Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

Strategy Informer
18 January 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.

  • 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: 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. The Force Unleashed II provides similar delights on occasion, but overall, this sequel is less enjoyable, less varied, and shorter than the game that came before it.
  • 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

  • Conclusion: While Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was a pretty flawed game, I enjoyed it - mostly because of the story about Starkiller, Darth Vader's secret apprentice. While the whole "most powerful Force-user in the galaxy" might not have been popular with every Star Wars-fan, I found Starkiller oddly likable and added a bit of good Star Wars-drama which many games in the franchise have lacked for a long time. With Force Unleashed II, Lucasarts are bringing back Starkiller.
  • Pros: Kicking ass with the Force is fun, great graphics, Starkiller himself still rocks
  • Cons: Repetitive, major technical issues, boring level design, same enemies over and over, story is much ado about nothing
