The Force Unleashed: Demo Out Now

I’ve been waiting for this game for a long time! I’m a sucker for Star Wars, and this looks amazing: The Force Unleashed is the story of Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, and fills in some of the gap between Episodes III and IV of the Star Wars saga.

If you’re an xbox360 or PS3 owner you can get your hands on the demo of The Force Unleashed by visiting the Xbox Live Marketplace or Playstation Network.

Having played the demo through, I have to say that the game looks very good: it is visually rich, and the Stormtroopers and Rebel Troops all behave pretty intelligently. There’s a real feeling of scale in the demo level too, set in a Tie Fighter factory. If I had one complaint, though, I would say that you don’t really get a sense of the power of the Force… I was expecting to be blown away by the force powers, but I just wasn’t. Mind you (and this is a big mitigating factor), this is only a demo of the first level so I would imagine the force powers will only get bigger and more impressive as you progress through the game. Compared to early levels of, say Jedi Knight II, this looks like it’s going to be much more fun! Looks like a definite purchase when it comes out next month.

Go, download the demo. And if you can’t, here’s a video to whet your apetite:
