A wonderful gap-filler to the StarWars story

Summary: Hearing from other reviewers, you might not want to even look at this game. Gamers scaring others away with things like "horrible graphics" or "stupid gameplay options". I'll try to clear those up as I can. Graphics: the Bad: when your cape flaps it breaks the character's figure. the facial emotions of the character are horrid.
Summary: Given this is a Wii game where the graphics and controls are not always as smooth as say a PS3 or an xbox, I thought this game was exceptional. I am tired of hearing everyone rating down Wii games because of the graphics and gameplay. Its a Wii there is only so much they can do with it and you should have known that when you bought the system. I think this was a great game because it was tons of fun with the force combos, lighting and my favorite the lightsaber throw!
Summary: This game is an awesome addition to any Wii collection, especially Star Wars fans. The concept of swinging your wii remote to swing your lightsaber is amazing, as well as thrusting your nunchuk forward to force push. Although the single player mode is on the easy side, it's a perfect game to play just for fun. Great story, cool concepts such as upgrades, and a very amusing one on one multiplayer lightsaber battle mode. I say buy it. It's a fun one.
Summary: I admit, I'm not a big gamer, however every once in a while a game comes around that appeals to my interests and makes me want to try it out. TFU was one of those very games. Here are the pros and cons to my experience with the game: Pros: Great use of the Wii controllers: This was probably by far the best way to actually PLAY and CONTROL the game. I tried to use the PS3 controller when I played that version but it did not compare to the experience on the Wii.
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! I've already maxed out my force push to the point where I can dispatch 1/2 dozen stormtroopers with one push.
Summary: I don't want to echo what a lot of other reviewers have already said. Yes, the graphics in this game are definitely inferior to the 360 and PS3 versions BUT I can't imagine the other versions of the game being nearly as satisfying an experience as this one. Pushing a button to do execute a force push just can't feel the same as actually doing a pushing motion with your hand and seeing your enemies fly back on the screen.
Summary: The story behind this new entry into the Star Wars universe starts with Darth Vader being sent to Kashyyyk by Palps in order to track down a Jedi that survived Order 66 and the Jedi purge. Vader lands on the planet in his shuttle, and you proceed to kick some serious Wookie butt. The Stormtroopers you see are a nice blend of the Clone Trooper outfit and the newer Storm Trooper outfit, you can see the progression.
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. With some of the flying troopers, I never was able to see them no matter what I did. There is the ability to lock the camera on boss opponents, but that was only a little less useless.
