Ok I'll give Kudos where they are due; You guys should pat yourselves on the back for continuing the story of Starkiller, he is the most interesting character to me the expanded universe can and will ever have. As far as the actual game goes, it looks beautiful. The fighting seems smoother with the dual lightsabers, the mind trick is a lot of fun. Also you guys had a white lightsaber to go along with a black lightsaber not that is just awesome
i loved the graphics and storyline,very dark and suspenceful. When the rebels captured vader i knew he let himself get captured and he is simply going to destroy the rebel base on dantooine.I also loved it when at the end boba's ship appears and follows starkiller. Great job lucasarts!
A humorous moment: When Starkiller is in a Neimodian hall and approaches a painting, he says 'You gotta be kidding me."
Mind trick was good for a few laughs too.
Force Unleashed title worthy feats:
Escape dive from Vader.
Force Fury mass mind trick at Vader's TIE landing pad.
Whole body weapon diving impalement of the Gorog.
The entire planet dive / crashing the Salvation. geeze he did a lot of plummeting in this game
Most satisfying moments were both at the good ending. She's alive! And seeing Vader bound and the doors slide shut leaving him in pitch black. Anyone else anticipating his escape?
I've posted complaints about TFU II in every topic it's about time I give it kudos where kudos are due.
The opening falling sequence on Kamino was amazing, technically, and this has to be the best looking game I've ever seen. Definitely the best weather effects, with the rain and soaked clothes.
Dismemberment and decapitation, even though it's not varied enough.
Grapple moves, even though two aren't anywhere near enough to say the least.
The Salvation level was an awesome one, loved it. It looked fantastic, great ambience, very dark, very gritty. Terror troopers were great. (Unfortunately it was only the first half I enjoyed, it got too repetitive and drawn out.)
Vader's characterization was nearly spot on here from TESB. I'd got as far to say as it's the best portrayal of him since Shadows of the Empire. Always seeming to be in control. I really believe he let himself get captured.
Star Wars going downhill: Return of the Jedi>Prequel Trilogy>The Force Unleashed>The Clone Wars>The Force Unleashed II

Overall the game is fun. The difficulty level is even and there aren't any controller throwing inducing moments.
All of the environments are well realized and nice looking.
The menu navigation is much improved.
Challenge mode is a nice addition and fun to a degree.
The streamlined level up mechanic with simply spending points is good but at the same time it doesn't feel like you are customizing your character or can choose a path to create a different play style than the last play through. Seems too far the other way from the previous system.
This is sort of back handed but I'm still invested and curious what happens to Kota, Juno and Starkiller despite the under achieving story.
I am going through the game again, and I was on the Salvationj right at the beginning when ur walking throughg the corridors before the terror droids attack, and I was using headphones which were surround sound ones, and it really added to the creepy atmosphere, with the music and the background noises you wouldnt really hear unless u had headphones, and for a moment i felt like I was back on the Prosecutor in Republic Commando.
Completed the storyline within 5 hours+ with Hard difficulty right away.
Once done, started back from the first with Unleashed Difficulty.
2-3 days to complete all of the achievements and challenges.
Completed the 50/50 X360 Achievements.
Satisfied with the game, and the Challege Mode is awesome. Laugh Out Loud. ("I thought you were dead!" Proxy and Galen said at the same time) Awesome gameplay and the dual-handed lightsaber is seriously cool. Impressed with the Visuals/Graphics. Could just AWE-ed for a very long time.
and if TFU3 MIGHT come out in the future, I'm looking forward to it.
Who knows, this time Galen Marek might be using Dual-Bladed Lightsaber just like Darth Maul.
I finished the game on release date and decided to take a few days to think about what I wanted to say.
I was impressed w/ the graphics, the voice acting, the music, the action and MOST of the story.
The personal journey the character goes through to find himself and the woman he loves was a great premise. How he was willing to sacrifice everything, even the rebellion in order to get to her was a great part IMO. I think anyone that has ever been in love can understand how single minded one can become when our loved one is hurt (physically or emotionally) or their fate is uncertain.
The maps were GORGEOUS and the character design was incredible.
I loved the way the force powers were portrayed, for example, seeing Force lightning turn more purple as you ranked it up was neat and being able to control a bunch of troopers was awesome.
