I just finished this game, and it was still entertaining even though I played it well after it was released. The graphics seemed fine as well, although I'm not too picky about that. The game only took 11 hours to beat though, so just consider that you are paying for 11 hours of entertainment, and decide if the price tag is worth that to you.

I was hoping this would be like the excellent Jedi Outcast or Jedi Academy games but it is nothing like them. This is a buggy console port with clunky controls, a god awful camera, and unsatisfying combat.

The controls are bad with either keyboard/mouse or controller. General movement is much better with a mouse and the camera actually works fine with mouse, but doing combos and especially moving/throwing objects with force grip is easier with a controller (though still clunky). Force grip in this game is kind of important. There are always objects around you to grip and throw at enemies or grip enemies themselves. You also need to grip and manipulate objects to progress which is much harder to do with a mouse. Some moves and combos require you to press two buttons at the same time, one particular move requires three buttons, which are far easier to do on a controller. Also my mouse sensitivity became super high when I gripped light objects which made throwing them accurately next to impossible. So I'd recommend using a controller as it's less bad. However, with a controller that leads to the next problem...

The camera. It's the worst. It doesn't work properly with controller. It consistently fails to rotate to where you're facing when you turn. You have to manually do it yourself ALL the time. Having to rotate the camera when you're in the heat of battle is annoying. Actually, having to turn the camera anytime is annoying. I don't know why it works fine with mouse but not with controller but it's irritating as hell.

Then you get to the combat and it becomes repetitive and frustrating especially with the poor controls. Turning is more inaccurate with a controller so you'll miss your targets a lot more when using force powers. I said earlier that using force grip is easier with controller but actually focusing on the object you want to grip can be a challenge because you have to be looking right at it which is harder to do with a controller. In later levels you will constantly face off against a bunch of enemies (at the same time) that can resist your force powers, snipe you, use homing rockets, stunlock you while everyone shoots you, and it just becomes a chore. You can get knocked down with a rocket and it takes like three seconds to get back up for some stupid reason and someone else fires a rocket right as you stand and you're knocked down again. Suddenly you don't feel like such a bad azz sith anymore. There are also quicktime events when fighting stronger enemies and bosses, because timed button presses are always fun and exciting and never get old.

You can't save in the game. The game has a save button but it doesn't work. You only have checkpoints and sometimes they're poorly placed and right before a cutscene so if you die you gotta watch it again and again because the cutscenes are unskippable. Sound/voice is also missing from some levels. Even using the recommended fix doesn't solve it. I had to copy the sound files from the disc version of the game (don't ask me how I got it) and transfer it to the game's folder to actually fix it. Great job devs. Oh yea it's also locked at 30fps. You can download files to raise the fps but it causes issues with the force grip movement which is already bad enough.

The 3 bonus levels you get with the Ultimate Sith Edition (accessible after you finish the main game and start a new game) aren't anything special. It's more of the same and the storyline is completely absurd for two of the levels. Just to give you an idea, in one level you have a saber battle with Obi Wan when he's a ghost. Yea that's a thing.

This is another bad console port with underwhelming gameplay. Save yourself time and frustration and give it a pass.

I'll be fast. It's just for fans. The game by itself it is pretty boring, believe me, and I'm a Star Wars fan but the game it's just ok, not more.

It is pretty repetitve with the time and it's kind of the same throughout the whole game. The control could be so messy, and well, to finish I would say this game is just for fans, I can't recommend this game to people in general so be aware. If you're interested in the game, grab it on sale, don't buy it at full price.

game requires a radeon or geforce processor but recommends intel core.
Weird. Anyway, don't buy the game if you have intel because it'll be practically unplayable.

With that said the game is good if you're a fan of star wars. If you aren't a fan this game will be mediocre.

Star Wars always needed a hack and slash game. Force Unleashed was the game we needed, and deserved, after a 5 year hiatus from Jedi Knight. Ignoring, of course, that it has no multiplayer. That's probably a good thing, though, considering how wonky and broken saber duels were in JK2 and 3.

Sam Witwer, the dude who voiced Darth Maul in Clone Wars and also Rebels, and also Crashdown from Battlestar Galactica 2003 (and unfortunately the protagonist in the upcoming PS4 zombie game), plays Galen Marek i.e Starkiller, Vader's secret apprentice. He finds Marek in the beginning of the game and raises him as his own, then uses him to apparently infiltrate/create the rebel alliance. TFU is kind of a Sith power fantasy where you go around beating the hell out of Jedi masters, falling in love with an imperial officer, and pulling Star Destroyers out of the atmosphere with your force powers. But it's awesome.

The combat in this game is unfortunately not as complex, or at least the moveset not as large as you would hope for after gems like Ninja Gaiden or games like God of War. You get your standard Force powers - crush, push, pull, mind trick, lightning, and you get to develop those skills by putting points in to them by earning points and by finding Holocrons, which also lets you make some sort-of-combos. You also find saber crystals throughout the game which change your saber color and change what passive effect the saber has when used. Combat eventually gets boring as with all games that have combat, but on the bright side you get to toss Stormtroopers around like toys, or kill those walking trash can droids.

Graphics, considering they are from 2008, are as good as you can expect from a console game that's 8 years old at this point. The PC port doesn't appear to have been given any special attention, though - even maxing out the graphics still shows that they used the same low-res textures for most of the game.

Unfortunately, as a GFWL game, this is one of many titles that didn't get the Steamworks treatment and never will. No achievements, no workshop, none of that. It also has a fair share of technical problems and I can't even get mine to work on Windows 10 properly, not to mention it would crash at random on Windows 7 when it had nothing to do with performance.

I'm sure it's overpriced right now, so I really wouldn't recommend buying it if it's anywhere over $10.

It's entertaining to play, but it's essentially a straight port from the consoles. It's locked at 30fps, and the controls aren't very customisable (also not very mouse/keyboard friendly). The story is ok, but kind of contradicts otherwise official canon for the series.

If you're a diehard Star Wars fan, like I am, you may enjoy it (admittedly, I enjoyed it much more on console). Otherwise, I can't really suggest picking this up on PC - especially not for full price. Go find it used for Xbox 360 for $2 online somewhere instead if you really want to play it. Pick up Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy over this. Overall a much better game with a more fitting story, better controls, and better gameplay.

I played this game on PS2 when I was a kid. Man, the game still awesome. All those powers, combo and QTE. And that storyline: Oh, man! Yeah, this is a game you must play if you are a Star Wars fan. There are some problems with the controls. I'll give this game: 9/10.

This is such an interesting take on the story of the Rebellion and the Empire. I truly recommend this game, for it has great characters, a great story and an awesome range of locations and fights. You'll love the many, many ways to use the Force to your advantage. There are so many abilities, attacks and combinations, it's ridiculous. Along with the high degree of customization this game offers when it comes to lightsabers, costumes and Force powers, I can definitely this is one of the games I've enjoyed most throughout the years.

Glad I bought this edition to replay it after a years-long break.
10/10 from a Star Wars fan.

In this game you play as Starkiller/Galen Marek using the force to it's own limits. In the game it feels like you have full ccontrol of the force even bringing down a stardestroyer . this game might not have the best story of all but it's amazing gameplay makes up for it's glitches and story. The game is overall awesome with all the skills you can use and i liked the fact that you could become Darth vader's replacement amd the dlc levels too. overall 8/10

Finally got around to finishing this. In sections it was really quite fun but some janky controls and awful cameras during boss fights made it a bit more frustrating than it needed to be. Definitely gave the feeling of being an unstoppable force on the battlefield. Audio was really good from the iconic sounds to the humorous radio chatter from the stormtroopers.

i really do like this game, however this port has ALOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! of teachnical errors. Aspyr, the company who ported the game to PC, didn't do that great of a job however, while they were kinda distracting at times, the game never crashed on me, which was very good. But the ONE F@#$ing thing that just ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me off. The part where you bring down the Stardestroyer. I just can't do it. I had this game on the PS3 and I maneged to beat it. But the PC I just... CAN'T. But besides that I would recommend it, again the teachnical problems are just weird camera angels and missing audio (dialog and sound affects) but the dialog is so cringey I don't mind that very much. I give the game an 8.9/10. However this PC port gets a 7.2/10 becuase it's still my second favorite Star Wars game of all time, however they're still many teachnical problems.

Just an OK game, get it if it's cheap. The gameplay was fairy repetitive and unengaging, and the storyline was either predictable or not quite believable.
