The Star Wars saga will continue in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, a videogame developed by LucasArts, which casts players as Darth Vader's "Secret Apprentice" and promises to unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. The expansive story, created under direction from George Lucas, is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In it, players will assist the iconic villain in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi - and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny.

As its name implies, The Force Unleashed completely re-imagines the scope and scale of the Force. The Wii version will not only give you a solid story-line developed by LucasArts involving the Darth Vader's secret apprentice, but you'll experience a new style of gameplay only the Wii can offer. With the Wiimote and Nunchuck you'll be able to battle your way through your enemies utilizing your Lightsaber attacks and Force powers. Not only can you experience this new control system in story mode, but you can also try your Jedi skills against a friend in the Wii, "Battle Mode." Joining the Dark Side doesn't seem like such a bad idea after all.

Game Features:
  • During the period between Episodes III and IV, players hunt Jedi in the role of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice.
  • Unleash and upgrade the Secret Apprentice's four core Force powers - Force push, grip, repulse and lightning - throughout the course of the game, and combine them for ultra-destructive, never-before-seen combos.
  • Examples of unleashing the Force in ways never thought possible:
    • The Secret Apprentice won't just Force push enemies into walls - he'll Force push enemies through walls.
    • The Secret Apprentice won't just Force grip foes to throw them aside - he'll Force grip them in midair, zap them with lightning, then drop them to the ground to explode like a bomb.
  • In addition to new adversaries created just for the game, such as fugitive Jedi and Force-sensitive Felucians, players will also confront and associate with familiar faces from the Star Wars films, including Darth Vader.
  • Visit locations such as Episode III's Wookiee homeworld Kashyyyk and the floral Felucia, the junk planet Raxus Prime, plus an Imperial TIE fighter construction facility.
  • The Wii system's "Battle Mode," a one on one fighting arena simliar to the classic game, Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi.
  • Use the Wiimote to slash and pierce your enemies with your Jedi Lightsaber while you use the Wii Nunchuk to disable other opponents with your Force Powers.
  • LucasArts is preparing an unprecedented promotional effort around the launch of The Force Unleashed, encompassing a full line of toys and game-based action figures from Hasbro, as well as a full publishing program from Dark Horse, Del Rey and Palace Press.

Meet the Cast
The Star Wars Saga will continue in 2008 with LucasArts' biggest-ever video game event. Set during the "dark times" between Episodes III and IV, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed portrays the previously untold story of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice -- and now you can put a face to that mysterious character as well as the major supporting cast members as LucasArts unveils the actors set to star in The Force Unleashed.

The Cast of The Force Unleashed

The Technology of The Force Unleashed
With The Force Unleashed, LucasArts not only introduces a new chapter in the Star Wars saga, but also pushes the Wii's game engine to deliver amazing detail and realism only found in a Star Wars title. You will experience gameplay and the Force like you never had before.

Product Description

The next chapter in the Star Wars saga, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, tells the story of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice, a mysterious figure trained by the menacing Sith Lord, to hunt down the last of the Jedi. Set in the dark times between Episodes III and IV, the story is both a continuation of the prequel trilogy -- exploring the aftermath of Order 66, which called for the immediate execution of all Jedi, and focusing on the continued rise of Darth Vader -- and a direct bridge to the Original Trilogy. The Force Unleashed will forever change the fate of the Galaxy and explain key plot points that directly lead into events in Star Wars: A New Hope. With The Force Unleashed , LucasArts not only introduces a new chapter in the Star Wars saga, but also two completely new and innovative technologies -- Digital Molecular Matter by Pixelux Entertainment and euphoria by NaturalMotion Ltd. These groundbreaking technologies combine with Havoc physics to create true next-gen game play and the Force like it's never been seen or experienced before.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Force is unleashed on my Wii September 17, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The story behind this new entry into the Star Wars universe starts with Darth Vader being sent to Kashyyyk by Palps in order to track down a Jedi that survived Order 66 and the Jedi purge. Vader lands on the planet in his shuttle, and you proceed to kick some serious Wookie butt. The Stormtroopers you see are a nice blend of the Clone Trooper outfit and the newer Storm Trooper outfit, you can see the progression. From their sound, I think the clones aren't in use anymore by this time. The main reason I say that is that they sound a little scared when they status Vader on things, but the whole difference in the Clones and Storm Troopers is a discussion for another geek day. Vader finds the rogue Jedi, and you get your first real battle. Once Vader defeats him and is about to deliver the final blow, the lightsaber is Force Pulled out of his hand and he turns around to see . . . a little boy, maybe 5 years old I would say. Vader feels that the Force in the kid and stands there for a minute thinking of what to do and takes back his lightsaber. The Stormtroopers come up with their guns trained on the kid, and Vader turns around to face them. Cut to the kid's scared face as you hear Vader's lightsaber fire up and takes out everyone - rouge Jedi and Stormtroopers alike. With no witneses, he leads the boy away to become his Secret Apprentice. As the Apprentice, you'll go on missions to find other rouge Jedi, and see how the Rebellion came to be. That's about all I know on the story so far, it's as far in game as I was able to get tonight.

First off, as expected, the graphics aren't anywhere close to what I'm hearing the PS3 and XBox 360 are. That's ok, because I think the graphics are still pretty impressive on this game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Tech Demo, Not So Hot Game September 17, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
So, I just couldn't resist. Bought the game on release day (at BestBuy) and now have played through a bunch of missions. The good:

The concept of the game is fantastic -- who doesn't love running around with a lightsaber and force pushing stormtroopers?
The graphics are more than adequate -- I'm sure not as good at the 360/PS3 but the game still looks pretty darn good.
The purchasing of new force powers with force points works well.
The story line is very good, as is the voice acting.
The actual control motions are well thought out, and pretty natural.

The problem is that the mechanics just aren't there.
The big problems with the game are:

1. Too easy -- there's really no consequence to dying. You just are resurrected and go about your merry way.
2. The camera -- I think that the camera angles are what really hinder the game. This game would be ideal from a first person perspective, but is played entirely in the third person. As a result, the camera angles are critical, and LucasArts' coding is just not up to snuff. The camera often looks in directions you don't want, especially in tight spaces and with lots of enemies. Also, since the commands/combos are all dependent on moving the Wiimote/Nunchuck in a particular direction IN RELATION TO YOUR CHARACTER the controls become confusing when the camera is not oriented over your shoulder. If you're fighting a boss it's not a big issue as you can lock the camera on your target. This doesn't really apply in a room full of stormtroopers, though.
3.

4.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Star Wars Experience Ever September 24, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I don't want to echo what a lot of other reviewers have already said. Yes, the graphics in this game are definitely inferior to the 360 and PS3 versions BUT I can't imagine the other versions of the game being nearly as satisfying an experience as this one. Pushing a button to do execute a force push just can't feel the same as actually doing a pushing motion with your hand and seeing your enemies fly back on the screen. The camera is definitely an issue, a lot of times you will find yourself waving your light saber like a madman at enemies you can't see because the camera is out of position. You definitely DO feel powerful in this game as a Sith Lord but at times it seems like you loose a lot of health for just a few blaster hits but this could just because I'm still in the early stages of the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid Star Wars Game on Wii September 17, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The game play is very scripted with premade vitory and battle cut scenes. The camera is slow, but you can change the camera's turn rate in the settings.

The force controls in the nunchuck are fantastic. You buy updgrades to your force powers as gain force points by killing your enemies. You can also find upgrades hidden throughout the levels.

I picked up the game on release day and played for a couple of hours. My arms hurt. It's just about impossible to sit down while playing this game, your arms are so involved in the game play for the Wii version.

If you're looking for the best grapics, try the XBox 360, or PS3 version. If you want the most interactive play, grab the Wii version, you won't be dissapointed.
