Good story. Bad game

Summary: As a Star Wars fan, I really wanted to like this game. Sadly, I was disappointed. There's really nothing to it once you get the controls down. It's just a typical hack and slash. I had hoped for something that required a little bit of skill, but ultimately, it's a "button pusher," or in the case of...
Summary: This game on the Wii system was one of the bigger disappointments of my gaming life, and my life in general. I was anticipating amazing graphics, physics, enviornments, AI, and excellent controls. I was let down severely in all of these areas.
Excerpt: after playing the demo on xbox 360 and seeing the videos I was extremely disappointed by this game. There is repeating on levels, and the force powers aren't that strong. I suspect this to be a cut down version on the wii. Hope it's better on other consoles.
Certainly faulty, but Star Wars fans may get a kick, just not on this version

Excerpt: OK, I want to get one thing out of the way. If you own a PS3 or an Xbox 360 as well as a wii, get it for the HD console. Why? I'll tell you. The Force Unleashed suffers for the wii, mainly due to the fact it just looks a whole lot worse than its HD competition.
Summary: The Wii was made for the lightsabre genre of games.... I couldn't wait to buy this game when it came out expecting it to mare real all my childhood lightsabre based dreams. This was crushed by the horrible interaction system - what you do with the wiimote has no real relevance to what happens on...
Summary: I was really looking forward to this game, all the preview stuff looked fantastic, but in the end it left me disappointed. I got this yesterday and have already completed the game in around 7.5 hours - the multiplayer mode may give some added playtime, but if you want to play this game I would rent...
Summary: This game promised so much but in the end it fails to deliver. The graphics are not great. OK, the wii is best used for cartoon graphics and can't compete with the high end consoles but some of the backgrounds and explosions are pathetic.
Summary: I really wanted this game to be great, I'd have settled for good, I've ended up with disappointing. There are some good points - the graphics aren't bad for the wii and, let's face it, you get to play with lightsabres and 'using the force'.
Summary: A long time ago, in a city far, far away I wanted to really have a light sabre and fight (nicely) with my mates. We played with brooms or brollies and made our own humming sounds. It was great.
Summary: I don't have much to add to what's been said already. This game is OK- poor camera control, average graphics, a lack of the promised lightsabre control with the Wiimote, linear storytelling... all of these have been discussed at length.
