Episode Summary

Star Wars: Republic Commando, Heritage of Kings, Cold Fear and more!
On tonight's episode of X-Play, we review Star Wars: Republic Commando. A long time ago, in a galaxy not far away, flooding the market with substandard licensed games was as common as a wookiee in need of a flea dip. Yet we are now in the golden age of electronic entertainment, where a movie-inspired game does not necessarily mean that quality has tumbled into the carbon-freezing chamber. Star Wars: Republic Commando is the first in an armada of Star Wars-based titles planned for 2005, not coincidentally in preparation for the final film in the sci-fi series. Given the intense pressure for developers to churn out marketable Star Wars product, Republic Commando could easily become the equivalent of bantha poodoo stuck on the rusty treads of a jawa sandcrawler. Fortunately, that’s not the case.moreless
