This review is from: Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition - PC (Video Game)
First off this review is for the PC platform. This game has great graphics and a great story line. Your force powers are allot more powerful. Also it appears to run flawlessly, no patches etc. Great cut-scenes. But make no mistake it's a console game worked over so it runs on a PC. I got it hoping it would be like Jedi academy but it's not. Don't get me wrong for the most part it's a real fun game, but you might want to invest in console game controller for you computer so you can get past the star destroyer part. Or maybe a trackball. You'll see what I mean, it's a little tough with a mouse.
I kinda of hate to give this game three stars but I have to. The main reason is the fact that when you come to a boss, the camera zooms out and stays there just like your watching it in a stadium. Also just when your about to kill the boss the screen will flash the letters that you have to press at just the right time in order to finish killing him. Kinda like entering a code. So instead of getting to watch yourself kill him, you have to stare at the bottom of the screen, and hope you press the right letters. If you don't it restarts the last part of the fight.
I know every game has something about it somebody doesn't like. But this game has to many little things that add up to allot, and can make it kinda frustrating to play at times. Again, overall it's a fun game, especially the second time through because you get to keep your force powers you earned. If you liked Jedi academy or any of the other Star Wars Jedi games you might want to wait a little while till the price drops before buy this one.

I think if they want to "port" it to a PC they need to optimize it for the PC or not port it at all. If I wanted a console gaem, I'd buy a console, if I wanted a PC game I'd want to know the truth about it and then pass it up if it is like you said.

I play this game on both Xbox 360 and PC and agree with the reviewer that a controller will enhance gameplay on a PC. It is a fun game overall - especially when you are using force push and pull in creative way, but light saber duel is a dissapointment when compared to Jedi Academy.

I have the corsair gaming mouse with programmable keyboard buttons on the side, you think that would help?

I wish there was a demo for the PC, I want to witness the controls for myself before shelling out money. I played the XBox demo and the controls sucked on it too, especially the camera. seriously, would a track ball be better or is that just a joke?
