Don't get me wrong, it was fun to play over in Anaheim but hardly worth that sort of price tag

It's a linear based game using rear projection on a curved screen with some wind feedback

But that's about it!

The Graphics were hardly mind blowing compared to some modern games

Your best bet is to save your money for a decent rig/graphics card and wait for BATTLEFRONT!

It is so big and unnecessary!
Which makes us wanting it even more now.....
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.

Saw one of these in the arcade at Event Cinemas on Queen St, so they're definitely in NZ.

That's a definite possibility, but for us/me it'll depend on the suburb the midnight events end up being in.
