Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (PS3) Review
Set in between episode III and episode IV of Star Wars movies, you play as Starkiller, Darth Vader’s secret apprentice.
The game was not that bad but it would have been much better if it lasted a little longer. The game starts off with the Prologue, something I really appreciated, you play as Darth Vader at the beginning of the campaign. It is crucial to the storyline but it lasts for a short time. He is a little too slow in his movements but his force powers are really great. As Darth Vader you hunt down a Jedi whose son is the one who becomes Starkiller in the future. Darth Vader trains him to become a Sith, teaching him all about the power of the Dark side.

Starkiller, is sent to hunt down the remaining Jedi after the Great Jedi Purge (Order 66). But his future is sensed by a Jedi General, Rahm Kota, who sense’s that Darth Vader won’t always be Starkiller’s master. In the game,you get use really cool Sith lightsaber techniques, this being a Sith. There are a lot of combos and the lightsaber can be customized as well. You can choose colour and Power crystal. The Power crystal is something that can give your lightsaber a special ability, like, extra lightning damage while using the lightsaber. There are many of them you can choose according to the situation in the game. All force powers, combos and talents (Health, deflection, force energy and so on) are not unlocked, you have to unlock them playing through the game, leveling up or completing bonus objectives.
As you move on in the game, what General Rahm Kota sensed, does really happen and Starkiller decides to help the rebels. There are some really awesome Boss Battles and Battles in this game, one of the best ones was fighting The Emperor and Darth Vader at the last Boss Battles. At the end you get to choose the Dark side ending or the light side ending. It is good to finish both so you can see what happens in either case and it also unlocks two different trophies.
