There have been plenty of Star Wars games over the years. One of the most notable is Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. It was released when no live-action movies were coming out, so it was up to the game to entertain the Star Wars audience.

Not only did the action-packed title satisfy plenty of the franchise's fans, but it also appealed to general action game admirers. It's understandable as the title was very enjoyable and pretty original for the time. But that's not to say that there's never been another game like it. In fact, here are several of them that TFU fans should check out.

7 Devil May Cry 5

One of the best things about The Force Unleashed is its high-octane, hack-and-slash combat. It's a type of gameplay that the Devil May Cry series has long perfected. And in DMC5, that signature brand of action is the most polished it's ever been.

The story isn't bad, either, as you follow three demonic warriors as they go on a quest to bring down a Demon King named Urizen. It can be a little silly and over-the-top at times, but it's surprisingly compelling, mainly due to the mysterious nature of the newcomer to the series, V.

6 Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic

While everyone has their favorite Star Wars games, Knights Of The Old Republic is generally considered among the best. If you've played other Bioware RPGs, you know what to expect with this one: likable companions, interesting conversations, and a morality system.

Plus, as with most Bioware games, it includes an engaging story as you play as a force-sensitive character of your own creation, who goes on a mission to stop the sith lord known as Darth Malek. While it starts a little slow, it ends up being arguably one of the best Star Wars stories ever told. But you'll still probably get distracted from the main objective many times due to the excellent optional content.

5 Dishonored

Dishonored is perhaps not a game you consider when thinking of titles like The Force Unleashed. After all, the first-person - and sometimes stealth - gameplay is very different from the hack-and-slash of the Star Wars title. Yet, the game shares similarities when it comes to its structure.

In Dishonored, every mission involves you going to a distinct area in search of a target. This is similar to how Starkiller operates, particularly in the early stages of the Force Unleashed. So, if you feel that The Force Unleashed goes downhill after you stop hunting Jedis, then Dishonored might be a good way to scratch that itch.

4 Mass Effect: Legendary Edition

While slicing through people is a lot of fun in The Force Unleashed, it's equally enjoyable using your slew of force powers. The Mass Effect series also incorporates similar abilities called biotics. In the trilogy, the protagonist can have many more of these abilities at their disposal than Starkiller as long as you pick a biotic-based class.

The hero might need the best biotic abilities during the Legendary Edition as, throughout three games, they have to stop the galactic threat posed by The Reapers. In the process, you have plenty of interesting conversations and partake in some tight third-person cover shooting.

3 Infamous

The similarities between The Force Unleashed and Infamous go deeper than just their similar-looking protagonists. Like Starkiller, Infamous' main character, Cole, has all sorts of powers. And like Darth Vader's apprentice, he is a lot more powerful than most people around him.

So, if one of your favorite things about The Force Unleashed is how overpowered you feel, Infamous may be for you. Cole gets his super electrical abilities at the start of the game when he's caught in an explosion. For the rest of the adventure, you decide whether you use them for good or evil. Not only do your choices change the story, but it also impacts how the world sees you.

2 Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

There are plenty of similarities between Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and The Force Unleashed. The easiest comparison to make is in the combat, as like the Star Wars game, MGSR is all about slashing through groups of enemies and machines. The protagonist, Raidan, is even more overpowered than Starkiller. While playing, you feel like an indestructible force.

Yet, more difficult enemies appear as bosses. These fights are as big and impactful as those in the Star Wars title. They also serve as key moments during the title's entertaining story, which has little to do with the previous MGS games, so there's no reason to be concerned if you're a newbie to the series.

1 Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

The Force Unleashed is regularly complimented for its solid story, likable characters, and exciting combat. That exact same praise could be given to Jedi: Fallen Order, albeit it's a bit more of a grounded adventure than TFU. For instance, the protagonist isn't some sort of force-wielding god, so he has to be more tactical during battles. Plus, it has more exploration and Metroidvania elements than the other title.

Fallen Order is an excellent game in its own right. In fact, its lightsaber combat is perhaps the best the franchise has ever provided. Not to mention, Cal's journey from padawan in hiding to the last hope of the Jedi order is a brilliant one.
