After trying it out, it takes around 3-4 headshots to kill an enemy without helmet.
Well placing your shots will help you save ammo. However, the crosshair isn't made for accuracy. Had they kept the standard +, it would have been better. Even the ironsight isn't very accurate.

The pistol works fine for me. :\

Two shots to the side, then club.

2 shots to the head and dieing works for me. They really need to make the primary gun you should use (the DCrifle) more powerful than the secondary handgun. It's like Halo, the handgun was mor epowerful and accurate than the machine gun.

Does anyone have an idea about how far into the game the demo takes place?
In the briefing in the beginning the clonetrooper says something like "at least this time we'll take em by suprise" or something don't exactly remember, but that indicates that this isnt your first mission in the game, which is pretty obious too.



I tried
so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

I think the XBox demo is one of the first two missions, this might be later in the game (probably somewhere in the middle)

With the pistol at close range, I prefer to club once, then shoot in the head once or twice. The clubbing usually knocks off the helmet and knocks them off balance, and the shot easily finishes 'em off.

Club 'em? Silly people! It easier to just sneek up behind them when your squadies are providing a distraction, and use the 'E' key for that knife thingy, Deffinately not clubbing, and much more fun. Don't you love how there is a little laser windshield wiper that clears the guts from your healmet?

Wow, this could be the one.

After playing the demo, it was a refresher. It reminded me of the beauties and intricacies of the best Star Wars FPS: Jedi Knight. In comparison to any other FPS out there, it didn't fall short at all. It had badass weaponry, crisp graphics, and a unique musical score (a nice touch considering that every Star Wars game basically rips from movie titles).

The squad element is impressive. Command is easy to manipulate, especially with given formations (Form up, secure area, recall) and suggested operations in the environment (hacking, demolition, sniping). Revive was the most astonishing aspect though; I love the distorted, hazy red mask view of the battle above.

The atmosphere was dark and intimidating. Awesome. The enemies were similarly cold. This quality in the setting and NPCs was a major setback to JO and JA: they were too cartoonish.

I can't wait for MP. I can't wait for this whole game. w00t. LEC gets a clap from me.

RC could be the FPS that will secure LEC's past reputation as a quality game producer.

Yes, I didn't bother to resize them so they are huge (like 160 kb's), only converted to JPEG. They are also fairly dark, but that's how you see them in-game.

Demo "Special" Weapons
All weapons have reloading except the pistol, which recharges (infinite ammo) much like your first gun in Unreal. The grenades you toss don't seem to have variable throwing power or distance, just fire and forget (like SWBattlefront). The Sniper Rifle has two levels of zoom.

(PS: It's interesting how you can't heal the Wookiee's and they can only use melee attacks themselves)


Then you get to use that Trandoshan Turret that fires missiles, and you get four types of grenades. Thermal Detonators, electric shock ones, sonic grenades and I forget the other type. There's a Republic Gunship in the demo, but it's used in a cutscene, rather than drivable.

Your wrist blade only seems to work using the Trooper weapons, except the pistol. For the pistol and everything else you do a rifle butt or pistol whip attack which seems to be just as powerful, although a few of the bigger guns are slower.

If you're curious what your character looks like in third person, here he is, and here
Fixed the broken links, and here's a pic of the Trando heavy machinegun! So that's all the demo weapons....

I thought that the demo was great, from gameplay to graphics to sound. I was amazed at the variety, coolness, and attention to detail in the graphics, especially the special effects, but what impressed me the most was that on probably my 5th or 6th time through the demo some situations still played out differently, and the squadmates still had (hilarious) lines that I hadn't heard the previous times. You can have just as much fun just messing around with the game and your squad as you can simply playing the game through.

Easily missed detail: the concussion rifle's melee attack electrocutes the Trandos (even if they're already dead).

The demo can be downloaded here. It should explain how to play the game when you start playing the game.

Also, posting in topics more than 30 days old is called '"bumping," and it is against the rules. Make sure you check the date of the last post before posting.

spoiler:
Note to Astor: I'm not trying to be a mod . Let me know if you would prefer I just leave bumping warnings to you. Thanks

No worries, LoTF. But, as a general rule, it is best left to staff to deal with thread-bumps and such, I don't mind it in this instance, but try to use the report button where possible (note that this is general advice to everyone, not just yourself).

Zorothon, as a general rule, posting in topics that are older than 30 days is considered a bump (although this is largely down to staff discretion), but as it's a first offence, I think we'll forgo the warnings. Please read and familiarise yourself with the rules to avoid any situations like this in future.
