  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.

    Still, for anyone with a youngling who loves the Lego Star Wars games, the bang-on look and feel of Clone Wars will be a solid co-op romp. [Holiday 2009, p.80]

    Quibbles and gripes aside it's safe to say Star Wars fans have had to often put up with worse, with last year's abysmal Lightsaber Duels immediately springing to mind. The biggest flaw of Republic Heroes, other than its generally unlikable source material, is that it feels unfinished. As a result, poor execution mars what could have been a likable child-orientated platformer.
  4. If you have such a child in your household, I would do everything in my power to ensure they never catch wind of this game.
  5. 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.
  6. Star Wars brand's strength is really timeless, but it's not enough to save a game which is really too easy and too rough around the edges to be considered really worth of a videogamer's time and money.
  7. Whilst there is a lot of room for improvement, a lot, there is enjoyment to be had especially for a younger gamer in short bursts.
  8. A good example of milking a franchise gone too far.
  9. This Clone Wars game is not the ideal game. It has the potential, but it lacks the visual, the gameplay and the appeal. It's boring, repetitive and short, a game just for hardcore Star Wars lovers.
  10. Disappointing controls, restricted gameplay and poor graphics are the key words of Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes.

    It seemed impossible to mess up but sadly, that's exactly what they did.
  12. Recommending Republic Heroes wouldn't be fair because it's simply a bad game, even for children. For parents who are looking to get their little Star Wars fan a present, steer clear of this one.

    As a falling-down-a-cliff simulator, it's second to none. As fun software, fail, it does. [Dec 2009, p.85]
  14. Perhaps the younger gamers who are fans of the show will find something worthwhile here but the shallow gameplay will deter most.

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. Full Review »

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. Full Review »
