Gameplay in Star Wars the Clone Wars: Republic Heroes is mission-based. Players
can choose to approach the action as either a Jedi or a clone class character.
Playing as a Jedi you have access to eight playable characters, and as a clone
you play as one of a group of clones. The game was developed with co-op play in
mind, which means players can more or less count on never fighting alone, which
is a good thing considering the hordes of battle droids and other enemies you
will face. The game also features a puzzle-solving gameplay component, as well
as an upgrade system based on the collection of "Force Orbs" scattered
throughout the game environment.
Weapons and Combat
Keeping with the games' user friendly approach, the control scheme has been
designed with Jedi character's lightsaber and force powers, as well as clone
characters firing trigger accessible from a single input source. Because of the
difference in the character classes weapons, combat differs depending on the
class chosen. Due to their reliance on the their lightsabers, Jedi will mostly
engage enemies at close range, although force power attacks can allow for more
distance from targets. In addition, utilizing Jedi powers at point blank range
players are able to engage in "droidjacking," which allows a Jedi to take
control of a droid's weapons system and other abilities. On the other hand,
clone character combat relies more on firepower, utilizing a variety of blaster
type weapons and thermal grenades, although clones are able to acquire heavier
weapons, such as miniguns and rocket launchers as the game progresses. Because
of the projectile nature of these weapons clone character combat can be fought
as a variety of distances.
