GameSpy: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Wii Review

GameSpy writes: "A wise puppet once said, "A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack." Next to the whole "no dating" rule, that had to be the worst part about being a Jedi. While you're sitting around meditating and levitating rocks at the Jedi Temple, the bad kids at the Sith School across town are tossing dudes off ledges, choking punks from the other side of the room, and shooting lighting from their fingernails. Maybe it's not so hard to see why Anakin made the switch to the dark side.

Seeing as how the vast majority of "Star Wars" games have us playing as some goody-goody hero character, it's not too often that we get to bust some heads with the cool Force powers. That's a problem that The Force Unleashed sets out to fix. In a similar setup to the Nintendo 64 game Shadows of the Empire, TFU is a new multimedia "Star Wars" event that features a host of new products (like toys, comics, books, etc.) centered around a new videogame chapter in George Lucas' beloved universe."
