I am not a professional game reviewer so I can leave out all the "innovative, artistical and technical and maybe historical" aspect of the game (in other words, all the BS out).
The game is fun. Combat is fast paced and action packed. Story is ok, not the God of War like epicness, but by no mean Ninja Gaiden like "now that we are done with the game, lets put a story". Story gives you a good excuse to go out and dish out the force and lightsaver swings.
There are a couple of flaws that fellow gamers may find to warrant the game a lower score: camera is bad, targeting is equally annoying, and some units are "cheap". In my experience, I got used to the camera/targeting, so as the game progressed, they became a much lesser issue.
Gradual progression of powers/combos through the point system, paired with the simple custom/lightsaver customization which provide a small extra stuff, and interesting enemy units/boss battles kept me entertained throughout the game.
Now I'll admit, I didn't play through the whole game, I played to the fourth level, but I found the game to be very repetitive. When speaking with a friend about the game, he mentioned that most games are like that (kind of true), but the story keeps you into it.
The best way to describe Force Unleashed is that if you are a Star Wars mark, to give it a shot because you'll love it. If you love beat 'em up games, but aren't a huge Star Wars fan (like myself), then maybe rent it. To me, most beat 'em ups are the best when they are co-op, and with this being a single player game, you can give it a shot if you are looking for something fast and easy.

This game is great and a lot of fun, there is so much you can do, there is a lot of powers that the characters can use every character has different powers. When you finish a story mode with one character and when you start a new story mode with a different character the story mode is a little different. You should really rent it and play it, because its really AWESOME!!!!!!!!
