Which version did you play? They’re all decent, but I particularly like the motion controls of the Wii version. It feels like you’re doing force pushes and big slams, so despite the lower quality visuals and physics it’s more fun. It is for me one of the great Star Wars games.

360 version. I do have the Wii version somewhere, but the 360 had a download I got for free with Games With Gold many moons ago, plus achievements are more than enough to win me over to go through a game (Even if this game takes awhile before giving out the more higher point ones).

I heard good things about the Wii versions, even some reviewers scoring the sequel higher on Wii than on other platforms, so maybe some other time.

Just completed Shenmue 1. I have never played it before and am glad i did. I can certainly see how it would have blown everyone away when this first came out.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint - it's technically ropey, it's yet another Ubi open world game but it's actually a lot of fun. That said, I've been playing it in co-op most of the time and that generally improves everything.


I recently finished Need For Speed Heat which is exactly what you'd expect it to be. And Star Wars Fallen Order which was really good but bogged down in some of the dullest puzzles of all time.

Star Wars The Force Unleashed II (360)

Wow, was this short. Got excitied ending my first session knowing I was going to Degobaa and Boba Fett was in the game, then the second session I beat the game....huh. There were some good moments but it ultimately ends too soon, goes really nowhere which is a shame as the concepts for a 3rd game sounded interesting enough, and the game itself seems to struggle playing on my 360 (A lot of freezing and unfreezing, could be where I have the download saved but whatever.)

Still.....Force Pushing Ewoks in the DLC campaign is way more fun than it should be. :lol:

Bit of a letdown, I would be pretty angry if I spend £40-50 for this back in the day but thank god this was a past Game with Gold.

Oh well, least this means I can go straight to Deadpool now.

Just completed Spider-man on the PS4 and i am now mopping up the trophies. Wow what a game. The faces on the characters in the cut-scenes are so realistic it was like i was watching a real film. They have got the web swinging perfect. So much fun swinging through the streets of New York. The combat was really well done as well. And the ending was really emotional.
Absolutely loved it. Shame it had to end. Looking forward to a sequel.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna the Golden Country

This was a great DLC follow up to my fav gme of all time. While the combat was some refinements, I prefer the main game as there was a lot more meat in regards to story and experimenting with Blades and such, but then Torna is a DLC prequel with those shortcomings but still a lot to do side quest wise anyway, and pretty damn good ending. Maybe someday we'll see Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Definitive Edition with the battle refinements in the base game, turn the DLC into a full game with extra areas (Its set 500 years in the past, so lets see those other countries from the main game back then.), and other QOL improvements both need like the texture loading when you first boot up.

But anyway, going right back in to conquer both New Game + and Bringer of Chaos difficulty for a 100% run, then doing the same on the base game after.

Unmothered on the Switch really enjoyed it until the huge difficultly spike on the final section/last boss.
