Our examiner, Ben Kendall, first checked Star Wars: Republic Commando 2 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 4 months ago.
Additionally, its unique place among Star Wars games, eschewing traditional tropes such as lightsabers and space battles for more realistic and militaristic war scenarios, make it stand out from the crowd. A remastered version, sporting updated visuals and controls, launched for the Switch and Playstation on the 6th of April 2021.
You play RC-1138, "Boss", the leader of Delta Squad, an elite squad of genetically altered clone troopers, during the height of the Clone Wars (between Star Wars: Episode II and Episode III). You travel from planet to planet, on various missions, assassinations and investigations.
You shoot mechanical enemies using the wide array of weapons at your disposal, and direct your computer-controlled team members to perform various tasks, from "slicing" (the Star Wars version of hacking) to taking up a suitable sniping position.
The game's varied environments mean your tactics must respond. For example, while in one place you may need a patient approach, another location may require a more direct attack. The rest of your team, RC-1162 (Scorcher), 1140 (Fixer) and 1107 (Sev) all have unique specialities that you'll need to use to succeed, and some missions will require you to split up.
Its unique place among Star Wars games, as well as its focus on strategy and tactics, make it an unusual offering. It's a fun and rewarding challenge for both Star Wars fans and players alike.
