We Can Never Truly Leave the Clone Wars Behind
It’s that time of year again. Time for a blast from the Star Wars past. Star Wars Republic Commando is now available for digital purchase on Nintendo Switch and PS4–in other words, this classic tactical shooter is now back as a single-player game on modern consoles. Star Wars fans everywhere, rejoice, because it’s time for another trip to the Old Republic. We think we speak for everyone when we say that this crumbling failure of a space democracy is by far the most interesting setting in the franchise, and possibly the entire sci-fi genre. Take the lead of Delta Squad, a team of clones assigned as elite Republic Commandos, and get ready to infiltrate and eliminate a variety of foes. Remember, teamwork makes the dream work.
Game features include:
- Welcome to the Clone Wars: Chaos has erupted throughout the galaxy. As leader of an elite squad of Republic Commandos, your mission is to infiltrate, dominate, and ultimately annihilate the enemy.
- Battle Relentless Enemies: Battle a variety of highly intelligent and deadly enemies—from brutal Trandoshan mercenaries to the flying insectoid warriors of Geonosis.
- The Squad is Your Weapon: Your squad will follow your orders, performing complex commands and strategic maneuvers. You are their leader. They are your weapon.
All in all, it’s a solid game with a solid premise. Why not revisit an old classic while we all wait on the new open-world Star Wars game coming from Ubisoft? With KOTOR 2 coming to mobile soon, it’s the time to indulge in old favorites from a galaxy far, far away.
Star Wars Republic Commando is now available on Nintendo Switch and PS4 for $14.99.
