  1. Fans of the Star Wars – The Clone Wars series with a friend aside will have some fun hours. Especially appealing to young gamers!
  2. It’s a shame to see how a massive franchise such as the one represented by Star Wars can still go oh! so bad. Star Wars The Clone Wars Republic Heroes is poor under all aspects, including the most prominent one, i.e. the gameplay...Only children will enjoy it.
  3. The obligatory checklist of unlockables is present here, but it's not enough to really sweeten the pot. The gameplay feels like it was phoned in to the programmers by the creative team, and the overall execution is really sloppy.

    The intended audience for Republic Heroes is going to be much more forgiving of the flaws than older Star Wars veterans.
  5. Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes, the latest faceplant for the once-storied franchise, obviously and shamefully relies more on name value than actual value. [Holiday 2009, p.90]

    Unless you or your kids want to play as Jedi or clone troopers just for the sake of doing so, then there's really nothing here that'll keep anyone, young or old, interested for very long. Even if it does, you or your kin are bound to be frustrated at numerous sections and will likely wind up putting down the controller sooner or later.
  7. This platformer based on the Clone Wars TV series tries to copy the Lego game formula but gets just about everything wrong.
  8. The gameplay is a mess from start to finish, and the muddy visuals and terrible writing don't help things a bit. Furthermore, the game breaks itself by allowing players to access a cheat menu and use in-game points to purchase exploits, such as one-hit kills and invulnerability, during the very first playthrough.
  9. Easy, boring and often massively annoying. Yet another entry on the ever-growing list of sub-par Star Wars games. [Winter 2009, p.56]
  10. 25
    Its basic design philosophy is one of laziness and glossing over problems rather than really putting out the effort to make a decent game. That's a bitter pill to swallow for a kid who just shelled out 50 bucks of lunch money.

    What critics forget is that this game was intended for kids. The controls work fine, and the Wii remote is a nicely fine way to function.

This isn't really a game for gamers, but if a child wants a Star Wars video game, I would recommend Republic Heroes Full Review »
