Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is a third-person fighting game from LucasArts. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is a sequel to the first game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II has quite similar but enhanced gameplay from the previous game, yet I think its kinda simplified a bit too. Still good, you get to use the lightsaber and swing it on stormtroopers or AT-ST. But the whole story, the chapter is too short and I think it's somewhat repetitive. Using the same key combo to finish AT-ST and their kind, the boss fight, it's kinda boring. The challenge is not a good addition too for me. It's good to swing lightsaber on many stormtroopers, using force lightning and all, but the repetitive level kinda ruin it all.

The graphics of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is good, great in fact, if only the gameplay are that good too. The frame rate are good, no lags so smooth and the textures are beautiful. But the game is not stable as sometimes the game like to crash to desktop, especially on newer operating system. But the compatibility mode should help.

Overall, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is an average sequel, not bad but not that good too. The story is good, but too short. I recommend this if you're Star Wars fan like me.

Rating 6/10

Good game overall. It's also fun to play whenever you're bored out of your mind.

Buy this game when its on a sale or special offer. I played SW:FU 1 and it toke my quite a while to completing it on highest lvl. This game however... It toke me and a friend a 3-4 hours of hours and i we were almost mad that the game was that short in story line. I mean Super Mario gives you more story line movement.

Do it for the fact you are a powerfull Jedi and the graphics - but dont expect to give in deep into this one.

I am a huge star wars fan and I loved the first Force Unleashed.
PROS
-The game has some of the most beautiful weather cycles and graphics shading I have ever seen.
-The fighting animations are awesome and the new lightsabre physics (cutting arms of stormtroopers) make a nice new addition.
-The stormtroopers are so weak... but it's fun to muck around with them.

BADS
-Similarly to most reviews, I have to say the campaign game time is horrendous. I have finished the game 2 times, and my steam time says 6 hours.
-The gameplay is incredibly repetitive (like the first one), however, since the story is nowhere near as engaging as the first one, the gameplay is even worse as you feel there is no inscentive to see the outcome of the level.
-As I said, the story is completely irrelevant to the star wars universe. As a true-fan, no matter what I love every star wars game (especially Jedi Knight series), but this one didn't do it for me.
-There is no variation in enemies... ever!

Overall 5/10. Not recommended unless you can pick this game up for under 10 bucks.
This is a game where the graphics are incredible, but the story and gameplay drown beneath it.

I.. I don't know what to say about this. It's a fun hack n' slash game, and like any other hack n' slash game, it's become too repetitive and boring in no time.

and the one thing that bothering me so much and I'll just spit it out here. THE WHOLE ♥♥♥♥ING STORY IS SO BAD, it makes me want to cry knowing that Star Wars franchise having such a strong story even with the cartoon and comic one.
The whole story is about you, the main character a.k.a Starkiller, saving the Juno from Boba Fett that kidnapping her.
THAT'S IT, IT'S ONLY ABOUT THAT. you just chasing Boba Fett all over the place until you meet Darth Vader and (not even) finish him.

--Please don't forget about how Luke Skywalker saving Leia in short amount of time and saving the Galaxy and destroy the Empire. Killing both Boba Fett and Darth Vader, with added Darth Sidious. Such an achievement.--

what.the.♥♥♥♥.

I'm crying in every cutscene in this game. The voice acting is subpar, the character is so minimum. It's just you, PROXY, General Kota, sometimes Darth Vader, Juno kidnapped with Boba Fett, and Yoda in Dagobah that just a filler for this game with popular character.

There's only 3 main stages with only 3 bosses.
the first one is, well good enough and makes some good impression. Especially the falling scene.
the second boss, well, easy as ♥♥♥♥.
guess who's the final boss? please do comment here.




You can clear the whole main story in 6 ♥♥♥♥ing hours, even less if you skip all cutscene.
TL;DR
If you have 6 hours of life to spare on this, well, my personal sugestion is to spend 6 hours to get you some Starbuck and movie ticket to Star Wars ep.7 with the money instead of buying this.

Please read:

Though I love the game series, and The Force Unleashed II is great, the PC version has had too many problems for me to recommend.

Plain and simple if you are good at these sort of games just play it in hard or unleashed mode. Everything that you could have improved of the first game was done to this one. Does not have any graphic issues. However, it does like to crash- BUT it saves it when it does. This is NOT an issue. If you think games should not crash stop buying games that cost 1$ or less and buy games that matter like this to fund the QA time. Old games from the 90s golden era crashed and had tons of bugs. It was fun for us back then to see if we could find the holes in the games. Stuff like COD has bugs.

Plain and simple this is a great game and anyone who says otherwise is flat out too new of a gamer or should just go play the wii fit or flappy bird. People who complain about the story talk about Star War canon. This is an alternate universe- which they flat out state about the game. Also, the only TRUE star wars canon is the 6 movies made. Everything else is bs, and anyone who says otherwise is flat out ignorant.

Play the game, because there is no other one out there that has mechanics like this. I have looked for 4 months to find mechanics like this. I am finally writing a review after doing everything in the game that you can.

After 30 minutes, the game had amassed enough disappointment for me to just throw it away again. I've played the first Unleashed part on Wii, which was... acceptable. But this one is outright worse. And let's not even start comparing it to the Jedi Knight (which show that a Jedi game on PC is very well doable).

Anyways, this is just a bried and probably uninformed review, but I would still say this is definitely not worth any money, in my eyes.

Total crap, a felt stupid for buying this game at full price (I think). Biggest waste of twenty dollars probably ever. It was extremly repetitive, the fight mechanics made no sense (who holds a weapon like that), and the story was just plain stupid (force clone things, what the hell?). However, the worst part by far was that the entire game was less than nine hours long. If you buy this game for more than five dollars, you are being ripped off and will regret it for the rest of your life.

Only took me 5 hours to beat but the extremely repetative gameplay made it feel much longer, in a bad way. In boss fights you have to do the exact same thing twice or more, the same dialouge keeps repeating. I also hated the storyline.

I've not recommended this game due to the completion time and the lack of replay-ability.

If you're looking at this game, you've probably played the first one. If not, play the first one. Be warned that it only took me 5 hours to complete the first one and 4 hours to complete this one.

You carry on your journey as the Sith Apprentice. It's so similar to the first game that they may aswell have merged the two together, at least it would have reached a decent completion time.

You're overpowered as hell, pump up the points in force lightning and you're good to go. The thing didn't die? Hit it with your lightsabres, it will die long before you do.

The boss battles in this one were a little more difficult, however that isn't saying much. It's good for a 'filler' game, worth picking up if it's on sale and you have nothing better to play.


All in all, I'd give this game a Jawa out of 10.

Brought it because I played the first and wanted to see how the story would continue, devs learned nothing from the mistakes they made in the original.

Only buy on sale if you somewhat enjoyed the orginal and are a fan of Star Wars in general, even then don't expect anything memorable.

This Game is absolutely amazing! Good graphics, controls, enviroment. The only downside is, they tell you how to do this every time you get to a certain place!

Awesome graphics, lightsabers, force powers. Great game, though is way too short. There's a whole universe of Star Wars related locations, too bad this game seems to keep you restricted to just a couple locations.

Okay, so apparently the first game on here was ported terribly and has a lot of issues (and also doesn't support a controller, which is a must for me), so this game is the best choice of the series on Steam. The story is, yes, incredibly lacking, but does the story really matter for a hacknslash? I would definitely get this game if you're into badass force powers and mauling down waves upon waves of Stormtroopers. If not, and you prefer story, and a good quality of level design, don't get it. But this is an all around fun game that I loved playing and will continue to play.
