Republic Commando is a good first person shooter. It is a nice deviation not playing a jedi in Star Wars Game.

"Game play: The three locations are broken down into multiple submissions and levels, but overall the game is extremely short. On medium (default) difficulty I was able to finish the game in around 7 hours. There where a couple locations where you had to beat the clock that hung me up for a while, but overall the game play wasn't overly difficult. Your squad mates, consisting of 3 A.I. commandos, are extremely capable fighters, who you can issue orders, or allow to do their own thing. Either way they tend to be smart about how they approach battle, and generally are there to bail you out when you get your self incapacitated. As apposed to the A.I. of your enemies and they are relatively unintelligent. They rely on numbers, or sure power of their weapons, but generally do not attempt to find cover, or support each other. Regardless of this discrepancy in the A.I. the game was enjoyable while it lasted. I found the interface for issuing orders to be simplistic, and easy to use. There weren't many elaborate commands, you merely look at objects, if they have an icon for use, you click your use key and a commando will go and do what ever action is supported by the object you were looking at. for example if the object is a turret, the commando will man the turret, if the object is some ruble with a sniper icon, a commando will deploy a sniper rifle at that location, so on and so forth." "Graphics: Republic Commando uses the Unreal engine to support its graphics. Granted the Unreal engine is becoming more and more obsolescent, the game still looks very good."
"Sound FX: The Sound effects in the game are top of the line. The voice acting is of high quality, the main character is voiced by Temuere Morrison, The actor who played Jango Fett in the movies."
"Replay Value: The game does have some replay value, in its multiplayer, it supports Death match, Team death match, and Capture the flag. If interest in the game grows there should be plenty of people playing online to get a lot more playing time out of the game, but singly player even if you play it through 3 times will only get you about 20 hours."
