  1.  Fun and Engaging, a Must Byu for Star Wars Fans


    Excellent game, really a recommended purchase for every Star Wars -loving Wii owner! The gameplay and engaging story make up for some PS2-level, non-textured graphics in some of the cutscenes. In-game graphics are fine, even beautiful in many places, and the physics work really well. It is so fun to toss stormtroopers and around with a flick of a nunchuck. Boss battles feel epic, from roque jedis to sith lords and junk behemonts. The story moves on with intense pace and there are nice suprises behind every corner.

    Some of the "professional" reviews forget to mention Wii-specific duel mode. Fun with a friend and extra nunchuck, but sadly the duel mode always needs two human players.

    Camera works mostly well, and you can always clear some space by jumping and using the Force. Some reviews whine about camera also, but so far I haven't had any mentionable problems with it, and I'm not a 24/7 gamer.

    The age rating is mysteriously high, there's no blood or gore and enemies are mostly non-human fantasy figures. Yes, the theme is dark, but come on, 16+?

    The main point is, that I REALLY dig the Wii control method for this game. At one point I yanked the nunchuck chord off the wiimote as I was so in to the game and tried to perform a Force Maelstorm -move as the character does it, by throwing hands straight to the left and right. There is no going back to sitting on the couch with a classics controller after getting a lightsaber in your right hand and force powers in your left!

    By all means It's not a perfect game, such as Super Mario Galaxy or The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, but the intense fun factor and fan service make up the 5-star rating!
