Amazon.co.uk Review

The Star Wars saga will continue in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, a videogame developed by LucasArts, which casts players as Darth Vader's "Secret Apprentice" and promises to unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. The expansive story, created under direction from George Lucas, is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In it, players will assist the iconic villain in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi - and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny.

As its name implies, The Force Unleashed completely re-imagines the scope and scale of the Force by taking full advantage of newly developed technologies that will be seen and experienced for the first time: Digital Molecular Matter (DMM), by Pixelux Entertainment, and euphoria by NaturalMotion Ltd. Paired with the powerful Havok Physics™ system, these new technologies create gameplay only possible on the new generation of consoles. DMM incorporates the physical properties of anything in the environment so that everything reacts exactly like it should - wood breaks like wood, glass shatters like glass, plants on the planet Felucia bend like plants on the planet Felucia would, and more. Meanwhile, as a revolutionary behavioural-simulation engine, euphoria enables interactive characters to move, act and even think like actual human beings, adapting their behaviour on the fly and resulting in a different payoff every single time.


Game Features:
  • During the period between Episodes III and IV, players hunt Jedi in the role of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice.
  • Unleash and upgrade the Secret Apprentice's four core Force powers - Force push, grip, repulse and lightning - throughout the course of the game, and combine them for ultra-destructive, never-before-seen combos.
  • Examples of unleashing the Force in ways never thought possible:
    • The Secret Apprentice won't just Force push enemies into walls - he'll Force push enemies through walls.
    • The Secret Apprentice won't just Force grip foes to throw them aside - he'll Force grip them in midair, zap them with lightning, then drop them to the ground to explode like a bomb.
  • In addition to new adversaries created just for the game, such as fugitive Jedi and Force-sensitive Felucians, players will also confront and associate with familiar faces from the Star Wars films, including Darth Vader.
  • Visit locations such as Episode III's Wookiee homeworld Kashyyyk and the floral Felucia, the junk planet Raxus Prime, plus an Imperial TIE fighter construction facility.
  • The Force Unleashed is LucasArts' first internally developed title for next-generation consoles, and it represents the first in-game collaboration of talents and technology between LucasArts and Industrial Light & Magic, two companies now finally under one roof at the new Letterman Digital Arts Center in San Francisco's Presidio district.
  • The Force Unleashed debuts Digital Molecular Matter from Pixelux and euphoria behavioral simulation from NaturalMotion Ltd.
  • LucasArts is preparing an unprecedented promotional effort around the launch of The Force Unleashed, encompassing a full line of toys and game-based action figures from Hasbro, as well as a full publishing program from Dark Horse, Del Rey and Palace Press.

Meet the Cast
The Star Wars Saga will continue in 2008 with LucasArts' biggest-ever video game event. Set during the "dark times" between Episodes III and IV, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed portrays the previously untold story of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice -- and now you can put a face to that mysterious character as well as the major supporting cast members as LucasArts unveils the actors set to star in The Force Unleashed.

The Cast of The Force Unleashed

The New Technology of The Force Unleashed
With The Force Unleashed, LucasArts not only introduces a new chapter in the Star Wars saga, but also two completely new and innovative technologies -- Digital Molecular Matter by Pixelux Entertainment and euphoria by NaturalMotion Ltd. These groundbreaking technologies combine with Havoc physics to create true next-gen gameplay and the Force like it's never been seen or experienced before.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Force unrealised 21 Sep 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
At first, it's impossible not to like this game. The hype has been overwhelming and the prospect of playing as Darth Vadar before stepping into the shoes of his secret apprentice is a thrilling thing for even a half-baked star wars fan. The intro is great- the rousing John William's score, the scrolling text, and then a pre-rendered, high definition intro. Good times.

However, even a few minutes into the game, the initial thrill begins to wane as the limitations of this new release start to unravel. Sand box this ain't. From the off you can move ten feet to you left and ten feet to your right and it is immediately clear that the only direction you are meant to (and allowed to) go is straight forward. This rapidly establishes itself as the overriding rule of the game, and it is not much of an exaggeration to say the environments are almost as restrictive as the old crash Bandicoot games. Remember them? Replace Crash with Sith and you're not in a galaxy far, far away from this. No sense of a leap forward in gaming technology here, then.

So on you plough, blasting things out of the way with force push, swinging your light-saber wantonly, rolling past huge wookies and bumbling stormtroopers. There's no doubt that using your force powers to hurl adversaries out of your path and over cliffs is great fun. This is strongest and best aspect of the game, so starting with Vadar at the height of his powers is a master-stroke.

Eventually, after a surprisingly short introduction level, you find your way to an expanded area, which, were this two generations ago, you would assume were designed to facilitate a generic end of level boss. You know the type of boss I mean- from Playstation one/two games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars Unleashed Brilliant 2 Sep 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I orderd this game for my son as he kept going on X Box Live and looking at the demo.He was not dissapointed when it arrived. An excellent game with awsome graphics and agreat story line. Any one who loves the Star Wars films or other games won't be dissapointed to purchase this game to add to their catalouge. The game has kept him occupied for weeks now and he still keeps going back to it. My son is 12 years old and has found it just the right type of challenge for him, not too hard not too easy. A great buy and worth every penny.

3.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars The Force Unleashed 22 Sep 2008
By Mr. G
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a brief honest review from a game lover and a star wars fan.
Having now completed the game, one day after purchase I feel a little short changed. Although the game is fun, once you have gained control of your power (unlike other reviews I have not found that the game will throw items off in random directions when you send them flying, and simply attribute this to poor use of the controls)it is a very short game.
The game is fun, you do get a thrill from throwing around hoards of stormtroopers, electrocuting rancors, and blasting open doors with your force push. Also the story behind the game, I feel, is well done.
Unfortunatly the game does have many flaws, glitch's, you may hear about, being one of them. The game seems not able to keep up with everything going on and that causes the game to stutter at times, albeit very briefly, however once you are into the game and busy slicing up at-at's you hardly notice it. Also many of the boss battles are from an awkward POV, which cannot be changed, in some cases this is only a minor problem, but in some battles it means that the boss himself is off screen whilst he kicks your butt; this however does not take away from the end boss battles, which I enjoyed.
These however are the only major problems, repetition is not so much a problem as the game, as said before is quite short, and there is a lot of fun to be had from this game, however it may be worth waiting for the price to drop a little before purchase!

4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed but still worth it... 16 Nov 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Personally i bought this game purely and simply because i love star wars and i especailly love the games. With that in mind i still love the game. The idea behind it is good the story isn't too bad(though its not the awe inspiring link between EP III and IV that people tote it as). The graphics could probably be better for the console power behind it but the locales are still gorgeous to look at especially the wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk. To be honest its everything i expected it to be though which is good.

The bad part is though that its still fundamentally flawed by the same things that make many close combat games annoying. The fiddley close combat is made all the more worse by the fact that you can't block properly if your getting hit and there are several enemies within the game that are designed with one thing in mind and thats to swamp you with hand to hand weapons and just take it in turns to hit you with combos you can't block. I died several times playing this game from the most simple of things as i just couldnt possibly escape the corner id been pushed into. Exploding ranged attacks always seem to knock you over and then just the split second before your completely up again you get hit and knocked over again. And the targeting system for the force grip seems to only work when the game wants it to i spent valuable seconds in several fights waving the camera back and forth jsut trying to get a lock on a box to help my fight out a little and usually ended up dead for my sins. The camera system itself is annoying as nine times out of ten when firing lightening at an enemy it misses at the crucial moment because the camera is at a slight angle and doesnt adjust quickly enough.
