I played the Xbox 360 demo of the game! It is easily one of the best Star Wars games ever. I highly recommend it to all.

Stormtrooper abuse is always good fun!

Still, you're a Sith Apprentice and you're killing Stormies. What's up with that? Unless I'm really misinformed, if so, please re-educate me.

No one is allowed to know of DV's apprentice. Not even the Emperor. No witnesses are allowed. It's explained in a vid before the gameplay.

Ah ok, now it makes perfect sense.

Still, killing Stormtroopers makes me... sad. I love playing as the Empiyah in SW: Battlefront II and blasting those damn Rebels to pieces!!!

Being the bad guy is always more satisfying...

Also, I really wish Star Wars was only one word, because then the game title could be shortened to

Starwars The Force Unleashed = STFU

Best acronym evah!!

Isn't it usually written as Starwars, anyway? Also, congratulations. That's going in my sig. Very Happy

Doesn't Van Halen have an album acronymed as FUCK?

But anyways the demo was awesome, bisecting an AT-ST was very satisfying, though not as satisfying as sniping an Ewok in SW:BF.

Actually having to battle a Rancor is going to be sweet as well. Y'know, without the help of giant falling gates or explosive rancor bait (cough, KotOR, cough).

lol, so true.

But KotOR is still one of the best RPGs ever, despite what some people here would say.

It told a very compelling, good story with many different possibilities and paths. It had excellent characters who were fun to talk to throughout the game. It had pretty good graphics for its age too.

KotOR had a story? I was always too busy Force Storming and Choking people to notice a story...

Just kidding, KotOR is indeed one of the best RPGs. Right after Fallout.

Master Chainsaw: You are now banned, my lord.
Chancellor Salvatore: Simon! I told you it would come to this! I was right. The Moderators are taking over!
Master Chainsaw: The oppression of the Adbots will never return! You have lost!
Chancellor Salvatore: ... No. No, no, YOU WILL CRASH!!!
[Salvatore strikes Chainsaw with Denial of Service, only to have it deflected back at him, slowly disfiguring his account]
Chancellor Salvatore: [to Simon] HE'S A TRAITOR!!!
Master Chainsaw: [straining] He is the traitor!
Chancellor Salvatore: I have the power to save your posts! You must choose!
Master Chainsaw: DON'T LISTEN TO HIM, SIMON!
Chancellor Salvatore: [apparently weakening] I can't hold it any longer... I-I-I... am too weak...
[At last, he seems forced to stop]
Chancellor Salvatore: Help me! Help me! I... I can't hold on any longer...
Master Chainsaw: I am going to end this, once and for all!
Simon_Says: You can't. He must stand trial.
Master Chainsaw: He has control over the Forum and the Admins! He's too dangerous to be kept alive!
Chancellor Salvatore: I'm too weak... Oh, don't ban me... please...
Simon_Says: It's not the Moderator way. He must live!
[Chainsaw ignores Simon, and prepares his ban hammer]
Chancellor Salvatore: Please don't. [more afraid] Please don't!
Simon_Says: NO!
[Simon suddenly severs Chainsaw’s hand off with his hammer. Salvatore drops his act and again strikes Chainsaw with Denial of Service]
Chancellor Salvatore: POWER!!! INVINVIBLE POWER!!!

I should be obliged to diverge from your opinion as the graphics were not very impressive, even for it's time. Well in point of fact, it was really the choppy frame rate in the second game that really annoyed the hell out of me.

Chancellor Salvatore, you may have struck me down (with your INVINVIBLE POWER*!!!), but I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

*And terrible acting that Van Damme would be ashamed of.

For a mid-age Xbox title, I thought they were pretty good in the first game. There are so many graphics, audio and interface bugs in the second game... it makes me sick. They really should have increased the graphics for the second game too.

Yeah, I bought KOTOR II for the pc because they update these bugs, and the Restoration Project is nearly complete. The first game was very good though, just a bit glitchy.

So, far, pretty fun. Not a fan of the how you specifically press for boss battles.

Got a much lower score than I was hoping, from Gamespot anyway.

7.5 if I'm remembering right. I'm still gonna rent it.

Now, lets see if they can not fuck up their new Indiana Jones game.

Yeah, people have been saying it is a short game, but I tend to take longer than average to play them. Overall, I'm still enjoying it. You use a lot of force power(s) and most fingers and thumbs. A big part of the game (at least for me) is using force grip (focus on object, hold right trigger) position (left joystick is left to right; right joystick is up/down) point in a direction (and let go of trigger). My how games have advanced since Nintendo. I still am not thrilled with how the "end" with boss battles involves timed pressing of select buttons.
