Also...I really don't remember the graphics being this, well...not good. Or have we just come a really long way in visual quality of games since this was released?

I really like this game when it came out. The squad mechanic were very intuitive and easy which gave it a good flow and of course it's SW so the atmosphere was great.

But man for a 2005 game the graphics don't seem to have aged well at all!

This game is Awesome! But such a waste when you play on the lowest difficulty like this guy just stabbing his way to the missions without using the numerous tactical commands at your disposal which is really what makes this game so awesome.

Not the best way to show off such an amazing tactical shooter

God this game is amazing, the campaign is inspiring; some game suggestions are: Star Ocean: The Second Stage [1998] and Actraiser II [1993].

I almost like everything in Star Wars, except for the films, which is somewhat ironic. This was a fantastic game, and while I only beat it twice around the time I played it at launch, I actually do go back to it for a few hours once in a while. I bought it on Xbox long after I originally played it, and I got it on Steam; I never beat it again though. They could totally update this game and it'd still feel great. This is one of those games that needs a sequel, along with Freedom Fighters and have have you.

"Everyone dies, everyone dies! Killed the operator...but he wasn't a smooth operator now was he guys!"

Comic gold. I wish Danny would stop calling in to work sick, this is the only Gamespot show I can stand watching. Well, that and 'Falling in Love With Lara/Chivalry'...

Great show Danny, as always! Random Encounter = The best show on Gspot!

How about playing, in honor of the new movie, the really old PS1 EVIL DEAD game!

@ZachBobBob I don't think the mind remembers fuzzy textures low poly models and jagged edges very well.

@ZachBobBob I remember thinking this looked amazing back in 2005......admittedly the HUD windscreen wipers still do.

@Konuvis Well, SW Republic Commando did not have the best graphics around in 2005. Half Life 2 and Doom 3 were both from 2004 and had better graphics... Riddick Escape from Butcher Bay too.

@wusaier I question your concept of "super visual effects" considering that the graphics in Age of Wushu are subpar at best and the animations aren't any better than the animations of other MMOs, especially considering they don't have any actual meaning.

The only unique thing AoW offers is its minigames (which range from tons of fun team practice to a horrendous taken on guitar hero). and jumping.

@whackyq

The sequel should be Star Wars Imperial Commando. It would take place between episodes 3 and 4 and you'd be hunting down the last of the Jedi.

@_Judas_ Don't forget the Super Star Wars games on SNES. They were pretty great even if they were about the hardest games I've ever played.

@dannyodwyer @Hjindee yeah that game is one of the better games of this world, even if some will argue the story was kinda meh. Let's be serious....ROPE BOW kk. I remember it was a bugfest at lunch. 

Good show congratz.
