IGN: The Force Unleashed Wii Hands-On

Last time IGN went hands-on with Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, they were cautiously optimistic despite the game needing some serious improvements. The combat wasn't really there yet, the visuals were pretty basic, and Wii's "exclusive" duel mode looked to be just a snippet of what the PSP crowd was getting with their pocket offering this year. The game was fun, but it was also a bit too weak in its preliminary state.

What IGN played this time around in the comfort of the LucasArts development studio, however, was a much more encouraging package all around. As part of IGN's exclusive "Force Unleashed Week" here at IGN, they had a chance to go a bit more in-depth with the updated E3 builds of Star Wars, and displayed proudly next to the 360 and PS3 versions of the game was an updated, far more polished Wii build.

The story is too old to be commented.

When the voice starts talking in the first video, i really have this FABLE(Xbox) feeling.

0_o VS battles look epic.

It looks like it's a decent game, but it's pretty obvious that no extra work was done to make the Wii version look as good as it could have. This just looks like a really good looking PS2 game. Gameplay looks fun, but of course there's no 1/1 lightsaber movement, and the system they are using sounds less effective and immersive than that of No More Heroes. At this point, it looks like a rent for me. :/
