Storyline

This entry in the Star Wars saga casts players as Darth Vader's "Secret Apprentice", unveiling new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. The expansive story, created under direction from George Lucas, is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In it, players will assist the iconic villain in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi - and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny. As its name implies, The Force Unleashed completely re-imagines the scope and scale of the Force by taking full advantage of newly developed technologies only possible on next-gen consoles that will be seen and experienced for the first time anywhere in videogaming.

Emperor Palpatine: Your very public and painful executions will serve as an example to the rest of the galaxy.

worth it
29 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

General over view:

cons: the game is too short problems with the camera for some its too easy to beat

Pros: The game is beautiful - fantastic art. the music is awesome..and of course familiar. The acting is great. In particular the lead actors- The Apprentice, Juno, Proxy, Maris and Kota. The way their images were used in the animation was cool. The performances they all gave were great...also the voice actors for the smaller roles, I thought were good too.

The story is great too. There was a lot to fit in, and I didn't think they would make it work, but they did. I was happy with what they created and how it all tied together.

I think the main problem was over-hype. The game is great- it just was slightly less amazing than the initial hype lead everyone to believe. I don't know how they could have made everyone happy - but I think this worked for the majority of the masses. I know I enjoyed it and almost all of my friends felt the same way.
