Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was released October 26, 2010 by Lucas Arts. The game was developed by Lucas Arts and ported to Windows by Aspyr Media. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is a third person action role playing shooter.
The game takes place approximately six months after the events of the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed release from 2008. This is set a year before the events in film Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
Line the older releases, the game has a combo system for stringing lightsaber attacks and for combining lightsaber attacks with Force powers.
The Force Unleashed II produced varying responses from critics, who despite adulating the sound design and aesthetics, were concerned with several gameplay elements and an underwhelming storyline.
The game has advanced AI that learns from the players behavior so that the game is more challenging as the player becomes more experienced. This is uncommon in games which usually use scripted settings.
There are over 50 different enemies in The Force Unleashed series and this will provide the player with many hours of play time.
The player controls Starkiller’s renegade clone–a failed attempt by Darth Vader to create a perfect apprentice.
After a vision that Darth Vader will kill him due to his inability to kill a test droid, the clone escapes from captivity on Kamino. After eliminating his stormtrooper captors, Starkiller embarks on a quest to understand his identity and to find his template’s love interest from the first game, Juno Eclipse.
Meanwhile, Darth Vader has hired Boba Fett to track down Juno Eclipse to lure Starkiller out of hiding.
According to lead producer Vinde Kudirka, the goal of the game across all platforms is to make the player feel like “a super-powerful Jedi”.
