  • When you hear the name Star Wars, you look forward to something that is normally special and interesting
  • Given the size of the company of LucasArts and the technology available to them, one would think that this problem could be fixed between the making of the first game and the second
  • Anyone who plays the game will agree that there were several things missing that were important towards the game and the storyline, (if you know the movies and the first game)

      When you hear the name Star Wars, you look forward to something that is normally special and interesting. Sometimes that something and interesting thing is normally very long, with an in-depth story line that. Well, all expectations for the new Star Wars Force Unleashed II game went right down the tube within 1 hour of playing the game.

      First, the game-play graphics were a step up from the first game. The pictures, the graphics, and the people were clearer and looked real, but the bodies still moved like they were robots. Given the size of the company of LucasArts and the technology available to them, one would think that this problem could be fixed between the making of the first game and the second. Didn’t happen.

      As anyone who has played this game will attested, the real disappointment was that IT IS TOO SHORT!!! I beat the game within 4 hours of receiving it, even with watching all


      the cut scenes, which didn’t even amount to a small movie as most games will have these days. As compared to the first game, it was far shorter and even more confusing about the direction in which the storyline was heading. There was also confusion about if the main character is really a clone of Starkiller or not, and at the end of the game, there were clues that Starkiller might be a clone after all or Vader might have been lying to him from the start.

      Sometimes the funniest, longest, and hardest part of action games is fighting the main enemy, a powerful one that is really hard to beat. Sadly, the hardiest enemy this game has to throw at us gamers is in the second stage of the game. Vader is surprisingly easy to defeat, for someone who was so powerful in the movies.

      The one thing that had me confused, more than anything else, was the very ...


      • end of the game (The Good Side ending). I have watched all the movies for years, even read some of the books about the Star Wars universe. If you don’t want a spoiler, please stop reading now. If you decide to be a good guy, you can spare Vader’s life after you defeat him and let him by captured by the Rebellion and taken to the very planet that Leia tells the Empire about before The Death Star destroys her home world in A New Hope. If this game series was actually endorsed by Lucas to be the events that happened between the end of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, how did Vader get away and why didn’t he all ready know about the Rebel base’s location since they said it right in front of him?!!

        There are more holes in the story itself, but that is too long of an argument to make. Anyone who

        plays the game will agree that there were several things missing that were important towards the game and the storyline, (if you know the movies and the first game).

        Listed above are cons for this game, but there are pros as well. Not very many thou. Starkiller is stronger and has more powers to master with more finishing moves as well as combining powers and attacks.

        In all, it was fun to play through once, but the main question I have always asked of any video game is, IS THERE ANY REPLAY VALUE? The answer for Force Unleashed II is NO. Play through once to at least to get an idea of the storyline and what happened after the events of Force Unleashed I. All of the gamers I has spoken to, online and in stores, all seem to agree that they should not have purchased the game. Rent it first. It’s not worth the 60.00 dollars that stores ask.
