Who's the best Villian in this game?

I just recently rented the game, and I LOVE it already! I always play Assault on mos Eisley, and I like the Villians, but I can't decide who's best. What do you think?

(My vote is for greivous)

I say Maul, his attacks are quick, and devestating with that double blade of his, plus he just looks cool. It's kind of annoying how often he's used.


Not being paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't trying to kill you... or does it?

k, I admit it. I only picked Grerivous cause he has 4 lightsabers.

Grievous. He is a very powerful character if you use him well to his full capacity. Even without Force powers (Jump, etc), he is still a villian or character that can devastate enemies whether in a group or by self.

The best villian is a dead villian.

My vote will have to go to Maul, you can't beat the double lightsaber.
But in a close second is anyone with force choke, really good for assault maps. you victim can't move as you slowly walk in for the kill.

Grevious. If you're not paying attention he can run in and with a few quick slashes.....you're dead.

Maul of Darth. Besides his saber skillz, he's blazing fast, and when that is combined with a sudden Force Push that makes for an easy target, that makes for one unhappy camper on the recieving end.

Gizor Delso, even though you can't play him. He can fly and has a Bulldog. That's an effective combo.

Maul is the best.
But I prefer Emporer, Because he's the only character that can do Force Collapse.

Force collapse? Are you talking about his move where he jumps then shoots lightning everywhere?

i would say darth maul is the best villian because he is very quick with his light sabre and he can move around fast.

Darth Vader. Even though he walks, his saber skills are unmatched, he can fly, and his force powers rock.

Dooku's only ability is dieing. I hate using him.

I say Darth Vader. He owns everyone with his lightsaber and can fly. Oh, and the force choke- can't forget that!

Darth Vader IMO is the worst. He basicly sucks. Slow, Can't Walk Fast Enough, and I'm not a big fan of the Emporer-Style movement.

Well, the force collaspe trick is powerful, though a better name is needed, that name you use sounds too super-shadowish.

No, the gap between his swipes is too long, i've had Rebel soldiers just run away. I'd have to say the best is Darth Maul or Obi-Wan

The best of all is Yoda, definitely. But he's not a villan, so he doesn't count.

Yeah, Vader is slow walking, but his evil force floatating sprint of doom is impressive, sadly you often move much too fast to control where you go with much accuracy, you can completely bypass your opponent by accident and leave yourself open to attack. I find Mauls sprint to be a bit more controlled.

Plus Vader's attacks, while slower, deal greater damage. He can take guys down in a few swipes while Maul has to attack alot more. Here I'm talking about hero assault of course, as infantry typically die in 1-2 swipes.

Vader also has more health then Maul, but as speed typically trumps everything else this hardly matters, Maul doesn't have to worry about being attacked if he gets the jump on the enemy and doesn't allow them to counter attack. But if someone else gets the first blow, Maul can be in trouble real quick as his health falls very fast.

I think that they are fairly even, but Maul has an undeniable edge, due to the fact that speed is typically the most deciding factor in a fight.

Okay, you guys are right. Darth Maul is the best. I tried him out last night, and was very impressed. His attacks are amazingly quick, just like you said. Forget Vader, Maul is the best villan.

I'd say maul IF you know how to use him and if u do your pretty much unbeatable unless double teamed. The best sratagey is to use his quick attacks. Force push and oppenent so they fall to the ground quickly sprint over and slash away. Pretty much unbeatable unless the do the same or a force pull which is also very good. And i also heard that while force pulling, when their in air and you slash them its a one hit kill. Anyone want to verify that?


Give me one shot and I'll be the last thing you see

Maul needs a critical hit weak point at the waist against horizontal cuts.

But yeah, he is pretty darn cool.

Maul pwns all. His saber throw pwns all. But his lack of actual Force powers is his one main weakness.

1bad-5good

Vader:4.5
Maul:5.1
Anakin:4.6
Count Dooku:3.1
Emperor:4
Greivous:3.2 (you can't stop him from doing his running attack)
Jango:4.4

Well I will have to say General Grievous, he was awesome, I creamed 6 hero's at a time and I still had almost full health left. Not to brag but I was almost unbeatable. Maul is good also but Grievous is just a bit better in some ways.

So my votes are with Grievous and Maul, they are the strongest villians out of them all and Sideous just plain sucks. When I was fighting Sidious when I was luke. Sidious had his face in the wall and was firing lightning at the wall and I just creamed him, he just plain sucks. Count Dooku also isn't very good at all.

And I know that this shouldn't be in this catagorie but my best hero would be Luke.
