A good game completely under appreciated.

You play Starkiller, Darth Vader's secret apprentice who is a force prodigy. Your mission is to hunt down Jedi (for the time being anyway :P). While the story gives you a rather unwelcoming start it soon picks up and is engaging enough and of high enough quality that it can be considered a welcome addition to the Star Wars saga. In cut scenes character models can look a bit off but voice acting and face animations make the story much more enjoyable.
But that's not why you'll get the game, you'll get the game because of the force powers. There isn't anything more enjoyable than flinging your enemies around, throwing your lightsaber into them, electrocuting them, tossing around debris and then playing with them with force grip. You need to think like a Sith, you need to be cruel and go on a rampage with the force to appreciate this game. The physics are the best I have ever seen, knocking through walls, bending metal and smashing glass all in a realistic way. The physics for characters is something else though, you will not see a repeated animation EVER!
A tip to properly enjoy this game is to play it on easy and for a second time, enemies can be properly mutilated and and overwhelmed, it so much for fun than the first time around.
