The demo for the long awaited sequel to The Force Unleashed was released today and if you liked the original you’ll be pleased to hear that it feels like a hit. I really liked the storyline of the first game and this one has a cool concept in which you’re a clone of Starkiller; Darth Vader’s secret apprentice whose rebellion is the subject of the original game. The cloning process is imperfect and so you are afflicted with memories of things that happened in the first game and flashes of compassion for the rebel scum you are being unleashed to destroy . . .
The controls are exactly as they were in the first game and I was surprised to find that my lightsaber was actually decapitating Storm Troopers and leaving a trail of severed clone limbs in my path as the tables turned and the Starkiller clone makes his escape from the Dark Lord of the Sith.
