I'm a little afraid that the demo will extremely short, I had hoped they'd give you a good chunk of the first level with vader, but now I'm thinking otherwise. What do you guys think?

Pretty excited. If the demo is good and solid, it means I'll be even more broke this winter.

Judging the history of Star Wars games with KoTOR and Jedi Academy aside, they usually suck. I hope the demo is good because if it is I might pick it with the money I get from Christmas.

Haha are you referring to those garbo movie-based star wars games?

I certainly hope not, THOSE WERE TERRIBLE.

This is clearly in another league.

how in the hell could you think that KOTOR was a bad game? It was known as the best Star Wars game of all time and it still is. Personally, I can't wait for the demo. Mostly due to the fact that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed has looked nothing like a game but more like a tech demo. Everyone has said it works and plays well so i cant wait to try it for myself.

i'm not really that exciting for the game. Like the other guy said, I really feel like the controls aren't going to be on point, however the cutscenes will be good. It doesn't interests me in actually buying it. I'll rent it. I tell what game I'm excited for the Ratchet & Clank: Quest for booty. lol.

It's cool, keep in mind I don't know too much about the game, but it just seems like the same old stuff. Game set in the Starwars universe, going around through linear levels defeating the same enemies, sure you get to use Jedi powers and some cool characters, but I've done it all before.

I'll see how the demo is though.

Then I guarantee you that in a lot of people's minds, you don't have much say in the matter if you didn't like KOTOR.

I agree. I liked Jedi Academy. It was a very good game. I mean the only problem I had with it was the camera, but other than that it wasn't so bad.

I'll be downloading it for sure. From the trailers I have seen, the only control issue was accurately throwing objects with the force throw, but practice will eliminate that problem. I doubt it will be the first level with Vader that is in the demo... I'd expect it to pick up not long after you start with the Apprentice and go through to maybe the first mini-boss kind of fight... if there is one. i dont really care though.... I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

You realize both KOTORs are some of the best RPG of last generation right?

And by the way, this game looks really crappy, suck ass graphics, horrible gameplay, a physic engine made with their feet, its just another "milk the franchise to rip-off all the money of little kids that dont know ANYTHING about games" kind of video game.

I love the Star Wars movies and from the games I've played, they are usually good, but I hated KOTOR too.... I played for about an hour and couldn't take it. btw I have played the first two Rogue Squadrons(great), Super Star Wars(hard but cool), KOTOR(own 1 and 2), two versions of Episode 3(Xbox and DS, not awful but mediocre), and the two Battlefront games(which are the best from what I've played). Anyway, downloading that demo is the first thing I'm going to do tomorrow. I NEED to see how the controls work.

I really don't understand how people are thinking you are saying KOTOR and Jedi Academy suck, obviously most people can't understand basic english. He's saying most games BESIDES those two suck.


With that said, I hope this game is good. We really need some more good games on the market that are non arcade.

This game looks like a Jedi Academy game... only without the useless non-force weapons and the force x10 in power. It looks totally kick ***.

I was upset after watching the latest trailer video. Why don't the producers just go ahead and ruin the enitre plot for us? Granted the order may have been rearranged, I think I pretty much know the story now.

One of the main reasons that I was considering this was the lore. Seems like I know the key elements now. It dropped a couple notches for me in desirability considering so many other games that I want are coming out before end of year.

Other than the romance thing thrown in it, what else was spoiled? it just showed a lot of fighting with the jedi and non-jedi. We have no idea how it leads up to that or how it ends or if there are twists after the fact...

I think people think of spoilers a little too harshly, either that or you really shouldn't be involved in forums / previews. A good example of this is you can play as Luigi in SMG... That's a spoiler?! there are few things that deserve the title of spoiler in games these days. I don't think anything they showed could cause someone to identify major spoilers at this point.

It's my hope that you are correct.

In answer to your question, the romance reveal and Vader's words about "feelings" leads towards the apprentice turning to the "good" side for love. The battle with Vader (though perhaps preliminary training) strengthens this analysis (though I obviously do not have a complete picture).

Therefore, my opinion was that too much was revealed. I would have preferred merely gameplay high-lighted and no story revealed.

I will take your final advice into consideration: I may limit my preview watching in the future.
