Default The Force Unleashed 2

Some Force Unleashed 2 action for you all, two lightsabres will make the game twice as good. And ten times more enemies to kill .

The video was awesome, but the first game...sucked. A lot. The gameplay was fun to mess around with at first, and the cut scenes looked wonderful, but in the end I regret buying it in the first place, and the only reason why I haven't traded it in is because it's absolutely worthless.

If the game is as gnarly as that tidbit of a video, I will be happy, but I am wary. Very wary. Though knowing my soft spot for Star Wars, I'll probably end up getting it down the road anyway.

Apologies for double posting, but I just played through the demo on Xbox Live. I'd place the length at around 10 minutes of gameplay if you take the time to look around.

I have to say, the graphics in Force Unleashed II are amazing. Character models are stellar and the environments are pretty sexy. The gameplay remains exactly the same, though. Give or take a few new features like the dual lightsabers and a few new Force tricks. If you enjoyed how the first game flowed, you'll have no trouble getting through the action.

I don't expect the plot to do nothing more but urinate on the established Expanded Universe canon just like the first game, though I do recommend people try it out.

Ah but then again this will be canon, whereas the Expanded Universe isn't canon (cheers George for pissing off so many Star Wars fans, it's quite amusing).

Why didn't Vadar just saber him when he had him chained up? Why did he order his down syndrome henchmen to do it? Was it time for his tea break? Did he have to use the little cyborg's room?

I can deal with lots of things in a game; boring gameplay, cliche plot/dialog, poor graphics, as long as the game has one other redeeming feature I'll play it, but the one thing I cannot forgive is having an impractical bad guy with muffins for brains.

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...

The Expanded Universe is canon. Things like the Yuuzhan Vong War, the Dark Nest Crisis and the 2nd Galactic Civil War did happen, Lucas has admitted they are completely canon.

Yeah, the 'Expanded Universe' is basically the term used for all the stuff outside of the films. Such as the novels, comic books, video games and all that stuff. It is all generally considered canon unless otherwise stated or retconned.

Now I feel like playing Dark Forces II. I can never get tired of that game.
