What force powers are you looking forward to?

Which of the announced and unannounced force powers are you looking forward to seeing in the game? It seems the game is focusing heavily on the force, so I would guess it is an important part of the gameplay.

I want to see some of my favorite powers from KOTOR, like Force wave and storm. (In one of the clips it looked like wave is in the game.) The lightening still looks kind of weak as compared to the other games in my opinion.

How does the lightning look weak? Especially combined with other powers, like the described power combo where you can lift enemies off the ground, blast them with lightning, and smash them through the ground. Not to mention how much more realistic the lightning looks in this game compared to others, like Jedi Knight.

I mean the amount of lightning isn't a lot compared to the other games, which usually have literal storms coming from the player's hands. I would like to see it look a bit thicker.

I wouldn't say the lightning looks weak. The game focuses around four main powers - Force push, grip, repulse and lightning. I think they all looked pretty badass in the previs.

Not in JA, it looked way better in JO, for sure...

The lightning kinda reminds me of what it looked like when I was using it with Kyle in JO to whoop some booty, so I like

I hope the Apprentice can learn light side powers, since I find they help out in certain situations. I would like Heal and Lightning to be in the game.

I'd love force grip - like in the teaser trailer where you can manipulate the surroundings to throw objects at your opponents or your opponents into the objects (such as a TIE)

Sorry, there won't be any powers aside from these four.

I would like the uses of Grip. Repulsion is cool, but not as grip since you don't have the same control on it.

With how advanced the physics now is, definitely Force-push. Should be fun to smash walls and send objects flying around rooms... (if they release the darn thing for PC, that is :P)

Well, creative Use of Push/Pull would be fun. Other than that would be a nice sequence of Force Speed(bullet Time) and force acrobatics. I mean slowing time, running up a wall then drop down, force pushing on those stormies, crushing their bodies INTO the ground, then, drop down, force pull them towards you in a circle, spins your saber around for a crp de grace.

In the trailer it was cool how you can use force grip on multiple enemies at once.

I hope that grip is implemented like it appeared in the pre-vis. ie you don't lift an individual object, you lift an area. Like when he picked up the stormtroopers and both of them, a gun, and some debris all lifted up. Or when he lifted a cluster of debris to destroy the TIE fighter, not just a single rock.

That's what I want grip to be like in the actual game.


I'm glad that the game focuses on telekineses and lightning, that's a lot cooler than cluttering it with things like heal and protect and mind trick. The powers we know about, aside from lightning, are all just telekineses, but I just realized that pull doesn't seem to be included.

About lightning, I much prefer how it's looking in TFU to JA. In JA, the two handed ridiculous onslaught of tiny bolts in a cone didn't look great, not how I think it should in SW. What I think it is supposed to be more like, and what the TFU appears to be doing, is have the lightning target something, and actually go specifically to that target(s) and electrocute them, instead of just firing off lightning into the distance and hoping it hits, like a gun.


God is a placebo with nasty side effects.

Mind Trick would be hard to done right in a more action-based game.

All the fun and creative things I have seen so fare are all done in tabletop rpg.

So it would be more fun focusing in the more physical aspact of the force. Like telekinesis skills, body enhancement (bullettime) and invisibility.

I doubt well see the light side powers, afterall your an apprentice of Vader. About the force powers:

Force push and Force pull are basically the same thing are they not? One is simply the opposite direction of the other. Also, isnt Wave just a more powerful and destructive form of force push/pull?

Lightning, I have to agree with JawaJoey. In the movies the lightning is focused on people and even Sidious didnt have huge storms. What I think would be cool is if you could do what Mace/Obi-wan, and Yoda did, absorbing the lightning with hands or lightsaber.

What I think could also be prtty nice, though perhaps not much of a force power but instead a move, is the ability to jump at someone and stab them, similar to what Yoda did in Episode III. It's also similar to KOTOR how you jump forward quickly instead of at an upward angle slowly. But its the stabbing motion whie you jump on the person that gets me :P

Well, the only "Lightside" force power I can see that may exist in the game would be "force heal" on self, for gameplay purpose. Well obviously Drain Life would be 70979089 times better.

Looking most forward to Force Push! Nothing beats people flying everywhere and crates crashing into them.

There are Darkside Techniques I would Love to Be Allowed To Use, but probably will not be included in the game for obvious reasons, like the Blackfire thingy (electromagnetic torpedo by that darksider in Lando's Triology) or even the dread spear of midnight black.

Zapping people with Force Lightning is pretty sweet but I really don't have too much of a preference. Im glad they have the ones we are going to see and I REALLY like the idea that you can combine the powers to do all sorts of stuff. I am however holding out hope that, while you can use Force Grip, in the game that it also allows you to chokehold your enemies ala Darth Vader. I mean that's evil!

Force crush. Instead of just lifting them up, actually crush their bones into their organs.

The lightning looks great, how it actually shapes over the objects it's destroying.

Is Force repulsion that thing where he jumps into the air and then spreads out his body sending a giant shockwave?

Nah, it was in KotOR 2. It's not like it shows their guts exploding everywhere, it justs constricts their entire body with great force. Basically Force grip except more powerful and with the whole body.

You just need to show the body of your target wiggling unnaturally defying healthy joint movements, then maybe a bit of bloow from the mouth, then drop dead on the floor like a puppet/ragdoll.

BTW, Force Crush is basically WinRAR with the force, without the ability to unrar. It kinda compresses your target. Not sue how far you can compress it, but pressing a humanoid into the size of a slightly bigger basketball would look spiffy. You may even be able to slam dunk it into your next taget for extra Cool Points.

Actually, I'm pretty sure they mucked up the lightning in every single game. I can't remember a single occasion where the lightning didn't look phony, or didn't behave/move wrong, or didn't make it obvious that the creators had never looked at the lightning in the movies to compare so they get it right. All they did was look at the power's name and think "Ok! It shoots lightning!" and make some wacked out effect, like the nonsense from JK2 and JKA where the lightning just instantly appears at its destination rather than traveling there, or absoloute failure in the sounds department in Empire at War, where they just used standard electricity sounds.

Force Lightning and Force Storm are basically the same thing. I think the powers the game focuses on are lightning, push/pull, repulse, and grip.
