Geek: Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes (Wii) Review

Out of the entire Lord of the Rings movie trilogy one part always stood out to me as being particularly preposterous. During a major battle scene at the end of The Two Towers Gimli (the dwarf) and Legoloas (the elf) start killing orcs and tallying up the total, as it if was some sort of game. This sort of comedic relief not only takes away from the consequence of the battle but it basically ensures that neither of them is going to die–after all, they are concentrate on their "who is the better killer" game while the battle ensues. Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes takes this mechanic, the minimalizing of combat to nothing more than tallying up of points, and make an entire game around it.

The story is too old to be commented.
