Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Achievements

Get A Grip

Defeat the trials without the sphere turning red  

Halfway through the level you will see a cutscene with your father and afterwards you have to face the trials.

As you stand on the platform, look towards the blue/white ball and use your force grip, then move the ball along the line to the other side, if you move the ball to far the line it will go red.

There are 3 sections you have to move the ball along, there is no time limit so just move slowly.

This achievement was very challenging, I had to literally stand next to the TV. However, with time and patience I finally got it. My advice is not to doubt yourself, stay positive, that's how I did it on my fourth try :)

I know what you're saying. I've tried it several times and still haven't gotten it.

I can't believe that these DLC packs are still 800 MS points. How long has this
game been on release? Even it's sequel's DLC is priced lower... sadness..

Because TFU2 was received horribly as is, they know people won't pay full price for upgrades to something most people didn't even like.

Strangely enough, this is probably the most difficult achievement in the game.

ok evryone, this achiv is GLITCHED!! why?! because you DONT NEED to move fast at flashing blue line. NO! just STAY at blue line. when it disapear, just dont move (you can but to be sure that you dont have red just dont), when it shows move slowly to the end. I have done like that, and this achiv pop-up few seconds ago ;)

I understand what he said and it does work. Step one, take the whole thing
slowly and cautiously. When you get to the 3rd part where there is a flashing
curve just go along it like you would have with all the other curves. When the
curve disappears DON'T MOVE THE ORB, continue when the curve reappears. Nice n'
easy =)

The key that no one has mentioned is to only use the right joystick, do not
touch the left one. If you try to use both joysticks it will seem glitched
and you will waste an hour like I did. Otherwise, you can either try to get
the middle curve on the third puzzle in one shot, or you can go slowly each
time it appears for about 2 seconds and repeat 3 times.

wow.. it took a couple tries.. and Future, the achievement is NOT glitched..
wow.. really? you ever think maybe its supposed to be like that? maybe your
not supposed to know where the line is exactly at that part? ..... this wasnt
very difficult.. just saying.

This is the worst achievement ever. I've been working at this for years now and it's driving me insane. Does anyone have any good advice? I've tried going slow, taking my time, getting close to the TV, everything listed here but the distortion of the orb makes it impossible for me to see where I really am, does anyone have advice with dealing with that?

distortion is a pain yes but the line meets the orb dead centre so go slow indeed
if you like play around on the first one to find where the orb goes red gives you room to move
when the flashing line dis-appears don't move at all

Did this on my first try. The key is patience. You're not timed, so go as slow as you need to, and keep it as steady as you can. You also only need to use the Right Stick, not the left one. The only part where you have to hurry is on the 3rd one, with the disappearing line. The only thing I can say about that is to go as quick as you can as soon as it comes back.

I got this on my first try, perhaps by luck. I played on apprentice. I used only the right thumb stick and never pushed it for more than one second. I just went slow and steady. Yes, you want to rush to the end, but it is best that you do not. And don't worry about the disappearing line on the third one. I just stayed still the first time it went out, and kept moving the second time and still got the achievement. Happy Hunting!

I'm not sure why this seems to be so tough. It's the simplest achievement and it ends up being the most difficult. I will get this one done. On my way to complete this game.

That was definitely a challenge. Took me a few tries to figure out what I was doing wrong, but wound up getting it without getting too frustrated. The key really is to take it very slowly, and make sure you DO NOT touch the left stick at all. If you can't be very patient with this, getting it will be practically impossible.

I can confirm, that like they have stated above is correct but I just like to note what I found also.
On the last part where the bottoms curve disappears and reappears, I found that I was only able to stop there once as the second time resulted in a red ball.
I just want to thank everyone who has commented so far on this it helped me a lot in getting this achievement today

ok....everyone had some awesome tips on here the one that helped me the most was just using the right analog stick...every time I used the left and right analog stick I would make it more complicated. It was a breeze after all. thanks everyone.
