Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is the second installment in the TPP series depicting previously unknown events in the universe created by George Lucas from the Dark Side point of view. It was developed by LucasArts and chronologically takes place between the 3rd and 4th episode of Star Wars.
In the sequel of The Force Unleashed we again assume the role of Starkiller who is a secret student of Darth Vader. The developers call this game the “dark” episode, just like the Empire Strikes Back movie. Much like in the first part, we participate in many epic events that give us opportunities to use the power of the Force. The protagonist has a lot of fighting techniques at his disposal, including completely new ones, such as Mind Trick and Force Fury, though most of the time he uses the infallible lightsabers. The gameplay mechanics themselves were also subject to change – now they put an equal emphasis on tactics, puzzles and combat. The last one requires even more focus because new enemies are invulnerable to some attacks and therefore require more “personal” approach.
The developers also prepared some TIE fighter and freefall sequences in addition to the standard walking ones.
