I downloaded the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed demo from the PlayStation Network the other day and I have to say that the single short level it has was one of the best Star Wars games I’ve ever played. It reminded me a bit of Knights of The Old Republic as far as having the behind the character view, but the gameplay and specifically the Force powers were awesome.
Right from the beginning I felt like a very powerful Force user and I was able to cause incredible amounts of damage. Tossing Stormtroopers around like ragdolls or lifting (and hurling) incredible large items with the power of the Force is great fun. Past games seem to limit your powers and let you grow over time. This one starts you out very strong and I imagine you’ll just get stronger. The full game should be quite incredible and I look forward to getting it. The graphics were top notch as expected and all the fighting motions work very, very well.
I’d say just from playing the demo that this is one Star Wars game you’ll certainly want to own.
