That's funny, the damage doesn't look as bad from out here.

The demo is the Mos Eisley Level with create your own character "free-play" of the same level afterwards.  You get to drive a sweet vehicle in the demo though. smile

Just finished the demo... Bliss!  Builds nicely on the stellar original.    From the demo, it looks like Han'll be my "go to guy" for combat situations.  As well it should be. smile

Day one purchase for me.

I don't understand this game.  Are you guys buying it for your kids, and then playing with them?

or

Is this a game for adults?  

What kind of game is it?  FPS?  RTS?  RPG?  The description I read said "Puzzles and Humor".  I have heard numerous people talk about it here and there, but honestly always thought it was something parents were playing with their children.  Maybe I'm wrong?

Don't have children.  biggrin

I bought the first one because, despite my age, I'm still a fan of both Star Wars and Legos.  I still get a big goofy grin when that score starts up and yellow text scrolls into the distance.  It's just in me.

The first game played to this in spades.  The sound is great (as it usually is with Star Wars titles) and the character/location designs are spot-on.  The gameplay is a fluid action/platformer with clever and inventive puzzles throughout.  There's a huge dose of humor that pokes fun at both Legos and Star Wars with an honest love for each.  With the possible exception of an occassionaly wonky camera, there's not much to dislike.

Try the demo.  You just might like it.

This is what I wanted to know.  Now at least I have some sort of idea what kind of game it is.  I may just check it out.  

What systems will it be releasing for... anyone know off hand?

Thank you! Thank you!  I had no idea the demo was coming out.  I can't wait to get home to play it.  Hmm.....mow the lawn...play the demo...mow the lawn....play the demo.  Which should I do?

Day 1 purchase for me already.  The first was a total blast.

If you have a tractor and a laptop, do both at once!!

I can't imagine that setup not working.

Day 1 purchase for me also. (Although I'll probably end up getting the xbox 360 or PSP version as my PC is really behind the times.)

Aha!  Which, of course, leads me to my next question.  Considering it is an actiony-type, platformer-type game, how do you think it would play on the 360 if I got it for that?  Probably pretty good, right?

I use a Logitech gamepad plugged into my computer, so I'd reckon it'll play just dandy on a 360.

It's really designed for a gamepad, keyboard control is awkward but doable.

Honestly, go pick up a copy of the first Lego Star Wars.  You should be able to find it cheap, and it's damn good fun.  You'll easily get your money's worth.

It really is one of those rare "fun for all ages" kind of games.  Kids will surely enjoy it, but things like the Star Wars recreation of the old Zaxxon game are only going to get recognized by old timers.

OK.  I'll go try and find the first one on the cheap.  I need to do some research as to which system to get it for (assuming I have a choice that is).

Pretty sure the first one was also released for the three majors of the time.  I have it on PC.

The first one is also on the 360 Backwards Compatibility list, so you can pick up the XBox version and get used to the controls on there.  

I hadn't heard that this second one was coming to the 360, so that is cool news.   Looks like it will be $50 like the other versions, so that's a plus.

I agree you'd need a gamepad to really control the game, so it's perfectly suited for the 360. The first one was a multiplatform release, so as Engine already said if you have a 360 you can pick up the xbox verison since it's BC.

I'm looking forward to the game so much I may end up getting both the 360 and PSP versions!
Just wish they included some kind of online multiplayer though, as this "wireless multiplayer" BS is getting old.

Went through the demo again to fully explore the level in Free Play mode.  I'd forgotten how much fun I had getting into all the nooks and crannies in the first one.  The interior of the movie theater is a real treat.  biggrin

I like the demo, my sons LOVE it.  

My only major complaints are that it doesn't support 1280x1024, and both players have to use the same keyboard (wheres the lan mode!).  Otherwise, a sure purchase in these here parts.

Putting together the ATST and running around with it was just - fun.
