Republique Episode 5: Terminus

Overview -

'Terminus' is the fifth and final episode of 'République', originally a mobile title that was funded nearly four years ago on Kickstarter. Episodes have been doled out slowly over the course of the last two years for this remastered PC version, with the last being 'God’s Acre'.

Video Review


'Terminus' is a smooth, pretty experience. Motion capture and facial animations are of a high quality as usual, but only Hope gets close enough to the camera to ever really experience it. The claustrophobic hallways of Metamorphosis return to serve as most of the setting, with some recycled maps, but the end of the episode finally provides a bit of the surface.

Audio Review


The voice recordings, acting, and creepy music remain excellent. David Hayter gives a great performance as Zager, and brings some life into what otherwise may have been a somewhat one-dimensional character.

Final Thoughts

The high expectations that I developed after playing through the first three episodes of 'République' have been diminished by 'Terminus'. This is not the denouement I had expected, in terms of gameplay or story. Even so, I think the series as a whole is worth playing. The player just needs to keep in mind that, not unlike many great film series or TV shows, the best entries are in the beginning.
