Republique is filled with interesting ideas about the very real fear of modern-day fascism and the omnipresence of privacy-killing technology, concepts that are more often found in literature than video games, and the way it approaches its themes through the security cameras of a dystopian nightmare is admirable. But all the interesting ideas in the world are moot if the game can't make a satisfying experience out of them, and sadly, Republique fails to stick the landing.
Republique continues to impress with its willingness to grow from episode to episode
Republique comes to PS4 as a complete package, and the game is all the better for it.
République is a competent stealth game that leaves plenty of room for improvement. While it weaves a number of intriguing plot threads into an interesting story full of socio-political motifs, it's ultimately an uneven ride that could have done a better job conveying its ideas.
All through my time with République I felt it would make an excellent book, thriller movie, or even a TV show. It makes a good mobile game but not a great console game, where it's let down by the poor opposition AI, and it's a shame that the actual gameplay drags it down so much. Fans of dystopian fiction, or good stories in general, would absolutely adore Hope's journey. The execution leaves a lot to be desired.
You won't play anything quite like Republique anytime soon, and its deep storyline is worth taking the time to dig into.
Camouflaj's stealth game – both innovative and reverential – has arrived as a complete five-episode package on PlayStation 4
With Episode 4 being the pinnacle, Republique is full of great story, fun characters, and a few twists and turns along the way. It's an engaging episodic adventure that suffers from mediocre gameplay mechanics and a camera system that is unique, but at times feels finicky and unpolished.
iOS Kickstarter hit Republique comes to PC and Mac, delivering a terrific graphical upgrade alongside an enthralling plot and claustrophobic stealth gameplay.
There is a true sense the developers have put a lot of thought into the story, creating a compelling environment that draws the player to get every scrap of information they can.
