Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
9 June 2012
Excerpt: Everyone knows that between the three first Star Wars movies and the new trilogy some questions remained unanswered. According to George Lucas himself those would be answered in a trilogy of games, the Force Unleashed title.
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.
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.
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...
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
