Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II hits retail shelves tomorrow and if you want to get a little taste of it you can download a demo on Xbox Live. I just did and got in a few minutes on it.
If you played the original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (walkthrough) there isn’t much new here. In fact, the original came out two years ago and it only took me about 30 seconds to reacquaint myself with the controls at which point they were second nature.
And, it’s the controls that were so good in this game. Sure it’s a bit of hack-n-slash as the Lightsaber is mapped to one button only but there is truly no end to the joy I receive when I throw a Storm Trooper over the edge of a bridge or into a power coupling.
The only noticeable difference is that the visuals are quite upgraded and are amazing. I play on a 32 inch Sony Bravia at 720p. With that being said, if you want a great Star Wars experience, don’t hesitate on this one. It’ll get your heart racing and your emotions going.
