    Disturbance in the Force

    SoylentBob
      Yeah, this is CoD, but in case anybody's chomping at the bit to get the Force, you can wait for this one.
      It's purty 'n all, but glitchy as all get out.
      It's plagued with character freezes, slow menu interface, disappearing objects (including a nasty one where everything but you and the landscape disappear making it really difficult), Engrish a la Zero Wing, and a hackneyed story that's not in sync with the mythology.
      Plus they cut corners by recycling.
      A total let down from what I expect from the Lucas universe.

      Definitely needs a patch.

          Are you talking about The Force Unleashed?  I got it this weekend, but I haven't played it yet.  (Double XP weekend and all...)  My son has been playing it like crazy, and I have noticed a few week spots here and there.  Over all though, it is hard to dislike a game where I can Force Grip my enemy by the neck, lift him in the air, throw my lightsaber at him and impale him, then blast him with a 3 second long charge of force lightning before throwing him off a cliff.

            The combos are a little more advanced than God of War, but you still take out mini bosses the same way.
            I don't like the way it queues up button presses if your combo gets interrupted or when you're button-mashing and it goes into mini-boss finish mode.
            I do like that you can Force Grip a Star Destroyer, but that's....

            The Force toss follow cam is fun sometimes, plus it means you got bonus points for style.

            I didn't like my character freezing, and having to wait to get slowly pounded to death by a lone storm trooper before the level reset. I also didn't like have a Boss freeze (and be immune to attack) either. The damn thing keeps auto-saving but you get sent back to the start of the level if it crashes or you die, which can be a pisser (although you keep the points and Jedi powerups so you don't have to dig them up again).

                  I've played about 5 hours total so far. I haven't noticed any freezing yet.

                    I haven't played it yet but I'm being told buy everyone to just rent it...not worth the money considering the fall releases coming up...

                      You May be a
                      Redneck Jedi if…


                      You’ve ever said, "May the force be with y’all."
                      Your Jedi robe is camouflage.
                      At least one wing of your X-Wing is primer-colored.
                      Even though you had to kill him, you thought Jabba the Hutt had a pretty good handle on how to treat his women.
                      In your opinion, that Darth Vader feller "just ain’t right."
                      You find no grammatical errors or syntax problems with the way Yoda talks.
                      You have ever used The Force in conjunction with a bowling or spitting contest.
                      You have ever used The Force to get yourself another beer so you didn’t have to wait for a commercial.
                      You know that duct tape is like the force: it has a light side and a dark side and it holds the universe together.
                      Your father has ever said to you, "Shoot, son. Come on over to the dark side! It’ll be a hoot."
                      Your Jedi master ever said “My finger you will pull.... hmmmmmm?”
                      Your landspeeder is painted with a Confederate flag.
                      You've had an X-wing up on blocks in your yard.
                      You've lost a hand in a light-saber fight because you had to spit.

                          you use your light-saber to cut the bottlecap off a beer.
                          you say "these are not the beers you are looking for."
                          that "disturbance in the Force" was just last night's baked beans.
                          the inside of your house looks more like Dagobah than the outside.
                          you call your young padawan, "Junior"
                          you have ever used telekinesis to pull your jeans up.
                          the Force isn't the only thing that runs in your family.
                          you call Hank Williams Jr. "Master".
                          your landspeeder has a gun rack.
                          you meditate to old CCR records.
                          you call Yoda your Li'l green buddy.
                          you have ever said, "Anger...Fear...Aggression...Yankees...the dark side are they."
                          your X-Wing has a still in it.
                          your light-saber has a beer can crusher in the base.
                          there is more oil on your robes than in your astromech droid.
                          your robes have the Golden Flour label on them.
                          you trim your beard and find a Mylock.
                          you have ever used a light-saber to light the barbecue grill.
                          you use Jawas for a drink holders.
                          you fight with a light-saber in one hand and a spit cup in the other.
                          you use thr Jedi mind trick to stop the beer truck.
                          you use your Jedi healing powers to clear up your VD
                          you think the best use of your lightsaber is picking your teeth.


                          but seriously folks, you can defeat the game in 1 try (if it doesn't lock up).
                          I defeated one of the optional end bosses only to have the game cut out, with no final cinematics unlocked, just back to the console screen.
                          He was easier to defeat than the other boss, who turns out was the underboss after I totally kicked his asp. Go figure. Then I was treated with an end cinematic so lame it rivaled Assassins' Creed.

                            Glad I found this one.   The Redneck Jedi stuff is quite funny.  Thanks for the laugh, even if I had to go back to page 358 to find it.

                                                  I did.   And I'm quite pissed off that there is no mention of a Redneck Sith.   Grrr !!!   Sith are not Yankees for feks sake.

                                                  You might be a redneck Sith Lord if your girlfriend has a matching right and left black eye.

                                                      Are you talking about The Force Unleashed?  I got it this weekend, but I haven't played it yet.  (Double XP weekend and all...)  My son has been playing it like crazy, and I have noticed a few week spots here and there.  Over all though, it is hard to dislike a game where I can Force Grip my enemy by the neck, lift him in the air, throw my lightsaber at him and impale him, then blast him with a 3 second long charge of force lightning before throwing him off a cliff.
