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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ever wanted to beat up an old man with psychic powers while you plummet through the atmosphere of a small planet on a collapsed observation deck? Ever wanted to slice the equivalent of a space-tank in half with a glowing lazer sword? Ever wanted to electrecute a jawa... WITH YOUR MIND?
if yes = get this
if no = what the hell is wrong with you?

So here's the thing, is the game bad? No, far from it. Is it the best Star Wars game out there? No, go play Knights of the Old Republic you fool.

The game is based between episodes 3 and 4 of the Star Wars movies. The story, if you pay attention actually is well-explained and well-placed in the 20-ish year gap between the two. It explains how the Rebel Alliance came to be and all that good stuff (if you pay close attention you'll even see where the symbol for the rebels came from), and wraps itself up in the end nicely as well, but this is just story-wise. Are there a few plot holes, probably, but the force is the ultimate way to explain them, right?

Anyway the game isn't bad, it takes about 6-8 hours to beat and it is super fun to blast everything to death with Force Lightning.

Outside of that, if you are a Star Wars fan, you'll probably like the game, if not, I'd try KotOR first then see how you feel. They aren't the same type of game but if you aren't a Star Wars fan and don't find yourself liking Knights of the Old Republic, then don't bother with this game.

One last thing, as a warning, and I will leave this with MINIMUM spoilers. Towards the latter part of the game you end up taking on a Star Destroyer with the force, it took me 3 sequences of manipulating it with the sticks. The third time, it tells you to bring the right stick down and stays red, it is supposed to turn yellowish/green when you are in the correct position (when you get there you'll see what I mean) just keep holding that stick up. It is a bug and I can't believe they didn't fix it, but you'll thank me later when you waste an hour going "WTF WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO"

I first played this on the 360 before getting it on Steam and I've pretty much done everything on it so here's an overview.

You're name is Starkiller and you're Darth Vader's secret apprentice, oooh exciting stuff.

You go out doing his bidding which involves hunting down the remaning Jedi hidden across the galaxy and other missions without ruining the plot.

You're armed with your trusty lightsaber and forcepowers which can be upgraded as you progress through the game.
Lightsaber colour, beam, force strength, force lightning strength etc. Some of the lightsaber crystals have their own perks you can chose from, faster force regain, more health etc.

You also unlock costumes, so you can look like a true Jedi or a sith warrior, your choice.

In terms of combat, you again unlock combo moves which are handy as you encouter difficult enemies later in the game.
Or just throw a Stormtroopers at each other, or a tie fighter, force push them into oblivion, slam them against a wall until they black out, you decide.

But my main gripe with the combat is the fact that your lightsaber seems to be made out of plastic, I mean seriously, you can hack away at a Stormtrooper relentlessly and he'll still be in tact. Makes no sense to me considering in the movies everyone decides they don't want their hands anymore when they hold a lightsaber.

You may think it's minor, but it puts me on the verge of tears. I want to slice their heads off, cut them in two, send more hands everywhere while I announce I am their father. Weird thing is you can impale them with your lightsaber, but not cut them up.

What I also will say is that, once you complete the game you will be hit with a severe lack of replayabilty. I guess it depends if you really love the game.

The Steam version from what I can tell from has none of the achievements on, so you can do the harder difficulties for some nice costumes but that's it. No virtual achievement to show that you're a virtual badass on a videogame, making me tear up again.


Well that's my opinion on the game, oh and for the record, don't get the second game it's abysmal compared to this one.

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.
