I will try make this review quick and without a lot of content to keep it in the spirit of this game. That's because there's not much to say about this game.

Honestly, when it comes to game play there is nothing to this game. It is the Wii equivalent to a button masher. You can easily make your way through this game without any type of real strategy or skill by wildly swinging your Wii remote and mashing a couple of buttons. Other aspects of this game are also lacking.

The story is mediocre at best. There's nothing really compelling or interesting to it. With long cut scenes in between each duel that you can't skip through it's easy to start losing interest as they add little to story. The rare occasions where your characters talk they say cheesy one liners.

The graphics are unimpressive as well. There will never be a moment in this game where you say "wow, that looks cool". Granted it's animation is based on the Clone Wars series, It still felt like a better job could have been done. As I said they were unimpressive.

In closing, the only that could make this game worth playing is if you played against one of your friends. But that can get old quick, as your arms are sure to tire. So unless you have no game skill, are 7 years old, or have the desire to be completely unchallenged by a game with lackluster elements, do not rent or buy this game.

Bad

Poor compared to Force Unleashed

Compared to the Force Unleashed this game sux. Your force powers are very limited in Clone Wars: lightsaber duels. You only get a force push and can lob a few objects at an opponent. Some of the Sith have force lightning. As far as controlling the light saber there are a few available combos but if you are trying to implement them you will get your butt kicked by an opponent who is simply waving the Wii-mote like a wild man. The graphics are ok, similar to the movie. The highlight of the game is the smack talking the characters say to each other during and after the duel. But, once you've heard them, the playability drops off from there. Unless you enjoy shaking your Wii-mote mindlessly, save your money and rent the Force Unleashed!!!
