Review: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Shallow And Short, But Passable Starfiller - NL

From Nintendo Life: "Is Star Wars: The Force Unleashed worth picking up? Eh… potentially. What we have here is a shallow, short, and rather mediocre action game that’s relying awfully hard on nostalgia and the popularity of the Star Wars IP to draw in players. Based solely on its own merits, there’s little here that’s really worth your time. Simplistic level designs, weak combat, frequent quick time events, and low replay value make this one hard to recommend. It’s got a decent story and soundtrack, but neither of these things are good enough to outweigh the negatives. If you’re just looking for another Star Wars game to add to your collection, this certainly fits the bill; if you’re looking for a high-quality hack ‘n’ slash, it doesn’t. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is simply a passable game; not one we’d actively avoid, but you’re not missing much if you choose to skip it."

they used the wii as the basis for this. They'd have been better off using the PS3/360 instead.

Yes it is a wonder why they bothered.

My issue with a game like this is not the game itself -- it's an old game that offers a bit of fun but certainly I would not expect much. My issue is with the price. Fine, release a years-old game if you want, maybe some might want to check it out -- but it should be like $5.00, not $20.00. I find Nintendo especially is guilty of this practice of charging way too much for older, mediocre games.
