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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is an action adventure game releasing initially on PS2, PS3, Wii, Xbox360, iOS, Nintendo DS, PSP and who could forget, the N-Gage. The Ultimate Sith edition of the game finally released on PC and Mac OS in November 2009. The plot in The Forced Unleashed is between the first two trilogies of Star Wars films, but acts as an original story. You play the role of Darth Vadar’s apprentice, as you are tasked with hunting down Jedi – but you slowly become part of the Light side as things do not go as planned.

The game play is very hack and slash style, with the good old classic lightsaber action and with a drop of force action too, the combat is very exciting and pack with all sorts of fancy attacks and duels. Part of your force powers includes the use of electric shocking your enemies too; this can be extremely pleasing to do on large groups of Stormtroopers. The combo system with the lightsabre is easy to get a grip of, and you can soon be showing off some crazy attacks, that look simply awesome. The game does have quite a lot of QTE’s throughout, these normally occur at the end of a regular fight, allowing a more cinematic dramatic end to a fight, normally I am not a fan of QTEs, but these are done in a way which allow you to enjoy what is happening on the screen whilst also testing your speed and awareness of what is going on.

This game is old now, having released almost six years ago, the graphics are becoming to look a bit dated, but that’s not to say it is a bad looking game at all. It is certainly not up to the standards we are used to now, but if you stick this on 1080p, you can still get some really nice looking scenes. The animation of all the characters are done brilliantly, and all of the levels look fleshed out with some really cool looking backdrops.

Plot wise, this has got to be one of my favourite Star Wars games. I really enjoyed playing as the Dark side for once in this type of game, but you can’t stay as the Dark side, as events unfold, you soon start becoming part of the Jedi’s and working to over throw the Emperor. It will really get you in the mood for watching the film series again.

This isn’t a very difficult game; the only times I died were due to errors in the platforming side of the game and I ended up falling off the edge of the world. The difficulty can be ramped up, so playing on hard mode may be the way forward to get more of a challenge. The end boss fights pose a little bit of a challenge, but nothing that you can’t really overcome. I’m looking at you, Star Destroyer boss!

Even though the game is very linear, the levels are all of a decent size, and have multiple paths to the end. With plenty of hidden items for you to collect as you go, you’ll be jumping and fighting your way through plenty of enemies to find them. I was a little disappointed to see that a couple of the levels were essentially the same map, just done in a different order so to speak, just seemed a little lazy on that part.
The game is also on the short side, having completed the game in just less than four hours on a normal difficulty. There is little reason to play it through for a second time unless you are trying the harder modes.

I had a couple of technical problems whilst playing. I did go into the game expecting there to be some given the age of the game. The first issue I had was, even when selecting 1080p, the game still doesn’t play in a full screen, you get black bars down the side of your game, which are very annoying. Secondly, the game is capped at 30fps – I can only assume that is because it is a port of the PS3 game. Thirdly, the sound on some levels just cuts out for no apparent reason, this has been reported as a common bug on the game, and a simple reload will fix it, so just an annoyance really. I did also encounter a couple of random crashes which resulted in me losing a bit of progress – again I expected these due to the age of the title but would be nice if a patch could be released to fix the problems.

To sum up, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is a pretty good action game. The game play is really good, and the plot alone all deserves your time and attention. The only thing that really lets it down is the length of the game. I would only say it is worth half of the £14, 99 price tag for that reason alone. Due to the premium name of the game though it won’t go on sale very often so keep your eyes peeled.

Tom's Score Card
1) Stay away
2) Not Recommended
3) Only recommended when on sale
4) Recommended
5) Highly recommended
6) This is a must play
