which will you use? my vote goes to sabers only but im just that kinda guy han.

02-27-2002, 03:48 PM
mine goes to a lot of both my young apprentice

I am hoping that I can successfully use sabers only ... of course that's kind of stupid to say since you don't get the saber until the 5th level or something. Also, I am looking forward to a few well placed scope shots ...

I've never been one for TD's or things like that ... not really for blasters either - just that in JK1 there were places you'd just die, die, die with a saber only .


02-27-2002, 03:52 PM
I prefer the saber too :saberr:

02-27-2002, 03:54 PM
My teeth.

Saber all the way. I'll probably play it through once the way they intended it but after that I'll just use a good 'ol "give all" cheat and hack away from the first level. Of course, that's probably unrealistic to say you'll only use the saber because there may be times when you need a gun but my goal is to only use the saber. I can't wait for multiplayer Jedi duels either. (As soon as it comes out 2 friends and I are going to LAN and do some old fashioned 1 on 1 Jedi Duels. You're going down Rob!!!!)

Definately both. Couldn't live without either.

02-27-2002, 04:16 PM
sabers only!!!

I'll have to do some guns till i get my saber but after that! my goal is sabers only!

And like said before, after i finish the game i'll redo the first few levels with a saber, cheat :)

maybe some force powers too :)

02-27-2002, 04:17 PM
Yeah I'm gonna have to say saber only as much as possible. I understand how you might need to use guns from time to time, but overall i want the saber. If I'm going to be a Jedi, I'm going to go all out.

02-27-2002, 04:19 PM
Singleplayer: Saber
Multiplayer: A bit of both. Or a lot.

02-27-2002, 04:20 PM
I don't know how I'll play (kinda). I'll probably play like I did on JK (saber only when I needed it), but that was only because the saber fighting in the original JK was crappy.:( Anyway, since the saber play is gonna be a lot better in JK2, I have no idea how I'll play...:confused:

02-27-2002, 04:41 PM
Both, but more heavily on the saber side.

02-27-2002, 05:19 PM
I'll go with the saber unless I have to pull out a gun to knock off an annoying Stormtrooper.

02-27-2002, 05:31 PM
Ill go saber only when I can, but I think its ok for a Jedi to pull a light blaster or storm trooper rifle every once and a while as long as it isnt a rail detonator or some other rediculous weapon.

02-27-2002, 05:41 PM
My 'philosophy' on the issue has always been the following.

Why limit yourself to one weapon of the game when you can use a variety?

If you think the saber is superior to all other weapons, that's fine; feel free to come at me with it but don't complain if I thump you with a few concussion blasts. :)

Seriously, I'll play both. I really hope the saber gameplay is drastically improved though.

Sabers all the way! After playing Heretic II and watching all the Star Wars movies like 50 million times, I'm definately going for lightsabers

Both. With more sabering this time around.

For JK it was always FF spork with heavy gunning and occasional sabering.

02-27-2002, 06:08 PM
Think of it like this:

The guys who are using guns are the stormtroopers in singleplayer. The saber users are the heroes. Hero smiteth stormtrooper.

Get it? :D

Saber for me... duh.. :)

02-27-2002, 07:29 PM
or the heroe is the one that manages to kill a thousand blaster wielding troopers using only a bryar pistol
that is more difficult than using the saber and the force :D

02-27-2002, 08:19 PM
I'm gonna use both, heck they give us all these cool weapons to use so I'm going to do just that... Can't stick to just one formula, it gets too boring! Gotta mix it up with everything I have.

I am a Jedi, like my father before me.. :D

02-27-2002, 08:49 PM
yah, oh hey, wait a minutes, YOUR FATHER WASNT A JEDI!!!
He's a cafeteria worker at my old highschool!!! Whats for lunch tomorrow anyway.

02-27-2002, 08:58 PM
I'll be using both. Probably whichever most people are using in that certain game.

02-27-2002, 09:46 PM
Krayt Tion--

Dispatch rocks!

I'm dying to use the LS, but heck, even the bryar Blaster looks amazing in the trailer

02-27-2002, 09:52 PM
Mixed in with the force as well.
Guns I will never use

Use the saber to hunt down some Jedi and become a "Sith Lord"

I know you cant choose the path between the LS and DS. But you can still act like an evil Jedi thats considered "Dark Jedi" or a "Sith Lord"

02-27-2002, 10:39 PM
Whatever it takes to win.

02-27-2002, 10:41 PM
Both depending on the situation. :slsaber:

02-27-2002, 11:40 PM
you all shall taste my steel!! or, well, light energy as it may be, but sabre's all the way baby!!

I would first play JK2 with abit of both, since you don't really know what kind of situation you will be presented with.

Maybe the next turn around I would charge in with only Sabers and force, showing my true power! MWUAHAHAHAH.... :p

I don't know about Guns Only though... seems kind of pointless...

Cheers ;)

Well I'll probably end up switching weapons depending on the situation.. but a play with just the lightsaber is definatly in order. (and besides.. if one gets a new gun it's hard not to just test it.... on a wall ^.^ )

hmms looks like theres gonna be some hearty competition in the sabers only racket :D ...good good...i look forward to dueling you all :) . I think the defining momment in this game for me, will be when i track down my first annoying sniper and ram my saber where the sun dont shine ;) . On the real, the duels will be my favorite thing about this game...can anyone say team deatmatch duels light vs dark baby BRING IT ON!!! :)

Im going to go take my pills now..rant away -_-

02-28-2002, 02:29 PM
SABERZ.....all the way most of the time....

Single Player : a LOT of both
Multiplayer : Saberz....lots of saberz (green saberz!:saberg:)
ne1 gonna do a double bladed saber 4 JO like the 1s for JK?:dsaber:
I REALLY hope so.....


02-28-2002, 02:42 PM
I voted for a bit of both...

My plan in to play thought single player using everything whenever I want, then to play through single player agian using only the light saber (for close combat) the Bryar pistol (for it's long ranged, chargeable shots, and because I detest the disrupter :)) and Thermal dets for those times when enemies are behind bunkers, or down shafts.

In Multiplayer I will probably try to use sabers only.

02-28-2002, 03:49 PM
saber for me you get a lot more out of it
