If you think that the Jedi are uninteresting because they don't throw force powers around like crazy, you really don't get why people like Jedi. That's the reason most people don't like the Star Wars franchise anymore, there is little reverence for established rules about Jedi. Sure, in Jedi Knight I could use my force powers, but I wasn't throwing huge rock piles at people, I was using subtle abilities to augment my lightsaber ability.

Lightsabers do dismember this time..  but stil only after hitting the guys repeatedly.  I'm also very disappointed to hear that they're focusing more on battling robots, the worst aspect of the first game and something that doesn't tie into the rest of Star Wars, EU or not.
 
I also can't get over how ridiculous the double reverse sabers look, especially when he's just running around.  Ahsoka uses the same stance in the Clone Wars, but she doesn't ALWAYS use it, not when it makes more sense to use a regular stance.  She even uses two lightsabers in the recent season, but again, does so in a fashion that makes much more sense, using one blade that's shorter to defend.

Oh look, it's Marty Stu: The Game!

God, I hate what they are doing with the setting and the characters of the old trilogy in this game. At least have the decency to put it after the end of the movies, like Raven did with the (better) series - Jedi Knight. Ugh.

Posted by Brodehouse

Assassin's Creed 2, now you have two hidden blades.
Force Unleashed 2, now you have two lightsabers.
Dead Rising 2, now you have two Chuck Greenes.
 
Bayonetta 2, she has two vaginas.
Heavy Rain 2, the Origami Killer kidnaps two kids.
Dragon Age 2, you have two demon babies.
Dante's Inferno 2, you go to double hell.

I rented the first one and didn't like it much.  This one looks almost the exact same still.  Also I've never liked dual wielding because it's much less satisfying to slice people when it's just a blur; I'd rather do a slow heavy attack that looks like it hurts.

Remember Star Wars. Like actual Star Wars. Ya, I don't either....

Posted by Andheez

1st one - Some of the greatest Rag Doll physics EVER.  Sometimes you could get knocked acros the board and rag out for like 30 seconds.  Not to mention I probably had to reboot 5-6 times because it glitched out.  I thought the story was mildly interesting, but this 2nd one seems a bit absurd, why exactly would they not continue with the original Starkiller?

Posted by Romination

Seems to be getting more story dramatic and spectacle based. 
 
Doesn't save the fact that lack of dismemberment is lame :/

Posted by TheHBK
@Besetment:
Yes, that would seem pretty amazing that you can't clone jedi, but if I recall, in the EU there was a whole story arc where Palpatine was cloned.  He is not a Jedi persay but a force user, so all I can ask is... Whats up with that!?! 
 
@sandweed: 
Yes, it is.  Because those fools were massively weak compared to real Jedi.  The game makes it known and you whip their ass like nothing in the game.  Also, he holds lightsabers like a fucking retard.  Its not cool man, get over it.

I jus had a bit of a Jedi-gasm. =_=

Edited by phrosnite

If only I cared for Star Wars... I hope they've learned their leason and this game turns out better than the first but considering they didn't to anything to fix the problems of the game and released  the same "broken" game for the PC... I am not getting optimistic.
Mass Effect universe > Star Wars universe

That trailer was pretty damn sweet.  Does anyone know if James Earl Jones is still the voice of Vader?

Posted by MonkeyKing1969

I think the most annoying thing about these games is how powerful you are in comparison to the world.  Snap you fingers by mid-game and you swirling people around like leaves in the wind.  How is that fun in the end? Being some powerful robs the whole game of any tension, so they are forced to make what you can do even more silly.  By the end you are pulling ships from the sky, snapping enemies’ necks without thought, and just getting bored.

Ugh...it looks alright. At this point I just feel sorry for Star Wars.  
 
Has anyone watched RedLetterMedia's Star Wars prequel trilogy reviews on Youtube? Episode III's will be out soon. If you haven't, go find them. It's highly entertaining stuff. If you have, then you should remember what he said about what makes Star Wars...uh Star Wars. The creators of these Force Unleashed games don't even know.

is that the actor from season 1 dexter that tried to pass himself off as the ice truck killer... the one that liked to stuff animals

Posted by drumpsycho89

this looks sooo decent!!!

Posted by Shadow71

bah, I'll probably get it...but it's pretty disappointing to have seen Lucas twice layoff so many staff after shipping this title.

Yeah I love his reviews and he's right about 'what makes star wars what it is' but I don't think that need apply to games since in games you can get away with a sub-par story by having fun gameplay and this game looks like its vastly improved over the original, that and people pretty much universally agree force unleashed had a better story and protagonist than the prequels though with how terrible they were its not hard :P

@dbz1995: .....ummm it's Star Wars. The whole story is impossible. Unless your nextdoor neighbor can shoot lightning out of his hands.... So why does the idea that there could be a clone in a madeup world seem ridiculous?  I mean its not like Modern Warfare 2 where they are trying to go for realism lol...

he's a clone of starkiller what's so ridiculous? "
Why would he create a clone of someone who's already betrayed him? It just makes it seem like Darth Vader is a fool.

Well it might be that Starkiller is as good or might be even stronger then Vader (Vader has more experience then Starkiller so he still has an edge over Starkiller). Also it seems that the clones aren't suppose to remember about their past.
 
Also people must remember that Starkiller isn't your ordinary Jedi. He's suppose to be unorthodox because he's been trained by Vader and droids thereby creating his own style of fighting.

Posted by Vao

its amazing how far lightsabers and force powers has come since the original trilogy. Personally i liked the combat in the first one and this one looks better, if they fix some of the terrible bugs and have a half believable story i'll be happy. not that i look for a complex story in games like this.

Trailers for just about anything Star Wars related always seem so epic thanks to the awesome music they can pull from, this one's no exception.

@Romination:  agreed, we need some dismemberment up in here.

@TheHBK:  You obviously don't know what hipster means, and it's kind of insulting to imply that all "true" star wars fans would dislike this game. What you have is called an opinion. Did you know that everyone has them? And that other peoples may, in some obviously very, very, very rare cases, differ from yours? Wow! So you should just, you know, write your comments as if you're speaking for yourself instead of a huge group of people, especially when your opinion is flawed. Thanks :P

@Teran:  Whoa there dude. As much as I can appreciate defending this game against the same old "Jedi wouldn't actually be able to tear a spaceship out of the sky" argument, you just said that this game is better than "most of the star wars universe". First of all, you are such a failure at using language. The star wars universe encompasses myriad movies, books, and games, not just the movies as you seem to think. Second, what the fuck are you talking about? More interesting than most of the star wars universe? That includes the first movie, probably the best example of the star wars universe ever made. You're either 10 years old and don't know wtf Star Wars is except for Revenge of the Sith, or your opinions just fail.

Lucas Arts, please start using facial expressions on your in game models.  
 
I'm still looking forward to this.

Posted by npeterson08

Honestly didn't think this game was good enough to warrant a sequel.

Posted by MeatSim

I would rather have Battlefront 3 or a new Empire at War.

Jedi are far more powerful in the books than they are in the movies.  The Star Wars IP in general is so prone to failure it really is amazing George Lucas hasn't managed to kill it off yet by and large because the book authors understand that in order for Jedi to be interesting they have to be powerful.
 
You are stroking your ego while spewing forth insults rather than an actual argument to support your statement.  Kind of ironic that you are defending the likes of Jar Jar Binks all the while calling my opinions fail.

Do you honestly think the decline in Star Wars popularity has anything to do with Force Unleashed?
 
Yeah, Force Unleashed and other parts of the IP that portray the jedi as being more powerful than Criss Angel are definitely the cause for this decline.  It has nothing to do with the merciless digital re-edits or the 28 different special editions that were basically all the same, or Jar Jar Binks, or George Lucas generally driving the IP into the ground.
 
The only reasons the Star Wars universe remains relevant today are the authors of the books, the clone wars cartoon (not the cgi), and the Force Unleashed.
 
Yhe most powerful thing we saw a Jedi do in the original trilogy was self-vaporize and then haunt Luke Skywalker like a friggen ghost.  Despite this, somehow Jedi are feared and widely considered to be powerful yet we see no justification for this reputation whatsoever in the movies.
 
Kyle Katarn (the guy in the Dark Forces games) became an extremely powerful Jedi.  In the games you could shoot lightning, heal yourself, and do many other things Jedi were not capable of or only capable of in a limited capacity in the movies.  At the peak of his power he could have very easily grabbed a space ship the size of a tie fighter and thrown it off course.

@Teran:  I think you misunderstood what I was saying. No, I do not think TFU is the cause of the decline of SW, merely a result. I was replying to someone who said they liked these games more than the JK series because they let you do all that crazy shit. I know that Jedi CAN do all that stuff, its just it was never done like that before and it looks insanely dumb in that game. Jedi are not unstoppable forces, TFU just tries to make you feel way badass that way, and in doing so ruins the spirit of the Jedi.

I see.  I'm sorry about that, I did misunderstand your comment.
 
I didn't realize you were replying to someone else and didn't take their original post into consideration.
 
The Jedi Knight (Dark Forces) games were excellent games portraying Kyle Katarn while he was relatively light on Jedi Power... but the primary focus on the games was the shooting and environment exploring the Star Wars universe in ways no one had before...   I personally wouldn't compare the two.
 
I disagree with your thoughts on Jedi though.  In the movies it is true they were not an unstoppable force, yet they had a reputation so grand that unless they *were* an unstoppable force at some point there was no way they could deserve the reverence and fear they received from the average person.  The image of Jedi was shattered for many fans when we watched a bunch of people capable of sensing motive and emotion get completely blindsided by a bunch of clones and even those who weren't ambushed were slaughtered as though they were nothing.
 
Force Unleashed may be a natural reaction caused by that pathetic portrayal but to be honest Force Unleashed is much closer the feats Jedi would have to have accomplished to deserve their reputation for both good and evil.
 
Yes, a lot of TFU is over the top like pulling down a star destroyer... though it was no easy feat for Starkiller to do so, nor was it easy for Yoda when he did it in the cartoon made by the Samura Jack guy... but slaughtering hundreds of minions effortlessly and crushing their toys with the force looks and feels good and honestly should have been in the movies.
 
Jedi are supposed to be very skilled at a wide range of things but in the movies we generally witness nothing but their failures.  They are gullible, easily deceived, easily demonized, easily manipulated, and easily killed.  The spirit of the Jedi was ruined long before TFU came out... though not by the Jedi Knight/Dark Forces games, but by the movies and George Lucas.
