Star Wars The Force Unleashed – Xbox 360 Review

Star Wars is without a doubt one of the most successful science fiction franchises of all time. And, in terms of video game franchises, LucasArts appears to be on the right track. With their most recent release, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, we finally get a taste of what it’s like to live on the other side of the galaxy – as Darth Vader’s Sith Apprentice, no less. visit
The game’s early stages aren’t terrific, and you’ll undoubtedly be asking why you’re playing as Darth Vader when this is supposed to be about his apprentice. Well, the apprentice has to come from somewhere, which is why you take on the role of Darth Vader.
As you continue through the game, you’ll find that you’re having a lot of fun with your Sith abilities. The more missions you complete, the more strong your abilities get. Everything, including force capabilities, talents, and even your light sabre, will someday be upgradeable.
On a visual level, the game is stunning; the detail is incredible, and the numerous settings you meet (ranging from ‘Raxus Prime’s junkyard home world to the rich and exotic vegetation of ‘Felucia’) are all well rendered. The movement of numerous people in cut-scenes was the only thing that didn’t appeal to me. It didn’t appear to be natural at all.
The game mechanics, on the other hand, are a completely other storey. The game’s movement is fluid and fast-paced (similar to Prince of Persia or Assassins’ Creed), and you’ll find yourself hopping and bouncing around with ease. Anyone could easily master the ‘Power of the Dark Side’ if they had a well-structured control mechanism. After roughly half an hour, you’ll be able to operate the game using basic movements like leap (A button), Force Push (B button), Force Lightning (Y button), Attack (X button), and Force Grip (Right trigger).
There’s a difficulty level for everyone, but I feel that action games are more fun when the difficulties are set slightly higher than your skill level would suggest. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed has an interesting and entertaining tale. The Apprentice is spoken by Sam Witwer from Battlestar Galactica, Juno Eclipse is performed by Nathalie Cox, Culley Fredricksen plays General Kota, and Maris Brood is spoken by Adrienne Wilkinson.
