Star Wars The Force Unleashed II
Bring Balance to the Force....
I LOVE Star Wars, The Force Unleashed 1 was a good game, had a great story and great graphics, but it was too short and had plenty of glitches. Hopefully this one won't have so many glitches, and the new force powers look incredible. Plus, the graphics are even better now. I don't know about the whole Star Killer clones thing, but I still can't wait to play. Boba Fett AND Yoda both appear in this game. I'm hoping for the best for this game, a lengthy campaign and a good story, fingers crossed. Can't wait!
Amazing at first but ...
the game is amazing at first at least...then you beat the game....you beat it again on UNLEASHED ...then what ? .. my point is that theirs nothing to do once you beat it; challenges are boring ....they should of made something like firefight on this game
I liked the first game, but the follow up leaves nothing to be desired. Here are my dislikes: You can complete the game in 4 hours. No story line conclusion. Repeating levels, with no challenge. No save ability, other then "save points", which means if you want to stop you will have to wait until you finish a "level" or redo the "level". The level up feature is "score point" related, so if you want to really up your skills you will need to come up with new ways of kiling the same people again and again. The feel of the game was just walk a straight line and kill everything in the room, then repeat, then repeat, then repeat. You only have one choice in the game. "dark side or good side" and that happens at the end. The game is worth 19.95, the $59.95 is not a realistic vaule. In conclusion, bewarned that you will mostly be board and over changed. I am very close to saying bye bye to all Lucas based games. The name is lossing interest and credibility faster then I can hit the eject button.
Just Play the First One.
Being the gamer that I am, I loved the first Force Unleashed, and thought it had a good ending. When I saw this game, I got excited. I played the demo and I liked it but it seemed like there was a lack of moves & techniques, but I didn't mind it. So luckily, I only wasted $17 on the game. I played it all excited and stuff. But then the ending snuck up after, what, like 2 missions? Are you kidding me? You make a sequel to a great game, and it ends up sucking? In the first game, there were techniques, an unforgettable story, and great gameplay. This game was the complete opposite. In fact, I wish I could forget the story. Then again, it's not like there even was one. The ending was so pointless. No, the GAME was just pointless. "I, the almighty Starkiller must come back from the dead, or be cloned, or whatever, to either die or imprison Darth Vader, which creates a huge "plot-hole" in the Star Wars series by the way." This game didn't even have a point. That's basically it. Just play the first one.
a great game until you beat it.
i had reserved my copy for tfu2 going with all the hype it was recieving. i even went to the big midnight release. and let me tell you this game is not worth it. i beat it in 2 days and the ending is one of the worst ive seen in a video game. and if you think it has alot of levels but i just beat it too quickly think again. the game only has 4 levels! i repeat 4 levels! i dont see how it took them 2 years to make this game and this is all they could come up with. dont get me wrong the gameplay is very enjoyable from beggining to end, and the freefall sections are very entertaining, and this game wouldve got at least an 8 if it had at least 10 levels. there are only a few things i hate about video game and thats short length. when i spend 60 dollars on a game i expect it to last me a year. another thing i didnt like was the storyline, yoda and boba fett only appear once in the whole game. if you are a star wars geek like i am rent it, dont buy it, rent it! trust me it is not worth it! unless you want to buy it and then trade in in, be my guest. my final score: 6.75
Well it seems that the game follows the plot that Starkiller died in the first game. Because Vader is present in the opening, so you obviously didn't kill him. And they already made a bunch of DLC with you being the dark Starkiller.If this is just a clone created by Vader, then I can see a possible plot development of trying to find out about yourself. And they'll probably bring back Juno Eclipse as well to add that other sense of continued romance. It looks like Starkiller gets some new gear in this one. Two BLUE lightsabers which is interesting. And it looks like if you thought Rancors were hard in the first game, then your gonna get destroyed by whatever that other thing was in the trailer. Also, I really doubt it, but it might be cool if they did some thing like Mass Effect here. Choosing light and dark stuff to affect gameplay. (I know KOTOR has already been made) but it seems that Starkiller is struggling in the beginning of the trailer betwn good and evil. Gonna be a good game.
I was really excited to get into this game. I was hoping for a classic Star Wars RPG with a heavy emphasis on action and an engaging story line in between epic battles. This game falls short in every category.
First, you're railroaded into a linear storyline with no character or plot choices whatsoever. Your character progression/build out choices aren't fulfilling (they don't have much impact on gameplay). And then there's the gameplay. You bash hoards of baddies with your lightsabers, and when something big get's close to death, you go through an animated button sequence to finish them off. Each finisher is interesting the first time you do it, but it soon becomes a grueling chore to grind through your battles hoping the story is about to get good. And just when it starts to get interesting, the game ends. Expect *maybe* 20 hours of gameplay.
Think of this like a very, very short version of God of War, set in the Star Wars universe, and completely absent of any redeeming story elements.
Best Star Wars game yet!
Although it may be short, it is a great game. With graphics that will make Halo Reach look like Halo 3. Graphics are truly amazing. The only downfall with the game is how short it is. I beat in over the course of two days playing around four hours each day. People may say "I beat it in two hours", but thats not possible. Unless the hacked or modded the game! The customization is nice with the color sabre''s you can use, to the changeable costume ( two extra costumes are unlocked if you beat the first TFU on both light and dark sides). The DLC is 80 MS points thats roughly $1 for an extra stage. SImilar to the first TFU "Endor" is the DLC stage, fighting Princess Lieah and Chewbaca and Hans Solo. Obviously you are a villain in this DLC (like the first TFU's DLC). There is also more DLC that has challenge stages and a worldwide leaderboard. All in all its a great game worth a 10, but with how short it is i'd give it a 9. Any Starwars fan will love this game, as it delivers more action, visuals, storyline, and force powers to your fingertips. I recommend buying if you like the series. As i have both (The Force Unleashed and The Force Unleashed 2) limited edition versions. *If you want to try the game first, they have a demo of it, download it, don't rent it*
the force unleashed 2
through all the star wars games that are made by lucasarts George Lucas Star Wars the force unleashed is the best game so far but i can't wait until the second one comes out and all the adventures that come with it and i never seen a better star wars game yet than the force unleashed and my second favorite is going to be the second force unleashed. And also some other star wars games that are coming soon. And however the games that have star wars in them and i have the feeling that the force unleashed 2 is going to be the best one yet! And yet the force unleashed is my favorite star wars game ever! Lucasarts has done it again! And this website doesnt have alot of comments and i think most of the comments should be star wars games on this website. And i have a feeling that theres going to be more games on this game, on this website. And also i like that they make these star wars games really good. And thats why i like star wars video games in the world! I really do!!!!!!!!!!!!
Prettier than the first, but not better.
I sat down after a long day of work with the Force Unleashed II ready to bring some mad Force skills to the galaxy. A great deal of Force powers were already available for me and Holocron cubes seemed rather easy to find. All in all the game was being enjoyable while not totally stressing me out. Four and a half hours later the game was over. Needless to say I was very upset at a game that had a campaign shorter than a Halo game. I shelled out 80 bucks for the collector's edition with high-hopes. Needless to say those hopes were killed quicker than a jawa. The dissapointment associated with this game is enough to consider not even following the development of the obviously upcoming third installment. I would recommend to everyone to wait until this game is $20 or less before getting it. While it has nicer graphics and a rather smooth gameplay it really isn't worth the money. If there is any DLC to come out it had best be free or dirt cheap.
