Revenge of the overused pun headline... 02 Aug, 2004, 15:39 / 2 comments

... Unleashed. A couple days ago LucasArts announced that they would, to the surprise of nobody, be making a Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith game. Hopefully this game will be awesome, AKA the opposite of the Star Wars: The Phantom Menace game. Wooee!<:MORENEWS:>

The game sounds like combat based 3rd person action/adventure fare. The usual. The press release says: "Players will control all the Jedi abilities of both Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, including devastating Force powers and advanced lightsaber techniques involving robust combo attacks and defensive maneuvers. As Anakin, players will unleash the power of the dark side in ruthless lightsaber and Force attacks. As Obi-Wan, players will struggle to save the galaxy from darkness by focusing the power of the light side into swift and precise lightsaber attacks and using the Force to control enemy actions."

There's some more in there about how people who worked on the fighting and combat moves in the films will be overseeing the fighting in the game, so that might be cool. If you're interested, take a look at the press release.

Here's hoping they don't screw this up. I want LucasArts to actually get a couple recent successes under their belt, no matter how cheesy and franchisey -- at least then they might consider growing some balls.

    I wonder which will be worst: the movie or the game? ;)

    At least I'll go see the movie to see if they get it right by mistake, and I want to know if everything will finally be explained, or it will just end up like T3h Matr1x.

    Remember when things used to be good? I sort of do. Maybe I was dreaming.
