In JK each dark jedi had a different saber stance and moves- all the dark jedi in JK 2 seem to hold the saber in the same way as Kyle.
Also will their be such things as a flying darkjedi a darkjedi with 2 sabers and a dark jedi with a 10 ft saber lke we saw in JK?

Then you weren't looking very hard. Yun used a simple 1 handed swing-sariss used a reverse held grip. Jerec used a powerful 1 handed diagonal swing.

You're right, lonepadawan. That feature would be tight. But since there are so much more moves in the game now, it might be too much of an effort and something meaningless to do, since there are 3x8 lightsaber moves for Kyle already. We don't know if we're gonna see this, though, since I think all the other pics where people besides Kyle are using a lightsaber are taken from multiplayer.

Yeah they did have different stances.

It's pretty obvious. Maw did his little spin attack, Sariss did the back hand reverse grip thingy, Gorc just slashed down like an axe, Pic...er...I don't remember what Pic did. :p

well there are so many moves and blocks that I doubt that you will notice. Dark Jedi will probably have the same moves, but you wont notice :D.....the stances seem to be all the same though with their hands by their side. Just look at the bottle staring competition screenshot :)

This just in.
The Lucasarts game jedi knight has been cancelled and moved onto the X-box. But PC gamers should not worry as they have a new game to amuse them. Star Wars:Bottle Staring
You control a random drunk who must stare at various bottles without looking away. This game will feature state of the art electronic alchohol effects and brilliant 3d graphics.
"We hope to introduce the gamers to bottle staring in a brilliant first game" says the project leader Gim. E Drink "We have plans to scrap all other games and concentrate solely on bottle staring for a while until the series is finnished. we have plans for 23 sequels and 12 prequals."
Bottle staring will be coming to a PC near you soon.

Maybe saber wielding enemies use one of three stances according to their skill level. Brett Tosti mentioned "reborns" who have low level Force powers and give you decent resistance during missions. They aren't boss "quality" though, so maybe they might use a light fighting stance that will allow them to strike rapidly, but at the cost of reduced damage. Then there would be actual Dark Jedis(still no knowledge how many of them there will be) who might use the heavy stance which will do a great deal of damage, but left them wide open for a short period of time if their swing fails to find its target, and of course final boss would switch easily between these three stances during duel just like you in that stage.

I don't think dark and light will be different, but there will be three different stances and tons and tons of moves.

I'm wondering if there'll be double-bladed lightsabers?

it would be cool if there was double bladed lightsaber. But i doubt Raven would go to such lengths. But anyways if they don't, someone will in a mod.

FinnSon, you just gave me an adrenaline rush. Can you imagine what the final lightsaber fight is going to be like! I see a huge level, 3 lightsaber stances, 30 lightsaber moves, a ton of force powers, and 15 straight minutes of bliss. WOOHOO! It's going to be so awesome, I bet as soon as it's over, I'll make sure not to save so I can do it again. :D

Drooling at the thought moses....


Maybe it will do a slowmo spin pan like the matrix as the saber slashes through *end boss*'s head.....hmmmm
:p :p

Hehe. I don't know. They had a cutscene for when Kyle killed Jerec right? It could happen!

Yeah, and also you'll have to save before it, because otherwise you'll have to go back once you get beaten.

Welcome to the forums, Dark Malice, Locke101 and CorranHornjr. Heck my sig for your gifts. ;)

That's an interesting point lonepadawan. It would be nice to see Dark Jedi opponents with different stances and moves...but I seem to be getting the impression there are going to be quite a few dark jedi to battle this time around. Maybe there will be one or two with some special attacks...but I'm more inclined to go with FinnSon's idea.

I suspect it won't be long before we can find out for ourselves. :)
