Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Review
23 August 2009
Excerpt: It was a period of rebirth and renewal for the Star Wars series. The release of the prequel trilogy brought with it nostalgia for the old, and a new world for the young. But it also brought with it something else: a new direction for the Star Wars videogames.
Pros: Lots of Force Powers, Cool lightsaber action, Great music and VO, Solid replayability
Cons: Weak cutscenes, Too easy, Poor camera angles
Summary: Parents need to know that much of the gameplay revolves around combat, but there's no blood or gore, and you're fighting primarily against alien creatures or faceless stormtroopers. However, the fighting is relentless, thus garnering the "T" rating and our age recommendation of 12.

Excerpt: "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." Words that I have seen many times in many ways. These are words, that when grouped together, spell out one thing – I am playing or watching something to do with Star Wars.
Wii/PS3/X360 Preview - 'Star Wars: The Force Unleashed'
20 December 2008
Summary: Set between the largely unexplored era between Ep III and Ep IV, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed casts players as Darth Vader's "Secret Apprentice" and promises to unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: It's not what I wanted, it's not what I expected and it's fundamentally broken in many different ways. It's a callous cheat of a game, it's shallow, short and has a man doing a crap Darth Vader impression.
