Sam Witwer may be best known as the voice of Maul for The Clone Wars, but before that, he was the voice and face of Vader’s secret apprentice Galen Marek in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Just in, Fandom Games has decided to release an Honest Game Trailer take for TFU to get in the spirit of Revenge of the Fifth.
Check it out:
A long time ago in a console generation far far away, in an era before Disney had enclosed the Star Wars franchise in its icy grip, you could still make a Star Wars game without a billion dollar budget and the franchise wasn’t a divorcee child for the fandom to fight over, one game would rise up to meet the challenge of the times and ripoff God of War but with lightsabers.
While the sequel was pretty terribly received, there was a lot of praise that went toward the first game, seeing as it brought the world of Star Wars to the 2010s era of gaming. Not to mention it had a fascinating story that let you pick the end for Marek, and you would get to figure out whether he would stand for the Light or the Dark.
For now, the spiritual successor of The Force Unleashed is Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and though it doesn’t have the same creative storytelling element, it does have some great lightsaber combat that properly limits Jedi skills, unlike Force Unleashed.
No release date has been set for the Fallen Order sequel yet, but you can check out the game for PS4, Xbox One, and PC today.
