For example, I found myself doing the same moves over and over again, and the game felt repetitive because of that. Maybe that's the reason why I can't decide if the game's length is really an issue. It's pretty short, but I guess it's kind of a good thing considering it's redundancy. Another complaint I have is that the voice actor for Starkiller reminded me of Hiccup from How To Train Your Dragon, and when you're making an action game, that's a problem. Other problems like the frame rate dropping towards the end of the game and, much like the first, unnecessary platforming bog down the experience for me, but it's good that they at least put in less platforming and more of just killing dudes.
But there are many good things about Force Unleashed 2, like the presentation. I thought the cutscenes and story were well done and I found one of the endings (which I'll rap about later) to be pretty fucking kick ass. The gameplay seems more of a God Of War clone this time around, which is probably not a bad thing, there are more moves to pull off compared to the first but it's still pretty repetitive like I said earlier. It you ask me, the positives are equal with the negatives and it makes for a pretty solid, three star game.

First of all, the end boss fight is pretty dumb. It's long and boring, and at one point I felt cheated. Vader randomly destroys the platform I'm on while I'm killing the other enemies that are there, and the battle doesn't have very much checkpoints, in fact it only has one. But I felt like the ending paid it off...the evil ending at least. Like...FUCK! Didn't see that coming. I loved the "Oh hey, lemme stab you again, oh wait you thought it was someone else but I'M ANOTHER CLONE!" And I love how everyone dies. I just loved how fucked up it was. Now, the good ending is meh. How did she survive that anyway? I liked the evil ending far more, maybe I'm just a bad person.
Did you play The Force Unleashed 2? What'd you think about it?
