So who's playing this?

I picked it up yesterday but only just started really playing today.  About 3 levels in so far.  Loving the graphics and story.  It's crashed on me once last night though which was a bugger.  I'm running it on 360.  Anyone else here into it yet?

I'm loving it... the graphics and gameplay are well wicked. My only gripe is the placement of some of the Holocrons (you put it where?).

I'm running it on PS3 so no achievements for me.

I was considering buying this game. Do you think its one worth buying, or am I better off renting a version?

I think it's comparable to the God of War games (so I've been told) or Heavenly Sword, so if you liked any of those...

Personally, I find if in doubt, rent first. I get my games free from Video Ezy or Civic with the "2 for 1" vouchers (i.e. movie for "us" and game for me) so I've done a lot of testing before buying. A good call in some cases too.

IMO you could probably finish the game in a solid day or two of gaming so renting is a possibility.  It's pretty basic gameplay but it is fun, and SO worth it just for the story.  Amazingly cool, I need someone else I know to play/finish it so I can talk about it with them haha  It just turns A New Hope etc completely on their head for me!

I finished this last night, not a very long game at all!  I don't know if it's worth the price tag to buy, considering the time it takes to beat it.  But still definitely worth playing if you can rent/borrow it.  I got stuck on the star destroyer level for a while until i figured out that to beat it you should NOT follow the on-screen instructions LOL
