Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Demo
are you sure it supports all ports?

Unless it's a blatant lie, yeah.

Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Demo
How about re-reading the previous page? I and several others posted full list of supported platforms, those included Wii and DS. The only platform the game won't be available on is PC, but that doesn't mean there won't be a PC port if the game is a financial success on consoles. The game is for consoles, so there were no lies.

Wow, people need to read more than just their own posts and the ones immediately after.  Sometimes it seems like if you're not the first person to reply to a question your answer is ignored...  even if your answer is the correct one...

Welcome to the Internet. 

That said, I enjoyed the demo and will probably pick this up on the 360 at some point, or at least rent it. Don't see a difference between that and the ps3 version, and the Wii version sounds like it might be fun, but less impressive graphically, maybe I will rent that at some point.

I like the sound of blasters and lightsabers, and the action was solid and relatively easy to get into. The demo was "fun" which is all I ever want from a game :)

I don't think so. No doubt TFL will be a financial success, but so were the rest of the Rogue Squadron games which weren't ported to the PC.

PC game industry is dying. Consoles are more profitable, it seems.

PLayed a bit on my bros 360. COmpletely linear with oh so mundane combat and the FOrce doesn't feel very "force"ful..

You're like the new Takashi! But without his occasional pangs of self-awareness!

I didn't actually enjoy the demo all that much. It kept reminding me of Jedi Outcast, which had almost all the same force powers (excepting the material-deformation physics and the Euphoria AI.) Yet Jedi Outcast was more satisfying and fun.

And the lightsaber combat wasn't as good, either.

Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Demo
disappointing  :sigh:

Felt like a broken Devil May Cry Clone (Camera sucks and there is neither a possibility to evade fire properly nor can you deflect Blaster Shots properly, although I think it's possible to upgrade that ability in the full game), lightsaber combat is totally unrewarding and weak (almost unnecessary), AI is stupid and the list goes on...

Will still buy the game (->story) but not now, maybe when it's down to 25 bucks.

Does crazy Software Engineering for a living, until he finally musters the courage to start building games for real. Might never happen.

Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Demo
It's just a demo, right? The full version maybe better.

Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Demo
I doubt that the full version has another camera or lightsaber system pal  :lol:

you can judge by the gameplay videos that the demo was a pretty good indication how the game plays out.

Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Demo
This cartoon effectively killed any interest in this title as a PC gamer, because the first panel is TRUE.  That's probably the worst reasoning I've ever heard for not releasing a game on the PC.
Everything is better with monkeys.  Even pie.

That is the best first post I have ever seen.

Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Demo
wont be coming to PC. Believe me. Do you really think they bring it to every god-damn system out there (including DS :confused:) but the PC, just to release it on PC later?

Rogue Squadron was released, Rogue Squadron 2 and 3 were only for the Gamecube, they didn't come out of the PS or XBox either.

A lot of console fans want to believe the PC gaming is dead, it isn't, it isn't even close to dead, in fact, including the MMO market, the PC Sector makes more money than any console.

Exactly like Rockstar did with GTA4 you mean?
