Bad

This game leads you around with a leash

I couldn't make it past the practice run in this game. It felt like the game controls took control. When using the force, you aim in one direction, but the force shoots out in a direction you didn't aim. There are parts of the game where you need to walk across narrow path ways, you just need to move in the general direction and the controls lock you onto the path then you just need to generally walk in the direction you need to go, no skill involved. Same with jumping, jump in the general direction of that 2' X 2' pedestal you need to land on and it will lock you on. Not at all like a Mario Galaxy, where the platforming is challenging. I decided to send this one back, not sure my 6 year old would even find this one challenging.

I've played this game about an hour and I enjoyed it. The graphics are nice but could be better. The gameplay is fun once you get used to the controls. It took me some time to realize when I'm using the force on an object I need to constantly tap Z instead of holding it.

In some missions you play as the Jedi in others as the clone soliders and both are fun. As a Jedi you swing the remote back and forth to attack (sorry no fancy Wii motion plus battles). As a clone soldier you aim at the screen with your remote and shoot your enemies.

If anyone has played TMNT I can tell you that the style of that game is very similar to this one. It is definitely a fun game but I suggest renting before buying it.
