The Star Wars saga will continue in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, a videogame developed by LucasArts, which casts players as Darth Vader's "Secret Apprentice" and promises to unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. The expansive story, created under direction from George Lucas, is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In it, players will assist the iconic villain in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi - and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny.

As its name implies, The Force Unleashed completely re-imagines the scope and scale of the Force by taking full advantage of newly developed technologies that will be seen and experienced for the first time: Digital Molecular Matter (DMM), by Pixelux Entertainment, and euphoria by NaturalMotion Ltd. Paired with the powerful Havok Physics™ system, these new technologies create gameplay only possible on the new generation of consoles. DMM incorporates the physical properties of anything in the environment so that everything reacts exactly like it should - wood breaks like wood, glass shatters like glass, plants on the planet Felucia bend like plants on the planet Felucia would, and more. Meanwhile, as a revolutionary behavioral-simulation engine, euphoria enables interactive characters to move, act and even think like actual human beings, adapting their behavior on the fly and resulting in a different payoff every single time.


Game Features:
  • During the period between Episodes III and IV, players hunt Jedi in the role of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice.
  • Unleash and upgrade the Secret Apprentice's four core Force powers - Force push, grip, repulse and lightning - throughout the course of the game, and combine them for ultra-destructive, never-before-seen combos.
  • Examples of unleashing the Force in ways never thought possible:
    • The Secret Apprentice won't just Force push enemies into walls - he'll Force push enemies through walls.
    • The Secret Apprentice won't just Force grip foes to throw them aside - he'll Force grip them in midair, zap them with lightning, then drop them to the ground to explode like a bomb.
  • In addition to new adversaries created just for the game, such as fugitive Jedi and Force-sensitive Felucians, players will also confront and associate with familiar faces from the Star Wars films, including Darth Vader.
  • Visit locations such as Episode III's Wookiee homeworld Kashyyyk and the floral Felucia, the junk planet Raxus Prime, plus an Imperial TIE fighter construction facility.
  • The Force Unleashed is LucasArts' first internally developed title for next-generation consoles, and it represents the first in-game collaboration of talents and technology between LucasArts and Industrial Light & Magic, two companies now finally under one roof at the new Letterman Digital Arts Center in San Francisco's Presidio district.
  • The Force Unleashed debuts Digital Molecular Matter from Pixelux and euphoria behavioral simulation from NaturalMotion Ltd.
  • LucasArts is preparing an unprecedented promotional effort around the launch of The Force Unleashed, encompassing a full line of toys and game-based action figures from Hasbro, as well as a full publishing program from Dark Horse, Del Rey and Palace Press.

Meet the Cast
The Star Wars Saga will continue in 2008 with LucasArts' biggest-ever video game event. Set during the "dark times" between Episodes III and IV, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed portrays the previously untold story of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice -- and now you can put a face to that mysterious character as well as the major supporting cast members as LucasArts unveils the actors set to star in The Force Unleashed.

The Cast of The Force Unleashed

The New Technology of The Force Unleashed
With The Force Unleashed, LucasArts not only introduces a new chapter in the Star Wars saga, but also two completely new and innovative technologies -- Digital Molecular Matter by Pixelux Entertainment and euphoria by NaturalMotion Ltd. These groundbreaking technologies combine with Havoc physics to create true next-gen gameplay and the Force like it's never been seen or experienced before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works for me September 19, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Pros
- Good story and voice acting
- The visuals are magnificent- I found my self looking outside of Cloud City rather than killing stormtroopers at one point
- When you fight a jedi boss the game switches to a wide-angle pulled-back cinematic camera reminiscent of the duel between Dokku, Obiwan and Anakin in Revenge of the Sith. This is one of the best ways I've seen of taking advantage of the HD screen format and resolution. When you Force push your enemy across the room it really does remind you a lot of the movies.
- Sound track is good- some new themes and old themes are enhanced.
- Even though NPCs appear to have the ability to block your force powers or lightsaber blows, each one of them has a particular weakness you can exploit - so it's not really a problem

Cons
- Locking on to objects is sometimes clumsy- PsiOps did it much better
- A few bugs here and there
- As compared to say Jedi Outcast / Academy it doesn't have as rich a Force upgrade mechanism- mainly because the story doesn't really lend itself to it
- Camera needs to be manually adjusted frequently
- Too short
- There are some frustrating jumping puzzles - especially with a problematic camera

Considering I've been waiting since Jedi Academy for another Star Wars game, and the fact that the average budget for a video game is over $40 Million, spending $60 on a decent Star Wars game seems like a bargain to me. I have no complaints.

Comparison to the Wii version:

- Wii version uses canned Star Wars musical score. Reminds you of playing the old Jedi Power Battles game.
- Wii controls are quite well thought out and does make Force wielding fun.
- But over time the Wii interaction does tend to get fatiguing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Should have been a great one but..... September 17, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is pretty good but could have, and should have been great but as usual they just decided to get too cute. Using the force powers to dangle stormtroopers in the air, throw them around, and hit them with lightning (as seen in the trailers) is lots of fun for a while but that doesn't even come close to making up for all the areas of the game where the designers just thought it would be funny to frustrate the crap out of us. FYI...NOT A LOT OF SITH LORDS SPEND 20 MINUTES TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO CROSS A FREAKING JUNK PILE!!!! Oh and how the hell does a junked robot steal the force energy from me?!! Oh how I dreamed of the day when I could become a sith lord and fight a giant junk robot and spend a solid hour doing stupid jump puzzles and falling into lava. Why? Why do people think it's funny to frustrate us? The game has a great storyline,almost as good as KOTOR, but that doesn't make up for the glitches and frustrations. After not even 3 days of owning it, I beat the game despite the frustrations and glitches, that tells me they were a little short on content for it to have been hyped for so long.Don't misunderstand, this is a must have for any Star Wars fan, but it is not worth the 59.99 price tag and doesn't live up to the hype. Wait for the price to drop to at least 39.99 and then get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game, few glitches September 22, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is my first review, so here is goes.
Great story, it really ties in Star Wars III and IV well. If you really pay attention to the cut scenes and story line, it tells a great story of the creation of the rebellion alliance. The graphics in the game are rich with very vivid color. The game play is really good, but it takes a little to get use to. The targeting system may not seem to be very effective at first, but once you get use to it (must control Starkiller, not camera to target) it's very effective. At first I was having trouble getting good combat combos in on enemies; they would interrupt my combo and knock me down. Once I learned to block effectively and jump at the correct time, I was able to do some fantastic combos. Once thing that is frustrating is you can't target different enemies (change targets) while you are blocking. It seems you have to learn how combat/targeting works in this game, it's a bit different then other games you may be use to, but once you master it, you will be unstoppable. You can customize your lightsaber with different colors and power (very fun). Once you complete the game you carry over all of the increased force powers and lightsaber colors and power you acquired in your first run. You can really do some awesome combos in the begging of your second run through the game that were previously locked.
There are a few glitches in the game. After the 3rd level or so, if you look at the mission objectives, it reports your force points and Holocron count, you have acquired in that level, as 0. I have found that this is just a reporting error, your force points and holocron's still count. It gets frustrating when you want to keep track of how many holocron's you have collected in a level and how may you have left to get.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun...until it gets too frustrating. December 15, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
"Star Wars: The Force Unleashed" had the potential to be a great game: incredible graphics, interesting story, and the whole Star Wars universe to work with. While the game comes out looking fantastic, it's ruined by horrible playability. Simply put: this game is what I have always feared RPG games would be. The camera has a hard time following you; I died numerous times simply because the camera shifted to where both the Apprentice AND his opponent weren't on-screen. And the controls are sluggish; if you want to strike with your light saber, you have to anticipate when you'll use it, and press the button about a second in advance (in case you're wondering, your enemies don't have the same hesitation). And don't even think of trying to swing your light saber while in midair; you will simply hang in the air, executing an impressive-looking combo, while your enemies are free to shoot you at their leisure.

Maybe it was just the system I played on (PS3), but "The Force Unleashed" had far too many flaws for my taste. Get this: there's the option to save during a game, at any time you want...but you can't load from where you saved, you can only load from where the game automatically saved you (which isn't always in a logical spot; I walked away after spending a couple hours trying to defeat a difficult character--thanks, crappy camera--and then, when I finally beat it, I died immediately afterward by falling into a pit because the camera couldn't keep up with me, and had to start over BEFORE the battle). The loading time, too, is unbelievably slow; and you have to load a lot--there are even loading times to go between menu options!

Ultimately, I feel let down by "The Force Unleashed." Is it an incredible-looking game? Oh yes. Is it fun?
