Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II – first impressions

“Betrayed by Vader for the last time. A new journey begins with something worth fighting for, someone worth dying for…”

Darth Vader - Dad of The Year material right there

Starkiller looks f*cking happy. Heck he should be dishing out free food to the homeless, or selling tax-refundable badges. What a model citizen. Instead of remaining Jedi, Starkiller’s gonna be chasin’ after more stormtroopers, and Peter Garrett clones.

Holy crap. Darth Vader aka Kevin Rudd's plans to take over the world. PETER GARRETT CLONES

However, more on-topic, if you liked the first Force Unleashed, I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy the second. While I never liked how they made Starkiller so goddamn imber, it was admittedly pretty satisfying to hand out some dirt to stormtroopers, droids and other types of fodder.

I really do pity stormtroopers.

TFU2 makes improvements on its predecessor. Some force powers have apparantly been altered, and new ones have been introduced themselves, such as mind trick, which causes enemies to fight amongst themselves. Force Fury will now also be able to be used multiple times.

More explosions

A nice addition to the sequel is the inclusion of dismemberment. Limbs will get hacked off. Believe it or not, they didn’t in the TFU1, which was kinda weird, seeing that LucasArts put so much effort in its nifty physics engine, yet ignored the very visible effect of turning your enemies into diced vegetables. Said engine is also supposedly improved as well.

More Kamino. Lucas Arts just can't get enough of this planet

The first game was a pretty cool romp around the galaxy. I thoroughly enjoyed the boss battles, and though I found this canon pretty far-fetched, I’d still recommend TFU1 to any Star Wars fanboy/girl. TFU2 will be released in the US on 26/10/10 for pretty much everything out there.

Starkiller - next in Circque du Soleil's lineup

    seriously, who doesn’t like slicing storm troopers? Looks like the game is much improved from the first. I sure do hope they fix the annoying as hell glitches and improve the mechanics. Looks promising at least…
