Summary: My son, said, totally awesome mom! You got this for me for Christmas! However, with in a matter of weeks, literally he has already beaten the game. He said it would be cool if they could have made it more difficult.
Summary: Yeah, I said it. Best SW game EVER!!! I really liked the Jedi Knight games, and The Force Unleashed brings it to the next level. Better yet, we're finally dealing with an era that hasn't really been touched upon too much. I, personally, am a big fan of the "dark times" era between Episode III and Episode IV. There is a lot of mystery here and a lot of potential for stories with "not-so-happy" endings, which is a great change of pace. Anyway, so yeah, story is great.
Summary: The other 4/5 reviews already nailed it, so I'll keep this short. It's not the best game out there but the graphics are fine and the controls are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. It's the best use of the nunchuk that I have seen. I really don't see how anyone could play this game using an old handheld controller. The freedom you get when you use the wiimote nunchuk combo is the definition of fun and I like moving them around so much.
Summary: If you love Star Wars and you love the Wii, you will love The Force Unleashed. I bought a Wii wishing for a Star Wars game where I can wield a Lightsaber with the Wii-mote and use Force powers with the Nunchuk. Well that dream has come true! Thank God Krome Studios didn't copy the next-gen versions, because this version feels more like Star Wars. The Wii version gets more film accurate powers like Choke and Force Telekinesis!
Summary: I purchased this game for my son as a Christmas gift so my review is based upon my impression of how he likes it. He loves the game and I have to place limits on the amount of time he plays a day. He says the game is fun and challenging. I like the game in that my son is going to play games so why not get him a game that requires him to use more muscles then those that only operate the thumbs? This is why I chose the Wii version over a higher quality video console.
The Force Unleashed is a fantastic game for the Wi

Summary: Despite some rather mediocre reviews on IGN, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is a huge success for the Nintendo Wii for many reasons. 1) The gameplay, which requires the use of the Wiimote and nunchuck, is very engaging and extremely fun to play. The Wiimote is your lightsaber and you can do some incredible lightsaber combos once you master the controls using a combination of motions followed by pressing one or two-buttons on either the Wiimote and/or the nunchuck.
Summary: This is the most fun I've had with the Wii yet. I love this game! The graphics are as good as they can be on the Wii (the resolution can't compete with other consoles), but Wii's interactive controls can't be beat! Feels like you're holding a real light-saber. Hardcore gamers might not like this game (they rarely like licensed games, like Godfather, Hulk, Iron Man, etc.) but if you're any kind of Star Wars fan, buy this NOW.
