star wars force unleashed is a new "untold story" for the star wars franchise. after the events of episode 3 and before the events of episode 5 & 6 darth vader finds a small boy and drags him away from a recently extinguished battlefield. he trains him in the dark side of the force and he becomes vaders apprentice..NOBODY must know of his existence..even the emperor. neither sith nor jedi. you use all your force powers and your light-sabre to plow through imperial and rebel forces alike. you can electricute your enemies with force lightning, use force push to push objects into advancing enemies or grab ahold of them and use force choke. repulse is a new useful one. the apprentice..who is never named by the way levitates on air and unleashes a blast of force in all directions to clear an area quickly..
the reason why the game is successful is because its a WHOLE new story.
the boss fights and light sabre battles are the best for me. during boss fights you simply fight as you would normally BUT during the combat, the boss may lock you into a button bashing minigame,,during which you must keep bashing the buttons on screen to do more damage to them. an example would be a force-lightning or push duel in which both characters use the same move at the same time..bashing constantly lets you win the duel while failing to do this will have you lose and become damaged by there force attack.
but its not JUST button bashing while in boss fights, during critial momments, usually when the boss is weak,, you must string along a devistating finishing move (unique to each boss) in this you press each button until the boss is defeated. also the PSP has an exclusive mode to boast. force unleashed mode lets you play historic battles such as, vader vs luke, anakin vs count dooku and more. all with superb cutscenes..i duno what that guy is talkin about, the cutscenes are nice for the PSP, it may not be CGI but is still good.
great game. must for psp owners and fans alike..
