Default Re: Official Star Wars Republic Commando thread

Been playing the game for a few hours. Very fun, the gameplay is quite interesting despite the largely repeatative nature of it. Graphics are very nice, it has some of the best faked shadows I've ever seen (definatly a large step above Half-life 2's shadowing system). Music is very good as well, I was surprised that it wasn't all just recycled Star Wars music that we've been hearing for the last 20 years, and the best part is that the music is conveniently stored as OGGs right in the game data directory . So far the main downsides I've found are the somewhat forced strategies, slightly sluggish mouse control, and fairly small environments (strangely the backgrounds themselves sometimes stretch on for a very long ways, but you can only walk in a small area of them). Also loading times are fairly frequent, but since they only last a few seconds that's quite forgivable. Otherwise it's very enjoyable, I hope it's not *too* short though.
