Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 Review

26 October 2010
  • Summary: Starkiller (or his clone?) returns in the sequel to the smash hit Star Wars brawler. Boasting improved combat and beautiful visuals, The Force Unleashed II should live up to the promise of the flawed original. But all is not as it seems...
  • Pros: Much improved combat system and level design, Top quality voice acting and the beginning of an interesting story, Beautiful graphics and art design that capture the Star Wars look
  • Cons: Incredibly short, Story is unfinished, ends in cliffhanger, Some stuttering when lots of stuff is happening at once

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

26 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Darth Vader's secret apprentice Starkiller may or may not be a clone. This mystery, however intriguing, takes a back seat in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 as Starkiller crisscrosses the galaxy in search of his old friends, slaughtering hundreds of Stormtroopers and droids in the process. His quest has plenty of style, but is there any substance here?

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (PSP) Review

24 October 2008
  • Summary: I kind of feel like I’m giving a raw deal. Other than the graphics and camera (which are really inexcusable in this day and age), we’re not dealing with a terrible game here. The gameplay is repetitive, but I’ve played far worse. The story didn’t rock my world, but it kept me interested and compelled me to keep playing, which is the first and last responsibility of any game’s narrative. The problem all comes down to promises.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

13 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Have you ever wanted to be a secret Sith apprentice, hunting down the last remnants of the Jedi order for Darth Vader as you hone your skills with the Force... That's the basic premise of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed from Lucas Arts, a game that will give you more control over the Force than any other game before it.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (PSP)

  • Excerpt: One thing you can say about Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on the PlayStation Portable is that it lives up to its bigger console cousins. Like those games, it makes an attempt to tell an impressive story, but the gameplay betrays it. Luckily, there are a few additional ways to play this stripped-down port of the PlayStation 2 and Wii versions that keeps it from being a total loss. The basic plot involves a young boy raised by Vader as his secret apprentice.

  • Conclusion: An entertaining new chapter in the LucasArts saga, but one that could have used a bit more time to fix silly technical flaws before being unleashed

  • Excerpt: Вот на прошлых выходных смотрел фильмы "Звездные войны" по ТНТ и вспомнил о игре Star Wars: The Force Unleashed , которая пылится у меня на полке уже без малого 2 года. Все эти звёздные мечи, тёмные силы всегда мне чесали руки, а теперь, когда я прошёл Star Wars: The Force Unleashed могу рассказать вам своё впечатление. История: Игра рассказывает о событиях между 3 и 4 частями легендарной истории. Дарт Вейдер в ожесточенном сын умершего джедая бросает вызов ситху.

Star Wars - The Force Unleashed

21 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Fünf lange Jahre sind vergangen, seit die nimmermüde Star-Wars-Franchise-Maschinerie uns mit "Jedi Academy" ein grandioses Action-Adventure bescherte. Das lang erwartete "Force Unleashed" schliesst nun die erzählerische Lücke zwischen Episode III und IV. Während auf den Next-Generation-Konsolen vor allen Dingen die opulente Optik des Spiels beeindruckt, rücken bei der PSP-Version wegen naturgemäss schwächerer Leistungsfähigkeit spielerische Elemente eher in den Blick.

  • Summary: Technisch hui, spielerisch naja: „The Force Unleashed“ ist für Fans der Star Wars-Reihe ein Knaller, für „Normalspieler“ eher ein Gähner. Zu linear, zu einfach und zu wenig Abwechslung - das alles teilt sich mit einem technisch guten Spiel den Platz auf der UMD. Wer Spaß an kleinen Machtspielchen hat, der kann ruhig zuschlagen. Alle anderen sollten um diese entfesselten Kräfte einen Bogen machen.
