After having a lot of Force Unleashed skins on the site recently, many of them Starkiller re-skins, it is an interesting change to have a Force unleashed Stormtrooper! This particular variant is the Shadow Stormtrooper.
As with any Force Unleashed themed file, I am getting the urge to moan about how its unfair that The Force Unleashed is available on every other platform except the PC! But there we go…with any luck Lucasarts may possibly maybe perhaps port it to the PC one day! Don’t hold your breath for that though. :P
Anyway, on with the review!
Here we have a fairly simple reskin of the Stormtrooper model, but it makes a big difference. The main body of the armour is now a light grey colour, with a ‘shiny shader’ added to it. Then around specific areas we have some nice glowy bits, which pulse very slowly. The skin also has team skins, where the glowy bits are obviously the same as the team colours. Although the default skin has blue glowy bits, the blue team skin seems to have ever so slightly darker glowy areas, but it is difficult to tell the difference. Personally I really think this is something to be worked on for the future, definitely make the blue team skins glowy bits a darker shade of blue, or something similar, to make it easier to differentiate between the two.
The file also includes two other skins, although you have to enter a console command to get them, since they are not selectable from the skin selection menu. For next time I would definitely suggest making these selectable from the skin selection menu.
First we have a cloaked Shadow Stormtrooper, the console command for which is;
This variant is, as the name suggests, cloaked! The cloak shader used looks very impressive too, and I think the idea of a cloaked Stormtrooper is a cool idea.
Secondly we have the Shadow Stormtrooper Officer, the console command for which is;
This variant is really just the same as the default Shadow Stormtrooper, although this has the officers shoulder pauldron (shoulder pad).
All in all I think this is a great set of skins here, although I think there are a few things that could be improved. If you are a fan of The Force Unleashed, or just like the look of this skin, then give it a download! :)
