For the first time ever, players can fight as their favorite Jedi and clone troopers from the preeminent animated television series - from familiar faces like Anakin Skywalker to new heroes like Clone Captain Rex.

  1. All in all Star Wars: Clone Wars Republic Heroes is a game for fans of the TV series. The grind moments offense with the time quite fast and the coop mode makes fun too.
  2. This new Star Wars videogame doesn't make the most of the new generation power, but also is a boring and dull action game, with no variety in its contents.
  3. Perhaps the younger gamers who are fans of the show will find something worthwhile here but the shallow gameplay will deter most.
  4. The Clone Wars is easily one of the least entertaining parts of the Star Wars mythology, Yoda's constant tongue-tied tutorials are more troublesome than a Dagobah skinny-dip, and the whole game feels like a pale imitation of the superior Lego series.
  5. An amazing new low for platforming games. [Christmas 2009, p.102]
  6. Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Republic Heroes is not a great game full of bugs. The gameplay is very repetitive and is skipping once in a while, often the camera isn’t positioned right and you can’t see were to go. But the ambiance and the story seem to fit the TV-series very well. Star Wars is one of my favourite film series ever and there are a lot of games out there, but Republic Heroes is doing too much in a wrong way to get a positive grade.
  7. Republic Heroes is bad on so many fundamental levels that I doubt even the series' fans will like it. Everything from controls to graphics are lacking everything that makes an attractive product.

    When 900 years old you reach, look this good you will not.

    My 8-year old got this for Christmas. Several sessions all totaled, it probably took him less than 3 hours to finish the entire game. Not a lot of bang for the consumer buck, and he didn't get excited at all while playing, either. Expand

    This is no doubt the worst star wars video game ever created. The first few levels are okay, but after a while, it gets really, really boring. Also, the game has no storyline. If you didn't watch the TV show, you would have no idea what was happening. Some of the levels the feature clones are okay, but all the jedi levels are horrible. Boss fights are long and frustrating. not even frustrating in a good way, just in a stupid way. Unless you and/or your kids are hardcore fans of the TV show, do not even think about buying this.

    I bought this game , because I had nothing to play on my Xbox 360. As soon I as i got home , I popped in the disc to my Xbox 360. I played the campaign until it finished and I only played it for 4 hours and it's finished. So, in my opinion do not play Star Wars:Republic Heroes. Expand

    This game will join the pile of crap Star Wars games just like the previous 50 Star Wars games already have.(except Star Wars Battlefront 2, that was great.) Expand
