  • Summary: With Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, the epic story continues as players once again assume the role of the devastatingly powerful Starkiller - Darth Vader's secret apprentice set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.

    With precious few of those quality gameplay moments and a plot that limps along in need of focus, unfortunately Force Unleashed 2 ultimately fails to live up to the interest of its broken but far more compelling predecessor.

    The Force Unleased II is a good game. However, I would be hesitant to call it a good Star Wars game. The original Force Unleashed did a good job building on Star Wars' mythos in a way that was interesting but non-intrusive. It presented a simple story that featured plenty of thematic elements seen in both the original and prequel trilogy. However, the follow-up just doesn't capture the original's spirit, and that is what ultimately holds this title back from being something great.

    A good sequel with superior controls, some new features, a steady pace and a lot more action compared to the first game. With its short playing time of roughly five hours it fails to create as much atmosphere as The Force Unleashed 1 though and the PC-adaption suffers from a lot of technical issues, e.g. tearing, crashes, bugs and problems during setup. The gameplay itself will satisfy both Star Wars-Fans and those who enjoyed TFU1.

    This one is good for a rental at best, but only if you're so in love with Star Wars that you can see past its faults.

    An imperfect port of an unambitious sequel, TFU2 joins a growing list of Star Wars games that don't live up to their potential. [Jan 2011, p.72]

    This Force-powered sequel is a better port than its predecessor, but it never jumps to lightspeed.

    There are flashes of brilliance in this game that are simply wasted. [Jan 2010, p.58]

    I've never played a better Star Wars game than this, well.
    The Jedi Outcast 2 was pretty good too, but uh...
    You know it's just... Just...
    Plain. Awesome and I can **** **** this stupid character limiter. Expand

    It was short and all sure, but I enjoyed it and for the 10 bucks I paid for it on steam, that is good enough for me :-) I see, I have not written enough stuff. The graphics were good, the voice acting was good, the destruction engine was an embarrassment. Seriously, they gimped it further. But I still really enjoyed the game. Expand

    El juego es una joya para los amantes del universo de Star Wars que deja en vergüenza a su primera entrega. El final te mantiene con una sonrisa de incredulidad por lo que estás viendo mientras sabes que si alguien pasa y te ve no entenderá tu cara de idiota, jaja. Lamentablemente, más allá de una tremenda historia (que se siente un poco corta en relación a la de la primera parte), gráficos excelentes y un insuperable uso de la cámara que te mantiene dentro de una película más que un de juego, es imperdonable que al hacer el port desde las consolas al PC hallan solucionado de mala manera los controles. Yo no pude lograr que funcionara con mouse y teclado, pero usando el control del Xbox la experiencia de juego fue gloriosa (pasando por alto que hay uno o dos menus de configuración que no son manejables con el control pad y deben se manejados con el mouse). De todo corazón quiero calificar este juego con un 10 pero el problema de los controles, y que más de un año después de haberlo lanzado no hallan sacado un parche, que lo solucione, me obliga a ponerle un 8 ya que es un problema grabe (si no tienes un control pad no puedes jugar).

    I stumbled in a HUGE bug inside the level "The battle for the salvation". I had to remove a cell generator from a cannon and put it inside another one to open a blocked door, which would allow me to continue in the game. Well, I was simply unable to remove the cell generator from the first cannon. I had to restart the level two times, carrying with me a spare cell generator through half path and trying to not die. I failed both times, so I gave up without completing the game. No one have released a patch. What a shame. The game is very short (about 4 hours) and repetitive. It has got too much action, there are very few pauses, no puzzle sequences, few kind of enemies. The plot is nothing special. Anyway, graphics are pretty good, levels and cut-scenes are artistically awesome and boss fights are enjoyable. But....

    I spent 50â

    What a waste of awesome game mechanics. I loved TFU and replayed it countless times, but this.. something has really gone wrong in the development. Guess dramatic budget cuts and shortened development, so typical for LucasArts. And charging 50 euros for this "thing"? Madness. Expand

    This game has great graphics and great..... nope that's about it. The gameplay is horrible. I beat the game on the hardest difficulty in 3 hours. Same 3 maps. HORRIBLE ENDING!!!! Expand
