Review Ah, Star Wars. It seems that once the new trilogy sprang to life that the flood gates were burst wide open and the amount of new, official stuff coming from the franchise is growing by leaps and bounds yearly. The 3D animated Clone Wars series is the latest thing to hit, and with it have come a handful of titles based on its look, feel and storytelling slant. The latest is Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes, a title that is clearly aimed at the younger audience out there. Now just because the target audience is younger doesn't mean that the game should get any less polish or have lower production values than stuff catered towards the hardcore crowd, but unfortunately that's the case here...The first thing you'll notice is that pretty much regardless of which system you play it on, it looks rather terrible. Most everything looks a generation behind what it should be. That is, the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC SKUs look like a PlayStation 2 game, while the PS2 version looks like a PS1 game. The PSP version looks OK for what it is, but it doesn't run well enough given the graphics at hand. Perhaps the only game that looks like it belongs on the system you bought it for is the Wii version, though even in that case it's only passable...After a while, you'll find that all of this boredom and frustration just goes on and on. I have no idea what the point of the story was or what the end goal was going to be for a long, long time, so that wasn't drawing me through the adventure. Aside from having to play it simply to write this review, I had no interest in playing the game, and I think that says enough...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.
