"Good game"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

While this is a very good game with many improvements over the first, such as faster and more fluid combat, it is far from perfect in many ways the story is weak, skipping over some plot lines. Also the game is short, my first play through lasted 4 hours from start to finish on normal difficulty, that said there are challenges to help extend the life of the game.

"A Game of Mixed Outcomes"
5 stars"

Star Wars The Force Unleashed 2 is a good game, and a vast improvement on the first. I have enjoyed and still enjoy playing it however conflicts within Lucas Art during production for this game have made them selves apparent.

The new force powers, combos, and the ability to grab people are pretty sweet and adds a lot of enjoyment to the game. With the targeting system being upgraded it seems easier to grab objects and manipulate them. However the odd random thing happens which sends an object or person flying in the opposite direction from where you wanted it to go.

The new combos are sweet however it is still too easy to button mash. However as the player we are enticed to play with a more accurate use of combos in order to gain more force experience points.

The story is good but could be more in depth. Now this would solve another of the games problems, it's story length. I have bowled through this game in about five hours. This is short, I and a lot of other people like our games to last. The Dagobah level for example could have been made longer and included more game play rather than making it almost one large cut scene.

Boss fights seem to have been almost ‘dumbed’ down they are simple and easy and almost always end with the exact same clip. Dash moments have been added which adds a new complex to the game. I liked this addition as a new take on evading combat.

The graphics have been vastly improved and now run smoother. The cut scenes are less like the dated Jedi Knight series and more like an animated HD video. That being said at times when a lot is happening on screen things do slow down a bit. Some may say this is a bad thing, however this slowing down seems to happen at times when really large explosions are happening or a massive amount of force power is being used. This makes them look totally awesome. It is hard to tell if it was programmed to do this or if it is a glitch due to overpowered awesomeness.

Star Wars The Force Unleashed II continues on with its hidden Holocrons as well. However they are a bit different this time around. You will find no Sith Holocrons or Jedi Holocrons. Instead you will find Holocrons that are a number of colours and unlock a number of items including saber crystals, force points, costumes and much more.

There are heaps of other new features I could tell you about, but I best let you find out for yourself. Now I am the biggest Star Wars fan this side of the Galactic Republic, and it is pretty hard for me not to enjoy any Star Wars game. And I can safely say that I have enjoyed this game (and am looking forward to the DLCs and rumoured TFU3) and the wait was well worth it. However as mentioned earlier, there were conflicts inside Lucas Arts before this game was released. This has largely impacted the game in both story and game play. I would say this game was intended to be larger than life, but due to difference of opinion had been altered and subsequently rushed. At times it is possible to see where two trains of thought have taken to a single level, sometimes it has worked. Others times it has left out possible game play and or story explanation. That being said I still give it a 5 bananas out 5, but perhaps I'm a little bias This game is a must have game for any Star Wars fan.

"Great but short"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Ok, so the force unleashed 2, one word, AWESOME! the gameplay is silky smooth the graphics are first rate and the enviroments are so beautiful it almost feels like you are there. I do have one slight niggle with it, the story is a little short, well not strictly true the levels are massive and quite drawn out, it just seems short. But all in all it is a fantastic follow up to the single finest star wars game on the market today.

Description

The Star Wars Saga continues with Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, the highly anticipated sequel to the fastest-selling Star Wars game ever created, which has sold more than seven million copies worldwide. In Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, the world was introduced to Darth Vader's now fugitive apprentice, Starkiller-the unlikely hero who would ignite the flames of rebellion in a galaxy so desperately in need of a champion.

In the sequel, Starkiller returns with over-the-top Force powers and embarks on a journey to discover his own identity and to reunite with his one true love, Juno Eclipse. In Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, Starkiller is once again the pawn of Darth Vader-but instead of training his protégé as a ruthless assassin, the Dark Lord is attempting to clone his former apprentice in an attempt to create the Ultimate Sith warrior. The chase is on - Starkiller is in pursuit of Juno and Darth Vader is hunting for Starkiller.


Features:
  • Fight through challenge levels designed to test and hone your fighting and Force power skills while you skillfully manage your combat techniques to defeat brand-new enemies, which will culminate in epic boss battles
  • Continue the galaxy-altering journey of Starkiller, Darth Vader's fugitive apprentice, that shapes the key events between Star Wars: Episode III and Episode IV
  • Unleash the Force with more power and precision through improved controls and new powers, such as the deceptive Mind Trick, which turns enemies against their allies
  • Discover the true power of Starkiller with Force Fury, where his attacks and Force powers are exponentially increased
  • Take combat to the next level with the ability to wield dual lightsabers and punish enemies with all-new combo attacks as well as expanded customization options such as new costumes and power-enhancing lightsaber crystals
