a good game that could have been great (ps3 version)

Summary: the story is great, the acting is great, but the gameplay itself has a couple fails. the camera perspective leaves much to be desired; during regular gameplay it just simply has occasional farts (ie not staying on enemies when you lock onto and/or attack them), but the boss battles are where it...
Summary: It was interesting and it did have potential but it was a poor start. Starkiller (a terrible name BTW) is a boring character, The story isnt interesting, Its too repetitive, Short campaign, and using force powers does get old rather quickly. It also has a bit of uneven difficulty as well.
Summary: I bought this at the now much reduced price, and just completed the main story today. Being a devout fan, I will admit to being less than impressed by the story at first, although I do think it improves towards the end, particularly with the dialogue (which starts off fairly horribly and gets a bit...
Summary: Great story, great graphics. Completely arbitrary controls. Game is hard, not because it actually is (ie Ninja Gaiden series), but because the character fails to do what you want him to. If the game itself was playable, this would've been a great game.
Summary: They should have called it The FAIL Unleashed Pros: -the graphics are great. -you have quite a bit of control over your character's growth and upgrades. -the story is awesome, really, its the only thing that kept me playing it! -interesting character, level and boss design.
Summary: I liked the story and was overall entertained by the game. However the halfassedness is very easy to spot. You have a fun time with the force powers and physics but the saber combat is very weak.
This game ended up as disappointing in practice as it was promising in theory

Summary: I always wonder why star wars games for the most part end up being crap, i mean some for sure are good, but for the most part they're either bad, or barely slightly above average. With some notable exceptions of course which i'll mention in a bit.
If only the apprentice had learned basic fighting skills...

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.
Summary: This was one of the most disappointing games I have ever played. Lucasarts let us down after more than a year of hype and of course that is all it was hype because there was no substance to this game. As Darth Vader it
Summary: The people who rate this game above a 5 are people who work at LucasArts or people who eat every little crumb and morsel that drop out from George Lucas' beard. Sure, the basis for the game is fun.
