iPhone app: Force Unleashed

Wow! This is the first iPhone app that i've thoroughly enjoyed playing. Let me split my review into categories.

Gameplay - is fast-paced and exciting. It moves along quickly and can be very challenging at times. The variety of force abilities as well as the simple lightsabre movements add an extra depth to the gameplay. There's a reasonably-lengthed storyline and an extra survival mode to add some replay-vaule.

Graphics - while the scenery and backdrops are 2D drawings, they are pretty nice to look and have obviously had some time and effort put into them.

Controls - simple finger-swipes are all that are needed for lightsabre and force-ability controls.

Sound - the game sounds like a full-on Star Wars game would. There's steadily paced background music and the sound effects from laser fire and lightsabre swipes are a lot of fun to listen to.

All in all, i'd give this game an 8/10.


This is my first blog.

I read a lot of blogs, but i'm certainly not a pro at keeping my own. I'll be taking a Casual Perspective on the iPhone, gaming and technology in general. I will attempt to blog daily.
