Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition Description
Reviews By Book B : Date November 15, 2010
Ok. I bought this for $39.95 at the Apple Store because I wanted to play the Hoth, Tatooine and Jedi Temple levels. I played the game originally on the Playstation 3, and liked it very much, but I did not buy the Sith edition which had the other levels (did not know this otherwise I would have both the Sith edition for PS3). Everywhere I look the PS3 Sith version is being scalped by crooks on eBay for $100+. So I decided to get it for my Mac and try to play the extra levels and get the story that way for only $39.95 +tx. I also have an Xbox 360, but the Xbox360 version is not much cheaper than the PS3 crooked version.
Ok. Performance. The graphics on the Mac (or computer version), is noticeably sharper and cleaner than the console version (PS3). It’s pretty clear that the console version graphics are probably less detailed and “beautiful” so that it will work at a decent frame rate. But I did like the PS3 version and I thought the graphics were also good there. The Macintosh I have is a 2010 21.5″ iMac. It has a 512MB Radeon 5670 graphics (decent but not great), 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz (more than enough), and a 3.6 GHz Core i5 processor (fastest dual core out there) with a 1 TB hard drive, running MacOS 10.6.4. I play the game at 1920×1080 resolution which is the native resolution of the iMac screen (21.5″). If I play at lower resolutions it just crops in on the left and right or top and bottom.

I picked up this game expecting a good LucasArts game. I was very disappointed.
While the game can be fun at times, the playability is really not up to what I’d expect and most of the challenges are just flat out annoying. The character has to have a lot of things like overly dramatic light sabre slashes that (if you happen to be facing the wrong direction) will make your character fall off into an abyss, long after you’ve killed your opponent. And when your character gets hit by an enemy, there is so much cinematic physical action, that it can literally take forever for your character to get back on his feet–meanwhile, your enemies are re-loading and hitting you again. This kind of play which puts all the eggs into the basket of neat-o cinematic action sequences really leaves the gaming experience a marathon of frustration and jerky gameplay.
And let’s not forget to mention that you’ll need the latest and greatest (specialized) hardware to play this game. I ran this game on my brand new MacBook Pro 17″ and had to run it at 800×600 resolution, just to get decent playability. I’d have loved to play at native 1920×1200 resolution, but that nearly killed my system and the game was entirely unplayable.

I have a brand new iMac 21.5″, and the game runs VERY SLOWLY on any but the 800×600 resolution. If you go to [...], they specifically state that their ported version does not support the nVidia GeForce 8400m that is standard with the iMac. The graphics are great at the higher resolutions, but you play at a snail’s pace (a friend has the XBOX version, and it is 10x faster than the fastest on this version).
