Designed from the ground up as a counterpart to Star Wars: Clone Wars both visually and narratively, Lightsaber Duels follows the plot line of the animated feature and series closely. Here players will encounter familiar faces representing both sides of the Force, as well as many new ones, as they take on missions on behalf of the Jedi Council, or in spite of it, during the troubling times of the Clone Wars. The highlight of these missions will be the memorable lightsaber duels and the Jedi and Sith players will battle against in them. These duels are designed to mirror as closely as possible the encounters faced in the animated adventures, to the point that they are even introduced by cinematic segments pulled right from the series and feature film. In addition, utilizing writing talent from both of these related projects, as well as a majority of the voice talent as well in a truly collaborative manner, players can expect to see things in the game that eventually make it to the TV show and vice versa. Gameplay
One of the most anticipated uses of the Wii Remote and Nunchuck controller configuration in the history of the Wii gaming system, gameplay in Lightsaber Duels is all about introducing players into the civilized but deadly world of hand to hand Jedi combat techniques. That means no blasters here. As the game's subtitle suggests, whether playing as a servant of the will of the Jedi Council or the Dark Side of the Force, players will wield a lightsaber in one hand and the power of the force in the other. This is where the Wii Remote and Nunchuck come in. Far from requiring players to build up their skills and knowledge of the Force, the goal of the control scheme of Lightsaber Duels is actually designed to make even beginning gamers a force to be reckoned from the first duel they face. The Wii Remote controls your lightsaber through a series of tiered attacks. Left and right motions of the remote equate to light damage, up and down slashes represent medium damage and stabbing motions do maximum damage. The remote's trigger provides a blocking mechanism, while the Nunchuck controls your Force powers. In addition, each character possesses unique combo abilities, but keeping with the simplicity of the control scheme all players need to do is memorize these simple combos to take advantage of their power. Key Game Features:
- Fight the most memorable duels from The Clone Wars feature film and TV series.
- Wield your Wii Remote like a lightsaber and experience first-hand the unique weapon of the Jedi Knights with intuitive controls, so no matter what your gaming experience you can become a lightsaber master.
- Play as your favorite Clone Wars hero or villain - from familiar characters like Anakin Skywalker and General Grievous to new faces like Ahsoka Tano and Asajj Ventress - each with a unique fighting style and set of skills.
- Exploit your interactive surroundings to defeat your opponent: slice down pillars and Force throw them against your foe.
- 2-player multiplayer support in Battle Modes
- 60 frame per second performance ensure smooth gameplay.
- Duel your way through significant Clone Wars locations, such as Tatooine and Teth.
In Star Wars The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels players can take on the role of one of ten characters. These include, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano, Mace Windu, Count Dooku, Asajj Ventress, General Grievous, Kit Fisto, Yoda and Plo Koon. Each of these possess their own abilities and can unlock items as the game progresses. In addition, with over 4,000 lines of dialog recoded for the game, characters are programmed to respond to other characters based on their relationship, not randomly, making for the truest Jedi experience yet.

I will admit that after the first day of gameplay, I could have easily fallen into the "toss it aside as shallow" mindset as most reviewers here, but I decided I'd completely beat the game first. Well, I challenge the people who have reviewed this game negatively to do the following things:
1. Play the game on Jedi Knight or Master instead of being chumps on Padawan. Once Dooku or Obi-Wan hand you your rear a few times, you will realize that mindless wii-mote swinging is not the proper way to play.
2. Once you do this and realize that you might want to actually think a little, go ahead and try to complete all of the challenges to unlock the other characters. The challenges will force you to use strategy & timing, along with having to play at a higher difficulty. You will then gather a greater appreciation of movement, timing, and force energy usage/conservation.
3. Then find a friend or family member who will do both 1 & 2 and actually care to play! This game becomes immediately 10 times better when playing against a real gamer. My newfound appreciation after 3 months of owning this game has come from finally convincing one of my gaming buddies (whom I reguarly engage in hours of Fight Night 3, Madden, and Street Fighter) to get into this game and really learn how to play. We now have consistent 5-8 minute per round duels with crafty parrying, flipping, and force attacks with the varying fighting styles of the different characters.Read more ›
The problem in my opinion is that they put in all these Force abilities and special moves that make it so you can't use the controller like a real lightsaber handle. That effectively makes the whole point of the game moot. I mean I had more fun pretend lightsaber fighting with old wrapping paper tubes with my brother when we were kids than this game. And those were a lot cheaper.
Someday maybe LucasArts will get a real lightsaber duel game out there--one that actually lets you get Vader and Luke to replicate the good movies--but this isn't it. Save your money until then.
That is all.
That being said - it is fun, just don't have these super high expectations that a Wii doesn't have the power to deliver.
Negative: The point of this game is supposed to be to wield the wiimote like a lightsaber, you will do none of that.
First, the nunchuck has to be attached for game play, and this restricts any realistic attacks you would make.
Second, you are instructed to hold the wiimote horizontally (buttons facing ceiling), with flicks of the wrist up, down, left, right registering as attacks. It turns into some lame fencing exercise, not lightsaber duels.
Campaign mode is easily beaten in 1 hour. It is highly structured and leaves zero options or strategy to the player. It chooses your character and opponent, cuts to empty shouting matches with splices of clone wars footage, and begins the fight. There are no breaks between fights and no where to stop to save and continue later.
Might provide entertainment for very young kids, but has no value for a mature gamer.
I watched as my older nephew (8 at the time) played this for the first time. After about 10 minutes of playing, he wanted to do something else. I don't blame him.
It is very repetitive. You are dueling with a bad guy. Then when you beat him, it's on to the next bad guy. Over and over.
After about 4 duels, the dialog starts to repeat (the insults they say to each other).
It really isn't very exciting to a kid.
