Good

Not for angry people

This is my first review of a game so give me some credit if you think this review is no good (I'm new at it). When I first got this game I was very pleased, the combat in this game is very nice and the boss fights can be hard (which I say is a good thing). At times the force grip ability can be not as respondant as you want it to be but is stilll good. But as you go on later in the game you will become more frustrated on why you can't kill the big storm troopers. This game gets very frustrating. You'll be doing part's over and over again wondering why you can't finish that part. If you have problems with throwing down controllers, you will be doing that alot. So if your that kind of person and your xbox + controllers are in bad shape, I wouldn't rent this for the sake of your Xbox. Otherwise it is a good rent. Hope you like it. Just as I have (till I got very frustrated).
p.s.= I was doing hard mode.

No! Not the rock! The droid, target the droid. Oh, I don't have any force power left. Another dead Sith apprentice. Yea, I get to watch the stupid cut scene again since I can't skip it... No! Not the rock! Arrgh!!!

This game could have been awesome. Unfortunately, it has one fatal flaw and it is fatal for all wanna-be Sith. The game wants to target anything except what matters. This amounts to hours of frustration rather than entertainment.

Thank you again Gamefly for preventing me from wasting money on an unplayable game which got undeserved high marks in most reviews

Awful Game

This game has everything in it that I hate. Buggy third person camera? Check. Platform jumping to fall to your death? Check. Endless enemies that appear from no where even after you clear the area? Check. Awkward targeting? Check. Cliche timed button presses for "boss" battles? You bet. The only redeeming quality of this game is that it's visually appealing. If you want to look at star wars, rent the movie, if you want a good game play experience, buy a different game.
