Star Wars is bankable. You know it, I know it, and LucasArts sure a heck knows it. But if they're going to keep making games like this one, I think we can all rest a bit easier knowing that the future of Star Wars games is pretty safe. If you're not a fan of the saga, you may not be as swept away by this game as some, and you probably didn't read this far into the article anyway. But if you're like me and enjoy anything Star Wars related, you're sure to get some fun out of the deal.
Recomendado juego de Star Wars para Wii, sobre todo para aquellos aprendices de Jedi que estén dando vuelta y quieran sentir el poder de la fuerza en sus manos, esta versión es la que más cerca esta de ello, buen intento por parte de la gente de Krome.
Con distinta suerte según la plataforma, El Poder de la Fuerza nos propone pasarnos al lado oscuro dentro de una mecánica de juego adictiva, duradera, entretenida y cuya monotonía logra salvarse gracias a una trama interesante. Los que dispongan de una Wii, están de enhorabuena, puesto que moverán su wiimote y nunchuk como nunca a fin de imitar los movimientos de un Jedi, pero el resto tampoco se sentirá defraudado, aunque los poseedores de una Nintendo DS deberán de pensarse mucho si adquirir un producto que se encuentra muy lejos de la calidad de las otras versiones.
Whether you're looking at the lack of modes, the clunky presentation, or the PS2-like visuals, there's just so much in Force Unleashed that you wish was better, but ultimately ends up being just passable. The combat is great, the game is extremely entertaining at times (if you're a Star Wars fan, you'd do well to pick it up, or at least rent it), but it's never truly great in any stretch of the imagination. We look forward to what Krome and LucasArts could do with future Wii titles, especially considering the awesome potential of Wii MotionPlus, but as far as Force Unleashed is concerned, the game is a fun but flawed action game, and nothing more. If you're looking for this type of game on Wii, give it a rental. If you're a big Star Wars fan, you'll enjoy it. If you want a polished, well-rounded effort overall, you won't find it here.

The motion-based controls are precise and easy to pick up, but the action isn't as explosive, and the cutscene details are quite crude by comparison. If you really want to see this game in all its glory, play it on one of the other systems. However, if the Wii is your only system, this version is still worth a look.
In addition to the motion controls, the Wii version of TFU also offers a two-player duel mode. There isn’t a great deal of depth here, though the arenas – particularly those modeled after classic Star Wars environs – offer plenty of fan service and are filled with all manner of junk to fling at your human foes. There are also a fair number of unlockable characters pulled from different corners of the Star Wars mythos. In the end, we feel just a little less ambivalent about this Wii take on TFU than we do about the PS360 versions; best-of-the-bunch controls and an entertaining multiplayer mode are offset by buggy AI, piss-poor auto-targeting and generally drab visuals.
The Force defintely fluctuates with Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. The visuals reveal sore spots from the transition to Wii, and the enormous environments can be repetitive. This version, however, also includes excellent Wii remote controls courtesy of Krome Studios. The ability to easily control your lightsaber adds a nice bonus to the gameplay. The story also shines by divulging further details of the Star Wars universe, including popular characters from both trilogies. Thus, like the game’s story, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed falls into a nice medium between both trilogies critically. It delivers a solid, but not spectacular, experience.
This is an above average action game with the added bonus of the Star Wars theme. The fighting is mostly good and the story is compelling. The controls could be tighter and the camera viewpoint better designed. And, the graphics could really have had more detail. It's a bit short, too. Still, Star Wars fans who like action games will probably enjoy playing this game over the weekend with some friends.
"Star Wars: The Force Unleashed" é um interessante capítulo intermediário entre as trilogias cinematográficas, pelo menos ao que diz respeito ao seu roteiro. Como o jogo, perde pontos preciosos pela apresentação pobre e alguns problemas de execução. Mas seus momentos de ação conseguem prender a atenção e os controles funcionam bem, especialmente os do Wii que criam uma sensação singular. Para os fãs da saga é uma boa pedida, assim para aqueles jogadores que estão cansados da atual avalanche de jogos casuais no mercado atual.
Force Unleashed may not be the mind-blowingly awesome "Star Wars" game that it was hyped to be, but thanks to some cool play mechanics and good use of the Wii Remote it's still a fun (if flawed) ride. With a bit of tweaking it could be great, so hopefully a sequel will pop up sometime down the road.
If you're a Star Wars fan or just looking to torture enemies in creative ways, The Force Unleashed is definitely for you. It could've used improvements in presentation and more boss fight interaction, but it's still a worthwhile game. Enjoy those Force powers while they last.

Despite some really irritating problems, The Force Unleashed isn't a bad game. The Wii controls are solid, and blazing a trail of destruction with the Force powers is a great game premise. But there are just some aspects of the game that feel half-baked and poorly-done. For example, the character development sections where you upgrade various aspects of Starkiller feel tacked-on and don't seem to have any real bearing on gameplay. Ultimately, it's a game that's going to appeal most to hardcore Star Wars fans, thanks to the solid storytelling and high-quality music. If you're looking for a basic action game, though, you could do a lot worse than Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
The game has had mixed reviews, insane levels of hype and subsequent backlash, and a storied history behind it that can’t be avoided. However, anyone able to throw that all aside and enjoy the game for what it’s worth will be satisfied. If you like combat-heavy action games and don’t mind a little repetition, and you consider yourself a Star Wars fan, you’ll have a great time with The Force Unleashed. It’s far from perfect, but as the score up top reflects, it’s worth the ride.

Die Macht ist schon eine Wucht. Wie ein ausgewachsener Hurrikan schlägt der Schüler eine Schneise der Zerstörung durch seine Gegnerschar. Spielerisch bedeutet das nicht selten puren Chaos, weil auch die Technik nicht immer perfekt mitspielt. Grafisch beeindrucken vor allem die Zwischenfilme, in denen eine spannende Star-Wars-Geschichte erzählt wird. Allerdings unterbrechen sie den Spielablauf auch oft auf unsanfte und störende Weise. Die Spielabschnitte "Raxus Prime" und "Felucia" sind dagegen eher langweilig und in matschigen Farben gehalten. Dennoch ein "guter" Machtkampf.
Souffrant d'une réalisation décevante, l'adaptation du Pouvoir de la Force sur Wii ne semble pas avoir fait l'objet d'autant de soins que les versions next-gen. Gageons néanmoins que le soft saura séduire une fois de plus les fans de Star Wars à défaut de satisfaire pleinement les amateurs de beat'em all.
So if you're hankering to wave around your remote and slash up Jawas, this is your chance, though The Force Unleashed may not be as raucously entertaining as you may have expected. Nevertheless, if you've got five or six hours to kill, this is a decent way to spend them, particularly if you're a Star Wars devotee looking to fill in the gaps between Episodes III and IV. It's too bad that so many annoyances and all that random arm waving get in the way because they detract from a game that had the potential to be a lot more.
It is unfortunate that the setbacks are so blatant, because the title really draws from the rich Star Wars mythos and makes you experience the power of the force. But with the lack of gameplay polish, The Force Unleashed, like the secret apprentice himself, simply doesn't always play well with the other children..
Bref, Le Pouvoir de la Force voit ses forces et faiblesses équilibrées différemment sur Wii, mais sans gommer des imperfections globales qui réserveront le jeu aux accros de la saga de Lucas.
The days of Jedi Knight, Rogue Squadron, and TIE Fighter are quickly becoming distant memories of what it was like to sit down and feel like we really were in a galaxy far, far away -- The Force Unleashed on the Wii can't hold a candle to those classics.
Just don't. Seriously. Don't. If you have any taste at all, it'll infuriate you. Avoid if you're a Star Wars fan as well, because it makes Darth Vader seem like more of a complete pussy than the prequel films.
