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.

Even if you're not a Star Wars fan, this game is a lot of fun. I've played it through at least three times and it doesn't get boring. Highly recommended.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is an action-adventure, hack'n'slash roller coaster of Sith Awesome Sauce. You play as Starkiller, the 'secret apprentice' of Darth Vader. Though you are initially tasked with hunting down Jedi Survivors, your quest quickly changes after you make some friends, enemies, and are put through extreme measures. It is honestly one of the best stories featured in a Star Wars game, and the story accounts for so much of the momentum while playing (I should note that as with all other star wars games, the story is considered non-canon in the universe, which I personally don't mind).

The gameplay is a bit cumbersome at first, but once you've gotten used to it, the lightsaber and force combat is extremely addicting and fun. After sometime, you'll start making heavy use of combos, combining force lightning with lightsaber attacks, or force push with force dash, etc. There's tons of combos to be pulled off, all visually satisfying and very useful when taking down enemies. The AI is overall intelligent, apart from some enemy types with very basic reactions to the player, but that's easily excused by the wide variety of enemy types.

The game spans 10 levels, taking about 45 Minutes (give or take) for each, so the game ends up being really short. Each level is filled with hidden Holocrons, giving timed buffs or unlockables, such as lightsaber crystals or upgrade points. A boss battle usually concludes each level, mostly being unique and very challenging. You'll face down Rancors, Sith Assassins, Imperial Walkers, the list goes on. It always gives you something to look forward to at the end.

It's worth mentioning that this is definitely a console port, as the framerate is locked and there's little to no optimization settings or menus. The game overall looks and runs decent, apart from sound issues on very rare occassion. If you play on a potato, I'm sure you'll be fine.

Overall, The Force Unleashed is a worthy game for any Star Wars fan, and double for a fan of Sith characters. The Ultimate Sith Edition just adds 3 bonus levels as an epilogue to the game's alternate ending, but they're nice additions. Despite being incredibly short, the game offers a lot of replay value with the combat system, collectibles, and harder difficulties.

7/10 - Great Deal if discounted (which happens very rarely for this title apparently, so your money, your problem. gg no refunds)

This is a long review, so if you want a brief summary of why I recommend Forced Unleashed skip to Results and read from there.

LucasArts offers a game that brings the force to modern-day systems; although, riddles with pitfalls in the design the Force Unleashed is still a fun and dynamic play-through.

Story:
You play a young Sith warrior who was taken under Darth Vaders’ wing to become his apprentice. You sole purpose in life is to become a powerful Sith warrior and join Vader to take down the Emperor and control the galaxy. Yet, not everything is how it seems and as you are sent from planet to planet to slay the remaining Jedi a whole new tale unfolds.

Campaign:
The campaign offers a decent length - depending on how you play it can take anywhere from five (5) to eight (8) hours. The story is divided up into approximately nine missions, which take you through a large variety of different environments. As you progress through the campaign you unlock new force powers, which change how you defeat your enemies. Each level has hidden Holocrons spread throughout it which offer you more experience, skill points, or customizable features. The enemies tend to repeat themselves fairly quickly and the combat dynamics become repetitive, but the bosses offer a nice twist which keeps you wanting more. Each boss fights differently, which causes you to constantly change up your strategy.

Gameplay:
The main issue with this game is the poor design. Firstly the camera controls are awful, there are more times where you are fighting the camera than fighting enemies. Trying to grab objects with the force can be rather cumbersome and I noticed that I never really grabbed anything because the time it took to get the object to move in the correct direction would cause me to take tremendous damage from surrounding enemies. Another major issue was being pinned by enemies, who would knock you over suddenly turning you into an elderly person who required a warm up before being able to stand up.

Hints:
>Don’t play on the hardest difficulty (Sith Master) as the bosses scale poorly - the particularly Kazdan Paratus who was damn near impossible to defeat especially when fighting against the poor game mechanics.
>Make sure to search the maps for the Holocrons they help you level up much quicker and afford you with more force powers.
>Remember to go in and look at your lightsaber, as you play through the campaign you unlock lightsaver powers which help boost your lightsaber. This can be really useful to change based on the mission you are playing.


Results:
All and all if you’re a Star Wars fan this is a game for you - if not them you probably find the listed cons to ruin the game. I personally like the Star Wars series and found this to be a good addition to the story even though some parts were cheesy. The game offers a decent sized campaign and a relatively fun experience.

Pros:
+Customized level structure which allows you to choose how you want your character to grow.
+Lots of combos, which can make fighting incredibly dynamic.
+Control over many aspects of the environment, which you can wield in battle to your advantage.
+Awesome boss fights, which force you to change your play style.
+Beautiful level design with many different environments.
+Nice addition to the Star Wars saga, and great new story elements.
+Prologue was just awesome, walking around as Vader and destroying everything.

Cons:
-Not readily made for Keyboard and Mouse gameplay.
-Poor game design – difficult camera control, poor force power control, off targeting system.
-Limited to no description of objectives, can leave you standing around wondering what you’re supposed to do. I found myself shocking things with lighting, before realizing I had to grab them or slash it with a lightsaber.
-Repetitive enemies, typically finding myself fighting the same thing over and over. This wouldn’t be bad, but some of them were more annoying than difficult to kill.
-Limited game customization, there was no ability to control graphics levels. Resolution was controlled before starting the game.

I always loved playing this game - the action is fun, the story (although no-longer canon) is great, and the performances, particularly of the main character are fantastic. But the PC port starkly displays the unintuitive design choices and technical shortcomings of the game.

The character models are alright, but the environmental textures look terrible, and the loading screens in between menus are unforgivably annoying.

Other than that though, the game IS fun to play on PC, finding the upgrade holocrons is enjoyable, the music is (of course) fantastic, the keyboard controls work surprisingly well, and the sheer amount of destruction you can cause with you force powers is excellent!

It's not a ground-breaking game by any standards, but it is a fun hack-and-slasher with a great story. It's just a shame that the utter lack of effort put into porting the game - right down to the lack of graphics options, or even an in-game keyboard controls menu - makes it a sometimes-bumpy ride.

Get it cheap.

-Disclaimer-
Hey, Hey you... Yes you, the person who's about to thumbs down my review. Did you notice that I actually LIKE the game? Just because I didn't recommend the game didn't mean I didn't enjoy it.
This game fell right between the lines of "recommend" and "not recommend" and that's a sign to me that most people probably would rather play something else. You're welcome to disagree with me, but at least comment to tell me why.

-Quick Review-
Ever want to blast people with "UNLIMITED POWER"? Like the idea of picking up stormtroopers and throwing them into the abyss? Have you ever wanted to try mixing lightsaber moves with various force techniques?
...Then this... ....MIGHT... ...be the game for you?

-Detailed breakdown review-
Story: you play as Starkiller, Darth Vaders Secret apprentice. Star killers been put into a twisting story of nearly constant betrayal, being a spy and agent for Lord Vader tends to have that effect on you.
Starkiller's soul purpose is to hunt down the enemies of the empire and bring them to justice, Starkiller learns various force and lightsaber techniques to assist him in his hunt. The story takes place after the clone wars, but before the first Death Star is fully constructed.
You can play through the story in maybe 6-12 hours, depending on how much extra collecting you do and difficulty you play on. The game also does the cheap fork-story-ending, so you need to go back and make your choice over again, if you want to see both endings.

Game Play: This is where the game hurts... sometimes literally.
this game was designed to be played with a controller, but even with a controller the game is a mess, the camera is tricky, targeting is terrible, you need to spend a majority of the first few levels learning simply how to pick up the correct object (since it's linked to which way Starkiller is facing, INSTEAD OF MY CAMERA. Sheesh)
To be quite blunt and fair, the controls of this game are a very good reason for people to steer clear and spend their money on a game they might actually enjoy playing. However this game did have great potential, and brought a lot of great concepts, but it definitely needed more work before it was released.

To talk really briefly about the various attacks, you have force lightning, force push, lightsaber attack, and block. There are various combinations of these four to make up your combat type in the game. The game seems to prefer you supplement your lightsaber strikes with force moves, instead of going full blown Master Yoda mode.

There is one final thing to say about the Game Play... Screw Quick Time events. They don't NEED to be bad, but they are in this game. You'll also have them memorized; it gets repetitious fast.

Achievements: There were achievements on the Xbox version, there might be achievements some time but as of now there are none (03/19/15). We should probably count ourselves lucky. However, the accomplishments, unlockables and extra's are still in the game so you still can obtain them, if you so desire.

Price I purchased The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition from a humble bundle, so naturally I suggest waiting for sales before purchasing. The standard price for The Force Unleashed on steam is $19.99. Not a fair price, in my opinion. I will be squeezing out more hours of the game doing the extra content.

Conclusion: I don't know that I can really recommend this game for anyone who ISN'T already a star wars fan, if you knew nothing of the franchise, or just simply didn't care one way or another, this game is a skip for you.
If you happen to consider yourself the avid Star Wars nerd/fan you'll probably be able to overlook the games follies and enjoy watching/playing/listening to the story of Starkiller.

This game is weird. Everything the game does should make we not recommend the game. But I still do.

Here is why...

Right out the gate your going to see simple textures, bad pop in and a 30fps framerate. Funny thing is the game still felt and looked smooth. Not to mention the semi-destrucible environments are a huge pro. I love throwing people into statues and watching them brake apart or forcing pushing them up in the air, throwing my sabre into his chest and throwing him into a tree. Feels great. The camera is a bit of a ♥♥♥♥♥ and controls are a tad clunky but it did not annoy me. Bosses are challenging, sometimes cheap wont name any names but you will know dont worry, and to beat a boss results in an unfailable qte. I hate qte but it still was great as it felt like you kicked the living ♥♥♥♥ out of a boss and that was your reward to see your character look like a badass. Its also very repetive but it did not feel that way even though you were doing the same thing again and again.

The story is actually quite intresting and decent. Fits in right between episode 3 and 4 and to be honest should be made into a movie. I love proxy and his relationship with the protagnist was unique. All the powers and combos vary up combat making you into a badass. The costume selection is ♥♥♥♥ing amazing. I count like 40+ unique outfits being different variations of the protagnist or different characters in the star wars lore. The three missions outside of the main story are nice what if spin off missions and are quite good but familiar to main story. Some glitches only one was game stopping and one crash.

Overall a game thats weird but I really enjoyed desipte bad cons which would break other games. Maybe its due to that I a star wars fan XD

I have been waiting to get this game. To my disapointment after being such an old game it still experiences some lag in some areas, freezes and all out crashes on occasions. They are typically unexpected, but they happen. When the game is running its very enjoyable

So much wrong here.

The controls feel like you’re spinning round an action figure rather than somebody with any weight. You find yourself being constantly being thrown around like a ragdoll and most of my deaths seemed to come from being shunted off a platform, resulting in a frustrating return to the last checkpoint.

Actually the platforming in general is just annoying. The game sticks to the Star Wars universe’s famous lack of health and safety regulations, so any false step will send you plummeting down a chasm. The camera is less than helpful here and there’s an obscene number of invisible walls placed seemingly at random (jumping towards a bridge, hitting an invisible wall mid-air and sliding down into the mouth of Sarlacc was a particularly ignoble end).

The story is nonsense with a painfully bland protagonist. You are meant to be uber powerful but even your force powers are unsatisfying to use, when using force grip it feels like you are wobbling an object in to place rather than showing any mastery. The only time you actually do something impressing is in the numerous quick time sequences with pop up to disrupt any sort of flow in the game.

Oh and that Star Destroyer sequence from the trailer.. it’s one of the most of the most painfully terrible bits of gameplay I’ve experienced.

I just came back to this game after a year's hiatus and got an abrupt reminder of why I stopped playing it in the first place. I just about had an aneurysm out of sheer rage while trying to finish a level I gave up on before. Lemme put things in a list.

Story: Well, it's not terrible. I've seen worse writing plenty of times. It just isn't very grabbing to me. Don't take my opinion on this, though; I've never put much thought into the backstory of the Star Wars franchise.

World Design/Graphics: About what I expected. Looks like a Star Wars game. Some of the expressions and character models look like they were made in Garry's Mod, but it's bearable.

Physics: RUN. RUN FAR AWAY. The physics engine in this game is just god-awful. Platforming is a pain; accurately judging a jump is like trying to throw a ball whose density is constantly fluctuating. Some of the terrain is horridly rough, with smooth ground being un-walkable in random spots. Of course, none of this helps while fighting. And speaking of that...

Combat: The control scheme for fighting isn't too bad. Basic combat maneuvers, such as jumping, slashing, lighting, and dodging are all on natural-feeling buttons. The AI, however, is an absolute NIGHTMARE. Enemies will constantly gang up on you, slapping you around like a pinball in combos that are infuriatingly hard to get out of: blocking and dashing while being hit are impossible. And when the guys right next to you aren't hitting you, the ones halfway across the map are picking you off with impossibly accurate potshots that must be either swatted away by the auto-deflect feature (which has about a 2% success rate) or deflected manually by holding the block button, meaning you can't do ANYTHING ELSE. Which leads to you getting beat over the skull by all those guys right next to you. Crowd control is unlocked about halfway through the game, and DUMPS your force energy gauge. No spamming the "Get away from me!" button.


My reccommendation: Steer clear of this game. It's not worth the pain and suffering.

The way this game controls, the janky physics, lack of explaination for how to do things and ludicrous AI makes me wish for the sweet embrace of death, as I fall off a cliff for the 13th time, and am sent back to a checkpoint before some cinematic intro, only to then be pushed off a cliff again while I try and figure out what the hell I'm meant to be doing.

Disclaimer: I am a massive Star Wars fan so I may be biased
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is not a polished game by any means. The framerate is locked at 30 FPS (although there is an unlocker which I strongly reccomend) and there are numerous texture issues such as pop-in and flickering. The keyboard controls aren't great either (I used a 360 controller). However these issues aside, the game is damn fun. You have multiple different force powers and tons of combos you can pull off as well. The story so far is fantastic and the characters have genuine feeling and it is very noticeable that the voice actors Lucasarts have hired are seasoned veterans in the voice acting industry. I would recommend this only to Star Wars fans or hardcore hack and slash fans and only those that own a controller, as that really is how this game is meant to be played.

Star Wars The Force Unleashed is set between prequals and the original trilogy. Story was very interesting, telling about Darth Vader secret apprentice Starkiller and creation of the rebellion.
Gameplay is very fun. You can toss pretty much every enemy in the air, electrocute them and then toss them back at their allies, push them out of the edge with Force push or just slice them up with lightsaber. While gameplay is good, boss batles are not. Bosses are super overpowered, camera angle is very stupid and I wish Starkiller would have the same Force push as Kazdan Paratus. So the game is pretty much fun, fun, fun, stupid boss batle,repeat.
Music is good, but there was a bug in middle of the game where it stoped, and all you could hear was your lighsaber. Also cutscenes were always louder whan gameplay music. It was pretty annoying sometimes.
There are some enemies who can block your attack( except bosses, they block everything), but they all are vulnerable to lighting, could have been a little variety.
Overall, Star Wars The Force Unleashed is a average game, having good and bad aspects. Ultimate Sith edition gives extra missions, telling alternative story if Starkiller choose dark side ending of the game, which is prety nice.

I played this game a really long time ago when it first came back, and when i got it again on steam i was extremely excited to play it again!
Although it being hard at some points it was overall a really enjoyable experience with a suprisingly good story

BE WARNED: there is a glitch in the pc version where most of the SFX stops working during a certain legnth of the game.
(I think it happend for me on the begining of the second last level and fixed itself about half way through the last level)

All in All i love this game, the gameplay is fun and story enjoyable.
And for me it was pure nostalgia :D

*Review note, I have played through the entire game on Xbox 360. This is about the PC version*

Subpar graphics, awful video options menu (Brightness, contrast and Gamma), you'd expect a developer with at least ten to fifteen years experience on the PC would make a better PC version. It feels like it was developed by howler monkeys, with no hands and typewriters.

Also: pressing start to skip a cutscene minimises the game and returns to your Desktop and upon opening causes a multitude of bugs including text crawls being buggy as-well as varying audio and graphical glitches.

In light Force Unleased as a game it's OK. Nothing really special, has a nice physics engine. (Which Lucasarts spent heavy time marketing it) but aside from that. Character animations are meh, animations are stiff and robotic, etc,etc.

I do like the extra content such as the added campaigns though.

However, as a PC gamer. I can't recommend this ever. It's one for if you own a console.

Having just finished the game after ~10 hours of play, the game is short but enjoyable if you can manage to ignore some of the bad game design and the console port problems. I got the game as part of the Humble Bundle (cheap!) but I wouldn't buy it for full price.

+Pros:
+Enjoyable hack n slash
+Fun Force abilities
+Lots of different combos
+Some impressive visuals

-Cons:
-Control scheme is ported from console version
-Graphics are capped at 30fps and non customizable.
-Game is a little bit short
-All levels follow a linear path with cutscenes like a interactive movie.
-Boss levels sometimes don't make much sense

As you can see, this game is average at best but if you are a Star Wars fan such as myself then you will enjoy it anyway.
Right now I am looking forward to uninstall this game and install the sequel, Force Unleashed II, to get some more lightsaber and lightning fun!
