That VideoGame Blog outlines why gamers will once again be disappointed by another Star Wars game. This time possibly even more so than ever before.
but im waiting for Star Wars Battlefront 3
Yea it could be a rental. I'm a huge star wars fan but personally wasn't expecting much
If they had made the game more like Outcast or Jedi Academy (better controls, targetting, and more interactive light-saber duels) then this game would have been a hit. As it stands from playing it - it is a fun game. But more of a rental than a buy. (IMO)
I was disappointed with the demo too. I really didn't like the quicktime button sequence for the AT-ST. Maybe I expected too much but when you have a light saber, you should be able to destroy whatever you want with out having to go into the quicktime button response.
This will be a rental for me as well, as much as I like games like this, The force unleashed plays too awkwardly and is a bit too shoddy to enjoy.
The demo was fun but it didn't seem worth the purchase to me. It felt like a upgraded version of Jedi Power Battles.
Its really funny cause I tried the same things he did like trying to get the Stormtroopers to cling on to objects on purpose and wondering if I could cut things in half. I also noticed the thing about the droids always falling apart the same way no matter how you hit them. It was fun, but just a regular single player mode is not enough to get me to shell out 60 bucks, I'll rent it beat it and give it back. Like most people I was hoping for a Jedi Outcast/Academy experience. Man I hope they make a proper sequel to it...
I just want another shadows of the empire or Jedi Knights Outcast to come out. I liked the demo but was hoping the saber fighting would have been much deeper.
I don't get that comment, the saber fighting in force unleashed seems much better than the saber in jedi outcast. There weren't even any combos in jedi outcast, and you can do a lot more with the saber combat wise in force unleashed, and thats just from the demo.
I wasn't comparing it to outcast and what I meant by deeper is really hard to explain. Still the demo was nice and the story seems to be very deep so I will play it 1st before giving my opinion.
Taking down the AT-AT was damn hard, mostly because i would die instantaneously. For some reason, i couldn't move when its laser fire hit me. The lightsaber moves were pretty fun, but limited.
AT-ST* The AT-AT is the hulking 4-legged ones. Personally I liked the demo being the SW whore I am. You're supposed to be able to lvl up your powers and get different saber crystals for upgrading etc. in the full game. My only real complaint is not being able to move while blocking.
thats why Hype is not really good from time to time . Everybody expect the game to be a really good title but when its not we all feel deceived.

Bubbles for you for being an Eyeshield 21 fan. YA-HA!
*sigh* Another expensive game not being bought...you're all not helping your hardcore cause. The less money you spend on hardcore games the more the casual will pick up, and you won't see as much of what you want. So let's just get this and sell it asap. :D
This game suck.
I liked it so much,it's so good,I don't know why some didn't like it the graphics are good and has a star wars feel to them the soundtracks are amazing the control is easy the gameplay is well done,nice combat,a force grip system that never gets old amazing physics I really loved it and gonna buy it DAY 1
agree. exactly what i've had said. bubbles
I thought it was very fun too actually.
Who is trying to bury this game, and why? Can't blame Nintendo, Sony, or MS because it's multiplat. Now I'm sure TFU won't be the best game ever released, but so far the reviewers seem to be saying, "Meh. Fun but not amazing." Yes. Fun. Seems like a lot of current releases take themselves so seriously in trying to shatter the earth that they forget about the importance of fun in the entertainment industry. I'm not counting on this game to change gaming the way X-Wing did all those years ago (yes, I was around for that), but it also doesn't NEED to change gaming. The premise is to "kick butt with the Force," and the demo, at least, delivers. After a summer of heavy, story driven games like MGS4--which I loved--I'm looking forward to a mindless lightsaber-fest. As long as it's fun.
You know what maybe it's getting such low scores because so many people where fired when it was almost done. I know a few and they where not happy and I'm sure these reviewers know a few.
Maybe I didn't have the same amount of hype going in, but the demo was basically what i expected from this game. From what the dev stated all along the game was always going to be a god of war/ninja gaiden type action game with great physics and force powers turned up really high. Thats exactly what the demo was. If fans had unrealistic expectations then thats not the dev's fault. I followed the previews and dev interviews on this game, and the demo lives up to basically everything they said it would be. The article here brings up some decent points like with the blocking and the health from dead troopers, but the rest of his copmlaints are kind of dumb. Like the lightsaber thing, people need to just get over the fact that, you will NEVER, EVER see a star wars game with bloody decapitations and dismemberments with a light saber, its a family franchise and cutting people up with a lightsaber is just not going to happen, so get over it.
If there were gore it wouldn't feel like a genuine Star Wars game.
i personally enjoyed the demo and will be getting this day one but pleeeeeaaaaaaassssseeeeeeee i want KOTOR III !!
I'm waiting for that too. :)
has there been any kind of word on whats going on with the KOTOR franchise besides the MMO thats being worked on?
Games i had on pre order for this month was starwars unleashed and brothers in arms new one. played the unleashed demo wasnt too impressed so took me preorder off. So just looks like the brothers in arms game this month.
I went through the demo 3 times and each time I liked the game that much more. The first time I was a clumsy oaf and didn't feel like I was kicking much butt, but after the 3rd time I was getting into some neat combos, zapping boxes with lighting and throwing little lightning bombs and flinging the saber and whatnot. I may just rent it in the long run, but looking forward to playing it. My biggest concern with this game was they would hone in on the physics/force stuff as their key item and the rest of the game would suffer. I can't say from the demo if that is the case or not. I wasn't too fond of the QTE's though.
Sure you can Easily pump a game to the top with sales(halo 3 etc) but if anything is under the hype, it gets tossed. Brawl was like that to me, overhyped and then crushed my hopes when I played it.
Screw the reviewers. This game is awesome! I watched the Gamespot gameplay marathon where they played throughout the first 3 levels and it was awesome!!!!!! Link to video (it 2 1/2 hour long and has MAJOR SPOILERS!) http://www.gamespot.com/xbo...
The thing I disliked the most was the archaic level design. Its like, they want to give you all these cool powers and moves then they make you play through the most pedestrian level design. kill enemies, move to next screen, activate button, kill more enemies
haven't u heard? gamers are dumbasses--at least that's what the current "next gen" dumbing down of games has taught us. why should this game be any different?
...improved the physics and made using the light saber a lot deeper then I might consider buying. But I don't even think I'll rent it at this point. Other than some good visuals the demo was completely uninspired.
I completely disagree with this guy. I thought the demo was pretty fun, and Also, "No good Star Wars Games"??? C'mon I still play the first two KotORs and I loved The Jedi Knight games and the Rogue Squadron games, and the Battlefront Games.
if no one knows what i am referring to do this in the demo. Use the force to grab a stormtrooper and while you have him in the air press square and watch the lightsaber hit him then toss him across the room and wait for your saber to return. LOL this is exactly what i expected out of this game, sure the lightsaber is weak but that is for making the game playable who wants to one hit a guy and slice him in half that would be cool for about 5 minutes tops well at least to me anyway LOL. This game is a little god of war and ninja gaiden mixed together in terms of how it plays. I will be picking this up i just can't get enough tossing crap around with the force LOL its hilarious. Also using the force on the broken beams in the demo to bend them out and clip the tie fighters is sweet as well.
I felt it was a 7.5 type of game. Definitely a rental. I just want another KOTOR, and that's all the Star Wars game I need.
Must of what this guy said is true. except for that MGS4 no ice there I think he meant MGS2 what I think is happenig is that they're trying to go for the T rating. but think about it this way, lets say Lucas Arts Release the game T and has a special M rated DLC so the option to massacre troopers wouldn't even be in the game on less you downloaded, if you're a concern parent and you do your duties as a parent and censor your kids. then they wouldn't be able to DL Mature rated Downloads, is not like lucas can't do it., Capcom did it with Dead Rising, end of story.
