"I've got a bad feeling about this" 3

Prior to the Spike Video Game Awards last year, it was confirmed one of the new reveals would be a game in the Star Wars universe. Fans, to put it mildly, went crazy as debates and theories about what it could possibly be ran rampant. Would Bioware finally make a long and emotionally involved third installment to Knights of the Old Republic to coincide with their MMO? Would....whoever decide to take up the responsibility of doing a Battlefront 3? Hell, would someone even attempt at making a new ...

The Force is (kind of) strong with this one. 2

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is many things but let me first tell you what it is not: unleashed. The first one is what I like to call a beautiful failure. It was awesome in its own way, letting you be a complete awesome bad ass with crazy force powers and a really good story (for a Star Wars game). But it failed at being a good game: the level design was broken, the combat bland and filled with bugs that ruined the overall experience. The sequel kind of fixes these problems but doesn't suce...

The Force Leashed 1

  One thing I love about games is that it puts you into another world. Let's you escape reality for just a moment and be someone or something else for just a moment in time. I love movies for the same reason as well. They let you escape for just a moment and enjoy a storyline. I believe that one of the best stories that I have encountered in my lifetime is Star Wars. The films are adventurous as well as insightful to many prospects we all face in life, even if it takes place in a gal...

A new twist but falls short 0

Ok first off this game is a bit of a let down from the first, but what sequel isn't. Ok first I'm going to go through the cons of this game, first off and the biggest con is the story. While at the beginning it appears interesting at first it quickly looses it's luster and the game is centered around Starkiller either shouting or searching for Juno. Another thing there are literally four different planet/levels each level is long but it gets dry quickly and all too familiar. Second thing is the ...

Lucas Arts <3 Clones 0

   The original Star Wars the Force Unleashed was a series of technical problems and was incredibly short but was able to deliver an overall enjoyable experience. When I first saw the trailer for the sequel I couldn’t believe that it was the same character and that it was coming soon. After beating the game in roughly six hours, I have to say that as much as I loved Star killer before I wish he had simply stayed dead. The Force Unleashed 2 has a few moments of good but ultimately feels like a c...

Some Missed Potential 0

After having played through Star Wars The Force Unleashed II I can't help but feel like there was some missed potential. On one hand the game has what I consider to be some pretty amazing/impressive graphics, set piece moments, a decent enough story, and force powers that are of course pretty fun to use.  The issues are really how it's all tied together with far too much repetition, whether it's defeating the same enemies with the same simple strategies, or the fact that you end up back tracking...

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 Review 0

Star Killer has returned for the next installment in the Lucas Arts Publish Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2.   Has this sequel push the franchise into a new galaxy or does it fall short and end up in a black hole for videogame also known as the clearance bin.   First a side note, I did not play the first Force Unleashed, I wanted to but never got around to it.   After playing this game through I will probably not want to go back. The Force Unleashed 2 starts you out at the clone facility on Kam...

Which side of the force will choose? 0

The Original Force Unleashed was all about fast lightsaber action and dispatching of any one in your way as Darth Vader’s apprentince, and the end of that game brought up two choices. The sequel assumes you made one so that the story could make sense. The story in this game is great, and the action has been ramped up quite a bit, so fans who enjoyed the original will like this game. Who is Starkiller? Once again you are Starkiller, the secret apprentice of the Sith leader Darth Vader since the ...

Really shallow 0

 After an uneven first title, SW: TFUII takes another swing at physics-heavy Jedi gameplay. Starkiller --- who, mind you, died in the original affair --- returns to exact revenge on his former master Vader. Now, let's go ahead and say that the story has problems. Yes, you died last game. Except, you have been CLONED. Yes, Lucas' lame storyline premise controlling the prequels is done to make the "good" ending in the original absolutely pointless. But, let's be honest, nobody plays these ga...

Sometimes a hero should stay dead 0

Sometimes a characters story is very self contained and can be told in just one game, it's the reason why we don't have Brutal Legend 2: More Brutal or Psychonauts 2: Look more brains. While the original Force Unleashed story wasn't of Bioshock caliber it did finish the characters story perfectly. Besides how many loose ends can a characters story have when he kills himself at the end? According to Lucasarts he apparently had so much that they needed to find a way to bring him back from the dead...

A Mistake From Start To Finish. 0

 When The Force Unleashed was released to gamers in 2008 it had its share of flaws, but over the top action and interesting story made it a worthwhile experience. When LucasArts announced The Force Unleashed 2 it wasn't a shock given how successful the first was financially, it was a shock given how the first game ended. Less of a shock and more likely to leave a foul taste at the sides of your tongue was the reveal that the Starkiller you play as is totally a clone that's only concerned with fi...

Bummer. 0

I'm really wondering what version of this game that Brad played.The version that I played was horribly fraught with technical issues, to the point where I just wanted to walk away from it on multiple occasions. And for a lifelong Star Wars fan who finds even the most grievous changes to the films defensible, that's saying a LOT. There's a sequence with mechanical spiders and EVERY time you do "the move" to clear the spiders the game would freeze for a solid half second or more. I quipped on my F...

Well I am real glad I rented this game.  It can be completed in 3-5 hours, depending on the skill level.  I enjoyed the first game, and thought the sequel would be grand.  It turns out that just like the first game.  Same powers, same enemies.  The graphics are improved and are very good, also the action keeps moving throughout the game.  But it is over very quickly.  In one day I beat it and got 40/50 achievements.  Also the final battle is very disappointing.  The battle with Vader turns out t...

Review: Star Wars the Force Unleashed 2 0

So let me ask you a question, do you like fighting and killing the exact same 6 enemies about a billion times over the course of about 6 or 7 hours? Cool, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 is the perfect game for you then. Maybe 6 enemies is a little low, there is an enemy at the beginning of the game that shoots an ice spray at you, but when you encounter him later in the game, he shoots fire instead, so we’ll go with 6.5 enemies total.The Force Unleashed 2 is a game that, to me, should have bee...

Its shocking brevity undermines all improvement over the original 0

Ever since I watched Star Wars for the first time I wanted a light sabre, I mean who didn’t? It has to be one of the greatest fantasy weapons ever, unfortunately, humanity doesn’t seem to be very close to containing super heated plasma inside a magnetic field so Star Wars games are the closest we can get to actually wielding one. The original Force Unleashed really didn’t nail the feeling of wielding a light sabre nor did it really maximise the potential for the force powers, it was a pretty av...

When will the force really unleash? 0

 The game has addictive combat and the graphics are very amazing. The cutscenes feel like they are ripped straight from a Star Wars movie and the voice action and character animation is amazing. A huge step up from the last game. The boss battles are epic and on a large scale. The game also has some of the most epic scenes I've seen in a game.On the down side the game is very short. About 5 to 6 hours long. That seems to have become the average length for games now days. I've also read a lot of ...
