I've got webspace...

But then again, I don't want you flooding me with countless pics to upload, lol.

Just sign up for a website on http://www.t35.com

they give you unlimited webspace, and it's not hard at all to use.

Post here if you'd like to shout from the rooftops that you've finally got the game in your hot little hands.

If you want to leave a quick message about your initial impressions of the game now that you've got it, this is also the place to do that. Don't forget to highlight single player spoilers. :)

Those who don't have the game are welcome to cheer their comrads on here as well. ;)

All seperate threads made to do the things mentioned above will be merged here.

So rock on, Kyle.

Got it, and finally got the lightsaber...walking around with the imp blaster was getting very old... the disruptor rifle can't be deflected by them though, which kind of sucks. At least i don't think it can be deflected, but when it kills you, at least it looks cool.

HAHA! I'M GONNA OWN YOU ALL! MUWHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH!

I haven't touched the SP yet, I'm practising MP duels against the hardest bots, the AI is actually really good, a different strategy has to be used against them all! Once I get perfect at the duels, I'm gonna practise FFA on the hardest skill level, and then I'll finally start MP!...oh yeah, and SP...SP's for easter weekend!

I'm trying to be an objective guy and restrain my enthusiasm in the event that the game doesn't "ownz 'em all", and give the game an honest, professional, non-biased review.

I'm trying to be calm and patient for the day when I can finally get and install the game.

I'm trying to keep my composure. ::starts to breathe hard::

I'm trying to not flip out of my skull and go berzerk. ::heart beats ever faster::
I'm trying...I'm trying... ::caughs and wheezes:: I'm trying... ::hyperventalates::

How do you have 40 dollars but not 50, its only 10 bucks difference. Go pawn some stuff or something. Or you could look around the house for some change, usually you can find a few bucks that way. Or you could just get a job like everyone else.

Heh, ChangKhan. I picked up Freedom Force this morning. It's incredible. Hopefully I can knock it out before Thursday when getting JK2. Will certainly go back to it later on though. Irrational know their stuff.

Hello Greb Jnnayr, welcome to the forums :) :D :) Get Stormhammer here. Jez, I won't get it for probly until Monday, and hey, what is the difference from the Quake III and the Quake III Arena game engine, becase I found out that RTCW is Q III engine powered, and I can play RTCW on high with 600x800 ( you get the general idea of the reselution.)( however you spell it)
and it runs fine, if Q III is simalar to Q III Arena, I will be happy. :)

its sposed to have a better engine

Got it today as well (1pm to be exact)

Just exploring about a bit on the first level just now. I have to say it is looking great. I am running it on 350Mhz, 64Mb ram and a 32Mb TNT2 card, and I have no problem playing it (bit jerky on multiplayer, but that wasn't why I bought the game).

One thing thought, I wish Jan would stop saying "what a mess" everytime some stormtroopers were wiped out.

Well done Raven,

Ghedley, that's friggin awesome that you can play on it system like yours - great news for people with low-end boxes - no offense!

Someone posted that there's NO mail delivery at all on Friday cuz it's a holiday! I'm pretty sure they have to be right. I did the free 2-day air from EB so it looks like I won't get it til Saturday.

I'm hurrying trying to finish MotS - a hard drive crash killed all my savegames when I was about 2/3 thru it. So I don't want to start JK2 til I've finished it or I'll never finish MotS. But still, I'm going to have practice with the bots to get my skills up!

As has already been said, yes. But to the extent that there is a mods section in the ingame multiplayer menu, allowing for easy launching of mods, etc.

Yep, I got it this morning too, around 10 a.m. - just as I was leaving to go to work... :rolleyes: I'm in the UK, BTW, and pre-ordered from Gameplay.com, using standard 1st class post. I commend them on excellent service. :) I reckon all you other UKers should be getting the game soon. ;)

I managed to play it during my lunch-break, though, and it's very good so far...the first SP level is very reminiscent of the Imperial installations in the original Dark Forces, and the death animations are sweet. Turning on proper shadows makes it a bit more atmospheric, too.

Happy gaming, people. :)

03-27-2002, 05:28 PM
Ok, for all you out there that are lucky enough to have the game in their hands, please give us your location so we can know if we have any chance of getting it today. I have seen many people say they have got it at EB today, well my EB here in San Jose, CA says today's the ship date and they won't get it until tomorrow. It's only 11:30 am here, so is there any chance they are wrong? So anyway, give us your location if you have it, and especially if you're anywhere in California :D
Thanks!

It looks 'campy' because it was designed to be that way, set in the Silver Age of Comics (50-60's?). If you are like me and have collected comics at some point in your life, you would probably be interested in getting this game. I really don' t know alot about the game itself. I think it is a pretty fresh idea and has huge potential. If I wasn't getting JKO, I'd buy FF.

About JKO, my status is approx. 19.25 hours to go until purchase.

Have you guys read the accounts of some of those sabre duels? *drools*

I've called all the eb and babbages stores around me. Only 1 of them have it, but they want 50 bucks for it (This store over charges on everything). I can always get this store to price match other stores that have the game in stock, too bad I can't find any other stores with it. I guess I'll just wait for tomorrow when all the other stores gets em.

03-27-2002, 06:21 PM
As far as I know, $50 is the going rate through Gamestop.com and ebgames.com. What is the in-store price at EB? Anyone know?

Forgot to add that I've called all the local EB's here in Sacramento and they're all selling the game tommorow.

StormHammer - can't believe you got yours from gameplay already! I ordered from them too (and embarassingly enough, ordered courier delivery!) - website says it was sent out yesterday and still no sign. So question is, do I wait until it gets delivered or rush out at 9am to my local Game store and buy it there and then and return the copy from Gameplay?

Oh the dilemmas! Oh the agony!

Oh the desperately lacking in a life! It's no wonder my fiancee doesn't understand!

StormHammer
03-27-2002, 07:11 PM
BlackDragon...if you still have not received it, I recommend contacting them ASAP to find out what's happened. I pre-ordered in January (and I'm glad I did...because they only charged me the price at that time - 26.99, instead of 27.99). It seems a bit odd to me that you haven't received it if you chose courier service... :eyeraise:

I live in Alberta, Canada...Medicine Hat to be precise :P (booooring town) and our local EB is selling them tomorrow right when they open (9:30). I went there today to pre-order the special edition (or rather, put ALL the money down on it) and they had them RIGHT THERE! But they said something about they weren't allowed to sell it today because they would be fined otherwise :( (personally i think that's ****, but oh well). So I'm gonna git my azz outta bed to be there for 9:30! *drool*

PS. The salesperson took it out of the box to show me but wouldn't even let me fondle it...dammit.

Woooohooo! The Babbages store at Metrocenter, in Phoenix, Arizona will have JK2 on Thursday (tomorrow.) I just got done playing Obiwan on the Xbox, so I am ready for even more first person, lightsaber fun!

BTW, I disagree with most of the crappy reviews for Obiwan. I enjoyed the game. It got a little tedious at the end, but overall, I would recommend it to any SW fan.

03-27-2002, 09:03 PM
well, im a very happy person. i got my copy yesterday (27th) and im all happy now, though activision was being a little slack so they only got it into the stores at about 4 pm. So both myself and my brother were near either a eb store or harvey norman, but neither of us could get it for the above reason. so there we were worrying about by the time morning comes all the copies would be gone, but then we got to harvey norman in the morning, and there it was. the game in a shiny tin box :) "i thought YAY"

SPOILER warning


In the first few levels you get to play alongside Jan Ors in the Kejim region :) and theres a Death star multiplayer map :) "i think YAY" once more

I preordered mine from EB UK and it's in the post now and should be with me tomorrow morning. I paid 29.99 for it and should get "Battle of Naboo" free with it so I'm not worried about paying a few more quid than others.

Just out of curiosity (sp) how much is it costing people in other countries in relation to the UK. I've seen people posting prices of $50 up to $99.99 and I'm assuming that $50 is US and $99.99 is Aussie.

Now I know $50 US is about 35
and $100 Aus is about 35

So where is the cheapest place to buy games in the world?

I have gotten the lightsaber, you get it at the Jedi School which is level three.

I just beat the Nar Shaddaa level and am at that Cloud City place now.

So, to sum up, if you are in Canada it should be out today.

I got mine at 2:00pm EST time at EB.

I have to say, this is quite better then I could have hoped, congrats Raven, you definitely deserve all the praise we can muster, JK 2 is a winner. :D

Hey guyz...I just got back from my local "Compucentre" and thats right...in my hand suckers!

Hehe...anyways, the real reason for my post is to tell everyone to get the collectors edition tin...its unbelivable. This is how it worked...

So i get home and start to open the box when somethin blue starts glowing...low and behold its the keychain i thought was gonna be a piece of crap, it glows blue...unbelievable, and also sitting right there are the 2 past games, as well as the FULL colour manual...

So basically i have taken 5 mins to come on here and tell all of you just how friggin amazed i am at the game..and i havent even played it yet. Well -- i am off...enjoy.

Oh yea -- and this is the first time us canucks beat you americans to a launch isnt it -- MUAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH!!!

May the force be with you...:saberb:

The game is great got past the first level no worries and then while i'm loading the second level the game gave me an error message and quit me back to windows, tried once more to load the 2nd level but to no avail.
So i decided to go online for a bit of mutiplayer light-saber action, the game game me about 6 blue screens of death in a row and just restarted my computer. DOH, hopefully they release a patch VERY SOON or i'm gonna be pissed, cos i can't just keep playing the 1st level over and over again :)

Picked the game up tonight (Wednesday, March 27th). Installed it, but have not played it too much. Watched the intro, and played a little of the first level. Also tried to go MP, but there were no servers....not surprising. Anyway, hopefully everyone else gets it soon too.
Bye.

Word of Advice , don't get to the end. And when you miss a fall , falling to your death - don't save it when you are falling. In stead of hitting 'reload'.

When was the last time you formatted your HDD? I know that over time your 'puter can accumulate a lot of "junk". That is, when you install, uninstall and then reinstall different programs often, run programs with questionable coding quality (i.e. anything published by Expert Software ;) ), have improperly installed hardware and drivers, as well as a number of system crashes, The Windows System Registry and maybe the File Allocation Table can be garbled. Perhaps you should do a clean format of the HDD and reinstall everything, periodicly. I'm no 'puter expert, though, oh well. :(

You all think you're unlucky?Wait 'till you see this!
1.A high drop from 2nd to 15th,due to unfair and inefficient counting.Now what?You take the call.
2.I MAY get JO on this Friday or even today,or worse still,later.But I won't be able to play it!Not until May,when I collect it!
3.So think about others before you say anything.Thank you,'nuff said.

Wooo! I woke up extra early today and went and bought the game.

I played single player for a bit and to be honest I was a lil disappointed. The usual flicking switches for no reason issue.

I then played a bit of bot filled MP. I was very dis-appointed with the saber system... UNTIL! I whacked the bot AI up to Jedi Master and had a lil play on dual mode and got to test out all the stances and stuff 1 v 1...

IT FRICKIN ROCKS!

I was having superb saber duels which looked like they were straight out of the film. Seriously, the only way to get damn intense duals is to have the bots on full difficulty. I havn't played online yet due to my crappy 56k.. I can definately see how difficult this is going to be to play online. The duals are sooo quick, you timing has to be damn perfect and you NEED to think about what you are going to do next and what your opponent is going to do next.

It is great...

I got mine yesturday after work. I actually pre-ordered it through ebgames.com, but when I found out that there were two copies left at my local EB store (Tyson's Corner, VA), I rushed out and got one! My plan is to use my EB store reciept to return the one I'm having delivered through ebgames.com. If it doesn't work (and it has in the past), it was totally worth spending an extra $50 just for those few hours I spent playing!

Got mine at 10:30 this morning in Florida, yeah got the collectors edition with the full version of Dark Forces and my LIGHTSABER...which btw is pretty cool.

Installed w/o a hitch and loads pretty fast...foruntately I read the topic on load times and adjust my settings.

Single player is quite cool, not too far in it at all but still nice.

Played multi for a bit.....yep I gotta learn the saber.

One annoying thing is that in MP games where all the weapons are avaliable, what is the point of even using another weapon besides the saber and force powers? It seems every game I tried EVERYONE had sabers and tossing force powers around like candy....rather annoying.......I though all the weapons were suppose to be balanced but it seems that someone with a saber and force powers simply owns the poor guy using a regular weapon.

OK its out in L.A., EB store at Pico.

Heres a mini review of what i like and i dont so far:

So far i love:

-the story so far
-fantastic voice-overs. Lukes voice is perfect even tho it wasnt Mark h. himself.
-lightsaber combat rules, nuff said. The saberlock is too cool and very cinematic
-the models are amazing. Animations are superb!
-good choice of music so far
-Yavin was really cool. I got chills watching the Jedis saber trainning. Very, very cool.
-the ingame cimematics are well done.
-its star wars ;)

now here what i dont like. Keep in mind that im not bashing anyhing but any game is hardly perfect and i want to voice my opinion, being a huge fan,ok? ;)

- The level design:

I mean. urg. Is this Raven?? What happend here? Yavin was cool. Some of the first mission outdoors scene were cool but for most of the time i feel like being in a 'box' room with crates. Theres zero detail. Why is that? I mean sure keep the poly count low but this is 2002. And yes im a total graphics whore. So bite me.
It just feels all blocky to me. YOu cant comare the games but RTCW had way more detail in some of the levels. Also some of the textures are so off. Just feel cheap. Raven can do better. Heretic 2's level design was fantastic. And that was q2 engine.

Example, the game FAKK2 is 2 years old. Pick it up from the bargin bin and check out the detail in the levels and textures.

- Atmosphere:

The game does feel like SW of course but there is a serious lack of lighting/mood in the game. I know that was never the strength of the q3 tech but looking at some of the UT2003 level shots, i really want more moody scenes.


- single player gameplay

Ok so i know i shouldve not expect too much. But besides bots (jen, lando, luke) helping you out now, where's the innovation here? Besides the saber combat theres nothing new. Still good tho.

-MP levels: urg. Again. I dont like any of the MP maps besides the bespin map. See my crying about the level design above.

Overall i say Raven did a good job but i can see the quick development cycle, theres no doubt about it.

Maybe a JKO2 with the Doom3 tech and 2 years in dev will bring something better.

Cant rate it yet since i havent finished it.
