    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]

    It's Star Wars game and it's slasher. As a fan of both I don't need more. But still I don't like playing horrible games. Fortunately TFU2 isIt's Star Wars game and it's slasher. As a fan of both I don't need more. But still I don't like playing horrible games. Fortunately TFU2 is good. It has nice visuals and sound, fast combat and good controls. PC port is much, much better than of the first game. Yet... The game is repetitive, very repetitive, and surprisingly small. 4 hours on normal and then you have no reason to replay. May the Force be with you, Lucas, and better luck next time. Expand

    This game is a terrible port to the PC. Developers decided to lock the FPS to 30, don't expect for high end computers to change this. HD cutThis game is a terrible port to the PC. Developers decided to lock the FPS to 30, don't expect for high end computers to change this. HD cut scenes are well known to have screen tearing occur a lot among many users. Story is about 4-5 hours long with no replay value. Story line is sub-par, might intrigue Star War fans more than the average gamer. Game play has improved from the first one and graphics are nice. I highly recommend renting the game on the console or PSP. Expand

    The worst boss battle in the history of video games. They padded the hell out of the game time in the final boss battle so this game couldThe worst boss battle in the history of video games. They padded the hell out of the game time in the final boss battle so this game could reach 5 hours. It might be worth playing to see how stupid it was. No spoilers here we all know your gonna eventually have to fight Darth Vader.

    Pretty much you kill a group of enemies you've fought 1000 times prior. Get a couple hits on Vader, Then it switches to the cinematic view where you have to press a button (like god of war) to hit. But instead of hitting you get a chance to talk to him. He tells you you're expendable then runs to the next floor.

    You follow him, kill another group of enemies exactly the same, get a couple hits, and listen to him tell you you're expendable again! This happens 15 freaking times!

    If that doesn't convince you and you still want to play this game, don't play it on pc. Way too many bugs including near game breaking ones.
