Who wants a sequel?

#1 Posted by drewm135 (216 posts) -

I among many others loved this game. The only thing not so great with this game was the fact that it was so short. Other than that, it had great graphics, AI, squad commands, etc. So who thinks there should've been a sequel to this game?

#2 Posted by igpx407 (75 posts) -

I do. At least there is an excellent book series based off this game. They're one of my favorite Star Wars series.

I would love one.

That game was awesome.

I really want one, hopefully it comes soon

#5 Posted by ZimpanX (420 posts) -

I sooo want one, gimme more Sev!

A sequel to this game would be awesome, but sadly I don't think it sold enough copies for Lucas Arts to feel compelled to make another. With the recent layoffs there, and with several other, more high-profile, Star Wars games currently in development, I doubt any executive at Lucas Arts would find it appropriate to pull people away from other projects to work on a game that (let's be fair) will probably not sell well.

It's a shame that the first game didn't garner more public attention, because it really was a well-designed and fun experience that is worthy of a sequel, but I just don't think it's in the cards.

i think  id be an amazing game

I do, the first was excellent.

#9 Posted by Zalzargahoughanstine (56 posts) -

I'm not holding my breath, but I still really would like to see a sequel.

In a world where FPS's are dominant, hell, why not?

#11 Posted by solidphoenix (286 posts) -

Sure! Why not?
Just make it longer, and make sure that the gameplay mechanics have been updated because Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare raised the bar, and a sequel would have to uphold those expectations that we now have for First-person shooters.

This game deserves a sequel with the new clone wars movie coming out it brings an oppertunity to bring out new games associated to the clone wars. It is a great game and there needs to be a sequel.

#13 Posted by DarCowAlways (27 posts) -

This is one of my favorite games of all time-- I really want to see a sequel!

#14 Posted by Hamz (6846 posts) -

I enjoyed the first game but i wouldn't really want a sequel. The Clone War era in Star Wars is fun but we've seen it covered so many times now i really am fed up with seeing or hearing more about it.

They would be silly not too,
what with next-gen star wars technology and the fact that there was a massive cliffhanger at the end
long live sev!

I missed this game when it first came out, is it backwards compatible?

#17 Posted by atejas (3057 posts) -

This game was the second good thing to come out in terms of star wars games.

Really because I checked some lists but I can't find it. But then again all the lists are missing games that the others have.

i want BATTLEFRONT :D

Guess what I learned on GiantBomb today? In the Force Unleashed demo, there is apparently an easter egg of Boss's helmet from Republic Commando. There's a picture on the force Unleashed page as well as a description of how to get to it. Gtta love Giantbomb; I never would have known that otherwise.

Anyways, I would love a sequel to Republic Commando, but it probably won't happen. They've got those novels that deal with the squad after the first game right? One of them is called Order 66, so presumably the squad goes on without Sev :( And I don't imagine they would do a prequel.

Star Wars: Republic Commando is one of the most over looked made FPS made and one of the best.

#24 Posted by NAKent (91 posts) -

Damn I need this game, maybe they could use the euphoria engine in it. But the first one was made with unreal so maybe not. This would be a great starter for their Outsource plan.
I'm thinking maybe Pandemic or Gearbox. Hopefully the team that did the first one is still around.

this was a game that i can play over and over, memorizing everything, so i would love to see a sequal and save sev (whether he's dead or getting raped by droids) lol

#26 Posted by Zereta (1368 posts) -

I'm actually, as a matter of fact, on my first playthrough of this. Pretty early on, in the Core ship that's about to blow and this game, even now, is pretty damn amazing. Like, I expected myself, not having any history with this game to go in and be like "Fuck this. Its shit" 
 
Oh hell no! Its amazing. 
 
I've read all the books in the series and having played a bit of this game, I really want this to get a sequel. 
 
Starting along Order 66 to either working for the Empire or going Renegade.\ 
 
Oh and if anyone's interested: Rebel FM did a 3 Episode Game Club series for Republic Commando, with each one covering one campaign and the last one with one of the Devs. Really interesting.

Isn't Sev in like all the books past "Hard Contact"? Not sure how the books are paced in relation to the game but Sev is with Delta everytime Delta is mentioned in the books.

This game did catch my eye when it came out, but I didn't have an XBOX at the time. How good was this game?

#29 Posted by Seedofpower (3930 posts) -

I could live with out one,  but if they made another I'll probably rent it like last one. Just to see what happened to his squad.

#30 Posted by ImperiousRix (2963 posts) -

I'd love to see a next gen version of this, simply because I'm a huge Star Wars fan who didn't own an Xbox at the time it came out and never played it.

It looked pretty damn good, too.

Im a star wars fan and i thought it was great, i enjoyed the storyline and combat from a more serious point of view
if your not a star wars fan, you probably would have thought of it as a worthy rental because there are some things that always bothered, but also some that are great ( ex: stabbing  an alien or droid and having the blood or battery acid splatter on your visor)
 
i thought it was a solid game, probably average to most people though

Stuff splatters on the visor? So it's like Metroid Prime, but an FPS
#33 Posted by Bubahula (2197 posts) -

i definitely would. i liked having that different star wars viewpoint.

yea sort of with a star wars perspective
#35 Posted by Shirogane (3574 posts) -

Huh, i'm quite sure it's on pc as well, if you don't have an xbox. 
 
A sequel for this would be pure awesomeness. I'd settle for a spiritual sequel though, doesn't even need to be set in the star wars universe, more awesome if it was a direct one though.
#36 Posted by NTM (7383 posts) -

Yes, I would love a sequel to this game. I know the Star Wars: Imperial Commando, which was supposed to be the sequel was cancelled in 2004, but I'd still love one to be brought up again. I remember when this game came out, this was one of my favorite games, so much so that I even made it the center of one of my high school projects to present. I know, weird. Now? I'm not a huge Star Wars fan. I think there's stuff here and there that I still like in Star Wars, but my interests have mainly moved on, but this is something I could still get behind. Also, I'm bringing up an old topic, so sorry.

#37 Posted by huntad (1940 posts) -

I'd only like one if it was in the 'gritty' Star Wars style that the new game is supposedly set in. I really enjoyed the first one, but a sequel would probably have to do more nowadays.

REPUBLIC COMMANDO SHALL NOT BE FORGOTTEN.

I think I have a pretty good idea. Make a game about Rebel commandos. Make them similar to Green Berets in which they have to infiltrate a planet, recruit indigenous beings, and carry out a Guerilla war against the Empire.
