Wonderfully intriguing storyline and fantastic use of wii controller capabilities!!! Super fun and catchy only complains are the length (kinda short considering how much fun i was having) and the ending (which I guess needed to be like that to fit in with the star wars movies, none the less, upsetting!)

A Good Idea, Followed with Poor Delivery

The lack of any polish whatsoever is so prevalent in this game, that there is no doubt that this software was rushed out the door. However, I tend to keep graphics out of the equation as that is not what makes a good game good. What suffers the most in this effort is the controls. The camera is sporadic and more often than not points the opposite direction you wish it too, and the action cut-scenes tend not to work.

After playing the Xbox 360 version of this game, it is safe to say that the Xbox version was created with more love and care, and is by far the Wii version's superior. If have a choice, go for a different platform. If you don't, this version will do just fine with what it did right.

I was very excited when I received this game in the mail, as a Star Wars fan, anything where I could become a character in the story was very exciting to me.
The game was a lot of fun to play, and with the interactive protion of it, you really worked up a sweat using the Force and Lightsaber controls.

The hardest part of the game was getting past the Jedis, it seemed like whenever you were about to beat him, he would re-charge, and you would have to start all over again.
