The Force feels quite leashed in the DS version of this Star Wars action game.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (Wii)

 

The Force Unleashed was a long time coming when it finally hit store shelves. Many people got hyped about the physics engine that LucasArts had been pushing with detailed destructible environments, but my guess is that it was simply the Star Wars name...

Generally subpar graphics; repetitive, linear gameplay

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

 

The Star Wars franchise is no stranger to over-hyped video game spin-offs that unfortunately (and often far too predictably) fail to set the world on fire upon arrival. Despite being host to an impressive library of material and that signature sci-fi...

The Force feels quite leashed in the DS version of this Star Wars action game.

Force abilities feel powerful ; Very interesting plot

Implementation of Force abilities feels limiting ; Too easy ; Unimpressive visuals ; Poor sound design ; Only around four hours long
