    If you’ve never played République before, this is the best way to experience it. If you have, I’d say the graphical improvements alone make it worth a second look.

    The game has a compelling atmosphere and very good writing, and although there are some slight technical issues that pop up from time to time, they are easily cast aside by the immersive quality of the experience.

    I first came across Republique when it was a one-button game on iPad. Now, after revisiting its “1984” inspired world in a remastered edition, I can assure you that the game also works great on PC. [06/2015, p.70]

    The three playable of five planned episodes in this nicely written stealth-adventure offers great storytelling and a believable main character. The stealth-mechanics combine sneaky moments with some optional action-gameplay. The dystopian setting gives you the feeling of playing George Orwell's “1984” alive. Graphics with Unity 5 Engine are good, the voice-acting of the main characters is great. Some lacking aspects in AI-failure and the more linear level-design can make you feel a little bit disappointed. But in the end it’s a quite entertaining and well done iOS-port to PC.

    It is the storytelling that keeps Republique interesting. The stealth mechanics are not up to common standards, but the dystopian setting manages to salvage a lot.

    The game’s enclosed environments were clearly designed with smaller screens in mind, and on such mobile platforms, its production values set it apart from a great swath of its competitors.

    The quality of the world created is on par with the Bioshock games (which I loved). I care about Hope and the characters of this game. TheThe quality of the world created is on par with the Bioshock games (which I loved). I care about Hope and the characters of this game. The stealth element is suitable for this world and adds tension. The voice acting couldn't be better. This game suspends my disbelief, which is the best thing you can say about a piece of entertainment. Can't wait for the final two chapters to see what happens to these characters I love. Expand

I have been playing for about 2 1/2 hrs and am diggin' every minute to it. The story is compelling and I am anxious to see how this is all going to turn out. Not to mention, fun and stealthy! Just the way I like it. Very happy with this game! :) Expand

    I took a risk in buying this game but i am so glad i did. For and IOS port it's still gorgeous by PC standards with smooth, tense gameplayI took a risk in buying this game but i am so glad i did. For and IOS port it's still gorgeous by PC standards with smooth, tense gameplay with solid animations and lip syncing. The storytelling and writing is the best i have seen from a game this year. This is helped by the amazing voice acting from Jennifer Hale (Mass Effect), David Hayter (Metal Gear) and a first time video game performance from Rena Strober who does an excellent job as Hope the main character. I can not wait for the next 2 episodes and i would definitely recommend this to someone who enjoys an engaging story in a very atmospheric world. Expand
