I would love this, but I hope this doesn't delay the full game if it is true.

They gave it a 9.7

Here's my take of all of this, They did accomidate for a demo and that they are still on target for a March release. I just hope they release on soon.

The 'preview' said that 'Demo is rumored to be from mid-February to early March' ... not very convincing - but we can hope.

What I liked was "opponent Jedi will deflect your incoming fire with his/her lightsaber and pull your gun away. They donít want to get hit!" and "you of course will have to use your Force powers, Agility and Lightsaber on the Dark Jedi you will encounter, as they will just kick your butt if you go in with guns a-blasting". Cool - make the saber and Force central to the game ...

Nice find Silent Wolf.

Mid-February to early March sound about right for a demo. Lets hope they're right.

There won't be a demo until weeks after the game is released. Any hope of something earlier is just lies. Lies lies lies!

Don't be tricked. Raven doesn't put out demos before the game is on the shelves. You'll have the real deal, and won't even care about the demo when it is released.

u forget that Raven isn't publishing the game, lucasarts are and if they want a demo out in early march, then a demo will be out in early march.

I'm a little confused to how lucas arts works with demo's, like for SW : Starfighter the demo was only just released, but for SW: Galactic Battle Grounds there was a demo for it befor the game hit the shelves. (corresct me if i'm wrong).

Well we can only hope :D

or sign a patition and e-mail it to lucasarts :)

The Starfighter demo was just released because no one cared about the PC version. Not many arcade-style games do well on the PC. They tend to do much better on consoles, such as PS2 or XBox, which Starfighter has already been released on.

We will have a demo.

There are always exceptions. Elite Force's demo was released MONTHS before the game. And Force Commander's demo wasn't released until after the game hit the shelves.

"Don't be tricked. Raven doesn't put out demos before the game is on the shelves. You'll have the real deal, and won't even care about the demo when it is released. "

The Star Trek Elite Force Demo came out about a month before the retail release.

I just want March to come NOW!! :D

Rumoured by whom?
If there were rumours doing the rounds, don't you think we'd known about them by now?
Besides, newsflash, we're already past mid-February.

Who's "Futurelooks" anyway and why do they think they can get away with posting review scores in a preview, based on hearsay/company info alone ("The AI Iíve heard about is incredible")?

Well I dont know if I do want a demo. Although I want to pass the time when I get the final version JK2 I want it to be all new to me :). If a demo is released I dont think id be able to stop myself downloading it. At least it would give us something to talk about though :D

The beauty of a multiplayer demo is that it doesn't give away any of the singleplayer story or levels. But it does answer our questions about gameplay and of course "Will it run on my system?". So even the people who worry about the Singleplayer portion being spoiled by a demo, can still play the demo.

I agree that playing a sinlgeplayer demo takes away from the game once you get it (playing the same level over again in the full version that you've beaten a thousand times in the demo). But multiplayer doesn't take anything away. I played the hell out of the Medal of Honor multiplayer demo but I'm still not sick of either level. At worst people won't want to play the multiplayer demo level for awhile.

Since the game is only alittle over a month away from release, by the time we get a demo, there won't really be enough time for people to get sick of the demo level anyways.
