Mac|Life has published a new review of Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition. Brought to the Mac by Aspyr Media the game puts players in the role of Darth Vader's secret apprentice and gives them the chance to unleash the force without restraint. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 3.5 out of 5.

From the review:

You begin the game as Vader himself, rampaging through the Wookiee homeworld and doing a lot of downright mean things to giant brown furballs. As TIE fighters zip past in vast numbers and you Force-blast, -throw, and -strangle everything that moves, you’ll realize two things. It’s fun to be bad. And man, this game has beautiful scenery! As the action moves to new planets like Felucia and old stomping grounds like Cloud City and the Death Star, there’s no shortage of dramatic, sweeping vistas that you’ll pause to savor.

The story itself is pretty interesting too, taking an alternate-history look at what would’ve happened if Vader had an apprentice who eventually surpassed him and stomped through the central scenes of the movies, rewriting history in a fascinatingly evil way. In fact, evil is the other good part of Force Unleashed. The game’s developers went for epic--you can throw the vaste hordes of your helpless victims across stunningly large distances, rip aircraft from the sky and throw them at foes (or friends--it is the Dark Side), or just barbecue them all by dousing them with some good ol’ Force Lightning.
