    Star Wars the Force Unleashed is a game which is just mindblowing

    Star Wars the Force Unleashed is a game which is ........... AMAZING. This game is just the best Star Wars game on the planet. You take on the role of Starkiller who is Darth Vader's secret apprentice. In the beginning you are just hunting Jedi but throughout the game you do other things. Let's talk about the story. The story of this game is the best story on this planet. There are a lot of twists in the game which leave you blown away.
    Ok gameplay. The gameplay is really fun with all these force powers you can use. Using them is just amazing. The best way to play the game is to put your lightsaber away and use your force powers on every person you see. There are many force powers you can use. Grip,Push,Lightning,Lightsaber Throw and a lot of force combos. I am very satisfied with the force powers. The lightsaber stuff is cool too. There are all these combos you can use. Now the Jedi battles. The jedi battles is in a different camera which i like and it is very satisfying.
    There a lot of things is the game. A lot of characters, A lot of locations and a lot of vehicles. You will be fighting rebels, stormtroopers, droids, wookies, felicians etc. The locations are pretty cool as well. You can be in Kashyk (sorry if i misspelled that) Felicia, Raxis Prime, Space stations. The environments are really great and really beautiful. The vehicles. You won't be fighting a lot of them but seeing them. But the ones that you will fight are the AT-CT and the AT-ST. Finishing those vehicles are awesome. You either crush or slice it in half. And my favorite vehicle that you bring down a............ STAR DESTROYER, you bring down a star destroyer using the force. Really great moment when that thing came down.
    The sound is good. It is what you would expect from a game like this.
    There a couple of unlockables. In the game you will find holocrons which give you force points, lightsaber crystals and costumes. Yes it is true if you hate the red saber you can change it. There are two colors that i did not know existed. Ok you have your green,blue,yellow,orange,purple but you also can unlock gold and black! The costumes you mostly unlock when you finish each level but there are two you have to unlock. There are about 13 costumes.
    Each time you level up you get these points which you can upgrade you character. There are three types: Red which are force combos, blue which are the force powers and yellow which are basic things like making your health and force bar bigger.
    Now the bad things of TFU. The game is really short. I beat it in about 6 hours but i didn't get all the holocrons so i have to replay the game and get them. So we are talking about 12 hours. The loading time is unecceptable. It is too long. Let's say that you pick easy level (which is called apprentice level) and you kill guys easily but at some level it is so hard that i keep dying. Imagine how the hard level will be(which is called Sith Lord i think) And lastly this game has some grahpic glitches. Oh i forgot the cutscenes are really cool and beautiful and the graphics are cool too.
    So Star Wars the Force Unleashed is an amazing game which had the stuff to be perfect but did not take advantage of those things.

      What levels it succeeds on can't match up to its faults 0

      The Force unleashed should have been one of the greatest games of 2008; it should have perched itself as a nominee for GOTY; it should have given Star Wars geeks all that more canon story to add to their catalogue. TFU was meant to do a lot of things, but sadly only managed to live up to a few.As a story it does at least give some more insight into the destruction of the Jedi , the birth of the Rebel Alliance and even more character development for everybody's favourite robotic asmastic. There i...

      Star Wars- The Force Unleashed... almost... 0

      After all the hype surrounding this game, it doesn't quite deliver, but sure doesn't disappoint.  TFU is truly a remarkable piece of work, putting together Euphoria and other physics engines that make the game truly 'unleashed'. You start the game off with a killer tutorial playing as the masked metal-head himself, DARTH VADER. But soon, you get to control Darth Vader's secret apprentice, called Starkiller. not to ruin the plot, the story is not bad, taking your character to a wide variety of lo...
