12th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards Winner: Outstanding Achievement in Adapted StoryThe Star Wars saga continues in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. You are Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice! The Dark Lord of the Sith himself has trained you to use a lightsaber and unleash the power of the Force, but now your destiny is your own. Will you join Vader as the next great Sith, or will you choose to defend peace and justice as a noble Jedi Knight? 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.

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 that will be seen and experienced for the first time: Digital Molecular Matter (DMM), by Pixelux Entertainment, and euphoria by NaturalMotion Ltd. Paired with the powerful Havok Physics™ system, these new technologies create gameplay only possible on the new generation of consoles. DMM incorporates the physical properties of anything in the environment so that everything reacts exactly like it should - wood breaks like wood, glass shatters like glass, plants on the planet Felucia bend like plants on the planet Felucia would, and more. Meanwhile, as a revolutionary behavioral-simulation engine, euphoria enables interactive characters to move, act and even think like actual human beings, adapting their behavior on the fly and resulting in a different payoff every single time.
During the period between Episodes III and IV, players hunt Jedi in the role of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice.
Unleash and upgrade the Secret Apprentice's four core Force powers - Force push, grip, repulse and lightning - throughout the course of the game, and combine them for ultra-destructive, never-before-seen combos.
Examples of unleashing the Force in ways never thought possible: - The Secret Apprentice won't just Force push enemies into walls - he'll Force push enemies through walls. - The Secret Apprentice won't just Force grip foes to throw them aside - he'll Force grip them in midair, zap them with lightning, then drop them to the ground to explode like a bomb.
In addition to new adversaries created just for the game, such as fugitive Jedi and Force-sensitive Felucians, players will also confront and associate with familiar faces from the Star Wars films, including Darth Vader.
Visit locations such as Episode III's Wookiee homeworld Kashyyyk and the floral Felucia, the junk planet Raxus Prime, plus an Imperial TIE fighter construction facility.
Decisions made by players throughout the game will determine the path of the story, including multiple endings that will rock Star Wars continuity as they know it.
The Force Unleashed is LucasArts' first internally developed title for next-generation consoles, and it represents the first in-game collaboration of talents and technology between LucasArts and Industrial Light & Magic, two companies now finally under one roof at the new Letterman Digital Arts Center in San Francisco's Presidio district.
The Force Unleashed debuts Digital Molecular Matter from Pixelux and euphoria behavioral simulation from NaturalMotion Ltd.
LucasArts is preparing an unprecedented promotional effort around the launch of The Force Unleashed, encompassing a full line of toys and game-based action figures from Hasbro, as well as a full publishing program from Dark Horse, Del Rey and Palace Press.

Great but...I bought this a year ago and rarely play it because of one reason. There are a ton of scratches and it will only read after opening and closing the disc tray for hours. I used a cleaning and restoring machine on it and now it won't load at all. The game itself is amazing and I want to play it ,but because I didn't get a warranty and it's too late ,have to buy a new disc because the one I got is basically unusable.

Another "Could be Grea Game Suffers from GameplayIt's so fascinating to think that this game was, at one point, canon in the Star Wars universe before Disney bought the rights, but so far Disney has not released any thing that is supposed to be similar to this story so I still believe this is canon. The game is about 12 hours long in the story is what you would expect from modern Star Wars, The reason I'm giving this a 3 star review is because of the unholy amount of glitches and bugs in this game, and the fights most of the time are just unfair. They could have spent much more time ironing out the details and the character models are not as good as you'd expect, simply put, have they not aged well. But if you're a star wars fan DEFINITELY play this, and the sequel too, I have not played it yet but I will eventually, hopefully it fixed the bugs I was talking about... As for the music, most of the classics Star Wars theams and music have been re-used or re-made, such as Dule of The Fates. But the NEW songs like Starkillers theam is so, freaking, awesome. Its a peace of Star Wars history, I'd love to see a remaster but that will obviously never happen... BUT. Lego Star Wars remakes are coming and they were originally owned by Lucasarts, the same people who helped make The Force Unleashed, could this be the start of MORE remakes? Probably not but a man can dream.

Good OverallVery excellent gameplay and story, but the camera was and still is very difficult to use. Story is very good, though the choices allowed to be made felt last minute. Overall, it's good.

BrokenI just received this game and I was so excited to play it however when I opened the game it had a big crack in it and I was like well it is worth a shot so I put it in my Xbox 360. The Xbox 360 said that this wasn't an Xbox 360 game and went into like a dvd mode so now I'm super confused and wondering if this is even a 360 game. I was not impressed. Gamestop has not responded to any of my emails and im just really disappointed because I have ordered from here so many times and this is the first problem I have had and no one is helping me.
