a reasonable game - but not especially great
on 31 January 2017
This is a direct sequel to Star Wars: Force Unleashed - The Ultimate Sith (Xbox 360) - and it's a reasonably good game. You once again play as the renegade apprentice of Darth Vader. The story is set a few years prior to the events of "Episode IV: A New Hope" - and involves you exploring aspects of the formation and development of the Rebel Alliance. There are many different alien worlds to visit, and a host of enemies to fight and slay ... using an assortment of Sith skills. The plot begins with you fleeing the Imperials - and deciding to help the rebellion.
This is, on the whole, a continuation of the first game. If you enjoyed that, you'll likely enjoy this one too. However, its campaign is not as long as the original installment. I found that it's possible to play through this game in just a few hours. And a lot of the game involves rather monotonous fighting. The only aspect of this game that's superior is that you can dual wield lightsabers - which is fun.
If you're a Star Wars fan and you enjoy third-person action-adventure games then I do recommend this item. Yet it's too short, and doesn't really offer anything that can't be found in the first game. As such, this videogame is not especially entertaining.
It can be played on the Xbox One - simply insert the disc and install.
