CSM: Star Wars The Force Unleashed Review

CSM Writes:

"Along with its stunning widescreen, high-definition graphics on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the game excels in how you use your learned Force powers. Specifically, the developers at LucasArts did an extraordinarily good job in making players feel powerful thanks to superhuman abilities, including the ability to push around huge objects without touching them or damage things by emitting lightning blasts through your fingertips. Players can also combine these rewarding powers for a dramatic effect, such as using a Force grip on someone's neck, lifting them in the air and then zapping them silly before tossing them into a nearby tree. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game play exactly the same, but the Nintendo Wii version lets you swing around the wireless and motion-sensing Wii Remote and nunchuk to pull off the lightsaber moves and force effects."

"If Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was rated by special effects alone, the sci-fi adventure would garner unanimous praise by video game reviewers. But as with some criticisms of the iconic feature films, not everyone will find substance underneath the style. But it sure is a fun ride and one that Star Wars fanatics will revel in as they appreciate its gorgeous graphics and impressive physics effects while turning a blind eye to the game's shortcomings. Visually speaking, the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are much better (in high-definition) than the PS2, Wii, and handheld versions of the game. An iPhone version is also available at the Apple App Store."
