Now, is it me... or does this game look like crap? I keep wondering how Lucasarts could make Bounty Hunter in 2002 that has better graphics than a game that's going to come out in 2005. Quite amazing. LucasArts seems to like out-doing themselves in crappiness ^_^.

Note the LA: Stick to out-sourcing your games.

Being that the game is for consoles only (Xbox and PS2 I believe)... of course it won't be as pretty as a PC platform game... oh well... don't have, or really want, a console anyway. ;)

I agree with Venom, it looks great.

IMO In no way does Bounty Hunter look better.

It also looks like one of those hack n' slash "RPG's" like the LOTR games. and I hated the LOTR games.

I think it's an action game. I don't think its an RPG at all.
So it would be considered a "hack n' slash". I don't think LucasArts is going to try and pretend like this is an RPG like EA tried to do with those LOTR games. That was pathetic.

I wouldn't be surprised if they did.

well at looking at the screenshots i've seen for the game i would say hannibal is correct i suspect they want this to be a 'star wars experience' so it'll probably be hack n slash, use force powers, hack n slash some more, use force powers to solve puzzle & then hack n slash every last enemy you can find

Every once in a while a game with a little, or a LOT, of "Hack-N-Slash" is a good and noble thing! ;)

Spamming Force Lightning or other such attacks against hordes of opponents does have its place in the gaming world IMHO. :D

It might be like the phantom mence game.
I never could beat Darth Maul The F*@K*"R

You mean Jedi Powers Battles? Awesome game. Graphics suxxored, but tight gameplay and combos. ONLY for PSX and DREAMCAST, of course.
The EP3 game looks almost identical, only with better graphics of course. They oughtta make it for all the major platforms, since this is sort of the "grand finale" for Star Wars movie-based games.
Oh well. Maybe my parents'll let us get a PS2 someday.

The game looks good from the trailer, and lucky me I don't have to participate in the PC vs console debate. I have both. :D

I think the Ep III game looks pretty sweet; I'll be getting it, since I have the Xbox and PC. Speaking of the Xbox, I haven't got my greedy mitts on TSL yet, due to the fact that my amour says he's getting me it for Christmas, and he won't give it to me early, dammit!

Sad thing is, due to mods, I'll probably buy the PC version in Feb anyway.

Hmmm...now this presents another dilemma...

Which one to do first? Watch the movie(May 19), or play the game(May 5)?
Or maybe read the book(April 2) first?

Hmm...:confused:

Best Episode 3 experience in 10 easy steps:

1. Watch the teaser
2. Don't watch any trailers
3. Buy the book, DON'T read it, not even the back cover.
4. Buy the game, DON'T play it
5. Buy the soundtrack, DON'T listen to it
6. Buy the comics, DON'T read them
7. Go to the thatre on May 19, watch episode 3
8. Go home and start reading the book and the comics, listen to the music and play the game
9. Go to the theatre on May 20 and see Episode 3
10. Go to the theatre on June 19 and see Episode 3

:D :D :D :D :D

Because this is the Ep 3 game thread...

Anyone who has played The Collective's (the developer of the Ep 3 game) other third-person action game Indiana Jones and the Emperors Tomb knows how PAINFULLY bad it is. Littered with jumping puzzles and impossibility to save, with huge levels and jumping puzzles that force you to replay the entire level if you missed the jump by an inch and of course worthless controls... oh and did I mention jumping puzzles every 2 minutes that force you to replay the entire level if you miss by an inch, worthless controls and impossibility to save?

Oh yeah, the Ep 3 game seems to be real fun...

i personally would do it in this order buy the book (maybe) but dont read it

watch the movie

then start reading the book

rent the game to see if it is any good

if i like the game i then buy it

then wait for episode 3 to come out on dvd take a day off work and watch all 6 films back to back, 12 hrs of star wars, pure bliss
