I played the demo over the weekend and liked it for the most part. I didn't like how you have to stand still when blocking enemy rounds. I wish it were like JKII where you can run up to the bastids while blocking and do some funky slash moves.

I'll wait until Jay buys the game and then I'll borrow it from him.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

It got some bad reviews at EGM. They said you get stuck in walls on both the ps3 and 360 versions and that every enemy you encounter has a way to neutralize your force powers so they aren't as all powerful as we'd all hoped for.

No word on the Wii edition other than Nintendo is announcing an upgrade for their Wii remote to allow for better control and this ticked off George Lucas who spent a lot of time tweaking the Force Unleashed to suit the Wii. Now Lucas Arts is planning another game just for the Wii that lightsaber intense.

Blah, Blah, Blah

The game got mediocre reviews from IGN, videogames.com. XPlay on G4TV really dissed it, and even showed OBVIOUS programming flaws, such as not being able to go through open doors, and the achievements having 'default text' as a goal. On one level, the score doesn't accrue at all.

I'll be waiting for the patched version to hit the store shelves before plunking down $$ on it.
