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.

Ever since i have first bought this game (off steam) i have played it at least once trough every year. My favorite game ever (likely thanks to Nostalgia, but game would be great nevertheless, aside from graphics and shooting. Animations though are still acceptable and graphics are good enough for me not to care)

I really want a seguel. I just hope sguad is joking as well as in this game, instead of turning it into generic EA multiplayer focused BS with yearly copies.

This game may be old, as it was made over 10 years ago (2005), but, it still is today my all time favourite FPS and Star Wars game. This game puts you into the feet of an elite republic commando squad leader, only by the name of 'Boss: 38' (Voiced by the same person who voiced Jango Fett). He has three other clones in his squad, 'Sev: 07' (The Sniper), 'Fixer: 40' (The Hacker) and last but deffinitly not least 'Scorch: 62' (The Demolishion, and my favourite clone in the game), who all take place in 'Delta Sqaud'. Campaign is FANTASTIC, AWESOME storyline, with amazing characters. Unfortunatly, multiplayer no longer works, but you can still system link with ur friends and enjoy tring to kill each other.

All in all, this is an amazing game, I 100% recomand this game to all of you, AND IT'S ONLY $10.

Thanks for reading and I hope you get this game.

... the feeling when your trusty AI(?) squad buddies revive you, having heroicly finished off most of the remaining enemies from a heated battle. It's the only shooter I can think of where I have had the sensation of team spirit and belonging, and this came from 3 scripted AI prerecorded voice-acting based imaginary characters.

Otherwise, technically it's a pretty mediocre shooter, but the difference is made by the company.
Imagine sitting on a bench at the beach and watching the sunset on a summer day. Now imagine the same thing with the company of your 3 most beloved persons.
It's the genius of that component which makes something ordinary into a shear extraordinary and memorable experience.

It would probably have the same effect on a COD multiplayer game if you replaced the human teammates with these 3 AI. They might not always be so deadly effective, but it's the spirit they bring into the battle that makes that invaluable contribution. And so this makes it one of those quite few games in history which I would define having that inexplicable soul.

10/10 for being something unique, memorable and creating a special roster of feelings that only a truly great game/piece of art can accomplish.

Best FPS for Star Wars.
Screw EA.
Screw the new Battlefront.
Play this game over and over.
GG.

In all seriousness, this game is a must buy for any Star Wars fan, even if you don't like the Clone Wars or the prequel movies. It's 1000x better than the new Battlefront game.
You control Delta squad, a group of four clone commandos, Delta Sev, Delta Scorch, Delta Fixer, and you, Delta Boss, the leader of the squad. You fight your way through battledroids, super battledroids, droidekas, spider droids, flyings things that try to suck on your head, Magna Guards, Geonosians, and even lizards. It's true, the campaign is fairly short and multiplayer doesn't work anymore, but guess what. Those 9 ish hours were the best 9 hours of my life! I recommend this game 100%.

*PSA: Despite taking place in the prequel era, Republic Commando does a good job of steering clear of those movies' bull-♥♥♥♥, and should not be considered when deciding whether or not to purchase and play this game.

Overview
STAR WARS Republic Commando is, at the time of this review, over 11 years old. I remember playing this game a couple years after it came out, back on my original XBOX. I was just a little kid back then. If you are buying this game now, it's almost certainly for nostalgia, as it most definitely was for me. In this review I'll go over how the graphics/performance, gameplay, and plot hold up over a decade later, and some closing thoughts.

Graphics/Performance
While I have heard some complaints of Commando not working on peoples modern rigs, I am running a PC on Windows 10 with no components older than 2012, and I ran this game just fine. I cranked up all the graphical settings, except turning on FSAA as that would cause my game to crash almost immediately. The max resolution of Commando is 1024x768, but you can change it to any res as long as you are willing to tweak one of the games system files. It absolutely makes the game look much sharper, but I found that the game was extremely choppy in 1080p, despite getting 100+ fps, so I stuck with 1024x768. Now on with the overall looks. They are ugly. I really doubt anyone who didn't play this game a long time ago will be able to stomach the graphics because of how spoiled we are today. For me they were definitely an eye sore, but I put up with it because it was hard to criticize something I remember from my childhood. All in all, the visuals and performance are just barely passable as long as you can put up with them for old times’ sake.

Gameplay
The gameplay of Commando was very varied for its time, but not all that much by today’s standards. You'll find yourself fighting lots of the same enemies, in very tedious battles. You'll have your squad members to back you up and give commands to, but even what they can do for you gets very old and repetitive. Small arms, heavy arms, melee, grenades, turrets, and explosive charges, these are your tools for fighting the onslaught of various droids, Geonosians, Trandoshans, and the odd battleship. It can be tense and tough at times, but can also feel very samey and drawn out. Once again though, the saving grace was my recollection of scenes and actions I had almost completely forgotten, which made the monotonous gameplay with the rare tense moment more than just sufferable.

Plot
You are Delta 38, commissioned with your squad members 07 (Sev), 40 (Fixer), and 62 (Scorch) to be a covert and elite clone task force, whose job is to strike swiftly and hard at the republic's foes. You have been born and bred to work together as a team, and are much more skilled than your lowly infantry-ranked cousins. STAR WARS Republic Commando will take you through 3 primary locations (littered with objectives for you and your squad), where you will blast your way through copious enemies. From Geonosis to a republic star ship, and finally the Wookie home planet of Kashyyyk, the experience really is bad ♥♥♥. Especially so when I think of 5-6 year old me making my way through it. There it is again, the nostalgia factor. Very important for playing this game in 2016, onwards.

Final Thoughts
Republic Commando is an 8-9 hour long linear Star Wars tactical-shooter I'd only recommend you play if you have some deep nostalgia for it, or if you are a total Star Wars fanatic. In my case (as you've probably caught on) it was the nostalgia. However, I did find that part of the magic 5 or 6 year old me preserved up to teenage me was misleading, and some of my love for this game has now been worn away. But that's beside the point now, so I'll just rephrase the theme of this review to end it off. I'd suggest anyone with memories of this game in their childhood to take another swing at it, otherwise, steer clear. I'm living proof nostalgia was enough to make this game worth reliving.

THIS IS HOW YOU PLAY MULTIPLAYER AFTER GAMESPY'S SHUTDOWN:
1. Download GameRanger from www.gameranger.com
2. Install Gameranger
3. Create an account
4. Launch the game from GameRanger
5. Find a server, and join it!
PLEASE UPVOTE THIS REVIEW, THE MULTIPLAYER IN THE GAME IS VERY UNDERRATED.
The Singleplayer in this game is also some of the best Star Wars games ever had. Great story involving Clone Commandos. ♥♥♥♥ those bulletsponge Super Battle Droids. Only problem with the story is (SPOILER)the cliffhanger ending, this is why people want RC2

Star Wars, Republic Commando
Note: I have never played multiplayer, (as it was shut down with the exception of GameRanger servers) so I will not be covering it.

Star Wars, Republic Commando is a brilliant game. You play as the leader of Delta Squad; an elite squad of four clone commandos, each with their own respective ability (Sniper, Slicer/hacker, etc.) however from memory, it doesn't entire matter whom you order to do what.
Stats
Republic Commando Contains:
  • Three different campaign missions, each lasting several hours
  • A total campaign length of around 10 hours at a moderate pace
  • Very different atmospheres within the respective missions
  • A canon addition to the Star Wars story line (I believe Disney kept it as canon)
Pros
  • Older game, therefore built to be run on toasters
  • One of very few genuinely good Star Wars games
  • With squad commands, you can order AI to target specific enemies, or preform certain tasks, allowing you to concentrate on a primary objective.
  • A good plot, that gives you another perspective of the clone wars
Cons
  • Bad graphics, but the game IS old
  • At points, there is some repetition, but the concepts that are repeated are quite good, and do not easily get old
  • While sometimes the game is so hard one will likely have to temporarily lower the difficulty, other times, it is ridiculously easy, and players will not find any challenge in these moments.

8/10

Overall if you are a Star Wars fan or just a fan of tactical shooters this game is for you.
