- So as many of you know, the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed demo was released not to long ago. I picked it up on my PS3, and began playing immediately. My first thought were that the combat was a bit dull, however, I've been wrong before. As it turns out, I was terribly wrong.
Not having played many star wars games before, my immediate thought was to run up to enemy soldiers and stab them with my lightsaber, but there really is much more to do with the combat. The close quarters is indeed fun, especially with the new combos in which you can add in force lightning or a force push. You can even force choke hostiles, then throw your lightsaber at them. The lightsaber combat is amazing, and no doubt many people would buy this game just for that.
However, the aspect that captured my mind was the power of the force. By this I mean the ability to grab an object with the force, and sweep it across the enemies flank, throw it at nearby explosives, or just completely smash one unit again a wall. It's not something you'll be able to do well on your first try. It'll need some practice before your a master of the force.
I've player through the demo four times at this point, and can control boxes to do whatever I desire. I've almost mastered using a box as cover lifting it up in-front...
