Respekt! So lasse ich mich gerne auf die dunkle Seite ziehen. Auch wenn etliche technische Schwächen mir die Reise ins Star Wars Universum vermiesen, so überwiegen doch die großartige Story, das straffe Gameplay und eine superbe Soundkulisse. Star Wars - The Force Unleashed schafft es virtuos, den Spieler mit einem großartigen Actionspektakel zu unterhalten und dabei dank abwechslungsreicher Level Leerlauf zu vermeiden. Nicht auszudenken, wenn das Spiel noch einen guten Mehrspielermodus hätte!
So will the game’s sometimes-sputtery performance. Unless you’re rocking a quad-core iMac or Mac Pro, expect to dial the resolution down to 800x600 and still tolerate some choppiness. Our 2.8GHz Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro (bought late last year) definitely struggled with this game at times, which is just nuts. If you’ve got even a lick of Star Wars fan in you, Force Unleashed is wicked but flawed fun. Just be prepared to suffer some indignities--none as grave as Jar Jar Binks. We promise.
But the control issues of the original console game are only exacerbated by a terrible port job. Some segments of this game aren’t fun, but feel like chores. Moments like the Star Destroyer battle and others featured in the game’s trailer (a reason why the game had such expectations) are neutered by Quicktime events. I never thought I’d say this, but if you’re going to play this game, your money might be better spent on the Xbox 360 or PS3 version. A myriad of technical issues, glitches, and a complete disregard for the Mac platform makes this hard to recommend over other titles.
