Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Review

The Exploding Barrel's Mark Fujii got his hands on an early copy of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Check out his full review.

"Star Wars: The Force Unleashed has a lot to live up to. The hype generated by the early tech demos and then its impressive trailers has been enormous. But hype is a double edged sword. While it serves the purpose of exciting fans into anticipating its release, it also considerably raises the expectations set for the game. But does Lucas Art's latest Star Wars title justify the hype, or is this another title doomed to disappoint its fans?"

They could have borrowed its control from Psi-Ops, and the game would have ranked in 9s or something.

The enemies were not good either ino. They had lots of them but weren't really smart.

"The enemies were not good either ino. They had lots of them but weren't really smart."

True to Star Wars canon at least.

I reckon the game will somewhat crumble under all the unmet expectations, but I thought the demo was quite fun and it could be worthwhile anyway.

Nevers3544d ago

Soooooo true !

And I had a blast with the demo too. I'll be picking this game up... maybe not at launch but down the road for sure.

Wish it had a multiplayer element cuz all my friends liked the demo and we all want to force push Tie-Fighters at each other.

(( o)(o ))

Peekay3544d ago

a bit of a shame. The engine totally kick ass. Imagine giving someone like capcom the gameplay elements. This could have been the perfect game...

tethered3544d ago

Capcom? Really?

How would they have made the gameplay elements better?
I'm not sure I understand what you mean.
I can see that other people would like an explanation too, going by the disagrees.

Please explain.

By the way I didn't hit disagree yet.

Peekay3544d ago

rock and are fun to play, be it for the technical hard core or button smashers. This game seriously lacks "fun" fighting mechanics.
Why what are you implying?

tethered3543d ago

Peekay, I guess its just the fact that when I hear the name Capcom the first game that comes to mind is RE. I knew there are other Capcom games but I usually only buy their RE series.

Now I see what you were talking about.

DMC would be good gameplay for this game.

I'll hit agree.

ReBurn3544d ago

I'm still getting it.

Cajun Chicken3544d ago

Not the only one. After playing the demo I could certainly do with more of thr Psi-Ops like gameplay, I was just a bit annoyed they didn't appear to put something like 'object surfing' in.
Looks great fun, I loved the way you can form a chain of stormtroopers as they hold hands and dangle in the air, lol.

OGharryjoysticks3544d ago

But I liked the demo for Conan better than TFU

I enjoyed Conan, except for some of the flawed boss battles.

I really loved it and gonna buy it DAY 1

don't forget the the final game will have more varied levels,more combos,more force moves,leveling system

Cajun Chicken3544d ago

Yep, same here. I just think people expect too much from games these days. Exactly what I expected it to look and play like.

CViper3544d ago (Edited 3544d ago )

I loved the demo. Already pre-ordered.

Cajun you are 100% right.. Everyone has retarded expectations hwen it comes to certaingames...

but for bs "AAA" games, its like the review book goes out the window. And they just praise them to high heaven with mediocre gameplay.

this game has a learning curve. After that, its great.
