Star Wars Force Unleashed 2 short
In this case I’m going to have to say that yes size matters and 5-6 hours of game play is not worth 50 euro.
Visually the game is perfect, it’s a real treat to the eyes, but there are some problems with the game. The storytelling was lazy and too much time was dedicated to the fighting, which would have been fine were it not so repetitive. The story felt unimportant and like a side story rather than an epic adventure.
The game fails to answer fans questions. Is he a clone or not? I don’t know and I’ve completed the game.
The game wasn’t entirely a waste of time, it was fun to play and has a lot of replay potential, but it just isn’t offering enough to warrant spending so much money on it. The game promised more than it gave, such as the appearances of Boba Fett and Yoda, who probably clocked two minutes of screen time between them. Also a lot of the footage seen on the trailers does not appear in the game at all.
As with the first one, number two has multiple endings depending on a choice you make at the end of the game.
Rumours have been spreading around that Force Unleashed 3 was definitely off the table, but Julio Torres, producer of The Force unleashed 1 and 2, has said the rumours are untrue and a sequel is likely as ‘there’s still, between that (Force unleashed 2) and Episode IV, a couple years for us to play with’.
Hopefully a sequel is on the cards, and let’s also hope that it has a bit more story and game play than this one had. Even with all its faults I did like the game, the controls are easy to use and the fights give you a chance to be original and find new ways to kill enemies, but all on all the game loses major points for length and story. For this one I’m going to sit on the fence and give it two and a half stars.
