Thumbs down Never again, LucasArts.

The Force Unleashed 2 has finally taught me the importance of only ever renting LucasArts games.

I went from Easy through Unleashed in 3 days, found the game to be way too short (even though they tried to make it seem longer with all their cut-scenes,) too limited in scope (nothing really to explore - you just go in a straight line,) and the Gorog was just silly. In fact I'd say that the Gorog part ruined what was already a ho-hum game.

So rest assured, LucasArts, I'll only rent the next one.

Current Game: Star Wars: more Wars
I first played TFU2 by accident (thanks best friend) and I thought "This is awesome!" and then someone said me to go play TFU1, and I was like "This makes TFU2 look like a joke"


Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, if he gets angry, he's a mile away and barefoot.

I hate it when they take a great movie with a complete storyline and try to pin on two more films to make it into a trilogy. It's not a trilogy; it's two separate stories told in three movies. If there was any possibility of the first movie being so popular that it would inspire a sequel, why didn't you leave any openings whatsoever for the story to be continued? The only good trilogies are those that were trilogies to begin with.

Just look at what a flop Pirates of the Caribbean turned out to be. I'm getting the same vibe from TFU2 that I got from Dead Man's Chest. Both are basically an extended trailer for the third installment.

The Star Wars prequel trilogy, even though it was meant to be a trilogy, is also guilty of this. Episode 1 was a complete story with a beginning and end. Episode 2 basically started all over again and did nothing more than set the stage for Epsode 3. That's two separate stories crammed into one trilogy, not one continuous story like it should be, and it's exactly what they're doing to TFU.

Even if it's not one continuous story, why not three stories? That can work too. The Lord of the Rings was one story but it was also three separate stories. At the end of the Two Towers you had at least been treated to a complete storyline about Saruman that essentially began and ended in the same movie. If Christopher Lee's character had been defeated in Episode 2 of Star Wars, the ending wouldn't have felt so abrupt. In fact, it would have felt like the proper conclusion to a movie mostly about his actions.

The Two Towers was a story within a story. TFU 2, as much as you'd like to call the duel with Vader a climax, was still only half of a story.

Current Game: Replaying Gears Of War trilogy
i will agree that the game was a failure, it didn't live up to a lot of expectations, but i kind of liked the story, maybe it is just that i am a sucker for endings that weren't endings, and a story that is definitely going to end, i am still looking forward to Unleashed 3, i just hope they keep an eye on forums, and reviews. make steps forward, not backwards.

The level i hated in the first game (the bull rancor) is too similar to the Gorog, it was just tedious, doing the exact same thing over and over and over, with very little accomplished each time. Hopefully there isn't a level like this in TFU3, but maybe some people liked it.


The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done." -George Carlin

Well I liked the gameplay and the graphics weren't too shabby. just what really killed it was, yes, the Gorog level and also the fact that it was too short. If they make a TF3, I may get it, or it least play it at a friends house.

I love when people register new accounts just to give LucasArts a piece of their minds, and never come around again, not realizing that LucasForums is in no way connected to LucasArts or any of part of George Lucas' empire.

Yeah, we get those quite a bit. Especially around the Republic Commando forums.

Well, like his screen name says, his post is moot.
