Images of SW: Force Unleashed

Lucasarts releases a new batch of screenshots of Star Wars: Force Unleashed, focusing on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions. Graphically it looks really good, and the art direction looks like it has gone through some fine tuning. Very promising title.

\o/ really nice!

I am afraid of too much delays in this game.

I
have read a lot of stuff about problems in Lucas Arts. :/

The new art direction makes the game a whole lot better! Now if they only added Soul Caliber Bonus characters. ^^

What's with the nasty flat circle things in pics 1 and 10? They just look out of place, maybe they're fine in motion.

Looks nice other than the ridiculous way the main character holds his light sabre.

Yeah, how is it ridiculous?

very colourful. should be a blast to play.

check out the film "the hunted" with christopher lambert. he gets taught by a samurai to hold his sword in a similar fashion.

<3 <3 I agree with moroboshi, I prefer the traditional style

He's a fuckin' Sith. They reek style & Rad.
Jedis are more old fashioned & most of the time try to be wise looking.

Even Darth Maul used twin blades, to be difrent... don't see the problem.

Last internally developed game?
Commented on 2008-06-19 23:25:08
This game is simply icredible from what I've seen so far. Technically it's right up on top! The game still has to prove itself in many aspects (story, gameplay etc), but the promise it posseses is incredible!

It's like holding a gun sideways, gangsta style. It makes no sense, and looks ridiculous. He'd spend most of his time flailing his arms wildly just to make any contact with an opponent, then probably burn off most of his elbow by mistake.

That's it exactly, it's an attempt to be 'down with the kids'. Fails completely for me. It just looks juvenile and comical.

i thought darth vadar only had one son? is this character his son or just his apprentice?

Holy shit, just saw the latest video interview at IGN and at the very end you see him battling this robotic monster. It looks similar to the ones in Too Human, but extremely well excecuted; Great sense of impact, fantastic graphics/design and excellent animations.

Silicon Knights...watch and learn!

I don't see the problem with how he holds the lightsaber.

How does it look juvenile?

Fighting styles exist in sword combat where you hold a sword like that, it's not uncommon
Commented on 2008-06-20 00:58:55
I can't edit my post anymore BUT

I just watched the video over at IGN and I gotta say... aside from the new tech this game reminds me of Ninja Gaiden a bit.

Pictures 5, 7, and 8 look very good. In 5 I just love how the stormtroopers armor looks, with the lightning reflecting off it. 8 has such a cool enviornment and alot of detail.
Commented on 2008-06-20 02:47:05
i would like to have "limb cutting" like NG2...i mean, a lightsaber is NOT a baseball bat...so why didn't he cut off enemy arms/legs/head every 5 seconds? :(

anyway, game is cool, no doubt about it XD
Commented on 2008-06-20 03:01:28
He doesn't hold his lightsaber that way because he wants to be cool. That's a way to hold your sword in a japanese swordfighting art. Holding the sword that way, you have a lot of new options for moves and surprising attacks.

    rayy Now I usually get games in just 5 seconds before on close beta usually it took arround 30 seconds to a minute. There is a big increase of new players on the beta. (1 Hour ago)
  • rayy
    rayy Yeah agree with Grift. It is open beta so the thing is full of scrubs now, but once you level up the match making will get better. now you finds games really fast to. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX I think once the community matures and digs into the game it will be test your patience (a little) less. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wouldn't let open beta teams sour you on the general match making experience. I can tell ya that the closed beta was much better than this and in general people were much more mindful of team comp (1 Hour ago)

    Tinks but when you have a bunch of friends together it's magic. The more the better. Sort of a party game? (1 Hour ago)
