A little more detail:
1) This is a sequel, it feels like a sequel and behaves like one. It should have been a $10 DLC pack for the first game. Only the additional game play mechanics make it notable as a new offering.
2) It is SHORT. maybe six hours of game play.
3.) Level design: The levels feel rushed and poorly put together. There is a lot of repetition. There aren't a lot of puzzles. The few puzzles are present are accompanied by someone saying "DO THIS TO SOLVE THE PUZZLE!" without giving the player a chance to solve the problem themselves.
All in all not worth the special edition price.
Not worth buying at all in fact.
Gameplay: A lot has changed, yet hasn't here. The Force Unleashed 2 puts you as Starkiller once again, but now he is a dual wielding beast. Despite two sabers many of his moves have not changed they simply have become stronger. The big change here is targeting and force powers. *Targeting is improved to a level where I didn't even have to use the lock on feature for bosses and harder foes like in the first. *Force powers are now much more responsive to use. Even Force Grip is streamline. There is no need to fight with the controller anymore to get the direction you want something to go. The mechanics work fine with the flow of the game now, in fact to a point where starkiller feels god-like. *Upgrading force powers is back but you start with all force abilities except Repulse and Saber throw (you earn those fairly quickly though). However, force combos and upgrades for starkiller have been removed. The leveling change almost made the first one feel like an RPG. Holocrons are back but now serve as a way to upgrade your health/force bars, experience and of course unlock light saber crystals. Crystals now have a built in power attribute(unlike the first game, which had color and power crystals). Example, Jedi Green = health regen White = more Exp pts earned Blue = Force regen etc
Sound/Story: The sound effects are on par with the last game. More refined but overall the same. The story ...uh... no comment? Okay okay... if you are getting this game for the storyline I would suggest you pass big time. The storyline borderlines on annoying and illogical. I wont give it away of course, but don't expect the story to be nearly half as good as from the first game.
Graphics/Presentation: The graphics are amazing. The first game looked good but these look really polished and smooth. Force powers have a great definition. You can see them interact with the environment and bend through air or release shockwaves. The presentation of the game however is lacking I think. I even went in expecting it to be structured a little like the first, with more fluidity. Instead the game essentially has you go to point A.. then it is 'Force Unleash' yourself to the goal and then a really stupid story element makes you go someplace else .. rinse and repeat. There is no revisiting the same map all over again (exception of vader's base but it looks totally different compared to the first level you did there aka the tutorial)
Length/Replay: Short... 5hrs maybe 6 if you decide to be a holocron hunter (it pays to find them though as you get tons of saber crystals, and health/force energy reserve). You can easily beat this game in one sitting. The replay value though is probably better than the first. The game doesn't bog you down with long cut-scenes mid-map or choke points. Instead you go straight for the goal and hack n' slash.. blow up, mind trick etc everyone in your path. A second playthrough using fully maxed force is just to much fun especially finding ways to blow up stuff or simply force push lv 3 a hallway and watch the entire hallway just blow apart. There is also an added challenge mode that on 360/ps3 it syncs up with everyone else on the network and ranks you. Earning medals unlocks experience, crystals, costumes etc. Some of these challenges can be quite addictive.
Summary of "cons" I have for this game (with positive re-enforcement)
- Storyline was absolutely butchered in my opinion. They should really just branch outside of the yoda, emperor, vader, luke etc universe of star wars and explore some custom stories at this point (nothing really positive to say)
- Less focus on advancement. You basically fight your way through things simple as that. All your combos are given to you via saber upgrades so no need to save up points for moves etc. [makes it more relaxing to play through. Simply gain exp by destroying stuff ^_^ less focus on finding holocrons for pts to level up with]
Overall Score: 81% (88% if you are a TRUE star wars fan! May the force be with you!)
If you enjoyed the first you will enjoy this game especially if you showed up to own some Empire clones. There is no load screens anymore (unless you die) and menu access is smooth and quick. The Force Unleashed 2 pretty much amounts to "The Force Unleashed + polishing combat mechanics/force powers - storyline" = ??? what it equals is your call in the end. For me, I can play this game over and over just like I did with Jedi Academy
Wow I just realized I never actually hit on the Collectors Edition with this review. at Full price $79.99 the CE was definitely not worth the money. You get a silly little USB stick that looks ugly. Never tested to see if it worked. It just was ugly, uncomfortable in your hand and would just look downright silly attached to anything (is a free USB stick though but you can get an 8GB one for what $10. This is just 2GB. You get a special CE costume (which honestly was pointless and didn't look all that good) and a set of saber crystals which I really never had any use for as the ones in game provided me with better balance. Overall the CE was a giant waste of money.
USB Stick(20%) - Can get 4x the size for $10 and the one you buy will probably look better
Saber Crystals (35%) - adds a new color to your sabers + double damage yet not really needed as you want to use the in game crystals since they will help you regen health and force power, or incinerate enemies etc
DLC challenges (60%) - Kinda sorta worth it. They are fun but for only so long.
Steel Case (100%) - who doesn't love a sexy steel case design!
Anyhow steel case aside, this is just a total waste of your money. For $20 extra you can just pass and get the regular game. The game is not bad at all. Better than the first I feel; but the CE was a major letdown as was the storyline of the game.
Great looking metallic case and items. I am a fan of the game, so I may be a little bias.
Graphics are great for the PS3
Great voice overs for character
- I have not beaten the game yet but it is a good story
- the images from the flash drive are not that different. I think they could have done better instead of copying and pasting the same character in different backgrounds.
