Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Ultimate Sith Edition review (PC)
17 January 2010
Excerpt: Full disclosure: I am not a Star Wars fan. I love the original movie but have no use for the bloated monstrosity it's since become. I find no end of amusement in the fact that the best Star Wars game to come out since the 1994 classic TIE Fighter had to be set so far away from the Lucasian "canon"...

Conclusion: The force was unleashed on this game alright, it just happened to be the dark side of the force. The controls seemed to have been programmed by Darth Vader himself. If you can get past the terrible controls you'll be in for a decent story, great visuals and music.
Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition - PC - Review

Excerpt: It’s been several years since LucasArts first asked its fan base, “Would you be interested in playing as a Star Wars villain?” Apparently, this idea was met with some enthusiasm, and the result was The Force Unleashed for console gaming systems.
A slapdash porting job turns the Force into a farce in this Star Wars action game.

Summary: The first sign that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is a mediocre port comes as soon as you boot up the game: you can’t navigate the menus with a mouse. On its own, this isn't an awful fact, but it's an omen of bad things to come.
Pros: Intense story is one of the best Star Wars tales in years, Fantastic physics engine lets you pull off all sorts of cool moves, Includes three extra chapters not included in original console release
Cons: Unstable frame rate and other performance issues, No effort to tailor the port to the platform, The new Hoth mission isn't very good
Excerpt: The Force Unleashed was a great concept and a better narrative let down by a handful of mechanical faults and poor design decisions. A sequel was always on the cards but unfortunately what we're presented with fails to meet the high expectations expected of the license.
Pros: More fluid combat, the Force Unleashed empowered mode delivers on its titular promise.
Cons: Extremely short, very careless storytelling, a lack of variety in enemies, still more quick-time events.
