One of the best Star Wars genre games out there, most people don't know it though. They game has many string points however its negatives are extremely over whelming. For example which many people have stated is the painful cliffhanger in the story at the end of the game, now I won’t spoil it but it is frustrating that Lucas Arts hasn't made a sequel to the game yet. After many long months of crying I think I am over it, I think. Oh well you will get over it soon enough. Aside from that the single player is a great intense experience with lots of action story and tons of stuff to blow to Hell, The learning curve is really small and you can pick it up very quickly voice acting and sound effects are stunning the graphics are great but it feels that I it doesn’t take full advantage of the Unreal Engine. No as for the multiplayer, it is very fun to play it and is the reason I do play the game still to this day. However it seems they didn't put enough of an effort into the game as their are over dozens of glitches, no gamer tag system so players of this game are to depend on an in-game chat system called “X-fire” to avoid mistaken identities. Game lag is a constant issue in servers (what FPS doesn’t have lag though) and in game console commands are available to anyone. And one big issue in the game seems to be a major imbalance in power of the weapons in the game such as the Concussion rifle which is a one hit kill sniper weapon with area damage, if that isn’t over powered I don’t know what is. However most of these issues are a simple thorn in the online world of this game. A large issue in this game though is the dying community, many gaming clans have shut down where in the launch their were nearly several hundred, now to this day only a handful remain. But if you are just looking for a unique experience look no further, Republic Commando certainly is one of those few games with something special to it.
