The Force Unleashed bietet solide Action-Kost. Das klingt in Erinnerung an ein Jedi Academy nach nicht allzu viel, reicht aber dennoch für einige spaßige Abende mit Starkiller. Mir haben es die imposanten Machtfähigkeiten des Vader-Schülers angetan. Es tut gut, auch auf dem PC mal wieder ordentlich das Lichtschwert zu schwingen.

The Force Unleashed hat so seine Unzulänglichkeiten. Die Maussteuerung ist missglückt, hier und da hakt die Balance, und nüchtern betrachtet ist das Spiel doch nur ziemlich geradliniges Gekloppe. Doch ich kann nicht genug kriegen von hübsch inszenierten Star-Wars-Geschichten, ich finde es auch nach dem hundertsten Mal noch klasse, Gegner per Machtgriff herumzuwerfen, und deshalb ist The Force Unleashed trotz seiner Macken für mich ein Hit.

Учитывая, что слэшеры заглядывают на персональные компьютеры лишь по большим праздникам, на The Force Unleashed стоит обратить внимание не только любителям творчества Лукаса. Только не надо ожидать от этой игры слишком многого.

Лучший Star Wars-экшен со времен Jedi Academy доковылял до PC: порт не идеальный, геймдизайн хромает, но махать мечом и пускать молнии, как ни крути, невероятно интересно.

Overall I see SWFU as a sloppy console port of a game that was probably pretty great on the consoles (though I never played it there). Unoptimized, it has some controller issues (it might work better if I had a game pad, and if I didn’t hate game pads) and sound problems. I’ve played worse Star Wars games, way worse, but I’ve also played better ones. This one falls solidly in the middle of the pack. Star Wars fans will probably welcome this little excursion in the canon storyline (and at least one serious break from canon in the Hoth level). Non-Star Wars people and neutral Star Wars people (especially people running short on hard drive space like myself) would be better served looking for their Xmas jollies in one of the other big titles this season.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Ultimate Sith Edition is just an extended version of the game that was released last year. It doesn't fix or change anything in the original game - it just gives you a few more levels and some new skins. If you don't already have the game, give it a look. If you do, you might just want to go the DLC route.

Een slordige omzetting naar pc zorgt helaas opnieuw voor een soms irritante spelervaring. Het verhaal maakt echter veel goed.

Given the emphasis on storytelling and single-player action, The Force Unleashed is tragically flawed execution of a great concept. The Ultimate Sith Edition seems to ignore these problems, rather than attempt to fix them. A serious refinement of the combat, with a few extra gameplay modes thrown in, would definitely up the ante for a sequel.

Мы загнули все пять пальцев. Мог выйти кукиш, а вышел кулак. Крепкий такой, сбитый кулак средней игры. С большим потенциалом, нереализованными возможностями, стайкой багов и достаточно увлекательным действием. Ведь, как ни крути, рубить световым мечом в любые времена приятно, а крушить Силой никогда не выходило так эффектно.

По окончании эпопеи впервые разрешат совершить «этический» выбор, а также предложат две концовки и отдельные сценарии, посвященные событиям на Хоте, Татуине и Корусанте. Неканонические приключения содержат интересные повороты, специальные костюмчики и четыре часа геймплея. Неплохо, но ничего из ряда вон выходящего. Force Unleashed в целом производит такое же впечатление.

It's a wonder that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition for the PC was released at all considering the insignificant effort that seems to have been put into it. Even in the realm of sloppy ports, this one seems particularly egregious, considering its almost total lack of visual options and performance troubles. It's unfortunate that this version feels so rushed because in spite of the core game's scattered flaws, it's an ultimately enjoyable adventure that tells a great story populated by memorable characters. Alas, if you're a PC enthusiast who is tired of rushed console ports, The Force Unleashed is another game to add to that ever-growing list.

It’s a fun playthrough for first-timers, for the experience if for nothing else, but previous players should stay away because you’re basically just re-buying the game with a smattering of extra content. Ultimate Sith Edition might be the most competent on-foot “Star Wars” game in a long time, but does that make it worth purchasing twice?
