The combat is fluid and gratifying, thanks to a few new visual touches (like dismemberment of defeated enemies) and that incredible physics engine that has bits of scenery flying all over the place as you fight, not to mention the super-slick framerate. But sound mechanics count for nothing if the game they're in fails to inspire, and The Force Unleashed II sadly doesn't. In any way. At all."
