View Full Version : TPM Sucks!

What a stupid game. The angle of play is weird, the graphics in some places are shoddy, and some of the weapons used are boring and leave no room for imaginative use (especially Amidala's Droid Stunner). Like a fool, I bought the PC and the PSX versions, and the both suck. The only good difference is the feedback on the PSX. I really cannot think of a worse game to buy.

You bought two copies of the same game, and they sucked?

Well I guess somebody got suckered...

Hey, you could have bought Jedi Power Battles (ugh)!

I'm afraid my walk has become rather sillier recently, and so it takes me rather longer to get to work.

Sorry, I may be misreading this Kurgan, but are you saying that JPB is a bad game? No way! Sure, it has more glitches than enemies, but the gameplay is very good, and the option to play as one of five characters (or eight, counting secret characters) is a nice addition.

<font face="BernardMod BT"><font color="green1">The way I read it, he was saying that TPM was much better; not that JPB was bad as such. If that interpretation is correct, I agree with him completely.

If I misinterpreted him and he in fact meant that Jaba the Hutt likes banana fruitcake on alternate Wednesdays, then I'm afraid I may disagree.

I don't agree as such. I think that JPB has a better replay value, as you can get secret characters and levels with the different Jedi.

Don't get me wrong, I loved TPM when I first played it (and I still do). It was good to find a game that had both fighting and puzzles.

<font face="BernardMod BT"><font color="green1">Fair enough. It also had good moves, and the graphics were good (for a PSX game). Bonus levels and characters were quite a plus (could use that on TPM). I also liked the fact that Qui-Gon lived http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/biggrin.gif

However, it was also totally mindless-- a throwback to Super Mario Brothers. Restarting levels when you die, and having to go over the same ground all over again (and again), was just tedious and irritating. This was compounded by the fact the game's programers obviously had some kind of weird fetish for Jedi bunny rabbits. You spend most of the game bouncing around ridiculously. For this reason, my lasting impression of the game is one of irritation. After I beat every level with every character, I stuffed the game in the closet and haven't looked at it since.

I have no doubts, however, that most Star Wars gamers would prefer JPB, so maybe it's just me.

You're both right. TPM and JPB are both great, but for their own different reasons. I really enjoy the detail and numerous moves on JPB even though I don't have the game. TPM is great too, as for Joe Joe, I think I'll make a post that will rather annoy him. http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/tongue.gif

Here's my honest opinion:

JPB was awful. If it hadn't been Star Wars it would have been just okay (like Zombie Revenge in a way..).

Sure it has "secrets" and other stuff, but the play mechanics are very poor, and not true to SW hardly at all. It just isn't fun for me. 2 player is mildly better, but still not much fun. Had the controls and options been better, and the bugs fixed, it could have been fun.

TPM was just okay. It had alot of dumb parts (like controlling Padme and the jump puzzles), but all in all, was worth playing.

Thus far the Episode I based games haven't been that impressive. I'm looking forward to Super Bombad Racing and Obi-Wan though, and Pod Racer was pretty good.

You are free to disagree with me, but this is what I think after playing the games and giving them a fair shake.

You bunch of freaks! All the Star Wars games suck, and you know it! They sucked before, they suck now and they will suck forever.

Kinda like Saesee Tom, if you know what I mean... http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/wink.gif

Yes. It makes Saesee Tom feel stupid, and gets him back for trying to get me kicked off the forum (the same to "Dave Maul" as well).

Err.. Joe Joe,

When you said that all Star Wars games stink.
Where you kidding?

And if not, why are you here?

Well i certainly don't think that he is the nicest guy on this forum.

Yes, I did mean it. I cannot find one good SW game.

Masters Of Teras Kasi: Snore.
Dark Forces: Okay gameplay, but crappy graphics.
TPM: Need I go on?
Jedi Power Battles: Glitch Haven.
Racer: Sooo boring.
Shadows Of The Empire: Too easy.
Rebel Assault: You can't explore anywhere.

If you guys don't like me, then fine.

well then why don't u get Jedi Knight! that is the best SW game ever!!!

Kurgan
06-22-2000, 04:43 PM
Good point, there are alot of SW games out there, surely there is one you like..or could like. ; )

JK, MOTS, SW Trilogy Arcade, Rebel Assault II (love the ground battles)...

Hey, I freely admit, I don't like alot of the SW games that have come out. And some of them are well put together, I just don't enjoy them very much.

Jedi Knight sucks balls (the game,not the site). The cutscenes are the best thing, and they are crap.

It's just a tired storyline expanded with (so-called) better graphics.

<font face="BernardMod BT"><font color="green1">Well Joe Joe, why don't you describe the way you would want a Star Wars game to be. Though you've been very clear that you don't like things, offering such penetrating comments as "Jedi Knight sucks balls," you haven't said much on what you do like.

Obi-Wan looks like a good game. From the screenshots, it looks like it has good graphics. And from the press release, it sounds like a much better game than Jedi Knight (ugh, just saying it makes me throw up over my keyboard).

However, we all must remember that it's a LucasArts game, and they'll probably find some way to f*** it up.

Joe Joe, have you seen (or liked) the Star Wars movies? LucasArts make brilliant games that meet pretty much everyone's standards, you probably have a slow computer.
Oh, and why do you frequently try to make fun of me? All you're doing is making people feel sorry for me and other users hate you.
