Out of the E3 2010 press event comes the first gameplay footage for LucasArts upcoming title, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.
I wonder if its leading on ps3 like the first one, engine looks refined. @SOAD The 360 version had massive slow down i remember it very well.
The first led on the PS3? It looked worse on PS3, I remember.
The PS3 verison looked slightly worse lacking relfections etc. Cant comment on the slow downs because I never playe dthem side by side, but the 360 verison played fine for me.
http://www.gametrailers.com... lol watch the end of the comparison slow motion. But you are right its only the development of the 2nd game that is leading on ps3 good news though.
I'm glad i'm getting the best looking version (: Or to be more precise the PC version.
I love Star Wars meets God of War Star Gods of War
That looks great. I am so glad they are putting more effort into the visuals, but I hope they put as much effort into the level design and story this time around. Also, I would like the campaign to be longer and have more replay value.
No more terrible backtracking to progress the story.
yeah games like these are fantastic but their major fault is the length and ease of which you can get through the single player campaign. If they work on the campaign and bring out more DLC than the original (which im sure they will seeing as DLC is getting more and more popular) it should be a very good game.
Though the action wasn't shown to full potential, I just couldn't take my eyes of the environment. It looked so pretty and full of life. I think this game will end up a winner barring they fix the little things that hindered the original.
Gameplay looks like it's taking a lot more advantage of the force abilities in the manner that you can combine them for various effects. Saw pulling opponents close for hitting, pushing with different purposes, and some nice force melee combos. I also noticed a lot more environment detail and set-ups for using your abilities.
You know I beat FU a long time ago, but from my field of vision it looks like the animations aren't as choppy. I hope LucasArts has a better handle on the Euphoria Engine, cause those two previous CG trailers are amazing. GPFTW
DMM technology too
I'm skeptical, simply because though it may look better and animate smoother, the gameplay appears to exactly as the same as the first game, which was repetitive and uninspired. Doesn't seem like having two lightsabers makes a big difference either (oh look, he throws two instead of one), but I'll still wait to see what set-pieces they've got in mind. Hopefully nothing as nightmarish as the mission to pull down the Star Destroyer from the first game.
I agree with you here. I liked the Star Destroyer mission but it was overly complicated.
you know, I juts played that mission with the star destroyer. It was tough, but once you know how to do it, then it becomes quite straight forward. I just used lightning on the tie fighters as they peeled off to the left. Rinse and repeat. I do hope they fix the camera in the second one. I had massive problems targeting for force powers, generally.
I'm hoping they can push the Euphoria and DMM technology a bit more. When the first Force Unleashed was revealed, the Tech demos seemed to promise more than what the game ended up with.
I still hate the lightsaber combat from the first, I was hoping it would be like Jedi Knights. This gameplay, unfortunately, only shows force powers and saber throwing.
Yeah, there's just something about the lightsaber combat in this game (the first one) that I just didn't like at all.
probably cause the lightsaber feels more like a glowing bat
Wanted the first one but pasted it up... I will most likely get this one... Just wished he did not hold the light sabers like that... it does not look kool...
Tell LucasArts that. "Okay guys. We got this dude who pulls down TIE fighters and Star Destroyers, kicks all the main canon characters' asses, holds his lightsaber backwards and is just all kinds of awesome. How do we make him cooler?!" "Oh! Oh! Give him TWO lightsabers to hold backwards!" "BRILLIANT!" -___-
I know, he holds them like a douchebag nerd who thinks he is a ninja. Oh and I didn't know Doomsday was in this game.
I think they do it to show his acrobatics/agility like a shinobi, and the stance makes him look less agressive to the enemy when he really is.
i like the way he holds the lightsabers different from how everyone else holds thier lightsabers
LOOKS much better then the original one.
It was in development before the PS3 even released. This one is the same. Same engine, same Dev kit (360). They cant up and change and remake all that code that fast for a sequel. They refine it a bit and add to it, but it would take 3, 4 years to do it all from scratch or switch dev kits. It looks good though. *Edit* I never said it was better on the 360, just said it was the lead console, though I heard it had control issues on the PS3 version and some framrate issues. I only played the demo on PS3 and bought it on 360 though and had no issues there.
So what you're implying is that the 360 version of FU2 will be better than the PS3 version? Do you have nothing better to do than troll around?
I just need them to nail the light saber combat i swear if i have to hit a storm trooper 10+ time with a light saber again ill be irate !
everytime i went to hit a stormtrooper in TFU this line went through my head "batter up!"
Still has old gen liner gameplay and lightsabers tha club, rather than cut... rubbish!
So...30sec clip and you can tell that it's linear? You can also tell how the lightsaber works even though he didn't use it in this clip? Dismemberment has been confirmed. IGN said they saw limbs flying and they confirmed dismemberment.
Starkiller looks identical to the guy that played doomsday in smallville lol
Um that is the same guy lol i was confused when i first seen him on there as well
and the guy didn't even use the lightsabers in the clip. Come on. Either way, it looks good. It's still early footage though. Look at when he lifts the stormtrooper and charges him with lightning. His hand didn't move when he used lightning there, even though it did in the first one. Obviously stuff like that will get fixed until it's release. Reading the early previews, it's nice to see that LucasArts listened. They said they took player and critic feedback and started fixing everything. The targeting system, faster menus, new Force powers (Mind Trick), the lightsaber combat, dismemberment, more variety, more interactive environment, etc... of course we really can't see all that in this 30 sec clip :P. They have confirmed a demo though. They'll be releasing the demo a month before they full game. So, around the end of Sept, or early Oct.
Hope they don't add the predetermined destruction into the game again. I hated cutting up a droid and every time I did it would slice in half in the same fashion. The guy playing the demo made it seem very boring.
right? They bigged the first game up for drm and blah blah and than you get the game and everything was scripted practically. Oh sure smash out windows and things, coooollll same thing happened every time.
Looks to handle as bad as the last.
I got both endings and neither one seems to line up with what I'm seeing here... Did they just throw them out?
just wait for more info i felt the same wa at first but thier is a rumor going around that this is a clone of starkiller
No HUD, and something seems off in the gameplay. Where is the aiming reticle? If anything this is being shown on a PC.
Good call. It would explain the improved visuals.
Graphics look better. Lightsabers, oh geez why is he holding them backwards? That makes no sense to me...and ok so you have this badass jedi and they are shooting at him why isn't he using his lightsabers to block the shots? I don't get that...that would be cool!
is he using electricity under the rain?
look like i can play this with my feet. why they just dont make a new jedi knights
Wow... It looks very good. They improved visuals nicely... Despite which is the lead system, I just hope it looks this good on the PS3. The first was somewhat fun, but the visual were a bit underwhelming IMO. This looks pretty good so I will keep my eye on it.
graphics looks great, nice new powers too, but the ai looks bad, they barely hit him, and the only one close to him missed the hit, not sure what difficulty its being played on, but i hope its still in development stage so that they can fix the ai a bit more, but looks like a good game. i remember having a star wars game on ps2 me and my bud used to play co-op and that was fun still, can't remeber the title though
the first one played better on the PS3 than the 360. i have both consoles btw.
meh. i preferred the wii&ps2 versions of the first game much more than the ps360 one (they were different games) . this looks just as bland as the original (so far).
Wow, I wasn't expecting THAT! It looks much more better than the first one, and TFU was already good!
Gameplay looks exactly the same though.
That was dumb...he didn't slice anyone with the lightsaber even one time.
I just hope they don't make it as stiff as the first game. The animations were horrible.
the way he carries his lightsabers looks awkward. It works with 1 but not with 2. Hopefully this game get WM+ or Move support
