Aren't you a little short for a $60 Star Wars game?

I really enjoyed the first Force Unleashed game, so I had high expectations for the sequel. Unfortunately, the sequel was highly disappointing.

In the original game, you start off with limited skills and need to gain experience points to unlock more powers and abilities. In this version, you can upgrade your powers, but before I reached the point where I felt it was necessary to upgrade, the game was already over. Plus, the character was so powerful to begin with, the added abilities/bonuses didn't seem necessary.

One difference between this game and the original is that your character wields two lighsabers rather than two... This has no effect on the gameplay. For several of the larger enemies, you are prompted to hit buttons as they are flashed on screen ala God of War. The animations for these actions are pretty cool at first, but get very repetitive after a few enemies, which is impressive considering how short this game is.

Did I mention this game is short? I think I only remember fighting two bosses in this game. The ending of the game caught me by surprise... literally. After the second boss fight, I thought I was about to embark on a whole new set of quests, and then the credits started rolling.

This game had none of the story or twists that made the first one so good. If you must play every Star Wars game, then wait for this to drop into the bargain bin...it shouldn't take long. Otherwise, you're better off passing on this one.

Agreed this game was WAY to short. The sentence is longer than the game.

Epic Gameplay, but Far to Short
Following up on the success of Star Wars the Force Unleashed, the best-selling Star Wars game in history, was no easy task. The talented programmers and artists at LucasArts set out to create the ultimate Star Wars experience for gamers and fans alike and have crafted a visually impressive follow-up. After much anticipation and hype Star Wars the Force Unleashed II has arrived for both PC and console gamers and looks to continue this success of the first game.      The story …

was an imperfect but fun entry to Star Wars video gaming. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II has its moments, but overall it's a disappointment. Here are some thoughts on the Wii version:    The GOOD  The graphics are a LOT better. They're still not up to Xbox or PS3 standards, but the characters no longer look like laughable polygons. And the levels are a lot brighter. Visually, the game is appealing and looks like Star Wars.    The story is also …

The Star Wars Saga continues with Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, the highly anticipated sequel to the fastest-selling Star Wars game ever created, which has sold more than seven million copies worldwide.
