The Star Wars saga will continue in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, a videogame developed by LucasArts, which casts players as Darth Vader's "Secret Apprentice" and promises to unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. The expansive story, created under direction from George Lucas, is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In it, players will assist the iconic villain in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi - and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny.
  • During the period between Episodes III and IV, players hunt Jedi in the role of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice.
  • Unleash and upgrade the Secret Apprentice's four core Force powers - Force push, grip, repulse and lightning - throughout the course of the game, and combine them for ultra-destructive, never-before-seen combos.
  • The Secret Apprentice won't just Force push enemies into walls - he'll Force push enemies through walls.
  • The Secret Apprentice won't just Force grip foes to throw them aside - he'll Force grip them in midair, zap them with lightning, then drop them to the ground to explode like a bomb.
  • In addition to new adversaries created just for the game, such as fugitive Jedi and Force-sensitive Felucians, players will also confront and associate with familiar faces from the Star Wars films, including Darth Vader.
  • Visit locations such as Episode III's Wookiee homeworld Kashyyyk and the floral Felucia, the junk planet Raxus Prime, plus an Imperial TIE fighter construction facility.
  • Decisions made by players throughout the game will determine the path of the story, including multiple endings that will rock Star Wars continuity as they know it.
  • The Force Unleashed is LucasArts' first internally developed title for next-generation consoles, and it represents the first in-game collaboration of talents and technology between LucasArts and Industrial Light & Magic, two companies now finally under one roof at the new Letterman Digital Arts Center in San Francisco's Presidio district.
  • The Force Unleashed debuts Digital Molecular Matter from Pixelux and euphoria behavioral simulation from NaturalMotion Ltd.
  • LucasArts is preparing an unprecedented promotional effort around the launch of The Force Unleashed, encompassing a full line of toys and game-based action figures from Hasbro, as well as a full publishing program from Dark Horse, Del Rey and Palace Press.

I am a massive Star Wars fan and for me the Force Unleased is just as enjoyable to play as God Of War 2 and Shadow Of Colossus. The graphics are most impressive with it's God Of War style boss battles and it's flash up button commands. It is great fun being Darth Vaders secret apprentice as you are a real bada#*! You have lots of different powers such as lightning, force push, choke, saber throw and many more. As you progress through the game you can up-grade your moves, unlock new costumes and customise the colour of your lightsaber. I found the story of the Force Unleashed to be very interesting and thought it could make a good film. The only reason why I have only gave Star Wars: The Force Unleased 4 stars and not 5 stars is because I have completed it within two days.

 Something To Do In The Commercial Breaks

I completly agree with the review of "StusMagicBox " - I am a huge Star Wars fan and have been since the original release in the 70's however having bought "Revenge of the sith" and now this the latter is a far more superior game - Force Unleasshed is a very average game that seems to have been put together for speed and profit. Sadly upon buying this i game played for approx 8 hours and completed it with all upgrades and colectables - As for the description where as you choose your destiny i couldn't you have to go with the next mission automatically, you can not pick and choose, unlike that of the R.O.T.S. - For a star wars fan this game will be a happy addition to their games but i, being a huge fan was in two minds as to ask for a refund or not - i was expecting a game that lasted more than 8 hours and sadly this isn't it

 Playable but doesn't quite live up to the hype.

I got the distinct impression that a lot less effort went into the PS2 version than its big brother counterparts, the graphics all looking as though they had been rushed through and falling far short of what the PS2 is capable of (I suspect that this version was only really intended for PSP). The in-game rendering for cut scene's was also a disappointment. The game play is very repetitive, plenty of fighting but not much else. The concept for the story has bags of potential but again doesn't really reach it. It'll pass the time and if you don't expect too much you'll probably enjoy it.

 Arise, my young apprentice.

This is a brilliant game. The cut-scene's are amazing, setting the story that would occur between episode's 3 and 4. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is a must have game for any Star Wars fan.
