  1. The audio, just like the visuals, is terrific. The ambience of battle, the Star Wars music, the sounds from droids and aliens; everything is done so well. You feel as though you're actually there in a scene from a Star Wars movie.
  2. 88
    The game's artificial intelligence is impressive, and utilising the commands and setting team command points through the levels really makes it feel like you're working through the game with real people who actually know what they are doing.
  3. Tactical, yet just as fun as any single-player romp, skillfully laid out and nicely scored, Star Wars: Republic Commando lives up to its billing and them some. [March 2005, p.55]
  4. 80
    An excellent first start for a spin-off series, with a strong action element bolstered by a great sense of atmosphere that makes replaying campaigns on different difficulty levels a treat rather than a chore.
  5. 80
    While the game's single player component is fully realized (though far too short), the multiplayer side of things feels tacked-on. It's almost as if the developers, fearing that a game without Xbox Live play wouldn't sell well, added the bare bones modes as an afterthought.
  6. It's great that you can run and gun without too much squad-commanding hassle, but SW:RC's simplicity is its biggest problem. Gamers hoping to give their brain a workout will be disappointed - the tactical options are rudimentary and the weapon selection is poor.
  7. Where Ubisoft's teams have exponentially raised the bar for squad-based titles, the LucasArts kowtowers have inconsolably brought the entry level down. Troops: step forward and press 'A' at my command. [Sir, yes sir!]

    This is one of the funnest games I have ever played. I love Star Wars, and Star Wars games, and I have to say: this game is one of the best I This is one of the funnest games I have ever played. I love Star Wars, and Star Wars games, and I have to say: this game is one of the best I have seen. The strategy, action, and intense heart-pounding fight for survival makes every part of this game enjoyable. I became totally mesmorized and fascinated by the amazing graphics and team AI. This game was very well made and I had a blast when playing it. My only complaint was that the game was too short! Overall, it is an awesome game that any Star Wars fanatic, any first-person-shooter game addict, and any passionate gamer will love. Expand

    Impressive squad AI, great sound and graphics, and smooth control. As with most shooters coming out as of late, way too short!

    It is so awsome,but i just wish the squad was a litter smarter like when you order them to 'secure area' that there is only two It is so awsome,but i just wish the squad was a litter smarter like when you order them to 'secure area' that there is only two cover spots so 40 and 62 take cover while 07 just stands there and gets shot,and the sad way 07 dies on kashyyyk because you can grab sniper and look at 07 across from you and he will be fine..no blaster shots,no screaming ...he still in the freakin' turret! But it is a wicked and kool game because it has a good story like Star Wars knights of the old republic but i really respect the fighting scenes. still i want a sequil !A+!!! Expand
