Fun but repetitive,
This review is from: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (PS3) (Video Game)
This game is a revolution in systems, bringing in several new systems that were created for this game and will most likely go on to be used in a lot of games. The systems are great but they need touching up, one such system makes your enemy more realistic by making them want to try and survive if you pick them up by having them grab onto ledges and other people, but for me, this seemed useless, playing the full game this happened to me about twice. The other system makes materials appear more realistic and act like they would in real life, but this like the first wasn't very much of a shock for me. Only certain objects can be affected in this way and the majority aren't even affected, so they seemed to put too much time into these two systems instead of actual gameplay.
The gameplay is fun for the first while, but there is only so much you can do with the limited number of forcepowers you have, and the enemy all act the same that you end up just oneshotting everyone. The enemy in the first levels of difficulty aren't hard, it takes ALOT to kill you, but most of the harder enemy use missiles on you that track you and one hit disrupts any force power you're using, and they fire them so often they just become an annoyance that just wastes time for you.
The graphics are good, but nowadays few games don't have good graphics, so it gets few marks for that. In truth the majority of this games point come from its good storyline that ties in effortlessly with the movies and books. It is FUN though, for a while, though a lot of the fights get similar, and since you kill off all the enemy with quick time events it does get a bit dull fighting them.
I would reccommend this for all star wars fans and people who enjoy action games but for anyone else it would be too repetitive to be fun. If you do want to get it though, try to get a preowned version, i regret paying this amount of money for a game that is this short. The game is broken down into levels that feel long but are actually quite short, especially one level which you can complete in like 10 minutes.
You either like it or hate it, that's just what it comes down to.
