Summary: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for the Nintendo Wii is a fun, if not spectacular, experience. The hardcore gamer will find little to rave about, but it is, after all, a game for the Nintendo Wii.
A fun game, but pretty short and not much replay value

Summary: After having tried this game again I had to write another, more comprehensive review. Thankfully, "The Force Unleashed" proved to be much more enjoyable than I'd initially thought. My first impression was bad because of several factors: 1.
Summary: pros: Great storyline, good effects, very fun mimicing force moves with the Wii-mote (pretend you're a Jedi!) Cons: Game is too short, you can't play for short periods because you have to wait until the end of the level/chapter before it saves your place in the game (even if you do a manual save, it...
Summary: All in all a good buy if your looking for mindless action and being able to use the Wiimote as a lightsaber. I traded it in for Assassins creed on PS3 and am much happier.
Pros: Is extremely fun for the first time being able to use the Wiimote as a lightsaber, the multi player is pretty well setup and had no problems of getting use to the gameplay at all.
Cons: Graphics are pretty bad but then again Wii isn't a graphic heavy system ( we all knew that when buying it). The game gets extremely boring after getting to the middle or so due to everything looking exactly the same. And the lightsaber moves are not freehand. You may be swinging in one directing ...
Summary: I heard that the xbox360 graphics look great, but the Wii is just not about graphics. It's about swinging the wii remote and that's what you get.
Pros: Sweet light saber action. You won't get this in any other console. Quick load times. Lightsaber moves are easy to learn and control style is pretty simple.
Cons: Graphics are really lame. Some of them look like N64 graphics. Also, the game only takes about 8 hours to beat. That means you power gamers could beat it in one day. Very disappointing ending, but I won't spoil it. If you've seen the movies, you basically know what is going to happen at the end.
Summary: Storyline wise, I would have to say they destroyed Vader's character. They keep making him so weak in all these "tweener" type settings. I played through it 5 times to max the powers, and when I did max them all, I realized the powers I had maxed out first were the ones that had the most power.
Pros: Well, it's Star Wars. It was Semi-Fun as I played it.
Cons: There is no difficulty level setting. Duel Mode (built just for the Wii) can not be played via the internet, and also cannot be played against CPU. Graphics were terrible. There is no path that the apprentice takes, he does the exact same story up until the last fight. Good Ending: Attack Emperor...
Summary: I am tempted to trade it in and get the PS3 version, or maby sell it for some cash to get the Fallout 3 Collector's Edition.
Pros: Pretty fun the first time you play, and the battle against Vader is AWESOME!
Cons: Skiped school to get it the day it was released...it really is that bad. Number one con is NO BACKHAND SABER! THE reason I bought this game! The PS3 and 360 are the only ones that have it. Next, I beat it in 6 1/2 hours the day i got it. Started again the next day and beat it in 5 hours, with 187...
Summary: I loved every bit of playing this game, as well as the storyline. As a longtime Star Wars fan, it was a lot of fun. However, there is not much there. I believe I finished the entire game in just under 9 hours of gameplay.
Star Wars fan loves it, gamer slightly disappointed

Summary: 1) The gameplay was fun. Controlling the force powers and lightsaber was a slightly complicated, but unique experience. This is a very active Wii game. 2) The story line was pretty cool from a Star Wars fan a little tired of the clone wars. 3) The graphics were worse than my old x-box.
