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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a terrible game. Crap story, crap characters, crappy graphics with crappy physics and a level in the middle which is such a combination of frustration and boredom that I seriously want to hunt down the entire programming team and put them to the sword.
VERY slowly.

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.

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.

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.

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.

There aren't many Star Wars games. Most of them are good. Some are legendary. This one is a gem for a Star Wars game and a fun time for every other kind of gamer. It's one of the best SW games and makes it stand is the fact that it runs even on the newest system. Have you ever wanted to be someone who unleashes his power, being devasting from the start, and being unstoppable in the end? If you like the ideea, then you should buy this game, because this ideea is executed well.
In the SW universe, you get to play as Darth Vader(only in the prologue) and Starkiller(one of the most powerful Force-users ever). The latter seeks to find his place in the galaxy hoping to find himself. It's a quest that involves a best friend droid, a gorgeous pilot, a mysterious past and a double betrayal. In the end, you get to shape your destiny, being able to chose between a light side and dark side ending. The former option will end up in the birth of the Rebellion.
Gameplay wise, you'll have fun using your power, such as pushing enemies in oblivion, getting lightning bolts everywhere, repulsing everything that's nearby, throwing your lightsaber, gripping all kinds of thins to turn them into all kinds of projectiles and covering yourself in lightinining for your own good. The thing that may ruin the fun is the targetting system which sometimes can make you consume force energy for nothing.
Graphics have aged pretty well, since the art style is strong. The numerous skins can make things look a lot more interestings.
All in all, it's a great game, it's only drawback is being short, but it's worth your money. Cleaning the floor with Sith Lords never gets old. [8.5/10]

SWTFU and no that's not STFU carries the Star Wars moniker well though the gameplay is somewhat deficient including one sequence involving incorrect on screen prompts critical for mission success and a copious amount of QTE's, though I'll admit they were entertaining and easy to execute making for splendid theatre.

The game is followed by three vignette like story containers. Numbers 2 and 3 are surprisingly good and the story elements are there as pillars to support the since accomplished primary game. The pièce de résistance of the Ultimate SIth Edition are the multitudinous Star Wars personalities, many of which you as the protagonist will go mano-a-mano with and which permeate the story throughout the primary game and the subsequent vignettes and all of which have quality visual and auditory presentations.

The emotional specturm while playing dimensions from wtf are you serious to bravo, can I get a curtain call. Despite the numerous setbacks, SWTFU proves the old adage, the show must go on and in the end entertainment conquers execution.

Pretty badass Star Wars game. Trust me, there are no Ewoks or Jar Jar Binks here. You can throw Rebel scum or anybody else around like ragdolls. It's like Devil May Cry with a Star Wars flavor.

The game serves to bridge the ~20 year gap between Episodes III and IV. The game has some flaws (capped 30 fps and some audio bugs) but it's still pretty fun. It's no KotOR or Battlefront II, but Force Unleashed is a decent game.
