Played it a bit.....I dunno...

Well, I spent a few mins playing the game before work today. I also beat the demo a few times last month or whenever that came out.

From what I've seen so far, it seems Ok. It is pretty darned easy on medium, so I put it on hard. It's definitely NOT a tactical shooter at all like Rogue Spear games. Your squadmates, as you all know if you played the demo, do most everything on their own. And all you get are a few 'click here and do this' moments. The difficulty just isn't right either....you just squash your mindless enemies and run onwards and kill more...It's very player-is-uber-mean and enemies-are-pathetic. After all, the 8 yr olds need to have a chance... You can stand right in front of a droid infantry fellow and he won't kill you overly quickly.

The game feels very consolish so far... although, that's just from what I've seen of level 1. (Semi-Spoiler Alarm!!!!) Level 1, however, takes place right outside in that giant canyon from Ep2 , during the huge infantry battle. It's very closed in, more so than UT2004 for example. (End Spoiler Alarm!!!)I'm very concerned that they had problems with Xbox's limited RAM and we will suffer on the PC as a result. Still, the Unreal Engine has never looked better. The game has a very refined look overall other than the enclosed spaces.

Basically, my feeling of it is that it's a lot like Elite Force, but you can control your squad. I don't know yet whether that's a good thing. The Elite Force games weren't exactly mind-blowing games....

Oh, and another thread reminded me that I really like the soundtrack. It's a mix of original stuff and some stuff from the prequel films (probably the best part of those films, lol).
