Force Commander was a bit of a wash out, wasn't it? Except for David Warner doing the voice of the Imperial Officer. He really should be in the films proper.

Yeah I disliked Force Commander a lot. The camera control was terrible and playing an AT-AT wasn't all it cracked up to be. I couldn't get very far on it either. I'm not too good at realtime strategies!

Deus Ex was pretty cool, heres a game for you to try its an adventure game called The Longest Journey, it might start out slow but man the graphic and sound is awesome.

I liked X-Wing Alliance a lot. The best SW space sim ever.

You all gotta get Diablo 2. The Diablo2 online is brilliant.

Force Commander was actually relatively easy, but you had to be very patient.

Deus Ex is a classic, of course, but the system spec was deceptively high. And the textures were unimaginative, but that's a bic picky.

X-Wing Alliance was pretty good, but didn't have enough in the way of a co-op mode like, say, Freespace 2 or Starlancer, so you couldn't do some of the great things you could in X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter (and the scale is all wrong in bothn games). And now the PS2 is getting the new Star Wars spacefighter game! Damn!

Diablo 2 is great, but the characters skills are STILL unbalanced (the expansion will fix that with any luck) and Battle.Net is still running too slow. In fact, even over a network Diablo II runs dodgily enough to spoil the enjoyment. Only the Host knows where anything really is!

Black and White is coming soon. THAT'S the big game of the year.

Well X-Wing Alliance reminded me again of the great fun I had with Tie Fighter.

And I stay away from Diabolo II, it's a little too addictive for me.

I really liked the game Blade Runner. The graphics were great and I like games where you have to solve mysteries and stuff. I also really like Tony Hawk Pro Skater.

Yes, Blade Runner. But I got stuck somewhere in the scene where the guy runs out of the bar into another one. Then you have to wait for another guy, but he never showed up. A friend of mine had the game too and he got stuck at the same spot. Weird....

I wouldn't have called Blade Runner's graphics GREAT, as such. Functional is how I would describe them.

I've played through it several times and seen all the endings. Quite honestly, with some variations of the plotline, moving on is just a matter of wandering around the arcade, bar or shopping area again and again and again. If you have real problems, start the game again and it should be easier.

Or give me the specifics- I may be able to help

I tried all that, I did all that, numerous times. But the guy just never shows up. Anyway, it's been a while, so I don't feel like picking it up so soon.

Do you mean the bit with the chef? If so, then just click on the floor when he pushes the massive pot of soup over and that makes McCoy dive out of the way, so that you can catch the chef quicker.
I did like Blade Runner, because, like JO said, solving some of the cases is quite fun, but personally I didn't think the use of voxels was a great idea. It made all the characters blocky and wierd.
As for X-Wing Alliance, I simply LOVE it. It really does stick with the Star Wars atmosphere as you fly through space blasting Imperials with John Williams' music blasting out of the speakers. Great stuff.
And Deus Ex is one of my favourite games. I completed it a while ago, but I'm still playing on some of my save games just for the fun of it. It's a shame a multiplayer wasn't included, because that would have been SO COOl.
And Finti, personally I found The Longest Journey a bit dull and unappealing. It's nothing compared to the Monkey Island saga or Grim Fandango.

I was never a real fan of computer games, consoles are my bag, though I did like Gangstersembarrasment rganized Crime and SW Rebellion. But right now my favorite game is Shenmue for Dreamcast, probably the best game I ever played. Kessen is in my second spot for PS2 (crazy hard game)

Teeeheeee, DD and me love the same SW Game.

But no, DD, the scene I mean is way further into the game. It's when you get into this weird dark bar. You can sit down in te corner and then the entire seat and table turn into another, private, bar. And there you're supposed to meet someone. But as I said... he never shows.

Didn't anyone else think that the lasers fired too slowly in the X-Wing games? The fighters fire at machine gun speed in the films, but they are far more sedate in the games.
And due to the need to keep the speeds in the game practical, the scale seems all wrong. You gently drift by Star Destroyers instead of racing past them. The trench sequence in X-Wing was very leisurely! Oh, they were still great though, and nothing compared to getting on a network and playing a full X-WIng squadron in a game of X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter...

Queeg- did you get either of the security photos from the back room in that bar, in the room with the (POSSIBLY) poisoned chair (or sometimes you are immune to the poiso, of course, because you are a Replicant)? Sometimes Q (I think that's his name) doesn't show until you've either stolen a photo from there or had him give you one. And even then, it can take a lotof going in and out, thoguh you day you already did that...

I don't know which securit photo's you talk about. I got everything from the murder scene, I even got myself a walkthrough and all that looked fine. It also said I should walk in and out a couple of times, or restart the game. I did that so often, including going to different places, that I got very bored. Ah well, never mind.

So we might be getting a Jedi Knight II. Did you hear that already?

It's gone belly up for PC, not for PS2. So as compensation they might be giving us Jedi Knight 2. Whatever. As long they HURRY UP!!!!
