Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 (Game)

First of all, this game had lots of hype then when it came out it suddenly died. I heard nothing of it and couldn't find much to read about it. Realizing this now I must add to the collection of the few "reviews."
The story pretty much takes place exactly after the first Force Unleashed (assuming the player picked the good ending) with Vader using part of Kamino's cloning technology to clone Starkiller and re-use him like he did before. However, the cloning process has a problem, the cloned Starkiller has visions related to the previous Starkillers all including death and of course Juno, the original Starkiller's love. This clone (a.k.a. the player) is one that has lasted longer than any other clone before him yet still has the visions, right when Vader tells him what the visions might make of him (leading to death) the clone then has a vision of Vader "killing him" as he did in the first game. Thus leading to the clone to rebel and fight his way out of Kamino to find Juno (That hot British chick).
Now at first playing this game it is really intense, the first thing you do is destroy platforms and TIE fighters as you are falling down using only electricity and force push in the middle of a lightning storm. Instead of the one lightsaber you have two which can be custom colored such as green and yellow to give different advantages in battle. The force powers and combos are extreamly more over powered but only against some enemy foot soldiers. Otherwise, you must build up on your "Force Fury" to quickly bring down robots, AT-ST's, etc.
The new enemies force the player to think quickly at times but often there is a quick exploit that can be used over and over again for a quick kill. The story line itself does gives a better understanding on Star Wars History that actually makes sense in the end (unlike that dreadful "Clone Wars" 3D animated shit). Over all it is a very good game but one major problem I can point out.... IT'S REALLY SHORT!! I'm a laid back type of guy that just takes video games as a relaxant and shouldn't really be hardcore looked upon but damn is this short.  However, the upgrades and finding the costumes/crystals give that "why not play it again" thought which is good in this case, don't have to go through a lot to get to a certain level.

It is a great game but only worth it if you either got it for free or only paid 20 bucks for it. Otherwise just wait around for the price to drop.
