UGO: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Wii/DS/PSP Review

UGO writes: "After long months of hype and drip-fed information about the story, Lucasarts' Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is finally out. Rusty's review of the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 versions went up yesterday. Today we're going to look instead at the "other" TFUs, for Wii, Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable. Each version of the game is marked by some featureset which makes it unique. In the case of the PS360 versions, it's the combined might of Euphoria and DMM working to create a Force-sensitive's playground. So how do the rest measure up?

Clearly, motion controls are at the heart of the differences between the Wii version of TFU and the rest. Sadly, they do not offer 1:1 movement for the Apprentice's lightsaber. Rather, the game reads left-right, up-down and forward-backward movements to translate saber swings accordingly. The controls resemble those in Soulcalibur Legends, but they're… you know… good. Once you get the timing down anyway. While lightsaber combat in the other versions boils down to a mashfest, the Wii's TFU requires the patience and grace of, well, of a Jedi."
