I had only played the demo as a kid and I played the full game like last month or so.
It's very basic mechanic wise, clunky, and super short and boring. The squad leader idea is pretty cool and your mates are great but overall the game is just not that good. Plus it ends so fucking abruptly.
The red dude was literally the only cool thing about the whole game desu.
Yeah, if George didn't demand they all have different colored armor so he could make four times as many toys we'd have to get by with their personality and voices to tell them apart.
For its time it was a reasonably good entry, most of the praise it receives comes from its own sort of cult following. The clunkiness probably comes mostly from the fact that it's a console game that didn't have aim assist, plus a few other smaller factors. It had a ton of potential, if we took all the refinements that modern shooters have made and applied them to a new entry while still being able to keep the core aspect intact (command a deadly team of super-soldiers with an emphasis on squad-based tactics) then it could easily be the best shooter we've seen in a long time. The problem is that EA has the license for Star Wars games for something like 10 years now, so we're probably never going to see the Imperial Commando that we want to see.
The squad mechanics, HUD, story, and atmosphere are all great but the shooting could use some serious work. Every gun feels really weak and every enemy feels like a massive bullet sponge making some levels just a total slog to get through
Its short and the ending sucks but still a cool game.
That part where you have to defend the ship hangar and then the bridge from a CIS attack is great.
Loved this game when it came out and have played it quite a few times since then, still holds up decently. Only major annoyance to me are the geonosians.
The multi was fun too.
Elite geonosians and super battle droid spam got annoying really quick. Ammo distribution didn't seem to be balanced well with those spammy encounters. Ending was total blue balls.
Had fun though; No sequel is total bullshit.
I really like it for the most part, but I'd agree with everyone saying the guns all feel weak and shitty. When your entire game is moving from combat arena to combat arena your shooting has to feel good.
Also I would say that most of the levels are too linear for you to really make use of advanced squad maneuvers. And even then if I set up one guy at a sniping position and the other two to defend him while I move ahead on my own, more often than not I'd be fine while all 3 of them would be dead.
It's a meme game. The only thing you ever hear about it is how you "couldn't save Sev ;_;"
There's literally nothing else worth talking about with it. It's a generic military shooter with a Star Wars skin.
we need more emotionally intense games from a trooper standpoint

They should have given it a chibi artsyle. Because it was a spin-off and that's acceptable!
>there was going to be an Imperial Commando game
>it was cancelled
I remember I was being so hyped for it
>tfw The Clone Wars saved Delta Squad from Disney's purge
Pretty good game, one of the best star wars games
>tfw sev is forever gone
It was pretty mediocre to be honest. It had some nice ideas (like the screen wiper effect) and some atmospheric levels (that abandoned ship with the trandoshans and the hidden lightsaber), but it was also pretty short and linear, and the squad mechanics felt pretty gimmicky at times.
But it's one of these games, like SWBF2, that people have a ridiculous amount of nostalgia for for some reason.
I wish the squad applied bacta themselves when a skirmish was over. Do I really need to tell you to heal?
>Gee, boss, thanks for letting me apply first aid to my myriad blaster wounds.
>>tfw The Clone Wars saved Delta Squad from Disney's purge
tfw Star Wars Rebels totally killed Kyle Katarn and Jan Orss
