Are you a clone of Starkiller and do you care? It's short, it's repetitive and it lets you play as Boba Fett with light sabers, it's The Force Unleashed II.

"oh boy THIS fighting series in the fighting genre everything relates to normality such as transversal tournament bracket swapping street fighting characthers spit protrude blood showcasing their mortality having more than 12 pints of blood and unrealistic fatalities but Guilty Gear contained guitarist rock refrences and then eventually this game released and everyone got scared possibly furry clichés and well clevaged girls with apocalyptic backgrounds is enough for turning heads but certaintly" - mrscrubnub

 Skater Cat - Nintendo 3DS
"well then another game involvement in the popular massive genre of mobile gaming portable handheld gaming that is easily accessible no moving controls just mashing that jump button at correct intervals another acceptable belonging to Nintendo consoles is that it has a soundtrack and backgrounds leveldesign and a location reminiscent of pianta villiage may be highly coincidental it refrences Mario Kart levels and support for Mii characters breaks that ground and no transferrable camera but many" - mrscrubnub

 James Pond: Underwater Agent - Sega Genesis
"love the concept, looks terrible" - teddykongcountry

 Crysis 3 - PlayStation 3
"If you are looking for the next "super-special-shooter" you won't find it here, if you want a really cool sci-fi shooter and sequel you will.The weapon mechanics are as solid as in any modern CoD or Battlefield game and the weapons themselves are great fun to use - the bow in particular.The gameplay is as tactical as Crysis 2 was but not as much as the first Crysis game, in any case you can still choose your own approach as how to handle the enemy. It looks fantastic and plays really well." - bootis

 The Witch and the Hundred Knight - PlayStation 3
"It looks like something I could get into. Thumbs up for the Mr. Show reference." - aidax123

Review by lon lon milker

n-Space is a developer that gets close to being something great, but never quite succeeds.

Last year they released the Diablo-esque Heroes of Ruin, which was close to being big, but NOT. They also released Skylanders Giants for the 3DS, which was nice, but still leaves something to be desired. It seems like n-Space tries to make a very good effort on their games, but it doesn’t live up to standards or the hype. Although n-Space’s Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is flawed, it is still a fun game for your DS.

The story for The Force Unleashed is the main attraction of this game. Darth Vader finds you as a boy and you are the unnamed apprentice of the Disney villain himself. As his apprentice you go to different planets and places to hunt Jedi and please your master so you and he can kill the emperor. After that you – SPOILER, SPOILER, SPOILER, SPOILER, SPOILER, SPOILER, SPOILER, SPOILER – and now you are ready for the sequel.

The gameplay of The Force Unleashed is that of an action game where you go through a linear 3D environment and beat your enemies to a pulp. The top part of the DS’s screen is where the main screen is, and the touch screen is used for all the attacks. This makes it really easy to pull off combos as you just slide one attack with another.  However, a lot of the moves and combos are lesser than others; so expect that you won’t be using a light saber throw. The more practical way to kill your enemies is actually just hitting them with your light saber. There is also a skill bar that increases certain attacks but all and all the controls aren’t anything special.

Other disappointing features include not being able to go and replay levels once you complete them. To play them again you have to play through the story mode again.  The boss battles are pretty boring as well. I played this game for a good 30 hours in total, and I think only less than half a dozen times did I die from bosses. There is also a multiplayer part to this game, but good luck finding someone who bought the DS version!

On the bright side of things though, this game does succeed in keeping the main story intact with models that resemble the characters. This is also the only other version besides the one on Wii that lets you go around in your ship “the rouge shadow”, where you can change your outfit and the colour of your light saber. The music, as with almost all Star Wars games, is great as well, however, the sound echoes sometimes, as if recorded over.

n-Space has yet to create an excellent game, but as a budget game developer for ports, they do a good job with The Force Unleashed. It’s bad sometimes, but really this isn’t something to not touch with a thirty-nine and a half foot pole. This is a fine game if you’re going the bargain route.
