Rated 10 out of 10 by JRitt Almost as good as Brawl!!!
Being a loyal wii fan, i believe that Super Smash Brothers Brawl is one of the best wii games out there. This is definitely up there. If you're an easy mode player on most games, don't be surprised if you die a lot within the first few hours. For the wii, the graphics are amazing. There is so much more detail in this than in most other wii games. I have only played this game for 4 hours since i have gotten my hands on it and i am not even close to half way through. If you are a big star wars fan, the storyline will have you captivated throughout the entire game. On most attempts for Nintendo to perfect the wii's controls, they have failed horribly. This game however, has the amazing graphics AND controls, something they have not pulled off yet before SWFU. The music in it is INCREDIBLE and i feel as though there is an orchestra playing right in front of me. My main point is if you are looking for a new wii game and want a challenge DO NOT HESITATE TO PICK STAR WARS THE FORCE UNLEASHED!

Force Unleashed is well developed. Good story. Sufficient graphics. Satisfying gameplay. It really adds to the whole star wars experience. Love it
Rated 9 out of 10 by Fright Guy The Force Has Been Unleashed (Wii)
This is a really great game. This is the Star Wars game I've been waiting for. It had some ups and downs. Here's some ups of the game...the graphics are great. Its not another cheapo Star Wars game. You can actually see their face clearly and their noses aren't flat on their face. The sound is great too. I love hearing them scream in agony as your lightsaber goes through them. Its awesome how you can do that. Other ones you just slash at them and force push..but you can lift them up and stab them. Also, you can tell what the backgrounds look like. Now on to the downs....the new technology where you can see the grass sway is not for the Wii. Also you have to swing wiimote to attack and after playing it for awhile my arm ached like crazy. Also, when I try to just plain slash the game makes me jab when I swung it back and forth. If you can over look these few downs its a fun game. Oh and the length of it is a little too short. All in all if you have a chance to get it for Wii, get it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by dep4 The best version!
I have to start off by saying I own the xbox360, psp, ds, and the Wii versions of this great game. The psp and Wii have the same exact story line, where as the xbox360 differs a little and the ds alot. The ds is by far the one to avoid. I love the 360 version. The graphics are amazing, story line great, and you have a few extra force powers the other ones dont. The draw back with this one is there are alot of glitches and Ive actualy had my 360 freeze up twice. But still cant stop playing, the story and gameplay are that enjoyable. Surprisingly though I have to say the Wii version is tops. You still get the great story, a much more emersive experience due to the motion controls, and the graphics are quite good. Biggest thing is there are few if any glitches. Another huge reason to get the Wii version is the Duel mode. Its so cool to able to play some of the greatist moments from all the movies. Dont waste anymore time, run out and get this now, the force is calling you!
Rated 6 out of 10 by Galarodo It is OK
I believe that the game is OK. I mean that the Controls are great, but the game is WAY TO EASY! My friend has the game for 360 and I was sure that the game would be able to change difficulty but NO... it has to be set on ONE difficulty for the Wii! The game itself was good. I loved how you can use the force to make the turrets fire for you. I also like how you can customize your light saber but on my file, I didn't start out with a red color crystal! Then my brother made a file and he had the red color crystal! The game is good but it still has A LOT of bugs to work out. But the Wii version has a duel mode were you can unlock characters in the story mode then play your friends from the same console. You cant go online and challenge someone. It has to be from the same console! Otherwise this game is not worth the *edit* I paid I would definitely rent it for *edit* but it just went by to fast and got old to fast to be more then a couple days at most of amusement!
Rated 9 out of 10 by PatrickM A basic game review.
This game, is in reality pretty amazing. The graphics are very nice, and there really was no glitching. The sound was great, and the game was fun too just go around and blow things up. I do think, that if you want too really enjoy this game, you have too be somewhat of a Star Wars fan, but I dont believe the game is limited too only Star Wars fans. The story was nice, with some twists that made things more interesting. The force powers were splendid, another nice feature was the ability too customize your character, changing things such as ; attire, lightsaber color, power crystals, and your lightsaber hilt. The only thing that I was unhappy with, was that i felt the game was relatively short. My game log, says that I had about five and a half hours of gameplay which I suppose can be considered standard. It just seemed like I flew through it all. But there is definitely the option of replaying on a harder difficulty. The boss fights were very cool, and all in all the game was a great. I would recommend it too anyone.
Rated 6 out of 10 by David J. MacKinnon Doesn't live up to the hype
I remember looking forward to this game, seeing the really awesome trailers and reserving it well in advance. However when I actually played the game I realized that it wasn't as amazing as i hoped. First of all, the graphics are horrible, it seemed like it was a bad port from xbox 360 or ps3. The first level you get to start out as Darth Vader and it's pretty awesome getting to use the force. Once I actually started playing as the apprentice I felt that you didn't have nearly as much power and it wasn't as interesting. After a while the gameplay was repetitive and the controls were alright but I would've preferred one's without the motion sensitivity. The bosses were not very exciting and you always just ended up killing them using a cinematic. I thought it was more fun to just mess around in the game but i never really got to. The only reason why I finished the game was for its storyline. I admit, that was really good. Overall the game was decent but I wouldn't recommend that you buy it. A rental would suffice.
Rated 9 out of 10 by StarWarsGirl90 Lots of Star Wars fun!
As both a proud Star Wars nerd and the owner of a Wii, I just had to try out this game. The idea of swinging my Wii remote around like a Lightsaber? Sign me up! Overall I was very happy with the game, as it was immersive and fun, however there were a couple of minor things about the game that in my opinion could have been better. For starters, the graphics. While not terrible, the Wii version of the game's graphics were not in the league of the PS3 or the 360. That being said, not a big deal. The other thing that, in my opinion, could have been improved was the actual length of the game. I personally beat the game in exactly five hours, but I have read that most people complete it in about six or so. Aside from those two things, however, this game was excellent. I found it to be very easy and uncomplicated, so pretty much anyone could play it. Hope everyone has an excellent gaming experience, and until next time, may the Force be with you.

I pre-ordered this product, and had high hopes for it. The trailers, nintendo channel previews, and etc. made it look great. I picked it up at my local gamestop, and brought it home. I popped it in my wii, and enjoyed it. For about 2 hours. It started getting repetitive after THAT long, and gameplay was lukewarm at best. The force powers held my attention for a little while, but the limited number of powers on the wii system makes things boring. Graphics are horrible for wii, and this game looks like a port from a gamecube. The controls are the only good part of this game, and they actually worked well. However, the lack of being able to control your lightsaber in real time (instead of just randomly swinging the wiimote) really let my expectations down. Maybe this game would be better with wiimotionplus. Maybe not. This game only took me 4 hours to beat, going through and getting every item and achievement. Thats just sad. If you really want to play this game, rent it. If you bought it, at least you'll get a good deal on a trade-in.
Rated 5 out of 10 by REcon1 ok, if you don't have a 360
Now, I'm going to be honest here, i was not at all satisfied with the wii version of this game. I first tried the 360 demo, and i knew that the graphics wouldn't be as good on the wii, but they are god awful. I was expecting a port of the 360 or ps3 version, but the game was completely remade, and not in a good way. The smart AI and all these graphics enhancements it was supposed to have were not even close to the 360 version. I bought it, went home played it for, no joke, 5 minutes, sold it and got the 360 version. Now it's not like there weren't good things about it, the controls were very precise and responded very well, which makes this perfect on the wii. The one thing this game, in my opinion was made for was online play, they took it out of the wii version for some reason. If it had online, i wouldn't have got the 360 version. Over all, if you only have a wii get it. If you have a 360 or ps3 as well, get one of those versions.
