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

User Rating: 8.5 | Star Wars: The Force Unleashed PSP
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 universe. A well-written storyline keeps the player immersed in the game through its ending, with characters that fit beautifully and enough intrigue to make it interesting. The general game mechanics are simple and easy to implement (even for those who aren't avid gamers), and the ability to focus the Apprentice towards your particular style personalizes the game. In addition, the extras provided by Force Unleashed, like trying to collect all the hidden tokens, as well as historic battles and force dueling give it a lot of replayability. The interesting and destructible environments, combined with a variety of ways to take out opponents, add a lot of fun to this game.
No game is without flaws, and Force Unleashed does have a couple of them. The biggest one is the camera angles. There is no ability to adjust it, and during the game there was a few times that I was fighting blind because of the view. Another issue I had involved the boss fights. While I enjoy the GOW-style button series, the cut scenes were moving so quickly that a lot of the action was missed while trying to keep up with the proper sequence. However, these are only minor issues and do not really take away from the overall experience of playing the game.
A great storyline, interesting characters, good gameplay, and great extras make Force Unleashed a worthwhile addition to any collection and a lot of fun. It is a must have for die-hard fans of Star Wars, and a great introduction for those who are new to the genre and its games.
