Star Wars meets Devil May Cry
4 Star Review   By member mkernan - Nov 4, 2008   

Strengths: Fast paced, fun action; leveling up powers is somewhat rewarding; excellent art design, good graphics

Weakness: slightly buggy at times, no multiplayer

I'll admit it... I'm a Star Wars fan. So, if you aren't, then take this review with a grain of salt. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed tackles the period of time between episodes 3 and 4 and tells the tale of Darth Vader's secret apprentice. Many die-hard SW fans will think this is blasphemy the way they have added to the canon of the Star Wars saga. Nonetheless, the way they shoehorn the storyline in is interestingly done. The gameplay itself is essentially a third-person hack 'n slash, a la Devil May Cry. Add to this basic formula the ability to jump really high, throw your lightsaber, and use a handful of other force powers, and you actually end up with a pretty darn fun game. The overall art design is rather impressive. Environments come to life and character design is rather well-done. Overall it totally nails the Star Wars look and feel. All these elements combine together in a way that felt to me like a cross between Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast (in third person mode) and Devil May Cry. I quite thoroughly enjoyed playing through the game but when I finished, I lamented the lack of a multiplayer mode.

5 Star Review   By member cmangrum - Oct 21, 2008   

Strengths: graphics, action, and the game play

Weakness: none at the moment

I love this game. Great game play and good graphics. Plenty of levels and you can have alternate endings, also you get to play the dark side and on the good side, which allows you to play from different point of views. I would recommend this game to adults and older kids.
