Feature: The worthiest reticules of all time

The 50 best FPS on PC

The best shooters endure. While the state of the art moves on in other genres and leaves old designs in the dust, it's as fun to fire a well-made shotgun from an early 90s FPS as from one released today. For that reason, this list runs the gamut from genre classics to those released in the last year. There's bound to be something for you…

Republic Commando is on sale and better than you remember

I'm not sure how rare this experience is, but I played A LOT of Star Wars games as a kid without having seen the Star Wars movies. They not only laid the groundwork of my later-fandom, but they also told these side stories that were (occasionally) so well done that I wound up underwhelmed by the films themselves. You know what? Typing all that out,…

The 10 Best Star Wars PC Games

There's no shortage of 'best Star Wars games' features across this nerdly old internet of ours, but the majority focus on console games which don't often stray from the action/shooting category. On PC, we've had so much more variety over the years: sometimes for better, sometimes for very much worse. With the warm reception to the The Force Awakens meaning we no longer need to…

Star Wars: Restitution Commando

My 17,000 word feature on the 50 best PC first-person-shooters is 100% objectively correct, with once exception - due to a multiversal non-causal timeslip event, the existence of Star Wars: Republic Commando was removed from all reality for just a moment. Unfortunately, that moment just happened to be the moment that I otherwise would have noted it down for inclusion in the list. Imagine my…

Have You Played… Star Wars: Republic Commando?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. As we enter a phase of Star Wars in which everyone involved tries really hard to pretend those leaden prequel movies never happened, it's worth remembering that not everything from that ponderous timeline was a disaster. Squad-based shooter Republic Commando plucked something with…

Re-Retro: Republic Commando

Combing my hard drive for dusty manuscripts to rehome on RPS, I stumbled happily across this revisit to Star Wars: Republic Commando, originally written for PC Gamer. Admittedly I've already given RepCom a little retro cuddle on RPS, but as Lucasart's Star Wars shooter is now available on Steam it's well worth restating its surprising marvellousness... I'm still waiting for Imperial Commando. It was never…

Retrospective: Republic Commando

Knights of the Old Republic tends to be the only recent Star Wars game that anyone mentions with affection (yeah, I’m aware of a certain fanbase for Battlefront, but that doesn’t stop it from being absolute garbage). This is a shame. I give you Republic Commando, the lost Star Wars game. Being bound in as it is with the boo-yucky prequel movies, RepCom is easily…
