Game Informer Magazine
Even if your child runs around the house, yelling, “I love Snips!” this title’s frustrating gameplay will be a hard sell. If you have such a child in your household, I would do everything in my power to ensure they never catch wind of this game. Moreover, I would correct the “I love Snips” error through Clockwork Orange-like viewings of the original trilogy.

La última propuesta en forma de videojuego del universo Star Wars es un título que no aprovecha, ni por asomo, la potencia de las consolas de nueva generación, en una época en la que la alta definición está en el orden del día. Pero, además, constituye un juego de acción aburrido e insulso, con poca variedad de contenidos y gran repetición de los mismos durante toda la aventura. Las posibilidades de jugar en un multijugador cooperativo junto a otro jugador mejoran un tanto las opciones jugables del título, aunque no se bastan por sí solas para convertir a un título mediocre en algo que valga realmente la pena. Una lástima: las Guerras Clon, uno de los episodios seguramente más importantes de la saga Star Wars, probablemente se merecían algo mucho mejor.

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.

Whether you've got a friend playing with you or not, Republic Heroes likely won't hold your interest the entire way through. Sure, the game is fairly long, but every level feels the same as the last, as you kill wave after wave of the same few droids types and continue to fight with the game's biggest challenge: its poorly implemented platform jumping. Being able to play as both Jedi and Clone Troopers was an interesting idea and one that I think could have worked, I only wish it had been tried in a better Star Wars game.

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. Mais qui serait assez bête pour acheter les yeux fermés tout ce qui porte le nom Star Wars ? Sûrement pas vous n'est-ce pas ? En espérant que vous ne nous fassiez pas mentir...

I get the feeling that development on Star Wars: The Clone Wars may have been rushed to coincide with the release of the second season of the show, which is kind of a shame because there is a lot potential in the concepts behind it. But a family-friendly game really needs to be accessible to kids first and foremost but still fun for adults as well, which is what made the Lego Star Wars games so much fun to play. But all the platform follies you’ll face playing this game take away that accessibility. I think if they’d been given another month or two to put another coat of paint on this one, we may have seen something really fun that would’ve pleased fans of all ages. As it stands now though, the Dark Side of the Force clouds everything.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Republic Heroes is een matige game geworden die vol met fouten zit. De gameplay is herhalend en hapert af en toe behoorlijk, vaak blijft de camera hangen zodat je gewoon niet goed ziet waar je heen moet en soms heb je geen idee wat je nu precies moet doen in een bepaalde omgeving. Daartegenover staat nog wel dat de sfeer en het verhaal goed bij de bestaande tv-serie past. Star Wars is een van mijn favoriete filmseries ooit en er zijn ook echt goede spellen verschenen, maar Republic Heroes doet simpelweg teveel fout om ook maar een voldoende te scoren.

In the game's defence, hearing the voice actors reprise their roles from the animated series will help convince young Clone Wars fans that what they're playing is the real deal, despite the fact that the dialogue, especially Yoda's, is terrible (hearing Yoda say “Droid-Jak” is particularly soul destroying). And while the graphics are uninspiring and bland, they're at least designed in the same Cartoon Network anime style as the show. But these slight positives are unceremoniously blasted into oblivion by the unresponsive controls and awful platforming. It's obvious that adult gamers should avoid Republic Heroes. But, more damning, it's also impossible to recommend it to anyone wondering whether they should buy it for a young fan of The Clone Wars.

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.

Sorte de resucée sans humour ni personnalité de la formule des LEGO Star Wars, avec coop à deux sur un même écran uniquement et réalisation tout juste correcte, le titre de Krome Studios est parfaitement résumé par une réplique d'Obi-Wan en début de partie : "La qualité leur importe peu, ils comptent simplement nous écraser sous le nombre".

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. Right from first touch, it's clear that Republic Heroes hasn't undergone nearly enough of this sort of testing, and the uninspired foundations are further compromised as they are built upon. As a result, this is a product that will make children frustrated and unhappy, the very opposite of that to which Star Wars should aspire.

Star Wars The Clone Wars: Gli Eroi della Repubblica è chiaramente un prodotto che punta a suscitare l’interesse di bambini e di veri appassionati del brand, ma purtroppo, alla luce dei suoi tanti difetti, non di dimostra adatto né agli uni né agli altri. L’eccessiva semplicità, unità alla totale mancanza di stimoli, rende infatti l’esperienza di gioco una vera e propria tortura, una tortura che difficilmente qualcuno sarà in grado di sopportare… soprattutto un bambino.

Even if you do like the cartoon, though, I urge you to avoid Republic Heroes. Its basic design philosophy is one of laziness and glossing over problems rather than really putting out the effort to make a decent game. That's a bitter pill to swallow for a kid who just shelled out 50 bucks of lunch money.
