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...

Very fun gameplay; good use of motion controls; strong use of Star Wars license

Generally subpar graphics; repetitive, linear gameplay

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Review


Neoseeker's Chad provides an in-depth review for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, the best-selling game yet in the celebrated Star Wars franchise.

The game is very short, only taking me a little more than five hours of total play time to beat every level without collecting all of the Jedi Holocrons within each level. After going back and getting most of them, the game was starting to become...

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (DS)


Oh my. That was my first reaction upon seeing the graphics in the Nintendo DS version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed: Oh my. It only goes downhill from there.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Review


TVG turns to the Dark Side in this bridging instalment to Lucas' epic space franchise...

Strong storyline for Star Wars fans ; Solid combat combos ; More engaging than anticipated

Poor enemy AI ; Showcase Star Destroyer sequence is poor ; Little room for replayability

A seriously surprising entry into Star Wars canon, the storylines is largely strong, and whilst there are several issues with the gameplay, The Force Unleashed is not the Phantom Menace we thought it would be.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II


Sith apprentice Starkiller is very much alive -- as a clone -- in this follow-up to the best-selling Force Unleashed. Continuing the events chronicled in 2008's game, Force Unleashed II has the embittered antihero on a quest to reunite with Juno Eclipse,

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...

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed


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

Out of control

Combat actions are executed by tapping icons displayed on the touchscreen. Force push and pull line the left side of the screen, whereas lightsaber throw and Force lightning sit on the right. You're able to jump and swipe at enemies with your...
