I'd really like to use the Strong style, as in my mind it should be like the Luke/Vader battle from ROTJ which is still my favorite saber battle from the films. Unfortunately the animation makes him look like he is playing baseball or something, so i think im gonna go for dual sabers....

I guess I liked Fast (blue) the best. Mainly because you felt like a madman spinning around and slicing and dicing.


In Multiplayer it seemed an effective counter to people who were addicted to Strong (red) stance.

In JA I look forward to trying Dual Lightsabers, mainly because I was so jealous of Boc in JK1... ; )

Single saber, mixing Red and Blue stances, depending on enemy.

My favourite is..

Flechette.. damn, ill try again..
Rocket Launcher.. argh..

Well maybe I will use sabers if they are going to be more powerful than they were in JK2. Im not really much into sabers after the horrible accident of "1.03" But when Im out of guns/ammo Im going to use my "basic" saber as you might call it.. nothing too fancy, but still deadly.

I'm going to go with duel sabers. It just looks cool to me. Plus i like how you can throw both sabers at the same time

I think...

i will play through a couple of times. Then choose which on I like best for MP.

BTW, Kurgen.....I LOVE HIGHLANDER!! IT IS "ONE" (there can be only one) OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIES! Good taste! BTW, I think that Sean Connery was perfect for that role (Ramirez).


THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!

I'd probably want to try out one of the new styles, since they're a big selling point of the game. I'd probably try out the staff first, then the dual. Most of the time though I'll use either a single (with varying stances) or a gun. Don't want to come off as a "fanboi".

Hm..each style looks to have its selling points. I guess I'll reserve judgement until I have the game ^_~

I agree with Redwing, you'll have to have first hand experience with all styles first, the only ones that will have a different feel from JK2 will be the single saber styles.

Single Blade Blue. Dual blades and a staff are always fun, but I've always been a one hilt, one blade man.

I'ma go with staff first.

That's not because of good ol' Maul, but because I love (well...) Exar Kun (first ever staff-user...remeber?).

So, a blue staff for me -.-

Next'd be the dual sabers, I guess...just because they're new.

Do you mean favorite, what I'll use first, or what I'll use?
Because for favorite, I'd say the dual sabers would look the best.
I've liked dual sabers since Boc.

What I'll use first?
The dual, again.

What I'll actually use when fragging?
No idea. I figure I'll play through single player three times, one with each style saber, and then I'll make my final choice.


On the bright side, it isn't dark...

Dual.
Sure, staff looks fancy and single may be more versatile (YES; versatility is a very good thing) but I've always fought dual weapons since... Well, BG2 if I had the possibility. Simply think it looks cooler.

Even tho most ppl are complaining about the staff is too strong i still think its really good and since i switched from dual to staff im happy with the results. You need to be crazy good to kill fast with the dual sabers, but staff is awsome. Can you switch saber styles in multiplayer?

Dual Sabers for me. I just like all of the moves.

I'll also switch to using single saber on occasion. I'm not as interested in the Saberstaff - it's never really appealed to me.

I'll probably use the staff saber.
I just so strong and I love the kick and if you want to use throw you just retract one blade...

I'll use the staff... blue or purple, but the single does have many benefits, and is a fun challenge against dualists. Dual Sabers just seem too uncontrolled for me, as awesome as they look.

Staff - single can't hold up to dual sabers offence, dual can't kick, and I never use throw anyway. Jump kick to stab is a killer move, availiable only in staff... the reasons go on...
