Star Wars: Republic Commando wasn't only one of the best Star Wars first-person shooters ever made, it was also the darkest.
I loved that game!!! Had it on the 1st Gen Xbox.
I have been wanting a new Republic Commando for years. Its a shame that hasn't happened yet.
One the most underrated games ever and one of my all time faves.
Why there has not been a seq to this is absolutely mind boggling. The stupidity of the folks at Lucasarts was absolutely amazing. A studio with arguably the most iconic licenses in the world and they could not turn out a title of high quality to save their lives. Force Unleashed had a great story, but the bugs and lack of optimization were really really bad.
I remember looking into that myself when writing my Lucasarts blog on here. Basically Lucasarts' entry into 7th gen was a management mess: the studio kept getting smaller, management kept going through different bosses--which interfered with Battlefront III eventual cancellation, and so on. It's a shame they went out this way.
Totally agree, and unfortunately as much as we may be enjoying BF right now the video of what was being created last gen on older hardware BLOWS IT AWAY. A casualty of the mess at Lucasarts.
Great game. Tactical FPS games were top notch at the time
Enjoyed playing online on that game
I bought an xbox back in the day just for that game.
One of my favourite FPS games period. Will probably play it again in December to prepare myself for 'The Force Awakens', even though this game has no relation to it. It still sucks that it's never going to get a sequel. Curse you, LucasArts/Disney! I mean, it's possible for EA to reboot it, but let's be honest? Do EA ever listen?
