Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes
 
Entertainment Weekly apparently got an exclusive first look at a new Star Wars game in the works and has posted a trailer for the game on their website. According to ew.com Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes is scheduled for a September 15 release and will allow gamers to play both Jedi and clone trooper characters. Krome Studios is listed as developer for Republic Heroes.

The big shocker for me came at the end of the video trailer when I saw the Games for Windows Live logo. LucasArts is going to release a game for the PC?! :eyepop Whoa! Stop the presses! In addition to PC the game also looks like it will be coming to Playstation, Nintendo Wii and DS, and Xbox 360 platforms.

ugh... could they possibly NOT base everything on The Clone Wars? Also, Krome Studios = Fail.

DarthParametric 05-09-2009 11:53 AM

Not much game footage, but what there was doesn't look all that promising. Kinda looks like a Clone Wars version of Lego Star Wars. Lame platforming and multiple characters.

Miltiades 05-09-2009 01:58 PM

I wasn't going to read further, until I saw "PC". But no... not interested.

Creativity is obviously no longer a factor in LucasArts' games. I don't have a single ounce of interest in this.

Will O' The Wisq 05-09-2009 03:50 PM

This looked like crap...
But I'm not pre-judging

Boba Rhett 05-09-2009 03:57 PM

Holy Crap. Clone Wars based AND made by Krome? A double shot fail? :(



Did Krome give them a buy one get one free coupon?

LordOfTheFish 05-09-2009 04:26 PM

This is embarrassing. :carms:

I could QFT this, but it would do the comment absolutely no justice. Shame on you, ex-LA.

Lynk, you ***hole, you stole those words from my brain... gimme back my brain >:[

Jeff 05-09-2009 07:10 PM

I'd be willing to give this a chance but the fact that they went back to Krome Studios after a disappointing version of TFU and the terrible Clone Wars for Wii is disturbing. Those games did not get good reviews at all, makes me wonder if they even care about that as long as it sells well.

Chill. Those reviews were overrated. PS2's TFU is actually way worse.

Jeff 05-09-2009 08:12 PM

TFU for PS2 was the same as the Wii version minus motion controls and multiplayer, and also developed by Krome Studios.

CommanderQ 05-09-2009 10:19 PM

Why does Lucas Arts continue to try this Clone Wars franchise, they are not exactly heading in the right direction with the majority of their sales{which is probably not in the Clone Wars Franchise}

Frankly, this game does not look like it will be a huge success. Lucas Arts...why?:(

Boba Rhett 05-09-2009 10:53 PM

Me thinks Clone Wars stuff is selling like crack laced ice cream cones to a certain age bracket.

Yeah, that bad. I think the graphics were also a lil' bit worse too, but I can't say for sure.

I lol'd

Moeller you funny ^_^

Jeff 05-10-2009 12:42 AM

Well I know they don't care if it's not what we the dedicated fanbase want, but one would think they'd at least prefer favorable reviews. :/

Boba Rhett 05-10-2009 01:18 AM

Money tastes better than reviews.

Lynk Former 05-10-2009 03:16 AM

These games don't actually sell that well, Jeff.

What it is is that outsourcing to Krome Studios is CHEAP. It doesn't cost LucasArts much to outsource to them and even if the game sells like crap they'll still get some return since it's a game with the big and popular "Star Wars" name attached.

I am 22, that means this game is going to be doubly awesome :carms:

Boba Rhett 05-10-2009 03:07 PM

Or only half as awesome.

Rogue15 05-10-2009 06:21 PM

i wouldn't pay $60 for it...

CommanderQ 05-10-2009 09:56 PM

I wouldn't pay .60 $ for it at this rate:D

Aash Li 05-10-2009 10:53 PM

It does look like Lego Star Wars... just without the legos.

Rogue15 05-10-2009 11:18 PM

after watching the trailer, it doesn't seem like a bad game. I wouldn't pay more than $40 for it though, but that's my opinion on almost any game. :)

Aash Li 05-10-2009 11:45 PM

It may be fun, but I agree was well that another game based on Clone Wars is just going to get old.

So girls don't like ice cream cones? :eyeraise:

Strange... :p

Clone Wars to Star wars is Like Doomsday to Superman TBH, It has destroyed SW imo. even swtor has blatantly adopted a "Lets make it as kid/casual fan friendly, Clone warsesque and recognizable, to make more money and get more subs" Attitude.

I mean Star Wars has never been the deepest grittiest Films made, but Clone Wars is a massive fall from the groundbreaking, used future, unlikely hero, story of 77-83. /rant

Ctrl Alt Del 05-11-2009 01:15 PM

I don't mind seeing a Clone Wars product here and there, but when EVERYTHING they do is closely related to it, something is wrong.

cire992 05-11-2009 01:54 PM

^ Agreed. There's some interesting stuff in the prequel canon (creepy cartoon graphics and the wii not being among them), but it's a fraction of the total star wars universe. What we're seeing from LA is the same as if they released the entire original trilogy and only made comics/merchandise/games/books etc based on one of the movies.

I mean seriously, has anyone seen Luke? Luke? Luke? Where are you LUKE? What ever happened to Luke? He was a cool cat.

Yea Luke was a neat dude, swung a laser sword around, had daddy issues, but still didn't afraid of anything.

Boba Rhett 05-11-2009 02:22 PM

Who's Luke?

Ctrl Alt Del 05-11-2009 02:55 PM

I want a Han game. It'd be called The Sarcasm Unleashed.

I'll buy it. This time they will only get me for 3 copies instead of 4 like TFU. I’m official out of the demographic that plays the junk they are producing. Unfortunately my cousins are still in that demographic, so I’m still supporting this inferior junk. :(

Miltiades 05-11-2009 03:25 PM

I think I know now how the Episode IV-VI generation felt when Episode I was released...

Ah yes, one quote can sum that up:

"YIPPEEE!!" - Darth Vader, Episode I
