ActionTrip Previews Rebublic: The Revolution
11:19 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

ActionTrip has posted a hands-on preview of the just-gone-gold game, Republic: The Revolution. The preview features 27 screenshots and 3 exclusive in game movies.

Here's a clip from the preview:

From a visual standpoint, Republic is quite unique. The engine offers some incredibly detailed looking architecture for a management game. You can zoom in extremely close (ground view) and see the extremely detailed characters which have a very high polygonal count and cast some very complex shadows. The same can be said about the buildings. The fictional Russian republic of Novistrana looks incredibly picturesque and alive. The architecture is reminiscent of cities like St. Petersburg; parks are littered with green trees with rich bows that sway in the wind. There is a bustling traffic on the streets - quite amazing when you consider just how many objects there are in each scene at any given time. Granted, I wish there were even more people in the streets, but when you consider the complexity of the shadows and the polygonal count, it's amazing that this game runs fairly smoothly at max detail and in 1152x864 on my Barton 2500+/ATI 9700PRO/1Gb RAM rig (minimum system requirements are Pentium III-800, 512MB RAM, 32MB TnL enabled Graphics card).
