Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Sells a Million Units, Despite Critics
As the release date for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed drew close last week, many fans were disappointed to hear early reviews that rated the game somewhere between “terrible” and “mediocre.” Good thing the power of the Star Wars brand coupled with the inclusion of some insane Force powers can overcome even the harshest criticism. VGChartz is reporting that the game has sold over one million copies since its release last week. Most of those sales were for the Xbox 360 apparently, while the rest were evenly distributed among the other systems. Personally, I’m glad to hear most people were able to look past the flaws (which were admittedly numerous) to enjoy the great game underneath it all. Sure the camera and controls were kind of wonky, and some enemies and bosses were annoyingly tough (whoever came up with the “Purge Troopers” needs to be smacked upside the head); but it still had one spectacular story and some of the best Force powers this side of Psi-Ops.
