About This Game

The Star Wars® Saga continues with Star Wars®: The Force Unleashed™ II, the highly anticipated sequel to the fastest-selling Star Wars game ever created. In Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, the world was introduced to Darth Vader’s now fugitive apprentice, Starkiller—the unlikely hero who would ignite the flames of rebellion in a galaxy so desperately in need of a champion.

In the sequel, Starkiller returns with over-the-top Force powers and embarks on a journey to discover his own identity and to reunite with his one true love, Juno Eclipse. In Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, Starkiller is once again the pawn of Darth Vader—but instead of training his protégé as a ruthless assassin, the dark lord is attempting to clone his former apprentice in an attempt to create the Ultimate Sith warrior. The chase is on – Starkiller is in pursuit of Juno and Darth Vader is hunting for Starkiller.

With all-new devastating Force powers and the ability to dual-wield lightsabers, Starkiller cuts a swath through deadly new enemies across exciting worlds from the Star Wars films - all in his desperate search for answers to his past.

Key features:
  • Continue the galaxy-altering journey of Starkiller, Darth Vader's fugitive apprentice, that shapes the key events between Star Wars: Episode III and Episode IV.
  • Unleash the Force with more power and precision through improved controls and new powers, such as the deceptive Mind Trick, which turns enemies against their allies.
  • Discover the true power of Starkiller with Force Fury, where his attacks and Force powers are exponentially increased.
  • Improved targeting system enhances precision use of Force powers and greater interaction with puzzles and the environment.
  • Take combat to the next level with the ability to wield dual lightsabers and punish enemies with all-new combo attacks.
  • Experience the most life-like interactions with Pixelux Entertainment's Digital Molecular Matter (DMM) coupled with euphoria from Natural Motion Ltd and the powerful Havok Physics system.
  • Expanded customization options such as new costumes and power-enhancing lightsaber crystals.
  • Fight through all-new challenge levels designed to test and hone your fighting and Force power skills.
  • Skillfully manage your combat techniques to defeat a variety of brand-new enemies, which will culminate in epic boss battles.
  • Immerse yourself once again in the story that was honored with awards from the Writer's Guild of America and the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences.

This game is 4 years old now, and I believe it is time for a new review. My standards for review scores are 10 starting points, and -1 point for everything done wrong. Before I continue, I need to state that I am not biased towards any particular gaming company or extended universe/lore. I review the game as it should be reviewed -- as a time waster. Things done right in this game are below:

Great Graphics

Lightsaber Combat and Force Powers Done Right

Many Customization Options (Including several costumes [Just for aesthetics] and many lightsaber crystals which give you different upgrades)

The game has done a good job with capturing the atmosphere of the environments, especially Kamino

Things done wrong are below:

The Story is atrocious, no debate. And with the story being a major point of any game, an extra point is taken off. -2 points.

The player character is a mix of blandness and unoriginality, however, at times, you can feel like an indestructible god, choosing who lives and who dies which provides a fun experience. Not enough to keep a point, however, so -1 point.

Finally, Quick Time Events (QTE's) are abundant, and repetitive. -1 more point.

The final score for this game is: 6/10. While being a good Star Wars game, it still has enough flaws to put it at an average rating. In my opinion, if you haven't gotten this game yet, get it. Even though it doesn't have the highest rating, it can still be a lot of fun if you don't play a game for the story, but to waste time and have fun.

It is fun to unleashed the force: stormtroopers are in air, AT-Ats get fed up with their own rockets and Vader is a nervous Sith Lord. The con of this game is that it doesn’t last long.
This game is high quality. The cinematics are better than the movies, the art style is gorgeous, everyone looks better(except for Juno) your force power are higher and in turn, the havoc you’ll create. The story is simple and there are some very discreet subplots(the biggest one is unlocked in the challenges). Some people have reported bugs, but they have submitted fixes as well. I for one didn’t have a problem with this game. Except for one thing. It was too short. It was like sex with someone really hot, one a day when you’re so full of energy and into it, but for a reason, it’s so short it will strike you like the Death Star.
A good question would be: “Is the game worth buying if it’s short?”. I’ll tell you what this game has and it will be your choice if you’ll take it or leave it.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=436790249
Fans of its prequel will notice that old moves are still there, many unlocked from the start. You have the typical force powers: force push, force lightning, force repulse, saber throw and a new one: mind trick. They all feel powerful when used, they’re designed to be enjoyed rather than used tactically. Whether you push, stun, impale them or make them commit suicide, it’s still the same, you are unstoppable. However, they are more detailed than you can see at first glance. Mind trick makes troopers attack the others or jump to their deaths in a humorous way, lighting will overheat the jet of a trooper, resulting in his flying around without control to an explosive end. Also new to the series, there is the body dismemberment, making the sword combat more satisfying. Having two lightsabers instead of one make the protagonist to fight in a more agile and aggressive way. Force fury is an ability that amplifies your power for a limited time. In that stance, enemies are pulverized by your power. The game itself is not hard. Unleashed mode will present something that could have been old school challenge, but gaining full health whenever checkpoints are reloaded simplifies things too much. Skydiving is fun and has its place, there are three sequences anyway. The QTE’s are the type that can be failed, but most are optional, boss battles being the only ones that require them. Boss battles themselves are well designed, as there are multiple stages with key moments that make the real differences. The gameplay itself is one of the best.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=436786831
The story is incomplete. Even if it doesn’t show, reading the novel(which proves the story’s potential) proves how much more there was to say. Even if you go through Kamino, Cato Nemoida, Dagobah, aboard a big rebel ship called the “Salvation” that will later engage in a space battle and facing Vader on your return to Kamino, it’s not enough. What is there is spectacular, but the canon end makes way for a sequel that will never be made.
In the story, you are the clone of Starkiller who inspired the creation of the rebellion. You are made stronger than the original to suit Vader’s more demanding commands. As you retained the memories of the original, you’ll find yourself fighting the empire and looking forward for reuniting with your old love. This time around, Starkiller is the hunted one, but he has enough power to face whatever Vader is throwing at him. However he is delayed and at the end, Vader proves he can make him do his bidding.
Vader is portrayed as the menace he is in the books: manipulative and hard to take down. He has the intellect from the original trilogy and the fighting skills from the prequel trilogy.
There are two endings, the light side one where the rebellion earns a major victory because of you and the dark side one, where you die, Vader stands victorious, with the perfect dark side clone at his side.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=434687427
If you want to spend more time in the game, there are several challenges that make you use your force powers in certain ways, there are all kinds of outfits and skins to unlock(and they are worth it), holocrons to collect for getting new saber crystals(that change the sabers color and add an effect in combat), cinematics revolving around the dark clone subplot and that’s about it. If you look for more of the lore, there is a databank and concept art available.
It’s a well designed game, high quality, but low quantity. Star Wars fans and gamers in general(casual and hardcore) should buy this if they have the money to spare.

So you're looking down in the reviews seeing a mixed reaction to this game. Well, there's some stuff to like and some stuff to dislike about this game.
Pros:
- Story is good! It was an enjoyable ride.
- Graphics are really good!
- The combat feels good and isn't a pain in the butt to do.

Cons:
- It's a short game. You'll be lucky to get over 10 hours after the first run through (I played it twice).
- While the combat feels good, it's also repetitive. Same with many of the boss fights. During the game, you'll probably master how to beat most of the enemies within the first hour or two.

So if you're a fan of Star Wars, and you're up for a cool, short adventure, I highly advise that you grab this game in a sale!

This game is really more of an animated star wars movie where you control all the (lengthy) fight scenes. As long as you don't expect it to last too much longer than a movie, you wont be disappointed. What it (still) does really well is make you feel very powerful. You're a true master of the force having awesome powers, and it feels great.
Seeing as you can complete it so quickly, I'd get it in a sale or something. It was pretty much a rip off at the launch price, but now for 5 bucks or so, it's good for a few evenings of good fun.

I had to write a new an updated review about this game. I had only played 20 minutes of the game on pc since I never got it to run at over 30 frames per second. That is now something of the past. There is a crack that unlocks the game to be played at 60 fps or over with the steam game. Just look for it on Google!

Since the Humble bundle sale there has been a large amount of bad reviews of this games some people not being able to run it at over 30 or not run it at all. Problems with the cutscenes etc.

I installed the 60 fps unlock and played this game nonstop without any problem at all. Not one cutscene was less than 1080 quality and the game ran perfectly from beginning to end. The crack for the unlock might appear as a virus but that is also fake. The file is fine!

I 100% recommend playing this with a gamepad!!

Now to the game.

I only had played the first forced unleashed (at 30 and with a keyboard and mouse) and loved it. This game TFU2 has everything improved. The controls are way tighter and respond top and the game just runs overall better.

I played the game and it took me about 11 hours to finish it. I played it on normal dificulty and must have died maybe once or twice in a level. Maybe sometimes even more. I have read the game clocks 4 hours. That is impossible!
Maybe playing it with cheats and on padawan. I went for all the upgrades and played at a normal pace.

The graphics of this game are really amazing. everything looks super polished and the effects of this game are really over the top awesome. You can use the force in ways you have never seen.

The music is really amazing because we have john williams score from episode 4.5and 6 and it was edited perfectly to fit to the story. The story is not the best but we cant really say any Star Wars story is a oscarworthy material. Its Star Wars and we love it!

The gamplay can get somewhat repetative but in the 11 hours I never got sick of the crazy things I could pull off with my character. I recomend doing the challenges to learn some crazy ♥♥♥ movements and do them in the story. This game plays like your typical God of War, Devil May Cry over the top hack n slash.

The game is great fun and should be highly enjoyed if you grew up with Star Wars.


I give this game a 9/10 since its originally locked at 30. But overall this game is truly amazing and wont dissapoint.

As a star wars fan I liked it, however the first game was more fun for me and with more content. The second game was quick to beat, I did it in like 6 hours or less playing casually. I wouldn't buy it without my love of star wars I guess it can be somewhat considered as a "crappy" game but i'm glad I got the chance to go through it.

Well, where should I start?
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is a direct sequel of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. (Pretty obvious, right?)
I won't go into details about the story in order to avoid potential spoilers in case you're interested in buying this game. But, I'll just say that, although linear, it's pretty solid and not as bad as some people say. I'm a huge Star Wars fan and I really enjoyed it. After finishing TFU, I was wondering if the story could continue and TFU2 surprised me a lot, giving me some hours of fun.
Let's start with the review, shall we?
First of all, do not pay attention to the people that often speak bad things about this game. But, just in case, I'll take in consideration some points that most people complained about
Yes, is a pretty short game. Yes, it has abundant and repetitive QTE's (Quick Time Events). Yes, it's not a flawless port. Yes, it may be somewhat easy if you managed to finish the first game in Sith Master difficulty.

But, let's look at the bright side. I have actually enjoyed the game.
The gameplay of the game is very similar to the previous one, but instead of one lightsaber, now you have two. It's still a great Hack N' Slash, indeed. New enemies, new threats, new combos and the possibility to test your abilites with the Challenge mode (Once you win a challenge, you unlock videos that give more information about the story).
Despite that the port was not something out of this world, the graphics are beautiful and the evironments are beautifully crafted, recreating a gorgeous Star Wars atmosphere.
As I've said before, I'm a big fan of the Star Wars universe and the replayability comes from two sides. Firstly, if you're interested in test your ability in Unleashed mode and secondly, if you enjoyed the story and would like to experience a different ending.
If you ask me what I dislike the most about this game, I'll tell you two things. First, that the Endor DLC is only available for consoles. And, last but not least, the lack of achievements. I like to test myself with the achievements and, also, they enlong the playability of the game.

Do you want my honest opinion? It's a good game, there's no doubt about that. But, perhaps you would like to wait until it's on sale.
On the other hand, if you're a big Star Wars fun, wait no more and buy it right now. The fun is guaranteed.

Extremeley Short game but while you are playing its really fun. Its one of those third person slashers, you get maybe a whole day or two of fun then its done and basically never touch it again. If its on sale i reccomend it...But i would strongly reccomend buying the first one as well and u should have a weekend of awesome star wars fun.

Star Wars the Force Unleashed II
This takes place a few years after the (good ending) events of Force Unleashed I, and through this time it is questioned but not ever officially told if the Hero, Starkiller is simply a clone of his former self, or the true Starkiller who somehow survived all this time.
The past memories of Starkiller are starting to drive this "clone" mad, and he must try to finish what Starkiller started in the last one, and end to the Empire!
This game is MUCH shorter than the first game, and after what you did in the first one, everything done here just seems...EH. True, in this game you do defeat a giant monster in an Arena, take down Darth Vader (again) but, in the previous game you killed MULTIPLE Jedi, brought a Star Destroyer down from space, formed the rebel alliance, etc.
The combat, is an improvement, as well as the game graphicly. However, the game is just so short, the collectibles, are not really worth much, other than skins and SLIGHTLY different lightsabers.
The story, isn't nearly as good, and many times the game feels cheap just jerking off for fan service.
I GUESS I would recommend this game....on SALE.
It can be fun, but only really good for 1-2 playthroughs at best.

Don't get me wrong, i rather enjoyed the game. Huge amounts of bugs and physics problems aside, but given how short this game is and how old it is, i shouldn't have bought it for 20 bucks. Wait until it's on sale if you want to get this.

game is too short. boss fight is good but no jedi/sith boss (except Vader) makes this game looks like God of War not a Starwars game. Lightsaber and force combat is much better than Force Unleashed 1 though.
6/10

I just finished this game in 5 hours. Even despite the reality that the game is too short, that the story has a weak premise, and that General Kota brings back visions of the COs from the weaker Mega Man X games with his constant advice in boss fights and over acted lines. I still recommend this game. Why? The Unleashed series and its predecessor get one key thing right.

Powers.

This game makes you feel like a badass Jedi. Not just a Jedi like in the movie, but an actual powerful one. Granted I'd say that the first game did this a little better, but it's still a fairly rare thing among the various star wars games.

Tthat said, the shortness of the game is a huge problem. Don't pay more than 10 dollars for this if you can help it. You can get much better value for that price even among star wars games alone.

The gameplay in this is absolutely incredible, but I accidentally tried to login to the Lucasarts Servers, which don't exist after disney took over. This caused the game to never work again no matter how many uninstalls I use. Overall though, excellent game.

I liked it mostly becasue it's a hack and slash with friggin force powers!! Absolutely love the force powers and graphics. I had played this on the WII before, but nothing beats PC.

With that said, it's a downer that it's so short, and that there's not a ton of content. Once you finish the game, you probably won't be compelled to go back and re-play much unless you want to destroy something. It's also capped at 30fps. As a 60fps player whose never experienced 120+, I must say the cap didn't bother me at all. As it's a steady 30 and not randomly dipping or some shiz, it was unnoticable. That's just me though, and I certainly don't have the best eyes.

If you want to get rid of some steam and kill some crappy stormtroopers, this is a game to do it in.

I enjoyed playing this game but who doesn't enjoy slashing with a lightsaber and force throwing stormtroopers around. All the fun moves you would expect from a Star Wars based game. I completed this in under 10 hours but I had fun and don't go for long games anyway.

Not perfect by a long shot but worth a play.

8/10

Saw a lonely Stormtrooper, so I thought he needed a friend.
I mind tricked him and he followed me until we ran into some more Stormtroopers.
He was never lonely again.

Would help anti-social Stormtrooper again. 8/10
