Star Wars The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels Review
21 April 2009
Excerpt: It's games like this that make the wait for the Wii Motion Plus add on, scheduled for release in the UK in the spring, even more excruciating than it already is. Lightsabers and Wii Remotes should be a match made in heaven, but instead it's so far proven to be a match made in the bowels of hell.
Conclusion: Lightsaber Duels is a complete missed opportunity. While it would have been nice to have one to one motion controls for the combat, they weren’t a complete necessity. The game could have still worked well and handled respectably without them. Sadly, the combat is just a mess.
Excerpt: Since the launch of the Wii, legions of wannabe-Jedi, driven by their delusions of grandeur, have had visions of a game that captured the true essence of wielding a lightsaber. After over two years of rumors and speculation, LucasArts finally unleashes Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels for...
Conclusion: Folks, despite the unfortunately limited roster, Krome has more than likely made up for it with the controls/authentic dueling, dialogue, clean visuals and lively arenas. Yes Wii owners, Lightsaber Duels actually does the CG film and TV series justice in terms of graphics surprisingly enough.
Excerpt: Lucasarts' and Krome Studios' Star Wars: Clone Wars probably isn't the Wii-based lightsaber fighting game you're looking for. It does look pretty slick, which is somewhat surprising considering the track record that motion-based fighting games have on Nintendo's console.
Conclusion: All quibbles about presentation and content aside, the game is simply incapable of delivering the sort of fluid gameplay the concept demands. There's no flow or grace to the fights, just frustrated gesticulation as you try to bludgeon your way past a control scheme unfit for human consumption.
Conclusion: Eure Jedi-Robe könnt ihr mit enttäuschtem Auge im Kasten hängen lassen. Am besten ihr kauft euch ein Zimmermädchenkostüm, denn dieses würde besser zu eurem „Staubwedel“…äähh…. zu eurer Wii Fernbedienung passen.
Pros: Originalstimmen, Filmsequenzen aus dem Film "Clone Wars“, Laserschwert schwingen auf der Wii
