Summary: If you're unsure about buying this game - as I was initially - stop thinking about it and just get it. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed has given me the most addictive and enjoyable game experience I've had on any platform in a long time. Heck, it has made me love my Wii more than ever.
Pros: Very fun game! Perfect game for fans and non-fans of Star Wars. Highly recommend the Wii version for the ability to control your saber and force powers with your hands. Graphics are better than I expected
Cons: Some little bugs here and there. A little short
Summary: I've played this on the XBOX and its just a boring, repetitive dungeon crawl. But the motion control on the Wii makes it an entirely different game with a very fun feel to it. Most Star Wars fans wish they could be a Jedi and this game is as close as you can get.
Pros: This game is awesome thanks to the motion control capability of the Wii. Your light saber and force powers are motion controlled so you almost feel like a Jedi as you're force pushing enemies off a cliff. There are a lot of force powers that take time to master their various motion controls. Its ...
Cons: Extremely short. It took about 8 hours of total game time to beat. There's almost no penalty for dying which makes things very easy. Very linear story/world. There's no side quests or exploration... just keep moving forward and killing everything in your way.
Not necessarily what we've been waiting for, but good for now

Summary: Let's sweep the negatives first so they're not ignored: - The camera is ridiculous. You'll wish you could do to the camera what you can do to your opponents. I routinely found myself running away from enemies just to get the camera in an angle where I could see them.
Summary: This game is getting some really sour reviews. I do understand them to a point. There are several force move combos performed for you for simply holding the wii remote/nunchuk in the right direction, rather than you creating the combo yourself.
Summary: I'm only a casual gamer, but I've played almost all previous LucasArts titles (mostly on the PC) and loved them. My favorite games have been in the Jedi Knight series. Force unleashed gives that first-person gameplay style a new dimension on the Wii.
Summary: The graphics are not great. Its kind of a fuzzy version of Wii Zelda. And you cannot destroy or affect all items in the environment as has been said/advertised. There are many, many items and sometimes you can destroy panels along the wall. But not everything is damagable or usable.
Summary: This is an awesome game, fun to play and has a really interesting plot. It's biggest flaw is that it's too short. I was able to beat it in 5 hours. It's much better to rent it, but it's worth the play!
Summary: I bought TFU yesterday and have had a hard time stopping my play time since. The controls are great! Slash away like a maniac with the Wii remote and your character does the most beautiful combos. But my favorite is in the left hand. The nunchuck force delivery system!
