When I first got this game 3-4 years back, I instantly fell in love with it and I still play it today. You command a small squad of elite clone troopers, which aren't just bumbling idiots like in some other games. In fact, your squad is extremely helpful. They will help you by destroying enemies and healing you when you are incapacitated. You can give them commands, and they all have their own special personality.

The graphics are just amazing. They are some of the best graphics I have seen on the Xbox console. Everything seems crisp and clear, and when you stab a droid with your knife oil splatters on your visor and is then wiped away.

From dialogue to gunshots, the sound is just amazing. The script is well written and you can connect to your squad. The sound is realistic and usually very clear.

The story is also exciting. It has many twists and turns, but I have seen better. But still the story is exciting and you should definitely follow it.

The AI is a strong point for this game. It is intelligent, so it takes cover all the time. If you go near an enemy it will try to punch you. They will also try to get into turrets and shoot down your squad. The AI always packs a challenge.

But those are just the strong points of the game. The campaign ends way too quickly and seems to end at a slight cliffhanger. Also, the multi-player isn't too great. It is fun, but nothing great.

All in all, this game is a must have. Everything about it is fun, and I would give it a 9.6 out of 10.

Glitch is back and I would like to talk about Star Wars: Republic commando. I have had this game for four years or so, and have replayed it about 10 times and still not losing intrest. If you ever get a game from the Star Wars line, make sure that it's this game. I swear that you will love this game and want to replay it again and again because for all you parents out there, it is not just mindless shooting, It also has tactical stratagy in it. Here's an example, Say you are on a republic command ship and the sepertist's are launching mini droind factories at you, they give you enough time to place traps or take cover, and you also have complete control over you're squad, telling them to take cover, place a trap, man a turret, or even revive another squad mate. See? It's not at all that bad, although you can run up to a droid for example and press the B button and you can stab them and oil will spill onto you're helmet screen, but it comes off. Same thing with alien blood, but it wipes off. It's a great game with great graphics and it has a high replay value, one of the best games of the centuriy!

TheTrooper34's review of republic commando

What is there to say about this game, well actually quite a lot.Republic commando is one of the best tactical shooters of it's time and even by current standards. The game plays magnificently, all the levels are well designed and are completely imersive. You will feel like you are fight the good fight for the galactic republic. Voice acting is great including voicing from boba fett and commander Cody himself.The AI is intuitive and realistic enemies will flee and occupy turrets one after another your squad mates are actually a help and will move up and take care of enemies on there own.The only downside is the length of the game even on the hardest difficulty the game won't last you more than a weekend. But it has nearly endless re playability so it is still definetly worth your time.
