Star Wars: The Forced Unleashed 2 Trailer

Guess who's coming back...

Here's another trailer that premiered over the weekend at the Spike TV Video Game Awards.  It was just too good to pass by.  If you've played the first game, you know that it dealt with Galen Marek, Darth Vader's " Secret Apprentice."  Before you say anything, yes there was a comic one-shot based on the game.  
 
An interesting thing about this trailer is the fact that we see Galen, also known as "Starkiller."  Not sure if it's a spoiler for the first game or not since it's been out a while, but in the first game, Marek dies.  If so, how could he be here?  Is he a clone?  Is this following the events of the "Dark Side Ending" of the game?
 
As cool as this trailer is, we don't seem to see any actual gameplay footage.  Also, note the color of his lightsabers.

I didn't like the first game. *At all*. But not to be bias, the teaser itself is cool.

I saw the awesome trailer at the VGA's and my thought on it is this:  
 
Yes, he died, so he could be a clone here. Yet, he seems to have his memories from late in the storyline from the first game (Juno asking if she'll ever see him again). So, unless Vader and/or Palpatine have cloned him from the corpse I don't see how this is possible. 
 
Secondly, If this were the Galen Marek from the Darkside ending then without giving away too many spoilers... he'd look *drastically* different. 
 
Thirdly, the color of his lightsabers doesn't really count for all that much. General Grievous weilded green and blue Lightsabers, theres a story where Boba Fett has a blue one taken from a padawan he killed, IIRC.

That's how you do it, LucasArts, yeah. This is gonna be an excellent game, even better than the first (which is one of my favorite games). I sense it in the Force.

I thought the first game was pretty good... so the sequel should be a barn burner

You know has anyone thought that this game is non cannon and more of a what If.@Satyrquaze said:

Again I see this as more of a what If game. Their was more than one ending in the first game depending on the final choice, this game is just letting us see what would have happened if Starkiller killed Vader and then became Sidious new apprentice.
 
The trailer was nothing special, looks exactly like the first one, but I enjoyed that so I'll probally enjoy this too.

For all we know, when the force is properly wielded you can reseurrect the dead. 
 
btw what about the Halo Reach Trailer? are you going to post that? (i don't mean to be mean or offensive)

I wasn't crazy with the last game at all.  Even tho people didn't like Revenge of the Sith game I thought the controls were a lot of fun, because of the combos you can use with the lightsaber and the verses mode was a lot of fun.   I wasn't to into just picking up everybody and throwing them around, or using lightening on everybody at once.  It was kind of lame.  Bring in more saber comobs and saber use and the game will be better.  Like God of War 2

just watched the trailer and it looks like it's gonna be more powers then lightsabers, weeeeak.

I think that this is going to be an awesome game. From what I gathered from the teaser, he's in some gladiator arena. This is probably the evil ending continuation but i don't think he is  Palpatine's aprentice. He is probably isn't his enemy either, I mean if he was he would kill him and there wouldn't be a episodes IV,V, and VI, unless this is just a bonus storyline, like a possible alternate storyline if episodes IV,V, and VInever happened. but whatever it's going to be, it's going to be awesome, force unleashed is one of my favorite SW games of all time, though, even though this is going to be so freaking cool I would still rather see imperial commandos (sequel to republic commandos) seriously, how did that game get buried under episode III, it sucked. But whatever I can't wait for it's release.

looks better than the prequel

WOW!!!!!! The 2nd game

Posted by thatoneguy

Enjoyed the first when it worked properly. Had game ending glitches occur twice before finally making it thru. Could continue playing, but could no longer level up or get additional powers etc...

Finally! A star wars game that actuelly can be good!

Vader killed him before, then brought him back to life several weeks (or was it months?) later. Perhaps the same happened here. With Yoda and Vader's voices taken into consideration, it may be interesting to wonder if he is still the leader of the Rebel Alliance as he was established as in the first game. (Bail Organa: "And with you leading us, we will have the force on our side.") So perhaps he was resurrected again. To say he is a clone, while possible, doesn't say much about the first time he died (the first Galen killed by Vader would have to be a clone as well). I'm hoping it's the real Galen and that this follows a darker twist to the "Light Side" ending. It'd be pretty intriguing to see that the leader of the alliance now has to go down a dark path for the sake of defeating the empire.

Looks schway and all, but my question is this. WHEN are they gonna make a Boba Fett gamn damn it ?!? We got a Jango game & that was fun. But now I want a Boba game but where you have the ability to roam the galaxy go to diffirent planets to collect bounties. If you don't want to do the straight mission. Similar to how Spidey could roam around NYC in Spider-Man 2 and do little small challenges.

Meh... Honestly, I got bored with the first game, so I'm not psyched for this, but the trailer does compel me to maybe go back and finish the first one... LOL

Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy

ill check it out.. even tho 'the secret apprentice' character doesn't hardly interest me at all. still good gameplay though.

Posted by Sparda

I miss the original Vader's voice. The voice that replaced his just isn't the same.

Posted by ~Mystery~

Idk..will have to see more

Posted by Media_Master

Looks neat, still need to play the first game eventually.

Posted by Omega Ray Jay

Hope the game play has been improved.

im really impressed by that trailer, despite my reservations on how Galen could survive.....
