Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Discussion
I agree with you 100%, 5/10 and that's just for the new engines, They should have played less with the engines, And made a story that would fit the title for being STAR war's.
Bioware kicked ass when they made KOTOR 1 Nothing's been a good game to me since then, Besides Fable.
KOTOR 2 was made by Obsidian, not Bioware. The reason it was unfinished was because LucasArts gave them a 12 month development deadline and wanted the Xbox version out for Xmas 2004 (the PC version came out in Feb 2005). Obsidian, being a brand new dev studio at the time, didn't have the clout to push for a delayed release. They tried to do too much and couldn't finish it properly in the allotted time, so they just scrapped a bunch of content and cobbled together a half-assed ending to get it out the door.
LA has no excuses with TFU. It was delayed twice as I recall and has been in development for 2 years at least. Unfortunately, pretty much everything I've heard about the game in the last few days points to mediocrity at best. It seems like these days most of a game's development budget goes to the marketing department to hype the game, rather than concentrating on actually making a game good.
Really ashame, Although I will say - This trash will not stop me from getting KOTOR 3 whenever it/if it's released :P, Just for the single fact of the plot twist in the First KOTOR.
Plus, The old Republic rocks, New republic is all about a emo kid that is mad at the world [Anakin.]
But on a strickly game design point it is pretty average. Having read the Novel for the game already I would rate it slightly above average from normal Star Wars fare.
However the environmental art is really good, unfortunately the character art is not the cinematic animation for the characters looks bad also.
All in all a mixed bag imo. 6/10 from me, good enough to play but you may want to rent it and save the $65 bucks or wait and get it on the cheap in 6-10 months.
