Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Review

NintendoStar
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. Being influenced by George Lucas’ new trilogy, the developers of LucasArts gave gamers what they always wanted; more worlds to explore, more plots to discover, and more Sith to battle.
  • Pros: Lots of Force Powers, Cool lightsaber action, Great music and VO, Solid replayability
  • Cons: Weak cutscenes, Too easy, Poor camera angles

  • 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. Targeting is bollocks, the force feels underpowered and boss battles are terrible.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Review (PS3)

  • Excerpt: The Dark side… I’ve heard murmurs that this has been the most expensive game ever developed (I don’t believe that’s the case…), and it’s an absolute must have for die-hard Star Wars fans. To be honest they’re the main driving reason why the franchise is still knocking about, and whilst I really like the original trilogy (not so much the recent films), my nostalgia gland tingles on familiar locales in the game, not to mention the rousing fanfares that ebb and flow...
  • Pros: Must have for Star Wars fans, The story
  • Cons: Repetitive button-mashing gameplay

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Review (WII)

15 September 2008
  • Excerpt: The Force is not all that strong with this one Ah Star Wars. One of my big vices – the films, the toys, the books and of course the Video Games! And what a lot there have been some good but more than a few bad! On the release of the Wii I, like most Star Wars fans, was practically wetting myself at the prospect of a Star Wars game that would make use of the WiiMote.
  • Pros: It’s Star Wars!, It is fun in parts, Good story
  • Cons: Controls just don’t feel right, Not all that long
