Game Profile

Star Wars™: The Force Unleashed™ will come to the Wii™ home videogame system from Nintendo next spring, offering owners the unique chance to live out their Jedi fantasies by wielding the Wii Remote™ as a lightsaber while using the Nunchuk™ controller to torment foes with their Force™ powers.

The Force Unleashed casts players as Darth Vader's "Secret Apprentice" and promises to unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. The game's expansive story is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In it, players will assist the iconic villain in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi - and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny.

The Wii version, in development by Krome Studios, will also add an exclusive duel mode in which players can compete head-to-head with their friends to determine the ultimate Jedi Master.

"The Wii is a great platform for The Force Unleashed, because the console's motion-oriented controllers really bring the game to life," said Jim Ward, President of LucasArts. "We've worked hard to make the Wii version of the game unique in order to truly let you unleash the Force."

so a bad score?. Is the Xbox360/Ps3 version better? I just played the PS3 version and it was fun

this game has great graphics, and the story is a great filler between III and IV. I would give it an 8/10

This is why the Wii is better than the "Move" - because the best motion controls here (similar to MadWorld in a way) are within the nunchuk. The choking mechanism and the gameplay makes this a great adventure. Resident Evil 4 will always be the best motion controlled game on the Wii (mostly pointer) IMO, but this is not far behind. It got so much right. Disappointed to hear that they ruined SWFU2 with ruining these fantastic motion controls.

The story was great, and the action was fun and fast paced. The only problem was it was a little on the short side, but with tons of holocrons to collect it will keep you busy. The only other major flaw is you can't replay old levels. You just go back through the story in the order you played them, which helps in the story aspect (Only slightly) but ruins replay-ability.

I've have this on Xbox 360, but maybe I should get SWTFU2 for the Wii. I will enjoy swinging the remote like a lightsaber, and does it ever use the the motion in the nunchuck (I expect if you flick, you'll do a force blast). And you're saying that if Lucasarts only made it then it would have only been on Xbox 360 and PS3? So Lucasarts is one of those stupid gaming developers that dislike Wii? (Still,it was awesome on Xbox 360). I'll think about getting the sequel for the Wii.
