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. 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 face s 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 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Awesome force power! September 21, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, so I have to agree with the other review here that the game is kind of lacking in that god-like power we kind of figured we'd be able to experience from the intro (I wanted to sink a star destroyer and not from just a cut-scene. Still, you get to knock around some TIE fighters). The Force Unleashed is still a pretty cool game, however.

I'm a big fan of "Jedi Academy", so I was expecting it to play a bit more like that (it really felt like you had more choices in Jedi Academy). This game is VERY linear, and you won't get a chance to just go explore any planet you feel like (I was kind of hoping a guy could get to hang out in the Star Wars universe a little) and it seems EVERY bad guy has a shield up. Even in Jedi Academy you could take down a storm trooper with a little light-saber action. In this game, you kind of have to hack at 'em a bit.

I'm still pretty addicted to this game. The ability to customize so many different force powers is awesome, as is finding different color crystals/hilts for your light saber and costume changes. I beat the game as a sith (didn't really mean to, I guess I headed too close to Darth Vader and the game seemed to think I wanted that ending) with left kind of a massive hole in the plot of any of the Star Wars films. It does let you continue back to the beginning with all of your powers (which is pretty darn cool), but I have to admit I was kind of hoping for something a bit more from this game. It had so much potential!

I guess if I could offer a little advice for the next one, it would be nice to have a few more choices on the fate of the character and if this guy is supposed to be a massively-powerful sith, why is everybody else tougher to kill?

If I could offer any tips to other players, ramping up your lightning skills really helps wipe out hordes of Storm Troopers (and others you encounter)!

4.0 out of 5 stars LucasArts Unleashes Another Winner September 25, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a casual gamer, I found this game outstanding. Although not flawless, it delivers a great storyline, top notch graphics, excellent combat dynamics, and remarkable playability. The combat revolves almost solely around your Force powers-- you can throw ANYthing at an enemy, distant choke holds, hurl devastating lightning, impale enemies on your lightsaber, this is some seriously cool stuff!! There is a gliche here and there; once and a while during a boss battle, if you get cornered, the camera may get confused, and you'll find yourself turned around, and I've had the character--not the game-- freeze up once or twice, but when I did a restart, everything was saved. I can live with that. All in all, a great, great game. If you love the Star Wars Mythos, and still play on a PS2, buy this-- at $39.98, it's a real bargain. Although I suspect the XBOX, or PS3 version is even better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome game! (but I expected more) October 22, 2008
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
A very fun game In my opinion. but if you look at the next-gen versions you will notice that you hold your lightsaber in the shien style (backwards) so, yeah I was kind of expecting to be able to hold your lightsaber in a new way. but later you unlock a move where you jump, spin in the air and hack at your enemy holding your lightsaber BACKWARDS! also, sometimes in finishers and cutscenes you hold it like that.
but I think that the ragdoll physics are overall very good. the graphics are OKAY compared to Oh, say Spider-man 2 and HORRENDUS compared to gran turismo 4. although many people complain that when in the first level (playing as darth vader) the walking only thing is lame! I disagree it makes perfect sense Darth Vader is just trying to conserve is energy, and besides that he has robotic legs so naturally, would you want to run when you can walk and you have all the time in the world? and about Darth Vader's single jump, well thats partly because you don't need to jump in that level and partly because Darth Vader cannot use force jump A.K.A. double jump(if you notice secret apprentice CAN). I personally LOVE the button mashing sequences along with the finishers. and I think esrb made a mistake not listing "blood" in the content descriptors (for an example, when you kill Maris Brood's bull rancor it's practically covered in blood). overall, this deserves the "Greatest Hits" title.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but lacks... well, a lot. December 31, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a relatively new gamer, and this was one of the first games I bought. Awesome God Like Powers? Lightsabers? The Ability to chuck stormtroopers around like dolls? I was so there.

I beat the game in approximately 8 hours (not non-stop). I was hoping for something that I could continue to play for hours, explore some fun worlds, and then finally win. The game play was fun, electrocuting your enemies is always enjoyable, and tossing them off the death star was pretty much just awesome. But the boss battles were infinitely annoying. The use of the specific buttons to finally finish the dang things, instead of just wailing on the boss until he died was frustrating.

All in all, a fun game, but I wouldn't pay full price for it, and I'm kinda glad I didn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun game. October 14, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Overall, this game was fun. It is too early to tell if this game will have the lasting power to be entertaining as "Star Wars Battlefront." I have played that game repeatedly over the years long after it was bought. The high point to "Force Unleashed" for me is the graphics. The Force offensive moves are fun to play and watch, but one is locked into a certain progression of scenes. One can't for example play once fight scene over and over. One can't jump from one favorite scene to another one separated by other scenes like one can in "Star Wars Battlefront." However, I did find "Force Unleashed" entertaining. One can't also skip over the explainatory video scenes which are fun to watch in the beginning, but irritating to have to watch again when one is well familiar with the story line. One can upgrade their powers nicely without a lot of difficulty and to play the more complicated moves, one does not have complicated button combinations. However, one can not increase the difficulty to make the game interesting as one's skills improve. Overall, I liked the game and am still playing it even though I bought it when it first came out.
