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 game is a decade old and it shows. I constantly felt frustrated while playing this game. Issues range from archaic camera management to sluggish controls, all of which combine to make a game that could have been great but instead turns out to be really annoying. My biggest three complaints: - Camera seems to constantly position itself in a way that is not helpful, or it prohibits you from actually looking where you need to look (like upward). - Your character becomes immobile when hit with an enemy attack, forcing you to take hit after hit until the enemy stops attacking. Multiple enemies attacking simultaneously can kill you while you're force to stand by and watch. Some enemies can knock you down, then attack as soon as you get back up, knocking you down again... and repeat until you die. - Sometimes you can input a control command and it simply won't happen. I had this occur several times, particularly with double jumps. There seems to be a forced delay between inputs, but it effectively just makes the controls feel sluggish or feel like they don't work at all. If these three issues were fixed, I still probably wouldn't like this game. Force Unleashed is pretty much exclusively a combat game, and I really didn't like the combat. The combat is of the memorize-a-ton-of-combos genre, which I have never really enjoyed. The fancy combo attacks seem too tedious to use and difficult to remember the proper timing, especially with the control issues, but the basic attacks all have lag between attacks, leaving you vulnerable. I found myself in a type of Catch 22 situation, but it turned out I could win nearly every combat with just two special attacks memorized and completely ignore the rest of the attack options. The whole system feels clumsy and poorly implemented. Boss battles and larger enemies also threw in QTEs, which never serve to improve the situation. I also don't like that you can run out of force powers, or be punished for using them too quickly. That ultimately just makes the combat even less fluid as it instills mandatory breaks into your flow of attacks while you run away and wait for force to replenish. About halfway through the game I realized that nearly all the combat was optional and I could literally just run past the enemies to the next area. This certainly made the game faster, but also made me realize just how much this game relies on the combat to provide any meaningful game experience. Yet the combat isn't any good, so there really isn't anything meaningful here to find...
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed definately has its share of problems but at the end of the day it a solid action game that's worth playing through. What it does do poorly, definately stands in the way of it just being "solid" to being "exceptional". What's Good: - Excellent visuals - Classic Star Wars sounds, soundtrack, and ambiance - Plenty of force powers to unlock and "unleash" against foes - One hell of a way to start the game (play the prologue and you'll see what I mean) - A great group of new characters introduced into the Star Wars universe - The story is a nice addition to the Star Wars history and canon - Boss fights (especially with Jedi) have that same epic feel that battles in the movies do - Newcomer friendly. If you know basic facts about the series at a minimum, you should be fine. What's Not-So-Good: - Darth Vader just doesn't sound the same without James Earl Jones - The story could have dug a tad bit deeper with some of the personal relationships What's Bad: - Targeting - Unnecessary and long load screens - Poor damage recovery to melee attacks
This was a really fun game, awesome story and visuals, but one thing hurt it for me. It had parts that required timed button presses, one of my pet peeves in video games and a video gaming sin in my book. It isn't used enough to make me not recommend this game, but it is enough to keep it off my must have list.
As for the title that is quite old as it remembers young years of Xbox360 the game has a nice decent mechanics that will not bother you during gameplay. The story is also great, although the main character's glorification does not fit very well with what was shown in the films. Frustrating in certain places and at the end can be a bit monotonous, but overall providing good fun.
This game is enjoyable, but only as an action piece. I'm going out on a limb here, and assume, I'm not the only one, who has power fantasies about fighting a legion of storm troopers, lifting a spaceship with the force, and duelling Darth Vader with a lightsaber, and defeating him, and the emperor as well. This game let's you do this, and even more, which is cool, just don't expect it to be meaningful. This is a Star Wars adventure, created by Michael Bay. You can be the most powerful Sith for a weekend, and with the extra content, even for a few hours more. About the extra content! The battle of Hoth is neat, but the other two levels are just meh. I don't even remember where they are, just that i was lost, confused, and bored at the same time, and after a while just stopped playing.
