The controls are great, the game is fun, it's easy to learn, and the graphics are on the high end of 'ok.' I just got the game yesterday and spent three hours playing last night. I couldn't seem to put it down. I would equate it to Starwars Battlefront 2 on the PS2 except that there's no shooting but instead you're playing the Jedi the entire time. You get to use the force in a variety of ways including opening doors, pounding things apart with blasts from your hands, using force lightning on enemies and machinery, mind tricking enemies into fighting each other, and using special force attacks with your light sabors such as throwing the sabors at enemies or other targets. You also get to pick enemies up with the force and throw them over the edge of the platforms out into the abyss.
- Controls are great.
- Lots of interesting things to play around with.
- Great storyline.
- Get to see different worlds/levels.
- On Medium play mode when you die you seem to have an infinite number of lives and pick up right where you left off.
- Auto save feature.
- Get to choose the colors and powers of your two light sabors as you pick up new crystals.
- Multiplayer modes!
- Sound effects/music are great
- Lots of movie scenes... feels like you are watching one of the movies, but playing it at the same time!
- Graphics just ok. Sometimes the character's facial expressions look a little funny.
- After a couple hours of gameplay the constant slicing people up with the sabor or killing them with the force gets a little tedious feeling. I would suggest playing the game in one hour increments, or 1 level at a time (about 30-40 minutes) and then coming back to play again later or the next day.
- No freedom in choosing your own destiny as in other Starwars games such as Knights of the Old Republic.
- I ordered the game thinking I would get to swing my wiimote around as the lightsabor, but that's not how it works in this one. You get to move your wiimote around in a variety of ways, but not for actual movement of the sabor.
- To really follow the storyline in this one you should pick up and play the first one. I didn't and so at times the people in this game seem confusing because I don't know who they are or where they came from, and the game assumes you already know these things.
- Occasionally you get to battle a big enemy (boss) but for the most part the gameplay cuts at that point and you watch a movie of him destroying robots, etc, with the help of you simply shaking the wiimote in whatever direction it asks you to. No real skill involved in defeating the big guys, although occasionally you do get to battle a monster or giant and have to figure out how to do it on your own, sort of like a puzzle and fighting all in one.
Overall rating is a 5. I like it a lot and I know my husband and our friends and I will have a lot of fun with it.
I got my copy here used for just a few dollars, so it's definitely a great buy for the price!
