Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Tatooine DLC

Brad Gallaway's picture

Just completed the new Tatooine DLC for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on Xbox 360. As my co-podcaster Tim Spaeth so eloquently put it, it's another piece of "stealth DLC" arriving with no forewarning or fanfare, much like Mass Effect's Pinnacle Station. However, unlike Pinnacle Station, this add-on is pretty sweet.

Starting out, the mission assumes that the player became the Emperor's new disciple at the end of The Force Unleashed proper. (This was only one of two possible endings.) Seeing main character Starkiller as a desiccated metallic husk consumed by the dark side was a bit of a shock, but still pretty cool, regardless.

Landing on Luke Skywalker's home planet of Tatooine, Starkiller is after R2D2 and C3PO… as you might remember from the first Star Wars film, they have the blueprints to the Death Star and the Empire is eager to have them back.

It's great to return to such a familiar locale, and the developers included the majority of elements that players would want to see. Jawas, a destructive trip through Jabba's palace, a Rancor, Boba Fett, and a memorable (yet canon-breaking) showdown with Obi Wan at Mos Eisley spaceport. Without a doubt, this is one of the best, most exciting missions available for Force Unleashed.

The only downside to Tatooine is that the asking price of $10 is a little absurd considering that the mission (start to finish) is only 30-45 minutes long, and all of the Achievements can be earned in the very first playthrough.

Don't get me wrong—I enjoyed it immensely and the content is still quite attractive in terms of graphics and presentation, but there's no way it's worth $10. At half the price, I'd be recommending this to everyone on the Internet. As it stands, it's really good… just not a very good value.

Pretty sure you need to

Pretty sure you need to start a new game and then select the level from the list. I think. unintuitive, i know...

Good

As initially mentioned briefly, stuck in the Sith Ultimate Edition - the only PC for Mac, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will appear - even by the two consoles known character packages as well as the additional emissions in the Jedi Temple and on Tatooine. Exclusive in the new version you can make a detour to the ice world Hoth. Like the previous two DLCs, this section follows the bad end of the main game and shows Starkiller in how he infiltrated during the Imperial attack on the base of the rebel base and it involves personal inter alia Wampas, soldiers of the Alliance and Luke Skywalker receives. Overall, one comes with the three sections, depending on the degree of difficulty on well and like two or three hours of extra entertainment.
