Review: STAR WARS: REPUBLIC COMMANDO Seems To Be Missing Some Squad Memebers

This is a re-release of the game, not a remaster. And while some of the Frame rates and character models are much smoother, the textures and character models are still extremely clunky and show some of the ugliest sides of the generation. It’s definitely playable and was a good looking game for its day, but it hasn’t aged well. I would have loved a full remaster with some Battlefront 2 level graphics, but there are no plans for that at the moment.

The main issue to be had with this port is the total lack of multiplayer. While the game was built mainly as a single player game, the multiplayer added a lot of extra hours to the game’s life. While some people might not have ever played the multiplayer modes in the past, it was surprisingly good and is pretty unfortunate to have such a bare bones port come to modern consoles, especially because online co-op or online multiplayer could’ve helped this game thrive for a while.

If you were a fan of the original Republic Commando game and you want to play through the campaign again, then this is a fine way to do it. The lack of multiplayer from the original version is particularly odd because the graphical update is quite minimal. For fans of the game or lovers of shooters AND Star Wars, this might be worth it, but otherwise, there are many other, better things to spend your time and money on.
