GamePro writes: As a Star Wars fan, it can sometimes be difficult to look at someone with a straight face who has yet to see the movies. As a gamer, on top of that, it's even harder to do the same with someone who has never picked up and played a Star Wars title. Still, they exist; those select few who were neglected that so-necessary joy of our childhoods that existed a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.
Lucas Arts has taken different measures with The Force Unleashed to attract people who would otherwise shun at the sight of yet another Star Wars game. Mimicking the type of over-exaggerative, heart-pounding action that we've seen in such games as Devil May Cry and God of War, The Force Unleashed gives players the chance to abuse the Force in a way we've never imagined possible.
The game is shaping up to be quite a looker, too. Different stages in the map provide a lot of eye candy, and the sheer scope of some of them can cause you to skip a few breaths. One stage, a junk planet called Raxis Prime, began with the player on the butt-end of a junked Star Destroyer that had been vertically shoved into the ground. Believe me when I say this game does a great job of providing visual examples of the scale and scope of the Star Wars universe.
