Developed by: LucasArts - LucasArts (2005) - Squad-Based Shooter - Rated: Teen
Star Wars: Republic Commando is a squad-based shooter played from a first-person perspective. Taking place during the time of
the Clone Wars, Republic Commando casts players in the role of a Republic Special Operations unit as they prepare to lead a team
of white armored soldiers across different worlds to investigate disturbances from an unidentified alien threat. As opposed to the
adventure elements found in LucasArts' Jedi Knight series, Republic Commando emphasizes military combat not unlike Tom
Clancy's Ghost Recon, albeit in a futuristic setting. Players will arm themselves with an array of high-powered weapons and use
their computer-enhanced visor displays to coordinate attacks, issue commands, and reposition the group to neutralize the
potentially hostile threats encountered during missions. The game makes use of Epic Games' Unreal technology to deliver a
dynamic environment as seen through the eyes of an elite clone trooper.
The game features some gameplay elements that resemble features in other first-person shooters, including Metroid Prime, Halo,
and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six. The Heads-Up Display (HUD) in the game resembles the Metroid Prime helmet display. The
context-based squad order system is similar to the Rainbow Six games. The usage of health and recharging shields, as well as the
general combat gameplay, resemble styles seen in Halo 2. An unusual feature is that blood, or any fluid from a dead enemy that
will splash onto the helmet, can slightly affect vision until an energy based "windshield wiper" cleans it off.
In single player mode, the player and squadmates do not die when they run out of health, but rather are incapacitated. If the
player character is downed, the player can order the squad members to attempt to revive the player or to continue with their
current orders. Therefore, the game is only truly over when the player and all members of the squad are incapacitated at once.
While reviving a downed commando restores a small amount of health, bacta charging stations are necessary to fully regain
it.Republic Commando maintains a first-person perspective throughout the game, presenting the story from the eyes of Delta 38.
Multiplayer: The game features a multiplayer mode for Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Assault, and Capture the Flag gameplay,
with Xbox Live support for 16 players on the Xbox, and 32 for PC over the Internet.
