  1. This game could easily win a title for the most extensive and absurd key assignments. You’d need Jedi fingers to play the game without a gamepad. There are far too many key combinations. The result: pure chaos.

    Colorful, short-lived and trivial platformer will delight the smallest of gamers only. No death sanction means no challenge and that’s boring. [Nov 2009]
  3. Disappointing controls, restricted gameplay and poor graphics are the key words of Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes.
  4. The game may be long but every level seems the same as the last, making it feel more like a repetitive endurance run than a game.

    Awful enough. [Jan 2010, p.80]
  6. It’s easier to escape death in a hyperdrive and chop twenty tons of scrap metal with a lightsaber than overcome boredom and finish Republic Heroes.
  7. This platformer based on the Star Wars cartoon TV series tries to copy the Lego game formula but gets just about everything wrong.

    A very good game. Great story, huge variety of playable characters, various challenges, and good levels. Graphically, it's true to the TVA very good game. Great story, huge variety of playable characters, various challenges, and good levels. Graphically, it's true to the TV series, using many of its assets. And it came out for PC, a move that I greatly appreciate.

    If you are a 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' fan, this is a must buy.

    This game was interesting for the first three levels untill you find that there is no freedom and that any of the unlockables are silly This game was interesting for the first three levels untill you find that there is no freedom and that any of the unlockables are silly looking hats or masks from the series. I would recommend that LucasArts go down to Mexico and have this brain child aborted before it destroys the franchise. Expand

    Regarding the DS version: Bad save points, obstacle courses and puzzles that expect you to correctly tap minuscule areas and buttons with Regarding the DS version: Bad save points, obstacle courses and puzzles that expect you to correctly tap minuscule areas and buttons with amazing precision the first time through, unlockables that have little to no value whatsoever... It's quite clear to me that this game was simply yet another cash-in on the Star Wars name. No matter how much your children beg you for this game, don't buy it. Pretty much the only good point here is that the touch screen is used slightly more effectively than the previous Clone Wars game. Not recommended whatsoever. Expand

    Lucas Arts was either brain dead by the time they made this game or just gave up on themselves because this game sucks. The game wasLucas Arts was either brain dead by the time they made this game or just gave up on themselves because this game sucks. The game was completely unimaginative and the characters are unbalanced (Padawan is stronger then Anakin, I swear...) and about as weak C-3PO. The environment was tiny and boring, and some maps tended to be ridiculously hard to complete. There was almost no story line but the graphics were okay. I recommend this game to the dump. Expand

    This game is the potentially most disappointing game I have ever played in the Star Wars series. Terrible graphics, unreplayability. Overall, This game is the potentially most disappointing game I have ever played in the Star Wars series. Terrible graphics, unreplayability. Overall, you'd have more fun writing a History essay than ever playing this game. Expand
