Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is now available in stores. The question is: do you want to go out and buy it today? Reviews are in and I guess I'm a little undecided as to whether or not I should pay full price for the game. If you'd like to make an informed decision yourself, check out the review scores and video reviews after the jump.

According to Game Rankings, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is averaging a solid 75% rating. Maybe it's not the greatest game ever made but that's still an otherwise good score. Here are the scores assigned by some of today's best known review sites and magazines:

  • Game Informer: 8.75 / 10
  • Official Xbox Magazine (OXM): 7.5 / 10
  • GamePro: 3.5 / 5
  • Eurogamer: 7 / 10
  • GameTrailers: 6.9 / 10
  • Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM): C+
  • GameSpot: 7.5 / 10
Pretty mediocre scores for a blockbuster title. If you'd really like to get a taste of where Star Wars: The Force Unleashed shines and where it fails miserably, watch the following three video reviews.

So - do you still want to buy The Force Unleashed? It's a moot point for me because my Xbox 360 is still away for repairs. But if you're looking to take your first steps down the path to the Dark Side, click on the appropriate link below:
