this game was so short it makes weeman look tall it only took me around 4 hours to beat and i wasnt even really trying. i mean the gameplay was fun and all and the story was...... interesting but it seems that force unleashed 2 should have been a DLC rather than an entirely other game it in my opinion should have been either cheaper than the normally designated 60 dollars down to around 40 or 30ish but all i have to say is that i feel sad for the people who basically threw away $60 into around 3-10 hours of gameplay maybe more depending on skill level. this was just sad and they better just hurry up and finish battlefront 3 because i know all star wars fans are waiting for the sequel to come out because battlefront is one of their most popular titles but it seems to have stalled in recent years because they are just releasing the newer ones for PSP and it makes the quality of them sub par because it is a less graphically oriented device unlike the console games systems which have far more potential than handhelds
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.
