a newbie i am

so after reading the IGN preview last night...they say that combat is 100% dice-roll-stats driven

i thought there was real-time combat

which is it??

and if it is stats based/dice roll only how will that work??

To the best of my knowledge the game has a similar approach to combat as baulders gate or NWN. It IS real time combat meaning you to attack the enemy, however performing a move is selected in a paused menu screen so that the battles play out very fluidic and naturally. Each move you do has certain amounts of damage and other properties(thaco) so e.g. jedi attacks dmg=42-2
and defenders armor=3 the jedi will do damage. This is what i think it will be like in the game. I hope this has explained it a little...:)

You might want to try the Neverwinter Nights demo (nwn.bioware.com/downloads/demo.html) which gives you a taste of what the combat will be like.

The game has a turn-based, dice rolling engine that makes the combat run. The combat actually plays out in real-time, but has turn-based mechanics.

Hopefully you can understand that jumble. :D
