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: 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.
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: This is pretty fun, especially if you like to play Star Wars games. The storyline is pretty neat considering it helps to fill in the gap between Episodes 3 and 4. This includes how the rebellion was started, which was something completely new to me. Pros: 1) You get to use Sith force powers 2) You get to take down all sorts of creatures from the Star Wars universe including storm troopers and rebels 3) The ability to tweak your lightsaber by collecting items a) ability...
Summary: Ok.. So I'll start saying that I dont own this game, I rented it 'cause I wanted to try it first... Having said that, I also have foud the key strong points are: - Adequate Graphics. I own a Wii so I bet the xBox or PS3 are far better, but this one looks very ok. - Great sound. Nobody pays attention to music, but this game has a lot of it and you feel like youre actually on a movie. - You are on the dark side!!! At least!
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. You can really get immersed in the game by using the nunchuk to push/toss/fry stormtroopers or pick up objects to toss at your enemies (great stress relief). There are enough force powers to try to master, also.
