Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Republic Heroes is an action-adventure video game developed by LucasArts Singapore and Krome Studios, published by LucasArts, and released for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PSP, PlayStation 2 (in the US only) and Nintendo DS. The game is a tie-in to The Clone Wars television series and was released on October 6, 2009, receiving generally negative reviews.
Plot[edit | edit source]
A brand-new storyline takes the player on a multi-faceted adventure to stop a mysterious techno assassin's destructive plot. The game takes place between the first and second season of the television series. The game's primary antagonists are bounty hunter Cad Bane, Skakoan mercenary Kul Teska and Sith Lord Count Dooku along with his apprentice Asajj Ventress.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The game allows players to play as Jedi Knights, clone troopers and other characters, and contains 40 missions. The game has a similar visual look to the series it is based on. The feel of the game is similar to LucasArts' 2005 video game, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and the LEGO Star Wars series. The game also features a drop in/drop out co-op mode.
Reception[edit | edit source]
Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Republic Heroes scored generally negative reviews. Chris Roper of IGN gave the game a 4.8/10, starting his review by saying “The first thing you'll notice is that pretty much regardless of which system you play it on, it looks rather terrible.” Roper then goes on to say “About five seconds after you notice how bad it looks, you'll realize that the game's platforming elements are unresponsive and oftentimes frustrating.” He closed his review stating that “Unless you or your kids want to play as Jedi or clone troopers just for the sake of doing so, then there's really nothing here that'll keep anyone, young or old, interested for very long.” Roper recommended playing a Lego Star Wars: The Video Game title instead.
