If you liked the first force unleashed then you may like this one too. There is only one problem, the game is way too short. The gameplay is great and I love using two lightsabers and I really love the new mind trick ability. The force powers are the same as the first but they imroved it bit by being able force grip three objects instead of one and also the lightsabers crystals have better upgrades. The gameplay was really good but this game would have been better if it was longer. The story had a good plot and I liked it at first but as you keep playing it gets really predictable. I dont just play a game for the gameplay, I also want to play it for the good story but this was a real disappointment. I only gave it a 7 because the story was ok but too short and I really liked the gameplay. I would rent this first before you buy it.
The game play is fun and the controls are so much better than the original game. The story/plot are very fun and it is great to dive into the lore of the Star Wars universe.
However, the game is "over" at the half way point. I fear that the game was half-way developed and then EA pulled the plug. There are rumors that Force 3 was cancelled and that Lucas Arts is pulling everything in house.
So this game is good for about 4 hours of entertainment. Easy to blow through on a rainy afternoon.

The first one was definitely a fun game and had some length to it. In the first one there were "bosses" when you fought some of the Jedi. In this one, there is really one 2 bosses.? It was a really short game. I beat it in 2 days only playing for a combined 5 hours. I even took my time gathering certain things. I'm sure they will come out with add-ons, but I won't be buying any. They should have already been included in this $60 short game. If your renting that is perfect, rent it and return it within a week. It really is somewhat fun and they have a couple newer powers for the main character.
