I just picked mine up today and let me say the Collector's Edition is quite disappointing. First, there is only 1 disc in the steel case, not two as pictured. The steel case itself is pretty cheap and lightweight, as opposed to previous steel case releases. It feels like a aluminum pop can, and probably can be dented quite as easily. The outer case holding everything together is pretty cheap, and the plastic scratches easily, causing the outer artwork to come off. Over time, the outer case's artwork will deteriorate with wear and tear. So basically, you get a cheap steel case, a flash drive and piece of paper with codes for the added content for an extra $15-$20 depending on where you buy it. Collector's edition it is not.
Having been a gamer for a long time, and a huge fan of Star Wars, I was really looking forward to this game. Add in that the first game re-ignited my passion for Star Wars, I thought this game was going to be a MUST!
I was severely wrong.
They made improvements on the targetting system, the graphics, and incorporated some interesting ideas into the saber crystal system.
The new XP system is a little easier to deal with, than the previous level system.
The secondary lightsaber makes for some interesting ideas.
Very little actual story, amounting to about 20 minutes.
Game play is about 5-8 hours, IF you are trying to find everything, and not skipping the few story scenes. There is no online multi-player component to justify such a lack, unless you count the challenge levels.
The Force Fury system allows you to increase your powers, but really does little, besides being able to beat certain enemies with your force powers, that you would have to use your lightsabers, instead.
Beyond a couple of enemies that you HAVE to use your lightsabers to fight (if you fight them without using Force Fury), you can pretty much walk through almost all levels, using only your force powers.
The promises made by Julio Torres (LucasArts Executive Producer on the game), about this being Starkiller's version of 'The Empire Strikes Back' are very much unfulfilled, as this game is little more than a glorified 'Hack-and-slash', with Force Powers.
The challenge levels are not very challenging.
The interesting ideas I refered to about the second lightsaber, were not taken advantage of, except when using the grab that uses the lightsabers.Read more ›
I recommend NOT buying the collectors edition. The challenge levels aren't nearly as much fun as the campaign, so you are essentially paying the extra money for a 2GB USB drive. Of course, it is a pretty sweet USB drive...
That being said, this is a VERY pretty game. The graphics are much improved, and the environments are as interactive as you've come to expect from this series. The thing that got me the most, is that many of the cutscenes are rendered using the game's engine, so when you see Starkiller interacting with whoever he is in a given scene, he's wearing whatever costume you put him in prior to the start of it.
Basically, I'll put it this way. If you're not a Star Wars fan (and even more specifically, not a Force Unleashed fan), this game deserves a rental at best. If you ARE a Star Wars fan, you should get this game.
Also? A quick note; There was some trouble surrounding the pre-order and Collector's Edition bonus content, with people's codes not working and such. This should hopefully all be sorted out soon.
Unfortunately, the game was a bit short, and that's why it gets only 4 stars overall. Granted each stage was quite long, there were only three of them. Escape from Kamino>Cato Nemoidia>Return to Kamino.
I also like the little Starkiller flash drive. It makes me want to purchase one of the other characters available in the Mimobot flash drive collection.
You can also download extra content via xBox live. I haven't gotten a chance to obtain the content yet, but the fact that it is available is also pretty neat.
If you are an avid Star Wars fan and collector, I highly recommend this Collector's Edition. Short game or not, it's well worth it.
