kinda but controls are easier on a pad but easily solved by adding an xbox 360 controller to your pc

it would have looked better on pc, i think the ps3 version is a port of the 360 version nor vice versa so it mustve been easier to do them on consoles

PC game==buy console game==I'll save my money

I was looking forward to it, but I'm not dissapointed about it in much the same way I wasn't dissapointed about GTA4 not being announced for the pc. I refused to buy a console for GTA4, so I am certainly not going to buy a console for a game that I feel will be a lesser game then GTA4[I like GTA a lot...].

Sounds like Knights Of The Old Republic.

I'm in the same boat as far as consoles goes. I do have a PS2 and may get it for that.

GTA is coming to the PC

Anyway, yeah, I'm disappointed. I have most of the Jedi Knight series for the PC, but none of them work 100% with Vista so I was looking for something new, but Force Unleashed has asshole developers who think that the PC isn't worth it (read: it'd be too difficult to program for so many different hardware types, it wouldn't look as good as it could - they're putting it on the DS instead....)

Still, I have it pre-ordered for the Wii.

The demo was dissapointing, and the reviews so far is also saying the game is dissapointing.

My word no, he's talking about the Original Jedi Knight (1997), one of the most awesomest game ever. It still ROCKS. I actually played the expansion (Mysteries of the Sith) not too long ago, and it's still very good, 10 years later. :)

@jbunch07: You should REALLY look up the sequels: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy. Both of them are SO good. Also, Knights of the Old Republic. Awesome. :D

Shame none of them work properly on Vista, and I'm not dual-booting just to play them :(

Jedi Academy just about works, but it's VERY unstable, crashes like crazy.

Never used a VM before. Might try it though.

Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy were AMAZING. I loved those games, hence why I am excited for this game.

I played the demo for PS3, and was mainly disappointed about the brutality of the lightsaber attacks. In Jedi Outcast/Academy, you could slice peoples arms and legs off, and it was Awsome. Now in this game you have all of this crazy for power and I can't cut some guys arm off? Come ON!

I loved the X-Wing vs Tie Fighter games and would love a new sweet space combat game ( im pissed about Freespace 3 not happening:nutkick:). I would love to wreak havok on a Star Destroyer....

I might have to try Academy on vista too.. not having that would annoy me... sweet sweet lightsaber customization....:respect:

Im getting the game no matter what.

Well hell, if I can't get it to work, then I will toss my Jedi Academy on Ebay and get $60 for it. Fixing to test it, installing now. I could have sworn that I played through it on Vista though.

Well on mine it will play, but it crashes if I go near fire, and randomly crashes for the hell of it.

Works perfectly in my Vista X64, just like the last time I played it. I run it in Xp compatibility mode and it does fine.

Play it until you get to the mission where you infiltrate the mining colony taken over by stormtroopers. There's a corridor that you have to pass through that's on fire. It will crash.

I too run it in XP compatibility mode. I had to run the installer in compatibility mode to get it to work (installed, just wouldn't boot, tried 3 times before trying compatiblity mode and it worked).

Hmm, thats very odd indeed. I remember playing through this game not too long ago and I beat it while using Vista. I know that I was using Vista because I also tried running it in Linux, and the only time I tried that was a few months ago.

Probably just my ridiculous bad luck with PCs...
