I must say, the 'Starkiller' skins have sure flooded onto the site like Reborns onto... well, JK2 files. Fortunately this one is different than all the others. How so, you may ask? Well... IT"S GOOD. HOLY CRAP.
Let's start by quoting Nozy's review of the last version, shall we?
Following on from his popular Starkiller 1.1 skin, Raziel here brings us a new update to this skin.
Before I start complaining about how The Force Unleashed should really be coming to the PC and how annoyed I am that it isn’t, I better get on with the review!
As I said last time I feel the choice of HapSlash’s Anakin Skywalker model to reskin was a good idea. The armour, which has been adjusted slightly from last time fits well on the model. The parts of the armour that have been changed are the breast and back plates, which have been trimmed down a bit, and now look a better shape in my opinion. The strapping around the arms has also been adjusted, as has the belt. Also the colour of the robes, and the texture on them seems to have been changed subtly as well.
We also have team skins, though these don’t seem to have been changed since last time, it appears that the main changes were made to the default skin.
Now, things that could be improved upon. Again, as I said last time, I do feel that there should have been some red and blue versions of the default skin, because people may not recognise the blue and red team skins as representing Starkiller. That said however, the team skins are distinctive and I think they look cool! Lastly, for next time I think it would be cool to try and include some bit support in there.
Overall though another good skin here from Raziel, I look forward to seeing more from you mate!
New Sounds: No Bot Support:No Team Support: Yes
As Nozyspy stated twice in his reviews of the previous versions of this file, the HS Anakin model fits this skin very well and the armor looks very realistic on it. The different parts of the tunic, armor, and various little doodads all fit the model very well and nothing really looks out of place... EXCEPT: Bum bum bum, the lips. Yes, the lips look very odd; especially from the side. They just look unnatural. Another small problem I see is on the sides of the tunic the belt is choppy and doesn't line up.
That being said, let's move on to what's new in this version. The author added a slit into the back of the armor; segmented armor plates are very 'in'. He also removed the 'black kneepad things' and added new team skins, and trust me, they are spectacular. Just as high quality as the default skin. For blue team we have a lightside version, with a tan tunic and a yin-yang symbol on his white armor. For red team we now have the polar opposite - jet black clothing, deathly white skin, and fiery sith eyes. My favorite out of the 3 version though is still the normal skin; I just love the rugged appearance of him.
Also included in this mod is a version of what the author thinks Starkiller's saber would have looked like. It is a nice skin in itself, and a good add-on to this great skin. Unfortunately, no new sounds have been included and neither has bot support.
