Star Wars: Republic Commando is my favorite Star Wars game, the main theme is Vode An.
This game came out in 2005, and was by LucasArts (they’ll be missed). In the game you’re a soldier fighting for the republic with a couple teammates !
There are spoilers following.
You start in Geneosis, just like in Clone Wars. You simply have to follow the linear story without really bothering about the several droids or oversized toasters.
It’s like they can really hurt you with your shield on.
You’re the commander of Delta squad and your “name” is RC-1138. You’re team is composed of 3 other members with nicknames: Scorch (RC-1162), Sev (RC-1207), Fixer (RC-1140).
After Geneosis you will investigate the Prosecutor, a spacecraft than went silent. Nothing really new since the game is still like a corridor.
The difference is about how you command your squad.
This is the last chapter, you’ll be visiting Kashyyyk since the wookies need your help. You’ll even catch a glimpse of General Grievous’ face and fight his guard while hunting down some Trandoshans.
Even if the multiplayer is not as played as Dota 2, Counter-Strike or any other games, it wasn’t half bad. Like for modern military shooters you had a primary weapon and a secondary, you had the three types of grenades from the story mode.
You also had to pick a side Republic or Trandoshan.
The game can still be fun with other people, but you’ll need to connect with an IP.
