Be the Sith!

Ever want to be Darth Vader? Use the Force to throw Stormtroopers? Now you can!Star Wars: The Force Unleashed lets you play as a Dark Jedi and you kill anyone and anything in your way. I haven't had this much fun with a Star Wars game since Dark Forces. 

I think some of the other reviewers are right in that the game controls are awkward - particularly those bloody camera angles. I did take a star down for that. However, I haven't found it too difficult so far. It just takes a bit of getting used to. I spent some time in the training room first. In fact, overall, I really think the game makes good use of the Wii controls. There are a lot of force moves (my favorite so far is simply throwing objects at people). 

However, I don't think the criticism about it being too easy is justified. I think the point of an easier game is to let casual gamers play as well. The game does have different levels, so if Padawan is too easy, you can try Sith Lord difficulty. 

I do wish there had been a single-player dueling mode that I could play when I don't have anybody to play against. The dueling, so far as I can tell, is only two-player. 

For the price (just [...] dollars!), Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is a good deal of fun.Ever want to be Darth Vader? Use the Force to throw Stormtroopers? Now you can!

It was released on September 16th 2008 for all consoles and handhelds.       The Force Unleashed is a very important game in the Star Wars series because it bridges the gap between the two trilogies. (Between episode 3 and 4 for those who don't know) Players take controls of Starkiller, Vader's secret apprentice who is tasked with hunting down …
