Star Wars The Force Unleashed 2 Tests: Erste Internationale Reviews im Überblick
In den ersten Tests heimste Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 nur durchschnittliche Wertungen ein. Wie das neue Action-Adventure in den internationalen Reviews abschneidet, lest ihr hier auf Videogameszone.de.
Die ersten internationalen Tests zu Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 sind online. Und diese verheißen nichts Gutes - das Action-Adventure scheint sich im Mittelfeld der der bunten Spiele-Welt anzusiedeln. Das Online-Magazin Eurogamer schreibt etwa: "Das Spiel fühlt sich an, als sei es aus einer Pflicht entstanden, nicht aus einer Inspiration." Ein Spiel von der Stange also? Die Cheat Code Central vergibt zwar 4 von 5 Punkten, räumt aber ein: "Der Nachfolger fängt einfach nicht die Atmosphäre des Vorgängers ein und das ist es, was das Spiel schlussendlich nicht zu einem großartigen Game macht."
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 erscheint am morgigen Donnerstag. Dann lest ihr an dieser Stelle den Videogameszone-Test zum Action-Adventure im Star-Wars-Universum. Welche Wertungen die bekanntesten internationalen Magazine vergaben, haben wir für euch in der folgenden Übersicht aufgelistet.
Cheat Code Central - 4 / 5
The Force Unleased II is a good game. However, I would be hesitant to call it a good Star Wars game. The original Force Unleashed did a good job building on Star Wars' mythos in a way that was interesting but non-intrusive. It presented a simple story that featured plenty of thematic elements seen in both the original and prequel trilogy. However, the follow-up just doesn't capture the original's spirit, and that is what ultimately holds this title back from being something great.
GamesRadar - 8 / 10
Takes nearly every complaint we had about the original and fixes it or gives us something better. We finally feel like a proper, force-wielding one-man army. It's still short and doesn't take us on a truly grand tour of the Star Wars universe, but the storytelling holds up in quality and fits right in to the existing mythology.
GameInformer - 7,5 / 10
A shadow of its former self. The graceful gameplay offers a higher level of excitement, but the plot and characterization - two large components from which I expect great things from any Star Wars journey - makes this experience one of 2010's biggest disappointments.
IGN - 6,5 / 10
It's disappointing that The Force Unleashed 2 not only fails to tell an interesting yarn, but also somehow manages to make the cool combat mechanics feel relatively pedestrian by failing to have enough variation in combat, or enough outside of combat to break up the pacing.
Gamespot 6,0 / 10
Though occasionally enjoyable, this Force-powered sequel is a mere apprentice to its superior predecessor.
Destructoid - 6,0 / 10
There are one or two interesting set-pieces, but nothing as epic as the first game. There's really only one boss fight (other than the finale), and while it starts out slightly cool, it just evolves into tediousness.
Joystiq - 3 / 5
Anyone looking to turn off their brain for several hours and spam some buttons as a ridiculously powerful Force user will do fine. Those who respected the first game for its story, or are looking for quality presentation, combat variety and the feeling like they didn't just get two-thirds of a full-priced product can find better games now in a galaxy much, much closer.
Gamepro - 3,5 / 5
I had a great time dismembering members of the Empire for four hours, and what little story exists has some great potential, but the hugely missed marks and brutal technical problems really bring The Force Unleashed 2 to its knees. It's tough to recommend this to even the most devout Star Wars fan, since they'll feel the sting of disappointment worse than those who'd simply dislike it as a mediocre action game.
Eurogamer - 5 / 10
A game that feels like it was created out of obligation rather than inspiration.
