Weak

A Sad Disappointment

I loved the first game even with it's faults while most gamers and critical reviewers weren't thrilled overall. I still own it. This sequel though is below the par set by The Force Unleashed 1.

The Good:
-The graphics look better
-Almost no screen tearing this time
-Much better game performance overall
-Classic Star Wars Music
-Epic Cutscenes
-Voice acting is pretty good

The Bad
-Short story mode
-Story isn't satisfying and doesn't achieve anything
-Saber combo input isn't as forgiving as last game
-Saber combat in general isn't worth the effort to master now
-Having two sabers is pointless
-Whats the point of the challenge rooms when the game takes 6 hours to beat on hard?

The Ugly
-Yoda level should have just been a longer cutscene
-Any of the questions you had from the previous game aren't answered nor does this game answer it's own questions
-Starkiller's force usage is laughably crazy now
-Most enemies have force immunities which doesn't even make sense
-Most power upgrades are ho hum, force rage is broken
-Darth Vader LORD OF THE SITH, is a pushover

I would give the The Force Unleashed 1 a 7/10, this game I have to give it a 4/10. It just doesn't add to the franchise and isn't fun most of the time. If it was DLC for the first game it would have fared better. Selling this game for 60 dollars was criminal. Just glad I only rented it.

Excellent

Great Game: Too Short

This is a great game, but suffers from its length the same as the original Force Unleashed did.

Pros:
-Stunning graphics, MUCH better than the original
-Enthralling storyline that leaves you on edge in some parts
-Fun game-play, you won't want to put down the controller
-Sequel Potential: They left an OBVIOUS continuation for TFU3

Cons:
-The game is way to short. The final boss battle with Vader should have been the half-way point in the game.
-Sometimes the game is extremely difficult, even on the lower difficulties.

Overall a great game. Definitely worth buying!

This is a great game and I can't wait for the third one.
This continues the story from the first game. You have more abilities and enemies. You also fight Darth Vader.
SPOILER ALERT IF YOU DON"T WANT ME TO RUIN THE GAME DON'T READ THE REST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At the end of the game you have two options kill Darth Vader or let him live. I did both kill him and you find out the cloning worked let him live and you don't find out. I wonder if that with carry into the next game if they make one.
