Experience the Power of the Dark Side
The story and action of Star Wars®: The Force Unleashed™ expands with the release of Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition. A special new version of the game that shows players the deepest, darkest side of the Force in a story that puts them on a collision course with Luke Skywalker himself. The Ultimate Sith Edition includes all of the original missions found in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed as well as three new levels set in iconic Star Wars locales and a host of new costumes and character models.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed completely re-imagines the scope and scale of the Force and casts players as Darth Vader’s “Secret Apprentice” unveiling new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy seen through the eyes of a mysterious new character armed with unprecedented powers.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition combines the original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed videogame and three new levels to create the definitive ultimate-evil storyline of the events that occurred between the two classic Star Wars movie trilogies.
Additional content includes three new levels set in iconic Star Wars locales and a host of new costumes and character models.
The Ultimate Sith Edition expands the story of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and re-imagines the Star Wars Saga as if the Secret Apprentice had killed Darth Vader and taken his place by The Emperor’s side, becoming the most powerful Sith Lord in the universe.
In the Ultimate Sith Edition, the Emperor sends his new apprentice to the planet Tatooine to dispatch Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has been hiding on the planet ever since the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. During their hunt for the reclusive Jedi, players will also explore the depths of Jabba the Hutt’s palace and encounter notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett.
In the game's thrilling finale, the Secret Apprentice is sent to the planet Hoth on a crusade to crush the Rebellion once and for all. While on Hoth, players face Luke Skywalker himself while visiting iconic locations seen in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.
The Ultimate Sith Edition gives gamers a chance to experience the full power of the dark side of the Force. Players can create devastating attack combos using the Secret Apprentice’s lightsaber and over-the-top Force powers – Force push, grip, repulse and lightning upgrade. Master these powers to leave a path of destruction behind them in their quest to rid the Galaxy of the Jedi.
The Secret Apprentice doesn’t just defeat his enemies with the Force– he hurls them through walls, smashes them into objects, shocks them with lightning, and even transforms them into Force-charged bombs capable of massive destruction.

This is a fun game. Don't let anyone tell you it's not. Sure, there are problems. The story is silly. The quick time events are underwhelming. Saber combat is simplistic and repetitive. The entire premise of Starkiller being more powerful than Darth Vader and the Emperor is ridiculous. Leaving all of the nonsense aside, this game is at least worth playing. There's enough content here for multiple playthroughs and you can even change into other characters to play the game as. If you are a fan of Star Wars, you should at least play through it. It's not a great game, but it's one worth experiencing once.
As a star wars fan it's enjoyable enough. The power fantasy and the story (even if it's not the greatest) is enough to keep you playing if you're into star wars. Otherwise, it's a mess. First of all... it's locked to 30FPS. There goes my interest huh? Well, not to worry, there's a fix. Only, if you use the fix, the game is more prone to crashing (Which it slightly already is) and force gripping things will send them upwards when held. This doesn't happen in the 30FPS lock mode though. So I would recommend using that. Also, - Audio seem to be all kinds of broken. Music missing in places. No ambient noises in places. Background music loop not working right, causing the music to just stop. Even missing effects at some points. - Framerate problems at certain places. This is hardly a demanding game, yet in some places (especially some bosses) there's bad slowdown in places, with the FPS dropping below 30. There was also a point when a portion of a boss was in slow motion for some reason (staying at 40FPS). And no it wasn't designed that way. - no combo breakers as far as I can tell. If an enemy starts a lightsaber combo and you get hit, there's no way to keep him from finishing his combo on you, unless it happens to have a very slow hit that allows you to speed away. The variety of force powers and combos is passable at best. Lightning based powers are too overpowered. A greater variety of combos and a reason to use anything else besides lightning based ones, would have made the combat much more interesting. That said, it's a fun game to play through. I don't recommend trying to do a perfect run of the game though. It takes way too much time and effort than this game gives you motivation for. Overall, it would be a slightly above average game in my books, if it wasn't for the glaring technical problems. With that taken in to account, I wouldn't recommend this unless you can get it for around 5$ and/or are a huge star wars nerd.
The force unleashed is a game that has a rather large reputation. A lot of people like it. It's ok, but I don't think that it's anything amazing. This game has two main things that are good about it: the graphics and the story. The story is very interesting, and it has many twists. The graphics are really cool, and there are numerous maps to explore. On the other hand, the controls were very simple; I felt like some of the levels were so easy that it was boring. Nevertheless, this game was fun, and beating it was rewarding. I hope you enjoy!
This game is intensely fun in short bursts. It's a special level of gratifying to slice through stormtroopers, hurl TIE Fighters, and crush AT-AT's with your mind. Plus the always epic force lightning, and a repulsive force field of energy akin to the Explosive wave in Budokai Tenkaichi makes destroying your opponents an absolute blast. The boss battles are hit and miss, but when they hit, they're beyond intense. That being said, the actual swordplay is repetitive at best, and tedious at worst. The puzzles are mindless, usually requiring you to remove or add a glowing object to a very obvious port. It's fun to pick up and play for half an hour to an hour, but it gets old fast. The story is also inconsistent. There are some real drama points in the beginning and end, but the middle is totally lacking in any reason to care about what you're doing. if you don't have a lot of time to put into games, this is a nice time waster, but it's nothing with much substance, and you likely won't play it again.
Yes and no. Yes because of the scope of this game. Some battles are truly epic in their scale. Worthy of being put in Star Wars movies. Cutscenes, which are aplenty in The Force Unleashed, are high quality, and capture Star Wars atmosphere completely. Where the game lacks is controls, character getting stuck in obstacles, outright stupid AI of the enemies, too many QTE, enemies able to stunlock your character until you die or somehow free yourself while mashing buttons at random. You can unlock new powers, even find lightsaber crystals. The game looks and sounds like Star Wars thing should. Unfortunately the cons I mentioned above drag the final score down. A lot. If you like Star Wars, as I do, you will be frustrated at times playing it. But you'll love it nonetheless.
