Yeah I doubt it will be released at midnight but I will be checking throughout the day to see if it has been released.

If you mean midnight on Thursday, then no, I won't stay up for it because I've got work on Friday. I'll just check when I get home.

Nope! At the stroke of midnight, Pacific Time, turn on your 360 and The Force Unleashed demo should be ready and waiting for you.*










*=not really. You have to download it from xbox Live.

I get off work at 3AM central. Hopefully the demo is up for both PS3 and 360 cause I will be downloading both for comparisons(if any).

I can post my impressions. You should look at getting at 360. They are down to $199 now and pretty affordable if you just save up. The cheap model doesn't have an HD but you can find a smaller one used for pretty cheap.

Well there ya go. Maybe work out a deal where you pay half and the parents pay half. You won't regret getting a 360. It is a fantastic system.

Is anyone in the pacific time zone staying up to see if they put it up at midnight? If someone could post when it goes up that would be awesome.

20 minutes and we will know for sure. It will probably be later. I know Rock Band releases their DLC for 360 around 3AM Central time the day it is released. Maybe 1 AM PST then?

My word, your impatient, making that comment after only seven minutes of the day. Generally, at midnight, a lot of people want to sleep, not upload demos for other people.

I'll download it later, I'm not too bothered about playing a Demo, as i'm going to be buying the full game anyway.

I just finished playing around on the demo. It's quite short though. But, unleashing the force is so frickin' sweet. And it's fairly easy to learn the controls. I really don't have anything to complain about. Nothing really bugs me. I'll definitely be buying it (I was planning to anyway ).

I played the demo full and through on the 3 available modes and I must say, even though it is short and the boss dissapointing, I was impressed. The game is very smooth and no lag at all when you blast 15 things up at once. Can't wait for the ps3 version in the morning to compare. Probably no difference though.

That kicked my ass. If the demo is a good indication then they are about to deliver on their promises of "kicking someones ass with the force".

Everything felt so free and it was the most freedom with the force I have ever felt in a SW game. Great cinematic feel and look. The battle at the end felt abrupt only because I was ready to play an beat the whole game at that point. Can't wait for PS3

Just played the demo, and all i can say is that it surpassed all my expectations.

I spended first 10 mins of the demo in the first room testing how the wall panels bended when i threw stuff at them!

Pretty much everything in the game was awesome, there was nothing i could complain about, except that the demo was too short!

Don't think so, it only takes about 5-10 minutes to complete, but you get to practice some powers in a training room if you want, I've got my 360 through my old SDTV atm cause I'm moving stuff about, so i cant comment on graphics yet, I'm gonna run it through my HD monitor in a bit and see. Yea it's cool, although I just want the full game more now lol and I've gotta wait 3 days longer than the rest of the world?!

If they (Lucasarts, I mean) had a demo for the Wii it would have been out by now.

IGN I think probably played a pre-release version, which is often referred to as a 'demo'.

I was on a trip to go see my little sister get married and my brother has an X-Box 360, and he downloaded the demo. Let's just say I probably played it like 30 to 40 times in three days. That's how much I loved that game. Looking forward to playing it when it is released on September 16. I'll be playing it on my Wii.

In all honesty, while the technology - and the implementation of it - shows a great advance which opens the door for future seventh and eighth generation games to accomplish great feats, the gameplay itself is underwhelming, coming off as average action game material.

Comparing it to the ROTS game doesn't seem far off, the only areas where it really breaks forward are graphics, physics engine, and freely-controllable camera. At it's core the game itself is same old same old, been done before in many games by many developers.

Personally I'm not averse to generic action games of this nature, but the genre's been done a lot and TFU doesn't particularly innovate on it any more than ROTS did. Even though they've enhanced the Force powers to the point of being borderline overpowered, it still doesn't seem to give the game any more depth beyond that of a button-masher. Sure it's got flashy visuals and looks slick, but it's still a generic button-masher one way or the other.

I'm probably going to end up buying it anyway, because though it's generic as far as action games go, it does have the traditional action game characteristic of still being really fun to play despite it's simplicity.

But, the gameplay is what counts in my book, and having played the demo through quite a few times, it's really not going to be revolutionizing the genre. LucasArts focused too much on the technology and not enough on the game, from where I'm standing, and that's their one weakness when it comes to developing games in-house - they're too preoccupied with showing off and not occupied enough with raising the stakes as far as overall quality and gameplay experience.

Overall, given what was promised, I'm rather disappointed by the end result.

Perhaps the retail version will have some significantly more innovative level design than what was shown here, which will contribute some significant variations and elements to TFU's gameplay that seperate it from the rest of the genre. But then, maybe that's just wishful thinking to further justify the 40 it's going to cost. Will have to wait and see, really.....

You don't have to innovate the genre when you put the words "Star Wars" on it. It just has be decent enough to be playable, and it will sell. All you gotta do is generate a little hype.
