The Euphoria game engine showed some amazing promise when it was first shown off, with enemies having natural self-preservation instincts and everything moving around and interacting realistically. The game is finally here, and much of what was promised has made it. However, The Force Unleashed really could've used some more time in development, as the final product is missing several layers of polish and has some extremely questionable design choices. Despite these severe problems, when everything clicks, there's a ton of fun to be had.
The Force Unleashed puts you into the shoes of Darth Vader's secret apprentice, Starkiller, during the time between Episodes III and IV of the movies. As Vader's apprentice, you're initially under orders to kill any of the remaining Jedi that Vader can find. The story goes off in a fairly interesting direction that turns much of the "Star Wars" story on its head - in a good way. For the Star Wars fanatics, there's no canon-breaking going on here."
