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.

Quotes

Maris Brood: All right, you've won. The senator is yours. There's no need to kill me.
Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice: You are a slave to the dark side. I'd be doing the galaxy a favor.
Maris Brood: It's not my fault. Shaak Ti abandoned me here. This planet is evil. Corrupted me. But you? You can save me. Just let me get away from here. Just let me go, and I'll turn my back on the dark side.

Make Starkiller his movie please
22 October 2018 | by WeAreLiveSee all my reviews

Well what can I say? This game is pretty much what a star wars fan should play.

So Darth Vader invades a planet of wookies, he battles a jedi finds out that the Jedi had a son. Years to come he trains the son to become his apprentice and calls him by the name Starkiller.

The actual game play is good, some levels were frustrating but I still got there.

The GGI was also good and so was the Mocap from the actors that voiced and motion scoped them.

The only thing I didn't like was the ending but overall it was a good game.
