Summary: On average, TFU wasn't a bad game. But for some reason, it just wasn't that great all of the time. Sure, it had some good ol' Star Wars action in there, but... the levels are repetitive, the secrets aren't really all that... secret... or rewarding for that matter... and the physics are clunky at times, usually when on the topic of knockback on the player.
Summary: The Force Unleashed was a very anticipated game. Unfortunately, it wasn't too good. It was a decent enjoyable game. It wasn't as interactive as i thought it would be. In other words, i would have named the game, "Star Wars: The Force on a Leash". Because, there isn't really much force as i expected. Sure you can do basic lifting, throwing, pulling, and send stormtroopers to their electrifying death, but, it really isn't something new. Weve seen it before.

Pros: It has all the Star Wars you've come to love and more but also has all the Star Wars you've already known. Dont get me wrong this is a great thing if you are a fan but leaves little if you arent. The story is a definate value addition to the mythos.
Cons: I was struck by the mission similiarities , the feeling of Ive played this before in Dark Forces I and II . The fighting loses its grandeur due to poor camera angles and your character starts actually diasppearing off screen in the middle of battles.
Summary: Set between the two star wars trilogies, this game game boasts a strong storyline that will pull you in. The gameplay is similar to god of war but with the twist of force powers. You could, if you wished, make the game into a repetitive button mashing experience but this would be unwise as it would take away from a lot of what the game has to offer.
Summary: Overall the game is quite good and has some very cool set pieces (the taking of kashyyyk in the intro level looks very cool!). The graphics are decent although there are a few loading glitches when you start and characters speech is intermittent at best. This soon irons itself out thankfully as your PSP 'gets used to the game'.
Summary: The 9 year old is on the game as I type this review and loves it. He is a star wars fan and has seen all the films so it could have been tricky to meet his expectations but it did. He finished it in 2 weeks playing for an hour per night so its not long. If you want to loose your child for 6 months get monster hunter 2 for the psp .......that is a truly massive game that he loves and still has not finished. He has 350 hours against monster hunter according to its counter.
Conclusion: Only had it a day and completed it already. Great game and graphics with some awesome options for Force Powers, but oh so easy to complete. You can finish most enemies off with 2 or 3 force moves. The gameplay is very repetitive....kill loads of Stormtrropers/minions then a short boss battle which is not hard at all. Finished game in less than 5 hours playing time..
Summary: Tfu on psp is great, although it does have a few drawbacks. Loading times are long and frequent and it freezes quite often. But hey slicing through a ton of stormtroopers and jedi espicially is preetty darn fun!It lasts around 10 hours which isn't too shabby for a psp game. Think star wars/god of war and you've got the picture. Part from the loadtimes and freezes this is a very enjoyable game that is worth 4 stars.
