Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

  • 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.

Mildly fun action mixes with weird story twists and supereasy boss fights in this low-cost add-on.

  • Summary: Sometimes, you get what you pay for. The first premium downloadable content for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, the Endor Bonus Mission, will set you back 80 Microsoft points ($1), which seems about right for this short bit of Force-flinging bluster.
  • Pros: A couple of new, attractive environments, It's fun to chop up Ewoks, Really low price
  • Cons: Bizarre alternate-universe story, Easy, predictable boss fights, Slipshod character models and animations

  • 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.

This Force-powered sequel is a better port than its predecessor, but it never jumps to lightspeed.

  • Summary: The PC version of the original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed took a fine game and turned it into a technical mess. The Force Unleashed II takes a lesser game and delivers it in a perfectly playable state.
  • Pros: Great cutscenes and voice acting give the story poignancy, Rich art design makes certain environments stand out, Dual sabers and Force powers can make for fun combat
  • Cons: Lacks enemy and environmental variety, Inconsistent level of difficulty, The final boss fight is too long and too easy, Glitches disturb both the gameplay and the storytelling

26 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Suffering from an unfocused narrative, an overly brief campaign, and numerous technical quirks, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 serves as a disappointing follow-up to its 2008 predecessor.
  • Pros: Flexible combat looks and feels amazing; some seriously cool scenes and set pieces; fast personal progression.

Though occasionally enjoyable, this Force-powered sequel is a mere apprentice to its superior predecessor.

  • Summary: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed had its share of flaws, but it still provided a healthy dose of saber-slicing, Force-flinging action that made it fun to destroy the Wookiees, Jawas, and stormtroopers that got in your way.
  • Pros: Great cutscenes and voice acting give the story poignancy, Rich art design makes certain environments stand out, Dual sabers and Force powers can make for fun combat
  • Cons: Lacks enemy and environmental variety, Inconsistent level of difficulty, The final boss fight is too long and too easy
