Strike me down with all of your hatred

November is going to be a good month for Star Wars fans who also play video games, and without wanting to perpetuate stereotypes, chances are that they probably do. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition is a follow up to last year's best seller with additional levels. The game takes place in an alternate Star Wars universe in which Darth Vader takes a secret apprentice, named Starkiller, who is sent out to kill the remnants of the Jedi order. The game received mixed reviews, but the storyline, set between the prequels and the original movie trilogy, was actually quite compelling, with lots of twists and turns. Click on this link for more information. Unlike the previous game, this expanded version will only be released on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and high spec PCs.

That game was one of the reasons why I relented and bought an Xbox 360 last summer when I wanted to upgrade my console.

I was going along good until I read this. Too geeky.

Never mind. Thanks for reading, anyway. Guilty as charged, your honour.

justthat they take an already good soryline and they....well? Is it really an improvement?

Ross said...

It's not really an improvement. It's another spinoff based on a new character who is later killed off so that the continuity of both the classic and prequel trilogies isn't affected.
