Star Wars: The Force Unleashed


19:3417/09/2008Posted by David Scammell3 Comments

The Star Wars franchise is no stranger to over-hyped video game spin-offs that unfortunately (and often far too predictably) fail to set the world on fire upon arrival. Despite being host to an impressive library of material and that signature sci-fi universe, the games never seem to live up to expectation. But for some reason we all felt that The Force Unleashed would be different. As a determined LucasArts battles to deliver on the lofty promises of its “multimedia project”, were we right in getting our hopes up for this year’s big Star Wars title?

It’s obvious that LucasArts want The Force Unleashed to make a lasting impression from the get go. Thrust into the boots of the Dark Lord himself and thrown onto the Wookie homeworld of Kashyyyk, TFU is certainly host to a memorable and worthy opening. Using your sinister powers to electrocute, desecrate and suffocate every Wookie that dares to cross your path, there’s a certain dark pleasure to be had from the death and destruction unfolding around you.
