The 4th shall be with you with these excellent titles.
It's May 4th, and you know what that means – well, besides the free comic book day and the Kentucky Derby. It's Star Wars celebration time, and people everywhere are watching movies or partaking in other Star Wars-related nerdiness. And why not? It's a great saga to celebrate…even counting The Phantom Menace.
So with that, we've got a list of five Star Wars games that we heartily recommend playing today, if only to get in the spirit of the 4th. You may not agree with every game on this list, but we think they're certainly worthy of the Star Wars legacy. And they're not too hard to come by, to boot.
Without further ado…
1. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360)
Before you go scoffing at this choice, think about this. You're playing a dude with Jedi/Sith powers. And, for that matter, a bad-ass apprentice who can lay out someone with lightning attacks, fancy lightsaber moves (we're throwing them at everyone) and Force holds, with everything from hurling a Stormtrooper off the balcony to crushing a TIE Fighter like a walnut. Having that kind of power is awesome as you romp through this great action sequel, and though the story meanders a bit, it's well worth letting off some steam with.
