Reviewing The Force Unleashed September 17, 2008

Well, sort of . . . .

I can’t do a really honest review of the game just yet because I have only played a little bit of it (it came out yesterday after all) but I’m really so excited that I need to get some thoughts down.

This game is freaking sweet!

Let me give you an idea of the awesomeness here.  In the first level, you play on Kashyyyk as Darth Vader and you can literally crumple people into tiny balls by breaking all their limbs with the Force.  In the second level, you’re having a lightsaber fight in a piece of space station that has broken off and is burning up in re-entry.  The third level is on a garbage planet called Raxus Prime, the “place where all droids go to die.”

I’ve got to talk about the new Havok physics engine along with the digital molecular matter and the new euphoria AI system.  I’m playing this game on PS3 and these three elements together (what LucasArts is calling the “Ronin” engine) really sells the term “next gen”.
