Why we’d rather be a Wookiee than a Jedi/Sith in The Force Unleashed II

Realistic Wookiee arm-pulling physics

Hands up if you were deeply disappointed with Force Unleashed's Euphoria Physics engine. Yeah, it was a bit pump wasn't it? Why waste all that fancy technology letting players pull Star Destroyers out of the sky in a horribly frustrating sequence, when it could have been use to realistically render a Wookiee pulling an arm from its socket. For shame physics boffins. For shame.

Wookiee Bowcaster FTW!

Bowcasters are awesome. Part crossbow, part sniper rifle; the default weapon of choice for any self-respecting Wookiee is infinitely superior to a lightsaber. Namely because you don't have to put yourself four feet away from a Sith (as he tries to slice your spleen up with his laser sword) to use it. The perfect weapon for long range combat, we can only imagine how amazing Chewbacca Silent Scope-style sections would be. Oh, and Darth Maul would definitely have made Episode II if he'd just been packing a double-ended Bowcaster...

The Wookiee Tarzan holler

    @FNG That's actually a good idea. And the game is awesome.

    Nothing against wookies...don't particularly love them but don't have anything against them. That said, how could you possibly want to play as them over a Force user (particularly a Sith).

    Nah, Star Wars games on console never fee right and not even Chewie and mates can save them now. the films became a weak joke the minute the effin Ewoks appeared with their "teddies battering the Empire with twigs, rubber bands and small stones" battle plan-so only TWO good ones. I'm a bigger fan of the first two movies than anyone I know but the way people stuck with the last four films amazes me as I didn't think they could get worse after Jedi! Anyway, none of the games EVER have impressed me so I failed to see just why anyone was that annoyed with genero Starkiller? Was he really that bad after all the other crap we SW fans have faced? And don't talk about canonical nonsense when canon contains Jar Jar, K? Seriously, who didn't just want to curl up and die the minute that twat appeared to rub insult into the pussy injury the Ewoks started. So, no, whatever they do any new SW game will be average at best and likely not that good. Hell even Battlefront and the MMOs are no great shakes so what did we expect from the SWlite Unleashed franchise? Lucas has totally lost anything he ever had when it comes to SW.

    @Cyberninja @Link I actually enjoy all 6. They are all awesome. And to keep this relevant, arm pulling physics would be amazing.
  • Cyberninja - May 5, 2010 10:20 p.m.

    @link why does everyone not like the new movies anyway
  • FNG - May 5, 2010 8:42 p.m.

  • Wolverine08 - May 5, 2010 3:47 p.m.

  • db1331 - May 5, 2010 3:35 p.m.

    Just be thankful you aren't forced to play as Jar-Jar and shut up.
  • thesuperspacejew - May 5, 2010 3:20 p.m.

    Wookies are not to be underestimated.
