In the latest Star Wars-themed first-person shooter, you take on the role of an elite Republic commando, tasked with going behind enemy lines and causing a whole bunch of mayhem. GameSpot's Game Guide will give you a full walk-through, tips for controlling your squad, and detailed looks at all of the game's many weapons and enemies.
Star Wars: Republic Commando is a rarity in Star Wars gaming, in that it features no Jedi, no lightsabers, no major characters from the films, and yet still manages to create a compelling adventure despite the lack of most of the elements people normally associate with the Star Wars license, thanks to gameplay that's tightly focused on squad-based combat and tactical combat solving.
In it, you take on the role of RP-1138, an elite member of a commando squadron of the Republic Army. Unlike most of the members of the clone army, you've distinguished yourself in training and have molded yourself into a perfect combat machine. Your commanders have recognized that mere gruntwork would be a waste of your talents, and have thus assigned you to lead a team consisting of yourself and three other highly-trained and talented soldiers. Your mission? To strike deep behind enemy lines, assassinate enemy leaders, disable their infrastructure, and generally harry their abilities to make war on the Republic.
