Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

Well to start off with, This was an all around awesome game!! If you love the movies or even if you just have a little bit of a god complex, then you will love this game.
The story line is a little slow to start off but with good reason. It gives players time to master the controls before too much is thrown at them. The game takes place between the Third and Fourth Episodes (The last movie in the new trilogy and the first of the old. Just so we are straight!) and tells of how the Rebel Alliance came to be and how they got their crest as well. The game keeps you guessing at what Darth Vader is really up to as well as the main character, the apprentice.
Force Unleashed allows players to wield all the classic force powers and combine them to get different results. They are not all at your disposal until you have gained the experience to learn new moves and strengthen your character. Each level has cubes that give you more experience as well as customizable parts for your light saber!
The replay value is high with all the customizations the player is allowed to make. This is pushed even further by having a choose your own ending and small bonus missions that are reminiscent of the Halo trilogy and their skulls.

My rough cut summary: I would give this game on the XBox 360 a 10 out of 10 any day!!

Note: It has been brought to my attention that there is a PlayStation2 version out there... AVOID it at ALL costs!! My friend picked it up and it is a shame they give it the same title!
