Probably my new favourite game.
I passed up Republic Commando when it first came out, due to my stupid child mind thinking Star Wars could not be good without Jedi. Oh how I was wrong. Republic Commando takes your generic Space Marine-esque Clone Troopers and makes them something special. You play as the leader of a four-man squad of elite troopers known as Delta Squad. As 38, you command 07, 40 and 62 in a Journey through the barren planet of Geonosis to the forests of Kashyyk. What the real highlight of is comes down to your squad of soldiers and how you control them. Your most basic commands use F1 - F4, with "Search and Destroy", "Form up", "Hold This Position" etc. Throughout the maps there are points you can highlight your troops to use. Bacta tanks for healing, sniping positions, grenade positions. You can get them to slice doors or breach them, bomb stuff or do it yourself. The AI of Delta Squad was well ahead of it's time and is still impressive to this day. Each and every member of Delta Squad does one thing better than any other Space Marine in any game though, and that is their personality. Each member of Delta Squad has a distinct and likable personality, 07 being a gruff, maybe insane hunter, 62 being often childish and 40.... well 40 lacks in that department sadly.
The levels of Republic Commando are intricate and amazingly well designed. The game is extremely challenging and points but ever so rewarding at the same time. You get four base weapons and can pick up a fifth, of which there are a multitude of to use. You have your base Pistol, a clone trooper rifle thingy, a sniper rifle and a grenade launcher thingerjig. Then you can get miniguns, SMG's, energy shotguns etc to fill your Fifth slot, which you can change up at will. The FPS and tactics parts of Republic Commando work together extremely well and create a satisfying and fantastic game.
