Score distribution:

  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.

    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

    They better make a second one. The ending's a heckuva cliffhanger...

The graphics don't age that badly the gun play is good the squad mechanics are not very deep but are enjoyable and it probably helps that im a Star Wars fan. On the flip side theirs a real lack in weapon verity especially early game. Our main charterers weren't very memorable for me and the whole last world felt a lot weaker in a lot of aspects compared to the one before. That being said i think the game is still worth checking out for first person shooter fans and Star Wars fan. And i think it's worth getting a sequel or maybe a remake some day. Expand

    J'y avais joué un peu à l'époque, puis je l'avais laissé de côté... autant par pur désintérêt que parce que dans le même temps, d'autresJ'y avais joué un peu à l'époque, puis je l'avais laissé de côté... autant par pur désintérêt que parce que dans le même temps, d'autres choses étaient sans doute sorties... moins rébarbatives ! et là je relance le truc, d'autant qu'il marche sur la Xbox One via le programme de rétro-compatibilité mis en place sur un certain nombre de jeux... dont quelques vieilleries Xbox... pas "one" mais "première" ou le "magnétoscope" comme on l'appelait alors volontiers...

    Quoi qu'il en soit, ce pseudo-jeu de tir tactique (?) n'a rien de vraiment tactique (sauf si appuyer sur A le devient...) et à cet égard les Mass Effect étaient bien plus tactiques avec des "ordres qui comptent vraiment" que ce Republic Commando incroyablement bourrin et répétitif ! et qui ne ressemble en fait qu'à une sorte de Call of Duty sous un gros maquillage Star Wars.

    Le jeu a vieilli évidemment mais la résolution augmentée permet d'y jouer à peu près correctement ; on regrette néanmoins les textures qui sont restées toutes pourries... L'ambiance sonore de qualité (calquée sur 'l'attaque des clones") est sympathique mais finit par taper un peu sur le système... mais surtout le nombre d'ennemis qui n'arrête pas de nous tomber dessus devient insupportablement lourdingue.

    D'autant que le flingue, cette espèce de mitraillette qui tire n'importe où n'importe comment est elle aussi insupportable (c'est pour ça que les héros ne sont jamais touchés dans les films alors qu'on voit des lasers dans tous les sens). Pour ne rien arranger, ces insectes et quelques robots sont des éponges à lasers : ils mangent des chargeurs entiers... avant de trépasser. Eventuellement.

    Donc voilà, on l'a bien compris et d'ailleurs la première impression reste très souvent la bonne, c'est-à-dire la mauvaise ici : Republic Prout, c'était et c'est toujours de la merde !
