Star Wars Republic Commando is an fps game released in the star wars universe in 2005. In 2015 it still remains one of the best Star War games ever to be created and im trully sad to admit, i didnt appreciate it in its time of release. Back at the time i felt the game was really hard even on normal and i couldnt get accustomised with the various game mechanics. Now that im a bit older (but certaintly not wiser ^^), i came to appreciate this awesome title in all its grandeur.
In this game you play the leader of a republic commando team, whose purpose is espionage,sabotage and advanced reconnaisssance. Obviously stealth is out of the question for like 95% of the game but the rest are yours for the making. Your team includes 3 more members each specializing in its own field. You get your sniper, your demo man and your enginneer as well. Throughout the game you are called to make tactical decisions and place your team8s around the field, in order to maximize your chances of survival and win your confrontations. Its sounds easy to do and at first it is, but as the game evolves your desicions must evolve as well. All and all that was one aspect i enjoyed the most in this game.
As with any good fps, you get to use a lot of different weapons and grenades and you can further enchance your own weapons to meet any kind of enemy. From the simple laser pistol to a full rocket launcher, this game has it all and more.
In terms of gameplay difficulty, the game is not as hard as you might think, but its harder that most of todays standard measures. You dont get to do rambo stuff, cause you will be facing the ground and w8 for your m8s to revive you and that is really nervebreaking. All the levels have a linear design as well, so you wont miss your next objective. Maybe for most that is considered a down, but i think it works pretty well for this game.
The graphics arent on par with todays standards, but you can modify the texture pack anyway you like and you can increase the games resolution as well. On the plus side even if you dont it still looks ♥♥♥♥ing awesome. And as with any star wars game that respects itself, the audio is one of the best things in this game. Everything from the tiniest footstep to the biggest blast has been exceptional and thats something i cant say for most games these days.The dialogues are grimm and funny at the same time and the voices seem to match everyone and everything in this game.
All and all i recommend this game to everyone. If you are a fan of fps you will love it, if you are a fan of star wars you will love it even more and even if you dont like fps try it. You will love it too!!!
