    The game is ok....I guess. Great soundtrack, great options and variations...I guess.

    This is the very first Star Wars game that I have ever played. I am a huge fan of the films, especially Episodes 3-5. This game is based between Ep3 & Ep4. All the missions seemed the same though. Fig...

    Star Wars the Force Unleashed is a great game, but is it the next Battlefront?

    Rated on August 12, 2009 by Schultz38

    It was a fun game. It was just too short, and kind of easy. Your overpowered, and not real intense. ATTENTION: spoiler alert. The last fight against Darth Vader and Lord Sideous is most likely the har...

    While it has some faults, Force Unleashed is a solid game with a lot of extras that make it very worthwhile.

    Star Wars: the Force Unleashed is a portrayal of Vader's secret apprentice set between the "Revenge of the Sith" and "New Hope" movies, and is a great stand-alone contribution to the Star Wars univers...

    This game brings all the good in Star Wars and has (in my opinion) very little potential be a disappointment to anybody

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed starts off strong in the moment you start off as the famous Darth Vader and makes its way as you learn where The Apprentice came from and how he was found as a mere chil...

    I wish I could say the camera doesn't get in the way, but it does.

    The Force Unleashed bridges the gap between the third and fourth episodes.

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for the PSP is not just a cheap port. It packs extra content that wasn't in other versions of the game. The basic gameplay involves your character ,Star Killer, who is t...

    better on console

    Rated on January 29, 2010 by l4dgamerfan

    I think this game is ok on handheld, i would much rather recommend it on console or that you rent it first and see how you feel about the gameplay. This game had massive potential, and while the conso...

    Fun game. Very short game.

    Rated on March 06, 2010 by zillaman101

    It a very fun video game. And it's extremely short. It only took me about 5 hours to finish it. I like the "the force unleashed" mode the most. You can historic missions where you can reanact some par...
