  1. The Clone Wars – Republic Heroes is not convincing. Enthusiastic Star Wars fans and younger gamers may take a look, for the rest we can’t recommend to spend money on it.

    Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes looks like a previous-gen title and doesn't convince content-wise either. A lousy camera, stubborn controls make the eternal stream of lives a must. It feels kiddy and your friend's AI is so bad that you thank the heavens for its co-op ability. With the sheer volume of hit games coming, we fear that Lucas won't be able to find a lot of gamers willing to purchase this game.

    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.
  4. Many parts of this game seems to be rushed during development. Poor controls and that camera is pretty annoying. On the good sides are the epic music and those great voice actors.
  5. We just wish the designers paid more attention to the controls and did something dramatic with the gameplay. Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes is a below average adventure that's difficult to recommend, even as a rental. We suggest Force pushing it into a galaxy far, far away.
  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.

    The worst Star Wars game ever, and that's really saying something. [Christmas 2009, p.84]

    A good idea, after setting the game is nice to use with modern features such as friendly clones and machines that can be blasting them outA good idea, after setting the game is nice to use with modern features such as friendly clones and machines that can be blasting them out soon and without problem. Not needing to then there is no reason to smash the robots then. Kind of charming though eh. Expand

    I can't really see why this game gets so low scores, I really can't. I have the PC version, and with everything on full, the game I can't really see why this game gets so low scores, I really can't. I have the PC version, and with everything on full, the game looks almost to a point of the Clone Wars TV show running on various channles. There are minor problems with the controls, but you can overcome that pretty fast. The other thing that could have been better are the camera, but it's not as bad as some people say, I've seen worse than this in some other games...
