My largest worries concern the gameplay. Having seen some of the in-game videos, it seems to be rather slow, slower and drowsier than that in Jedi Academy. Starkiller seems also to take quite many blaster bolts at him with no effects whatsoever.
There wasn't any background music, either. I really hope that isn't the thing in the actual game.

Moreover, in the first level, the Kashyyyk one, I think LA made quite big a mistake by using semi-clone stormtroopers and TIE fighters instead of Phase II clones and V-wing starfighters. After all, the level should take place only a few years after ROTS, right?

I think it's so the game can have an unknown setting, or perhpas just so less models need to be made.

It looks like this game will finally satisfy me with it's Force powers. As great as any other Star Wars games that I've played have been, I've always been a little bit disappointed with the Force powers.

That was much easier! Wink

Heh, I was going for just getting it for PS2, but why bother? I'll just sell my PS2 and some other things *coughLEGO'scough* and get either a 360 or a Wii.

^Well some people want this game, but don't own a console that will play the game, and are deciding to get an Xbox 360 in order to play it. Mera_Bassil was merely just trying to save them money.^

I agree but a few years? How about a few months? Like in the Rise of the Dark Lord novel, after Darth Vader kills Roan Shryne, he shoud move on and then finds Starkiller. You might ask why these two stories would be linked. Well I just don't like the idea of Dath Vader and the Empire invading Kashyyyk so many times just to kill Jedi that's all. Also 501st Clone Troopers with Blue markings should be present instead of the semi-clone stormtroopers.

Oh, I see. But if you're gonna get a console just to play TFU, why not make it a Wii? It's still the cheapest, by far.

Although the Nintendo Wii has motion control, do not forget that the Xbox 360 and PS3 may be recieving DLC.

Also the new look for Xbox 360's interface is pimping:

It's on the PSN whatever the weather. Very Happy

Here's my thoughts, as posted on BH:

Just finished playing through the demo (a 1.4gb download!). In a word: epic. The gameplay is stunning, and you can pretty much chuck anything at anything else and watch the fireworks. For example, two TIE Fighters were closing in on me so I picked up a crate, flung it into the air and took out one. The ensuing explosion took out the other. A third came at me, so I bent a piece of steel structure outwards, and it flew into it.

The demo itself put you on an Imperial Star Destroyer that is under attack by General Rahm Kota, a Jedi. After a brief opening cut-scene which is nothing we haven't seen in trailers (apart from when Vader gives you the mission), we are shown the Rogue Shadow landing in the hangar of said ISD. Then you move through the ISD, taking out Kota's men and Stormtroopers alike. The demo ends when you destroy an AT-ST by slicing it in half. Down the middle.

Sadly, we never get to meet Kota, but that can be forgiven when the gameplay is so frakkin' awesome. It all just feels so right; the lightsaber fighting, the force powers. The controls are slightly fiddly at first, but you get the hang of them quickly. Oh, and the graphics and sound are brilliant as usual. Also, we are shown a new trailer at the end of the demo.

Demo score: 10/10

I saw a video, it looks SO epic. Also brushed up on some of the new Wii footage, and the graphics are solid, not to mention all the physics seem to be intact Cool . I can't to throw TIE FIghters at other TIE Fighters now! But of course, Wii owners are apparently deemed not good enough for a demo. How swell.

But the PS2 and Wii versions are scaled down! You need it in full 1080i HD with 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound not 480i tops with normal quality sound.

So it is. Took them long enough to get it up there. If they say it's available on the 21st, I should be logging on at 12:01am local time and getting it! Very Happy

Now I just need to get through another hour of work, and another hour to download it. Sad

*joins Master Fetty, General Veers and mandalorian_marshall in the no PSP club*


But that's all right, because I have a Gamecube, two PS2's, and I hardly ever feel the need for a portable console. I'm not much into video games right now. This looks okay, but I probably won't get it

But seriously, would you rather spend $170 for a console (actual price of the PSP 2000) plus $40 (actual price for the Force Unleashed for PSP) for a total of $210, or get the Death Star II, the UCS Star Destroyer, or loads of smaller sets.

Finished it an hour ago, liked it, but I thought it was nothing special.

My view:

Graphics: Best Graphics of any Star Wars game to date by far. They have many little things like slicing a droid in half, when you walk into a hanging pipe it sway, having your lightsaber make marks on the walls, and stuff like that. I think they could have added more though to be honest.

Gameplay: Good. Felt like Jedi Academy, played like Jedi Academy, but no custimization like Jedi Academy except the force powers (Which is a nice touch but nothing new.) The Force powers are the best thing in this game (obviously), which is the three force groups: Grip/Throw, Lightning, and Lightsaber assisted force moves. Push is by far the strongest move that he has, which kind of makes this game very easy in my opinion. To complete the game you just need to Push-Move-Slice. When they are pushed they take their time getting up. Also (I believe someone mentioned this here) he takes searing bolts to his chest like a bugbite. He blocks maybe 50 percent of the shots though.
Another think I experienced was horrible...Attacking directions? I was slicing my way through some guys and when I attacked the last one left, Starkiller over here has to jump off the side of the catwalk to attack him. Needless to say I die and I was like "What the crap was that." The environments were very flat in my oppinion. Not flat in texture, flat in the other sense of the word. Of course it was the death star, but there was no ramps, no crates to use to get back up into another catwalk, nothing.

Of course this was the demo...

I really enjoyed the demo, however I was disappointed at how short it was. I can't wait for the game to come out.

I am not gonna lie; I loved ruining a Stormtroopers day by throwing TIE Fighters at him.

If the demo is this good, I can not wait till the game comes out in a few weeks. After the disappointing (but still sorta fun) Episode 3 game, I need a good SW game.
