    Well, that does make things more interesting. I like Metroidvania.

    That makes it way more interesting. Hopefully they are trying not to overhype it.

    That does sound interesting, the video they showed of the combat looked absolute garbage, the AI was dreadful.... if the game was a linear hack and slash fest I can see that getting boring quickly.

    I'm more interested after hearing the above, will have to keep an eye on it.

    Looks like Jedi Knight, except slow/easy and you cant use guns. Also none existent AI...

    I'd have said Force Unleashed, but yeah I get your point. Which makes it even more baffling that they used it - multiple sources since have said that the game is so much more than that. I'm not saying get your hopes up that it'll be good or anything, but it seems it's definitely a different beast to how it was demoed at E3.

    Yep at least they did show some gameplay. Unlike most of the others at E3 who just turned up with a bunch of cutscenes, which screams "our game sucks".

    Also needs some actually bodily damage. Storm troopers cut in half, arms lopped off etc. Much like a 'real' lightsaber would do. BUt then that'd push up the PEGI rating which means all the kids can't buy it = less profits.

    Personally not too fussed but hope they can atleast find some way to do it where there is some kind of interaction rather than the blade just clipping through the model which looks so janky in this day and age.

    It looks inferior to the old Jedi Knight games. Can't use blasters, AI looks brain dead, combat is very slow and seems to be mostly button mashing. Main character is basically just some Chad with no personality.

    EA so probably full of gambling boxes in some form, despite what they claim. I'm guessing no mod support either so it'll be gathering dust after one (probably short) play through...

    That gameplay demo from yesterday was great. I'm more interested in it now than I was after E3.

    Kind of feel they should release an actual demo to play for this.
    Like force unleashed

    So in the gameplay trailer - when the Stormtroopers drop their blasters, they can't be picked up? :(

    No loot boxes, just surprise mechanics!

    After the first cut scene when he goes through the doors there was a rack of weapons on his left. Pretty sure I saw pop-up text when the droid went past them. Does that mean there are pickups? I don't know!

    I'm on the fence - I'm also not a huge fan of quicktime and similar mechanics though but it looks like they've got the potential there for an epic game they just need someone with a bit of common sense to un**** certain elements that will drag it down but I bet they don't.
