Hello all, well i just finished the game and hell what a game it is. Very enjoyable from the offset, tho there are a few bugs in it that need to be squashed, not to worry tho the game is fully playable even with these minor bugs, thanks to the handy autosave and checkpoint save. The bugs i mentioned are as follows...

1.Game may CTD when fighting in fury mode, cause outdated graphics drivers, NVIDIA ONLY (www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk)as i do not have an ati card to test, solution = update direct x (www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3)& graphics drivers.

2.Some cut scenes towards the end may get choppy, this only lasts a few moments, probable cause due to have graphics set to max, as lowering the graphics solved this issue.

3.The final fight with vader, some issues with the platforms, occasionally u will randomly get dropped off the platforms which causes death, and have to restart from last checkpoint, also there where a few CTD's during the return throw of the cloning vats, which vader throws at you. I don;t have a clue as to why this happens, best best is to disable trainer and fight it out the non cheat way (better stability i found, it could be an issue with infinite health)


Anyhows back to the game, each level is playable and enjoyable, with a good variety of units to saber or crush with the force, Quite a few from the first instalment however many new units are included, not featured this time round are the dark troopers... instead there is a new cloaking unit , which can be quite annoying as they can move extremely fast best way to counter then is to hit em with force lightning first then if ur close enough use a grapple attack .

Each level is beautifully designed, with many little extras here and there, i noticed there seems to be a lot more interaction available now, in terms of the environment. Also a big bonus is the new jedi mind trick trait comes in very handy against walkers and the like, however it will not work on bosses.

Early into the game u will come up against the gorko boss , now in one of my other posts i was asking for help, i actually figured it out tho myself how to kill it, it can be very annoying i spent well over 3 hours trying, until i found these video's, hope this comes in handy.

The story is quite compelling and links very well into the original, and also links in well with the gap between EP 3 and a new hope , i will let u decide on that, i don;t wanna give to much away.


As i mentioned in one of my other posts i would like to point out for PC games the controls are much more stable and user friendly, both with a gamepad and mouse & keyboard, doing combos is also much easier, but i will warn you don't expect a load, it is more of a hit & bash, many moves will eventually come to look the same.

As for the amount of content that was this games let down, with the exception of that early mission against the boss the game is quite fast to play through, if your looking for a long game this is not for you, however it does setup nicely towards the end for a 3rd instalment, Vader is captured and the alliance have him, but vader still has a hold over our heroine.


Yoda is featured in the game however, it is more of a cutscene sequence, you don;t actually get to battle with him, and his dialog is rather short *Sorry yoda fans*, also the emperor is not featured in this game, which for me was a little bit of a letdown, the old man is my fav character lol however Bobba Fett is in the game, again tho you don;t get to fight him unfortunately. Again tho Fett is most certainly going to be a big boss in the 3rd instalment, towards the end for TFU2 that becomes apparent.

All in all i will give this game a 7/10 based of a strong story, Improved controls over the original and less bugs on release, there is definite room for improvement in regards to content, i suspect tho this will soon be remedied with some DLC / Addon content.


hope you guys have as much fun playing the game as i did, if you need any help on missions feel free to start a thread or pm me, i will get back to you ASAP.

Addendum ... The challenge mode i forgot to mention, is also a great feature makes for some added carnage as-well as some unlocks

Addendum 2.... I have just found out from a reliable source the PC version of the game has been locked @ 30FPS that may account for the jitters with the transition to and from videos


All the best


Dj

Well Daohor its definitely worth the buy in my opinion, and like i say there will most certainly be DLC/addons so should last a while also, not to mention if you think about how long it took em to make TFU2 then TFU3 won;t be to far behind to follow up the story.

And yup like i say if you find yourself stuck on a particular area/ boss / level don't hesitate to give me a shout ill be happy to help yah out.

Tho the big credit really goes to Cal + PW and the rest of the true heroes of Cheat happens, me i just help out when i can on the forums hehe.
