SW/force unleashed

The Wii Version was a little disappointing,the extra gamemode was great but at a cost the graphic work done is this game isnt even in the same level as the ps3 or 360 versions.Gameplay on the other hand was great,Force Unleashed brings a entertaining story & combat making this a must have for any Star Wars fan.While the game only lasts you about 5-6 hours on normal its still worth it.Bringing a mix of Kotor story type and new combat system,so if your a Star Wars fan this should be on your list if it isnt you should rent it at the least.For someone who isnt I would say give it a try you might enjoy this game.

The game is awesome, the story is awesome, the force is awesome but the lightsaber is ok. First of all the game had pretty good graphics and game play but the lightsaber is a let down the slashes get boring and you end up flicking your wiimote back and forth. I stick with the force which is way more funner. just use the lightsaber for finishing blows and the force for the rest and you are good to go. AMAZING GAME BORING LIGHTSABER!!!!!! So rent or buy it you will be pleased.

Talk about a let down. This game makes the Wii look bad; really bad. And I say this, despite the fact that it doesn't have the engine under the hood like the 360 and PS3 do. The graphics and the physics mechanics are behind last-gen. Hek, Super Mario Sunshine was prettier on the eyes than this game. and Psi-Ops for the PS2 had better response to environments and TK "Force" powers than Force Unleashed does. I hate to go to another Mario comparison, but as long as we're talking about the Wii, Super Mario Galaxy (and Super Smash Brawl for that matter) proved that it can be done WAY better than this, and it can look good doing it.I would have gladly waited 12 months for this game to be done properly.

I guess I also made the mistake of playing the 360 demo and thinking, "Wow, how nice that there is going to be this quality in a Wii game for me to play." Dead wrong was I.

So to tell you how I really feel, this game on the Wii stinks.
