The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

It’s time once again to unleash hell by all powers of the force. Whether you have lightning coming from the palm of your hands, to the telekinesis abilities, you’re in for a special treat. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II has taken all powers of the force to a new level…so we think

In Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, you’re believed to be a clone of Starkiller and taking the role of a Jedi. Due to the cloning mechanism not being perfect, you’re haunted by the memories of Starkiller from Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Darth Vader feels his test was a failure because you resisted killing a holodroid of Juno Eclipse. Calling you imperfect, you asked questions about what happened to the other clones. Getting sudden memory of Darth Vader killing the other clones, you realized you’re about to be killed by this sith lord. You react suddenly and escape from Kamino, the planet where Darth Vader believed to have created you. You escaped and now on a journey to find the woman you have feelings for, Juno, and to get help since Darth Vader has created an army of cloned Starkiller, we’ll talk about that later.

Once again all hell is being broke loose. You don’t want to die and that’s quite understandable. You have duel wielding lightsabers and most of the force powers. As you’re traveling and defending yourself, you get memories of your force powers. Using the “mind trick” force power was funny to me. When you use this on your enemies, the weak-mind will kill themselves and they’ll kill those attacking you. The other force powers are just the same abilities as you witness in the first Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. It pisses me off a little that you can’t cause more destructing then the first game.

While you’re traveling to very few planets, you’re going to encounter couple famous characters from the Star Wars film and the previous game. You get to reunited once again with General Kota and discuss **** is happening on Kamino and Darth Vader is making an army of clone Starkillers. Kota is foolish and doesn’t believe you’re a clone, and believes it’s impossible to clone a Jedi Yes, you also will reunited with your best friend/holodroid Proxy. Also, you will be able get to meet Yoda on Dagobagh for a short time, as well as seeing Boba Fett interacting with Vader. What I feel is complete bullshit is Vader hiring Fett to lure you to him since he is holding Juno as hostage, but yet you don’t even lay a midichlorian on him. Instead you get to fight off his little squadron as he runs away with your girl. Of course, your ******* ends up falling for the trap.

Would love to share how long this game is, but sadly it’s very short and limited. During the battle with Vader, Vader will use his army of Starkiller clones on you. “Oh my, what are we going to do?” Well sadly, these clones are also imperfect. In fact, they’re so imperfect; they’re literally retarded and annoying as hell. All they do is jump to one platform to the next, use these force bubble **** on you. I couldn’t find a better term than that. But don’t worry, you can use your mind trick and send to battle Vader.

After fighting Vader, you’ve got him into a position. You’re about to kill him, but here comes Kota to tell you not to kill Vader, since he contains the secrets to whether or not you’re a clone or the actual Starkiller. Once again you’re left with a two-way ending story. You can either choose the Darkside, or the Lightside. It doesn’t matter which one you choose, because both sides have a cliff-hanger and might be hinting to a new Star Wars: The Force Unleashed game.

If you’re not playing the story mode, there always the challenges you can have fun in. My favorite challenge is preventing Storm-troopers to entering an area as if you we playing a three-dimensional Space Invaders. In fact, I think you might have much more fun competing your ranks against others online then you will in the story mode.

Overall, this game was shitty. The story plot is ok, but you do the most retarded tasks. One of the task is the infinite freefalling you will experience fighting a "boss." Jumping in the game sucks because you can’t even tell if you’re jumping too far or too short. The force powers weren’t even that destructive as the previous game, but the graphics slightly improved The Lightside ending was very predictable, but I must say the Darkside ending fooled me. The thing I hated most was how short the gameplay was. Being able to play and complete a game within a couple of hours pisses me off and makes feel cry. Do you really want to see UghRochester cry?  Anyhow this game deserves a D+

+Duel wielding Lightsabers
+ Enemies kill themselves with Mind Trick
