when i was 9 years old i saw this game while browsing on youtube and i really wanted to play it but i didnt have a steam account so i couldnt really figure out how to play it, a few months ago i saw the game on sale and i decided to buy it just for the nostalgic childhood moments. I didnt expect the game to be fantastic, just a standard game with bad graphics because it was developed in 2005. But when i played the game i was really surprised, i didn't expect the game to be so good, when you look at it; the graphics are actually very good for a 2005 game, the story is amazing and the gameplay is very enjoyable. Because of the variety of different weapons there are options of playstyles for each individual person. and the ability to remotely control your teammates is very nice too, i just wish there was a sequel or a remake kind of thing, i would be very happy to see this game remade with modern day technology.

Great Star Wars Shooter.
It has a very good story and the mapdesign is good either. You can still play the multoplayer with Game Ranger, a program to play old games in multiplayer.

Amazing first person shooter.

Just picked this up recently after playing it many years ago and it is one of the few games which I feel was not made good by nostalgia but in fact one of the best star wars games made and with very good graphics for its time.

Needs a sequel!

When I first played this game years ago on the xbox, what struck me then and still does now is the fact that the game had friendly AI who were actually competant and capable of dealing some real damage to the enemy. They're not just background pieces made to look good while you go Rambo on the enemy.

The gameplay is still solid now, with few glitches, if any. Your teammates can be directed in battle to perform various actions and use specialized weapons against the enemy. The game doesn't give you freedom to choose where to set up these weapons anywhere you please. Instead, it places those locations strategically, which isn't surprising with how old the game is and how revolutionary the AI design was for a singleplayer campaign at the time. There's good level design and coupling that with hard difficulty will make players cautious as they advance towards their objective. You can have your AI partners arm bombs, hack doors, and other various tasks, or you can do it yourself and have the AI protect you (which they actually do, though you still need to be alert of enemies that slip by). If you royally screw up (maybe you threw a grenade and it bounced back into your face, or you took an anti tank round to the chest) and get shot down, it's not game over. Instead, you have a chance of getting revived and back into the fight.

Sound assets are still good. Subtitles are recommended if you want to know what everyone's saying since blaster fire and explosions can drown out certain pieces of dialogue. The soundtrack consists of a mix of star wars music and the same music mixed with a bit of a choral-like singing which adds to the dark atmosphere of the game. Your partners will sometimes say funny quotes, some scripted, some not, depending on who you have doing what (quoting Sev, "Sir, you sure you don't want somebody who can shoot straight?") Overall sound is good.

The graphics of the game hasn't aged well over the years but the game's still running smooth on my system (Windows 7). I still haven't seen many graphical glitches in the game. Not much more to day.

Overall if the game still works on your PC, it's worth taking a look at Star Wars Republic Commando.

I feel kinda bad for saying this, being a huge Star Wars fan, but I can't recommend this game. It's just too boring for me. I only kept playing so that I could finish the story but I recently gave up on it. While I didn't have much fun playing it, I did like the ability to control your squad and give orders.
If I had to recommend a Star Wars game though, it would be Battlefront 2

If you like squad based games ...AND a darker take on Star Wars then this is the game for you. You play as one of four elite storm troopers that are specially tasked with covert missions during the timespan of the clone wars leading up to Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. While it is a dated game, with clunky combat and incredibly incompetent AI, the story is intriguing and the characters are memorable. Each Commando has his own personality, and while that may seem out of the ordinary for clones, they were specially grown to develop their own personalities. This does not account for each Commando's different voice, however; for every clone should sound like Jango Fett like in Episode II. I understand why the developers made this change because they wanted to give greater depth to each Commando. This did add to the overall game in a positive manner, because hearing the same voice over and over again from each Commando would get rather irksome. I mentioned at the beginning that this game is one of the "darker," in the series of Star Wars games out there. What I mean by this is that you play as a very vulnerable and mortal soldier during the clone wars, unlike many games where you play as an all powerful jedi or sith, in Republic Commando you have to play strategically in order to survive each mission in the game. There aren't many missions in the campaign, but each mission spans the length of a couple hours. I find the balance between the clones and their enemies in this game slightly ridiculous (it takes about 2-3 grenades to destroy a Super Battle Droid,) but then again, it is a game that really shows how close you can come to death as a clone, and gives you the feeling of playing smart and strategically...which I really enjoy. While you have little command of your squad's general movement throughout each campaign, when there is something that needs blowing up you can prompt any clone to set a bomb. You can also prompt clones to find cover in certain situations, and each clone in your squad has a specialty. Think of your squad as a TF2 lineup and you cover all the bases (one heavy weapon clone, demo clone, support, etc.) I have not cleared the entire campaign, but what I have played I have found challenging on normal mode. pick it up when it goes on sale and have fun playing one of those hidden gem Star Wars games.

Pretty damn good game I'd say myself for just under 10 hours of campaign gameplay! I love how it starts on Geonosis at the beginning of the Clone Wars in the 2nd movie, "Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones" and ends around the time of the Separatist Invasion of the Wookie homeworld Kashyyyk in the 3rd movie, "Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith". It is an awesome and excellent First-Person Shooter game for being made in 2005!

I liked this game, and keep wondering why there isn't a sequel out given *spoilers* *spoilers* *more spoilers*. I'm hardly a fan of the Star Wars prequels, but the characters and plot are interesting and solid. I especially love the first half of chapter 2, with its "haunted house" feel. I can even get over the fact that Scorch is voiced by Raphael Sbarge (that guy who will forever be Carth Onasi to me and who only has one acting style), given that all the squad's personalities are both clearly defined and show development across the plot-arc. For instance, I love how Fixer is incredibly straitlaced but sometimes the facade cracks, just a little.

I also don't play a whole lot of shooters, but I really enjoyed the feeling of being in charge of a squad that reacts to me without a whole lot of complicated keyboard commands to memorize. In fact, there's only one button to direct every terrain-contextualized action, and that's okay with me! A little odd that the boys will get infinite ammo of whatever type they're using while they're in a terrain position, but hey, Scorch lobbing unlimited grenades is also okay with me. The graphics are also fine for how old it is, and I like the little details like the visor windshield wiper for rain/blood/oil/scratches(!?). It was a little frustrating at times when running low on ammo or health and with no way to get more before having to survive difficult waves of enemies, but that's almost certainly because I'm not very good at shooters. :P

Overall, I really got the feeling that I was part of a team while playing this game, and it was really awesome.

Star Wars: Republic Commando was a great experience for the most part, but it got fairly repetitive after a while. I got VERY tired of how many times I've had to breach a door or kill Droidekas and Super Battle Droids, and It doesn't help how easy this game is. Anything one would consider "challenging" about it is how you run out of ammo in the midst of every other SBD/Droideka/Spider-Droid/Magna-Guard "Ambush". Because of the game's repetitive tendancies, the little length that the game has seems like less of an issue. The game does have it's moments though. For example, I personally found it fun mowing down Battle Droids and Geonosians every once in a while. The game's soundtrack was an enjoyable mix of music from the Prequel Trilogy, a bit of music from the Original Trilogy, and some original music written specifically for this game. Soundtrack aside, the graphics of this game compliment the feel of being in the Star Wars universe as well. Despite all the problems the game has, it still has that charm to it that many other Star Wars games have, so I definately reccomend it

This is one of the best FPS games i have ever played, and dont let the pictures fool you, the game has been updated but the store page has not. if this isnt the best FPS game ive ever played, then it is definetly the best single player fps game i have ever played; amazing story, amazing gameplay, and missions that are difficult enough that you dont beat it the first time for every single one. the only downside to this game is that like most other star wars games, the multiplayer was removed, and because of that i give it an 8/10. also, i took a look at all of the negative reviews, and all of them are either a) negative because the game crashes if you change the resolution; this was fixed in a recent update. b) negative because of other gameplay and lighting issues; these have either been fixed or the person just didn't have a good enough computer. c) because the mouse sensetivity on the startup screen is insanley high. this one i actually agree with, but its really not a good reason to give the game a bad review.
