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.

As a Star Wars fans,I feel terrible to write a not-recommend review for this one. Yes, Hack & Slash were hype back in 2009, but this one didn't deliver what people wants from Star Wars.
I mean, c'mon man, Do you know what people love from Star Wars? It's the story, and this one is crap due to that.
The story so linear and following a scripted line even Dynasty Warrior have better story than this.

And please, don't let me mention about the bad port to PC. It's really a disgrace for us, PC gamers.
capped at 30 fps, ♥♥♥♥ing 30gigs in size but jagged texture and bad character models.
Compared to the game released that year;take a peek on Prototype; It's just a letdown..

No, buy this at your console PS3 or Wii, or don't buy it at all, you'll not regret it tho.
6/10 SWTFU : Loading Simulator.



edit (after finishing the whole story)
- It's still a no, but not a big no, it's just.. the story is great but it's so so compared even to SW animation series. It's like there's a big hole in the story.. if you finished you'll be getting what I mean, if you're not bored to death beforehand.

- The idea of "finishing blow" is good, but it's just become a standar QTE because it's so repetitive and have a little variation. And for the big boss it's just a single variation for finishing blow.

- We like lightsabers, we love to have all colorful gems and crystal in it. but.. can we have another type instead the standart like the one in the movie ep 4-6...
hey but, if I can use a short-bladed lightsaber, or a longer one lightsaber, or! the one like a police baton just like one of the boss in game. I would be so happy.



TL;DR
9 hours to complete, if you think you have a 9hours spare lifetime to see a so so story of Star Wars, you can give it a shot.

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.

Great graphics, great story line, untill...

They messed up when it goes from fighting to having to do scinimatic buttons as the thing is basically dead. And if you don't do it right, or fast enough, it auto heals, and you have to bring it's health back down again.
I am killing it, so don't have time to even see what the button is and a big red X covers it. End of game.

I realize this game is kind of old now but I really have to say, THIS IS A HORRIBLE GAME! The lack of control while in combat is atrocious. I can't aim and even when surrounded by enemies, frequently attacks will "miss" even if force attacks like lightning are literally surrounding them. Since you aren't totally in control of aiming, targeting objects and enemies can be rather ineffective and ruins the whole purpose of having awesome force powers. There is a loading screen every time you view an option or abilities screen, and when you go back even if you aren't changing anything. Also if you are in the middle of an attack or if your enemy in attacking you or you are getting up from being knocked down and also sometimes while in the air, control is taken from you and you can't move or attack. This leaves you open to getting killed quickly even from full health in a few seconds. Example: You get knocked down and as you get up, you can't move, before control is given back to you allowing you to dodge, you are knocked down again, and again until you are dead and you have no chance to move or defend yourself, and if you do, the attack might miss or go through your enemy anyways and you get knocked down. I don't even feel like I am even playing most of the time. And the there are the issues of poorly programed platforms you are supposed to stand on and the game decides your character can't stand on the bridge you need to use to go forwards and you slide of to your death making you have to do the whole area again. This is such an insanely awful game. The story isn't even all that great, in my opinion, either and I love Star Wars. The second game was much better, I finished that one. The story still kinda sucked though and some of the voice acting is not that great, especially general kota. It will sound like he is asking a question when making a statement. I am glad this came in a bundle of other games I much enjoy or I would be upset I paid for this.

It's pretty, given that it's getting on in years. And the story seems like it has potential.

But that control system. Yikes. Both on a controller and via keyboard and mouse, this is barely playable. The boss fights are tedious and every now and again you'll get locked in a confined space with a huge creature that requries very specific and precise actions. Which you will fail to pull off because of that control system.

Avoid this one.

This game has everything a good hack and slash game should have, exept production quality.

I'd recommend this game for Star Wars fans, but everyone else can skip it. It has great potential, but the game is simply very bad quality: bad graphics, bad irresponsive controls, horrible movement which kills platformer fun (sometimes your character simply does not want to go straight even when there's no obstacles), stupid AI, opponents who doesn't respond to your hits and break your combos like you're some kind of puppet not a powerful unstoppable Starkiller. The gameplay is fun, game has good story, lore, lots of playable charatcers from Star Wars Saga etc..., but the quality of the game kills it completely.

The visual quality is downright garbage, the game is almost impossible to play at points, because of the background blurring into the rest of the screen making it a literal mess. A tie fighter crossed my screen and left a dozen ghost images across my screen that only disappeared when i went indoors. When I cam back outdoors another tie fighter flew by and same issue. This game is great on any other platform. I don't recommend buying this for your computer.

Thank you for ♥♥♥♥ing me over once again Steam, ripping console games and just slapping them onto PC is getting old now. The ♥♥♥♥ty graphics and the sea of bugs this game is showing me is making me unable to finish.

Go play this on a console, PC version is just ♥♥♥♥.

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.
