If you’re hoping this game falls into the “I’ll suffer playing it for a good story” category, I have even worse news for you. The plot introduces a likable villain named Kul Teska (created by LucasArts for the game), yet doesn’t take any of the characters in interesting directions. It ends up being a story of good trying to stop evil and nothing more.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes is the Jar-Jar Binks of 3D platformers. Even the most diehard Star Wars fan will have a hard time stomaching this disappointing effort. All of the control problems, confusing level design, and weird camera positions create a perfect storm of stupid that makes for one spectacularly frustrating platformer.
Unless you or your kids want to play as Jedi or clone troopers just for the sake of doing so, then there's really nothing here that'll keep anyone, young or old, interested for very long. Even if it does, you or your kin are bound to be frustrated at numerous sections and will likely wind up putting down the controller sooner or later. If you want a good family-oriented Star Wars game, you're still way better off with the LEGO Star Wars titles.
To simply state that Krome Studios should have worked harder to replicate Traveller's Tales various successes is perhaps to undermine what the LEGO developer has achieved. Good game design for children is difficult and demands not only diligence and inspiration at the planning stage, but also an awful lot of observation of how children react as they play.
La mediocridad es la palabra más recurrente a la hora de describir Star Wars The Clone Wars: Héroes de la República. Demasiado simple para los adultos, demasiado pobre y con un control tremendamente impreciso para los más pequeños de la casa… Una aburrida y repetitiva oportunidad perdida.
En confiant son jeu à Krome Studios, LucasArts a, semble-t-il, fait le mauvais choix. Privilégiant la quantité (des séquences) à la qualité, Star Wars The Clone Wars : Les Héros de la République ne parvient quasiment jamais à capter notre attention à cause de nombreux défauts de construction et de jouabilité. Dommage surtout que, du coup, rien ne légitime le prix de vente si ce n'est la franchise.
