Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

Strategy Informer
5 February 2011
  • Conclusion: With precious few of those quality gameplay moments and a plot that limps along in need of focus, unfortunately Force Unleashed 2 ultimately fails to live up to the interest of its broken but far more compelling predecessor. With a running time of around five hours on normal difficulty and a dearth of additional content, you might want to think long and hard about whether you're due for another dalliance with the dark side.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II Review

VideoGamer.com
6 January 2011
  • Excerpt: As far as sequels to multi-million selling titles go, Force Unleashed II is one of the most disappointing. It's not that the first game was superb - it was merely an entertaining game set in the Star Wars universe - but that the sequel could, and probably should, have been able to better it. While LucasArts has created a fun, and at times visually stunning game, the campaign is over in next to no time at all and there are very few memorable moments throughout.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
1 December 2010
  • Excerpt: I should make it clear that I actually enjoyed the original Force Unleashed , unlike the majority of those who played it. Sure, it was a little bit unstable (alright, very unstable), and the combat felt a little detached, but it was saved by a brilliant story and fantastic writing. In this way, Force Unleashed II is almost the exact opposite of its predecessor.

  • Conclusion: With The Force Unleashed II , LucasArts has made notable improvements regarding visuals and combat. However, the story is so short and lackluster, you'll quickly wonder why you're playing.

  • Excerpt: received only a lukewarm reception from the critics, but the fans loved it. It made perfect sense to do a sequel and given all the feedback they received, one would assume LucasArts would’ve produced a vastly superior follow-up. Well, they certainly worked on the artistry, cut-scenes, story and a few other intriguing facets but too many of the flaws remain and in the end, we get an adventure that feels a little too tiresome and repetitive.

The sequel to the best selling Star Wars game is here, but is the Force with it?

3 November 2010
  • Conclusion: Reviewing The Force Unleashed 2 breaks my heart. As a rabid Star Wars fan who’s gone so far as to tattoo symbols of the franchise on my body, I wanted to jump into another epic story that better fleshes out Starkiller’s story. It’s disappointing that The Force Unleashed 2 not only fails to tell an interesting yarn, but also somehow manages to make the cool combat mechanics feel relatively pedestrian by failing to have enough variation in combat, or enough outside of...

  • Excerpt: Thirty years later, we get Starkiller, who crushes TIE fighters with his mind, electrocutes Stormtroopers by the dozen without pausing for breath, and can instantly produce a Force-powered battering ram. It's weird what you have to do to come off as powerful, once a setting's been around for a few decades.
