This is my first (and probably only) blog.
I bought it, played it, and I gotta say---It's okay. It's got great visuals and a very well-written story but it doesn't quite gel together all too well. The gameplay is a little lack-luster and the camera isn't your friend. Though the visuals are fantastic, some levels just seem tacked in just so you can grind until something exciting exciting happens. Speaking of which, the boss fights were okay but nothing spectacular---even on the hardest difficulty setting. Also, the difficulty curve will take hard left turns throughout the game and will come out and will hit you like a ton of bricks. For an uber-powerful Force-adept, the enemies seem to balance you out for some reason. Apparently, people can survive a lighsaber to the heart. Though it's extremely well written, the plot twists aren't too surprising and there are some bits in the story where it skips conventional logic within the story that saga had set up. You'll wonder "Why would Vader do this?", or "what's the point of this level? Why am I here?" throughout the story. There are also some minor glitches too but for every bad thing; there are good. The game actually uses music from the original saga and blends well with the new music made for the game. The game feels like STAR WARS, as well. It feels like it belongs in the STAR WARS universe and the art design keeps with the established aesthetic. And let me reiterate, the story's pretty good. Some might even say it's better then the prequel trilogy story and I say---Well, an opinion's an opinion.
Even though there are SOME noticeable glitches, they're dwarfed by the fact that you BLOW SHIT UP WITH THE FORCE! I mean check it out...
Force-lightning'ing a FRIGGIN' Rancor!!! AWESOME!
I got my STAR WARS fix from this and that's all it's good for. For the problems that the game has, you can easily overlook them when you take a Stormtrooper and toss him around like a ragdoll then throw him off into the horizon. Oh, and the game does put 'unleashed' in 'The Force Unleashed' if you haven't figured by now.
Imagine if you will, the Force is like the first penguin and the second penguin is anything that gets in the way.
Out of 5...
I'd give this 3 outta 5 but if you're a pitiful fanboy like me, you already have the game.
EDIT: My rating on this is now teetering between 2 or 3 out of 5. I'm beginning to hate TFU the more I play it.
