Starting today, the Force is with you, gamers.
LucasArts has finally released their long-in-the-making "Star Wars: The Force Unleashed," across nearly every major gaming platform.
If you're picking up the midichlorian-powered game today, don't you want to know what the developers are hoping you'll check out?
As we did with Rare for "Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise," we asked LucasArts to compile a must-do list for "The Force Unleashed." Without further ado, here's what "The Force Unleashed" producer Julio Torres suggests you must do when you play the game:
LucasArts Developers' Must-Do List For Players of
"Star Wars: The Force Unleashed"
(Multi-platform Action Adventure, September 2008)
When you get to a wooden bridge do a “charged force push” against the construction by holding down and letting go of the B button and watch the fur and wood fly!
Tie Factory Construction Facility
When you get to the hangar work your way across the first walk way to find a good boost!
(SPOILER WARNING - The rest of Torres' list contains the names of each of the game's levels, the last of which is a big spoiler.)
Beware of the toxic sludge, but if you can find a way around keep your eyes peeled for a nice reward.
Keep your eyes out for the carnivorous plants that grow in the large rancor grove; they’re normally quite docile until they’re provoked into attacking following an electric shock!
Try smashing corridor windows with a well aimed barrel or force push and watch as enemies are sucked into the cold, depths of space.
Be sure to keep a look out for carbonite hoses and barrels. If used correctly, this extremely dangerous substance will freeze your foes in their tracks!
Ozzik Sturn’s trophy room has become the final resting place for many of the galaxy’s big game. Be sure to check out all of the trophies and perhaps you can spot the Kowakian monkey-lizard, presumably a cousin of Jabba’s jester, Salacious Crumb.
Disgusting Sarlacc blisters are a real turn off except when you throw an unsuspecting enemy into one!
Jawas can be found scavenging the junk piles of Raxus. If one gets too close you can give him the boot with a close quarters grapple by pressing the saber attack and jump buttons simultaneously.
Be sure to avoid the Death Star’s lasers, but don’t hesitate to use this deadly weapon to your advantage by using Force Grip to dangle enemies in its path once you’ve reached the firing tubes.
