Time for a game review, but I’ll do it a bit differently: I will give you my rating first, then a reason behind it 🙂 (oh, this was played on xbox360 btw)
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed gets
Graphics: 9/10 – brilliant enviroments and cuts scenes
Using the force: 4/10 – fecking annoying to aim properly
Story: 8/10 – does keep you interested – I actually want to watch them and not skip 😉
Game play: 5/10
- Regarding the difficulty level, some creatures are easy enough to kill, whereas others are suddenly REALLY hard. The thing is, this is not as the game progresses, this is all at the same time.
- I also found it a bit difficult to figure out what I was meant to do or where to go. The detailed enviroments are nice, but if you walk too far or jump to a ledge that looks like you can jump on it, you suddenly die cause “you’re not meant to be there“.
- But the real thorn for me was the saving… you can’t SAVE!!!! You do have checkpoints, which is where you will respawn when you die, but sometimes these are spaced out. After defeating two thirds of a tough army, if one lucky stormtrooper pushes you, you’re dead, and you have to start ALL over again. I like my saves… I want my save.
If you are a fan you will enjoy it – if not, you’ll still enjoy it, but you’ll soon be reminded of those frustrating arcade games where you feel the only way to complete the game is by pressing the button really fast.
