I beat the game the night I got it... in just a few hours. The first game was too short, this one is basically a joke. I don't understand the production company here... the shortness of the first game was probably the biggest complaint. Why would they make the sequel even shorter? I've played demos that were longer than this (and they were free). This is probably part of why the story suffered so much... it was too rushed and made to be a little farcical. About that:
The story is very haphazardly put together and pretty cliche, even for an IP that has many cliche game stories. All your amazing power and you are just a clone. That isn't much of a spoiler, since it's in the demo and in the first minute of the game. Are the three flashes of memory you have your own? (Yep, that's about how much development the plot has.) Well, let's not bother with that yet -- let's just save the girl we think we might have fallen for in 10 minutes flat (hey, we beat Anakin's record!) and we might have maybe left behind when we may have sacrificed ourselves in that event that might have happened to us. Why not, it'll be fun right? What makes the story even worse is the awful dialogue. I got so sick of hearing Kota gripe that I wasn't doing something fast enough. His inane instructions were equally annoying, because I always knew what needed to be done before he opened his mouth.
The combat starts out feeling smooth and fun.Read more ›
Fast forward to the Force Unleashed II. Most of the control issues have been fixed. A lot of the graphical hiccups have been adjusted as well. The game looks and plays very well, but not great - no wear near the level of a game like God of War III. The force powers have been upgraded, dual lightsabers look great and sith fury is just awesome. The targeting system has been vastly upgraded, so there is less blasting plants or walls when you are trying to hit an enemy. At the same time, you still get trapped in your animations and can be carried away from enemies or off of ledges. Even with those gripes, there is far more polish here than on the original.
Unfortunately, the story is sadly lacking. Where I was compelled to see what happened, excited to see familiar faces and square off with The Emperor; here it was just kind of...meh.
Many of the reviews claim the game can be completed in 5-6 hours. That is true, on easy, not completing many of the "tasks" to fully complete the game. That said; if you're not into trophy collections and collecting various items for your costume, combos, etc., Force Unleashed II is probably a rental. If you enjoy playing through several times to get every last dime out of your purchase and don't mind waiting for the inevitable DLC or must own all things Star Wars, than this is a nice addition to the catalogue. Good, not great, wholly unremarkable.
Let me try to illustrate how short this game is. My and my hubby played through the entire game in 3 and a half hours, and let me tell you that we are not good players, we play for the story so a real gamer could probably do it in one and a half hours. Now I know what you are thinking with a storyline so short there have to be multi player, different game play modes, anything to make this game's entertainment value last for more than a few hours, well no there is not, there are a few challenges and a handful of trophies to unlock and that is it. When we finished this game and the credits begun to roll me and hubby actually tried to restart from the last checkpoint as we first believed there had to be some glitch, that it was not possible for a full prized Playstation 3 game to be this short, when we realized there where no glitch we just felt cheated. Yes that is right, I would go so far as to call this game a scam to harvest money of the popularity of the first game while providing no content for the second one.Read more ›

I have not beat this game yet, and I would say I have played it for about 5 hours so far (So I am probably very close, according to other reviews) but let me just say how BORING... Read morePublished 6 days ago by Ozcomz
Really enjoyed the game so far, lots of fun to play. Received with no damage on the package and was still new for sure.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
Serious lack of content, and at some points it seems like the creators got lazy but it's fun for a few hours. Wouldn't suggest the game if you want multiple playthroughs.Published 2 months ago by Paradox
