    The adult language is an integral part of the humour of this game. If you don't want your kids to be exposed to this then heed the warning and don't let them play. Never assume that computer games are all "kid-friendly" by default. That said, I found this game, it's unique style and setting, to be completely awesome.

    It looks pretty, but the demo quickly gets boring. There's no variety in enemies, the battles, or the linear map. I'd pass on #1. However, Episode 2 is now out, and that demo has more meat on it. Battles feel more alive, with different formats of encounters, and good use of the real-time battle clock. The maps feel more natural than being caged into a little lane, even if there isn't a whole lot more to explore. Both episodes are now selling for $15 apiece. At that price, get them in Lucas order - Buy #2 first, and only get #1 if you really need to fill in why Fruit Vader turned evil.

    One other thing, their Mac publisher has worrisome activation for PAA. If their store ever shuts down in the future, and you need to re-install, you're stuck. Just like with Wal-Mart or MS digital music purchases. On the third, and final hand - This is not an endlessly replayable title, so I don't expect to miss my ephemeral license years from now.

    It's quite unique, very nice graphics and ideas - but it's got some very foul language. Just wanted to put up a note for parents, this is not for kids (or for those that don't want to blasted with lousy surprises.) Why not keep this kind of creativity clean? JP

    Can't tell you anything about the game yet, as it's still downloading, but I can tell you something: The graphics/game look(s) absolutely brilliant! I am looking forward to trying out this game - well done with first impressions!
