"You won't have to take on the droid legions by yourself, though. Republic Heroes is built around cooperative play and there are two characters on screen at almost all times, which means a second player can jump in and out at his or her leisure. Learning this, I immediately thought of another big name in the LucasArts world: LEGO Star Wars. Republic Heroes seems to share that same multiplayer mentality, though obviously no LEGO pieces are involved this time around.
The Jedi mission I played took place on the planet Ryloth -- a prominent desert world in the Clone Wars TV series. Heroes Anakin and Ahsoka charge across perilous cliffs, dispatching droid troops along the way. Fighting as a Jedi is very simple in Clone Wars, as most attacks can just be executed with one button, though players can also take advantage of powers like the Force Push to cast droids aside. But the most interesting aspect of combat in Republic Heroes is the Jedi's ability to jack droids. By leaping atop any droid, players can plunge their lightsaber into the soldier and temporarily assume control of it. This means taking advantage of its weapon systems, which are often used for puzzle solving."
Again, Republic Heroes is coming to the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 2, Playstation Portable (PSP), Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, and PC on September 15th.
