This game has controlls that is obviously made for a console and not a PC. Wonky and terrible all the way. And the audio some times doesnt work properly even if you adjust the settings.

I can recommend it for the story and true Star Wars fan can push through and enjoy it for the sake of it being a Star Wars game. But I cannot recommend it for PC....buy it for a console.

Can I get my money back?

Force powers, although initially they feel good, just end up being too clumsy to wield due to bad targetting where it's difficult to target what to pick up/push and where you want it to get thrown to. Light saber combat is lackluster, especially compared to the Jedi Knight series. Would recommend Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy instead for a Star Wars Jedi fix.

I've not recommended this due to the completion time and lack of replay-ability.

You play as a Sith Apprentice, you have access to different force powers and, of course, you duel wield lightsabres.

The combat is okay, you can deflect bullets back at enemies, jump really high and other cool stuff. However I found the game to be far too easy and incredibly short, about 4 or 5 hours long without even trying to speed through the content.

It's worth playing, but I would suggest to pick it up during the sale as more of a 'filler' game.

I'd give this game a Han Shot First out of 10.

This game is fun to play, plain and simple, hack and slash with force powers. My only complaint is the lack of in depth Graphics options to fix the screen tearing. Other than that, it is a great game. It is set between Starwars The Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope during the creation of the rebellion.

I wish they did the prequel movies based on this game, great story and good characters. The QTE's are a bit annoying and detract from what's going on in the epic battles, but the force powers do make you feel like a Sith/Jedi. Great to see some cannon characters show up within the game and throughout the few words you get to see.

Let's get this out of the way first: this game is an extravagantly unfinished piece of trash.

It plays and functions like a very early and rough prototype, levels are spectacularly inconsistent in both length and difficulty, sounds and music many times fail to even load [!], it is locked at 30 fps [!!] (except for a glitch during combos that momentarily unlocks the framerate [!!!]), and textures and segments of levels fail to load at random times [!!!?!] (including during cutscenes when parts of the enviroment simply pop-in after the camera has already panned to it's location). It's undeniable proof of LucasArts's state of total disarray during the generation, and it's ridiculous this game was ever deemed release-worthy.

However, I still recommend it....because I had fun with it and liked it.

The story is fantastic; containing awesome moments, excellent plot twists, great original characters and deepening existing Star Wars characters. It contains a brand new original score that is wonderful and is up to the quality of John Williams' own work, and the graphics and rendition of the Star Wars universe is breathtaking and exciting once you get past the poor coding and glitches. The DLC for the game (included here) includes an alternative version of the Star Wars trilogy that is also really well done and pure fan service for any Star Wars fan.

At the end of the game, I was left wanting for more....which is exactly what I want from any game. Go ahead and play it if you are a Star Wars fan, because you may have a blast.

A very impressive example of what the new generation of graphics and physics can produce. The force power effects are both awe inspiring and memorable for the moments when the camera zooms in on the victims of a force push or throw. In terms of gameplay, TFU is top notch and there are some really dazzling acrobatic moves. The storyline is fluid and new challenges are presented all the top, each of them more difficult than the previous one. The lightsaber combat is well defined and the use of force powers in every encounter can produce some pretty deveastating results. The extra content is well made and adds a little more excitement and flare for the dramatic.

Other than being an obvious port of a console game and having a few dumb boss fights, overall I think this game is a lot more fun than most reviewers gave it credit for. If you like slicing things up with lightsabers and shooting out force lightning (and let's be honest, who doesn't?), this game is about as good as you'll get until we get a proper sequel to Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. It does a good job of making you really feel like the overpowered badass of a Sith that you are.

Got this as part of a bundle, because I really liked the way the series that started with Dark Forces had developed.

Had a hard time getting into it at first, until I realized this time around it was a console port, and what they were trying to do with the control scheme. If you play it, and have access to a USB controller, I'd highly recommend using it. There's one section towards the end that's nigh on impossible to do with keyboard and mouse, unless you check the forums and realize that the port is treating the mouse input as analog instead of digital.

Graphics are nice, gamplay narrative flows well, and you get some decent character developement from the protagonist.

Mouse/keyboard controls are a bit clunky for pumping out those lightsbaer/force combos, but it the end it almost recaptured that Jedi Academy feel for me, with a nice storyline bridging Ep II and Ep IV of the movies.

If you're a fan of the series, I'd recommend buying it on sale, and keep the controller recommendation in mind.

I really enjoyed the storyline of this game.

Some of the controls felt clunky though (Probably the result of it being a console port)

The fixed camera cause some line of sight issues during boss fights, it caused some enviornmental objects to take up too much of the view, and made it difficult to aim.

Still, a very fun game, especially if you enjoy the Star Wars universe.

Become one with the dark side and become Darth Vader's apprentice. Great game if you are a Star Wars fan where you can wield the powers of the Sith and unleash awesome lightsaber combos. Battles and locations are awesome, however at times you will struggle with the PC controls and it becomes very frustrating during a certain section of the game. Overall it is a good game with some minor flaws in controls.

Ah yes, Star Wars the Force Unleashed...
This is an enjoyable game, a game I would recommend especially on PC. I have played it on WII, PS3, and PC and it is best on a computer. Get it on sale as it is not worth an expensive purchase...however you'll have fun with it and it'll last you a while.
