    Thanks Exar, where did you get that info from?

    I would like to quote it but want more then just "Some guy said." Like a Lucasarts website.

    Is it true there are only THREE locations for this video game I have been waiting for since the first announcements? If so, will they charge me full price for a copy?

    Four actually, and they're broken into sublevels.

    There's Geonosis, Droid Control ship, Ghost Ship, and Kashyyk.

    Most of it comes from the start of RC. At the start of the game, you're an embryo in one of those pods you see in AOTC. A Kaminoan begins to tell you what you are. She introudces you to your squad, indicates how you've trained in rarer equipment for different purposes, and basically tells you that you're a Commando, not a normal soldier.

    There's also an interview with Temuera Morrison - he's the guy who played Jango and provides the voice for 38 (your character in the game). He gives further insight into your character.

    I reckon you should play the game - it's a corker ;)

    Yes, but the Droid Control Ship is part of Geonosis, which looks like the only Wars-true location in the game. The ghostship could have been taken from Aliens.

    Yes, the Trandos were completely wrong. They moved like monkeys. The gama had potential, and the handling of it is superb, but the setting was just bad.
    And they really screwed it up with the battledroids... (eyes ?!?!?!?!?! ).

    this game was good, i liked the look and feel of the game, and how it ties loose ends between AOTC, Clone Wars and ROTS. but i have one problem....it was to easy....i finished in 3 days....and i did not play it that much.

    I'm replaying it now, and it's still great. I love it :D

    Thing is, I've already played this once, and I've played through KOTOR a gazillion times.....

    And only 10 minutes ago did I relaise Scorch is voiced by Raphael Sbarge a.k.a Carth Onasi. He's got a distinctive voice, how did the hell did I miss this?

    What's up with the Trandoshans, they look all weird in this game. They look nothing like Bossk or Vossk from KOTOR II.

    I thought that, too. I was like, "Who are these weird looking dudes?" I thought they were some EU thing.

    I'm thinking that they must be juveniles or something. I kept running into these big, imposing dudes with battle armour and chainguns - they looked much more like proper trandoshans....

    I dunno about that. I didn't see any lightsabres, and I'm glad that I didn't. JA showed off just how good lightsabre wielding could get, but I think they would have spoiled RC's special forces-like setting.

    Ah, our first catch of the day. ;)

    RC is a reimagining of the SW universe. If you're looking for consistency, you're playing the wrong game. The enemies are meant to look bigger, badder and meaner than they usually do, which is why the battle droids and Trandos look different. Personally I think the runty ones look funny more than anything, but they still make a nice splash on my helmet so I'm not worried.

    No offense to my console-playing brethern, but an expansion won't happen because they can't do it on the Xbox. Which is a big shame.

    ExarKunundrum , anything special on the PC version of Republic commando?

    I agree that consoles are restrictive in FPS games, and would like to get the PC version.On the other hand Ive already played the game through on Xbox and don't know if I should get it now.

    Halo being one exeption to what I have just said.....

    But I do NEED to play it through again and imagine Carth inside the katarn armor and not six-two.
    Could you imagine Scorch coming up to 38 and saying "Look its nothing personel, I just don't like you!"

    I only played the Xbox version long enough for me to despise the control system as I do for any other Console FPS, so I'm not sure what the xbox version had. Therefore I can't tell you what the PC version has different :)

    Though I will say that this game *felt* like a PC game - it's no port, that's for sure....

    The game was good, and boy let me tell you. I hate those super battle droids. If they overwhelm you your through. Like the music, very Duel of the Fates like. Nice little game. I heard that they are doing RC: Order 66 for the mobile cell phone. That kinda sucks, becuase I don't have a mobile. I use nextel.

    You really have to use those gernade launchers on the SBD's and then use the detonator to destroy that droid replicator.

    It did seem a little too short but it seems like more and more games going that route... but with everything that was packed into the game i wasn't disappointed. Just means a whole line of sequals, I hope!
