  • Summary: I am not one of those guys who are all instincts and reflexes; I do not excel at arcade/action games. I found Unleashed pretty challenging right from the beginning, and I haven't gotten very far. Unleashed requires you perfect specific combos and moves in order to succeed. You must always push forward - there's no real opportunity to sit back and consider your moves, or retreat and regroup. Upgrades happen through enemy defeat and failure (death) penalizes you.

  • Pros: The Wii remote and Nunchuck controls.
  • Cons: The story and pretty much the whole game

Not overly impressed

  • Summary: The Wii version of this game had some nice bonuses over the PS3 and 360 version. The Wii controler system adds an element to the game, that the other systems lack. The multiplayer duel system is fun, but doesn't make up for the poor graphics. I played the 360 demo and realized that the Wii graphics would be less impressive, but I was not prepared for how poor the game looks. The game controls that make the Wii version so unique are also one of the major flaws.

complete waist

  • Summary: this game was advertised as being in working condition, however it is not. The game constantly crashes on video sequences and forces you to unplug the wii to do anything. this is likely going to lead to damage to my wii. I have tested on 2 different machines now and dug out an sd card with an old save file to check the problem wasn't just the 1st video sequence. all my tests show the game is completely useless.

Hope raised and dashed

  • 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 screen and quite frankly there is no room for finesse when attacking with it - just wave wildly and it all makes the same difference.

Star Wars: The Waggle Unleashed

Shocksusp..., Ciao
4 November 2009
  • Excerpt: "...game is better than the Star Wars prequels and it shows. The story is the best part of the game, despite the whole new array of unfamiliar characters. The gameplay is average, put bluntly. As you waggle the wiimote to swing your saber you can push forward the nunchuck to force push and..... in terms of motion control that's it. You press c to strike lightining, press another button to jump and hold down Z to grab objects. There is some motion control ...
  • Pros: Great story, controls may appeal to some
  • Cons: Dated graphics, repetitive, cheats which can't be turned off, not much replay value

Very hard controls to master and slow reaction time

K. F. Baker, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I love Star Wars and after reading some reviews I decided to purchase this game rather than the Lego alternative. I went through the tutorials first so that I learnt the controls and how the Wii responded to the remotes movements. After playing for over 2 hours I can't get passed the first level! I know everyone's going to find this funny but the view doesn't keep up with the characters and there are way too many 'moves' to remember (like Harry Potter!).

Under 6 Hours of Gameplay

Maverick, amazon.co.uk
7 October 2008
  • 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. I finished the main game, in no particular rush, in 5 hours and 45 minutes. Surely that alone is enough to convince you that this is one to pick up second hand (if at all).

Rent it

  • Summary: Rented it last week and completed it within days. Far too easy and repetitive. Loved it at the start but looking back, it really not the game I hoped for. I recommend renting it for a couple of days before spending your hard earned money on it!
