Joystiq: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 review: Not the sequel you're looking for

Joystiq: "Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 is a desperate cash grab. For whatever minor improvements were made to the combat for this sequel -- and, boy, are they pretty basic -- the story is an insult to the original's award-winning narrative. While the first Force Unleashed tied up a compelling piece of Star Wars cannon in a nice bow, the sequel has no aspiration to be a major part of lore or to be nearly as epic. It simply cobbles together glorified fan fiction for what amounts to an unexceptional subplot as it abruptly ends in the second act screaming, 'SEQUEL GOES HERE!'"

The story is too old to be commented.

Remember when people were comparing this to inFamous 2? Based off the demo, the gameplay is nowhere near as fun as inFamous 1 and the graphics don't even come close to inFamous 2, even though that particular game is still a ways off.

Lucas Arts has been going downhill for years.

Anyone else hear Obi-Wan's voice?

"This is not the sequel you are looking for"

lol true, what we are looking for is Battlefront 3. To bad it got canceled.

Bullshit, the demo alone was at least an 8 outa 10.

Zachmo1822968d ago

Yea dude i have to agree with you..That demo was pretty sweet and a hell of a lot better then the first game.

Yeah...and you've never seen a good trailer to a boring ass movie with cherry picked scenes in the trailer?

Blaster_Master2968d ago

True, but I actually played through the trailer like 15 times cause its just that damn good. And thats coming from someone who played and hated part 1.

AntoineDcoolette2968d ago

TBH I had more fun with the first demo of the first game and that isn't saying much

LucasArts stop licensing these average games and make a decent studio do SWBF3, Another Rogue Squadron game, a proper Knights of the Old Republic sequel(The MMO doesn't count), or even a Republic Commando sequel. I'm sure I forgot a few other good Star Wars franchises that should have sequels.
