Concerned About Game Speed

Maybe I'm over-reacting, but it seems to me the new trailer shows an unrealistic lightning speed game that's so fast it will be impossible to enjoy true fights of skill through maneuvers and everything will come down to who clicks the buttons faster instead of tactical gameplay.

How are we going to have light sabre duels if gameplay is this fast?

And what's with the Stormtrooper with a sabre? lol

The stormtrooper with a lightsaber is a human in multiplayer.

Raven has said that the real Saber battles have never been caught on camera well. We've only seen small bits of it.

Duels will go fast if Im uber god and your uber n00b though.

Its not that the gameplay is necessarily fast.. its just JK was rather slow paced. JKII isn't going to be turn based.. so you will need some reflexive skills and hand-eye coordination.

i thought the same thing when i first saw it
i think its just cause they glued together all the fastest actiony bits of screentime they had on file to try and make it as exciting as possible.

also when your actually controlling the game maybe it will seem a bit slower becasue your more absorbed in it...i hope...

It's just the huge number of shots they had to stick in such a small amount of time. Plus, they're obviously going to show scenes with the most action in them

This is one thing I am most certainly not concerned about, when I saw the PC Gamer UK trailer I was concerned that the game was going to be too much slower than the original JK but now it seems right in line with it.

And yes patchx is right to point out that the editing has a lot to do with this.

I'm very pleased with the pace.

It is probably not as fast as it seems in the trailer.

Remember, it is a quicktime movie, so the speed can alter reality.

Chan, the man himself, said that it does does look pretty fast but he guesses it;'s becauae they put together all the actiony fast parts

too fast? what r u crazy? its not fast enough, besides most saber battles will be done with no force im guessing so u dont need to worry about it being to fast, my worry is that multiplayer will be too slow copared to jk1

Yeah.. I remember d/lin a DII trailer way back in the day... And I remember the animations all seemed so FAST.. like when he would be running around it seemed all way 2 fast.. I think its just how they are set up people.. I dont think Kyle will be running 100 mph after all...
