Star Wars: The Force Unleashed User Reviews

7.0

Search your feelings, you know it's a good game.

The good:

Every mission until the Star Destroyer level
The storyline
Presentation of Darth Vader
The fact that you fight an old man, an outcast, a member of the Jedi Council, a kind of 'shadow', a guy in an AT-AT, a corrupted apprentice of a former victim, a friend and a mentor.

The bad:

The missions after (and including) the Star Destroyer level
The ending(s)
Some forms of lightsaber battle
The combos

Summary:

You'd think any game with Darth Vader, Darth Maul and pulling a Star Destroyer out of the sky and into a city would be a good game. And undoubtedly, the game is pretty awesome until Level 8, or the level 'Impereal Raxus Prime'. But I'll get onto that later.

The journey of Starkiller makes for a very interesting storyline. The journey from young boy with a talent to Sith Apprentice and then to Jedi sounds like the opposite of Anakin's story, and in some ways it is. But his adventures from a junk heap in the stars called Raxus Prime to the tropical Felucia (remember Aayla Secura from Battlefro...

7.0

Decent, but flawed.

The good:

The storyline, destructible environments, force skills

The bad:

Repetitiveness, lightsaber battles, maps, consistency

Summary:

I recently purchased this game after reading some fairly positive reviews. I can't say they were justified, but I can't deny that the game isn't too bad.

Starting off as Darth Vader slaughtering your own troops and wookies was immense fun. Getting used to the force powers available to you in this game, whilst also destroying your enemies with your lightsaber. The graphics are impressive, and the voice overs are pretty decent although at times annoying.

One thing that really bugged me when I first started playing the game was the amount of time it took for each menu to load up. Whether I want...

Unleash the Power of the Force!

The good:

+ Cool moves/force powers
+ Nice graphics
+ Good storyline

The bad:

- Short
- Poor replay value
- Glitches

Summary:

The Star Wars franchise is one of the largest out there today with media ranging from movies, books, comics, and even video games! With all of these things bouncing around for decades, you would have to live in a cave to not even hear of it. In the latest installment in the Star War series for video games, The Force Unleashed aims to please, and doesn't miss!

I was one of the few that actually went more than a decade without seeing any Star Wars movie, reading a Star Wars book/comic, or playing a Star Wars video game. In fact, it wasn't until about May of 2008 when I finally became engulfed ...

Star Wars: Force Unleashed for Wii

The good:

-The game play is nice.
-Explains a lot in the period between Episode III and IV.
-Story is excellent!
-Sound is excellent!
-You really feel unleashed!

The bad:

-No use of jumping.
-Duel Mode is just a gimmick.
-Too short.
-Hardly any replay ability.
-Didn't have as much combo's as the 360 and PS3 versions did.

Summary:

Star Wars: Force Unleashed gave an incredible first impression, even as a Star Wars game but more time on the game would have made it a lot better! That's not to say though that it isn't a good game, it's a great game but there are some minor and major let downs of it though.

-Graphics:

The graphics for TFU are really detailed, from the level design to the ships to the characters. The only let down of it is that the game play graphics are better than the cinematic graphics. [4.0 out of 5]

-Game Play:

Who wouldn't like a Wii game where you can utilize the Wiimote as a lightsaber where you move t...

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

The good:

-Great use of Wii technology
-Decent cut scenes
-Ability to change cloths, lightsaber abilities and colors, and develop force powers
-A Tutorial on some of the moves used in the game.
-Autosave feature

The bad:

-Single player mode is rather short
-No WiFi multi player modes
-Camera angles and modes can be frustrating

Summary:

The second Star Wars game makes a decent debut on the Nintendo Wii. There has been a lot of talk about this game, and for the most part, it deliver an entertaining experience although there are some issues that keep this game from being the best Wii title thus far.

Graphics: The graphics in this game, in some ways, remind me of those in recent Sim City games, especially the people. These graphics will not create a sense of wonder and awe, but there aren't lousy either. I like the multiple cut scenes in this game, and I thought they were very well done. My main issues are with the camera angl...

7.0

Another example of a good game that could easily have been better

The good:

Force powers, customizable costumes/lightsabers, excellent story, innovative gameplay, Destructive environments.

The bad:

lackluster jedi battles, frustrating combat mechanics, enemy/location diversity, quick playthrough

Summary:

So, Force unleashed came out yesterday, so I ran to my nearest video store, took the day off and spent approx. 5-6 hrs playing force blasting my way though it.

So what's the verdict?

Overall, Lucasarts has done a wonderful job utilizing next-gen technology to create a fun filled and enjoyable title. Taking control of a "secret apprentice" to Darth Vader, the player gets the opportunity to feel what it would be like to really be a jedi. The story (Which, I'll add, is the only one in a game to be officially acknowledged by Lucasfilms as Canon) takes you across multiple worlds an...
