Force Unleashed SUCKS!
23 December 2008
Summary: Another reason why Lucas Arts has lost my respect! Star Wars: Force Unleashed has ruined me. I can no longer just enjoy a game. I must nit-pick it for its flaws and then wallow in my loathing and hatred for poorly designed games. Let me explain: Controls: The targeting does not work. You try to lock on to an opponent who is obviously killing you and instead, you grab some space junk instead.

Summary: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed had the potential for a great story, great game play, and an all-around great entry in the abysmal field of Star Wars video games. Sadly, it fails to live up to its potential. The story is mildly entertaining, but extremely predictable. The controls and gameplay are frustrating and difficult, often times working against you. The graphics and sound are good, but nothing spectacular.
Summary: I enjoyed the demo for this game very much because I felt like a dangerous, powerful jedi. I was frying gangs of stormtroopers with my force lightning and wading through their puny blaster fire to cut them all down with my lightsaber. Only when I bought the game did I discover that the demo features a completely "maxed-out" character, and that the demo level's entertaining mayhem is not at all representative of the game as a whole.
Summary: This had the potential to be a great game, but it is unfortunately poorly handled and ultimately unsatisfying. After the initial stage, you may feel the urge to turn the game off, put the controller down, and trade it in for a better game. Not a disaster, but very dissapointing and frustrating for the most part. Still, if you can't fight the urge to try it, just rent it out for a bit and that will be enough. 4/10 ...
