The story was laid out into episodes, with some sort of development or twist at the end to launch into the next. It is different with the style of the visuals and far less amount of decisions that would impact the story. The environments for the game flowed very well. Any time I entered an area, I felt I was able to get through it. Nothing felt so impossible that it could not be done. The keys to this game involved patience and being aware of Hope's placement in respect to the guards. How the game integrates the player into becoming a part of the story was different and interesting; rather than just having the players play as Hope, you are helping her and trying to protect her.
Republique is a passionately delivered title, albeit with some annoyances, but has a great story to back it up and some serviceable stealth gameplay.
République is an experience like no other, one that I struggle to retrospectively place on a mobile device because of its excellence in design and story it tells - its just that good. Even with a lot of frequent loading screens the experience is still more than worth the price of entry.
République is worth spending time with. It’s a well-made game that isn’t perfect, but has enough attentional content that makes it more than your bog-standard escape from one room to the next stealth experience. If you have some free time, help Hope escape from a life she wants to forget. If you do, Cooper will personally thank you from the bottom of his heart, and deliver a performance you will want to tell everybody about.
Republique tells a pretty good story, has good character performances, and looks nice while playing it. While the game has it's faults I enjoyed it a lot and found it to be a pretty good stealth game. The game is only $25 and has some nice hidden secrets as well. If you don't like slower paced games or games that don't feature much combat you may not enjoy it and it does have some technical issues. Regardless the story it sets out to tell is worth experiencing and if you passed on it before due to not being able to control Hope you'll want to play the PS4 version. There aren't very many stealth games on the market right now but developer Camouflaj has crafted one that is very much worth playing.
An intriguing tale, coupled with lenient stealth gameplay that will exclude no-one.
Republique Remastered cannot simply be summed up by saying that this is how a PC port of a mobile game should be done, because the original material itself transcends the usual limits of tablet games, merely content to offer an experience that's similar but of a lesser quality when compared to console games.
Of course Republique serves to act as an Orwellian-style warning against totalitarian and far-right regimes. The overwhelming bulk of the game is geared towards developing that theme, and its narrow focus does come at the expense of characters that I would have liked to see developed to far greater depth. But it's also a superb pure stealth game, and it's always nice to see these kinds of games done without a reliance on violence.
I am generally not a fan of mobile games as they currently exist, fraught as they are with paywalls and repetitive gameplay. 'République' has established itself as not just an exception to that trend but a very strong and thought-provoking game in its own right, and is even better now on the PC with its facelift. It is bookish but not boring, influenced but not derivative. If you like games that make you think, not just with their puzzles but with their script, you probably won't regret 'République.'
Republique is an engaging experience all around, providing intelligent and thoughtful storytelling, despite the occasional cliché here and there. For those who have enjoyed the journey so far (regardless of the ending), it's a solid recommendation to dive into right now. For those that like their tales wrapped up neatly, however, it might be best to wait a bit till the complete experience is out on 22nd March.
République doesn't do itself any favours through its control system. It's definitely not the pinnacle of stealth gameplay but, luckily, it doesn't have to be. The characters and story are all interesting enough to grab attention through all five episodes, and each has its own unique elements of suspense and intrigue. It might be sometimes frustrating to play, but there's something utterly compelling that it's hard to want to put it down.
Republique tries to do something different… it's got a few hooks to keep you playing; eager to find out more about Hope and her strange surroundings
Republique is a unique mobile experience that feels a bit antiquated on PS4, including a less satisfying control scheme and an unimpressive visual aesthetic.
République is not only proof that mobile games can be vast, unique, and fun; but that they can often make the transition to computers and consoles seamlessly. The game is immersive, the plot is developed from our own curiosity and desire to help Hope, and it strives to make you feel like an actual character in this strange dystopian world.
If you're looking for a more straightforward stealth experience set in a Bioshock-like world you should definitely consider Republique. Better late than never, I suppose.
République Remastered's combination of storytelling and visuals do not outweigh its faults.
Republique still remains as one of the more challenging and fun stealth games to release in a long while.
It's likely that we will remember République for being the game with the some of the coolest collectible items in video game history rather than being an awesome experience.
I want to finish the story, but not play the game to do it.
A hidden treasure
