    I'm pretty sure it'll be worth full price and more. The thing is, the Force Powers are the appeal of the game. They don't want you being at Sith Lord-like power in a little demo, it's a simple taste of things to come. They still give you a nice sense of power here though. Ripping TIE Fighters off the hanger walls and then chucking them for instance never gets old, nor is Force Gripping a helpless stormtrooper, then lift them up and as they cry for help, watch as an incoming TIE slams into it and explodes.

    If you've seen any of the trailers, you know what kind of stuff you can pull off as you progress throughout the game, and it's insane. As far as the demo went, it did what it needed to accomplish. The game was playable, the first half or so of one of the earliest missions if not the first (not counting Vader's), and an early simple mini-boss battle on the side.

    haven't played the demo but I already came to the conclusion that it wasn't worth a DVDr DL. I am gonna be getting it for the Wii.

    I thought it was really good. If the game is long enough or has good replay I'm buying.

    Since previous Star Wars action games were so fun, this game is on top of my wish list.
    I'm very looking forward to playing Vader, I heard he is playable at the beginning of the game.

    After replaying the demo again on their version of hard, I need to place more emphasis on the Force being the focus point. A majority of the enemies I fought against on this difficulty I relied on the Force a lot. Grabbed a crate or something, shocked it midair, then chucked it at a group of soldiers as a bomb and killing off a bunch in one throw. Relying on the hanging TIE Fighters in the hanger to take out the initial few groups to make your life easier. Needing to use Lightning to keep the AT-ST from stomping all over you.

    You'll be using the Force more than the saber I'd imagine. And in a game called The Force Unleashed, that's what I'd expect. This game is going to be so damn good when it's finally out.

    From the trailer, it appears your hands will be busy chaining force combos.
    But there could be more lightsaber oriented builds.. I found A+LB, X+Y+Y pretty fun in the demo.

    It was on when I went round a friends today. I was reminded very much of Jedi power battles for the PS1 (although better by a long way).

    Either way it looks as though the slightly clunky force powers of the jedi knight series (one of the only series based on star wars that I find any good) will be put to rest.

    Pity there is to be no PC version (it was that game that Lucas arts said it would not happen right?) as some really nice mods could be made.

    saw on gamerankings tonight that the official xbox magazine has given the game 75% it didnt seem that bad. i dont really care for what reviewers say i usually judge the game myself by playing it.
