One of my Christmas gifts consisted of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
for PlayStation 3, and I have to say that I am enjoying it. Now, of course I don't think it's the best game around by far, but it is fun. You are basically this Sith apprentice betrayed by Lord Vader and it's up to you to escape his clutches with your skills. Taking place between III and IV, it is giving some interesting back story to the length between movies and what exactly is going on during the growth of the Rebel Alliance. I haven't played the first one, but I might have to after getting started with this one.
Star Wars games as a whole, were never my favorite. Do you guys remember Super Star Wars
for Super Nintendo? Man, that was tough! But one of my favorite Star Wars games are both for the N64 back in the day: Rouge Squadron
and Episode I Racer
. Classic games! If only my N64 still worked...but anyway, back to The Force II
, it's pretty good sofar. Now, I have to be honest...this game is in no way as good as Red Dead or Arkham Asylum, but I am going to continue playing and see if my opinion changes over time...which if it will, I will still not find it superior to those aforementioned games.
