done, for instance the DC-17m Commando Rifle Model which is an adaptable rifle of the Galactic Republic. You can change parts of the gun while in battle and switch a modular sniper- or anti-armor grenade launcher attachment when you progress into the storyline. I also liked the hidden blade (Knuckle Plate Vibro Blade) which comes in handy when you are out of ammunition or just for dealing massive damage in close-combat. The voice acting is great and the interaction between squad members makes the game feel lively.

I highly recommend this game to people who like the Star Wars Universe or tactical first-person Sci-Fi shooters with great gameplay, certainly when the game is on sale!

This game is so good. It runs well on my potato while looking alright, the gameplay is great, the sound is awesome. The only bad point is the occasional clunkyness of the menu system, and the requirement to change hex values in the engine to get 1920x1080 display.

I'll make this review short and sweet ( maybe ).

STAR WARS™ Republic Commando™ is as it shows an FPS game featuring the Republic Commandos' dangerous missions throughout their first year(s) in combat. The gameplay is pretty good and for all you gamers out there with ridiculously sucky laptops or computers that have horrible fps in modern games, this game will run beautifully in your system. Your teammates are quite smart even though they are just AI's, they warn you about everything and anything throughout the game. Star Wars fan or not this game is truely a must have if you're interested in First Person Shooting games with a well made story. If you're thinking of buying this then do it, you absolutely wont regret it and if you do, well sucks to be you.

spent countless hours as a kid on the cd version, though graphics like every game seem better in your head when you played them ages ago, the game play and the game itself has survived the test of time. One of my all time favourites!

It's probably one of the best Star Wars game you could get, it's cheap, fun, has a great soundtrack & nice level design, my favourite being aboard the republic ship. The levels are short but theirs plenty of them so you will get at least 8-10 hours of gameplay worth going through the campaign. I did have a few problems with the DPI it was way to fast & I had to set it down to 1 just to look around & aim correctly. I wasn't able to play at 1080p even tried going into the files to change it but it was pretty buggy.
