So I just played the demo for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and let me say that I am thoroughly impressed. George Lucas has done it again, I’m talking you don’t even have to like the Star Wars to like this game. If the full game plays like the demo then I am definitely putting it on reserve right now. The developers of SW:TFU definitely understand what it means to put together a very hot demo. The demo gives you all the major components of the game, is long enough for you to get into it but doesn’t give you too much. You are Galen Marek, codenamed Starkiller and you are Darth Vader’s secret apprentice. To accomplish your mission you will have to master all aspects of the force and in the end you will have to choose.
I am calling it right now, right here on ZKG if this game even has a semblance of a good story line let alone a really good one and has a decent length of gameplay we will definitely be talking about this game as one of the top of the year. I mean it seems like they have definitely captured the force in all its glory for this game. I mean, I did a force grab on one of the soldiers and flicked him across the level like a piece of paper, it was awesome. The only problem I did have was sometime the camera angle got out of control and it did it a little more than I would like but most of the time R3 will snap you back into place. This was my only complaint that I could see and while the game looks to be mostly finished they might still fix this either way its a minor issue.
If you haven’t downloaded this demo, you need to you will be playing it over and over. All I know is that I have been waiting for the next round of good games to come out and it definitely seems like September 16th is definitely a date you need to mark on your calendar. And if you are reading this and haven’t started downloaded the demo yet what are you waiting for, go get it!!
