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.

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.

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.

I'd like to preface my review by saying this is a great game. Everything you've ever wanted to be able to do in a Star Wars as a Jedi is in here. It's simply great.

Pros: As already stated, it's great when it comes to Jedi Powers. You can use lightning, force push, force field, deflect lasers, and the list goes on. Also, you can bust out some pretty crazy combos to infict tons of damage. It has a pretty long storyline and in-depth as well. You can also choose whether to be a Jedi or Sith in the end, although this decision is rather subtle. In fact, I wasn't really aware that I was actively choosing my path. I believe it has something to do with the holocrons (aka unlockables and powerups) you pick up - there are both Jedi and Sith holocrons. There are also tutorials on all your skills so beginners can get a hang of the controls easily too. The interactive environment that they designers created for your Jedi to explore is pretty great. Since this game was built for the newer systems, the graphics are spectacular as well.

Cons: Most importantly, replayability - or rather, a lack thereof. As soon as you finish this game, you will never want to pick it up again. Since the only mode is campaign, you'll definitely not play through that again. Each level there are certain objectives that must be met in order to advance the storyline (with a few bonus objectives on the side). As soon as you beat the game, you're definitely not going to want to go back and do the same exact objectives again on the same levels. Also, although I mentioned graphics in the Pros section, it goes in the Cons as well. This is because the environment they created for this game also has a few flaws. There are quite a few places I was able to get to that seemed as though I should not have been able to.

I felt that this game was a real treat, this does not mean that there are not areas or aspects of it that could have been more refined.

The story itself is fresh and engrossing, I liked the way it started and developed, as some others have said, the ending can be open ended and leave you desiring something more. However with this ending it allows you also allows you to make a choice, the only significant one, and determine your rewards before perhaps attempting the more challenging difficulties.

I too agree that even though the game is a whirlwind and sweeps you away, that's all the more reason it is over far, far too quickly.

To sum it up in general:

-The graphics are excellent.
-The storyline is fresh and interesting, albeit absolutely linear.
-The mechanics are superb, with one detrimental flaw, targeting.
-The soundtrack/effects are true to the genre and well done.
-The dialog and voice acting are very well done, notable actors were used.

I highly recommend this game for anyone, even those who are not fans of the genre. The playstyle and mechanics, aside from targeting, are enough to draw any action/adventure gamer.

The only two gripes I had with this game were as mentioned before, the targeting and then the length of the game. The targeting is something one can adapt to and learn to work around, unfortunately once you've managed that and mastered your abilities as a sith the game is basically over. There is a rather high replay value all in all, perhaps on a more difficult setting and to gather all the hidden items; although this all depends on whether or not you can master the faulted targeting system.

We can only hope that a sequel was intended, and if so, that it is already underway....It would continue the abrupt ending and give us yet another adventure as a jedi, sith or otherwise.
