That's just some shitty photoshop job someone did, not what it will actually look like.

I'll laugh really hard if/when MS brings that out. So many "hard core" gamers complained about the Wii/WiiMote saying how gimmicky it was.

I'm picking up SW:TFU on the Wii day one fo sho.

And it is. But as someone pointed in another thread, at least you'll no longer have to buy a Wii once MS releases their own gimmicky controller.

Either way, as much as I think it might be cool to use my wiimote for swinging a lightsaber I'm thinking I'll be much happier with the 360 version.

I personally don't find the controller gimmicky, only the way some game designers are using it is gimmicky. But that's a whole other thread.

I can't wait to swing my WiiMoteSaber.

That looks badass. Could it be the first good Star Wars game since Rogue Squadron II?*

Looks sweet. Gotta say that the voice of Vader sucks and it also sucks that they gave away that you'll face off with Vader in the end --- and obviously lose.

Well it takes place between III and IV. With a shred of forward thinking you already know your character didn't last as Vader's apprentice, nor can he succeed at toppling Vader.

I personally hate all these controllers and wheels too they don't make the games more fun they make them more like a chore, but I applaud nintendo for bringing more people into the video game market the only problem is most of the people that got the wii last year are completely bored with it now, and before you ask they have a lot of games not just wiisports. All I know is if I want to go golf or play tennis or whatever I go outside. The rest about this TFU is that it looks cool and I am excited

Hello? KOTOR?
Forgot about that one. I'll amend my statement... last great Star Wars game that actually took place during the movie's timeline not a million years post/prior.

You guys play the demo?

OMG!!

Seriously, that's the best demo I've ever played. Judging from the demo, it's the best Star Wars game I've ever played.

So I take it this is both the first demo you have ever played as well as the first Star Wars game?

I am seriously disappointed after playing the demo. I felt it had a complete lack of polish and wasn't graphically impressive at all either. The controls were also pretty poor. I doubt I will even rent the game after playing the demo.

What?

The controls were fine. I love picking up stormtroopers and just floating them around. I had high expectations with combo system because I knew it wouldn't be able to compete against Soul Calibur. But it was pretty good for what it was. Looks like there's a lot more moves and combos that will be in the finished game. I thought the graphics were pretty good.

I pre-ordered it at Amazon after playing it.

You might want to read the reviews at OXM (7.5) and PTM (7.0) before you finalize that purchase. Both reviewers were really frustrated with aspects of the gameplay that seem very out of date for a next-gen game and said it wasn't as good as some older Star Wars games.

what? you must have a lousy tv, I thought the graphics were fantastic, one of the best looking games I ever played. Extremely sharp, lighting, textures, reflections were fantastic.

I loved the demo, Controls were easy, especially if you do the training before the demo. I love how the stormtroopers would react when you picked them up. I also loved picking up the tie fighters and throwing them around, the battle against the walker was pretty awesome too.

I cant wait till this game comes out now, I am sold.

I am inbetween you guys on this demo. I posted in the 360 thread that I felt that this demo was for the fanboys to realize it didn't suck and not to convince people to go buy the game if they didn't want to already. All that said I like it the first thought is that it is cool nothing more.

Are those reviews in print Magazines? I couldn't find anything online. I'm still keeping my pre-order. The game has a few things go for it:

1. It's 3rd person -I'm more inclined to give a mediocre 3rd person game a chance than a perfect 10 first-person game. Especially one where you fight with melee weapons and not with guns.

2. It's Star Wars -More specifically it takes place in the Original Trilogy timeline. Shadows of the Empire for Nintendo 64 is my all-time favorite Star Wars game because of the setting and because it's 3rd person.

3. I'm starving for a good 3rd person game. -Grand Theft Auto 4 was a colossal disappointment. Ghostbusters has been delayed till next year. Fallout 3 looks amazing but won't have that till early November.

100% correct sir. Sub-par next gen graphics and some of the worst controls this generation. I had mild expectations for this game but having it release on every console known to man on the exact same day was not gonna work.
