The funniest thing about this whole experience was I took a break from playing new vegas (becuase i was getting tired of bugs) only to run into this game which had just as many problems as new vegas! Spefically the part of the game in the hanger (thats not a spoiler dont worry, I would kill someone only to have them float in mid air then i had storm troopers run at me shooting at me while they were floating 30 feet in the air. Normall haha funny but the game wouldnt progress until you killed everyone, i litteraly had to do a force explosion to get all the enemys into one area & the area is huge. This took me 45 minutes by far the longest part of the game.

Pros:
-It looked nice
-gameplay was still fun, when it wasnt freezing or glitchy

Cons:
-Bugs bugs bugs
-Absolutely whatsoever no story, you could have summed up the "story" in two sentinces.
-The game lasted just over 4 hours
-No new "moves" same ol same ol
-Game seems unfinished, seemed like they were just preparing for DLC's of this game to me.

Awesome game, just like the first, but was by far one of the shortest games i've beat in a while which is why i scored it a 7. I would say a good 8 hours of gameplay (tops) and you'll have this one beat....one more reason to remind me of why i'm glad i use gamefly over buying these games new. I would otherwise be livid had i paid $60 for something that took me a weekend of casual gameplay to beat.

Very good game indeed, I like how the developers got rid of the old upgrading system that took forever to load. Now you just press the select button to upgrade powers and the start button for lightsaber and costume changes and it comes right up. The only additions to your powers that I noticed were mind trick and force fury. With mind trick, you can make an enemy turn on his team. Force fury muliples your power and makes you almost unstoppable. The gameplay is pretty much the same with a few tweaks here and there. It plays a lot smoother and you don't get stuck in phantom corners anymore. The game looks a lot smoother and the camera follows a lot better. The story felt generic for some reason. The story "seemed" really short compared to the first installment. The levels are pretty long but there is only nine of them. I am hoping that more levels will be available for download in the future. There is replay value to the game as you can keep your current power levels and take them into the next game, making it so much better. There are four different difficulty levels that you can try, with the unleashed level being locked when you first receive the game. There is an added mode called Challenges, which adds to the play value of the game. In Challenges, you complete different tasks that are placed before you and get ranked on the time that you are able to finish it. I really enjoyed that all of the endings leave an opening for another installment. In the end, if you are looking for a good action game to rent, you will want to pick this up, you may end up buying it.
